Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants
Jones went into a Week 11 bye on a high note, with 308 passing yards and four touchdowns along with 20 rushing yards against the New York Jets. He has topped 300 yards with four touchdown passes in two of his last three games, and even with a tough matchup this week the rookie signal caller is on the fantasy radar.
In Week 12 Jones gets the Chicago Bears, who entered Week 11 in the top-10 of the league against quarterbacks, and Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers isn’t a lot better. But from Week 14-16 he gets the Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins, who entered Week 11 no better than middle of the pack against quarterbacks with the latter two the most favorable.
The prospect of garbage time passing numbers in some games and what he adds with his legs makes Jones a viable fantasy commodity. He’s no less than a serviceable option in two-quarterback leagues, with upside for more when the matchup dictates.
