    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    Ever since Daniel Jones tore his ACL last season, putting to rest any chances of rebounding from an abysmal start to lead his team to the playoffs for the second year in a row, there has been constant chatter in New York about committing a first-round draft pick to the quarterback position. According to Ari [...]

  • Giants Visit With Bo Nix, Spencer Rattler

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    The New York Giants visited with Oregon quarterback Bo Nix and South Carolina quarterback Spencer Rattler this week, according to sources. The Giants continue to do their due diligence on the QB position ahead of this month's NFL draft at all levels of the draft. Nix is a potential first-round pick, but he's not expected to go as early as New York's sixth overall pick. Rattler is seen as a mid-round selection. The G-Men have six picks in this year's draft with one in every round other than the seventh. They continue to say that Daniel Jones (knee), who is coming off a torn ACL, is their starter when healthy, but they are wisely planning to have better depth behind him in 2024 and beyond if he gets hurt again or disappoints this fall.

  • Plan Is For Daniel Jones To Be Fully Cleared For Training Camp

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee), who is returning from a torn ACL that he suffered in 2023, told reporters on Monday that the plan is for him to be fully cleared for training camp this summer. Jones has not had any setbacks since undergoing surgery on Nov. 22 to fix his right ACL tear. The 26-year-old also said the neck injury he dealt with last year before hurting his knee is in the rearview mirror. Despite the fact that the Giants are considering drafting another QB at the end of this month, they continue to say that Jones will be the unquestioned starter under center when he returns from his knee injury. Although Jones had a career year in 2022, plenty of questions remain as to whether he can repeat that performance, especially now that running back Saquon Barkley is no longer in town. Consider him a low-upside QB2 with more question marks coming off a serious knee injury.

  • Jayden Daniels Meeting With Giants On Monday

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    Former LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels is going on a top-30 visit with the New York Giants on Monday, reported by NFL insider Ian Rapoport. The 2024 Heisman Trophy winner is projected to be taken as high as No. 2 overall to the Washington Commanders, but New York has remained interested in meeting and visiting with him. In his fifth collegiate season, Daniels threw for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns, and four interceptions and rushed 135 times for 1,134 yards and ten scores. Giants head coach Brian Daboll has had success with mobile quarterbacks like Josh Allen and Daniel Jones, so this could be a great fit. The G-Men are slated to pick No. 6 overall, meaning they'd likely have to trade up to acquire Daniels. Wherever Daniels lands, he has top-12 potential in fantasy football right away thanks to his elite rushing upside.

  • Giants Could Draft A Quarterback This Year

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    While New York Giants president and CEO John Mara still has faith in quarterback Daniel Jones (knee), he told reporters on Monday at the NFL meetings that he wouldn't stop general manager Joe Schoen from taking a quarterback in the upcoming draft. "I think the Daniel (Jones) we saw in 2022 is the real deal. I still have all the confidence in the world in him. Yes, I think we all expect him to be the starter in 2024," Mara said. Jones is no lock to be ready for Week 1 in 2024 after tearing his ACL last year, but the Giants continue to stay that when he's healthy, he'll be the team's starter under center. The G-Men aren't giving up on the former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke, but 2024 might be his make-or-break season. Drafting a QB this year would give the Giants some insurance at the position.

  • Daniel Jones Not Guaranteed To Be Ready For Week 1

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said there's no guarantee that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) will be ready for Week 1, but Daboll said "when he gets back, he'll be the guy." The Giants are sticking with Jones as their starter, but he's coming off a torn right ACL in 2023 and might not be ready to go for the start of the 2024 season this fall. The 26-year-old had a career year in Daboll's first season as head coach in 2022, but Jones disappointed behind a terrible offensive line last year before blowing his knee out. Jones resumed throwing in early February and could take part in 7-on-7 drills this spring, but it appears now there's a chance that Drew Lock could be under center for the G-Men in Week 1. Jones is only one year into his four-year, $160 million extension and the Giants could be forced to move on if he doesn't improve in 2024.

  • Giants Add Jermaine Eluemunor To Offensive Line

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    The New York Giants signed free-agent offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor to a two-year, $14 million deal on Monday. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder spent the last three seasons with the Raiders, playing under new Giants offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo the last two years. The 29-year-old gave up just six sacks in 905 offensive snaps for the Raiders last year in all 17 games, according to Pro Football Focus. He was originally a fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 and also played two years with the New England Patriots before joining the Raiders. The Giants also signed guard Jon Runyan on Monday, so they are clearly looking to upgrade what was a terrible offensive line in 2023. Quarterback Daniel Jones was sacked 30 times last year before tearing the ACL in his knee in November. Eluemunor will give New York solid depth at the tackle spots behind Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal.

  • Giants Have Pressing Offensive-Line Needs

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    The New York Giants have so many offseason needs in 2024, but The Athletic's Charlotte Carroll thinks their most pressing need is at offensive line, following a season in which the Giants allowed the second-most sacks (85) in NFL history. Their atrocious offensive line is one of the reasons quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) was unable to stay healthy. Without a healthy and successful offensive line, Jones and the rest of New York's offense won't have much of a chance. The G-Men are going to need to find upgrades along their offensive line in both free agency and the upcoming NFL draft in free agency. New York started its offensive-line renovations this offseason by cutting guard Mark Glowinski this week.

  • Daniel Jones Has Been Throwing

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen said that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) started stationary throwing two weeks ago, and the team thinks he could do 7-on-7 work this spring. Jones is currently on track to be ready for the start of training camp this summer. "I have faith in Daniel (Jones) as our starting quarterback," Schoen said. Despite Jones tearing his ACL last year, the Giants continue to put their faith in him as their starter going into the 2024 season, although they won't hesitate to add a QB in the upcoming NFL draft if the situation presents itself. The 27-year-old signed a four-year, $160 million extension before the 2023 season looked pretty bad behind an atrocious offensive line last season before his injury. If Jones struggles again early in 2024, the Giants could be looking to move on from him sooner than later.

  • Giants Open To Taking Quarterback In The Draft

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    If the situation presents itself in this year's NFL draft, the New York Giants would be open to pulling a trigger on a quarterback, according to ESPN New York's Jordan Raanan. Current starting QB Daniel Jones (knee), who was the sixth overall pick in 2019, has rarely been healthy in his five seasons and is rehabbing from a torn ACL this offseason. If head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen aren't comfortable putting all their chips on the table with Jones as the long-term future at the position, they could look to this year's draft to find Jones' potential replacement. The G-Men have the sixth overall pick and two second-round selections in which they could use to take a rookie signal-caller. It doesn't sound like the Giants have much confidence in Jones moving forward, and neither should fantasy managers.

  • Daniel Jones Says Rehab Is Going Well

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said his rehab from a torn right ACL is "going well." Jones tore his ACL on Nov. 5 and missed the rest of the year. "I'm making progress. I'm three months into it, and I've started running on the anti-gravity treadmill. It's going well," Jones said. The 26-year-old former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke played in just six games in 2023 after signing a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason. The Giants are hoping he'll stay healthy in 2024 and bounce back while costing $47 million against the salary cap. They continue to say that they are committed to him as their starter under center, but if he disappoints again in 2024, they could decide to move on quickly. Jones' rushing ability helps his fantasy cause, but overall he has a low fantasy ceiling as a QB2.

  • Giants Reiterate That Daniel Jones Is Their Starter

    Headshot for Daniel Jones

    New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen reiterated on Tuesday that the plan is for quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) to be the starter entering training camp this summer. However, Schoen didn't rule out the team drafting another quarterback this year -- they have the sixth overall pick in the first round. The Giants signed Jones to a four-year, $160 million extension last offseason but he played in just six games in 2023 before suffering a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee. The 26-year-old wasn't good in his six games, either, going 108-for-160 for 909 yards (5.7 yards per attempt), two touchdowns and six interceptions. In Jones' defense, the Giants' offensive line was among the worst in the league. Barring a setback, Jones should be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, but at best, he'll be a QB2 for fantasy managers with limited upside coming off a major injury.
