3. Daniel Jones, Giants

Allow us to defend Daniel Jones for a moment.

The Giants have faced two of the league's top defenses (the Cowboys and 49ers) to start the campaign. He opened against Dallas and a poor Giants performance forced him to drop back 28 times in rainy conditions. He tossed two picks, only crossed 100 yards in garbage time and tallied a 32.4 passer rating.

Jones rebounded in Week 2 against the Cardinals with 321 passing yards and two TDs. He added 59 rushing yards and a score on the ground and was a catalyst in New York's 21-point come-from-behind victory.

Without Saquon Barkley, Week 3 was a different story against the vaunted 49ers. The Giants were systematically beaten on Thursday Night Football. Jones didn't do much, but Brian Daboll schemed underneath throws that barely crossed the line of scrimmage to counter San Francisco's relentless pass rush.

Jones' stats don't look great (he's 30th in passer rating), but better days are ahead. For now, though, he's the third-best QB in the division.
