Giants | Has Victor Cruz increased his speed?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:17:31 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is supposedly faster now than he was before he tore his patellar tendon last season, according to teammate CB Prince Amukamara. Amukamara said Cruz looked fabulous when they trained together for a day earlier this offseason. Cruz is still recovering from the injury, but he is expected to be ready by training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, it will take Cruz playing in a game that counts for Amukamara's words to come to fruition. If Cruz is fully healed and faster, he could be a big steal in fantasy drafts. There are a few mouths to feed in New York, however, with Odell Beckham Jr., Cruz, Rueben Randle and Shane Vereen, among others. It's safer to draft Cruz as a WR4, but he could easily outperform his average draft position if he stays on the field.

Giants | Eli Manning's contract talks stalled?

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:45:42 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the team have not had meaningful, substantive contract talks in some time.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is expected to re-sign with the team at some point, and whether or not it is before the season begins, he should still be able to provide low-end QB1 value as long as his receivers stay healthy.

Giants | Eli Manning's agent growing impatient?

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:38:26 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning's agent, Tom Condon, seems to be upset with the lack of progress regarding Manning's contract extension. When asked when the fans could expect a new deal for Manning, Condon said, "We'd like to know that as well."

Fantasy Tip: Although there are still some details to work out, Manning is expected to stay with the Giants long term. If his receiving corps stays healthy this year, he should sneak into QB1 territory.

Giants | Odell Beckham feeling better

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:09:12 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said his hamstring is feeling a lot better than it did earlier this offseason. Beckham missed some of the offseason workouts because of a hamstring problem.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham has dealt with hamstring injuries since entering the league but is one of the better receivers in the league when he is healthy. Beckham could be limited during training camp to make sure he is healthy, but he should be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts this season.

Giants | Eli Manning extension sought after

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 06:01:43 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning could have an extension signed by the team before or early in training camp. Manning is set to make $17 million and count $19.25 million against the cap this season.

Fantasy Tip: Either way, Manning is a low-end QB1 option in traditional leagues.

Giants | Shane Vereen will pass protect

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 11:43:11 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen is expected to help the Giants' passing game by protecting the quarterback in addition to catching the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's specialty is catching the football, but the Giants have also been impressed with his ability to pass protect. If he can prove that he's capable of successfully protecting the quarterback, he could see an uptick in playing time, which could increase his fantasy value. Consider him a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Giants | RB roles TBD for Giants

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:26:10 -0700

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams will use training camp to determine their roles in the offense, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson. "I think that as we get closer to games and time for the opener, we will find out more role defining roles for them," Johnson said. "Right now, I try to put them in every situation so I can see what they can do. I try not to say, for instance, 'Shane is only going to run the ball.' I want to see if Shane can catch the ball. I know he can, but I want to see if he can under pressure situations and vice versa. I do that for all of our guys because that way you can kind of find out what they all can do."

Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will receive most of the carries this season and may have the most fantasy value among the running backs. Vereen probably will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues because of his ability to catch the ball. All three running backs should be selected in drafts this season since they will all receive playing time.

Giants | Shane Vereen had success in 2014

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:11:45 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen rushed for at least five yards in nearly 38% of his runs last season, which was 10th best in the NFL. Vereen also had the highest percentage (25.5%) of runs in the NFL that resulted in zero yards or negative yards.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will be more involved in the passing game this season and could see some carries as well. Vereen may be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues but should be a middle-round option in most leagues this season.

Giants | Andre Williams struggled to gain yards

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:48:19 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams gained two or fewer yards in over half of his rushing attempts last season and 23.6% of his carries went for zero yards or negative yards, according to Pro Football Focus. Williams did average 3.1 yards per carry after he was contacted behind the line of scrimmage, which was fourth best in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Williams' role will be determined during training camp, but he will likely be used when Rashad Jennings needs a break and possibly in short-yardage situations. Williams could be a handcuff to Jennings in fantasy leagues this season since he likely would replace Jennings if he was injured.

Giants | Larry Donnell tapered off in 2014

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 05:25:00 -0700

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell scored three of his six touchdowns in Week 4 in 2014 and failed to find the end zone over his final six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Donnell was erratic in the touchdown department but steadily managed to catch passes. His production drop coincided with the emergence of rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Donnell is a shaky TE1 in the deepest of leagues and is best reserved for daily action on FantasyScore.
