With the slow-moving nature of this Patriots' offense and heavy instance on rushing, Jones is a low-end QB2 this week. Jones has only finished as a top 12 fantasy quarterback in 31.6% of his NFL starts. Small sample variance: Baltimore's pass defense looks like a pushover on paper after Tua Tagovailoa and his talented receivers dismantled them in Week 2. In Week 1, the Ravens' pass defense allowed the ninth-lowest EPA per dropback and 11th-lowest success rate per dropback. Depending on the health of their cornerback unit entering the weekend, I could be revising my stance here. We'll see.

Mac Jones leads Patriots to win over Steelers

Mac Jones completed 21 of 35 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown, and one interception during the Patriots' Week 2 win over the Steelers. He was not sacked in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

This was a relatively mediocre performance from Jones, who will continue to rank in the mid-to-low QB2 tier going forward. Given his tendency to stay in the pocket and the Patriots' willingness to put the football in the hands of their running backs, Jones doesn't have much fantasy appeal in single-quarterback leagues.
