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

Jul 21, 11:23 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning didn't run with the team at training camp Monday, July 21, and threw on the side with coaches instead. Manning said that not running had nothing to do with his offseason ankle surgery.
Jul 21, 09:43 PM New York Giants OT Brandon Mosley will be given the first chance to start in place of OG Chris Snee when the first-team offensive line takes the field Tuesday, July 22, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Snee announced his retirement Monday, July 21.
Jul 21, 05:12 PM New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) will begin training camp on the team's physically unable to perform list.
Jul 21, 05:02 PM New York Giants OT William Beatty (leg), OG John Jerry (knee) and WR Mario Manningham (knee) will be limited when training camp starts.
Jul 21, 04:23 PM New York Giants OG John Jerry (knee) was on the field stretching Monday, July 21, after not participating in all of the team's spring drills.
Jul 21, 04:12 PM New York Giants OT William Beatty (leg) was on the field for conditioning tests Monday, July 21.
Jul 21, 01:42 PM New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) should be able to help the offense if he is able to stay healthy this upcoming season, according to former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Gilbride said Wilson needs to work on his pass blocking and route running.
Jul 21, 01:42 PM Updating a previous report, New York Giants OG Chris Snee has officially announced his retirement from professional football.
Jul 21, 11:03 AM New York Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. is viewed as an outside receiver despite standing just 5-foot-11, and he might push WR Rueben Randle for the No. 2 job opposite WR Victor Cruz.
Jul 21, 11:02 AM New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings is setup to get most of the work at running back for the Giants this season.
Jul 21, 10:32 AM New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said that he has been cleared for everything.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson remains a big injury risk but has upside as long as he is healthy. He'll get some work in this offense.
Jul 20, 09:52 PM New York Giants OG Chris Snee (elbow) will announce his retirement Monday, July 21, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano.

Fantasy Impact: This is a big loss for the offensive line. He'll be hard to replace for the Giants.
Jul 20, 10:32 AM New York Giants owner John Mara said head coach Tom Coughlin is not on the hot seat, but also added that Coughlin has not earned the right to leave on his own terms. 'Does anybody ever earn that right? That's just not the way this business is in this day and age,' Mara said. 'Let's hope that it goes that way, but we haven't even had that discussion yet. ? We're just looking forward to the next couple of seasons.'
Jul 20, 10:32 AM New York Giants QB Eli Manning has not had any contract extension talks with the team, according to owner John Mara. "We haven't even really discussed that yet," Mara said. "We'll discuss that at the appropriate time. Obviously it's our hope that he finish his career as a Giant."
Jul 18, 09:52 PM New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib is entering training camp as the leading candidate for the No. 2 quarterback job and probably will have to really struggle to lose the job to QB Curtis Painter.
Jul 18, 01:32 PM New York Giants OG John Jerry (knee) should be ready for the start of training camp, according to a league source.
