Daniel Jones: Playing with a skeleton crew on Thanksgiving, Jones managed a QB19 (14.5 points) scoring week. Jones has been up and down as a starter for fantasy but has rarely bottomed out as a viable 2QB option. Over his past eight games, Jones has three QB1 scoring weeks, but just one week lower than QB19.
Jones typically goes as his rushing output goes. In his three QB1 scoring weeks this season, Jones has had 18.8, 16.7, and 11.0 rushing points. Outside of those weeks, Jones is averaging 2.8 rushing points per game and as a byproduct, 13.8 total fantasy points per game those weeks.
Over their past eight games, the Commanders have been strong defensively. Since Week 5, Washington has allowed a 60.9% completion rate (fifth), 6.6 yards per pass attempt (sixth), and an 82.3 rating (fifth). They also are third in the NFL in pressure rate (36.3%). Jones will need his legs here to be handled as more than a 2QB option.
