What to do with Daniel Jones in Week 12 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Daniel Jones ahead of the Giants Week 12 matchup against the Bengals.

Daniel Jones’ last game was a big one for the New York Giants quarterback. Statistically, it was just okay; he threw for 244 yards and ran for 62 more along with rushing touchdown. But the big win in that outing was the fact that Jones did not turnover the ball. That’s two games in a row now without a turnover. Can he make it three and produce useable fantasy stats this week against the Bengals?

Fantasy Football analysis: Giants QB Daniel Jones

The Bengals haven’t been much of a threat to opposing quarterbacks this season. They’ve given up 22 passing touchdowns, while managing a respectable nine interceptions. Quarterbacks have thrown multiple scores in seven out of 10 games.

There aren’t many weeks where we can confidently recommend Jones as a viable fantasy football option, but this is actually one of those weeks. Don’t start him over some of the much better options out there, but if you need a one week streaming option, Jones is good enough.
