MATT HARMON: We learned a lot about the Patriots offense in week one. One of the things that we definitely learned is that Mac Jones is pretty good. He got the ball out quick, under seven area yards per pass attempt, completed a high percentage of his passes. In fact, Mac Jones completed the highest percentage of his passes for any rookie that's thrown the ball more than 30 times in their debut. That's good news. And it's good news for pass catchers like Jonnu Smith who ran a route on 79% of the passing plays in week one for New England.

Now he still is obviously sharing those duties with Hunter Henry. Jonnu Smith had 51 snaps, 52 for Hunter Henry, so he blocked a little bit of a decent amount to Jonnu Smith, but he's a good overall blocker. We can expect that. It's not the juiciest receiving role overall for Jonnu Smith, but he's still a very good player, playing for an offense that we have to be pretty optimistic about given the way Mac Jones played against a pretty tough Dolphins defense in week one.

I think overall we're kind of looking at Jonnu Smith as like a touchdown or bust streamer. Not an every week start because Hunter Henry is still there, Jakobi Meyers, and Nelson Agholor are entrenched as the one and two receiver. And this does look like a week though to be chancing any of those Patriots. Nelson Agholor like I mentioned, Hunter Henry, Jakobi Meyers, Jonnu Smith, get these guys in there because that Jets defense looks like kind of a mess against their former quarterback Sam Darnold. So, I would be pretty optimistic about all of your Patriots this week, Jonnu Smith included. I'm fearlessly forecasting three catches, 48 yards, and a touchdown.
