Summary

Carson Wentz. Kyler Murray. Aaron Rodgers. Jared Goff. Those are just a few highly regarded quarterbacks that underperformed Daniel Jones on a per game basis last year. Jones ended his rookie season as the 11th-best fantasy quarterback on a per game basis, which was a pleasant surprise to everyone other than GM Dave Gettleman. Jones took over the starting job in Week 3 and finished the year with 3,027 yards (62% completion rate), 24 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions along with 279 rushing yards and two rushing scores. He was far from perfect, but some of the blame fell on a rebuilding offensive line and head coach Pat Shurmur, who was fired in the offseason. New head coach Joe Judge will call upon Jason Garrett to elevate Jones' play. While Garrett had his critics as a head coach, it's worth noting his success in getting All Pro caliber play from Tony Romo and Dak Prescott; neither who had Jones' pedigree. There are plenty of questions surrounding the Giants, but Jones is firmly in the tier of young, high-upside quarterbacks worth drafting in the later rounds. (July 14)
