2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jones' box scores feature the low-tackle, high-sack totals you'd expect of a 255-pound edge-rushing specialist rather than the 6-6, 310-pound mountain he is. But weird box score or not, Jones is clearly one of the league's top defenders after posting 15.5 sacks last year in his third season. The per-snap sack rate almost has to regress, but he could offset that a bit with more playing time, which he certainly earned after a modest 776 snaps in 2018. Jones can't be counted on for tackles, though, as last year's mark of 40 was in line with his per-snap rates from the prior two years. Read Past Outlooks

Can't go versus Broncos
DTKansas City Chiefs
October 16, 2019
Jones (groin) is ruled out for Thursday's tilt against the Broncos.
Jones' absence doesn't come as much of a surprise, considering that he's expected to miss multiple contests due to a groin injury sustained Week 5. The Broncos' offense stands to benefit from Jones' lack of availability, given that neither Khalen Saunders nor Terrell McClain posses similar abilities to create interior pressure.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Jones broke out in his second season with the Chiefs, amassing 6.5 sacks and 32 tackles (22 solo) while intercepting a pass and forcing four fumbles in 2017. A slightly slimmer version of Jones is expected to serve as the team's starting left end again in 2018.
Jones was selected 37th overall in 2016 and quickly earned his spot on the field. While he didn't start Week 1, the defensive lineman out of Mississippi State moved into the starting lineup following Allen Bailey's calf injury in Week 6 and started the final 11 games of the campaign. Jones turned the opportunity into 28 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks, and the offseason departures of Dontari Poe and Jaye Howard should clear a path to consistent snaps again in 2017.
The Chiefs top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft (second round, sixth overall), Jones may be destined for a substitution role this season due to the team’s depth on the defensive line. With Dontari Poe in the final year of his contract, Jones will likely be groomed to take over Poe’s spot at nose tackle in 2017.
