2024 RTSports Outlook

Jones had injury issues last season and tore his ACL in Week 9, ending his season. He was not great before the injury, having fewer than 200 passing yards in four of six games. He had one big showing last year, throwing for 321 yards while scoring three touchdowns against the Cardinals in Week 2. He did little outside of the huge game. Jones remains the starter in New York, but this might be a make-or-break year for him. He isn't even sure if he will be ready for Week 1, returning from a major knee injury. Jones seems to have all the tools to be a top NFL quarterback. Jones is a tall quarterback with a strong arm and quick release. He can be a very accurate passer, especially on shorter throws. Jones tries to force some throws but isn't afraid to take chances down the field. He also uses his legs well, rushing for more than 700 yards in 2022. Jones makes too many mistakes, and injuries have been an issue throughout his career. 

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Jones can be a help to fantasy teams, but get a good option to pair with him come draft day. He is coming off a major injury and has been erratic to date. The potential is there for good things, especially if the Giants get some more talent around him offensively. If all goes well, he can get around 3,500-passing yards, 25 total scores and 600-rushing yards.

RotoBaller's Outlook

In his time as the quarterback for the New York Giants,Daniel Jones(knee) has been the subject of much speculation. After finishing the 2022 season as the QB9 for fantasy -; if only for his rushing statistics -; some believed Jones was finally here to stay as the Giants franchise quarterback. A year later, that notion came crumbling back to Earth. Jones disappointed Giants fans and fantasy managers when he was on the field in 2023, then had his season derailed after suffering a Grade 3 ACL tear in Week 9 against the Raiders. He expects to be ready for training camp, but it's hard to get excited about a mobile QB who relies mainly on his rushing prowess, coming off a significant injury. The Giants also signed quarterback Drew Lock to a contract to be the team's backup this offseason. Lock could be the team's starting quarterback if Jones is not ready by Week 1. The subtraction of star running backSaquon Barkleymakes this offense even less enticing -; even when we consider the addition ofMalik Nabers, superstar wideout from LSU, to a corps that includesDarius Slayton,Wan'Dale Robinson, andJalin Hyatt. Jones serves only as a consideration in best ball and superflex drafts, the latter of which he's priced as QB30 -; #125 overall and QB32 in RotoBaller's ranks.

Player Notes
Jun 12 12:00pm ET

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) told reporters on Tuesday that he expects to be ready for the first day of training camp next month, and his previously torn right ACL feels "really good." The 27-year-old suffered the major injury in the Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, meaning he will have had over seven months to recover when training camp begins. Jones is heading into a make-or-break year after throwing just two touchdowns and six interceptions in six games last season. Although he has been disappointing in his NFL career thus far, he could prove to be a value at his current cost in Superflex drafts. The former Duke Blue Devil is going around the QB29 spot, and he can easily push for low-end QB2 production if his rushing upside isn't zapped by his knee injury. He rushed for 708 yards and seven touchdowns in his last full season (2022). If Jones has another disastrous campaign, the G-Men will likely replace him in the 2025 NFL Draft.

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said he doesn't have any doubt that he'll be ready for Week 1 of the 2024 regular season to face the Minnesota Vikings. The expectation all along has been that Jones will be ready to go for the start of the new season after tearing the ACL in his right knee in Week 9 of 2023. The 26-year-old also missed a game with a neck injury, but that issue is apparently behind him as well. The former first-rounder needs to show progress this year if he wants to remain the team's starting QB beyond 2024, despite signing a four-year, $160 million deal last offseason. Before getting hurt last year, Jones threw for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions, but he didn't have much of a chance behind a terrible offensive line. Jones has already been taking part in OTAs and should have full clearance by training camp. At best, Jones is a No. 2 fantasy QB in superflex leagues for his rushing ability.

The New York Giants said that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) took part in 7-on-7 drills during organized team activities on Monday. Jones and the team have said that the expectation is that he'll be fully cleared for the start of training camp this summer after he tore his ACL in November of last year. In addition to his season-ending knee injury last year, Jones also missed some time with a neck injury that is apparently a thing of the past. The 26-year-old former first-rounder didn't have much of a chance behind the team's atrocious offensive line in 2023, but he's going to need to show more in 2024 while coming off a major injury after signing a four-year, $160 million deal last offseason. In his six starts last year, Jones threw for 909 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions. His rushing upside keeps him relevant as a QB2 in fantasy, but that could be negatively affected by his knee injury.

The New York Giants will debut on the HBO show Hard Knocks: Offseason in 2024 in their 100th season in the NFL. The show will feature the Giants for the first time since the series' debut in 2001 as the four-time Super Bowl-winning franchise prepares for its 100th season. It will be the first iteration of Hard Knocks to document the NFL offseason, chronicling the G-Men's moves from January to July. The five-episode season will debut on Tuesday, July 2. Hard Knocks has been in New York twice before with the Jets in 2010 and 2023 and has also followed the Dallas Cowboys three different times (2002, 2008, 2021). In New York, this will be their first year without running back Saquon Barkley while quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) tries to come back from a torn ACL in 2023. New York took receiver Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick in this year's draft.

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said he's been cutting and "doing everything" as he rehabs from a torn right ACL. His plan remains to be ready for training camp this summer. In addition to a torn ACL, Jones missed time with a neck injury and ended up starting just six games after having a career year in 2022. In his six starts, Jones didn't have much of a chance behind a sieve-like offensive line, throwing for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. The 2024 season could be a make-or-break year for the 26-year-old former first-round pick, although the G-Men didn't take another QB in this year's draft. Jones now has an elite wideout to work with in Malik Nabers, but he also lost do-it-all running back Saquon Barkley to free agency. Jones is an injury question mark with a low floor and ceiling as a QB2 in fantasy.

Dynasty | The New York Giants drafted LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Dynasty Analysis: The Giants reportedly flirted with many options in the draft (including maneuvering for a quarterback) but ended up grabbing Nabers with the sixth overall pick. It's hard to blame them as Nabers could honestly be the best receiver in this class. While Daniel Jones' health and overall play is still in question, Nabers should enter the season as the top pass catcher for the Giants and makes for an easy top-three pick in conventional dynasty rookie drafts this off-season.

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee), who is returning from a torn ACL that he suffered in 2023, told reporters on Monday that the plan is for him to be fully cleared for training camp this summer. Jones has not had any setbacks since undergoing surgery on Nov. 22 to fix his right ACL tear. The 26-year-old also said the neck injury he dealt with last year before hurting his knee is in the rearview mirror. Despite the fact that the Giants are considering drafting another QB at the end of this month, they continue to say that Jones will be the unquestioned starter under center when he returns from his knee injury. Although Jones had a career year in 2022, plenty of questions remain as to whether he can repeat that performance, especially now that running back Saquon Barkley is no longer in town. Consider him a low-upside QB2 with more question marks coming off a serious knee injury.

Washington quarterback Michael Penix has a top-30 visit with the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday, according to a source. The Raiders currently hold the 13th overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft and are looking to upgrade at the position through the draft over second-year signal-caller Aidan O'Connell. The Minnesota Vikings flew out their whole staff for a private workout with Penix in Seattle as well, including head coach Kevin O'Connell and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah. Penix's impressive pro day has made him a candidate to sneak into the first 10 picks of this year's draft. In addition to the Vikings and Raiders, the New York Giants, who want some insurance for Daniel Jones (knee), are scheduled to meet with Penix.

While New York Giants president and CEO John Mara still has faith in quarterback Daniel Jones (knee), he told reporters on Monday at the NFL meetings that he wouldn't stop general manager Joe Schoen from taking a quarterback in the upcoming draft. "I think the Daniel (Jones) we saw in 2022 is the real deal. I still have all the confidence in the world in him. Yes, I think we all expect him to be the starter in 2024," Mara said. Jones is no lock to be ready for Week 1 in 2024 after tearing his ACL last year, but the Giants continue to stay that when he's healthy, he'll be the team's starter under center. The G-Men aren't giving up on the former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke, but 2024 might be his make-or-break season. Drafting a QB this year would give the Giants some insurance at the position.

Mar 23 1:10pm ET

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said there's no guarantee that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) will be ready for Week 1, but Daboll said "when he gets back, he'll be the guy." The Giants are sticking with Jones as their starter, but he's coming off a torn right ACL in 2023 and might not be ready to go for the start of the 2024 season this fall. The 26-year-old had a career year in Daboll's first season as head coach in 2022, but Jones disappointed behind a terrible offensive line last year before blowing his knee out. Jones resumed throwing in early February and could take part in 7-on-7 drills this spring, but it appears now there's a chance that Drew Lock could be under center for the G-Men in Week 1. Jones is only one year into his four-year, $160 million extension and the Giants could be forced to move on if he doesn't improve in 2024.

The New York Giants signed free-agent offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor to a two-year, $14 million deal on Monday. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder spent the last three seasons with the Raiders, playing under new Giants offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo the last two years. The 29-year-old gave up just six sacks in 905 offensive snaps for the Raiders last year in all 17 games, according to Pro Football Focus. He was originally a fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 and also played two years with the New England Patriots before joining the Raiders. The Giants also signed guard Jon Runyan on Monday, so they are clearly looking to upgrade what was a terrible offensive line in 2023. Quarterback Daniel Jones was sacked 30 times last year before tearing the ACL in his knee in November. Eluemunor will give New York solid depth at the tackle spots behind Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal.

The New York Giants have so many offseason needs in 2024, but The Athletic's Charlotte Carroll thinks their most pressing need is at offensive line, following a season in which the Giants allowed the second-most sacks (85) in NFL history. Their atrocious offensive line is one of the reasons quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) was unable to stay healthy. Without a healthy and successful offensive line, Jones and the rest of New York's offense won't have much of a chance. The G-Men are going to need to find upgrades along their offensive line in both free agency and the upcoming NFL draft in free agency. New York started its offensive-line renovations this offseason by cutting guard Mark Glowinski this week.

Feb 28 12:40am ET

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen said that quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) started stationary throwing two weeks ago, and the team thinks he could do 7-on-7 work this spring. Jones is currently on track to be ready for the start of training camp this summer. "I have faith in Daniel (Jones) as our starting quarterback," Schoen said. Despite Jones tearing his ACL last year, the Giants continue to put their faith in him as their starter going into the 2024 season, although they won't hesitate to add a QB in the upcoming NFL draft if the situation presents itself. The 27-year-old signed a four-year, $160 million extension before the 2023 season looked pretty bad behind an atrocious offensive line last season before his injury. If Jones struggles again early in 2024, the Giants could be looking to move on from him sooner than later.

If the situation presents itself in this year's NFL draft, the New York Giants would be open to pulling a trigger on a quarterback, according to ESPN New York's Jordan Raanan. Current starting QB Daniel Jones (knee), who was the sixth overall pick in 2019, has rarely been healthy in his five seasons and is rehabbing from a torn ACL this offseason. If head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen aren't comfortable putting all their chips on the table with Jones as the long-term future at the position, they could look to this year's draft to find Jones' potential replacement. The G-Men have the sixth overall pick and two second-round selections in which they could use to take a rookie signal-caller. It doesn't sound like the Giants have much confidence in Jones moving forward, and neither should fantasy managers.

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said his rehab from a torn right ACL is "going well." Jones tore his ACL on Nov. 5 and missed the rest of the year. "I'm making progress. I'm three months into it, and I've started running on the anti-gravity treadmill. It's going well," Jones said. The 26-year-old former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke played in just six games in 2023 after signing a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason. The Giants are hoping he'll stay healthy in 2024 and bounce back while costing $47 million against the salary cap. They continue to say that they are committed to him as their starter under center, but if he disappoints again in 2024, they could decide to move on quickly. Jones' rushing ability helps his fantasy cause, but overall he has a low fantasy ceiling as a QB2.

Jan 30 7:00pm ET

New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen reiterated on Tuesday that the plan is for quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) to be the starter entering training camp this summer. However, Schoen didn't rule out the team drafting another quarterback this year -- they have the sixth overall pick in the first round. The Giants signed Jones to a four-year, $160 million extension last offseason but he played in just six games in 2023 before suffering a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee. The 26-year-old wasn't good in his six games, either, going 108-for-160 for 909 yards (5.7 yards per attempt), two touchdowns and six interceptions. In Jones' defense, the Giants' offensive line was among the worst in the league. Barring a setback, Jones should be ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, but at best, he'll be a QB2 for fantasy managers with limited upside coming off a major injury.

Jan 23 8:30pm ET

Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he still believes in current Giants QB Daniel Hudson as the team's starter moving forward. "Obviously with the injuries, it's not fun, but I know he's determined. I know he wants to be in New York. It's not an easy place to play but he has the mindset. He has the mentality. I know he'll do everything possible to get back and to get back to playing at a high level," Manning said. Jones tore his ACL, among other injuries, and ended up playing in just six games in 2023, going 1-5 with two touchdowns and six interceptions. It came after signing a four-year, $160 million contract last offseason following a 3,000-yard season and a playoff appearance. It's nice that Manning has faith in the 26-year-old signal-caller, but for fantasy purposes, Jones should probably only be rostered in two-QB leagues to begin next season.

Jan 8 10:10am ET

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said he's continuing to rehab his knee and plans to be ready to play by the start of training camp. Jones tore his ACL in early November, ending his season. Giants' GM Joe Schoen noted that the team plans to continue to build around Jones, but understands that he may not be ready to play in Week 1. The Giants own the sixth-overall pick in the NFL Draft and may use that asset to select another franchise quarterback.
