  • New England leads the NFL in point differential (+123).
  • New England has forced 4.5 sacks plus turnovers per game, the most in the league.
  • Tennessee is surrendering 4.4 sacks plus turnovers per game, 29th in the league.
  • The Patriots now lead the league in percentage of scoring drives (50.5%) although they are still 15th in percentage of drives producing a touchdown (26.6%).
  • New England has allowed opponents to score on a league-low 28.6% of their possessions.
  • The Titans are producing a gain of 20 or more yards once every 25.6 offensive plays, last in the NFL.

Trust = spike production for that player


Mac Jones: Jones has completed 41-of-49 passes the past two weeks for 8.3 yards per pass attempt against the Browns and Falcons. Although hyper-efficient once again in Week 11, Jones managed just 10.4 fantasy points because he threw one touchdown pass on his 26 attempts. 

Jones has now thrown the ball 26 or fewer times in three straight games. He has two QB1 scoring weeks on the season, his only weeks in the front half of weekly scoring on the season. 

The Titans are 21st in passing points allowed per game (15.7), but they have climbed up to 12th in the league in points allowed per attempt (0.41), 10th in yards allowed per attempt (7.0 Y/A), and sixth in completion rate allowed (62.5%) to opposing passers. 

Jones has shown he can be a high completion rate quarterback, but the volume, touchdowns, and rushing production have all been fleeting. As a significant home favorite, volume should be limited again, leaving Jones as a floor-based QB2.
