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

Apr 15, 11:43 PM New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris has experience playing the slot, and he could be called upon in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is unable to make it for the start of the regular season. WRs Kevin Ogletree and Preston Parker are also in the hunt.
Apr 15, 11:43 PM New York Giants WR Preston Parker has worked in the slot, and he could see time in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the start of the regular season. WRs Dwayne Harris and Kevin Ogletree are also battling for the possible opening.
Apr 15, 11:43 PM New York Giants WR Kevin Ogletree has experience working in the slot, and he might be used in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the beginning of the regular season. WRs Dwayne Harris and Preston Parker could also be in the mix.
Apr 15, 11:43 PM The New York Giants do not know whether and to what extent WR Victor Cruz (knee) will recover from the severe knee injury he suffered last season. He might not be ready for the start of training camp, and if he can go Cruz is expected to be on a somewhat limited program.
Apr 15, 11:43 PM New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is projected to start alongside WR Odell Beckham Jr., as the team is uncertain how far WR Victor Cruz (knee) will make it back from his torn patellar injury.
Apr 14, 06:03 PM Free-agent CB Josh Gordy (Colts) signed a veteran minimum deal with the New York Giants Tuesday, April 14, according to a source.
Apr 10, 03:22 PM New York Giants LB Victor Butler has been suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs.
Mar 31, 02:53 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning feels more comfortable in the offense this season. Last year was the team's first exposure to offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's new system. 'This year will be a much easier transition, knowing that we have been through so much of it already? I feel good about it. I feel that I have a good understanding of it, but there is still room to grow and that is why I try to keep it as fresh in my mind as possible,' Manning said.
Mar 26, 05:22 PM New York Giants RB Shane Vereen gives the Giants something they didn't have last season -- a receiving threat out of the backfield. 'I see him in that regard as a pass receiver out of the backfield,' head coach Tom Coughlin said. Coughlin added that Vereen can protect the quarterback and is a capable runner.
Mar 26, 01:42 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning could play out the rest of his contract, but head coach Tom Coughlin didn't sound worried about Manning eventually receiving a contract extension in New York. 'I don't see that as being an issue,' Coughlin said when asked if the absence of an extension would become a distraction for Manning. 'Eli knows he's our guy.' The team brass appears willing to let Manning play out the final year of his contract he signed in 2009.
Mar 26, 01:32 PM New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) 'looks really good and light,' according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz started running last week six months after he tore the patellar tendon in his knee in Week 6. Coughlin projects Cruz to be available for the start of training camp, but he's unsure if Cruz will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. However, the team remains cautiously optimistic about Cruz in 2015.
Mar 25, 11:53 AM New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) could miss the start of the 2015 season with a torn patellar tendon in his knee, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz's goal is to be ready for Week 1.
Mar 23, 07:42 AM New York Giants QB Eli Manning may play the final season of his current contract before the club and Manning talk about an extension, according to two sources.
Mar 20, 10:42 AM Free-agent DE George Selvie (Cowboys) agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the New York Giants Friday, March 20. The deal includes a $200,000 signing bonus.
Mar 20, 03:02 AM New York Giants QB Eli Manning has not had contract extension talks with the team yet, but co-owner John Mara said something would 'obviously be done at some point.'
Mar 19, 06:52 PM Free-agent C/G J.D. Walton (Giants) will sign an undisclosed contract with the Miami Dolphins.
