Quarterback debuts don't get much better than Daniel Jones' from Week 3 when he burst onto the fantasy football scene with a massive four-touchdown game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

If you were concerned that he might be a one-week wonder, his stellar start to the New York Giants' Week 4 meeting with the Washington Redskins should put your mind at ease.

Jones' opening drive of Week 4 was nearly perfect, completing 5-of-6 passing attempts for 42 yards and one touchdown, even converting a fourth down through the air.

Jones is still benefiting from the Giants' offense being in a terrific spot in a soft matchup, but he's doing exactly what you want to see from a QB in a good spot — producing outstanding numbers.

Already showing that his debut was no fluke, another big game from Danny Dimes will give his fantasy value a huge boost, even possibly bringing him into the conversation as a potential every-week starter in fantasy football. Still available in about 33 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, expect Jones to be a hot waiver wire add in leagues in which he's not already on a roster.
