Giants | Andre Williams drawing praise from coach

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:30:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is poised for a bounce-back year in the opinion of head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear exactly what McAdoo means by "bounce-back year" for Williams, whose best season was averaging 3.3 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014. Williams reportedly dropped weight in the offseason, but he has no business stealing reps from Rashad Jennings or rookie Paul Perkins unless he has completely transformed his running style. Consider him an extreme longshot to be a fantasy factor in 2016.

Giants | Ben McAdoo officially a head coach

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 12:15:48 -0800

The New York Giants officially announced that Ben McAdoo will be their next head coach Thursday, Jan. 14. He's been the Giants offensive coordinator the last two seasons. New York's offense ranked 10th and eighth, respectively, in the NFL the last two seasons. QB Eli Manning's numbers have improved in each of the past two years, too. Manning completed 58.5% of his passes in 2013 for 3,818 yards, 18 touchdowns and 27 interceptions but threw a career-high 35 touchdowns this year.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Manning and the Giants offense, as they'll keep familiarity with McAdoo. McAdoo has made the Giants much more efficient in his version of the west coast offense. Manning can be a low-end QB1, and his favorite target, Odell Beckham Jr., should be a top-five fantasy pick in 2016.

Giants | Ben McAdoo will be Giants new coach

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 17:31:55 -0800

New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo will be the new head coach of the Giants, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: McAdoo's hiring should be good news for Eli Manning and the offense since the offensive system should not change much. Eli Manning should be considered a starting quarterback in some deeper leagues, while Odell Beckham Jr. should be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts. Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen likely will be middle-round options in a majority of fantasy leagues.
