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.

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.

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin might be a name to watch for the vacant New York Giants offensive coordinator job. He worked with new head coach Ben McAdoo with the Green Bay Packers.
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.

New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said the team plans to stay aggressive and take deep shots against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. "You don't ever go into a game scared. You go in and trust your plan and trust your preparation," McAdoo said. "We hit those throws and made those plays in practice last week. We are going to practice hard and take care of the execution and fundamentals and the physicality this week in practice and go out and expect to execute on Sunday."
Fantasy Tip: Despite the statement, the Giants are unlikely to have a ton of success down the field against Seattle without Victor Cruz. Odell Beckham Jr. has emerged as Eli Manning's favorite target opposite Rueben Randle. Beckham ($5,300) is a bit more expensive than Randle ($5,100), but his athleticism and shiftiness could give the Seahawks more problems.
Fri, 31 Oct 2014 17:46:20 -0700
New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said he would like the offense to make more expensive plays moving forward. McAdoo said the offense would like 13 percent of their plays to be explosive and have only had explosive plays on 10.3 percent of their plays this season.
Fantasy Tip: Eli Manning could see a bump up in his numbers if the team tries to be more aggressive in their play calling. Manning costs $6,400 on FantasyScore this week, but owners may want to see how their offense plays before using him. Odell Beckham Jr. could also benefit from a more explosive offense and could be a flex option.

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:03:22 -0700

Fri, 30 May 2014 14:30:49 -0700
New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's West Coast system was on display Thursday, May 29. The majority of plays included a three-wide receiver set. Expect plenty of screen passes and quick-timing, horizontal pass patterns, with three-step drops from the quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: If the offense clicks, Eli Manning will be more efficient. This is good for all fantasy commodities, especially in PPR formats.

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 17:48:58 -0800
New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said his top priority in running backs is that they are able to pass block.
