Player Outlook
In his first year under Brian Daboll, Jones has significant upside in leagues that allow you to start two quarterbacks, but can be ignored on Draft Day in one-quarterback leagues. Jones' upside comes from Daboll's presence and his rushing ability. The Giants' QB has averaged 26 rushing yards per game each of the past three seasons, which is enough to elevate an average passer to top-12 consideration. Unfortunately, Jones has been far from average as a passer. Specifically, his inability to get into the end zone the past two seasons has crushed any Fantasy appeal. If Daboll can get more out of the Giants' receiving corps, it's possible we see that in change in 2022.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Likely for action vs. Bengals

    Coach Brian Daboll said Monday he intends for the Giants' first-team offense and Jones to play in Sunday's preseason contest against the Bengals, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Daboll said he hasn't yet determined how many series Jones and the first-team offense will handle in New York's second exhibition. Jones handled the first two offensive drives during the preseason opener against New England, so he and the starting unit could be in line for a similar amount of work Sunday when the Giants host the Bengals.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: In line to see action Thursday

    Jones is slated to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. It remains to be seen how long Jones will be in the game, but Dan Duggan of The Athletic speculates that the Giants' healthy starters "could play as little as a series or as much as a quarter," depending on how they fare early on in the contest. Once Jones exits the game, Tyrod Taylor and Davis Webb are next in line for the team's QB reps.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Has rough day in camp

    Jones went 5-for-15 with a pair of interceptions during scrimmage in training camp Monday, per Jordan Raanan of The blame isn't all on Jones' shoulders -- New York pass catchers had multiple drops in practice, and the entire offense is learning a new system -- but it's nonetheless not promising that Jones thus far hasn't looked good in camp. Tyrod Taylor even got a rep with the first-team offense Monday, though it's unlikely that anyone but Jones will be under center when the season starts. New head coach Brian Daboll is bringing a new offense that offers reason to be optimistic, but Jones may have to prove that he can be the answer at quarterback to keep his job the entire season.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Improving in practice

    Jones had his best day of training camp Tuesday, according to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record and Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Stapleton reports that Jones completed 16 of 20 passes on a day where the situational focus was on third-and-longs, though the QB did also throw two interceptions to CB Adoree' Jackson. The situation in New York is a bit different this year, as the quarterback seemingly faces a make-or-break season with new head coach Brian Daboll not necessarily tied to Jones. There's also some hope for the rest of the offense to rebound, with offseason additions including first-round pick Evan Neal at right tackle and second-round pick Wan'Dale Robinson at wide receiver. Healthier years from RB Saquon Barkley and WRs Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney could also go a long way toward giving Jones a decent supporting case for the first time in his career.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Option won't be picked up

    The Giants don't intend to pick up the fifth-year option on Jones' contract, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Per Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, exercising Jones' option would have committed the Giants to paying him $22.3 million in 2023. That said, if the 2019 first-rounder plays well this coming season, the team will have the option to pursue an extension with Jones or place the franchise tag on him next year. The QB, who turns 25 next month, remains atop the team's depth chart, now backed up by veteran signal-caller Tyrod Taylor.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Feeling better after neck injury

    Jones (neck) said he's "feeling good" and "ready to go" as the Giants begin their offseason program this week, Michael Eisen of reports. The 24-year-old struggled to recover from a neck strain at the end of last season, ultimately missing the final six games. Even so, he's been running and throwing since the second week of January, and It sounds like he's not expecting any more trouble from the injury going forward. Jones can now turn his focus to learning a new offense from former Bills OC Brian Daboll, who chose former Chiefs passing game coordinator Mike Kafka to be the offensive coordinator in New York. It's unclear if the Giants intend to exercise the fifth-year option on Jones' contract before the May 2 deadline.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Getting another shot in New York

    Giants team president John Mara said Wednesday that he maintains faith in Jones (neck) and views him as New York's starting quarterback heading into 2022, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "We've done everything possible to screw this kid up since he's been here," Mara said. "We certainly have not given up on Daniel Jones." That said, Jones may be looking at a make-or-break season in Year 4, even if the Giants end up exercising his fifth-year option for 2023 before the May 2 deadline. He'll have to adjust to a new coaching staff once again, but Jones should at least be healthy for the start of the offseason program, considering he's been lifting, running and throwing since at least Jan. 10 after missing the end of the season with a neck injury. Also working in his favor is a talented group of skill position players, though all of the key pass catchers are coming off injury-plagued seasons, and the offensive line remains a question. Mara ruled out the possibility of trading for Deshaun Watson and said the Giants need to give Jones more help before making an "intelligent evaluation" on his future, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: No limitations in workouts

    Jones (neck) said Monday that he doesn't have any limitations when lifting, running and throwing, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports. Jones missed the final six games of the regular season due to his neck injury but doesn't expect the issue to be a long-term concern. The 24-year-old won't face contact until at least August, and he said Monday that he expects to be fully cleared by this summer. Across his 11 appearances in 2021, Jones completed 232 of 361 passes for 2,428 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions while rushing 62 times for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Set to avoid surgery

    Giants head coach Joe Judge confirmed that Jones (neck) won't require surgery to address the neck strain that resulted in the quarterback being placed on injured reserve Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Judge noted that the Giants made the decision to shut Jones down for the remaining three games of the season as a matter of precaution after doctors didn't see enough progress in the 24-year-old's recovery over the past couple weeks to clear him for taking contact. That being said, Jones is expected to show more improvement while resting over the next several weeks, so he looks like he should be ready to go for OTAs in the spring. Around the same time, the Giants will have to decide whether to exercise Jones' fifth-year option for 2023. If New York chooses to forgo exercising the option, Jones would likely head into 2022 as a lame-duck starter, if the Giants don't trade him elsewhere or bring in legitimate competition for the top job.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Likely shut down for season

    The Giants plan to shut Jones down for the remainder of the season, though the organization is optimistic that his strained neck isn't a long-term concern, Jordan Raanan of reports. Since sustaining the injury Week 12 against the Eagles, Jones has been able to practice on a limited basis, but he hasn't been available to play in either of the Giants' past two games because doctors haven't cleared him to take contact. The Giants apparently don't expect Jones to get a clean bill of health at any point during the final three weeks of the season, so he'll likely head to injured reserve in the coming days as New York proceeds with Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm as its quarterbacks the rest of the way. The third-year signal-caller demonstrated progress in the Giants' first five games of the campaign by committing just two turnovers (one interception and one lost fumble), but he regressed over his final seven games before suffering the season-ending injury. He'll wrap up the campaign with a 64.3 percent completion rate for 6.7 yards per attempt and 10:7 TD:INT over 11 games, numbers roughly in line with what he posted in 2020. The Giants will have to decide in the spring whether to exercise his fifth-year option for 2023, with any decision likely signaling if the organization views him as its long-term solution under center.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Officially ruled out

    Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Jones continues to log limited practices but still doesn't have medical clearance to play in a game or take contact. Mike Glennon will make another start for the Giants this Sunday, with Jones hoping to return for Week 16 against the Eagles.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Still limited in practice

    Jones (neck) remained a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Jones has now been listed as a limited participant on each of his team's eight practice reports since he was diagnosed with a strained neck coming out of a Week 12 win over the Eagles. As his lack of advancement to full activity would suggest, Jones remains in a holding pattern in his recovery from the injury, with head coach Joe Judge telling Sean Farrell of The Bergen Record on Thursday that there's "no change" in the quarterback's status at this point. Unless he gains clearance from doctors Friday to resume taking contact, Jones will likely miss his third consecutive game Sunday against Dallas, paving the way for Mike Glennon to make another start.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Limited on estimated report

    Jones (neck) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice reports, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. The Giants merely held a walk-through session to kick off Week 15, but Jones would have put in a similar rep count to what he managed the previous two weeks while tending to a strained neck. He recently met with a specialist for a second time, but he still appears to be awaiting clearance to take contact. Until he does so, Jones won't be a candidate to play, allowing Mike Glennon to continue to earn spot starts. Glennon started the past two games in place of Jones and completed 40 of 80 attempts (50 percent) for 378 yards (4.7 YPA), two touchdowns and two interceptions.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Visit with specialist on tap Monday

    Jones is slated to visit with a specialist and also will undergo another scan on his neck Monday, coach Joe Judge told Shannon Spake on the Fox broadcast of Sunday's game against the Chargers. Jones traveled to L.A. early last week to meet with a specialist regarding his strained neck, but he has yet to be cleared for contact, as evidenced by the Giants listing him as limited in practice Wednesday through Friday and ultimately ruling him out for a second consecutive contest. Mike Glennon has filled in for Jones during the latter's absence, but the offense has been futile, with just 22 points through nearly eight quarters of action. Monday's potential developments could set in motion the return of Jones to the top of the QB depth chart.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Another absence on tap

    Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Chargers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Jones has been unable to gain clearance to play through a strained neck and thus will miss his second straight game. As for his replacement under center, Mike Glennon made enough progress through the concussion protocol this week to log a full practice Friday, and coach Joe Judge stated confidence that Glennon will clear the final phase -- an examination with an independent neurologist -- in time to play Sunday, per Jordan Raanan of According to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, Glennon did just that late Friday, giving him another spot start while Jake Fromm will serve as the backup.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Limited again Wednesday

    Jones (neck) was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Jones is in the midst of what's expected to be a multi-week absence due to a strained neck, having already sat out the Giants' Week 13 loss in Miami. Per Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger, Jones visited a specialist in Los Angeles on Monday and is still awaiting clearance for contact. Even so, Jones was able to get on the field for a fourth consecutive practice dating back to last week, while the Giants' No. 2 quarterback Mike Glennon, was a spectator Wednesday while he works his way through the concussion protocol. The Giants expect Glennon receive to clearance to play ahead of Sunday's road game against the Chargers, but they are preparing Jake Fromm for a spot start if needed.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Looks set for another absence

    Jones (neck) is considered likely to miss the Giants' Week 14 game against the Chargers, Ralph Vacchiano of reports. Jones missed Sunday's 20-9 loss against the Dolphins due to a neck injury serious enough that head coach Joe Judge refused to rule out the possibility of it being season-ending. Prior reports have labeled Jones as week-to-week, but he still managed to log three limited practices before being ruled out prior to Sunday's loss in Miami since he hadn't been cleared for contact. All things considered, though Jones hasn't been ruled out for Week 14 yet, he appears to be trending toward another absence. Meanwhile, top backup Mike Glennon suffered a concussion in his start against the Dolphins, making his own status uncertain for Week 14. As a result, Jake Fromm could get the chance to start in Los Angeles next weekend for what would be his NFL debut.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Multi-week absence expected

    Jones (neck), who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, will undergo additional testing Monday and is expected to remain out for multiple weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Prior reports previously described Jones as week-to-week after he suffered a strained neck in the Giants' Nov. 28 with over the Eagles, but the quarterback looked to have a legitimate shot at avoiding an absence after he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday through Friday. However, Jones wasn't able to take contact in any of those sessions, and that appears to be the main obstacle he'll have to clear in order to return to the lineup. The Giants fear that Jones is dealing with a "ligament issue and maybe more," according to Rapoport, and the 24-year-old's upcoming tests should shed more light on the extent of his injury and whether he'll have any chance at playing next week against the Chargers. Mike Glennon will start in his stead Sunday in Miami and would likely pick up any additional starts that Jones might miss.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Won't play Sunday

    Giants head coach Joe Judge said Jones (neck) hasn't been cleared for contact work and has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Miami, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Jones was able to practice as a limited participant this week after picking up a neck strain in the Week 12 win over the Eagles, but he hasn't made enough progress to have a chance to suit up Sunday. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Jones' injury isn't believed to be of the season-ending variety, though it's unclear when the signal-caller will be cleared for contact work. Mike Glennon is set to start at quarterback for New York on Sunday, while Jake Fromm, who was signed off Buffalo's practice squad Tuesday, will handle backup duties.

  • Giants' Daniel Jones: Another limited practice

    Jones (neck) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Since emerging from Week 12 action with a strained neck, Jones has gone from a week-to-week proposition to something closer to day-to-day after being able to get on the practice field Wednesday and remain there in the second session of the week. Coach Joe Judge told Jordan Raanan of on Thursday that a decision on Jones is on the team's medical staff, but he's willing to take it down to the wire to see if the quarterback can play Week 13. With the Giants kicking off Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET, Jones' status will be known about 90 minutes prior, but if he's unable to go the team will hand over the offense to veteran Mike Glennon.
