2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New York Giants
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Giants were a mess last season but still finished just two games under .500 despite the awful season. Much of this year might depend on Eli Manning, who really struggled last season. If he can get it going again, this team can be pretty dangerous. The defense is improved and offense could be good with the new weapons added for the rushing and passing games. This team should contend for a return to the playoffs.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Some might consider last season a breakout one for Rashad Jennings, but he didn't start from day one and his overall numbers weren't off the charts. We like his chances better this year for a big fantasy season. He is going to start to open the season and has a good shot for a lot of touches in both the running and passing game. Jennings is a pretty good bet to top 1,000 total yards and near double-digit scores. He seems a good fit for his new offense and ready to finally get his shot to shine.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Rueben Randle was thought to be a breakout candidate this season but the addition of Odell Beckham clouds those chances some. Randle should work out of the slot and probably won't get the same amount of targets as the other two starters for the Giants. He still might have some big games but don't expect consistent numbers in his current role. Beckham seems setup for better numbers his rookie season, starting and getting the chance to stretch the field often.

Team Notes

Sep 18, 05:02 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) is feeling better and has not ruled out playing this week against the Houston Texans. Beason has not practiced the last two days.
Sep 18, 03:02 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, ankle) and LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) both did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. P Steve Weatherford (ankle), OT James Brewer (back) and OT Charles Brown (shoulder) were all limited in practice.
Sep 18, 01:52 PM Updating a previous report, New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) is scheduled to visit a foot specialist to examine his foot injury Friday, Sept. 19.
Sep 18, 01:42 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. Beckham Jr. is working off to the side.
Sep 18, 08:42 AM New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had three drops in Week 2 after demanding to see the ball more before the game. He vowed to get better moving forward.
Sep 17, 11:23 PM New York Giants CB Trumaine McBride is expected to start in place of the injured CB Walter Thurmond (pectoral) in the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans.
Sep 17, 11:23 PM New York Giants OL Eric Herman is eligible to return to the team after having his four-game suspension for violation of the drug policy voided. The team has applied for a roster exemption for Herman, giving them a week to decide how to handle the roster spot. The team would have to cut a player to open a spot for Herman, or, if they want to place him on the practice squad, they must waive him and hope he is not picked up by another team.
Sep 17, 04:03 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) has not been ruled out for Week 3 even though he is dealing with a foot injury, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Sep 17, 03:13 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, ankle), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) all did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17. OT James Brewer (back) and OT Charles Brown (shoulder) both were limited in practice.
Sep 17, 03:13 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Sep 17, 01:43 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. Head coach Tom Coughlin was non-committal when asked if Beckham would play.
Sep 17, 12:53 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is making progress but will not participate in practice this week, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Beckham will work on the side during practice.
Sep 16, 07:03 PM The New York Giants re-signed WR Travis Harvey to their practice squad and signed free-agent WR L'Damian Washington (49ers) to their practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Sep 16, 06:03 PM New York Giants WR Julian Talley and LB Dan Fox were promoted to the team's active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16, filling the spots left by WR Jerrel Jernigan and CB Walter Thurmond, who were both placed on Reserve/Injured.
Sep 16, 06:03 PM New York Giants WR Preston Parker could see more snaps with WR Jerrell Jernigan recently placed on Reserve/Injured. Parker caught one pass for 29 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. WRs Corey Washington and Julian Talley are also candidates for more playing time.

Fantasy Impact: We still wouldn't expect much from Parker. He'll be very hit or miss.
Sep 16, 05:13 PM New York Giants CB Walter Thurmond (pectoral) has been placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 16.
