Player Outlook
Jones had a breakout season in 2022, becoming one of nine quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for at least 3,000 yards (3,205) and rush for at least 700 yards (708). He added 15 passing touchdowns, five interceptions, seven rushing touchdowns and three fumbles, while averaging 19.9 Fantasy points per game. The hope is Jones can build off that performance in his second season with coach Brian Daboll, and the Giants gave Jones new weapons this offseason in Darren Waller, Jalin Hyatt and Parris Campbell. If Wan'Dale Robinson and Sterling Shepard can return early in the season from injuries, along with Isaiah Hodgins and Darius Slayton, this could be a quality receiving corps, including Saquon Barkley. Jones is worth selecting in one-quarterback leagues as a high-end backup. If he can enhance his game from 2022, he could develop into a weekly starter. In Superflex and two-quarterback leagues, Jones is worth drafting no later than Round 4.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Resumes stationary throwing

    General manager Joe Schoen said Monday that Jones (knee) has resumed stationary throwing and that he has "faith in [Jones] as our starting quarterback," Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports. Jones, who is recovering from a right ACL tear, resumed stationary throwing two weeks ago and remains on track for the start of training camp. Schoen added that Jones could be ready for 7-on-7 work in spring. The Giants have consistently talked of Jones as their starter since the end of the 2023 regular season, and he's only one year into his four-year, $160 million contract extension, but the soon-to-be 27-year-old's miserable 2023 campaign also can't be overlooked. In six games before his season-ending injury Jones compiled just 909 passing yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 108 of 160 pass attempts (5.7 YPA). If a solid quarterback prospect falls to New York at the No. 6 overall pick in April's draft, the team's true confidence in Jones will be put to the test.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Out 8-to-10 months after surgery

    Jones (knee) is facing an expected recovery timeline of 8-to-10 months after undergoing successful surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ACL, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Jones suffered the season-ending right knee injury in a Nov. 5 loss to the Raiders. The 2024 NFL season is expected to kick off just under 10 months from the date of Jones' surgery, so he has a realistic chance of being fully cleared ahead of Week 1. Despite re-upping with the Giants on a four-year, $160 million contract extension this past spring, Jones may not be viewed as the organization's long-term answer under center after he posted an ugly 2:6 TD:INT in six appearances this season before injuring his knee. The Giants sit at 3-8 on the season heading into Week 11 action and could look to select a new franchise signal-caller with what could be a top-five pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Surgery set for Wednesday

    Jones is slated to undergo surgery on the torn ACL in his right knee Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Prior to his season ending in Week 9, Jones sat out the previous three games due to a neck injury, limiting him to just six appearances during the 2023 campaign. Overall, he completed a respectable 68 percent of his passes, but he also posted a career-low 5.7 yards per attempt, notched a 2:6 TD:INT and fumbled four times (one lost). Undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito will continue to direct the Giants offense, with Matt Barkley backing him up until Tyrod Taylor (ribs) comes off IR. Jones is expected to face an 8-to-10-month recovery from surgery, so while he likely won't be available for OTAs, he could be fully cleared ahead of Week 1 of the 2024 season.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Shifts to IR

    The Giants placed Jones (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Though no date has been set for Jones to have surgery, he'll require a season-ending procedure on his right knee after he suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, in what was his first appearance since a three-game absence due to a neck injury. Across six appearances in 2023, Jones finished a 67.5 percent completion rate to go with a 5.7 YPA and 2:6 TD:INT. Despite Jones having signed a sizable four-year extension during the offseason that contains $35.5 million fully guaranteed for 2024, there are now legitimate questions about whether New York will decide to proceed forth with him as the team's franchise quarterback. In addition facing a projected nine-month recovery timetable that could affect his availability for training camp, Jones is coming off a statistically unimpressive 2023 showing, and the the Giants could now be primed to enter the 2024 NFL Draft with an early first-round pick. In a corresponding transaction to Jones' placement on IR, veteran Matt Barkley has been signed from the practice squad to serve as the backup to new starting quarterback Tommy DeVito in Week 10 against the Cowboys.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Starting against Raiders

    Jones (neck) has no injury designation and will start Sunday against the Raiders, Art Stapleton of The Record Sports reports. Jones was medically cleared last Sunday but had already been ruled out against the Jets. After getting a full week of practice under his belt, Big Blue's starting quarterback will return for his first action since Week 5 against the Dolphins. With Tyrod Taylor (ribs) ruled out, Jones will be backed up by Tommy DeVito.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Another full practice

    Jones (neck) practiced fully Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Jones was medically cleared from his neck injury prior to this past Sunday's loss to the Jets, and coach Brian Daboll paved the way for the quarterback's upcoming return by stating he'd be a full practice participant Wednesday, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. Daboll ruled out Tyrod Taylor (rib cage) on Thursday, leaving Jones and undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito as the potential options to be under center Sunday at Las Vegas. The Giants have yet to officially name a starting quarterback for Week 9, as the team likely wants to see how Jones reacts to consecutive days of on-field work. In any case, with back-to-back uncapped sessions behind him, Jones seems on pace to get the nod this weekend.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Cleared for contact

    Jones (neck) has been medically cleared for contact heading into the Giants' Week 9 game against the Raiders, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports. Jones was reportedly cleared ahead of Sunday's loss to the Jets, though he remained inactive for a third straight game. With fill-in starter Tyrod Taylor (ribs) having sustained a potentially serious injury Sunday, Jones' ability to gain medical clearance comes at a welcome time. Given that Jones has a prior history of neck injury, the Giants could continue to proceed cautiously with his health. As such, Jones could remain a limited participant in practice Wednesday when the Giants begin Week 9 prep, but as long as he practices fully by Friday, he should be in line to start in Las Vegas.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: No lock to play again in 2023

    Giants head coach Brian Daboll was non-committal Friday when asked if Jones (neck) will definitively play again this season, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Daboll previously said Jones would be the team's starting quarterback once he gained medical clearance, and while that's presumably still the case, it's not clear when that will actually happen. Jones has been taking scout-team reps since last week, with his availability for games based on gaining clearance for contact from the medical staff rather than his ability to participate in practice. Jones is tending to his second significant neck injury in three years, and there's reportedly a risk of suffering a severe spinal injury if he takes contact before the issue fully subsides. The Giants haven't ruled Jones out beyond Sunday's game against the Jets, but it certainly sounds like he's in danger of missing additional time. Tyrod Taylor will make a third consecutive start this Sunday.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Out for third straight game

    Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Matt Citak of the Giants' official site reports. Tyrod Taylor will make his third consecutive start, as Jones remains limited in practice and still doesn't have clearance for contact. The quarterback's next chance to play will come Week 9 at Las Vegas on Nov. 5. Head coach Brian Daboll has already stated that Jones will reclaim the starting role once he's medically cleared to play.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: No change in status

    Head coach Brian Daboll said that Jones (neck) will practice again Wednesday but hasn't been cleared for contact and his workload won't increase, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Jones turned in a trio of limited practice last week before being ruled out ahead of the Giants' win over the Commanders, and by all accounts, his status hasn't yet tangibly changed. Daboll confirmed that Jones will be the Giants' starter when healthy, despite Tyrod Taylor having performed well in two consecutive starts. The longer it takes for Jones to be cleared for contact, however, the more difficult it becomes to envision him playing Sunday versus the Jets. Jones will likely be officially listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, and he will almost certainly need to practice in full Thursday or Friday to have any chance at playing this weekend.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Sitting out again Sunday

    Jones (neck) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Commanders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. As of Friday, Jones still wasn't cleared for contact due to the neck injury that he sustained Week 5 at Miami, and he'll miss a second game in a row as a result of the issue. In Jones' stead, Tyrod Taylor again will direct the Giants offense Week 7, while the former will aim to get healthy for next Sunday's matchup with the Jets.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Likely to sit Sunday

    Jones (neck), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup versus the Commanders, is considered a long shot to play, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Fowler's report seems to echo one given Friday by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, who relayed that Jones was "on the wrong side of questionable." As of Saturday, Jones has yet to be cleared for contact, making it unlikely that he suits up Sunday despite turning in a trio of limited practices this week. As a result, Tyrod Taylor appears likely to make his second consecutive start for Big Blue after throwing for 200 yards on 36 pass attempts in a 14-9 loss to the Bills last week.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Listed as questionable

    Jones (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network suggests Jones may be on "the wrong side of questionable" after head coach Brian Daboll revealed earlier Friday that the quarterback hadn't been cleared for contact. It sounds like it'll come down to a medical/doctor's decision ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, rather than being a matter of pain management or something that's left up to Jones. If he's out for a second straight week, Tyrod Taylor will make another start after nearly leading the Giants to an upset of the Bills this past Sunday. it won't be surprising if an announcement comes before Sunday morning, though for now fantasy managers should treat Jones as a potential game-time decision.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Set for limited practice

    Head coach Brian Daboll said that Jones (neck) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Matt Citak of the Giants' official site reports. Jones will throw Wednesday, but Daboll made clear that the quarterback isn't yet cleared for contact, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Per Dan Benton of USA Today, Jones said Tuesday in his appearance on FanDuel TV's "Up & Adams" that while his condition is improving, he's "still dealing with some of those symptoms" from the neck injury he suffered in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Dolphins. Jones will have two more chances to potentially increase his activity in practice this week, but for now, his status for Sunday's game against the Commanders is up in the air. If Jones is forced to miss a second straight game this weekend, Tyrod Taylor will be in store for another start under center.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Feels better, hopes to play Week 7

    Jones noted following Sunday's loss to Buffalo that his injured neck feels "a lot better" and that he is trying to be ready to play Week 7 versus Washington, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Jones injured his neck in the fourth quarter of a Week 5 loss to Miami and wasn't able to practice at all last week. The quarterback told Slater that he's "doing everything [he] can" to be ready for Sunday's game, though it bears mentioning that both Jones and head coach Brian Daboll expressed optimism early last week that he'd be able to take the field versus Buffalo this past Sunday, which didn't come particularly close to happening. The level of Jones' participation in practice this week should provide insight into his chances of playing Week 7. If Jones is forced to miss that contest, Tyrod Taylor again would step in as the starting signal-caller for a Giants team desperately in need of a win.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Tending to pain in his neck

    Jones said after Sunday's 31-16 loss at Miami that he has some discomfort in his neck but otherwise feels OK, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Jones also noted that the Giants will know more about the injury Monday, with Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports relaying that the QB has an MRI on tap to determine its nature and extent. At the time of his exit in the fourth quarter Sunday, he had just 119 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions on 14-for-20 passing and 24 more yards on four carries. If Jones needs to miss any time, Tyrod Taylor is on hand to man quarterback for New York.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: QBs to Sit

    The good news for Jones is that he's No. 2 in rushing yards among quarterbacks this season with 173. The bad news is everything else. He's scored 8.7 Fantasy points or less in three of four games this season, he hasn't scored a touchdown in each of the past two outings against San Francisco and Seattle and his offensive line is a mess after allowing 10 sacks against the Seahawks. We'll see if Jones can rebound against the Dolphins, who were just lit up by Josh Allen in Week 4 for 44.2 Fantasy points. But this is more about Jones, who has been too much of a disaster to trust, and he's barely a starting option in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues on the road in Week 5.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    If Jones' protection is better then I think he can be helpful for Fantasy managers. Seattle's defense struggled with Dalton last week, Goff the week prior and even Matthew Stafford threw for 334 yards in Week 1. I like Jones a little better if Saquon Barkley doesn't play or is on a limited snap count. This week I would start Jones over Goff, Joe Burrow and Dak Prescott.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    Jones was miserable in Week 1 against Dallas with 4.5 Fantasy points, but he rebounded nicely as expected in Week 2 at Arizona with 34.7 points. His protection was much better, and he went from seven sacks against the Cowboys to three against the Cardinals. Now, he gets to face the 49ers and Nick Bosa in Week 3, and Jones should be under duress again. On top of that, Saquon Barkley (ankle) is hurt, so the threat of a rushing attack is minimized. I would only start Jones in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues in Week 3, and the 49ers have allowed two passing touchdowns and four interceptions in two games against Kenny Pickett and Matthew Stafford.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Benched in blowout loss

    Jones completed 15 of 28 pass attempts for 104 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing for 43 yards on 13 attempts in Sunday's 40-0 loss to Dallas. Jones picked the wrong time to have his worst performance as a pro, as it came in the home opener following a wealthy contract extension this past offseason. Head coach Brian Daboll tried to let his struggling starter get things going in the second half, but things didn't improve, and he was forced to bring in Tyrod Taylor in garbage time. There isn't much of a silver lining to note either, other than that Jones managed to recover his two fumbles to avoid a four-turnover day. It is difficult to recommend a player after laying a dud, but anyone who started Jones this week should at least consider taking advantage of the upcoming soft matchup against Arizona next Sunday.
