3) Daniel Jones is the best deep-ball passer from 2020
Quarterback Daniel Jones went deep just 39 times last season, but was effective doing it.
After posting a CPOE of -4.9% in 2019, Jones took a huge leap in 2020 to +14.8%, an improvement of +19.7% points, the largest in the entire league from 2019 to 2020.
With weapons like Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Kadarius Toney, Evan Engram, and Rudolph, not to mention Barkley’s return, Jones will be throwing the ball down the field a lot this season, hopefully improving his deep-ball stat from 2020.
