Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 228 yards and 1 TD in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys. It marked his 2nd-largest yardage total of the year but just 6.5 yards per pass attempt. Jones targeted 3 different teammates 6 times apiece. WR Richie James caught a team-high 5 passes for 41 yards and the lone TD. Darius Slayton caught 3 balls for 63 yards, with a 44-yard 1st-quarter snag delivering most of that. RB Saquon Barkley was the other 6-target Giant. Week 13 holds a pass-funnel matchup with Washington.

Giants QB Daniel Jones tossed 2 INTs in Sunday's loss to the Lions. His team trailed 17-6 by halftime and then 24-6 before the middle of the 3rd quarter, which helped drive up passing volume and boost Jones' fantasy numbers. He completed 27 of 44 passes for 341 yards, Jones' 1st game of 300 yards this year and just his 3rd with 200+. Jones threw just 1 TD pass (to WR Richie James) but added 50 yards and a TD on the ground. Jones entered Sunday night as the #2 fantasy QB for the week. Week 12 holds a challenging matchup with the Cowboys.

The Giants didn't ask QB Daniel Jones to do too much in Sunday's win over the Texans. They dropped him back just 23 times vs. 44 team rushing attempts. Jones took 3 sacks but went 13 of 17 passing for 197 yards (11.6 per attempt) and 2 TDs. He found WR Darius Slayton for a 54-yard score in the 3rd quarter and TE Lawrence Cager for a 9-yard TD. Jones added 24 rushing yards on 5 attempts. He's had just 1 other game of fewer than 21 pass attempts all season and had thrown 27+ passes in 4 straight before the Houston game. Expect a rebound in passing volume, though Week 11 holds another positive rushing matchup with Detroit. Slayton (3-95-1) and TE Tanner Hudson (3-24) were the only Giants to catch more than 2 balls vs. the Texans.

Daniel Jones went 17-of-31 (54.8%) passing for 176 yards and 0 TDs in Sunday's loss at Seattle. He added just 20 yards on 6 rushes in a game where the Giants couldn't get anything going against a surging defense. Jones took 5 sacks, the 3rd time this year he has reached that number. He did avoid turning the ball over, though, his 5th such game among 8 this season. WR Darius Slayton led the receivers in targets (6), receptions (5) and yards (66). TE Tanner Hudson (3-58 on 5 targets) was the only other Giant to eclipse 15 yards. WR Wan'Dale Robinson managed just 2 receptions for 15 yards on 3 targets. The Giants get their bye in Week 9.

Giants QB Daniel Jones ran for 107 yards and a TD in Sunday's win at Jacksonville. He added 202 yards and a TD passing and went without a turnover for the 4th time in 7 games. Jones will be worth a look in many fantasy football leagues over the next 3 games. The Giants will visit Seattle next week, with home dates vs. Houston and Detroit following a Week 9 bye.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for just 173 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He tossed TD passes to rookies TE Daniel Bellinger and WR Wan'Dale Robinson. Bellinger led the team with 5 targets catching all of them for 38 yards. Robinson tied Marcus Johnson for 2nd on the team with 4 looks. He caught 3 for 37 yards. RB Saquon Barkley was the only other Giant with more than 2 receptions.

Giants QB Daniel Jones didn't appear to have any issues with his sprained ankle in Sunday's win over the Packers. He completed 21 of 27 passes for 217 yards -- a season high -- with no TDs or INTs. He also rushed for 37 yards on 10 attempts. Jones gets a home date with the Ravens in Week 6.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) isn't listed on the final injury report and will start Sunday morning's game vs. the Packers. Jones put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday and a full workout on Friday. It's still tough to believe that he'll have his usual mobility this weekend, which takes away most of whatever fantasy appeal Jones has. QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is out for Week 5, leaving QB Davis Webb as the backup.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The New York media thought he looked better than expected in the open portion of practice. It looks like Jones is trending toward being available for Sunday morning's game vs. the Packers. QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is "feeling a little bit better today," HC Brian Daboll said Monday. Daboll confirmed that Jones has a sprained ankle but wouldn't say if it's a high or low sprain. "We'll just see how that goes," Daboll added. With QB Tyrod Taylor in the concussion protocol, it's possible that the Giants are forced to start QB Davis Webb vs. the Packers in London on Sunday.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is considered "day to day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones was able to return to that game -- after QB Tyrod Taylor left with a concussion -- and Rapoport says there's "optimism" Jones will be available for Week 5.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor left Sunday's win over the Bears with a concussion. He had entered the game after Daniel Jones sprained his left ankle. Jones took back over after Taylor left. We'll see about the health of both players leading up to a Week 5 visit to Green Bay.

Giants QB Daniel Jones injured his left ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears. QB Tyrod Taylor has replaced him. We'll update Jones' status when we know more.

Update: Jones returned to the game -- with his ankle heavily taped -- after Taylor left for a concussion check.

Giants QB Daniel Jones revealed that he underwent a "non-football-related procedure" on his neck this offseason. "I saw there was something about it," Jones added. "It was completely unrelated, but I feel good. Neck is great." Jones, of course, missed the final 6 games of last season with a disc injury in his neck. Whether this procedure was related to that injury or not, it's worth remembering that Giants insider Dan Schneier told us on the Draft Sharks podcast that Jones appears to have lost velocity on his throws this summer. It'll be something to watch closely early this season. Jones is no more than a risk/reward QB2 in fantasy drafts.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Tuesday morning that QB Tyrod Taylor "probably will get snaps at some point this preseason with the first team offense," according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Daboll followed that by saying the team has "full confidence" in QB Daniel Jones. But this seems like more than a just in case of injury scenario. Reports on Jones out of training camp haven't been good. We have to at least consider it possible that he gets yanked for Taylor at some point this season if the struggles spill over into the real games.

Giants QB Daniel Jones saw his 1st game action Thursday night since a November neck injury ended his 2021 season. “It felt good to get out there and it was just like it used to be,” Jones said afterward, according to ProFootballTalk. “I didn’t think a whole lot about the neck or anything like that. I felt good and it was just football.” Jones said he thought the offense got off to a good start. The QB went 6-of-10 for 69 yards over 2 series before leaving. The Giants came away with 1 FG over that span. Jones also ran once for 6 yards. He was going without Kadarius Toney, who figure to be the top WR come Week 1. We'll keep evaluating Jones as the regular season approaches.
