Bottom Line

Jones' best quality is his rushing upside – and that’s in question following a 2023 ACL tear.

While the addition of WR Malik Nabers brings hope, Jones is best rostered as a superflex QB3.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Jones missed the final six games of the 2021 season with a neck injury. He missed three games with a neck issue in 2023.
  • His season ended shortly thereafter with a Week 9 ACL tear (right knee).
  • It’s a small sample, but prior to the injury, Jones’ play noticeably regressed off a career-best 2022.
    • Among 36 qualifiers, Jones ranked 34th in EPA per play, 32nd in success rate, 9th in completion rate, and 35th in sack rate.
    • His low average depth of target (6.8 yards) helped boost the completion rate.
  • Jones tallied 206 rushing yards in less than six full games.
    • He scrambled on 10.5% of his dropbacks -- second most in the 36-QB sample.
  • He wasn’t propped up by a strong supporting cast.
    • New York’s leading receivers included Darius Slayton and 12 games of Darren Waller.
    • The Giants’ O-line ranked 32nd in PFF pass blocking grade.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Jones returns for his third season alongside HC Brian Daboll and OC Mike Kafka.
    • Daboll is expected to take back play-calling duties from Kafka.
  • By all accounts, Jones' ACL rehab has gone smoothly.
    • He participated in OTAs/minicamp.
    • Jones expressed confidence he’ll be ready to play come Week 1.
  • New York’s O-line remains under the microscope.
    • Carmen Bricillo arrives as the eighth O-line coach over the past 10 years. He formerly coached the O-line in New England and Vegas.
    • The Giants are expected to trot out LT Andrew Thomas, LG Jermaine Eluemunor, C John Michael Schmitz, RG Jon Runyan, and RT Evan Neal.
    • Eluemunor and Runyan are the only holdovers, but they supply upgrades along the interior.
    • Note that the Giants allowed a ridiculous 85 sacks last season.
  • Round 1 WR Malik Nabers arrives to give this unit its most talented target since Odell Beckham.
    • The rest of the WR corps (Darius Slayton, Wan’Dale Robinson, Jalin Hyatt) looks pedestrian.
    • Darren Waller retired in June.
    • A Daniel Bellinger-Theo Johnson tandem will have a chance to replace him, but it’s likely a clear downgrade.
  • Jones is fully expected to start. But if he struggles, there’s a chance we see new backup Drew Lock.

Daniel Jones To Avoid PUP List

Giants QB Daniel Jones (knee) is not expected to land on the PUP list to begin training camp, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is working back from a right ACL tear suffered on November 5. He's on track to be ready for Week 1, barring a setback between now and then.

Giants HC Brian Daboll has been calling plays on offense so far this offseason, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. OC Mike Kafka handled those duties over the past two years. The team hasn't officially announced the change, but it looks like it'll be Daboll at the controls this season.

Dynasty Write-up
A poor supporting cast didn't stop Jones from improving alongside HC Brian Daboll and OC Mike Kafka in 2022. Unfortunately, his 2023 was derailed by a mid-season ACL tear. Jones is now considered iffy for Week 1 of next season. Note that he signed a new contract (4 years, $160 million) in 2023.
