New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. had six drops in his final 82 targets of the 2016 season. He had only nine drops in the first 381 targets of his career. Beckham did suffer a minor thumb injury during the team's Week 11 game, which may have affected his play.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham did have a few drops during the Wild Card playoff game but is still one of the best receivers in the NFL. Beckham likely will be selected in one of the first two rounds of fantasy drafts and should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants have used multiple running backs over the last few years and may be interested in Peterson as their main back. Peterson should receive most of the carries wherever he goes and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Donnell probably won't be back with the Giants next year, and he is going to struggle to find fantasy relevance no matter where he signs.

New York Giants DB Leon Hall was not fined by the National Football League for his hit on WR Jordy Nelson in the wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8. Nelson exited the game after sustaining two fractured ribs on the play and has already been ruled out for the Divisional round game versus the Dallas Cowboys.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz could be a cap casualty this offseason because the team would save $7.5 million in salary cap space if he is released. He is currently scheduled to count $9.4 million against the 2017 salary cap.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will be available during free agency but could re-sign with the Giants at a lower price. He probably will be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver no matter where he signs next season and would only be a No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning finished the 2016 season with 4,027 yards and 26 touchdowns versus 16 interceptions, but he just turned 36 this month, prompting the Giants to begin thinking about who will succeed him in a few years. "We always think about every position. But Eli is 36, and we have started to think about who (will be) the next quarterback, and who is in line. So we will look into that as we move into the offseason. Thirty-six, I don't think that is ancient for a quarterback. I think he is probably on the back nine, but I don't think that is ancient for a quarterback, and he is taking care of himself really well, and I thought he finished the season strong," general manager Jerry Reese said.
Fantasy Tip: While it is true that Manning finished strong, there is no question he took a step back in 2016. Most of the likely incoming crop of top quarterbacks - a group that includes Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Washington State’s Luke Falk - could all be available to the Giants when they go on the clock with their first-round pick in a few months. Manning figures to be a midrange QB2 in fantasy next year.

Impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants) has no interest in signing another one-year, "prove-it" deal this spring like he did in 2016.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz finished the season with 39 receptions for 586 yards and one touchdown after missing most of the previous two years with knee and calf injuries. He wants to return, but he is slated to make $6.4 million (and count $9.4 million against the cap) in 2017. "This is family. This is home. I don't know anywhere else. I don't want to know anywhere else," Cruz said.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz would still count for $1.9 million against the cap if he is cut in the offseason, but his release would provide $7.5 million worth of savings for the team, so he's probably done in New York unless he's willing to accept a huge pay cut. Given the expected drop-off in speed and quickness he displayed in 2016, he'll be hard-pressed to find a fantasy-worthy gig in 2017.
