Week 3 Outlook
Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones completed 22-of-30 passes for 186 yards in the Patriots' win against the Jets.
Jones did cough up the ball midway through the second quarter, although New England was able to recover it. It was the battle of two rookie QBs, where Zach Wilson had a brutal day throwing four interceptions and taking four sacks. That gave Jones and the Patriots plenty of breathing room. While he has yet to register an explosive performance, he has been a serviceable thrower through the initial two games of the season. Jones should remain a low-end QB2 against New Orleans for Week 3.
Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones completed 28-of-39 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown in Sunday afternoon's loss to the Dolphins.
Despite the disappointing loss, this was a strong professional debut against a stingy defense for rookie QB Mac Jones. The one lowlight occurred on the fifth play of the first drive of the game, where Jones nearly coughed up a fumble after trying to evade a sack. He'll face a rebuilding Jets team next week, which should serve as an easier matchup. While his pass-catchers could be better, Jones now finds himself on the QB2 map.
With Cam Newton's release, the door is wide open for Mac Jones to assume the mantle of starting quarterback in New England.
Jones is set to become the starting quarterback in New England. He has looked excellent throughout the preseason and clearly showed his coaches enough to feel comfortable with him as the starter. New England revamped their pass-catchers this offseason by adding Nelson Agholor, Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry. These additions should give the former Alabama quarterback a much better group of skilled players than what Newton had to work with last season. Unfortunately, the rookie signal-caller offers little to no rushing value, which caps his fantasy value. However, in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, Jones looks like a competent starter.
Patriots QB Mac Jones was 10-for-14 for 156 yards and a touchdown in Week 3’s preseason game against the Giants.
Jones looks like the real deal. He stood his ground in the pocket and led the Patriots on two scoring drives on Sunday night. There’s a good chance this young man won himself the opportunity to be the day one starter for New England. Although he may not hold much value in redraft leagues right now, don’t be surprised if Jones sneaks into the top 20 QB rankings and is viable in super-flex leagues or an above-average bye week fill-in.
New England Patriots QB Mac Jones completed 13 of 19 passes for 146 yards in Thursday's game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jones once again showed that he understands what OC Josh McDaniels expects of him with another strong game. For the second week in a row, he nailed a deep throw on the money, which was dropped, this time by WR N'Keal Harry dropped. Jones most impressive throw was on 3rd on 13, where he threw a strike to Harry from his endzone to get the first down. The Patriots QB competition is an interesting one. Both Jones and QB Cam Newton performed well Thursday.
