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 19, 06:12 PM New York Giants DT Cullen Jenkins (calf) left the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys in the first half due to a calf injury and his return is doubtful.
Oct 19, 06:12 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (toe) aggravated his toe injury in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and was forced from the game. He will not return.
Oct 19, 03:02 PM The New York Giants have declared WR Corey Washington, OG Adam Snyder, DT Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer, OT Brandon Mosley, DL Jay Bromley, RB Rashad Jennings inactive for Week 7.
Oct 18, 09:02 AM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) intends to start running next week in a pool and on a machine that will alleviate pressure. Jennings is hoping to return in Week 9.
Oct 17, 04:42 PM New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will rehab at the team's facility for the next two to three months and believes he will need four to eight months to recover from his surgery.
Oct 17, 01:42 PM New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) and LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) both were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are questionable for Week 7. LB Jon Beason (toe) and P Steve Weatherford (ankle) both fully practiced and are probable.
Oct 17, 07:12 AM The Detroit Lions brought in free-agent TE Kellen Davis (Seahawks) and TE Richard Gordon (Chiefs) for workouts.
Oct 16, 04:02 PM New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) said he thinks he's around 60 percent healthy while dealing with an injury described as an IT band issue. No surgery has been discussed for Rodgers-Cromartie, which means the team will likely rest him through the bye week and then re-evaluate him.
Oct 16, 02:52 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he hopes to be able to play in the team's Week 9 game. Jennings said he is no longer wearing his knee brace every day and is only wearing it when he is sleeping.
Oct 16, 02:32 PM New York Giants CB Zackary Bowman could start at cornerback in Week 7 if CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, hamstring) is not able to play.
Oct 16, 02:32 PM New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis played 31 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles because the coaching staff doesn't yet trust RB Andre Williams on passing downs. Williams and Hillis are expected to share the workload in the backfield without RB Rashad Jennings (knee) again in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Oct 16, 02:12 PM Updating a previous report, New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) said he hopes to play in Week 7, but likely will miss the game if he is not able to practice Friday, Oct. 17.
Oct 16, 01:52 PM New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) will need to make some progress if he wants to play in Week 7, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Oct 15, 04:23 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been working out and feels better, and he's hoping he can return after the team's Week 8 bye. 'Getting better every day,' Jennings said. 'Just working out in the gym, getting lost in my music and doing everything I need to do so that when I get back, I'll be back up to speed where I was.' He plans to start running this week.
Oct 15, 03:41 PM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will definitely not play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 5. The team is hoping he can return after their bye week. RBs Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis will be relied on again, and Hillis could see additional snaps if QB Eli Manning is under heavy pressure.
Oct 15, 02:53 PM New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) was limited in practice.
