Fantasy Impact

The number two overall pick has made it official with Washington. After the Commanders' hot and cold offense with former QB Sam Howell last year, Daniels will look to establish offensive consistency and stay relevant in the NFC East.

Jayden Daniels goes through 11-on-11 drills Wednesday

Jayden Daniels went through 11-on-11 drills in front of reporters for the first time at practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

It was the first time Daniels went against something "resembling an NFL style pass-rush" in front of reporters. He showcased his dual threat ability, while also showing his calm presence around blitzers. Daniels will look to continue to show off his skills in camp heading into training camp ahead of his rookie season.

Jayden Daniels selected No. 2 by Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders have selected QB Jayden Daniels with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was the favorite to take over at quarterback in Washington in 2024. The former LSU Tiger completed 72.2% of his passes, with 3,812 passing yards, and 40 touchdowns in an amazing final season in college. Daniels will have Austin Ekeler, Brian Robinson, Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, and Zach Ertz as his primary play makers. The one concern for Daniels and the Commanders is protecting the rookie quarterback with an offensive line that struggled in 2023.

Jayden Daniels hopes to land with Raiders or Vikings

Jayden Daniels hopes to land with either the Las Vegas Raiders or the Minnesota Vikings. He has connections with Raiders coach Antonio Pierce who was with him at Arizona State, on the other hand, playing under Kevin O’Connell sounds appealing.

Fantasy Impact

Pairing Daniels with one of Davante Adams or Justin Jefferson would be great for fantasy managers, but in all likelihood, the Washington Commanders are staying pat and could select him. If they don’t, New England could as well, but rumor has it that they may trade back, opening the door for teams like Minnesota to move up and get him. A lot will be decided in the next few hours, including Daniels landing spot, be it a preferred team or not.
