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 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.
Apr 16, 12:23 PM The New York Giants have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Impact: Freeman will compete for the top backup job with the Giants.
Apr 15, 10:23 AM Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said it's 'ludicrous' to think that Giants QB Eli Manning is in decline. '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.'
Apr 14, 02:02 PM Updating a previous report, the New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) Tuesday, April 15.
Apr 13, 06:32 PM The New York Giants are concerned QB Eli Manning is entering the decline stage of his career. The team opted not to extend his deal, which runs through 2015, even though it would grant them salary-cap relief.

Fantasy Impact: This upcoming season could be a make or break one for Manning to keep starting in New York. He was pretty awful much of last year.
Apr 11, 03:02 PM New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is meeting with Albany OT Kadeem Williams Friday, April 11.
Apr 11, 10:02 AM The New York Giants will work out free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) next week.
Apr 10, 03:42 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said he should be able to run again in six weeks after undergoing a 'debridement' of his left ankle Thursday, April 10. 'I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,' Manning said. 'I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle.' Manning's timetable should have him ready for the majority of the team's offseason workouts.

Fantasy Impact: He should be just fine for the coming season. It probably is a good thing he got this surgery done at this point.
Apr 10, 02:42 PM New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Thursday, April 10.
Apr 08, 04:53 PM The Detroit Lions worked out CB Aaron Ross (Giants) Tuesday, April 8.

Apr 03, 11:12 PM New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he is counting on RB David Wilson (neck) to contribute this upcoming season but will not use him until he is 100 percent healthy.
Apr 03, 09:22 PM New York Giants DE Robert Ayers could push for a starting defensive end job of DE Damontre Moore is not able to handle the job. Ayers is expected to be part of a rotation if he does not start.
