"Something's up with the velocity on [Daniel Jones'] throws," Giants insider Dan Schneier told us on the latest Draft Sharks podcast. "Ball placement is something that's been waning for him since his rookie season ... it seems to be only getting worse. The velocity is a weird thing." Schneier wonders if the dip in velocity is related to the neck injury that Jones suffered last year. Schneier also notes that Jones has seemed to struggle with HC Brian Daboll's offense and with getting on the same page as his receivers so far in camp. There's plenty of time for that stuff to get ironed out, but the arm strength note is concerning. Jones is cheap enough in fantasy drafts that you can keep taking shots on him. But we're less excited about his 2022 value now than we were before talking to Schneier.

SNY’s Connor Hughes expressed concern over the Giants’ pass protection. “The pass protection, ever since the Giants strapped on the pads, is becoming a problem, Hughes wrote. “The severity of which has the potential to derail any [Daniel] Jones evaluation.” HC Brian Daboll admitted that this unit still has “a long way to go,” adding that he believes “they’re moving in the right direction.” We’ll see how this unit looks in preseason action. But it’s worth noting that they’re going up against one of the game’s most aggressive DCs in practice (Wink Martindale). New York’s also breaking in several new starters — including rookie RT Evan Neal.

Per multiple sources, the Giants are declining the 5th year option on QB Daniel Jones. Such a move would have paid him over $22 million for the 2023 season. Jones carries some upside as a QB2 for this year, especially if the Giants invest in WR early in tonight's draft. New York picks 5th and 7th in Round 1.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan says "it seems likely" that the Giants will decline the 5th-year option on QB Daniel Jones' rookie contract when that decision comes up this May. Raanan works the Giants beat and surely has more insight into the team's thoughts on Jones than we do. But this reads like a guess/assumption on his part rather than a report. It's certainly fair to say that the early returns haven't been great, and exercising the option would guarantee Jones a little more than $20 million for 2023. That could be a particularly big number for a Giants team currently strapped for cap space. Fortunately, we'll get the answer to this question well before the coming season starts. And Jones remains in line to at least start for the Giants in 2022. Jones told Raanan this week that new HC Brian Daboll has sought the QB's input in designing the offense.

New Giants GM Joe Schoen threw his support behind QB Daniel Jones at his introductory press conference on Wednesday. "We'll build an offense around Daniel to accentuate what he does best," Schoen said. "I know he's a great kid ... The kid has physical ability. He's got arm strength, he's athletic, he can run. I'm really excited to work with Daniel." Jones has failed to show tangible improvement over his first 3 NFL seasons and missed the final 6 games of 2021 with a neck injury. We'll see when he's cleared from that injury -- and who Schoen and the Giants hire as HC and OC. But Jones can't be considered more than a low-end QB2 in early 2022 fantasy drafts.

The Giants fired HC Joe Judge. He becomes the 3rd straight Giants HC to last 2 seasons or fewer. Judge went 10-23 over the past 2 years but was strapped with a bad offensive line, an inconsistent QB and an oft-injured RB. GM Dave Gettleman is retiring, so it'll be a brand new regime in New York.

The Giants are expected to bring back HC Joe Judge and QB Daniel Jones for the 2022 season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a head scratcher considering that duo has had very little success. The Giants are 10-20 since Judge took over in 2020, while Jones' play has been consistently inconsistent since arriving as the 6th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. If the Giants indeed stick with these guys for 2022, it'll be tough to get excited about the offense for fantasy purposes.

Giants QB Daniel Jones will be shut down for the rest of the season with his neck injury, HC Joe Judge said Monday. Judge called the move "precautionary" and said this neck injury isn't expected to be a long-term issue for Jones. Some combination of QBs Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm will close out the season for the G-Men.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys. QB Mike Glennon will get another start, but QB Jake Fromm reportedly might mix in. It’s obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is not expected to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan. “Nothing is ruled out beyond that, so it is expected to remain a week-to-week evaluation,” Duggan added. QB Mike Glennon will get another start this weekend. He's completed just 50% of his passes and averaged a pathetic 4.7 yards per attempt over the past 2 weeks.

Giants HC Joe Judge said Sunday that QB Daniel Jones will visit a neck specialist on Monday and get another scan of the injury that has cost him the past 2 games, FOX's Shannon Spake reports. We'll see how much longer the strain will keep the Giants' starting QB out.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. QB Mike Glennon (concussion) is listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Friday. HC Joe Judge confirmed that Glennon is expected to be cleared for this weekend’s game. So New York won’t need to turn to QB Jake Fromm, but this is still a passing game to try to avoid.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, a source tells insider Ralph Vacchiano. QB Mike Glennon, meanwhile, is in the concussion protocol, making him iffy for Week 14. So it could be Jake Fromm under center for the G-Men. The 2020 5th-rounder was just signed off the Bills practice squad last week and has yet to attempt a regular-season NFL pass.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) will miss Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins, and his status beyond that is uncertain. "There's no indication of when he'll be cleared," insider Ralph Vacchiano reports. "At the moment, this is not considered a season-ending injury ... it could be days, it could be weeks with this kind of injury." QB Mike Glennon will start for the G-Men for however long Jones is out.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. He practiced this week but hasn't been cleared for contact, HC Joe Judge said. QB Mike Glennon will start in Jones' place on Sunday. He's a low-end QB2 but might be just a slight downgrade for the Giants offense.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He said he's preparing to start this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins but conceded that the medical staff has the final say. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that QB Mike Glennon is expected to draw the start against Miami. We'll see where this goes, but you should be avoiding the situation in 1-QB leagues.

Giants QB Daniel Jones strained his neck early in last week's game vs. the Eagles, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones played the rest of that one but is now considered "week to week" and is expected to miss at least 1 game, Pelissero adds. That sets QB Mike Glennon up to start Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. The 31-year-old went 16 of 25 for 196 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs in relief of Jones back in Week 5 vs. Dallas. He made 5 starts for the Jaguars last year, mustering just 6.0 yards per attempt with 7 TDs and 5 INTs. Glennon is a bottom-barrel QB2 and likely to be a downgrade for New York's offense.
