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.

Dec 15, 05:33 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game,' Coughlin said. 'Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet.'

Fantasy Impact: At this point, we wouldn't even mess with Jennings. He isn't worth the risk right now.
Dec 14, 09:42 PM New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was benched for at least the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, and it might have been longer had WR Kevin Ogletree (head) not suffered a head injury.

Dec 14, 09:32 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) left the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins after aggravating his ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings just can't be trusted at this point. He hasn't been healthy in weeks.
Dec 14, 09:32 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted 12 receptions for 143 yards and three touchdowns in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins. He now holds the franchise rookie receiving yards record with two games to play.

Dec 14, 02:22 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.
