2024 RTSports Outlook

Jones did not take a step forward last season and was eventually benched because of his poor play. He had just two games all season with 20-plus fantasy points. His only 300-yard game of the season came in Week 1. Jones had more interceptions (12) than touchdowns (10) for the season. Jones heads to the Jaguars this season to take over as the top backup, playing behind Trevor Lawrence. Jones had 46 touchdown passes to 36 interceptions for his career. Jones is an accurate quarterback that gets rid of the ball quickly. He lacks a little athleticism, though, but can make some plays out of the pocket. He isn't a statue by any means. He will force some passes and can make poor decisions when pressured. Jones has not progressed as expected. 

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Jones moves to a backup role, giving him next to no fantasy value.

Player Notes
May 3 2:30pm ET

Unsurprisingly, the Jacksonville Jaguars didn't pick up the fifth-year option on new quarterback Mac Jones, who the team acquired in a trade with the New England Patriots this offseason. Jones was New England's first-round pick in 2021 but failed to make an impact as their starter under center. He went to the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2021 but was merely a replacement player. Jones started all 42 games that he played for the Patriots, but the team went 4-13 in 2023 and Jones found himself on the bench for the final six games. The 25-year-old from Alabama regressed in each of his three seasons in Boston, but it didn't help that the Patriots were constantly bringing in new offensive coaches during his time there. Now in Jacksonville, Jones will operate as the clear backup to Trevor Lawrence in 2024.

The New England Patriots are listening and taking calls from teams looking to move up to the No. 3 overall pick in the first round of Thursday's NFL draft. General manager Eliot Wolf is running point on the team's draft, but sources are saying president Jonathan Kraft is heavily involved in the decision-making process. Most people think the Patriots will ultimately stay at No. 3 and take a quarterback of the future after moving on from Mac Jones this offseason. Teams like the Minnesota Vikings, Las Vegas Raiders, New York Giants and Denver Broncos would be the most likely to trade up to No. 3 to take a QB. If the Patriots stay put and select third overall, whatever rookie signal-caller they take would be competing with veteran Jacoby Brissett for the starting gig under center this fall.

Dynasty | The New England Patriots are trading quarterback Mac Jones to Jacksonville. Dynasty Analysis: The Patriots moving on from Jones was seemingly inevitable and now it becomes official, This is a classic trade where it's better in NFL terms than it is in fantasy. Jones will compete with CJ Beathard to back up Trevor Lawrence but it's going to take another Lawrence injury for Jones to have any chance at seeing the field. The compensation was reportedly only a sixth round pick so it's not even out of the question Beathard beats him out for a roster spot this Fall. Regardless, the demise of Jones' dynasty value is now complete and he's a tough hold on a dynasty roster.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly acquired quarterback Mac Jones from the New England Patriots. This move was expected as Jones was reportedly on the trade block heading into the offseason. The Pats are looking to go in a new direction with Jerod Mayo taking over as the head coach in New England. Jones struggled during his time in New England and was even benched for Bailey Zappe this past season. In exchange for Jones, the Pats will reportedly receive a sixth-round draft pick. The hope is that a change of scenery will help Jones get his career back on track. This move doesn't hold much fantasy value considering Trevor Lawrence will remain the starter in Jacksonville. However, the Jags are hopeful to turn Jones into a quality backup.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Pats have fielded calls for quarterback Mac Jones. The 2021 No. 15 overall pick showed promise in his inaugural season, tossing for 3,801 yards and 22 touchdowns (13 interceptions) off 67.6% passing. However, his production has plummeted since then. As a result, he wasn't starting consistently throughout the 2023-24 campaign, so his stock to end the season couldn't have gotten much lower. In all fairness, Jones can't take all the blame for his troubles under center. Yet, even with a new coaching staff, the 25-year-old could benefit from a fresh start with a new team. With that in mind, Jones has a long road ahead before becoming relevant for fantasy managers. But he's someone to watch over the next few months, especially if he gets paired with a coach who can help him develop.

Even though Bill Belichick is gone, New England Patriots former first-round quarterback Mac Jones, who lost the starting role and ended up the third-stringer by the end of 2023, is a trade candidate in the coming weeks and will most likely end up somewhere else in 2024. The Patriots own the No. 3 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, and all indications are that they will seriously explore taking of the draft's top QBs as they move into the Jerod Mayo era in New England. If USC's Caleb Williams and North Carolina's Drake Maye go first and second in the draft, the Patriots could take a third QB or trade back with another team if they don't like who slides to them. Jones threw for 22 touchdowns as a rookie in 2021 but has regressed tremendously the last two years, which was one of the big reasons the team moved on from Belichick after 24 years and six Super Bowl rings.

The New England Patriots hired former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt as their new offensive coordinator on Thursday, according to sources. The former NFL quarterback and long-time respective assistant spent the last four seasons as the Browns' offensive coordinator but will now head to New England to run the team's offense in head coach Jerod Mayo's first year taking over for the legend Bill Belichick. The hire signals that the Patriots may be moving to more of a West Coast-based offensive system in 2024. Van Pelt didn't call plays while with the Browns, but the 2024 campaign will be his 29th season in the NFL and his 20th as an assistant head coach. Cleveland's running game ranked in the top 10 in three of his four years as coordinator. He has spent the majority of his career working with QBs, so perhaps the Patriots will be hoping he can salvage Mac Jones.

The New England Patriots promoting linebackers coach Jerod Mayo to head coach to replace Bill Belichick gives the Kraft family the opposite of a power coach. As a result, reports suggest the Patriots are in no rush to hire a general manager and could wait until after the draft to amplify the impression. "The owner has been held back for 20 years. He is going to be involved. His son is going to want to be involved. It will be interesting if they tell the coach it was Bill's fault with Mac Jones and he can play and we gotta get him right," a veteran coach said. The Patriots hold the third pick in the upcoming draft and could select a quarterback then. Matt Groh and Eliot Wolf will continue to run the operation in the front office for New England and they'll likely interview additional candidates for leadership positions, but there's no guarantee anyone at the moment will be named GM.
