Jayden Daniels Fantasy Impact

The Washington Commanders selected LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels with the second overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft. For an offensive-minded Kliff Kingsbury, the selection makes sense. Daniels has dual-threat capability. He has elite speed, burst, and the type of flexibility that allows him to wiggle out of the pocket and get around defenders, breaking free into the open field. Similar to Kyler Murray, Kingsbury seems to prefer the mobile Quarterback. 

Despite the fantasy hype of being able to pick up yards on the ground, Daniels is regarded by many as the best quarterback in this draft class. He is younger, taller, and faster than many QBs in this draft class. Although Daniels’ landing spot isn’t as nice as rookie Caleb Williams’s, the Commanders’ offense features a wealth of skill.

What Are The Odds?

Jayden Daniels is +900 to win the Rookie of the Year, although that could change closer to the start of the NFL season. If you’re interested in betting on this or any Washington Comandders players, research the sportsbook you sign up for.

NFL achievements

Daniels has five seasons of starting experience under his belt. He has the playmaking ability and pocket maturity to succeed as an NFL quarterback and the accomplishments to prove it. In addition to winning the SEC Offensive Player of the Year, the Davey O’Brien Award, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, the Heisman Trophy, and the AP College Football Player of the Year, Daniels also received several other honors.

Fantasy Impact

There is a real chance that Daniels will lead all rookie signal callers in fantasy points in 2024 because of his accuracy and outstanding rushing abilities. This might enable him to complete the season as one of the top 15 quarterbacks, though it’s unlikely.

The ideal scenario in redraft is to acquire Daniels as a backup to a more seasoned but uninteresting veteran. However, because of his rushing, Daniels could have a secure floor if you want to take a chance on him as your starter in a deeper league. He is probably a top-three choice in 2QB/Superflex leagues and a top-eight pick in 1QB leagues in dynasty leagues.

Being a mobile quarterback, Daniels is at risk of injury despite the upside. His small build—6 foot-4, 210 pounds—was the first thing scouts worried about throughout the draft process.
