Update, Oct. 20 PM — Jones is officially questionable for Week 7. He still hasn’t been cleared for contact, so his status is very much in the air as of Friday.

Update, Oct. 20 — Jones is again expected to be limited in practice on Friday, while not being cleared for contact yet, per Connor Hughes. They aren’t ruling him out though, which means he’ll likely be considered questionable in hopes that he’ll be cleared before the game. If he can’t go, Tyrod Taylor would get the start again.

Update, Oct. 19 — Jones is expected to be a limited practice participant on Thursday and has still not yet been cleared for contact.

The New York Giants will take on the Washington Commanders in an NFC East divisional matchup in Week 7. The Giants are coming off a loss to the Buffalo Bills, which starting quarterback Daniel Jones missed. He is dealing with a neck injury and trying to return to the field. Jones hasn’t been cleared for contact but is at least expected to resume throwing at practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 7

Jones isn’t known for being the best passer and tends to have fantasy football value based on his rushing upside. He hasn’t been able to get on the same page with tight end Darren Waller and has been missing running back Saquon Barkley, who was sidelined for a few weeks with an ankle injury. In a week with six teams on bye, missing Jones could leave some teams scrambling.

If Jones is active, you will play him, even in a tough matchup. If he is inactive, there isn’t a need to run and grab Tyrod Taylor. If Jones sits, I would only trust Barkley and Waller for New York against Washington.
