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

Strong preseason continues
QBNew York Giants
August 22, 2019
Jones completed nine of 11 passes for 141 yards in Thursday's 25-23 preseason win over Cincinnati. He also fumbled, but it was recovered by a teammate.
ANALYSIS
After Eli Manning played the opening drive, Jones was under center for the rest of the first half, looking solid in the process. The rookie first-rounder out of Duke has completed 25 of 30 passes this preseason, so the Giants should have no qualms about handing Jones the backup job to start the season.
