Daniel Jones to 'be the guy' upon return, timeline unclear

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that when veteran QB Daniel Jones "gets back, he'll be the guy," but was noncommittal on a timetable or a Week 1 return.

Daboll seemed confident in newly acquired QB Drew Lock, saying that "he knows what his role is going to be." However, he did reaffirm that, for now, Jones is the QB1 in New York. However, Daboll reportedly "balked at committing to a Week 1 return" but said Jones continues to improve health-wise. The Giants may give Jones one more year before it's easier to cut him after 2024, though their draft choices will indicate their plans.

Jones told reporters that after undergoing surgery, it was determined that it was just an ACL injury, no other structural damage. Giants GM Joe Schoen has said Jones is the starter next season if he is healthy for the Giants, though they'll likely still consider addressing the position in the NFL Draft next April.

Daniel Jones expected to remain starter when healthy

New York Giants GM Joe Schoen said Monday that the expectation remains that Daniel Jones is the team's starter when healthy.

Fantasy Impact

“We’re going to have to do something at quarterback,” Schoen said when asked if it means they won’t draft a quarterback. It is all very early a lot can change depending on where the Giants are drafting. Tyrod Taylor is going to be a free agent so they'll likely have to address the position at some point but whether that is early in the draft or not remains to be seen. At this moment, the Giants are on track for a top 5-6 pick to which point drafting a quarterback with that selection is a very realistic scenario.
