  • Giants, QB Daniel Jones Did Not Engage In Extension Talks

    The Giants and quarterback Daniel Jones did not engage in extension discussions prior to GM Joe Schoen‘s self-imposed Week 10 deadline to talk contract, as Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com writes. So, as expected, the contract situations of Jones and running back Saquon Barkley — both of whom are eligible for unrestricted free agency in March […]

  • Daniel Jones Totals 242 Yards In Week 12 Loss

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 21 of his 35 passing attempts for 228 yards and a touchdown while he rushed for 14 yards on three carries in the Week 12 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Despite the lack of receiving options for the former first-round pick, he's now thrown for 200-plus yards in back-to-back weeks for the first time this season as the Giants have played from behind more often in recent games. The Cowboys did a good job preventing the Duke product from creating with his legs as he saw a season-low three attempts and the second-fewest rushing yards in a game this season. Jones will look to continue his streak of 200-plus-yard passing games in Week 13 versus the Washington Commanders.

  • Daniel Jones Is Risky Option In Week 12 Against Cowboys

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is a risky option ahead of a Week 12 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday. The former first-round pick is coming off a game where he threw for a season-high 341 yards while rushing for 50 yards and a touchdown versus the Detroit Lions in Week 11. It was an extremely favorable matchup for the young quarterback against the Lions, but the matchup isn't great in Week 12 versus the Cowboys. Dallas allows the fourth-fewest points per game to QBs this season and the Cowboys own the second-highest pressure rate in the NFL. With Jones losing Wan'Dale Robinson for the rest of the season, he could struggle in Week 12.

  • Daniel Jones Totals 391 Yards In Week 11 Loss

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 27 of his 44 attempts for 341 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions while he also rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. Even though Jones threw two interceptions, he finished with a season-high in passing yards and he continues to contribute with his legs. The Giants haven't had to play from behind much this season, so it's still tough to trust the former first-round pick's passing production each week. That being said, Jones is appearing to be a viable starting option in deeper leagues due to his dual-threat ability.

  • Daniel Jones Primed For Productive Outing In Week 11

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is primed for a productive outing in Week 11 versus the Detroit Lions. The former first-round pick out of Duke hasn't been asked to air the ball out much this season as he's attempting only 26.3 passes per game, but Brian Daboll has utilized his rushing ability more thus far. Jones didn't log six-plus rushing attempts for the first time this season in Week 10 against the Houston Texans and he's tallied three games this year where he's eclipsed 60-plus rushing yards. With the Lions giving up the most points per game to QBs this season, the 25-year-old quarterback is certainly a viable starter in Week 11.

  • Daniel Jones Tosses Two Touchdowns In Week 10 Win Over Texans

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 13 of his 17 attempts for 197 yards and two touchdowns while also adding 24 rushing yards in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. The former first-round pick had a mistake-free game against the Texans, which was enough to improve the Giants to 7-2 on the season. With New York not having a ton of receiving options, the Giants continue to limit the number of passing attempts that the 25-year-old takes each game. Despite the lack of passing production, Jones remains a solid QB2 option for the rest of the season due to his running ability.

  • Daniel Jones Is Viable QB Option In Week 10

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is primed for a solid performance in Week 10 against the Houston Texans. The former first-round pick has only two games where he's thrown for 200-plus yards and he only has six passing touchdowns. That being said, Jones has recorded six-plus attempts on the ground in each of the first eight games and he's had four games with 30-plus rushing yards. The Duke product has also logged three rushing touchdowns thus far. Even with the lack of passing production that Jones has, he's a viable quarterback option in Week 10 versus the Texans at home.

  • Giants Remain Undecided On The Future Of Daniel Jones

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is in the final year of his rookie deal, meaning the team will need to decide on his future entering the offseason. According to General Manager Joe Schoen, the team has yet to decide. When asked about the young signal caller, he stated, "there's nine games left, so it's an ongoing evaluation for everybody on the roster." The 25-year-old has started all eight games, leading his squad to a 6-2 record, behind only the Eagles in the NFC. He's thrown for 1,399 yards, with six touchdowns and two interceptions, adding 363 yards rushing with three rushing touchdowns and three fumbles. A long-term contract would be good news for dynasty managers, who are benefiting from Jones's recent production.

  • Daniel Jones Limited To 196 Total Yards In Week 8 Loss

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 17 of his 31 attempts for 176 yards while he also rushed for 20 yards on six carries in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The former first-round pick has been able to perform well despite not having much production through the air this season, but that wasn't the case against the Seahawks. The Duke product had 21-plus rushing yards in six of the first seven games of the season entering Week 8, including three games where he had 68-plus rushing yards. Jones will have a bye week in Week 9, so he will look to bounce back in Week 10 against the Houston Texans.

  • Daniel Jones Is Viable Option In Week 8 Matchup With Seahawks

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is a viable option in Week 8 in a road matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. There could be potential rain in the forecast for Sunday's game, which would actually benefit Jones as he's been more effective with his legs this season. While the former first-round pick has thrown for more than 200 yards just twice this season, he has 343 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in the first seven games. The Seahawks have allowed the seventh-most rushing yards to quarterbacks thus far and Jones figures to get around 10 rushing attempts in Week 8, making him viable in all formats.

  • Daniel Jones Is A Low-End QB Option In Week 7 Against Jaguars

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is set to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7 and he's a low-end option in fantasy. The Giants lack weapons in the passing game due to injuries as Saquon Barkley and rookie Wan'Dale Robinson will likely be the two primary targets moving forward. New York hasn't asked Jones to throw the ball much as he's attempted more than 27 passes just twice this season. If you're forced to start the former first-round pick in Week 7, you're likely hoping he can produce points with his legs. Despite teams having 26 quarterback rushing attempts on the Jaguars (tied for the 10th most in the NFL), they've given up only 55 rushing yards to quarterbacks (third-fewest in the NFL) this season.

  • Daniel Jones Throws Two Touchdowns In Week 6 Win Over Ravens

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 19 of his 27 attempts for 173 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for six yards in a 24-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. The former first-round pick hadn't thrown a touchdown since Week 2 versus the Carolina Panthers, so it was a welcomed sight to see him toss two scores on Sunday. Above all, Jones avoided turning the ball over for the third consecutive week to help the Giants improve to 5-1 on the season. Even though New York is rolling right now, it's hard to say that Jones is a trustworthy option at quarterback moving forward.

  • Daniel Jones Is A Risky QB Option In Week 6

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is a risky option in a Week 6 home matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. The former first-round pick led an impressive comeback to defeat the Green Bay Packers in Week 5 with 217 passing yards and 37 rushing yards. However, Jones failed to throw or rush for a touchdown for the second time this season. Outside of Saquon Barkley, the 25-year-old quarterback doesn't have many weapons at his disposal, which limits his ceiling through the air. If you're starting Jones this week against the Ravens, you're likely hoping for rushing production, but that's risky versus a Baltimore defense that's looked better in recent weeks.

  • Daniel Jones Totals 254 Yards In Week 5 Win Over Packers

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was able to complete 21 of his 27 attempts for 217 yards while also adding 37 rushing yards during Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers. The former first-round pick was playing on an injured ankle, but he was able to tough through it and help lead the Giants to a victory in London to improve to 4-1 on the season. The 25-year-old quarterback failed to throw a touchdown for the second consecutive week as New York doesn't have many healthy offensive weapons outside of Saquon Barkley available. Even with Jones having a solid outing in Week 5, he shouldn't be considered a viable option in fantasy football most weeks.

  • Daniel Jones Will Play Against Packers

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (ankle) was taken off the final injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday in London against the Green Bay Packers in Week 5. Most of Jones' QB2 value in fantasy comes from his rushing ability -- he scored two touchdowns with his legs in the Week 4 win over the Chicago Bears -- and his ankle injury might prevent him from taking off as much on the ground this weekend. The 25-year-old will also be without receivers Kadarius Toney (hamstring), Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and Kenny Golladay (knee) in London. Backup Tyrod Taylor (concussion) was ruled out, so Davis Webb will serve as Jones' backup. Jones is a low-upside, low-end QB2 in superflex leagues.

  • Daniel Jones Trending In The Right Direction For Week 5

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (ankle) is trending in the right direction toward suiting up for the London game against the Green Bay Packers. He was limited in Thursday's practice. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, things are going in the right direction for Jones to be on the field in London. The Giants did not add a quarterback to the roster this week, with backup Tyrod Taylor (concussion) also injured, which is a good sign that Jones will suit up for Week 5. Jones has thrown for 631 yards and a 3:2 TD: INT ratio while adding 193 yards and two scores through the ground. If active, with a depleted receivers core, Kenny Golladay (knee), and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) ruled out, Jones is mainly an option in superflex leagues.

  • Daniel Jones "Looked Pretty Good," Will Test Ankle Thursday

    New York Giants Daniel Jones (ankle) "looked pretty good" during Wednesday's practice. He suffered an ankle injury in the Week 4 week win over the Chicago Bears. The 25-year-old will test his ankle on Thursday to see how he looks and feels before traveling to London. The Giants did not add a quarterback to the roster, indicating a good sign that Jones will suit up for the London game against the Green Bay Packers. Jones is an option in superflex leagues if he ends up being active against Green Bay in Week 5.

  • Daniel Jones Takes Part In Wednesday's Practice

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (ankle) took part in Wednesday's practice. The veteran quarterback did both individual stuff and team drills during the portion of practice open to the media. Jones suffered an ankle injury last week in New York's 20-12 win over the Chicago Bears. The former first-round pick left the game early but was forced back into action when Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion. While the Giants worked out a few quarterbacks earlier this week, Jones was healthy enough to partake in practice today. However, the New York quarterback isn't an ideal fantasy option against the Green Bay Packers this week, even if he is active.

  • Daniel Jones Is Considered Day-To-Day

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (ankle) is currently considered day-to-day following an injury he suffered during the Week 4 win over the Chicago Bears. The 25-year-old had his ankle wrapped, but never went into the locker room. Tyrod Taylor briefly came in before possibly suffering an injury himself. After that, Jones was forced back into the game to help close out the contest. The tests are still coming in, but the team appears to be optimistic about Jones. They will continue to monitor him throughout the week, but this doesn't sound like a long term injury.

  • Daniel Jones Questionable To Return In Week 4

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (ankle) is questionable to return against the Chicago Bears. Tyrod Taylor has entered the game. Jones completed just eight passes for 71 yards but made a huge impact on the ground, adding 68 rushing yards and two touchdowns. If Jones is forced to miss any time, Taylor would be a high-end QB3 with upside.

  • Daniel Jones A Low-End QB Option In Week 4

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones likely shouldn't be considered in Week 4 versus the Chicago Bears. The former first-round pick has yet to record 200 passing yards in a game this season while tossing three total touchdowns in the first three weeks. The only thing that makes the Duke product a somewhat relevant quarterback is the fact he's rushed for 125 yards on 25 attempts to begin the season. With Sterling Shepard now out for the season, Jones now has an even more depleted wide receiver room entering Week 4. The Giants will likely lean on Saquon Barkley on Sunday, so the 25-year-old quarterback is a low-end quarterback option this week.

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 20 of his 37 attempts for 196 yards and an interception while also rushing for 79 yards on nine carries in the Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The former first-round pick now has three consecutive games to start the season where he's had fewer than 200 passing yards for the Giants. While New York's wide receiver room isn't a dynamic group, Jones has failed to show many improvements in his game to begin the season. Even though it was a positive sign seeing the 25-year-old quarterback make plays with his legs, his lack of passing production and turnover concerns makes him a quarterback to avoid in fantasy football right now.

  • Daniel Jones Not Worth Starting In Week 3 Against Cowboys

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones isn't worth starting in fantasy football lineups in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Giants themselves have gotten off to a nice 2-0 start to the season, defeating the Tennessee Titans and the Carolina Panthers. However, the former first-round pick out of Duke has only thrown for 364 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in two games. He's also only added 46 rushing yards on 16 attempts. Besides Jones not being asked to do much through the air, the wide receiver room on the Giants has been lackluster to begin the season. With the Cowboys having a solid defensive unit in 2022, you're better off starting someone else over Jones in Week 3.

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 22 of his 34 attempts for 176 yards and a touchdown while also adding 21 rushing yards on 10 carries in the Week 2 win over the Carolina Panthers. The Giants didn't need the former first-round pick to do much in the win for the second consecutive week, but at the very least, he didn't turn the ball over. New York has now won their first two games of the season for the first time since 2016 in their first year under Brian Daboll. With Saquon Barkley back healthy and the defense playing well, the Giants just need Jones to take care of the football. The 25-year-old quarterback should only be considered in very deep leagues or as a fill-in option for an injured quarterback.

  • Daniel Jones Set Up For Decent Matchup Against Panthers

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is scheduled to play the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. The former No. 6 overall pick had an efficient performance in Week 1 versus the Tennessee Titans, though, his numbers were underwhelming with 188 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and one interception while completing 17 of his 21 attempts. The Duke product also ran for 25 yards on six carries, helping him record 17 fantasy points in Week 1. Jones will go up against the Panthers on Sunday after Carolina lost to a Jacoby Brissett-led Cleveland Browns squad in Week 1. With the 25-year-old quarterback having decent usage in the running game, he is a decent second quarterback option in Superflex leagues.

  • Daniel Jones A Low-End QB Option In Season Opener

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will hit the road to take on the Tennessee Titans to begin the 2022 season. There is a ton of pressure on the former No. 6 overall pick to perform well this season with the arrival of Brian Daboll as the team's new head coach. The fourth-year quarterback will have Saquon Barkley, Kadarius Toney, Kenny Golladay, and Wan'Dale Robinson as his top weapons in Week 1 versus the Titans. Tennessee's defense could present some problems for Jones, especially with the Duke product needing time to develop chemistry in a new offense. The 25-year-old signal-caller is a low-end quarterback option in Week 1 while he faces a defense that surrendered the second-fewest points per game to quarterbacks last season.

  • Mike Kafka To Call Plays For Giants In Week 1

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that offensive coordinator Mike Kafka will call plays for the offense in Week 1 of the regular season this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Kafka is in his first season as the team's coordinator after serving as quarterbacks coach the last two years for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Giants are hoping that he can help quarterback Daniel Jones improve in his fourth NFL season. Don't be surprised if Daboll, who has experience calling plays for the Buffalo Bills, takes over play-calling duties if the Giants offense gets off to a bad start in 2022. If the team's wide receivers can stay healthy, Jones could surprise a lot of folks.
