Bill Belichick is certainly not adverse to risks, and has named Mac Jones his starter. Jones is coming off a tremendous year at Alabama, where he showed himself to be patient, efficient and a good caretaker of the ball in 2020. If there is one major flaw with Jones, it is that he doesn't fit the mold of what the NFL is looking for in young quarterbacks as he is not very mobile or terribly athletic. Of course, the Patriots and Belichick often Zig when the league Zags, so that doesn't mean they won't be happy with Jones or they can't make him successful. However if Jones washes out, and this was a Belichick pick - aspects of Jones' game echoes Jimmy Garoppolo who hasn't lit the league on fire and also was a Belichick guy - you could see it end Bill Belichick's time in New England. It will be a shaky year with him and Jones is unlikely to be a consistent starter for fantasy.
