Daniel Jones Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Giants added Florida WR Kadarius Toney with the 20th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Toney has just 1 season of experience as a full-time WR. He was a dual-threat QB in high school and spent his first 3 years at Florida splitting time between WR, RB and Wildcat QB. Toney broke out at WR this past season, though, leading the Gators with 70 catches and 984 receiving yards and finishing 2nd to TE Kyle Pitts with 10 TDs. He added another 161 yards and a score on 19 carries. Toney is a fun watch. He has elite start-stop and change-of-direction ability. And his combination of vision, burst, contact balance and leg drive make him 1 of the best after-catch receivers in this class. Toney flashes potential as a route runner but has a ways to go in that department. There are also durability and character concerns here. Toney missed 10 games at Florida with shoulder and shin injuries and was involved in 2 off-field incidents involving guns. As a pro, he projects as a slot receiver who can also add value on end arounds, jet sweeps, etc. We’ll see exactly how he fits in a WR corps alongside Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants QB Colt McCoy is "trending" toward starting against the Browns on Sunday night. "Team still has some work today so window still slightly open for Daniel Jones," Fowler adds. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but you should be avoiding Giants QBs in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring, ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Browns after a limited week of practice. Even if he gets the start, Jones can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups. QB Colt McCoy will play if Jones doesn’t.

Giants QB Daniel Jones sprained his ankle in the 2nd quarter of last week's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is also still dealing with a bum hamstring and is "in doubt" for Sunday night's game vs. the Browns, per Rapoport. Jones' absence would put Colt McCoy back under center for the G-Men. Hopefully you can avoid this passing game in fantasy lineups.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He got in a full practice on Friday, but it’s still unclear how close to 100% Jones will be for this one. He’s a risky QB2.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. HC Joe Judge said Friday that he's "fairly optimistic" Jones will play, but it's clear that he won't be at 100%. With decreased rushing upside, Jones is just a low-end QB2. His return would be good news for New York's pass-catchers, though.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports that the Giants expect QB Daniel Jones to play Sunday against the Cardinals, "barring a setback" with his injured hamstring. Jones will reportedly need to "pass through some checkpoints" this week, primarily including proving to HC Joe Judge that he's ready to play. There would be upside to his matchup against Arizona if he returns, and Jones should provide the offense with more upside than backup Colt McCoy. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram look like the only real starting options among pass-catchers. Jones' return could also help the scoring opportunities for RB Wayne Gallman.
