  • Mac Jones Expects To Play Friday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones told reporters that he expects to play on Friday in the team's second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. Jones was held out of the preseason opener last week. Offensive coaches Matt Patricia and Joe Judge split the play-calling duties last week, but the question remains: Who will call plays for Jones? Patricia is the favorite since he's done it for most of training camp, but head coach Bill Belichick has also called plays to Jones in full-team drills. The Patriots offense hasn't looked good for much of camp, but Jones has been much better in joint practices against Carolina this week. The 23-year-old held his own as a rookie, but with former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels gone, Jones could struggle in Year 2. He's a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Mac Jones Not Expected To Play Thursday

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones and the rest of the first-team offense are not expected to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the New York Giants, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN. Brian Hoyer and rookie Bailey Zappe will get some playing time with Jones not suiting up, so the two will need to battle to earn the backup job behind the former Alabama collegiate star. Zappe has been impressive during his first training camp with the team and has a good opportunity to show what he can do in a game situation. The fourth-round pick out of Western Kentucky is likely the best option for any preseason DFS tournaments

  • Mac Jones, Patriots Offense Struggling In Camp

    New England Patriots second-year quarterback Mac Jones and the offense continue to struggle in training camp this summer. The defense has far outplayed the offense so far in camp, and The Athletic's Chad Graff thinks it's fair to be worried about the offense heading into the 2022 season. ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss thinks it wouldn't be a surprise if Jones doesn't play in the preseason opener on Thursday night against the New York Giants based on practices this week. The Patriots are replacing offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who held the position for the last decade. It's still early, but neither the running game nor the passing game has gotten going. It's not great news for the fantasy stock of anyone in this offense, including Jones, who should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in 2022.

  • Matt Patricia Calls Plays On Wednesday

    New England Patriots offensive coach Matt Patricia called the plays for the team's offense at training camp practice on Wednesday. Players pointed out that Patricia brings all his defensive knowledge to the table and let's them see, as offensive tackle Trent Brown said, "the who, what, when, where and why" of how a defense thinks and wants to play. New England didn't officially name an offensive coordinator, but the expectation was that Patricia would be the man calling plays in 2022. Second-year quarterback Mac Jones is showing signs of maturity already, but the move from Josh McDaniels to Patricia at offensive coordinator is seen as a downgrade for the young signal-caller.

  • Patriots See "Dramatic" Improvement From Mac Jones

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has seen "dramatic" improvements heading into his sophomore season, according to head coach Bill Belichick. Jones has focused on his diet and body, as his "offseason work has been significant," said Belichick. The former Alabama collegiate star will be supported by a pass-catching group that consists of wide receivers DeVante Parker, Jakobi Meyers, and Kendrick Bourne, as well as tight ends Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Jones doesn't have the rushing upside of some of the other second-year quarterbacks, but he still figures to find himself as a solid QB2 option for fantasy managers with a chance at QB1 production. The 23-year-old is worth a pick near the end of fantasy drafts in conventional formats.

  • Patriots Not Naming Offensive, Defensive Coordinators

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick isn't naming an official offensive coordinator to replace Josh McDaniels, who is now the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Patriots also won't list an official defensive coordinator. "I'm not big on titles," Belichick said in March. "We have jobs to do. We'll do the jobs." Senior football adviser/offensive line coach Matt Patricia, offensive assistant/quarterbacks coach Joe Judge and Belichick are viewed as the most likely possibilities to call plays for second-year QB Mac Jones. It remains an interesting storyline with training camp kicking off next Wednesday, and there's a chance that Jones get input from all three on game days.

  • Isaiah Wynn Moved To Right Tackle This Offseason

    The New England Patriots have been experimenting with offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn this offseason by moving him from left to right tackle. He was at right tackle for the entirety of mandatory minicamp, which is a pretty big surprise considering he hasn't taken snaps at the position since his rookie season, and he didn't play there in college either. Trent Brown has taken over on quarterback Mac Jones' blind side. All signs are pointing to this move becoming official in training camp at the end of July. The 26-year-old was the 23rd overall selection in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft by the Patriots out of Georgia. He played just 18 games in his first two years in the league before playing 16 games (15 starts) in 2021.

  • Mac Jones Credits Lifestyle Changes For Improvement

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones credits his worth ethic and diet for his solid offseason. "I made significant strides," the sophomore said. "Fixing my body, feeling comfortable, feeling healthier and better. At the end of the day, you're still human, and you want to eat what you want to eat, but you have to be disciplined." Considering the 23-year-old had a spectacular rookie campaign, one where he threw 3,801 yards, 22 touchdowns (13 picks), and completed 67.6% of his passes, the Alabama alum could be a sneaky option for the managers choosing to wait until the later rounds of fantasy drafts before taking a signal-caller.

  • Patriots Sign First-Rounder Cole Strange

    The New England Patriots agreed to terms on a four-year rookie deal with first-round offensive lineman Cole Strange on Wednesday, according to a source. Even though he was the 29th overall pick at the end of the first round, Strange was still a bit of a surprise at that stage out of small-school Tennessee-Chattanooga. The 23-year-old is athletic and toolsy, though, and he could see starts at left guard in his rookie season. The Patriots are hoping that the 6-foot-5, 307-pounder will help in both the running game and for second-year quarterback Mac Jones' protection.

  • Mac Jones Could Improve His Deep Ball

    New England Patriots second-year quarterback Mac Jones could make significant improvement in the deep passing game this year. Jones delivered three downfield, tight-window throws in the final practice of mandatory minicamp that couldn't have been placed any better. Forty-one percent of Jones' pass attempts that were thrown at least 20 yards downfield last year were over- or underthrown, and he ranked 24th with a 38.8% completion rate on vertical routes in 2021, according to Next Gen Stats. His receivers didn't get much separation deep down the field to help him out, but Jones felt "good strides" were made in spring practices. The 23-year-old will have more help with the addition of wideout DeVante Parker, but he'll still be more of a mediocre QB2 option in this offense.

  • Matt Patricia To Be Patriots Offensive Play-Caller?

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hasn't decided who will call the offensive plays this season, but it's trending in Matt Patricia's direction, according to a source. Patricia and Joe Judge are both preparing for the possibility that they'll call plays, but Patricia's workload this spring has suggested he's the early favorite for the offensive coordinator duties. With former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels gone, the Patriots aren't running a complete new offensive system, but rather simplifying their terminology. This should help some of the younger players, but a move from McDaniels to either Patricia or Judge could be a massive downgrade for second-year quarterback Mac Jones and the rest of the offense in 2022.

  • Isaiah Wynn Present For Mandatory Minicamp

    New England Patriots left tackle Isaiah Wynn, who didn't take part in the team's voluntary organized team activities, is at the team's facilities on Monday and will be present for mandatory minicamp this week. Wynn will be playing the 2022 season on his fifth-year option that will pay him $10.4 million. The former first-round pick started a career-high 15 games last year but struggled in pass protection, allowing 28 QB pressures and six sacks. He's expected to open the season as quarterback Mac Jones' blind-side protector, but Wynn will need to be better in his third NFL season.

  • Mac Jones Showing More Leadership

    New England Patriots second-year quarterback Mac Jones' increased leadership has caught his teammates' attention during offseason workouts. "It's just at another level now," receiver Kendrick Bourne said. "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 is on track to become a team captain in just his second NFL season. He has impressed teammates and coaches this offseason, but many folks are wondering if he'll take a step back without offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in 2022. Jones has a new weapon in receiver DeVante Parker, but the Patriots should remain a run-first, ball-control team, leaving Jones as a mediocre QB2 option in fantasy.

  • Mac Jones In Great Shape At OTAs

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has been at OTAs in noticeably better shape, crediting his diet. "I think every year you want to do a self-diagnosis of how you felt for the games, your body fat, all that stuff," Jones said. "For me, cleaning up my diet -- I've probably learned more this offseason than I ever have about my diet, sleep, nutrition, wellness, all that stuff. I've taken what I've learned that I feel will help me and applied it." Jones is having his first offseason as the undisputed QB1 for New England after last year's uncertainty as a rookie competing with former Patriots quarterback Cam Newton. He seems to be putting in the work, also working with throwing coach Tom House, who worked extensively with Tom Brady over the years. The offense is still centered around the run game, and there are questions with the departure of long-time offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. However, the 23-year-old Jones is in a great position to improve on his rookie stat line of 3,801 passing yards with 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

  • Patriots Offense In Trouble?

    New England Patriots players are "alarmed" so far with what they've seen from the team's offensive coaching staff. "There is a high-level of concern about what is going on with the Patriots," Boston Sports Journal's Greg A. Bedard said. It's something to watch, but we shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet with head coach Bill Belichick's coaching staff. The Patriots never officially named a new offensive coordinator after Josh McDaniels left for the head-coaching job with the Las Vegas Raiders. This is a storyline to watch closely as we approach training camp this summer. Second-year quarterback Mac Jones figures to be affected the most by the team's offensive changes heading into the 2022 campaign.
