Daniel Jones

Current ADP: 86.4 (QB13)

When the New York Giants took Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, fans of the team weren’t fond of the decision from GM Dave Gettleman. It’s safe to say Jones exceeded expectations as a rookie after replacing Eli Manning early in the 2019 season.

The Duke product would complete 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions for the Giants last season. He would also prove to have a fumbling problem, fumbling the ball a whopping 18 times. After making 12 starts in 2019, he would conclude the season as the 23rd highest-scoring quarterback in fantasy football.

Entering year two, Jones is going to have a new head coach in Joe Judge and a new offensive coordinator in Jason Garrett. Even though it remains to be seen how he performs in Garrett’s system, plenty of people have lofty expectations for Jones. The second-year quarterback currently holds an ADP of 86.4 and is the 13th quarterback taken in most drafts.

For Jones to have value at his current ADP, he’d have to severely improve with his turnover woes and New York’s revamped offensive line would need to perform drastically better than last year’s group. You might as well take Baker Mayfield, Stafford, or Jared Goff if you’re looking for a quarterback that warrants some risk in the mid-to-late rounds.
