2013 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New York Giants
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Giants are another team that was a bit of a disappointment last year. They missed out on the playoffs but did have a winning record. New York certainly has the talent to be a top team, though. The offense suffered some because of injury last year, so a healthy season could go a long way. The defense lacked consistency last season but again, is a talented unit that can produce when all is going well. We expect this team to rebound and make the playoffs. New York might not be a Super Bowl team but is a playoff team.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

David Wilson, RB. Wilson gets the chance to start for the Giants this season. He is a big-play threat and playmaker, so expect some huge games along the way. He has a lot of total yardage potential his second season. He could lose out on some goal-line work, which is a bit of a concern, but we still like his chances to be a top No. 2 fantasy back. He'll pile up the yards and carry fantasy teams any given week. Wilson has the making of being a fantasy star.

FANTASY DUD

Brandon Myers, TE. Myers had a breakout season with the Raiders last year, emerging as the starter and most consistent target for the Raiders. His big season landed him a nice deal with the Giants to take over as their starter. Myers will produce for the Giants this season but don't expect a repeat of last year. The Giants just don't utilize the tight end as much as some teams. Plus, they have some top receivers getting many of the targets in the passing game.

Team Notes

Apr 23, 02:43 AM New York Giants QB Josh Freeman signed a minimum-salary deal that only guarantees $55,000 in signing bonuses and $10,000 in workout bonuses. Assuming he plays out the season, Freeman will earn $795,000 and the cap hit for the team will be $635,000.
Apr 22, 07:43 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) addressed the rumor that he was injured playing basketball, stating the procedure was already scheduled before he visited Duke University's practice facility for a shootaround.
Apr 22, 07:33 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) expects to be 100 percent for the beginning of training camp. Manning has no concerns about learning the Giants' new playbook, instead getting healthy is his first priority.
Apr 22, 02:43 PM New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said he is still waiting for a clear MRI to be medically cleared, but is currently ahead of schedule.
Apr 22, 01:53 PM New York Giants QB Josh Freeman said he still views himself as a starting caliber quarterback.
Apr 22, 01:03 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said his ankle is progressing but he does not have a timetable for his return to the field. Manning is currently in a walking boot.
Apr 22, 12:43 PM New York Giants OG Chris Snee (hip, elbow) said he is fully healthy and will do everything in the team's offseason program.
Apr 22, 12:33 PM New York Giants FS Stevie Brown (knee) said he feels like he is ready to go when the Giants hit the field after recovering from a serious knee injury. Brown said he will likely have to watch his knee a bit at first.
Apr 22, 10:33 AM The New York Giants are likely to cut FS Will Hill after his third potential drug suspension.
Apr 22, 09:33 AM New York Giants FS Will Hill is facing a year-long suspension after reportedly failing another drug test. He will appeal what would be his third drug-related suspension.

Apr 20, 02:22 AM The New York Giants have not made a decision on CB Prince Amukamara and whether they will pick up his fifth-year option.
Apr 18, 05:22 PM Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said on SiriusXM NFL Radio QB Eli Manning has recovered from minor procedures no one knew about in the past.

Fantasy Impact: Doesn't sound like a big deal but we'll keep you posted if anything comes of it.
Apr 17, 07:32 PM New York Giants OG Chris Snee (hip, elbow) is expected to participate when offseason workouts begin next week even though he is not 100 percent.
Apr 16, 11:33 PM Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said in a radio interview this week that it is 'ludicrous' to say QB Eli Manning is declining. 'There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort,' Gilbride said. 'I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line. They certainly made a move to do that by bringing in three interior offensive linemen and as soon as they get somebody that's going to be productive for them as an outside receiver. WR Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go to match up, bump and run (and) go win for them.'
Apr 16, 12:33 PM Updating a previous item, the New York Giants agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with QB Josh Freeman. He could receive extra snaps this summer as QB Eli Manning (ankle) recovers from ankle surgery.
