LB - ARI - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Cardinals' LB Chandler Jones is undergoing biceps surgery and has been declared done for the season by HC Kliff Kingsbury.
Jones accounted for 10 tackles and one sack through the first five games of the 2020 season before suffering a torn bicep in a 30-10 win over the New York Jets this past Sunday. The Cardinals' defense is allowing a steep 400.8 yards per game average to opposing teams and the loss of a veteran like Jones will keep the Arizona offense pass-centric as they will look to air it out while playing from behind.
Cardinals LB Chandler Jones (biceps) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 5.
Jones left for the locker room in the second quarter and was quickly ruled out. He'll likely undergo testing. The Cardinals should update his status later tonight or early Monday morning.
Chandler Jones finished Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Seahawks with six tackles (four solo), four sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Jones has been a mad man this season totaling 19 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and 51 tackles through Week 16. He is an LB1 in most IDP leagues moving into the 2020 season.
Chandler Jones racked up five solo tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble during Sunday’s 23-17 loss to the Steelers.
Jones leads all Cardinals in sacks with 14 through Week 14. He also has 40 tackles and six forced fumbles. He is worth starting in most leagues and will continue to add to his sack stats in the fantasy playoffs.
Chandler Jones finished Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers with five total tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
Jones is tied for the NFL sack leader with Tampa Bay’s Shaquil Barrett with 11.5 sacks through Week 10. Clearly, Jones has an excellent chance to get more sacks each week and should be started with confidence.
