|2021 is a make-it-or-break-it year for the former first-round pick from Duke after a disappointing injury-riddled sophomore campaign in which Jones ranked 31st at the position in fantasy points per game.
Jones has all of the skill weapons he needs to succeed, with the addition of big-money WR Kenny Golladay and the drafting of Kadarius Toney in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft. The question is can the offensive line hold up, and can Jones stay healthy.
From a fantasy perspective, there is a lot to like for a guy who threw 24 touchdowns in just 13 games as a rookie while adding an impressive 702 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in his first 27 NFL games. Jones rushed for more yards than Josh Allen last season, despite the fact that he was limited with leg injuries and played in just 14 games.
Turnovers continue to be an issue for Jones, with six lost fumbles and ten interceptions in 14 games in 2020. While those numbers are alarming, Kirk Cousins and Russell Wilson had more turnovers (albeit in two more games).
As our No.20 ranked QB, Jones is an upside streaming option and someone you can target in super-flex leagues as a player with boom or bust value. If he returns to his rookie form and blossoms with Golladay and Toney, Jones could be a great value in drafts. If he continues to be limited with injuries and a poor TD rate, he could be benched mid-season.
| Barkley week-to-week with sprained ankle|
Giants ravaged by injuries in Week 5

Saquon Barkley - Ankle “sprain.” Likely couple weeks. More tests Monday.
Kenny Golladay - Hyperextended knee. MRI Monday.
Daniel Jones - Concussion. “In good spirits” after game. Flew home w/team. See how it goes this week. Tough dude. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Giants were ravaged by injuries in Week 5 that saw Barkley and Jones get carted off. Devontae Booker filled in for Barkley and would be the presumed starter at running back next week against the Rams. He'll be a hot pickup on the waiver wire. Rookie Kadarius Toney saw 15 targets as he became the focal point of the passing game once Golladay left.
