New York Giants LB Jon Beason is due a $1 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the new league year, which is March 15. He is set to count $7.37 million against the salary cap in 2015. The Giants are trying to decide if he is worth keeping, and Beason is open to possibly re-working his deal. "You're going to do what is best for you and you try to work with the team and do what is best for the team," Beason said after the season. "I know when it comes down to it, (assistant general manager Kevin Abrams) and I and (general manager Jerry Reese) will make it happen."

New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara will likely not get a contract extension this offseason. Amukamara is playing on a fifth-year option, and general manager Jerry Reese does not see the need to award an extension this offseason to gain cap relief.

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle appears to have the commitment from the team heading into next season after being benched twice in 2014. However, general manager Jerry Reese left open the possibility that the team could draft another receiver this year. "I think Rueben gets banged on a lot. Sometimes he should get banged on, but I think he gets banged on sometimes a little too much," Reese said. "I think he is a good, young player and all he needs are some chances. With Odell and Victor, I think he will get plenty of chances." WRs Preston Parker, Corey Washington or Marcus Harris could be backup plans if Randle doesn't pan out.
Fantasy Tip: Randle will have his work cut out for him in retaining the No. 3 receiving job behind Victor Cruz and rookie sensation Odell Beckham Jr. Keep an eye on Randle's health and progress in training camp. If he sticks in the No. 3 spot, he could be a solid option as a WR4 or 5 to round out your receiving depth.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr., who claimed he played part of the season with two torn hamstrings, had his claim questioned by Giants general manager Jerry Reese. "I don't know about that," Reese said. "I think he's trying to be a hero. I don't think you can play with two [tears in your] hamstring and run fast like that. I think our doctors would've caught that."
Fantasy Tip: Reese went on to say Beckham would not have been played in the Pro Bowl had his hamstrings been both torn. Why Beckham is making this claim is a mystery, but it doesn't remove the fact Beckham had a solid rookie season. He is a strong wide receiver option for 2015 fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) looks good as he continues to recover from a torn right pateller tendon in his knee, according to general manager Jerry Reese. Reese said the Giants would not put all their eggs in that basket heading into next year.
Fantasy Tip: If Cruz can stay healthy next season, there is some upside to owning him in fantasy football, especially with team's trying to slow down Odell Beckham Jr. Still, health will be the big question, and Cruz should be considered a WR2 at this point.
