Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Giants were a disappointment last year, leading to the firing of long-time coach Tom Coughlin. He was replaced by offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who many consider a top offensive mind in the game. This bodes well for the offense but the defense remains a concern. There are still some holes on that side of the ball. A healthy season should help improve the Giants and they play in a weak division, which is another plus. This team could challenge for the division title but don't expect a breakouts season by any means.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Rookie Sterling Shepard has a chance to make a big impact as a rookie. He should man the slot in a pass-first offense. This gives him a lot of value for the coming year. Shepard could end up being the top rookie receiver this season, getting lot of chances to catch the ball and make big plays. He can turn a short pass into a big play in a hurry. He could push the 1,000-yard mark as a rookie, especially if Victor Cruz still isn't 100 percent this year.
FANTASY DUD
Many thought tight end Larry Donnell would have a big year last year as the clear starter for the team but that wasn't the case. He didn't top 40 yards in a game and missed about half the season because of a neck injury. Meanwhile, Will Tye played well in his place down the stretch and could push for even more playing time this year. This doesn't bode well for Donnell to produce like he has in past years.

Team Notes

Jun 23, 01:33 AM New York Giants DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa worked on the interior of the defensive line during spring practices, working alongside DT Johnathan Hankins in nickel pass-rushing defenses. His role might be similar to how the team used DE-LB Mathias Kiwanuka.
