Player Outlook

Jones was the best rookie quarterback in 2021, but he wasn't exactly a star Fantasy option. He's hoping to change that in his sophomore campaign. While we expect better production from Jones in 2022, he's still just a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in the majority of leagues. That means in one-quarterback leagues he should not be drafted, but he could become a waiver wire option during the season. And in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, Jones is worth drafting near Round 6. The Patriots gave Jones two new weapons in DeVante Parker and rookie Tyquan Thornton, and hopefully they help Jones become more consistent with his positive production. In 2021, he had six games with at least 20 Fantasy points but nine games with 13 points or less. The Patriots will be a run-heavy team, which hurts Jones, but he could be a surprise Fantasy option as the season goes on. If that happens, add him off waivers in one-quarterback leagues.

Player News
  • As Jones approaches his second NFL season, the quarterback's increased leadership has caught the eye of his teammates, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. "It's just at another level now," receiver Kendrick Bourne noted of the leadership Jones has displayed this offseason. "He's more comfortable, more confident. He knows what's going on, and the muscle memory is there [from having gone through it] -- OTAs, then camp, and the season. He's just more locked in, more secure in his position." Jones, who Reiss indicates is a candidate to become a team captain in advance of Week 1, is also noticeably thinner these days due to a changed diet, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports. Meanwhile, the 2021 first-rounder hopes to add some muscle to to his 6-foot-3 frame in order to better withstand hits as well as improve his arm strength. This coming season, Jones, who turns 24 in September, will continue to helm an attack that figures to be fueled by the RB duo of Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson, but the Patriots' offseason trade for DeVante Parker and the drafting of speedy Tyquan Thornton does add to the team's solid array of passing targets. There's definitely room for Jones to make strides in Year 2, but his fantasy upside remains tied to New England's approach on offense now that long-time coordinator Josh McDaniels has moved on.

  • Jones completed 24 of 38 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 47-17 loss to Buffalo. Though New England was overmatched in nearly all aspects of its wild-card matchup, Jones was unable to get the offense moving while the game remained within reach. His play during the first offensive possession was an exception, as he found Hunter Henry for a 30-yard completion and also scrambled for a 16-yard gain. However, he was picked off by Micah Hyde in the end zone to end the rally. After that, positive plays were few and far between, as Jones ended the first half with only 10 completions for 106 yards. He managed to pad his stat line with a pair of touchdown passes to Kendrick Bourne with the Patriots down by at least three scores the entire second half. Despite the loss, Jones showed promise during his rookie season and will be back under center to lead the New England offense for the 2022 campaign.

  • Jones completed 20 of 30 passes for 261 yards and a touchdown with an interception in Sunday's 33-24 loss to the Dolphins. The rookie had a shaky start to the game, tossing a pick-six to Xavien Howard midway through the first quarter, but Jones shook it off and rallied his team from an early 14-point deficit to get the Patriots within a field goal late in the fourth before the Dolphins scored on a fumble return on New England's final possession. Jones wraps up an impressive rookie campaign with a 67.6 percent completion rate, 22:13 TD:INT and 3,801 passing yards, and he'll lead the Pats into the wild-card round as they face AFC East rivals the Bills on Saturday.

  • Jones completed 22 of 30 passes for 227 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Patriots' 50-10 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 12 yards. Jones took advantage of a highly favorable matchup to exorcise some recent demons, posting his first interception-free effort in the last three games. The rookie had completed under 60.0 percent of his throws in each of the last two contests as well, but he was accurate early and often Sunday on the way to helping lead three first-half scoring drives. Jones spread the wealth on his touchdown throws, getting little-used Kristian Wilkerson into the end zone from six and 20 yards out and also connecting with the much more familiar Jakobi Meyers for a four-yard scoring toss just before halftime. The strong performance undoubtedly was a confidence builder for Jones ahead of the postseason, one he'll look to build on against the Dolphins in a Week 18 road clash.

  • Jones completed 14 of 32 passes for 145 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 33-21 loss to the Bills. He added 33 yards on six rushing attempts. Jones eclipsed the 19 passing yards he mustered against the Bills earlier this month, but the rookie wasn't much better in this one. He finished the first half just 5-for-13 with 47 yards and an interception, as the Patriots trailed 17-7 heading into the locker room. Damien Harris kept the team in it with three rushing touchdowns, but Jones continued to struggle through the air in the second half, fittingly snuffing out New England's slim comeback hopes with another interception on his final pass of the game. Jones has been a competent game manager most weeks while working in an ideal situation for a rookie quarterback, but he has struggled when called upon to play catch-up rather than nurse a lead. Luckily for Jones, the Patriots are unlikely to fall behind in Week 17 against the 2-13 Jaguars.
