Scouting report

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Daniel Jones blew up against Washington last week. In a close victory in overtime, Jones wound up with 352 yards and five touchdowns, while throwing no interceptions. Jones was only sacked once on the day and has actually only been sacked twice in his last three starts after getting beat up for much of the middle of the season. Jones has shown just enough flash to keep Giants fans hopeful for the future, but there are still a lot of questions to answer next season before determining his long-term potential. This week, he has upside coming off a five-touchdown game, but he’s risky against an Eagles defense that wants to win and ranks seventh in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Outside of a deep-shot option in 2QB leagues, Jones should be left on the bench to close out the season.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Washington Redskins

Daniel Jones returns from injury this week in what looks like a good matchup on the surface, but Washington actually ranks 11th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Jones has some potential and adds a little more pop and mobility to the team than Eli Manning at this stage in his career, but he's still a turnover machine and coming off an injury in a less-than-favorable matchup in what is likely a championship game? No thank you.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Philadelphia Eagles

Daniel Jones struggled against the Packers last week, throwing three interceptions and only one touchdown as the Giants got throttled 31-13. Jones is supposed to play this week, but he’s dealing with an ankle issue and is facing an Eagles defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere if possible, even in most 2QB leagues.

Update: Jones is out, so be sure to remove him from lineups if you were unfortunate enough to have him starting.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Green Bay Packers

Daniel Jones threw a pair of touchdowns against the Bears last night but it wasn’t enough to pull out a victory and the Giants fell to 2-9 on the season. He only threw for 150 yards, adding 27 on the ground. Jones hasn’t lit the world on fire this season, but he’s shown promise and he hasn’t thrown a pick for two consecutive weeks. The Giants defense certainly isn’t helping him. Only the Cardinals, Buccaneers and Dolphins allow more points per game this season.

This week, Jones faces a Packers defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks, so there should be some room for him to operate. However, the struggles of the offense, in general, makes him risky as anything more than a QB2 option in most fantasy leagues.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Chicago Bears

Daniel Jones had a great game against the Jets before the bye last week, throwing for 308 yards and four touchdowns in a close loss. Jones doesn’t have the Giants winning games, but he’s kept them competitive in most outings and his 15/8 TD/Int ratio is pretty good for a rookie. His 208 yards and two touchdowns on the ground buoy his fantasy potential as well.

This week probably isn’t the best time to start Jones, however, as he’ll face a tough Bears defense that stifled Jared Goff a week ago and ranks ninth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this season. He’s worth rostering as a second quarterback in most leagues but should really only be active in deep, 2QB leagues in a tough matchup.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at New York Jets

Daniel Jones had a rough game against the Cowboys on Monday night. He threw for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a blowout loss. While he added 54 rushing yards, he was sacked five times and failed to move the Giants’ offense with any kind of consistency. Jones has thrown eight interceptions over his past six games and save for his four-touchdown game against the Lions in Week 8, he’s been underwhelming across the board in that span. He still has a lot of long-term potential in dynasty formats, but he’s hard to roster in redraft leagues that use only one quarterback.

The Jets rank 19th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year, giving Jones some upside in what should be a pretty good matchup. If the Jets offense continues to struggle, however, the Giants could lean on Saquon Barkley even more throughout the game, limiting Jones’ potential. Most fantasy owners would settle for fewer turnovers for Jones, which is possible against the hapless Jets. He’s a low-end QB2 option or a risky streamer in most leagues this week.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.
