Chris Jones Unlikely To Get Extension?

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo believes that Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones deserves a long-term contract extension, but with the team not making an offer at $20 million per season or more, it could be unlikely that he agrees to a deal before the July 15 deadline. Under the franchise tag in 2020, Jones would make around $16 million. The Chiefs apparently don't think he's worth that amount, so there's a lot of work to be done if the two sides don't iron some things out. There's also the situation of extending Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes, so Jones is on the backburner. Jones also threatened a potential holdout on his Twitter account. Most likely, the 25-year-old will play under the tag this year, where he'll be a low-end starting defensive lineman for IDP owners.

Not Much Traction Between Chiefs, Chris Jones

There hasn't been much traction on long-term contract talks between the Kansas City Chiefs and defensive tackle Chris Jones, according to a source. The Chiefs want Jones back long-term, but the coronavirus pandemic has played a big part with teams not know what the salary cap will be next year. Clarity from the league before the July 15 deadline to sign franchise-tagged players would help both sides. The 6-foot-6, 310-pounder has 24.5 sacks for KC in the last two seasons, becoming a dominant defensive tackle for the Chiefs and fantasy owners in IDP formats. He could be looking at around $20 million per season on a new deal. Jones should be considered a weekly starter in IDP formats, with or without a long-term deal.

Patrick Mahomes, Receivers Holding Workouts

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and other players on the offensive end, including tight end Travis Kelce, have been holding workouts despite the unavailability of team facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite suffering a knee injury during the Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos last season, the former MVP still finished the regular season with 4,031 yards and 26 touchdowns (five interceptions) throughout 14 games. With Mahomes and company putting in work while others aren't able to, he has a good chance to reclaim the top spot as the best fantasy signal-caller in 2020.

Chiefs Ranked As No. 5 Trench Team

The Kansas City Chiefs come in at No. 5 on the list of the best trench teams in the league, per NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. Mitchell Schwartz could be the best right tackle in football, and Eric Fisher is a stout blind-side protector for Patrick Mahomes. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is an underrated blocker with a tenacious demeanor and playing style. On the defensive side, Chris Johns and Frank Clark are alpha dogs with disruptive games and high motors. If the duo can stay healthy this season, Kansas City's defense could emerge as a top-10 unit in 2020. The Chiefs also have some playmakers in the second and third levels of the defense, which will put them on the radar as a low-end starting unit in fantasy football circles.

Travis Kelce And Team Conducting Workouts

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been working with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, among others, despite team facilities being unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even without the extra work, the veteran was still positioned to be one of the first tight ends off fantasy boards for the 2020 campaign. Kelce finished 2019 with 97 catches for 1,229 yards. While he did take a step back in touchdown receptions (five), he still ended the year as the top fantasy tight end. Barring injury, he has an excellent chance to do it again this upcoming season.
