  Giants | No decision yet on OBJ's fifth-year option    Sat Apr 22, 11:18 AM

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.

Footballguys view: The Giants should have no problem deciding that Beckham is worth that price tag. Then it would give them more time to work out a long-term deal that likely pays him over $10 million annually as he's one of the best young WRs in the game.

  Giants | Elijah McGuire visiting Giants    Mon Apr 17, 08:31 AM

Louisiana-Lafayette RB Elijah McGuire is visiting the New York Giants Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a dangerous change-of-pace back who can excel in space. He's not a banger between the tackles, but he's good as a receiver and can make defenders miss in the open field. McGuire is likely to be a late-round pick or priority free agent. The Giants have Paul Perkins as a dynamic runner or receiver out of the backfield, but they could be looking for additional depth.

  Giants | David Njoku's visit with NYG canceled    Sun Apr 16, 09:58 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku's scheduled visit with the New York Giants for Monday, April 17, has been canceled, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's no word as to why the visit was cancelled. Njoku should be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and he'd be a great fit for the Giants with their pick at 23rd overall.

  Giants | David Njoku meeting with Giants on Monday    Sun Apr 16, 12:45 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku is set to visit the New York Giants on Monday, April 17.

Footballguys view: The Giants could use a shot in the arm at the tight end position. Njoku reminds many in the scouting community of Greg Olsen (Panthers) because of his size and ability to create mismatches in the red zone. The Giants have the 23rd pick in the first round, and Njoku may be the best option there.

Wisconsin OL Ryan Ramczyk is visiting the New York Giants Tuesday, April 11.

Footballguys view: The Giants are looking for tackle help, and Ramczyk could be their guy. He has to recover from offseason hip surgery, so the rookie may not be ready to compete until the start of training camp. Ramczyk is likely to be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. skips workout    Sun Apr 9, 09:12 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Not a big deal here. He was outstanding last year, and the addition of Brandon Marshall should take even more attention away from him. ODB is a no-brainer WR1 for fantasy owners.

  Giants | O.J. Howard near top of Giants' wish list    Sun Apr 9, 03:14 PM

Alabama TE O.J. Howard and Stanford's Christian McCaffrey are among the prospects the New York Giants hope will fall in their lap with the 23rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: The Giants could use a weapon like Howard. He's a first-round pick and likely the best tight end in a draft class that might be the best in history at the position. Howard is big, fast and physical on the field..and he shines in the biggest moments.

  Giants | OBJ expects to be ready by OTAs    Sun Apr 9, 02:53 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The team needs to do what they can to make a Super Bowl run if at all possible in 2017. Beckham is the centerpiece of their offense, and he's one of the biggest fantasy stars out there. Rinse/repeat when it comes to drafting Beckham for your fantasy team.

  Giants | Johnathan Hankins drawing more interest    Sat Apr 8, 09:07 PM

Free-agent DT Johnathan Hankins (Giants) is drawing interest from another team in addition to the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: The Giants have reportedly offered Hankins a multi-year deal, but he's waiting for a better offer. If there is another team interested, then perhaps he could use the leverage for more money.

  Giants | NYG interested in Zach Cunningham    Sun Apr 2, 04:59 PM

Vanderbilt LB Zach Cunningham has received interest from the New York Giants this offseason.

Footballguys view: Cunningham should be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He's not a thumper, but Cunningham is a sound drag tackler. He primarily stands out because of his ability in coverage. Cunningham can cover from sideline to sideline and has the length to knock incoming passes away.

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes met with New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo Thursday, March 30, and McAdoo attended Mahomes pro day Friday, March 31.

Footballguys view: The Giants need to find the heir apparent behind Eli Manning. If they want Mahomes, they better consider moving up from their no.23 overall pick.

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen reduced his 2017 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million, according to NFL Players Association records.

Footballguys view: The Giants are in some financial straits, so this is likely the only way Vereen--who has had limited impact--was staying with the Giants. We think he has some upside, but really isn't more than a bench player for fantasy.

Free-agent QB Ryan Nassib (elbow) is still rehabbing his elbow injury, and beat writer Brent Axe believes Nassib won't be re-signed by the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: Nassib could find himself with another team once he's able to pass a physical. He's never gotten a chance to really show what he can do as a starter as Nassib has just been backing up Eli Manning. Some team may want to take a chance on him.

  Giants | LeGarrette Blount an option for Giants?    Sun Mar 19, 05:14 PM

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) could be an option for the New York Giants because they are looking for a power running back to complement RB Paul Perkins, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: Blount would make a lot of sense for the Giants. His power-rushing style could soften up defenses and let Perkins serve as a dangerous change-of-pace back. Perkins could carry a larger workload, but he may wear down as the season goes on due to a lack of size.

  Giants | Geno Smith likely to Giants    Fri Mar 17, 11:52 AM

Free-agent QB Geno Smith (Jets) will take a physical with the New York Giants, and he's expected to sign with them Monday, March 20.

Footballguys view: The Giants just re-signed Josh Johnson on Friday, so they would have Smith compete with Johnson to be the backup behind Eli Manning. Smith needed a fresh start because...well...it IS the Jets after all. However, we're not expecting him to do much of anything no matter where he goes to in the NFL.

Pierre-Paul's four-year deal averages about $17 million per year, and it includes $54 million guaranteed. Now the Giants will have some room to keep DT Johnathan Hankins if they can afford it.

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent TE Rhett Ellison agreed to terms with the New York Giants on Thursday, March 9, on a four-year, $18 million contract, including an $8 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: We see this more as a way to shore up a bad offensive line. Ellison can run the ball and catch it as well, but he's a better blocker than an offensive threat. A hybrid fullback/tight end, the Giants could get creative with him though.

Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Jets) agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the New York Giants Wednesday, March 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Marshall still has plenty of game left in the tank, and this is a nice addition for the Giants offense. He'll work opposite Odell Beckham Jr. to provide Eli Manning with another go-to target. The Giants don't have a tight end of note, and that should open up drag routes for Marshall to give him WR2 value for fantasy owners in 2017.
