QB - NYG
Quietly coming in as the QB-nine last season, Jones deserves more respect from the community. Although he possesses an underrated rushing ability, he will need to pass for more than last year's 15 touchdowns to be a top-10 option. Thankfully, the team bolstered their passing weapons by drafting Jalyn Hyatt, signing Paris Campbell and Darren Waller, as well as bringing back Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepherd. He might not be sexy, but he has a steady shot at repeating his fantasy production of last season.
5/5: QB9 last year w/ Giants, despite absolutely NO ONE to throw to-- they go and add Darren Waller, Jalin Wyatt, Parris Campbell. Brian Daboll is a genius and has a million new toys to play with. Danny J could go NUTS!
A mistake-prone turnover machine during his first three NFL seasons, Daniel Jones flourished in Year Four under first-year Giants head coach Brian Daboll, finishing QB9 in fantasy scoring. Jones ran for 708 yards and seven touchdowns in 2022. He averaged only 200.3 passing yards per game and threw 15 TD passes in 15 starts, but Jones didn't have much pass-catching talent at his disposal and could increase his passing output now that the Giants have added more weaponry. Jones figures to be a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 in 2023 fantasy drafts.
It looks like the Giants want to keep Jones in 2023, but will it be on a franchise tag or a long-term deal and will he holdout if he is franchise tagged. Jones was a good QB2 in fantasy this year and he could have upside with a second year in the system and an upgrade at wide receiver.
Assuming he remains with NYG and Saquon. The rushing upside is just so real with Jones. He's a top 10 QB if his weapons improve.
