Wayne Gallman - RBPosted 4/29/17 10:51am ET
The New York Giants selected Clemson RB Wayne Gallman with the No. 140 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Gallman is quicker than fast and will come in to compete for touches with Shane Vereen and Paul Perkins. The rookie brings size (6-foot, 215 pounds) and a slashing running style to the backfield. He could emerge as a viable fantasy play and deserves attention late in single-year drafts.
Davis Webb - QBPosted 4/28/17 7:46pm ET
The New York Giants selected QB Davis Webb with the 87th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Webb needs time to develop, and he will have just that while learning from Eli Manning. Webb won't play for a while, but with all the young weapons the Giants have on offense, Webb is a player worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 4/27/17 12:58pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. officially had his fifth-year option exercised Thursday, April 27.
Huddle Up: It's the easiest move the Giants will make all offseason. Beckham is arguably one of the three best wide receivers in the NFL and should be selected as such in fantasy drafts. He has averaged 96 catches, 1,374 yards and nearly 12 touchdowns in his first three professional seasons.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 4/27/17 7:51pm ET
The New York Giants selected Mississippi TE Evan Engram with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.
Huddle Up: The Giants has not received a lot of production from the tight end position over the last few years, but Engram can become a solid contributor in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end for 2017 but can be popular in keeper leagues because of his potential to become a No. 1 tight end.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 4/27/17 10:31pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram will be used 'in a variety of ways,' according to head coach Ben McAdoo. GM Jerry Reese also said the team viewed Engram as someone that could 'line up anywhere.'
Huddle Up: Reese called Engram a 'weapon,' and it's not like the G-Men have any bond fide stars outside of Odell Beckham. Even though Sterling Shepard should be improved in Year 2, there will be opportunities for Engram to make an impact. It's unlikely to be enough to hold more than TE2 value, but there's legitimate upside with Engram.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 4/24/17 9:33am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will have his fifth-year option exercised, and an announcement could come this week.
Huddle Up: If there were ever a no-brainer decision to make, this would be one. He has averaged 6.7 catches for 96 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game in his career. He's among the handful in consideration for top wide receiver in fantasy.
Paul Perkins - RBPosted 4/23/17 2:48pm ET
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins said his goal is to become a three-down running back for the Giants.
Huddle Up: Perkins likely is considered the starting running back at this point, but the Giants are believed to be looking for another running back to pair with Perkins. He probably would be used more in the passing game if the Giants added another running back. Perkins probably can be considered a No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 4/22/17 8:18am ET
The New York Giants remain noncommittal on whether or not they intend on exercising the fifth-year option on WR Odell Beckham Jr. worth around $8 million. The deadline to do so is May 3.
Huddle Up: The Giants may just end up waiting until after the draft to take care of it, but there's almost no chance they will pass and give Beckham a chance to hit the open market as an unrestricted free-agent in 2018. He should remain an elite WR1 option in fantasy this season.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 4/9/17 11:53am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (teeth) could not accept QB Eli Manning's invitation to work out at Duke University last week because he had to undergo oral surgery. However, Beckham is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs on April 18.
Huddle Up: Beckham's excuse was a bit weak - he was healthy enough to attend the NCAA national championship basketball game in Phoenix on Monday night but could not make it to Manning's two-day camp on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the upcoming surgery - but it is unlikely to make much of a difference for his fantasy prospects in 2017. While his overall numbers may come down a bit with Brandon Marshall opposite him, OBJ should still remain a top-five receiver in fantasy.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 4/9/17 6:12pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. did not work out with the other skill position players during a two-day workout hosted by QB Eli Manning last week, and Beckham said he didn't attend because of upcoming oral surgery.
Huddle Up: It would have looked better for Beckham to attend with his teammates, but that doesn't change the fact that he is worthy of a first-round pick and should be one of the first receivers off the board.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 4/7/17 6:45pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said WR Brandon Marshall reminds him of former WR Plaxico Burress. 'I was excited when we made that acquisition,' Manning said. 'He's obviously a big target and smart, asks a lot of questions, he's going to pick up the offense quickly.'
Huddle Up: The move to the pass-heavy offense should revive Marshall's fantasy value. He should be able to deliver WR2 production in 2017.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 3/1/17 6:44pm ET
New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo suggested QB Eli Manning deserved his share of the blame for the offense going from a top-10 unit in 2014 and 2015 to one which ranked 25th in 2016. The Giants also committed 27 turnovers, including 20 by Manning (16 interceptions and four fumbles). 'I think Eli needs to do a better job of playing with fast feet, and I think he needs to sit on that back foot in the pocket. We're seeing a lot of man coverage, so the receivers it's going to take a little time for them to get open, so everything may not be rhythmical,' McAdoo said.
Huddle Up: It's very rare for a coach, especially one going into his second year, to make such public comments about a quarterback who has won two Super Bowls, but he isn't wrong. Manning was inaccurate for large parts of the season and appeared to regress in multiple areas despite possessing one elite receiver in Odell Beckham Jr. and a rookie in Sterling Shepard who consistently won in the slot. Manning should be consider a middling QB2 moving forward.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 2/21/17 12:58pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning has two to three quality years left in the eyes of the Giants, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday. Glauber added that New York has already started to point out a decline in Manning's play. Manning is signed through 2019 with salaries of $13 million, $10.5 million and $11.5 million, respectively, over the next three years. His contract also includes a no-trade clause and $5 million roster bonuses due on the third day of the 2018 and 2019 league years.
Huddle Up: Manning is still producing at a high level. He has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons. Nevertheless, age will eventually get the best of him, as it did with his brother. Manning deserves to be drafted in QB2 territory going forward.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 2/14/17 8:17pm ET
The Denver Broncos are 'working' to meet with free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants).
Huddle Up: The Broncos have plenty of salary cap space, which apparently includes enough room for some risks. Cruz would certainly qualify as one, being someone who has looked like a much different player since tearing the patellar tendon in his knee in 2014. While Denver does have a need for a No. 3 receiver, the 30-year-old still has a long road ahead back towards fantasy relevance.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 2/13/17 9:48am ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz will be released Monday, Feb. 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cruz showed some signs of life after two years of debilitating injuries. However, he didn't show the game-breaking ability he had before he tore the patellar tendon in his knee. His final line was 39-586-1, and he'll be 31 in November. He could still be worth a WR5 flyer if he landed in the right situation.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 2/13/17 11:19am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz was officially released Monday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: Cruz didn't do a whole lot for the Giants last season. Lack of production, injuries and age make this a logical move for the Giants. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shephard are now at the helm of the Giants' receiving corps.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 2/13/17 11:11am ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings was released Monday, Feb. 13. Jennings would have counted over $3 million against the salary cap. The release will save the Giants $2.5 million.
Huddle Up: The Paul Perkins era can now officially commence. He figures to be the primary running back with Shane Vereen maintaining his pass-catching role, although Perkins is a capable receiver, too. Players in Perkins' situation could be over drafted, though, so don't go bananas just because of the released of Jennings.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 2/13/17 8:50pm ET
Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is 'probably done,' according to one NFL scout.
Huddle Up: Cruz tore a patellar tendon in 2014, and since then, he hasn't nearly been the same, which was very evident this past season as he registered a career-low 39.1 receiving yards per game over 15 contests. He'll likely get another shot with some receiver-needy club in training camp, but it would take a long road back for him to suddenly be fantasy relevant again.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 2/9/17 4:40pm ET
The New York Giants may be moving on from RB Rashad Jennings, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Even though Jennings is signed through 2017, this move wouldn't be all that surprising, considering he's on the verge of turning 32 years old and is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career in which he averaged a measly 3.3 yards per carry. Plus, the Giants arguably have their running back of the future in Paul Perkins. Either way, Jennings is trending down in a big way no matter who he plays for.
Janoris Jenkins - CBPosted 2/9/17 6:39pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was held to a combined two catches for 18 yards in two meetings with the New York Giants in 2016, and CB Janoris Jenkins said he knows all of Bryant's tendencies. 'Take away the slant and the dig, and when they get in 21 personnel and Dez is inside the number, you take away the corner post, he doesn't have nothing else,' Jenkins said.
Huddle Up: Bryant ran hot and cold all year, but he still finished with eight touchdowns and 796 yards despite missing four games. He brings some risk, but he is well worth the gamble as a WR2.
Shane Vereen - RBPosted 2/9/17 8:02pm ET
New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (arm) is expected to be back with the team in 2017 as long as his rehab from a torn triceps continues to go well, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan.
Huddle Up: If Vereen returns, he should immediately become a factor in the passing game and have flex value in PPR formats.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 1/31/17 6:29am ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said he expects to return to the team in 2017. Jennings has one year left on his deal, and his release would save the club $2.5 million.
Huddle Up: Jennings was phased out at times down the stretch with the emergence of Paul Perkins, and the team could bring in more competition for the committee. Jennings, 32 in March, has little upside outside of a backup role on a fantasy team.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 1/31/17 9:01am ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz wants to play out the final two years of his contract with the team, but he admits the 'ball is in (the Giants') court' when it comes to sticking around. Cruz has a $9.4 million salary cap hit next season and will likely need to take a pay cut for the second straight season in order to stay. Cruz agreed to reduce his base salary from $7.9 million to $1.3 million for the 2016 season.
Huddle Up: Cruz is due a $1 million roster bonus on March 11, so that date could be one to remember in terms of his employment with the Giants. The odds are very strong he will be released sometime before then. Expect New York to address the position in the draft again this year after landing Sterling Shepard last spring.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 1/27/17 5:31pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 15 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles this season.
Huddle Up: Beckham averaged 7.5 catches, 98 yards and one touchdown in the two games against the Eagles. He finished in the top five in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns this season and will continue to be one of the most attractive options in fantasy football. He will be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues and may go in the first round of drafts.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 1/21/17 12:00pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Larry Donnell - TEPosted 1/15/17 6:31pm ET
New York Giants impending free-agent TE Larry Donnell said it would be an 'honor' to continue to play for the organization.
Huddle Up: 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.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 1/12/17 6:17pm ET
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans is eligible for a contract extension this offseason, and beat writer Mark Cook believes the Buccaneers should try to extend Evans before New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. receives a new deal and sets the market.
Huddle Up: Evans has 3,578 yards and 27 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He is a WR1 in any format and a top-five pick in dynasty leagues.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 1/8/17 5:23pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. finished with four catches on 11 targets for 28 yards in a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Beckham dropped multiple passes, including a potential touchdown, and wasn't able to take advantage of a porous Green Bay secondary. It was a bad end to his season, but he should still be viewed as a top-three fantasy receivers in 2017.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 1/8/17 5:51pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 23 of his 44 pass attempts for 299 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Manning's receivers let him down with a few crucial drops, and the Giants couldn't keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and company. Manning is a midrange QB2 heading into 2017.
Paul Perkins - RBPosted 1/8/17 5:45pm ET
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins finished with 10 carries for 30 yards in a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: On the plus side, Perkins led the team in carries and looks to have a shot at opening 2017 as the lead back. He has RB3 potential and is worth keeping an eye on throughout the offseason.
