Giants QB Daniel Jones was able to finish as the overall QB9 last year, much to the surprise of the fantasy community after failing to finish as a top-20 QB in each of the three years before 2022. However, that finish was buoyed heavily by Jones’ rushing ability, with the fourth-year QB putting up over 700 yards rushing and 7 touchdowns on the ground.
It was a different story through the air, though, just as it’s been throughout his career. It was another year, another failure to support a Top-36 fantasy WR by Jones, who has yet to do so since entering the leagues since 2019. That might have more to do with the quality of the WRs he’s played with, but it remains that Giants receivers simply have not produced at a fantasy-relevant level since Jones has been under center.
The Giants did go out and get help for Jones in the passing game this offseason, adding the closest thing to a WR without being a WR in TE Darren Waller via trade. Waller has already been peppered with targets according to numerous training camp reports, and despite not playing at WR, Waller could be in line to be the Giants’ most productive pass catcher in over five years.
