2019 Fantasy Outlook
A bit of a surprise pick at No. 6 overall in this year's draft, Jones figures to be Eli Manning's understudy this season in New York. The team's hoped-for quarterback of the future appears to have a ways to go after a college career at Duke that saw him struggle with accuracy - career 59.9 completion rate, including 60.5 percent last season - while producing just 6.4 YPA. But the athletic Jones certainly looks the part at 6-5, 221, and he was named MVP of the Senior Bowl, where Giants general manager Dave Gettleman fell in love with him. Manning doesn't appear to be going anywhere soon, which is better for Jones' development anyway. If Jones does take snaps this season, he'll have a lot help in the short passing game, throwing to Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate. With Odell Beckham Jr. out of the picture, the Giants have designed their offense to revolve around the running game and quick passes. Read Past Outlooks

Turns it over thrice in loss
QBNew York Giants
October 20, 2019
Jones completed 22 of 35 passes for 223 yards, a touchdown and an interception during Sunday's 27-21 loss to Arizona. He added 35 yards on four carries and fumbled the ball three times during the game, losing two.
ANALYSIS
A calamitous start to the game had the Cardinals leading 17-0 early in the second quarter before Jones dropped a 28-yard touchdown to Rhett Ellison in the middle of three defenders. Jones' rookie season has been dotted with impressive throws and some nice scrambling, but -- as one might expect from a rookie on a mediocre team -- he's struggled with turnovers and sacks. He's turned it over 12 times in six games and has absorbed 18 sacks, eight of them against the Cardinals. Saquon Barkley's gradual return to the flow of the game will undoubtedly relieve some pressure on the promising rookie, but don't expect huge strides too soon.
