Daniel Jones Struggles To Throw Ball Downfield In Loss

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 22 passes for 137 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception in the team's 30-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Giants' game plan focused on screens and short passes due to injuries along the offensive line. Jones rarely took shots down the field in an effort to avoid the San Francisco pass rush. The 26-year-old's interception came on what ultimately proved to be his final pass. Tyrod Taylor replaced him on the next drive with the game out of hand. Jones and the Giants will next host the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.

Daniel Jones To Carry The Load On Offense Thursday

Fresh off of the QB1 performance against the Arizona Cardinals, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is now tasked with facing one of the stingiest defenses in football. He'll have to do so without running back Saquon Barkley (ankle). The good news is that teams are abandoning the run quickly against San Francisco through the first two weeks of the season. If that's the case, the Giants' signal caller will be called upon to carry the offense. Still, against another sturdy defense in Dallas in Week 1, Jones' chances to score never came. He's not a starter for fantasy managers in single QB leagues and is a low-end QB2 in Superflex leagues this week.

Daniel Jones Scores Three Touchdowns In Comeback Win

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 31-28 comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals. He also added 59 yards and another score on the ground but tossed one interception. It wound up being a strong fantasy performance for the 26-year-old but started out as another forgettable day. Arizona jumped out to a 20-0 lead at the half before the Giants figured out their offense. Hopefully, New York's second-half surge is a sign of things to come. Jones may be called on to carry more of the offensive burden if running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) is unable to suit up on Thursday against San Francisco.

Daniel Jones - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has a prime opportunity for a bounce-back game in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona's defense was above average in their season opener, scoring a touchdown and holding the Commanders to 202 passing yards. But they let up a rushing touchdown to Sam Howell, which is a stronger aspect of Daniel Jones' game. The Cardinals also struggled to hold onto the ball on offense which could create short fields for Jones and Co. Consider Jones a high-end QB2 this week.

Daniel Jones Unable To Move The Football Against Dallas Defense

The New York Giants' offensive line was unable to contain the Dallas pass rush, leading to a forgettable night for quarterback Daniel Jones. Facing relentless pressure, the fifth-year tossed two interceptions in the first half and nearly threw a third in the 40-0 loss. The Cowboys sacked Jones seven times. By the end of the game, Jones' final stat line was 15 completions for 104 yards. He also added 43 yards on the ground. The 26-year-old routinely struggles against the division rival and will look to rebound against a beatable Arizona Cardinals' defense in Week 2.

Daniel Jones A Potential Bust Candidate Against Dallas

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will begin the 2023 season facing off against a familiar foe. The Dallas Cowboys' opportunistic defense limited Jones to a 56.9 percent completion percentage, 424 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in two games last season. The 26-year-old does rely on his legs to boost his fantasy football numbers. But, even with a 79-yard rushing performance during the Week 3 contest, Jones only scored 14.7 fantasy points. In Week 12, the total was just 14.5 fantasy points. The Cowboys appear to be fielding a strong defense again in 2023 and that could spell trouble for the fifth-year pro, even with new receiving options in Darren Waller, Parris Campbell, and Jalin Hyatt.

Giants Restructure Daniel Jones' Contract

The New York Giants restructured quarterback Daniel Jones' contract on Monday, converting $8.42 million of his base salary this year into a signing bonus, creating $6.315 million in salary cap space, according to a source. The move gives the Giants some space to potentially add another player before the start of the 2023 regular season, which begins this Thursday. The 26-year-old signal-caller excelled in head coach Brian Daboll's first year with the team in 2022, posting a career-high 67.2 completion percentage for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions in 16 regular season games. He also ran for a career-high 708 yards and seven TDs on 120 carries. Because of his rushing abilities alone, Jones is a low-end QB1 in fantasy.

Daniel Jones Looks Surgical In Preseason Debut

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones finished the night 8-for-9 passing for 69 yards and a touchdown, all in one drive, in the team's 21-19 preseason win against the Panthers. He also added one carry for six yards. It was the first game action for Jones this preseason. The veteran looked toward his new tight end Darren Waller early and often. The pair connected for the first two completions of the game. The next play, and Jones' only blemish, looked to be complete before a defender knocked the ball loose. A short touchdown pass to tight end Daniel Bellinger capped off the drive. The 26-year-old sits on the fence between a QB1 and QB2 for fantasy football in 2023.

Daniel Jones To Start Friday Night

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will start the team's second preseason game on Friday night against the Carolina Panthers, according to sources. As expected, most of the Giants' starter will play some in the second preseason contest, but their snap counts are to be determined. The 26-year-old Jones and the rest of the starters on offense probably won't be out there for too long after sitting in the preseason opener last week. Jones had the best season of his career in 2022 under first-year head coach Brian Daboll, and the organization is hoping he'll continue to improve from here. He'll have a new tight end in Darren Waller that should help, but Jones still doesn't provide enough as a passer to be considered anything more than a low-end QB1 in fantasy.
