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

Jan 26, 01:52 PM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he'll need to shut himself down this offseason in order to enter 2015 fully healthy and in great shape. He said he had tears to his semitendinosus and bicep belly of his hamstring this season. 'It's still not right, I'm still working on it,' Beckham said. 'I'm trying to get it 100 percent for next year.'
Jan 26, 11:22 AM New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed.

Fantasy Impact: If true, it is pretty unreal that he was able to play at such a high level. You have to wonder what he can do if he is healthy.
