Lions' Christian Jones: Major uptick in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded six tackles (five solo) and a sack across 59 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

After being limited to only 27 defensive snaps in the season-opener, Jones saw a major uptick in action Sunday. The linebacker played 92 percent of the Lions' defensive snaps as a starter and tied Jarrad Davis for the lead in tackles. After a strong outing on an otherwise disappointing day, Jones has a good chance of seeing a similar workload Sunday night against the Patriots.

Christian Jones: Heading to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones will sign a two-year, $7.75 contract with the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jones was moved into a starting role for the Bears last season due to linebacker injuries and he managed to record 90 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games. He should compete for a starting role in Detroit, a team that struggled at the linebacking position last season.

Bears' Christian Jones: Posts three tackles in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones collected three stops in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings, ending the season with 90 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.

Jones became a regular part of the defense in Week 5 when the Bears dealt with injuries at linebacker, and in the following eight games he was an IDP star by averaging a shade under eight tackles while notching a pair of sacks. Unfortunately, the coaching staff moved him back into a reserve role over the last four games of the season, making him a non-factor for fantasy managers. He'll enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, but if he lands a starting job he should be a weekly fantasy starter.

Bears' Christian Jones: Huge effort in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones notched 13 tackles (10 solo) -- including a sack -- in Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers.

Jones continues to be a huge playmaker for the Bears, with Sunday's tally marking his highest tackle total of the season. With three sacks over his last five games and at least seven tackles in seven of his eight contests, he's become a borderline elite IDP option.
