Outlook

The Giants were a disappointment last year, leading to the firing of long-time coach Tom Coughlin. He was replaced by offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who many consider a top offensive mind in the game. This bodes well for the offense but the defense remains a concern. There are still some holes on that side of the ball. A healthy season should help improve the Giants and they play in a weak division, which is another plus. This team could challenge for the division title but don't expect a breakouts season by any means.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Rookie Sterling Shepard has a chance to make a big impact as a rookie. He should man the slot in a pass-first offense. This gives him a lot of value for the coming year. Shepard could end up being the top rookie receiver this season, getting lot of chances to catch the ball and make big plays. He can turn a short pass into a big play in a hurry. He could push the 1,000-yard mark as a rookie, especially if Victor Cruz still isn't 100 percent this year.
FANTASY DUD
Many thought tight end Larry Donnell would have a big year last year as the clear starter for the team but that wasn't the case. He didn't top 40 yards in a game and missed about half the season because of a neck injury. Meanwhile, Will Tye played well in his place down the stretch and could push for even more playing time this year. This doesn't bode well for Donnell to produce like he has in past years.

May 12, 05:13 PM New York Giants rookie RB Paul Perkins isn't expected to have much of an impact in his rookie season, in the opinion of Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Vacchiano anticipates RB Andre Williams to have the first shot at being the short-yardage running back and Jennings' backup, with RB Shane Vereen reprising his pass-catching and third-down role.

May 12, 05:03 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to be the workhorse running back and receive the majority of carries in 2016, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Jennings saw 48.3% of the Giants' carries last season, but Vacchiano expects that to increase this season.

Fantasy Impact: Don't forget about Jennings come draft day. He still has some value with little competition pushing him for playing time.
May 10, 10:03 PM New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said Tuesday, May 10, that he feels 'great', and he feels he will be ready for training camp. However, it is uncertain if that means he will be a full participant or limited.
May 10, 09:00 AM New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is in the best position of all of the team's draft picks to make a significant impact. Head coach Ben McAdoo sees Shepard as a player he can use all over the formation in a variety of roles as a complement to WR Odell Beckham Jr.
