Daniel Jones
Daniel Jones, Tyrod Taylor to IR; 3rd String Tommy DeVito Next Up

Daniel Jones suffered a torn ACL in the Giants week 9 loss to the Raiders.

Daniel Jones tore his ACL on a non-contact injury and will miss the remainder of the 2023 season. It was a disastrous year for Jones and the Giants who weren’t able to continue their success from last season. He finished as the QB24 or worse in every game he played but one this season, and was No.28 in fantasy points per game as well.

 

With Jones out for the season and Tyrod Taylor placed on Injured Reserve, it will be Tommy DeVito taking over at quarterback for the foreseeable future. While he settled in later in the game and threw his first touchdown pass, the offense was a mess. No Giants pass catchers will have fantasy value as a result. Saquon Barkley can be locked in lineups due to volume, but the upside will be limited in an offense that won’t generate very many scoring opportunities.

 

More concerning for Jones is his future as the Giants’ starting quarterback is in serious doubt. There isn’t a team in the NFL playing worse football than the New York Giants at the moment. They will be in position to take one of the best quarterbacks in next years’ draft class, which may be tough for them to pass up. However, Jones does carry a near $70 million cap hit next season. Unless a trade happens he will certainly be in New York again in 2024 so the Giants’ draft position will have a huge impact on his future fantasy value.
