  • Mac Jones Erupts For Career-High 382 Yards In Thanksgiving Loss

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 28-of-39 passes for 382 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Thanksgiving night loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He put up his best game of the season and averaged 9.8 yards per attempt. The 24-year-old connected with Hunter Henry and Nelson Agholor for a pair of touchdown passes. It was his second 300-yard and first multi-touchdown effort this season. He has thrown for 1,768 yards, six touchdowns, and seven interceptions through eight games in 2022. Despite the terrific performance, Jones remains a borderline QB2 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

  • Mac Jones An Option In Superflex Leagues Against Minnesota

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has achieved modest results over the last three games. He has thrown for 587 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception during that span. The 24-year-old will look to turn things around against the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving night. Minnesota was torched by Dallas in Week 11 and ranks 19th in pass DVOA this season. The former first-round pick has thrown just four touchdowns over seven games in 2022. Despite the plus matchup, the Patriots have relied on the running game and defense, as New England is 25th in the NFL in pass attempts. Jones is mainly a shaky option in superflex leagues only.

  • Mac Jones Throws For 246 Yards In Low-Scoring Win Over Jets

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 23-of-27 pass attempts for 246 yards in Sunday's 10-3 win over the New York Jets. Jones wasn't asked to do much in a defensive battle and failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 7. The 24-year-old has thrown for 1,386 yards and a 4:7 TD: INT ratio over seven games in 2022. New England continues to rely on the running game, making Jones mainly an option in superflex leagues in Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving night.

  • Mac Jones Not On Fantasy Radar Against The Jets

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has yet to eclipse 200 passing yards in back-to-back games. He has struggled this season, throwing for 1,140 yards and a 4:7 TD: INT ratio over six weeks in 2022. The 24-year-old has a tough matchup against the New York Jets in Week 11. New York's defense ranks fourth in pass DVOA and 21st against opposing quarterbacks this season. New England relies on the running game between Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris, limiting Jones' fantasy appeal. Jones should be avoided in most formats and is mainly an option in superflex leagues.

  • Mac Jones Throws Touchdown Pass In Win Over Colts

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 20-of-30 pass attempts for 147 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He connected with Rhamondre Stevenson for a three-yard score during the second quarter for his only touchdown in Sunday's victory. Jones had modest results as New England's defense stymied the Colts and held Indianapolis to just three points. The 24-year-old has been held under 200 passing yards in back-to-back games. New England has a bye in Week 10; Jones will look to build on Sunday's performance when the Patriots take on the New York Jets in Week 11.

  • Mac Jones An Option In Superflex Leagues

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones had a modest performance in last Sunday's start against the Jets. He completed 24 of 35 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Week 8 win. The 24-year-old will look to improve on last Sunday's performance when the Patriots take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9. Jones has a plus matchup against a Colts defense that ranks 16th in pass DVOA this season. The former first-round pick won't have top target DeVante Parker (knee) for Sunday's matchup, but Jones should be able to post solid totals against the Colts, making him mainly an option in superflex league formats.

  • Mac Jones Posts Modest Line In Win Over Jets

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 24-of-35 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Jets. He added 19 yards on seven rushing attempts. The 24-year-old threw a pick-six that was negated by a roughing the passer penalty in the first half that would have put the Patriots down 17-3. He turned things around in the second half and connected with Jakobi Meyers for a five-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Jones had another mediocre outing, but his performance will keep Bailey Zappe on the bench for now. The former first-round pick is mainly an option in Superflex leagues against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.

  • Mac Jones Will Start Against Jets

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones took around 90 percent of the first-team repetitions in practice on Wednesday and will start in Week 8 against the New York Jets, according to a source. Jones returned from a three-week absence due to a severe high-ankle sprain and didn't look good in the Monday night loss to the Chicago Bears before being benched after three series in favor of rookie Bailey Zappe. The 24-year-old Jones hasn't looked nearly as good in 2022 as he did in his rookie season, but the Patriots aren't giving up on the first-rounder just yet. Jones could improve as he puts his ankle injury in the rearview mirror, but a matchup against a stingy Jets defense isn't very attractive from a fantasy standpoint.

  • Patriots Not Ready To Commit To Starting QB For Week 8

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wasn't ready to name a starting quarterback for the Week 8 game against the New York Jets after the team's blowout loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday night in which starter Mac Jones was pulled after three series in favor of rookie Bailey Zappe. Jones' final play was an interception, but Belichick insisted he wasn't benched and would have returned in the second half if the game had been closer. Belichick said they intended for both Jones and Zappe to play on Monday and informed both players of the plan before the game, with Jones' recovery from a high-ankle sprain "a factor" in the decision. Zappe led back-to-back touchdown drives when he entered the game, but he also threw two interceptions in the second half. It seems likely that the Pats will go back to Jones this weekend, but we officially have a QB controversy in New England.

  • Mac Jones Benched, Struggles In Loss To Bears

    New England Patriots quarterback completed three of his six passes for 13 yards and an interception in Monday's 33-14 loss to the Chicago Bears. He added three rushes for 24 yards. The 24-year-old returned to action Monday after missing the last three games due to a high-ankle sprain. Jones was removed from Monday's game in favor of Bailey Zappe after throwing an interception during the second quarter. Zappe led New England to two scoring drives in the second quarter, but the offense stalled in the second half. There is quarterback controversy in New England, and it remains to be seen who will draw the start against the New York Jets in Week 8.

  • Bailey Zappe Replaces Mac Jones On Monday Night

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was replaced during the second quarter by rookie Bailey Zappe in his team's Monday night game against the Chicago Bears. Jones completed three of his six passes for 13 yards and one interception before getting benched in favor of Zappe following the pick early in the second quarter. Zappe came in and instantly got the offense moving, passing for 54 yards and a touchdown on his first offensive series in the second quarter. A quarterback controversy could be brewing in New England as Zappe has vastly outplayed Jones on the field in 2022.

  • Mac Jones Will Start Against Bears Monday Night

    The New England Patriots will start quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) against the Chicago Bears on Monday night, according to a source. It will be Jones' first action since suffering a severe high-ankle sprain four weeks ago. Rookie Bailey Zappe, who looked very good in place of the injured Jones, will serve as the backup to close out Week 7. Jones was listed as questionable on the final injury report, but he will be active and start against Chicago. Before his injury, the 24-year-old hadn't looked very good after an impressive rookie campaign in 2021. It will be interesting to see how Jones is moving around on his injured ankle, but the Patriots will likely lean heavily on their ground game as long as the game script allows it on Monday.

  • Mac Jones Expected To Start On Monday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) is expected to suit up for the upcoming Monday Night matchup with the Chicago Bears. The 24-year-old has missed each of the last three games due to a high ankle sprain. Luckily, it sounds like Jones will start, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Through three games, Jones has 786 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions. He'll be an upgrade over Bailey Zappe, but not by too much. Jones should be considered a low-end QB2 for this upcoming matchup against Chicago.

  • Mac Jones Trending Towards Playing Monday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) is trending towards playing against the Chicago Bears in Week 7, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The second-year signal-caller is listed as questionable after being limited in practice all week long. Jones hasn't played since Week 3. Through three contests this year, he posted 786 passing yards and an uninspiring 2:5 touchdown-to-interception ratio. However, a favorable matchup against the Bears' weak secondary gives Jones a chance to get things right in his first game back. Assuming Jones is indeed inactive, rookie Bailey Zappe, who has looked great through three contests, will revert to a backup role.

  • Mac Jones Questionable For Monday Night Football

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears. He had been limited in practice all week long. The second-year signal-caller amassed 786 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions through his first three games before going on to miss the next three contests. If he does play this week, he should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in a favorable matchup. If he is forced to sit out, Bailey Zappe would draw another start, ranking as a high-end QB3.

"It does feel pretty good. I'm going to get my treatment right now and be ready to go." The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Week 3 due to a high-ankle sprain. He will have one more chance to log a full practice for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears. If Jones cannot suit up, Bailey Zappe will draw his fourth consecutive start in Week 7.

  • Mac Jones Will Start When Healthy

    The New England Patriots don't have any quarterback controversy. Mac Jones (ankle) will be the starter when he's healthy enough to return from a severe left high-ankle sprain, according to league officials with knowledge of the situation. And it could come as early as Monday night against the Chicago Bears. Fourth-round rookie Bailey Zappe has played well and completed 72.9 percent of his passes for 596 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in three games with Jones sidelined. Jones didn't play very well in three games before getting hurt, but New England spent the offseason trying to build around him after a successful rookie year in 2021. But fantasy managers hoping to play Jones this week as a QB2 in superflex leagues will be in a tough situation with the game being on Monday night.

  • Mac Jones Expects To Be Ready For Monday's Game

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) expects to be available for the Week 7 game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, according to sources. Jones has been sidelined the last three games with a severe left high-ankle sprain, but he's told teammates his recovery has progressed, with his final hurdle to be cleared in practice. Head coach Bill Belichick continues to deflect questions on Jones' status. Rookie Bailey Zappe has gone 2-0 in his first two NFL starts and has gone 51-for-70 for 596 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in 11 quarters of play. Jones went 1-2 and went 64-for-97 for 786 yards, two TDs and five interceptions in his three games played. The Pats are fully expected to go back to Jones as their starter when they feel he's ready, but it remains to be seen if that will come on Monday.

  • Mac Jones Feeling 85-To-90 Percent Healthy

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) is reportedly back to feeling 85-to-90 percent as far as his health goes. The second-year quarterback is also reportedly willing to play through injury. At this point, it doesn't seem like the Patriots would bring back Jones unless he is 100 percent healthy. Rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe has performed admirably while taking over due to injuries. The 23-year-old is currently 2-0 as the Patriots' starter, and his success has even sparked some debate about who will continue as the starter moving forward. However, most would call this an overreaction as New England would most likely want to continue with their first-round investment, who impressed during his rookie year, over a fourth-round pick with a three-game sample size in the NFL. Jones is currently questionable for this week, but fantasy managers should expect him back by Week 8 or 9 based on Zappe's ability as a fill-in.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) is going to start when healthy, according to head coach Bill Belichick. He still wasn't ready to play in Week 6, which forced Bailey Zappe to make another start. The hope is that Jones will be ready in Week 7, but the team is taking it day-by-day right now. Jones wasn't exactly sharp when healthy, so the Patriots don't need to rush him back to the field. He'll barely be a streaming option, assuming he does suit up in Week 7. Fantasy managers will have to check back later in the week for another update.

In the meantime, Bailey Zappe will be under center in Week 6. He has thrown for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception this season.

As a result, Bailey Zappe will start in Week 6, with the backup tossing for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception this season while also completing 75% of his passes.

"Mac [Jones], I think, is making a good improvement," said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. We'll see where he is today. Certainly, he's doing a lot more this last Thursday than he did last Thursday. I'd imagine Friday will be the same thing, but we'll see." Fantasy managers should check back on Sunday an hour and a half before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff to ensure Jones is active. If Jones cannot suit up, Bailey Zappe would draw his second straight start against Cleveland.

He has been able to get in two limited practice sessions, but Friday's practice will be the biggest determining factor. Jones hasn't progressed to full practice yet, which makes it seem like Bailey Zappe will be in line for at least one more start.

Jones suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and has missed the last two games. The second-year signal-caller is making progress, but he should still be considered very questionable to play in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. Rookie Bailey Zappe got his first career NFL start in the Week 5 win over the Detroit Lions and went 17-for-21 for 188 yards, one touchdown and one interception. If he were to make another start, he'd once again be a desperation low-end QB2 for fantasy managers in superflex leagues. Veteran Brian Hoyer (concussion) is on Injured Reserve.

    New England Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe is expected to make his first career start against Detroit on Sunday. Mac Jones (ankle) is doubtful, and Brian Hoyer (concussion) is on injured reserve, so head coach Bill Belichick will turn to the 2022 fourth-round pick to handle things under center. The 23-year-old came in for relief when Hoyer went down in Week 4 against Green Bay and finished with 99 yards and a touchdown off 66.7% passing. Although the Lions defense has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, Zappe shouldn't be in any lineup in Week 5 unless managers have nowhere else to turn.

Backup Brian Hoyer (concussion) won't play, either. Instead, Bailey Zappe is in line to make his first official NFL start. The 23-year-old came in for relief after Hoyer went down in Week 4 versus Green Bay and finished the day with 99 yards and a touchdown off 10-for-15 passing. That said, Zappe has no business being in any fantasy lineup, so managers shouldn't look his way unless absolutely necessary.

Jones has been practicing with the team on a limited basis, but he's not ready to return as the starter under center and may not be ready next week, either. Veteran backup Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on Injured Reserve on Thursday, so Garrett Gilbert will likely be called up from the practice squad to serve as rookie Bailey Zappe's backup on Sunday against the Lions. Zappe acquitted himself nicely in his first NFL action last week, and he'll be on the streaming radar as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues this weekend against a porous Lions secondary.

He was dealing with a high-ankle sprain and was ultimately ruled out for Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. The 24-year-old has struggled this season, throwing for 786 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions while rushing for 37 yards and a score over three games in 2022. New England placed Brian Hoyer (head) on the injured reserve, leaving Bailey Zappe as the primary backup for Jones. Zappe will draw the start if Jones is unable to play.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. The second-year quarterback suffered a severe left high ankle sprain in the Patriots' 37-26 loss in Week 3 to the Baltimore Ravens and missed last week's matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Not only did the former first-round pick practice today, but Jones is pushing to play Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Initially, the franchise quarterback was expected to miss several weeks with the injury. However, the Patriots didn't place Jones on injured reserve. If the second-year quarterback can continue to practice this week, he has a chance to suit up on Sunday against the Lions.

Jones still has a limp and isn't getting up on his toes very much, although he's moving considerably better than he was at practice last Friday, when he didn't really move much at all. The second-year signal-caller suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and was inactive in last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Patriots probably won't rule the 24-year-old out until at least much later in the week, but it seems unlikely that he'll be able to go in Week 5 against the Detroit Lions. With veteran Brian Hoyer (head) dealing with a head injury, rookie third-stringer Bailey Zappe, who was efficient in relief last week, could make his first career start this Sunday.

Despite reports that Jones was holding out hope that he could play this weekend despite suffering a severe high-ankle sprain in the Week 3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, he did not practice all week and will not play on Sunday. There's a good chance he'll miss multiple games as well, meaning veteran Brian Hoyer is now in line to lead this offense, beginning in Week 4 against Green Bay. Jones will surely be trying to suit up in Week 5 against the Detroit Lions, but it remains to be seen if that will actually happen.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) was at practice on Friday despite suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 3. Jones didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, so it was a surprise to see him out there after his initial diagnosis seemed like a relatively serious injury. The sophomore is listed as questionable for the team's Week 4 matchup with the Packers, but Ian Rapoport reports that Brian Hoyer is likely to start for the Patriots. Whether it is Jones or Hoyer under center come Sunday, neither has much fantasy appeal in a tough matchup on the road.

Jones has told multiple teammates not to count him out of this weekend's game and is still operating as if he has a chance to play despite suffering a severe high-ankle sprain in the Week 3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The 24-year-old second-year QB has missed both practices this week, though, so it's highly unlikely he'll suit up, and the expectation is that he'll miss multiple games. Veteran backup Brian Hoyer is expected to start under center against the Packers, so fantasy managers should downgrade all of the Pats' offensive skill players in fantasy.

He's likely to miss multiple games. Jones and the Patriots are still discussing his options and the best plan moving forward. Fantasy managers in superflex QB leagues need to brace for a worst-case scenario moving forward. All of New England's offensive skill players will take a hit to their fantasy value as well with the 36-year-old veteran Brian Hoyer likely to take over as the starter under center, beginning with a Week 4 matchup against the Green Bay Packers, a team that just held Tom Brady and the Buccaneers to 12 points in Week 3.

    Tests have confirmed that New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) suffered a "pretty severe" high-ankle sprain in the Week 3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources. The hope is that Jones won't need surgery. His timetable is still to be determined, but it's hard to imagine he'll play in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. Fantasy managers running with the 24-year-old second-year signal-caller in two-QB leagues will need to find another option for at least the next couple of weeks and possibly longer. Jones threw for 321 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions on 32 attempts on Sunday in the loss to Baltimore. Thirty-six-year-old veteran Brian Hoyer is now in line to start against the Packers this Sunday, making Green Bay's defense/special teams unit extremely attractive as a fantasy streamer.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is believed to have sustained a high-ankle sprain in the team's Week 3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Although X-rays following Sunday's contest were negative, Jones is expected to miss some time and could potentially be placed on injured reserve. An MRI on Monday will confirm the extent of the injury. Although Jones was likely not a starting option in single-quarterback leagues, fantasy managers in superflex or two-QB formats should be planning to be without him for a few weeks.

Fortunately, X-rays were negative, although he isn't a lock to be ready for the Week 4 meeting with the Green Bay Packers.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has achieved modest results over two games in 2022. He has completed 42-for-65 pass attempts for 465 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in both contests. The 24-year-old faces a Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 3 that just allowed Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to throw 469 yards with six touchdowns in Week 2. The Ravens are allowing 463.5 total yards per game and have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Jones and New England's offense will look to find a rhythm against the Ravens. Despite the plus matchup, Jones is a borderline QB2 and is mainly an option in superflex league formats.

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back, illness) was removed from the injury report in Week 2 and is expected to start on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road. Jones dealt with back spasms after the Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins and also missed practice with an illness on Thursday, but he returned to a full practice on Friday and is good to go. The second-year signal-caller went 21-for-30 for 213 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the season opener. Although he won't be facing All-Pro pass-rusher T.J. Watt (pectoral) this weekend, the Steelers defense still has enough firepower to stop the Patriots offense dead in their tracks. The 24-year-old should be considered a low-end QB2 play in superflex leagues, at best.

Jones had an upset stomach, so they decided to give him the day off. The 24-year-old second-year signal-caller dealt with back spasms after the Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but he was able to practice in full on Wednesday. It's unlikely that his illness will keep him from playing in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but fantasy managers will want to monitor his status on Friday. With New England's offense looking suspect early on, Jones will be nothing more than a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he's active this Sunday.

  • Mac Jones Practices In Full Wednesday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice despite dealing with back spasms after the Week 1 season-opening loss to the Miami Dolphins. It's a good sign that he'll be available to start in Week 2 this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Barring a setback, the 24-year-old second-year signal-caller will be in play as a low-end QB2 for fantasy managers in superflex leagues. New England's offense has looked discombobulated all summer, and they managed to put up only seven points against Miami last weekend. Jones and Co. won't have to face All-Pro pass-rusher T.J. Watt (pectoral) this week, but fantasy managers shouldn't be expecting all that much from them as they look to gain consistency.

  • Mac Jones At Practice Wednesday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back) was present at practice on Wednesday. Jones dealt with back spasms after the Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but he brushed off the injury and reportedly plans to play in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It remains to be seen if the 24-year-old will be listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, but he appears to be on track to play this weekend. Jones and the offense couldn't move the ball with any consistency last week, although he was efficient, going 21-for-30 for 213 yards with a TD and interception. The Steelers defense won't have All-Pro pass-rusher T.J. Watt (pectoral) this week, but their defense is still good enough to give Jones and the Pats offense more trouble. Jones is a low-end QB2 play in fantasy.

  • Mac Jones Expected To Play In Week 2

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back) wants to be ready in time for their Week 2 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The early indication is that Jones will suit up next week. The 24-year-old is reportedly dealing with back spasms from a hit during the Week 1 matchup with the Miami Dolphins. It sounds like the team is being cautious with Jones, but this doesn't appear to be a significant injury. Patriots fans are hopeful that Jones plays, but fantasy managers can avoid him as a streaming option against a tough Steelers defense.

  • Mac Jones Could Play In Week 2

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was banged up against the Miami Dolphins, but he was reportedly just suffering from back spasms. This is good news considering it is a minor and treatable situation, and he could be back on the field in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he shouldn't be started in single-QB leagues, as his upside is low against a strong Steelers defense who harassed Joe Burrow all game long Sunday. Jones could be a solid streamer when the time comes in favorable matchups, but he belongs on the bench or waiver wire for now.

  • X-rays Negative On Mac Jones

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back) was injured during the loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Fortunately, X-rays were negative, although he'll undergo further testing once the team returns to Foxborough. The Pats will next head to Pittsburgh for Week 2. But if Jones can't play, Brian Hoyer is the favorite to replace him. However, he isn't someone fantasy managers can depend on to fill the void.

  • Mac Jones Suffers Back Injury In Week 1

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones (back) was injured during the season-opening loss to Miami on Sunday. Jones finished Week 1 by throwing for 213 yards and one touchdown (one pick) off 21-for-30 passing. However, more importantly, the team didn't make the signal-caller available to reporters post-game, citing a back issue. Nonetheless, there should be news surrounding his health well before the trip to Pittsburgh for Week 2. But if Jones can't go, veteran Brian Hoyer is the favorite to take over under center.

  • Matt Patricia Calling Patriots' Offensive Plays

    The matter of New England’s offensive play caller has been a storyline throughout the offseason, as the team faced the necessary task of replacing Josh McDaniels. Today’s season opener represented a final window into the team’s regular season plans to handle the role.  As noted by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Matt Patricia is the coach tasked with […]

  • Mac Jones Week 1 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was sharp in the preseason finale, completing 9-of-13 passes for 71 yards with no touchdowns and one interception against the Raiders. New England's offense will look vastly different this season, with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels leaving the Patriots to coach the Las Vegas Raiders. Joe Judge and Matt Patricia replaced McDaniels. The offense struggled throughout most of the preseason, and this could continue into Week 1 against the Dolphins. Miami's defense was tough against the pass in 2021 and finished ninth overall in pass DVOA. The Dolphins' defense will be strong again in 2022, making Jones mainly an option in superflex/Two-QB leagues for Week 1.

  • Mac Jones, Patriots Offense Could Struggle

    The New England Patriots offense looked out of sorts for most of training camp this summer. They had issues with basic plays, and their offensive line struggled to block. It's not a huge surprise after former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels left the team to coach the Las Vegas Raiders. We should never question head coach Bill Belichick's decisions at this point, but the move to replace McDaniels with Joe Judge and Matt Patricia is a major downgrade. The Patriots offense could make tweaks heading into the Week 1 opener against the Miami Dolphins, or they could be forced to abandon the scheme altogether early in the season. It's not great news for quarterback Mac Jones and the rest of the offense heading into the 2022 regular season. Against a much-improved Dolphins defense this Sunday, Jones should only be used in superflex leagues as a low-end QB2.
