What to do with Daniel Jones in Week 3 fantasy football

Without Saquon Barkley or Sterling Shepard, can Daniel Jones step it up against the 49ers in Week 3?

NFL: New York Giants at Chicago Bears Mike Dinovo-USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones had a tough outing versus the Chicago Bears last Sunday, being sacked four times and turning the ball over twice in a 17-13 loss. With a Giants offense that have suffered major blows, what prospects does the young QB have in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers?

Fantasy Football analysis: Giants QB Daniel Jones

The second-year signal-caller out of Duke has been pedestrian so far, accounting for only 6.4 yards per attempt while turning the ball over four times through two games this season. On top of Saquon Barkley’s ACL tear, the Giants’ offense was dealt another blow on Wednesday with Sterling Shepard being sent to IR with a toe injury. That places more pressure on the sophomore QB to connect with Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram through the air.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

There are better value options at play for quarterbacks so I’d stay far away from Jones this week.
