The San Francisco 49ers hold the No. 3 pick after a trade with the Miami Dolphins and had previously been connected to Jones, the quarterback who led the Alabama Crimson Tide to the 2020 national championship.
But DraftKings Sportsbook pulled a 180 on Thursday and Fields is now the favorite to be picked third at -121.
Fields was +175 to go third overall with Jones favored at -150 on Wednesday before he held his second pro day workout. The 49ers were in attendance and a photo of Fields laughing with San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan was widely circulation on social media.
Jones is the second favorite for the third pick. His odds are now +100, ahead of North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance (+300).
FanDuel made a similar move Thursday, slotting Fields at -125 and in the favorite’s role with Jones +105 and Lance +650.
