News: 4 days agoJones completed 25 of 31 passes for 200 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Giants' 20-20 tie with the Commanders on Sunday. He also rushed 12 times for 71 yards and lost a fumble.
Spin: Jones was able to connect with Darius Slayton for a 55-yard strike, but he otherwise primarily worked the short-to-mid-range passing windows throughout the afternoon, leading to a yardage total that is especially modest when considering the game went a full five quarters. Jones hit Isaiah Hodgins from six yards out for his one touchdown early in the third quarter, and although the Giants were forced to punt on six consecutive possessions, including the first two of overtime, thereafter, he did notch a pair of key completions to Richie James (14 yards) and Daniel Bellinger (three yards) to put Graham Gano in position to attempt a would-be game-winning 58-yard field goal, which he missed. Jones next faces the daunting Eagles secondary in a Week 14 home matchup.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jones finally appeared to be on the verge of a breakout last season, opening 2021 with at least 21 fantasy points in three of his first four games. The wheels fell off from there, as he failed to produce another top-12 outing before missing the final six games due to injury. Durability is a real concern, as he's missed at least two games during each of his three NFL seasons. Jones has yet to deliver a top-20 fantasy campaign, but there is a sliver of hope here after New York hired Brian Daboll as head coach. Also, much like Daboll's previous QB, Josh Allen, Jones' legs are an asset; he ranks sixth at the position with 1,000 rushing yards since 2019. Jones is worth a look only as a QB2 toward the end of your draft.
