Week 10 Opposing QB: An analysis of Mac Jones

FANTASY FOOTBALL Week 10 Opposing QBs: A Mac Jones Analysis For those unfamiliar with this, I will post key QB stats each week to evaluate the performance of The opposing QB is next.
Yes, O-Line, Receivers, and Play Calls impact these numbers, but they are primarily QB metrics.
I will probably modify the netting throughout the season.
Comments will be brief but please let me know in the comments that statistics aren’t everything.
(click chart to enlarge) Mac Jones is in his third season as New England’s starter.
So how is he?
He’s faced easier than average pass defenses this year (20th opd).
The Patriots lead a pass-oriented offense and have below-average success on the ground (11th ed.
, 18th volume).
Jones doesn’t get a lot of pressure, but that number is almost 100% because he gets rid of the ball very quickly (28 pr%, 30 ttt) instead of relying on an O line that ranks last in Pass Block Win Rate.
These quick passes result in short target depth (23rd adot).
His accuracy is poor and so these short attempts result in even shorter completions (31st cpoe, 29th ay/c) Short passes often achieve good YAC .
So even though the Pats receivers managed above-average YAC, when adjusted for target depth, they actually picked up less than expected (14th yac, 18th yacoe), and that hurt their performance.
His yardage rating is low (28th ypa).
When he loses the ball and the pressure doesn’t get to him, his drop rate is very low (30th aa%).
This puts his yards per punt closer to the QB average, but it’s still very low (28th ny/d).
With such short yardage, it’s no surprise he didn’t have a touchdown or first down (25% 1, 22 TD%), but that certainly doesn’t explain the turnover rate.
his high transfer (9th to %).
If you’re not doing well in yardage stats and you’re not doing well in non-yardage stats, then you’re not going to do well in the EPA stats (28th EPA/d, 23rd psr).
New England is one of the worst passing teams this year and that’s not very different from the previous 2 years.
So, I think it’s safe to call it: Jones isn’t a very good starting QB.
