Week 9 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Daniel Jones had a great game against the Lions last week, putting up 322 yards and four touchdowns as he almost brought the Giants back from an early 14-point deficit. Jones has had his ups and downs, as can be expected from a rookie, but he’s shown enough flashes to leave Giants fans and fantasy owners with optimism.
This week, Jones faces a Cowboys defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks and just held Carson Wentz to less than 200 yards in a lopsided victory before the bye last week. Still, the Cowboys have been inconsistent throughout the season and Jones should be able to take advantage of the quality weapons he has around him in Golden Tate, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. Jones is far from a sure thing, but as a QB2 option, he has upside.
