New York Giants QB Daniel Jones had shown solid growth with his play and leadership over the last year, according to head coach Joe Judge.
Huddle Up: Jones struggled at times last season but will have Saquon Barkley back from injury and will have Kenny Golladay to throw to as well. He could be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and likely will not be a starting option most weeks.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was pressured on 30.3 percent of his drop-backs in 2020 - the highest percentage for any quarterback with at least 350 pass attempts - per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: Any quarterback facing pressure on almost a third of his drop-backs is far from ideal. Some of the blame falls on the offensive line and game script, but Pro Football Focus notes that Jones had an average of 2.71 seconds to throw - more than what most quarterbacks get. Thus, some of the blame falls on Jones for failing to unload the ball more quickly. It also speaks to how important Saquon Barkley is to the offense. It shouldn't come as a surprise if Jones bounces back and emerges as a quality fantasy QB2 this season.

Huddle Up: Jones struggled last season but will have Barkley healthy this season and a new No. 1 receiver in Golladay. He still struggles with turnovers but could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in leagues.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has 39 turnovers, 22 interceptions and 17 lost fumbles, in 27 career games.
Huddle Up: The Giants added some offensive weapons this offseason, but Jones will have to improve his accuracy and cut down on his turnovers in order to take advantage of the upgrades. He remains a risky QB2.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones will spend this week working out in Arizona with some of the team's offensive weapons and linemen.
Huddle Up: Last year was a lost year on the field with an abundance of injuries around Jones. His fantasy stock will depend on the health around him, particularly with Saquon Barkley. Jones will be a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 option.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was off target on 16.8 percent of his throws in 2020, the ninth-worst mark among qualified players.
Huddle Up: The Giants have provided Jones with some additional firepower this offseason, but if he can't improve his accuracy and cut down on his turnovers, his production won't change much. He is still no more than a risky QB2 heading into 2021.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones' touchdown percentage of 2.5 was the lowest among quarterbacks with at least 400 attempts in 2020, and he became just the 11th quarterback in NFL history to have 11 or fewer touchdown passes with at least 400 pass attempts.
Huddle Up: Jones figures to open 2021 as the starter for the Giants, but between his struggles with turnovers and lack of production, he's a fringe QB2, at best.
