Daniel Jones (neck) is expected to be ready for offseason training.
This is according to new Giants head coach Brian Daboll at the NFL Annual Meetings. There were unsubstantiated rumors that Jones' career was in jeopardy due to his neck injury that forced him to miss the end of last season, so it's great to hear that the fourth-year quarterback is fine. All offseason, the Giants have been clear that they are building around Jones and do not feel he's been put in a fair spot through his first three seasons. Entering a contract year with the Giants reportedly unlikely to pick up his fifth-year option, Jones will look to stay healthy and stay consistent to show he can be a long-term franchise quarterback—it'll help if the offensive line can take a step forward.
Daniel Jones (neck) is out for the season.
This has been the feeling since Jones has missed the past couple of games with the neck issue, and the Giants are placing Jones on injured reserve, officially ending his year. Now, the hope is that Jones will be 100% for the start of offseason activities in 2022. The Giants say in a statement that they expect a "full recovery" for Jones, which is great to hear considering some of the rumors that have been swirling. Jones' 2021 campaign ends with 2,428 passing yards, ten passing touchdowns, seven interceptions, 62 carries, 298 rushing yards, and two rushing touchdowns in 11 games. It was yet another difficult season for the Giants in terms of staying healthy; and despite the obvious flashes he's shown, Jones has had trouble putting everything together consistently for a variety of reasons. The former first-round pick is entering a critical fourth NFL season next year.
Daniel Jones (neck) is considered week-to-week, according to NFL Network.
Jones suffered a neck strain on the second play of Sunday's win over the Eagles, and he is now going to miss Week 13 and possibly beyond. It's an unfortunate break with the Giants hoping to build momentum with the final wild card spot in the NFC up for grabs, but New York will now turn to Mike Glennon as the starter with new signing Jake Fromm backing him up until Jones is healthy enough to return. This news is an obvious downgrade to the entire offense from a fantasy perspective.
Daniel Jones has been cleared to play in Week 6.
Jones is fully cleared from protocol and is off the Week 6 injury report, so he's ready to play on Sunday against the Rams. This is great to hear after Jones stumbled off the field last week. He'll have a tough task facing Los Angeles this week, but his presence will be a boost for the Giants offense.
Daniel Jones leaves Week 5 game against the Cowboys.
Jones was trying to run it in by the goal line and unfortunately got up wobbly. He's headed off the field and will now obviously be in the NFL's concussion protocol. We'll let you know if anything changes, but it's difficult to see Jones returning to today's game. Saquon Barkley (ankle) has already been ruled out for the rest of the game. Before leaving, Jones was 5/13 for 98 yards along with three carries for nine yards.
Daniel Jones (hamstring/ankle) is starting tomorrow, according to NFL Network.
As stated yesterday, this was the expectation, and New York will have their quarterback under center for a huge game versus Baltimore. Jones probably shouldn't be in lineups due to the matchup, but he will hopefully provide a boost to the skill-position players of the Giants.
Daniel Jones (hamstring/ankle) is questionable for Week 16.
Jones is expected to play this weekend, but his status likely won’t be known until Sunday. Ideally, fantasy owners will have a better option for championship week since Jones has a difficult matchup versus the Ravens.
Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) is not expected to start tomorrow night.
The Giants have wanted to make a decision on their starting quarterback for tomorrow against the Browns by today, and it appears they have made it, with ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that Colt McCoy is expected to start. This isn't a surprise after Jones wasn't himself last week. Ultimately, the Giants probably feel it's smarter to play McCoy than Jones at clearly less than 100% while hoping Jones can get closer to full strength for a potential playoff berth.
Daniel Jones (ankle/hamstring) is questionable for Week 15.
Fantasy owners planning to use Jones this week are in a difficult spot with the Giants playing on Sunday night, but keep in mind that even if he starts, the second-year quarterback might be in danger of being pulled again—and he certainly wouldn't be 100%. If Jones is out, Colt McCoy will be under center against the team that drafted him back in 2010.
Daniel Jones is dealing with an ankle injury, according to head coach Joe Judge.
Jones—who entered Week 14 with a hamstring issue—also picked up an ankle injury in the first half, so he's in doubt for Sunday night's game against the Browns after clearly not being himself last week. If the second-year quarterback doesn't play, Colt McCoy would draw the start as he hopes to pick up another upset victory after beating the Seahawks a couple of weeks ago.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) will start tomorrow, according to multiple reports.
This was expected after Jones logged a full practice yesterday, and he'll only miss one game due to his hamstring injury suffered a couple of Sundays ago. With the Giants kicking off in the late-afternoon window tomorrow, you should now be able to comfortable place Jones in your lineup for Week 14.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) is officially questionable for Sunday.
Jones is reportedly expected to play in the Week 14 contest versus the Cardinals, and he was a full participant in today's practice, which is a great sign; but the Giants are opting to call him questionable—and the team might ultimately decide to hold out their franchise quarterback if they don't think he's ready to play on Sunday. New York plays at 1:00 PM ET, so Jones' status will be known on Sunday morning.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 14.
ESPN's Jordan Raanan says Jones will have to convince Giants head coach Joe Judge that he can play on Sunday, but that he is expected back after missing last week with the hamstring issue. This is great news for the contending Giants after getting another win to move to 5-7 and remain in first place in the NFC East. Expect Jones to be somewhat limited in practice throughout the week, and we'll let you know how he's listed on the final Week 14 injury report when it's released on Friday.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 13.
This was expected with Jones listed as doubtful entering the weekend. Colt McCoy will start against the Seahawks, and the hope is that Jones isn’t facing a lengthy absence.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 13.
The Giants are giving Jones a slight change to play against the Seahawks on Sunday, but it's not likely. Colt McCoy is set to start for a Giants team looking to keep pace in the struggling NFC East.
Daniel Jones' hamstring injury is considered minor.
While Jones did not suffer a major hamstring injury, the expectation is that he might miss a game or two with the issue. Expect the Giants to let Jones practice on a limited basis throughout the week before seeing where he's at when the final Week 13 injury report is released on Friday.
Daniel Jones (hamstring) is out for the Giants.
Jones injured his hamstring, tried to stretch out a bit, and re-entered the game briefly; but after testing it, he's now out of the game with Colt McCoy under center for the Giants. It seems unlikely that Jones will return, but we'll let you know if anything changes. Before leaving, Jones was 16/27 for 213 yards along with six carries for 19 yards in the Week 12 matchup versus the Bengals.
Projections for the 2020 season are now out.
With most of the key moves made during the NFL offseason complete, our initial fantasy projections for this year have been uploaded. There will be changes and tweaks in the months leading up to the start of the 2020 season, but Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is among the highlights, as we project him to record over 4,000 yards and 30 total touchdowns in his second NFL season. You can access full projections for over 200 players via Fantasy Consigliere.
Daniel Jones lights it up in return to the lineup.
After missing the previous two games with a high-ankle sprain, Jones returned on-fire versus the Redskins, going 28/42 for 352 yards and five touchdowns while adding three carries for 12 yards on the ground. Jones is the first rookie in NFL history to have three games of at least four touchdowns and no interceptions, and he joins Matthew Stafford as the only rookie since 1950 with at least 300 passing yards and five passing touchdowns in a game. Jones didn't put up amazing, eye-popping numbers at Duke, but his skills are obviously translating well to the next level despite the crazy criticism surrounding his selection. To conclude his rookie year, Jones will now look to upset the Eagles to potentially kick them out of the playoffs next week.
Daniel Jones will officially start in Week 16.
This has been expected all week, and now it’s official. Jones will look to string together a couple of wins to conclude his rookie year, but ideally you’ll have a stronger fantasy option in championship matchups.
Daniel Jones (ankle) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
Jones is set to return to the lineup after missing the last two games with a high-ankle sprain. This sends Eli Manning back to the bench and likely ends the two-time Super Bowl champions' Giants career with a home victory, but now Jones will look to get valuable game reps over the final two games of this season ahead of his first full offseason as an NFL quarterback.
Daniel Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.
This isn't a surprise, as the Giants are not going rush their young franchise quarterback back into action. Eli Manning will make his second consecutive start, and this Sunday against the Dolphins could be the two-time Super Bowl MVP's final home start for the Giants.
Daniel Jones (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
The final Week 15 injury report will be released tomorrow, and the Giants figure to make a decision on their starting quarterback ahead of the weekend. Eli Manning is the favorite to start on Sunday against the Dolphins with Jones at less than 100%.
Daniel Jones (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
Jones appears to have a shot to return this Sunday against the Dolphins, but the Giants are going to be cautious with their young franchise quarterback. Ideally, Jones will get up to a full practice tomorrow.
Daniel Jones (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 14.
This has been expected all week after Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said it was very unlikely the rookie quarterback would play on Monday night after suffering a high-ankle sprain last week against the Packers. This is just another bump in what's been a difficult rookie season that will help the promising franchise quarterback grow moving forward.
Daniel Jones (ankle) is in a walking boot.
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur says Jones has a mild high-ankle sprain and is not expected to start on Monday night against the Eagles. We'll let you know if anything changes when the final Week 14 injury report is released on Saturday, but two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning is fully expected to be under center for the Giants in Philadelphia.
Daniel Jones leads Giants' comeback win in first career start.
Down 28-10 to begin the second half, Jones calmly led the Giants back to a 32-31 victory over the Buccaneers, with the game-winning score coming on a fourth-down scramble where he went untouched up the middle with under two minutes remaining. Overall, Jones was 22/36 for 336 yards and two passing touchdowns along with four carries for 28 yards and two rushing touchdowns. Star running back Saquon Barkley left the game in the second quarter, and the underrated Tampa Bay defense did not play a bad game, but Jones was simply outstanding in his first NFL start. This was just start No. 1 of what should be a long career, but it's looking like a lot of know-it-alls (on television, radio, and Twitter) that laughed at the Giants for taking Jones sixth overall are going to have to eat their words (or just delete their tweets and act like they knew Jones would be good all along, which would be the norm for hot-takers and self-proclaimed geniuses). Accounting for Jones' rushing ability, the rookie should at least be a solid fantasy QB2 this season, but it won't be a big surprise if he's a QB1. Jones' presence in the lineup looks like a boost for skill position players like Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram, both of whom hit 100 yards receiving in the Week 3 win.
The Giants have named Daniel Jones their starting quarterback.
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur hinted yesterday that this might happen, and the team isn't wasting much time trying to make a switch as they sit at 0-2 after two weeks. Jones, the sixth overall pick in this year's draft, showed major flashes in the preseason, and he's a pro-ready player that should be able to immediately operate the offense at a high level. Partly because the Giants are struggling at receiver, Jones isn't a highly recommended fantasy pickup at the moment; but he's worth taking a look at as a waiver wire pickup to stash and hope it leads to some magic in 2019. It's possible Jones entering the lineup gives the team a spark, which would boost the fantasy value of Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram. Jones will make his first start this Sunday against the Buccaneers. Meanwhile, two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning was already benched briefly in 2017, but now it's possible he's played his last snap for the Giants.
The Giants have selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Many draft "experts" had Jones as the fourth quarterback at best and well outside the first round in draft rankings, but he was clearly held in much higher regard by NFL teams. The experienced Duke quarterback played under David Cutcliffe, who coached Eli Manning at Ole Miss (as well as Peyton Manning at Tennessee), and he has a similar personality to the two-time Super Bowl winner. Jones will now get to sit behind Eli for a year or two before eventually taking over, so he's not on the redraft radar in fantasy leagues for 2019—he's a strong hold in dynasty leagues, though. Read our full scouting report on Jones in the link below, but Jones is a very smart quarterback that goes through his progressions and has plus athleticism with the ability to run RPOs and designed quarterback runs.
