Daniel Jones Not Guaranteed To Be Ready For Week 1

Saturday, March 23, 1:08 PM

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said there's no guarantee that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) will be ready for Week 1, but Daboll said "when he gets back, he'll be the guy." The Giants are sticking with Jones as their starter, but he's coming off a torn right ACL in 2023 and might not be ready to go for the start of the 2024 season this fall. The 26-year-old had a career year in Daboll's first season as head coach in 2022, but Jones disappointed behind a terrible offensive line last year before blowing his knee out. Jones resumed throwing in early February and could take part in 7-on-7 drills this spring, but it appears now there's a chance that Drew Lock could be under center for the G-Men in Week 1. Jones is only one year into his four-year, $160 million extension and the Giants could be forced to move on if he doesn't improve in 2024.

Justin Herbert Out For The Season

Tuesday, December 12, 12:12 PM

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) will miss the final four regular season games after having surgery to fix the broken index finger on his right hand on Tuesday. Backup Easton Stick will now run LA's offense for the rest of the year, which will be a major downgrade for the rest of the Chargers' offensive skill players in fantasy leagues, mainly receiver Keenan Allen and running back Austin Ekeler. The Chargers are doing what is best for Herbert in the long term with the team sitting at 5-8 and out of the AFC playoff picture. Fantasy managers can safely drop Herbert now in single-year formats and look for a replacement if you don't already have one on roster. Through 14 weeks, Herbert finished as a top-10 fantasy QB with 3,133 passing yards on 456 attempts for 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's likely going to be working with a new head coach in 2024.
