Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
The story this week is going to be how well Jones' hamstring can hold up. If he's in fact good to go, he'll get a juicy matchup against the lowly Seattle secondary. Reports said that he was mildly immobilized after trying to play through that hammy strain so be sure to be on top of all practice reports before inserting him into lineups. We'll know more later in the week.

Season Projections
Suiting up for 12 starts during his rookie debut, the sixth overall selection in the 2019 draft showed regular flashes of legit starter ability but committed his share of rookie mistakes, too. Jones punched out of the regular season as the fantasy QB21 despite operating behind a very shaky line and never having all his top playmakers available at the same time due to injuries. From Week 3 through Week 8, Jones was quietly the fifth-most productive fantasy quarterback. On the season, he averaged 232.8 passing yards, 1.8 touchdown strikes, 0.9 picks and 21.5 rushing yards per contest with two rushing touchdowns scored. However, he also tossed 12 picks and fumbled 18 times (lost 11). Only Jameis Winston (Saints) committed more turnovers. With Eli Manning now officially retired, the Giants offense, including a beefed up line, belongs to Jones. New York has surrounded him with a very serviceable arsenal of pass-catching weapons, which includes Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. There's concern that new offensive boss Jason Garrett will utilize the same slow-paced run-first Air Coryell scheme that he preferred with the Cowboys, but expect Jones to throw frequently and top his 2019 production since a reworked Big Blue defense that ranked 30th in points allowed and 25th in yards allowed last season will continue to struggle. Assuming Shepard and Engram can stay healthy for most of the season - and assuming Jones can improve his pocket awareness and ball security - occasional top-10 fantasy outings aren't out of the question for this No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Passing: 924 Yards, 6 TD, 3 INT.
Rushing: 121 Yards, 1 TD.
