The rookie quarterback was highly efficient as a passer, finishing 18th in PFF passing grade, throwing 10-19 yards, 13th from a clean pocket and 10th on early downs. Those specific metrics tend to be sticky year over year and more predictive than raw counting stats. Still, those numbers were equally impressive for Jones, who posted the sixth-highest passer rating (92.5) and second-highest completion percentage (67.6%) for a rookie quarterback with at least 300 attempts in NFL history.Per the Athletic's Dan Duggan, the Giants want to unleash quarterback Daniel Jones. It's music to the ears of fantasy drafters looking for a late-round quarterback with upside, because Jones has the skill set to be that player in a better offensive environment. Before a Week 5 concussion, Jones was the QB8 overall and in points per game (23.3). The Giants quarterback ranked third in rushing yards per game (47/game) and second in PFF passing grade. This offseason, New York drafted the best offensive tackle in the draft with the selection of Evan Neal at No. 7 overall. It provides Jones the protection he desperately needs as he looks to prove to the New York organization that he is worthy of being the long-term answer at quarterback. With the Giants upgrading their entire offensive line through free agency and the draft, Jones is back on the fantasy QB2 radar in Superflex formats. Recall that last season he was playing behind PFF's third-worst graded offensive line. He will also benefit greatly from the No.1-easiest strength of schedule for QBs.

The Draft Zone
Good real-life QB, but offense will rely on ground game and play slow. 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 Daniel Jones finished last year as the QB17 in fantasy points per game, but his rushing (298 yards, 11 games) was a decent part of that production. As a passer, he still struggled, ranking outside the top 20 at his position in pressured accuracy, catchable pass rate, and true completion rate. Jones better hope Brian Daboll has the secret sauce to get him on track because it's not looking good. This year, Jones is a matchup play that I'll happily leave on the waiver wire in 12-team formats.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Unlike some of the QBs drafted ahead of him in 2021, Jones rarely looked overwhelmed or overmatched in his rookie year. On the other hand, Jones was much more of a game manager than a playmaker as a rookie, and he offers little rushing value. There's certainly room for growth, but he needs more pass-catching weaponry, and he needs Bill Belichick to loosen the reins.There's a ray of hope now that Jones has gone from a head coach/offensive coordinator combo of Joe Judge and Jason Garrett to Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka. But Jones' future with the Giants in uncertain after the team declined his fifth-year option. Jones' mobility is appealing, but he has been an inefficient turnover machine during his first three NFL seasons. The hope is that Daboll can turn Jones into a Josh Allen Lite, but Jones simply can't match Allen's arm strength. If you're going to invest in this fixer-upper, make sure you don't pay much.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jones was the best rookie in his class last year, but he plays on a run-heavy offense and until the Patriots have an elite wide receiver, it will be difficult for him to be more than a QB2.
