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

Oct 30, 03:12 PM New York Giants DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 30. CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, hamstring) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) were both limited in practice.
Oct 30, 02:42 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he is on track in terms of his rehab, but there is no timetable for his return. Jennings said he has not suffered any setbacks but is not ready to play yet.
Oct 30, 11:12 AM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9.
Oct 29, 05:33 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 29.
Oct 28, 10:33 AM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.
Oct 27, 05:43 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ruling out the possibility of playing in Week 9 but will not return until he is ready. Jennings did not run during the bye week and was only able to do some light jogging Monday, Oct. 27.
Oct 27, 02:03 PM New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) participated in practice Monday, Oct. 27, but likely will not be able to play in Week 9. Schwartz is on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.
Oct 27, 01:53 PM New York Giants DE Cullen Jenkins (calf) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 27, and likely will miss at least two games.
Oct 27, 01:53 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 27. Jennings is expected to do some things during practice this week but his status for Week 9 is uncertain.
Oct 27, 01:53 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot, toe) needs to undergo surgery on his injured foot and will miss the rest of the 2014 season.
Oct 25, 12:42 AM New York Giants DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) is expected to miss at least a few weeks, so DEs Robert Ayers and Mathias Kiwanuka could be asked to play interior positions more frequently in pass-rush situations. DT Jay Bromley is likely to be elevated to the active roster in Jenkins' absence, and there is a chance DT Damontre Moore could get more looks on the outside if Ayers and/or Kiwanuka are moved inside.
Oct 25, 12:42 AM New York Giants LB Devon Kennard might see more playing time with LB Jon Beason (toe) injured and possibly sidelined a while.
Oct 23, 01:03 AM New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is just scratching the surface, according to tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride. Some of his mistakes, including fumbles and blocking deficiencies, are simply the product of a player at the low end of his ultimate progression. 'He's so green with everything he does,' Gilbride said. 'He hasn't been playing the position for very long. But he works at it, he tries to get better and it's paid off in the passing game and he's getting better every week in the run game.'
Oct 23, 01:03 AM New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is destined to return to practice next week, but he still has a ways to go before he is ready for a game. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty is uncertain where Schwartz will play, only that he will. Schwartz might play right guard for OG John Jerry or left guard for rookie OG Weston Richburg.
Oct 23, 01:03 AM New York Giants WR Corey Washington has few targets, zero catches and he was inactive in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. Receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22, Washington has disappeared after his big preseason because he is still raw. 'He's learning to run an entire route tree,' Ryan said. 'There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his tops of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress.'
Oct 23, 01:03 AM New York Giants QB Eli Manning has completed 65 percent of his passes, which would be a career high. He also has 14 touchdown passes to just five interceptions, compared to 10 touchdowns and 15 interceptions at this point last season. '(The difference is) probably in his football,' quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf said Wednesday, Oct. 22. 'I think he is playing at a high level and I think improved football has really helped out.'
