With New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz (heel), Ramses Barden (knee) and Louis Murphy (undisclosed) sidelined due to injuries, WR Jerrel Jernigan is getting plenty of reps in practice. He might be used as the slot receiver while Cruz recovers from his heel injury.

New York Giants special teams coordinator Tom Quinn said the team's competition for the punt returner job is wide open. Quinn mentioned WR Rueben Randle, CB Jayron Hosley, WR Jerrel Jernigan, WR Kevin X. Hardy, FS Laron Scott and CB Charles James as candidates for the role.

New York Giants CB Corey Webster (groin), DE Damontre Moore (shoulder), OT James Brewer (concussion) and Jerrel Jernigan (undisclosed) are not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 13.

New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle, Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan are expected to be the team's top five wideouts. After that, there is a battle between Ramses Barden, Keith Carlos, Kevin X. Hardy and Julian Talley for the sixth receiver job, if the team elects to keep that many. WR Kris Adams (leg) was in the mix for the No. 6 job, but he fractured a leg in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 10.

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle turned heads during the offseason program, and he is ready for a bigger role in the offense behind WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. However, Randle is not locked into the third receiver job yet, as he needs to hold off WRs Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan and Louis Murphy, among others.
Fantasy Tip: Randle has the most upside of any of the competitors for the No. 3 job, and with a good season he could make the injury-prone Nicks expendable after this season. For fantasy purposes, Randle is a nice later round addition on draft day. He is potentially just more Nicks injury or setback away from starting.

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan could be the team's primary kick returner this season if they do not want RB David Wilson to handle the role since he is expected to be the starting running back.
Thu, 23 May 2013 10:17:33 -0700
The New York Giants re-signed WR Ramses Barden to an undisclosed deal Thursday, May 23.
Fantasy Tip: This signing shouldn't have much to do with the fact that both Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are absent from organized team activities this week. Barden will have to compete for the No. 4 receiver role with Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan, though, so his chances to make significant contributions in the passing game may rely on injuries. For now, consider him a possible waiver wire target later in the year.

New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks were missing at organized team activities Wednesday, May 22, over contract disputes, so QB Eli Manning was working with WRs Jerrel Jernigan, Louis Murphy and Rueben Randle during the session.
Wed, 22 May 2013 10:22:42 -0700
New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan has shown progress as Victor Cruz remains absent from OTAs. WR Hakeem Nicks said his teammate has been adjusting well to the slot role, which fits him. "I feel like he got a lot of reps," Nicks added. "He's a little older now, he's a little mature. He got more patient in his routes. ... He's catching the ball a lot better, and he's ready to step up."
Fantasy Tip: Complementary pieces to this aerial game have filled solid fantasy depth roles for the last few years. With Domenik Hixon gone, Jernigan has a chance to make more noise, but the presence of Louis Murphy and Rueben Randle probably limits his upside.

New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said he believes WR Jerrel Jernigan has the opportunity to step his game up during offseason workouts since he will be the main slot receiver with restricted free-agent WR Victor Cruz sitting out the workouts. "I think it's about time that he steps up. And I think we feel he has enough ability and he's been here now long enough. Until Victor gets back, he'll be the main guy inside at the slot position. It's a chance for him to shine and step forward and do the things that we believe he can do," Gilbride said.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are clearly the top two receivers on the team but Jernigan could have the chance to compete for playing time if he does well during the workouts and training camp. Jernigan has not done much since entering the league and probably is not worthy to be selected in drafts at this point.
