Daniel Jones Stumbles Into Fantasy Production On Thursday

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones had his best statistical performance of the season on Thursday night, but still came up short in a one-point loss to the Eagles. Jones was 20-for-30 passing for 187 yards and two touchdowns while also adding 92 rushing yards. While those were positives for the second-year QB, Jones had his share of shortcomings as well. Jones should've had a touchdown on a perfectly-executed read-option in the third quarter, but stumbled five yards short of the end zone. Other negatives for Jones included an interception and a fumble as he has not had a turnover-free game this season. His rushing upside gives him QB2 appeal in superflex leagues, but Jones hasn't put up good enough numbers to start in one-QB formats.
