Chris Jones
24-Year-Old Defensive EndDE
2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Emerges as force in 2018
DEKansas City Chiefs
January 9, 2019
Jones closed out 2018 with 40 tackles (35 solo), 15.5 sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and his first career touchdown in 2018.
Jones was a solid player in his first two seasons with the Chiefs, but he really proved himself worthy of the second-round selection in 2016 during his third year in the league. Although his streak of 11 straight games with a sack ended in Week 17 against the Raiders, Jones has become a name for which opposing teams need to scheme. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Kansas City will almost assuredly make an attempt to lock him into a longer deal this offseason.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
