| Cam Newton has Lisfranc injury|
No timetable for return as Injury could keep Newton out indefinitely
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 24, 11:12 am
|Joe Person (@josephperson) on Twitter: "With Panthers QB Cam Newton out indefinitely with a Lisfranc injury, per sources, the job could be Kyle Allen's for a while." (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This is terrible news for Newton owners and good news for Kyle Allen -- who looked solid in Week 3. Newton could be out 4-8 weeks or more, if they shut him down again. Allen is a priority add if you need a QB and can't grab Daniel Jones -- and could even end up posting better numbers this season than the Giants new QB.
| Saquon expected to miss multiple weeks|
High ankle sprain

|The #Giants are expecting to be without star RB Saquon Barkley for the next several weeks because of his high-ankle sprain, source said. Not surprising given the nature of the injury and his presence with a walking boot and crutches on the sideline. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Wayne Gallman is presumably the next man up and will get matchups against Washington, Minnesota and the Patriots in the next three weeks. The Giants are likley to rely more on rookie QB Daniel Jones while Barkley is out making Gallman more of a Flex play in the coming weeks.
|Daniel Jones named the Giants starter|
Rookie QB gets the nod, Eli Manning benched
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 17, 11:15 am
|New York Giants (@Giants) on Twitter: "Daniel Jones has been named Giants starting QB" (Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This means Eli Manning can be safely dropped, if you were still holding onto some hope of a resurgence for the veteran QB. The official tweet from the Giants came with a big picture of Jones -- a dead ringer for a young Jim Carrey -- staring awkwardly into the camera in his press photo. The Giants putrid offensive line won't help Jones pile up big fantasy stats, but the weak defense should help from a yardage standpoint. Still -- Jones is likely going to turn the ball over a lot when he's not giving it to stud RB Saquon Barkley, so he's not worth adding in most formats.
|Daniel Jones signs rookie contract with Giants|
Eli Manning locked into starting job, no QB competition in camp
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 23, 12:00 am
|Ian Rapoport on Twitter: "Source: The #Giants and 1st round QB Daniel Jones have an agreement in principle on his rookie contract." (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Well, the beginning of the Daniel Jones Era has begun, but without any shred of competition planned for the starting gig. Eli Manning remains an unexciting QB2 option.
