  • Bears' Justin Jones: Up to 4.5 sacks this season

    Jones tallied three tackles and a sack in the Bears' 27-16 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. Jones has 3.5 sacks over his last six games, which has coincided with the Bears' defense's showing vast improvement. However, his tackle totals have been inconsistent on a weekly basis, making him a volatile weekly IDP option.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Collects second sack of season

    Jones tallied four tackles, including a sack, in the Bears' 16-13 win over the Panthers on Thursday. Jones has posted between two and four tackles in seven of 10 games while adding two sacks on the season. He remains a steady floor play at defensive tackle in IDP leagues.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Big tackle numbers

    Jones tallied seven tackles in the Bears' 19-13 loss to the Vikings on Sunday. Jones came into this game averaging two tackles per game with a high of four, so his seven tackles represented a huge game for the defensive tackle. It's likely that this performance is an aberration for the six-year veteran who is coming off a career-high 52 tackles last season.

  • Bears' Justin Jones: Pops up on injury report

    Jones (hip) was a limited participant during the Bears' practice Thursday. Jones appears to have picked up a hip injury after not being listed on the Bears' injury report Wednesday, though the nature of this issue is still unclear. The defensive tackle recorded 19 tackles and one sack while playing all but 20 of his 185 snaps on defense through four games this season. If Jones' status declines or stays the same during practice Friday, then Mike Pennel and Armon Watts could see increased usage this Sunday against Minnesota.

  • Chargers' Justin Jones: Sack and fumble recovery in win

    Jones recorded five tackles (four solo) along with a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 37-21 win over the Giants. Jones has now recorded a sack in each of his last two games as the young pass rusher continues to perform at a high level in the absence of Linval Joseph (illness). The 25-year-old recovered his second fumble of the season, setting up the Chargers in great field position, which led to a touchdown drive. In Thursday night's upcoming matchup against the Chiefs, Jones will need to be able to pressure Patrick Mahomes or it could be a long evening for the Los Angeles defense.

  • Chargers' Justin Jones: Solid second season

    Jones posted 30 tackles (18 solo) and a forced fumble across 12 games this season. A shoulder injury kept Jones off the field from Week 7-10, but it was an otherwise encouraging season for the 2018 third-round pick as the nose tackle stepped into the starting role opposite Brandon Mebane and performed above expectations, particularly against the run.
