  Giants | Big contract coming for Eli Manning?    Sat Jun 27, 10:17 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will likely work out a new deal with the team, according to his agent Tom Condon, but it won't come at a discount. 'The quarterbacks always get done,' Condon said. 'And the Giants are not a skittish team. So it's not one of those things where they get nervous or they jump around or anything like that. You know you're going to go in and it's going to get done. I'm sure at the appropriate time it'll happen.'

Footballguys view: We just can't see Manning playing with another team. Of course, we felt the same way about his brother Peyton and look what happened. We have a feeling the two sides find a way to get a deal done.

  Giants | Victor Cruz continues to make progress    Fri Jun 26, 08:49 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will have to participate in a mandatory conditioning drill at the start of training camp and believes he could pass it now. Cruz still has not worked with QB Eli Manning on route running or timing drills.

Footballguys view: We've heard nothing but great things about Cruz this offseason. His recovery seems to be on track, and the team is hopeful he can be ready for the start of the regular season. Expect Cruz to be limited in training camp as they ease him back into action.

  Giants | Eli Manning looks comfortable    Wed Jun 24, 12:15 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning looked more comfortable with the offense this offseason than he did at any point last offseason.

Footballguys view: That makes a lot of sense. This is the second year of working in the Ben McAdoo system, so we're certain Manning is much more comfortable than he was last season. In 2014, Manning finished as the 8th-best fantasy football quarterback. This year, Manning could finish again as a top-10 passer--perhaps even top-5 although that's only something he's done once (2005) in his career.

  Giants | Shane Vereen sees time in red zone    Wed Jun 24, 12:13 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen received snaps in the red zone during offseason workouts and was used all over the field as a receiver out of the backfield.

Footballguys view: Vereen is going to be a playmaker for the Giants offense. He'll work as a change-of-pace back behind starter Rashad Jennings, but he could do more if called upon. His current ADP is RB31 (6.09) in 12-team PPR leagues, and Vereen could outperform that spot--even in a limited role.

  Giants | Rueben Randle draws praise    Wed Jun 24, 10:44 AM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was the best receiver on the field by a wide margin during spring practices, in the opinion of beat writer Jordan Ranaan. Randle consistently made catches downfield and in traffic.

Footballguys view: Please note that Odell Beckham Jr. missed plenty of practice time nursing a minor hamstring injury. Also note that Victor Cruz isn't back from his serious knee injury yet. It's good that Randle is making the most of his opportunity, but he's WR3 for the Giants when those other two are healthy.

  Giants | Landon Collins signs    Fri Jun 19, 11:00 AM

New York Giants SS Landon Collins signed his rookie four-year deal Friday, June 19.

Footballguys view: Collins is decisive as a run-defender, and he arrives at the ball with natural violence. He's an intimidating presence who can star playing close to the line of scrimmage. Collins is a smart defender who puts himself in the right position as a coverage player, but he needs to make better plays on the ball.

  Giants | Ereck Flowers signs    Thu Jun 18, 04:56 PM

New York Giants first-round pick OT Ereck Flowers signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, June 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: We like Flowers' upside as a right tackle, but he's going to be thrown to the wolves at left tackle this season. The Giants lost left tackle Will Beatty to a pectoral injury that should keep him out of action until November or December. Flowers is an aggressive run-blocker (think Orlando Franklin), but his pass-protection is a serious work in progress. Eli Manning better plan on getting rid of the ball ASAP.

  Giants | Victor Cruz confident in health    Wed Jun 17, 08:40 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is hopeful he'll avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list and is confident he could pass the pre-training camp conditioning test right now. 'I'm trying to listen to my body and how it feels,' Cruz said. 'By late July, early August, I should be somewhere around 100%.'

Footballguys view: Nothing but good reports about Cruz leading up to his point. Entering training camp, the Giants are likely to ease the veteran back into action. We're not even sure that Cruz will play in any preseason games. Monitor his progress during camp.

  Giants | Odell Beckham done until July    Wed Jun 17, 08:35 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) won't practice again until training camp opens in July.

Footballguys view: This is the wise move for the Giants. Beckham was limited to straight-line running Tuesday, June 16, but he's done for organized team activities.

  Giants | Victor Cruz progressing    Tue Jun 16, 05:12 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he is progressing well as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

Footballguys view: We've heard nothing but good things about Cruz as he returns from his knee injury. Keep an eye on his progress as the Giants get to (and through) training camp.

  Giants | Odell Beckham runs at minicamp    Tue Jun 16, 03:53 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did some light running on the sideline during minicamp Tuesday, June 16.

Footballguys view: Beckham had hamstring problems that lingered at the beginning of last season and forced him to miss the first four games of the season. The Giants are wisely being cautious with their young superstar as he deals with more hamstring problems.

  Giants | Unlikely to pursue Evan Mathis    Mon Jun 15, 08:11 AM

Free-agent OG Evan Mathis (Eagles) will not be pursued by the New York Giants unless his asking price drops. The Giants will have less than $5 million in salary-cap space left after their last two draft picks are signed.

Footballguys view: The price tag for Mathis is going to keep some teams (like the Giants) out of the running. Mathis had a cap number of $6.5 million (with $2 million in dead money) this year before the Eagles cut him. Considered one of the best guards in the game, Mathis could sign a contract with a new team that pays him a similar amount.

  Giants | Larry Donnell still on the upswing    Sat Jun 13, 09:09 PM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (Achilles') missed a good chunk of organized team activities (OTAs) due to an Achilles' problem. If the injury lingers it could open the door for TEs Jerome Cunningham and Adrien Robinson to see more responsibilities in the passing game. However, long term the team feels Donnell is still on the upswing, or has plenty of upside.

Footballguys view: We're not going to hold our breath for guys like Cunningham--and certainly not for Robinson. Donnell is the guy for fantasy owners to monitor here. We'll see what he can do for an encore in 2015 after last year's 63-catch, 623-yard, six touchdown season. Consider Donnell a low-end TE2 with upside if he's healthy.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to be most used RB?    Sat Jun 13, 01:53 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still expected to lead the Giants in touches, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, despite the acquisition of RB Shane Vereen this offseason. Graziano said the Giants will give Jennings the ball as long as he can stay healthy.

Footballguys view: We believe that Jennings will be the main man for the Giants provided that he can stay healthy. Vereen is merely a change-of-pace back who could wear down with a larger workload. Second-year back Andre Williams is a banger who is best suited as a short-yardage and goalline back.

  Giants | Eli Manning focusing on arm strength    Fri Jun 12, 09:26 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning spoke with baseball trainers to develop a program designed to keep his arm strong throughout the 2015 season. 'I think I got a good plan that should keep it strong the whole season,' Manning said. 'It feels live, it feels like it is strong, definitely has some more pop on it, and I think that's the goal, just to keep it there for the whole season.'

Footballguys view: Manning's arm is going to get a workout throwing to superstar Odell Beckham Jr. Throw in a healthy Victor Cruz--plus Rueben Randle--and you have the makings of a formidable passing game. Manning is a low-end QB1 who could have some big weeks for DFS players depending on the matchup.

  Giants | Eli Manning believes in Rueben Randle    Thu Jun 11, 11:57 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle can be a 'dominant receiver' and will have a 'big year' in 2015, QB Eli Manning said Thursday, June 11.

Footballguys view: Randle's production will hinge on how healthy Victor Cruz is this season. Last year, Randle started 13 games with Cruz injured. Randle posted career highs in targets (127), receptions (71), and yards (938). We could see Randle start on the outside opposite Odell Beckham Jr. with Cruz moving to the slot full time. Randle doesn't have a high ceiling, but he could be a valuable player as a bye-week filler.

  Giants | Shane Vereen featured in passing game    Wed Jun 10, 04:35 PM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen caught pass after pass in organized team activities, particularly in the red zone.

Footballguys view: There have been quite a few positive stories about Vereen coming out of Giants minicamp. We always take OTA "hot takes" with a grain of salt, but we also look for a constant rhythm to the reporting coming out of camp. Vereen is a player of note. He'll work as a part-time back for the Giants behind starter Rashad Jennings. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues should note what he's been doing this offseason and look at him as a low-end RB3 with upside.

  Giants | Eli Manning throwing better    Wed Jun 10, 04:24 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has shown improvements this offseason in second-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense. Manning has extremely limited the amount of interceptions he's thrown compared to last offseason.

Footballguys view: The second year in an offense will usually be more productive than the first. Manning sounds more comfortable in the McAdoo system, and he certainly has big-time weapons around him in the passing game. The Giants will be even better off if Victor Cruz (knee) can return to form in 2015.

  Giants | Shane Vereen impresses    Tue Jun 9, 10:28 AM

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen has impressed in organized team activities and caught an abundance of passes out of the backfield. Vereen figures to be a big part of the offense.

Footballguys view: Vereen is going to carve out a role in the Giants backfield this year. He can serve as a change-of-pace back behind Rashad Jennings. Second-year pro Andre Williams is a two-down thumper who could get some short-yardage and goal-line work. Vereen could get Jennings some rest as a part-time runner and receiver out of the backfield.

  Giants | No contract talks with Eli Manning    Tue Jun 9, 01:48 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning enters the final year of a six-year contract, and he said Monday, June 8, that the team has not talked to him about a new contract. "No discussions yet," Manning said. "I don't know if there will be or not."

Footballguys view: Meh, we're not worried about this. Manning should sign a contract extension with the Giants in the near future. It would be strange to see them let their two-time Super Bowl championship quarterback hit the open market, especially when they don't have a QB of the future groomed behind him. Manning could end his career with the Giants.

  Giants | Odell Beckham continues to nurse injury    Mon Jun 8, 05:27 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. missed organized team activities again Monday, June 8, as he continues to deal with a right hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: No hurries, no worries here for Grandpa Coughlin and company. Coughlin did not say whether or not Beckham would be able to participate in minicamp next week.

  Giants | Victor Cruz on sidelines    Mon Jun 8, 11:52 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is working on the sidelines in practice Monday, June 8.

Footballguys view: All reports have been positive about Cruz during his recovery. We're unlikely to see him do much in training camp or the preseason as the team prepares him for the start of the regular season. That's the target date until we hear anything different. His current ADP is WR29 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Odell Beckham working on side    Mon Jun 8, 11:51 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is working on the sidelines in practice Monday, June 8.

Footballguys view: Beckham had hamstring issues last year which prevented him from getting on the field in the first month of the season. He got on the field in Week 5 and dominated. In 12 games, Beckham caught 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns. This may only be the tip of the iceberg. If Beckham can play the entire season, he could break records. The team is going to take it easy on him as he deals with a minor hamstring injury now.

  Giants | Eli Manning comfortable with offense    Sun Jun 7, 10:57 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he understands the concepts and feels more comfortable with offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system this year after offseason ankle surgery limited his reps last season.

Footballguys view: A more comfortable Manning is nothing but a good thing for the Giants. We know he'll have incredible targets around him in the passing game--especially if Victor Cruz (knee) comes back healthy this season. Look for Manning to be a low-end QB1 for fantasy owners.

  Giants | Looking out for OL help    Fri Jun 5, 06:52 AM

The New York Giants continue to look out for help on the offensive line. With OT William Beatty (chest) out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, sources indicate the team wants to have some depth.

Footballguys view: Look for the team to perhaps sign Jake Long at some point. The former No. 1 overall pick is currently recovering from yet another knee injury, and he's coming off back-to-back seasons with ACL tears. If healthy (huge if), Long is the best player on the open market at left tackle. It has been seven months since Long underwent surgery on his ACL, so teams might be waiting to sign him until he's closer to 100 percent healthy.

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (Achilles') is in a walking boot as he recovers from Achilles' tendinitis. Donnell said he's taking a day-by-day approach to the injury, but reiterated that it's not serious.

  Giants | Odell Beckham injury not as serious    Wed Jun 3, 06:39 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s (hamstring) hamstring injury is not on the same injury he faced last offseason. Beckham himself said the injuries can't even be compared. Beckham has recently been limited at organized team activities for precautionary reasons.

Footballguys view: The Giants are being smart here. A hamstring injury knocked him out of action as a rookie, but Beckham got on the field in Week 5 and dominated. In one season, Beckham has made himself a superstar in the NFL. Some think his rookie season could be his career best, but we disagree. So long as he stays healthy, the skies the limit for this truly incredible talent.

  Giants | Larry Donnell injury not serious    Mon Jun 1, 02:33 PM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants TE Larry Donnell's (Achilles') tendonitis is not serious and he should be OK in the next few days.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (Achilles') has been dealing with tendinitis in his Achilles' tendon, which is why he is wearing a boot.

  Giants | Odell Beckham limited Monday    Mon Jun 1, 01:28 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) was limited during organized team activities Monday, June 1, because of hamstring soreness. Head coach Tom Coughlin said holding Beckham out was precautionary.

Footballguys view: The Giants did the right thing here. There's no need to worsen Beckham's hamstring injury, so expect the second-year superstar to be limited until his hamstring is closer to 100 percent.

  Giants | More snaps for Larry Donnell?    Fri May 29, 10:22 PM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell has been working on improving as a blocker during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Donnell had a solid season last year, and he's looking to build off that for this season. It's good that he's becoming a better blocker, but we'd like to see him get better fight for the ball on contested passes. Donnell has the ability to be a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners this year.

  Giants | Odell Beckham expects more attention    Fri May 29, 06:12 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he expects to receive more attention from defenses this upcoming season but does not think it will work since the team has a lot of offensive weapons.

Footballguys view: Beckham is correct. His fantastic rookie season is going to attract a lot of attention from opposing defensive coordinators. Beckham is going to get double-teamed on a regular basis, but the Giants will be creative when finding ways to get Beckham the ball. His current ADP is WR2 (1.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Jake Long visited NYG    Thu May 28, 08:49 PM

Free-agent OT Jake Long visited the New York Giants Thursday, May 28. The Giants are likely to have interest in Long after the injury to OT William Beatty (chest).

Footballguys view: Long is about seven months removed from another ACL surgery. He's coming off back-to-back seasons cut short by knee injuries. The former number-one overall pick wants to continue playing, and a few teams (like the Giants) could show interest.

  Giants | Victor Cruz talks health    Thu May 28, 10:58 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he is around 80% recovered from tearing his right patella tendon Wednesday, May 27. Cruz has been running straight-line routes for approximately two weeks and hasn't experienced any pain or swelling.

Footballguys view: With a current ADP of 6.05, Cruz is a pretty big value if you believe he will be 100 percent by the season. We won't really get a good look at him until training camp, so patience is needed when considering Cruz. In Year Two of the Ben McAdoo offense, the Giants have a chance to put up some impressive numbers. They need Cruz to help that though, so this bears very close monitoring.

  Giants | William Beatty undergoes surgery    Thu May 21, 11:49 AM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants OT William Beatty (chest) underwent successful surgery Thursday, May 21, to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty will need approximately five to six months of recovery time.

Footballguys view: The Giants had massive injury issues along the offensive line last season and this isn't going to help fans forget it. Beatty being out until sometime in November is a blow. However, with the Giants in the second year of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's up-tempo offense, they might be able to overcome. If Eli Manning can get the ball out of his hands quickly and not overthink the plays, the offense could get by and be effective.

  Giants | NYG receivers catch endorsement    Wed May 20, 09:18 PM

New York Giants WRs Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle all received strong endorsements from ex-Giants WR Stephen Baker Tuesday, May 19. 'I think [the Giants offense] will be a matchup nightmare, and I love the diversity of the receivers,' said Baker. 'You've got little Cruz, who can shake and bake in the middle, then you've got Beckham on the outside, who's just explosive, and then you have Randle, I consider him a smooth receiver, when he catches a pass, he just looks smooth. I like him as a third down possession-type guy,' Baker said.

Footballguys view: Baker, a former Giants receiver who won a Super Bowl with them in 1990, is speaking the truth. We may not have yet seen the best from Beckham, and he's got superstar potential in this league. If Cruz can come back healthy, he'll be able to make plays in the passing game. Even Randle has become more consistent as a pro. The Giants may have O-Line problems, but they do not have WR problems.

  Giants | William Beatty out a while    Wed May 20, 03:50 PM

Updating previous reports, New York Giants OT William Beatty's (pectoral) torn pectoral will require surgery and Beatty's recovery time is expected to be around five months. Beatty suffered the injury Tuesday, May 19. It was previously reported that Beatty suffered the injury Wednesday, May 20.

Footballguys view: This means Beatty will likely begin the season on the PUP list. He'll be able to come back some time around November, and the Giants could sure use him. This injury is devastating to an offensive line that has struggled with poor play in recent years. Rookie Ereck Flowers (better suited as a right tackle) and left guard Justin Pugh could compete to take Beatty's place up front at left tackle.

  Giants | William Beatty injury update    Wed May 20, 03:25 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants OT William Beatty (shoulder) tore his pectoral while lifting weights Wednesday, May 20, according to a source, and will undergo surgery. One of OTs Ereck Flowers or Marshall Newhouse will likely assume Beatty's role.

Footballguys view: This is a huge blow for the Giants. Beatty had a bounce-back season in 2014, and he did a good job of protecting Eli Manning's blind side. Flowers, a first-round pick this year, is better suited to play on the right side of the offensive line. With surgery, Beatty is expected to miss most of the regular season, but he could return some time in November. He's likely to be placed on the PUP list to begin the season.

  Giants | Victor Cruz not rushing rehab    Wed May 13, 12:28 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he will not rush his rehab in order to participate in offseason workouts and minicamps.

Footballguys view: Cruz has a good chance to be ready for training camp, but we feel the team will ease him back into action at that time. He is feeling good and has not reported swelling in the knee even after workouts. All signs are pointing to Cruz being available when the Giants hit the field in Week 1 of the regular season.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) has begun making cuts in his routes, and he labeled himself about 75-80% in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon.

Footballguys view: The Giants will keep monitoring Cruz closely as he returns from his serious knee injury. The fact that he's making cuts already and we're in mid-May is a good sign. They won't ask him to do much during minicamp and OTAs. Even when the team gets to training camp, Cruz should be eased back into action. The plan is to have him available in Week 1 of the regular season even if he's not quite 100 percent.

Alabama SS Landon Collins was selected 33rd overall by the New York Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1. The Giants traded up with the Tennessee Titans to make the pick.

Footballguys view: A great move for the Giants who get a hard-hitting aggressive tempo setter for the secondary. The Giants did a good job seeing value drop and jumping on it.


  Giants | Ereck Flowers selected ninth overall    Thu Apr 30, 09:06 PM

Miami (Fla.) OT Ereck Flowers was selected ninth overall by the New York Giants in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Flowers will eventually be their left tackle, but this was super-early for a guy who is a run blocker first and still working on pass blocking - much like Greg Robinson last year. What is troubling is GM Jerry Reese said he thought Flowers was a better pass blocker than a run blocker which is the opposite of most analysis.

  Giants | Release Michael Cox    Mon Apr 27, 02:33 PM

New York Giants RB Michael Cox was waived Monday, April 27.

Footballguys view: Cox was a seventh-round pick for the Giants in 2013, and he started one game in two seasons. The Giants had to clean up a log-jam at running back, and Cox was the guy to go. Earlier this year in free agency, they added Shane Vereen to play as a change-of-pace back behind Rashad Jennings and alongside Andre Williams.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is not worried about his contract situation and that the two sides have not discussed an extension.
