  Giants | Jerrel Jernigan in starting lineup    Tue Sep 2, 01:24 PM

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan has been starting at wide receiver opposite WR Rueben Randle with WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) sidelined. WR Victor Cruz is working out of the slot in three-wide receiver formations. WRs Corey Washington and Preston Parker are the other receivers on the roster.

Footballguys view: Jernigan finished off last season with a bang. In the final two games of the regular season, Jernigan combined for 12 catches, 170 yards and two touchdowns. He should be on your waiver wire speed dial this season.

  Giants | Odell Beckham still not ready    Mon Sep 1, 12:19 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is still not ready to play and may be around three weeks away from returning, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly. Beckham has phenomenal talent, but we haven't been able to see it yet because of this lingering injury. The Giants need to be--and likely will be--cautious with Beckham as he works his way back from this injury.

  Giants | Weston Richburg starting    Mon Sep 1, 11:15 AM

New York Giants OG Weston Richburg is the starting left guard in place of OG Geoff Schwartz (toe).

Footballguys view: Richburg was arguably the best center in this year's draft class. He's an athletic, strong and smart player who can be a sticky blocker at the second level. The Giants will be more than fine with the rookie starting inside.

  Giants | Offense a work in progress    Fri Aug 29, 05:44 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said the team's new offense has room for improvement, but he is not concerned. 'I think we're still trying to get it exactly the way we want it,' Manning said Friday. 'It's a work in progress. There's definitely room for improvement, and that will be a season-long situation, which I think is normal. That's not a bad thing. I think we have to know what we do well and where we need to make our improvements and be harsh on ourselves to make those improvements.'

Footballguys view: We're intrigued by the Ben McAdoo system, but so far this preseason things haven't looked real good. Manning has struggled, and the team has looked out of sync. We'll see if that changes now that the regular season is here.

  Giants | Emmanuel Dieke waived    Thu Aug 28, 06:57 PM

New York Giants DE Emmanuel Dieke (undisclosed) was placed on no-recall waivers from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement and a partially guaranteed contract Thursday, Aug. 28.


  Giants | Several expected not to play    Thu Aug 28, 05:28 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring), WR Trindon Holliday (hamstring), CB Prince Amukamara (groin), OT Charles Brown (shoulder), OT James Brewer (back), OG Geoff Schwartz (toe), OG Brandon Mosley (back) and DT Markus Kuhn are not expected to play Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Well aside from Beckham who the Giants would really love to get on the field this decade, none of this is a concern. Perhaps it would matter more if Eli Manning had a lot more snaps so he and ODBjr could get more in sync with him, but that's not the case. Beckham has little to no value right now - maybe you can argue he has WR6 value with upside if he ever gets on the field - and isn't more than a "hail mary" pick late in your draft, if you can't find better value with more of a chance of paying off.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) will not require surgery and is week to week.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Giants pass blocking, but they will still be without Schwartz to start the season. The new offensive scheme will emphasize getting the ball out quickly, and that becomes even more important with Schwartz sidelined.

  Giants | May use committee at TE    Mon Aug 25, 05:21 PM

The New York Giants may use a committee approach with their tight ends this season based on different situations, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'I really think that there'll be a group of guys that'll play that'll help us in different situations and will be matched up according to the circumstance,' Coughlin said. 'I think that's where it's going to go. I think there's a lot of roles for that spot.' TEs Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Kellen Davis are expected to make the final roster, but no starter has been named.

Footballguys view: The team lacks talent at the tight end position. Fantasy owners were already avoiding this situation...a TEBC means they'll stay away.
