Mac Jones being traded to Jaguars

The Patriots are finalizing a deal to send QB Mac Jones to the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The deal is expected to be for a late-round draft pick.

Fantasy Impact

Jones had a disappointing season in 2023, throwing 10 touchdowns against 12 interceptions in 11 games. The Patriots moved on from HOF HC Bill Belichick this offseason, and they currently hold the No. 3 overall pick in what is expected to be a talented QB class. In Jacksonville, Jones will back up starting QB Trevor Lawrence. There is virtually no chance the Jaguars will pick up Jones's fifth-year option for 2025, so he will likely be a free agent after this upcoming season unless he agrees to an extension in Jacksonville.

Mac Jones drawing trade interest

According to Ian Rapoport, teams have been calling them and doing work on Mac Jones.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots previously stated they were willing to trade Jones. The former first-round pick excelled in his rookie season, but has since seen his career take a downward spiral. It is possible a change of scenery could be good for both sides. This will remain a situation to monitor.

Mac Jones 'a likely trade candidate' for Patriots

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones is considered a "likely trade candidate" by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, with there being a "good chance" he ends up elsewhere in 2024.

Fantasy Impact

After getting demoted from starter to third-stringer, Jones' relationship with the Patriots has likely been strained to the point of no return. The former first-round pick experienced the worst year of his young, three-season pro career, throwing for 2,120 yards with 10 TDs and 12 INTs. He ranked 28th in EPA/play, but there's a chance a QB-desperate team outside of the 2024 NFL Draft's ideal QB range could take a chance.

Mac Jones does not take any reps in media portion of practice Wednesday

Mac Jones reportedly did not take any reps at quarterback during the media portion of practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was most recently benched for Bailey Zappe last Sunday in the second half against the Giants after throwing two interceptions in the first half. It was Zappe seeing the majority of the reps on Wednesday, followed by Malik Cunningham which could mean Zappe is starting on Sunday against the Chargers.

Mac Jones struggles, benched in Week 12 loss

Mac Jones completed 12-of-21 passes for 89 yards and two interceptions in the Patriots’ 10-7 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Jones split first-team reps with QB Bailey Zappe during the week and saw himself benched to start the second half of Sunday’s game. The Patriots are likely going to keep who their starting quarterback is quiet again, but fantasy managers should not trust Jones moving forward.
