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

Tops 300 yards in season finale
QBNew York Giants
December 29, 2019
Jones completed 28 of 47 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
He also gained 26 rushing yards on three carries but committed two more fumbles, losing one of them. Ball security was a major issue for the rookie -- he finished 2019 with 12 INTs and 11 lost fumbles in 13 games (12 starts) -- but otherwise Jones gave the Giants reason to believe they've found the long-term successor to Eli Manning, as he completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,027 yards and 24 touchdowns, albeit with a modest 6.6 YPA. With Saquon Barkley in the backfield, Jones doesn't need to carry the offense on his own, but if he can reduce his turnovers in 2020 he should have the receiving weapons around him to put together a strong fantasy campaign.
