Draft note
by John Paulsen
There are some things potentially pointing to a Jones bounce-back season. He posted 16.4 points per game as a rookie–17.9 if you don’t count his ELEVEN fumbles–and has the sort of rushing floor (26.0 career rushing yards per game) that we’re looking for in a modern fantasy quarterback. But his sophomore season was an utter disaster: 14 starts, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Heading into 2021, there’s good (the arrival of Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney) and there’s bad (a dreadful offensive line). There is low confidence in OC Jason Garrett in turning this ship around, which is why Jones is the 23rd quarterback off the board.

NYG QB Daniel Jones - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Dallas Cowboys

Daniel Jones had a great week against the Saints last week in a surprise Giants victory. He threw for 402 yards, a pair of touchdowns and a pick and added 27 yards on the ground. Jones now has 188 yards rushing and is the QB6 in total fantasy points so far this season. The Giants' offense looks like it’s on the upswing, and Jones’ rushing makes him a viable streaming option at least for fantasy managers needing help at the position.

This week, Jones faces a surprisingly strong Cowboys defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Expect the Cowboys to get out ahead early, forcing Jones to throw the ball, making him a viable starting option. We have him as a fringe QB1 option this week.
