Fantasy Football Week 6 Quarterback Preview: A glimmer of hope for Daniel Jones


At the start of the week, the transparent peak two streaming choices have been Geno Smith and Carson Wentz. Smith, who has performed like a must-start quarterback, noticed his roster price upward thrust to 91% so he is obviously off the board. And Wentz is rostered in 57% of leagues as smartly, so you can be having a look for a 3rd choice. Surprisingly, that choice is Daniel Jones.

Jones hasn’t precisely been Fantasy-relevant this season. His 16.2 issues in line with recreation ranks twenty third amongst quarterbacks. His 6.4 yards in line with cross try and a couple of.3% landing price are profession lows. In different phrases, when you would possibly take a seat Russell Wilson or Matthew Stafford for Smith or Wentz, Jones is extra of a desperation play. But that does not imply there is no such thing as a reason why for optimism.

For something, Jones is coming off one of his superb days as a passer in Week 5 towards the Packers. He finished 21 of 27 passes for 217 yards, did not flip the ball over, and used to be simplest sacked as soon as. He confirmed a robust reference to Darius Slayton, who could also be rising as a extra legit No. 1 receiver than Jones has had for maximum of the 12 months. In the Giants simplest loss this 12 months Jones threw 37 passes towards the Cowboys. If he may just method this kind of potency towards a foul Ravens cross protection, with extra cross quantity, a 300-yard recreation is imaginable.

But Jones does not want 300 yards passing to ship as a top-12 quarterback as a result of of what he is succesful of along with his legs. He ranks fourth amongst all quarterbacks with 41 rush makes an attempt and 3rd with 230 rush yards. The possible of a 50-yard speeding recreation with a ranking lowers the ground of what Jones should do as a passer to be Fantasy-relevant.

Let’s get to the remaining of the preview:
