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

Aug 27, 04:23 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (illness, foot) was not able to do much rehab last week due to food poisoning. Beason said he is feeling better and still on pace to play in the team's Week 1 game.
Aug 26, 01:03 PM New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is dealing with a dislocated right toe, and he'll remain in a walking boot for roughly seven to 10 days and then start his rehab program. Schwartz will be evaluated on a weekly basis regarding his ability to return to football activities. This is just a minor setback, said Schwartz. I plan on attacking the rehab program so I can get back on the field as soon as possible with my teammates and help us win games.
Aug 26, 01:03 PM New York Giants OT Brandon Mosley (back) is not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Aug 26, 12:23 PM New York Giants WR Marcus Harris (shoulder) and SS Cooper Taylor (foot) were both placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Aug 26, 10:03 AM The New York Giants released LB Spencer Adkins.
Aug 26, 09:43 AM Updating previous reports, New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) will not require surgery and is week to week.
Aug 26, 09:43 AM New York Giants PK Josh Brown won the team's starting kicker job.
Aug 25, 07:22 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the rest of the starters will play around 15 to 18 snaps in the team's preseason finale against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. The Giants offense has struggled in the preseason, and Manning threw his first touchdown pass last week.
Aug 25, 05:43 PM The New York Giants may use a committee approach with their tight ends this season based on different situations, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'I really think that there'll be a group of guys that'll play that'll help us in different situations and will be matched up according to the circumstance,' Coughlin said. 'I think that's where it's going to go. I think there's a lot of roles for that spot.' TEs Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Kellen Davis are expected to make the final roster, but no starter has been named.

Fantasy Impact: None of these guys are standing our right now. We would just avoid the situation.
Aug 25, 05:22 PM New York Giants WR Trindon Holliday (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 25.
Aug 25, 02:33 PM New York Giants OT Brandon Mosley (back) and OT James Brewer (back) are scheduled to meet with doctors Monday, Aug. 25, to have their injured backs examined.

Aug 23, 02:22 PM New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) and WR Marcus Harris (shoulder) will be out for a while, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
