When Daniel Jones was selected at No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, many fans and analysts alike questioned the pick. But after a surprisingly impressive rookie season that saw him rack up 3,027 passing yards and 26 total touchdowns, Jones has certainly proven he belongs at the NFL level.

According to his projections for the 2020 season, provided by FanDuel Sportsbook, he could also be poised for a second-year leap.

The over/under for Jones' passing yard total has been set at 3,799.5 yards, with even odds on both sides. His touchdown total, meanwhile, has been set at 26.5, with +102 odds on the over and -128 odds on the under.

If Jones were to reach this projections, it would be an increase of about 800 passing yards. While that would be a significant leap in production, it's actually right in line with what he was doing on a per-game basis.

Last season, Jones averaged 250.8 passing yards per game, which equates to about 4,013.0 passing yards over the course of a 16-game season.

Playing behind a rebuilt offensive line, headlined by the addition of Andrew Thomas, it's not a stretch to think Jones could reach, or exceed, these projections – particularly if Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate can stay on the field.
