Shark Bites

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.

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.

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.
