Daniel Jones had some ups and downs throughout his rookie season, but he flashed some real upside. In just 13 games (12 starts), Jones racked up 3,027 passing yards and 24 touchdowns.

And he could be in for a really productive 2020 campaign, according to the over/under totals provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

The over/under for Jones' passing touchdowns has been set at 26.5. For reference, 26 passing TDs would've had Jones tied for the eighth-most scores in the league last season, alongside MVP-caliber players like Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan.

His passing yards over/under has also been set at 3,849.5, tying him with Carson Wentz.

It's fair to expect Jones to make sizable improvements this season. In 2019, the Giants had an average offensive line, according to Football Outsiders' ratings. It looks like they could be upgrading that unit, though, as the odds suggest the Giants will be selecting a tackle in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

If New York's pass protection improves next season, Jones could be a much more productive player. And the odds certainly suggest Jones will be in for a really great campaign in 2020.
