  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. not practicing    Fri Jul 25, 01:56 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not participating in practice Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: It's been this way all week. Our own Andrew Garda is at camp and says that Beckham was catching some balls from a machine and an assistant, so that's a good sign. But he also reports that coach Tom Coughlin already seems to be frustrated with the constant hamstring issues which have plagued Beckham since OTAs. If he can't get on the field, he won't be a factor in this offense. Right now, Victor Cruz is in the slot, with Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan on the outside (Jernigan on three-wide sets only). This could be a productive fantasy offense but it won't matter for Beckham if he doesn't get healthy.

  Giants | Jon Beason aiming for preseason opener    Fri Jul 25, 12:16 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (foot) is hopeful he can play in the preseason opener. He's running in water as part of his rehab.

Footballguys view: Our own Andrew Garda has been attending camp and reports that Beason feels very good and while he knows he's not 100%, feels that he will be soon and knows that the team is making sure he stays on the path and doesn't overdo it. Beason also mentioned that he feels like he is getting a lot out of the film work , especially with Jameel McClain. Beason being out has moved McClain to the MLB position and rookie Devon Kennard to the SAM spot. Kennard will likely move out when Beason is healthy (McClain will shift to the SAM) but clearly he has caught the eye of the coaching staff. This could be a very productive group of linebackers.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul not worried about contract    Fri Jul 25, 12:19 AM

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul said he is not concerned about his contract status even though he is entering the final year of his deal. 'When I'm on the field, family matters and off-the-field issues, I'm not going to worry about it, it's all about my brothers and doing what I do best. When you go home, that's when you think about that stuff,' Pierre-Paul said.

  Giants | Coach getting frustrated with Odell Beckham Jr. injury    Thu Jul 24, 03:43 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is getting frustrated with WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) not being on the practice field due to a hamstring injury. "We need to get the guy back out here and get him back on the field," Coughlin said.

Footballguys view: The rookie does not want to draw the ire of Grandpa Coughlin. Beckham will work hard to get back on the field, but hamstring injuries are tricky. There's only so much the team can do. It sometimes takes a long time to get back from hamstring injuries.

  Giants | No reps for Odell Beckham Jr.    Thu Jul 24, 03:32 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not take any reps in practice Thursday July 24, as he continues to rehab from a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: The team has to watch this situation closely. Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly. Beckham is a fantastic talent, and he could start on the outside opposite Victor Cruz this year.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as starter    Thu Jul 24, 01:26 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is listed as the team's starting running back on the first unofficial depth chart of training camp.

Footballguys view: We are all watching very closely to see if training camp and the preseason give clues to how the Giants will divvy up carries between Jennings, the freshly cleared David Wilson, and rookie fourth-round pick Andre Williams. Our Andrew Garda is covering Giants training camp and will convey his thoughts later this summer.

  Giants | Daniel Fells may have the edge    Thu Jul 24, 09:34 AM

New York Giants TE Daniel Fells has received the first snap in 11-on-11 drills during the team's two days in training camp.

Footballguys view: The Giants tight end situation is a mess, with no proven pass catchers in the bunch. This means more three-wide sets, which could make #12 overall pick Odell Beckham or 2013 late-season star Jerrel Jernigan candidates to see the field a lot this year. "JPP of tight ends" Adrien Robinson is the only name worth watching in this position battle, but the chances that this situation produces a fantasy relevant TE are very low.

  Giants | Three get first-team reps at tight end    Wed Jul 23, 05:15 PM

New York Giants TE Kellen Davis, TE Adrien Robinson and TE Daniel Fells all received first-team reps in practice Wednesday, July 23. All three rotated into the backfield and played some fullback.

Footballguys view: No, no and no. Just say no when it comes to drafting a Giants tight end. Even in super deep dynasty leagues, we're no longer that thrilled by the likes of Robinson.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. dealing with hamstring injury    Wed Jul 23, 04:22 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) tweaked a hamstring in practice Tuesday, July 23, according to general manager Jerry Reese.

Footballguys view: The team will wisely be cautious with the talented rookie here. Beckham is clutch, and he will haul in the big catch when the team needs it the most. He's fearless when running routes over the middle, and Beckham has the speed to be dangerous after the catch. Beckham should eventually win the starting job opposite Victor Cruz.

  Giants | Will Beatty doing more than expected    Wed Jul 23, 03:33 PM

  Giants | Jameel McClain practices    Wed Jul 23, 03:29 PM

New York Giants LB Jameel McClain (foot) participated in the full practice Wednesday, July 23. McClain is sore, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: McClain was carted off yesterday, but he's obviously okay now. Reports indicate that an odd fitting shoe caused the discomfort. So much for athletic footwear.

  Giants | Daniel Fells working with starters    Wed Jul 23, 02:33 PM

New York Giants TE Daniel Fells lined up with the starting offense during team drills Wednesday, July 23.

Footballguys view: This just goes to show you how poor the Giants TE position is. Whether it's Fells, Adrien Robinson, Kellen Davis, Xavier Grimble or Larry Donnell there's very little fantasy value to be had.

  Giants | Odell Beckham on sidelines     Wed Jul 23, 02:13 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not running routes with the rest of the wide receivers during the early portion of practice July 23.

Footballguys view: This is not the way the rookie wanted to start training camp. However, we'd rather the team be cautious with his hamstring injury. Beckham has star potential, and he will compete with Rueben Randle to be the WR2 for the Giants opposite Victor Cruz.

  Giants | Could use three-man rotation at RB    Wed Jul 23, 08:18 AM

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on this battle in camp. Jennings should be the lead back, and he's a fine runner and receiver out of the backfield. Wilson could be the team's change-of-pace back because of his speed and explosiveness. Williams could be the team's banger in short-yardage and goal line situations.

  Giants | Eli Manning's ankle looks fine    Wed Jul 23, 12:13 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) has shown no ill effects during camp from ankle surgery that sidelined him for earlier offseason activities.

Footballguys view: Good news for Manning here. Manning is looking for a bounce-back season in 2014. Playing under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo could help him do that. We like him as a low-end QB2 with upside for your fantasy team.

  Giants | Andre Williams used as goal-line back    Tue Jul 22, 11:53 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams served as the team's goal-line back Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind when drafting players like Rashad Jennings or David Wilson in your fantasy draft. Williams is a two-down thumper with the ability to grind it out between the tackles. He has build-up speed, and we'll see how much playing time he can carve out for himself as a rookie.

  Giants | Tom Coughlin not happy with team's conditioning    Tue Jul 22, 11:44 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was not happy that several players were forced to leave practice with dehydration issues Tuesday, July 22. 'It pisses me off,' Coughlin said. 'After all this [meaning the long off-season program]. Then all of a sudden we're going to have guys that can't stay on the field for more than an hour and a half?'

Footballguys view: There are no Werther's Original that are going to be handed out by Grandpa Coughlin until the team gets into better shape. His image has "softened" in recent years, but Coughlin is still an "old school" coach who gets fired up.

  Giants | Ryan Nassib impresses in drills    Tue Jul 22, 10:30 PM

New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib showed good command of the second-team offense Tuesday, July 22. He has stood out in camp as one of the team's most improved players, according to Dan Salomone of Giants.com.

Footballguys view: Nassib has to beat out Curtis Painter as the primary backup behind Eli Manning if he wants to keep his job with the team. Reports indicate that the Giants are only going to carry two quarterbacks this year.

  Giants | David Wilson looks sharp    Tue Jul 22, 10:23 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) was making quick cuts and looked like one of the most athletic players on the field Tuesday, July 22, according to Dan Salomone of Giants.com.

Footballguys view: Talent was never a question with Wilson. He's quick, fast, agile and plays bigger than his size. Wilson led the NCAA in yards after contact during his final season at Virginia Tech. If healthy, he will compete with Rashad Jennings for touches at the running back position.

  Giants | David Wilson works with second-team    Tue Jul 22, 10:04 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) worked with the second-team offense Tuesday, July 22, one day after being cleared to return following an offseason neck procedure.

Footballguys view: Wilson is working his way back from a serious neck injury. He'll have to compete behind Rashad Jennings until he's ready for a larger role. We should see him worked in as a change-of-pace back (at least) this year.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring), pulled up on the ball while running a deep route Tuesday, July 22, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: The Giants will be cautious here. Beckham is going to be a big part of the offense this year if he's healthy. Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said his hamstring is feeling a lot better. Beckham Jr. previously said his hamstring was at 85 percent.

Footballguys view: Beckham has star potential in the NFL. He's fast, can track passes over his shoulder and Beckham is clutch. When LSU needed a big play, it was usually Beckham who delivered. We're excited to see if Beckham win the WR2 job opposite Victor Cruz this year.


  Giants | Jameel McClain injury update    Tue Jul 22, 03:54 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants LB Jameel McClain (foot) was carted off from practice Tuesday, July 22, due to a sore foot. The soreness may have been caused by his shoe, but the team brought him in because the soreness was in the metatarsal area.

  Giants | Four returning punts in practice    Tue Jul 22, 01:29 PM

New York Giants WR Trindon Holliday, WR Odell Beckham Jr., WR Victor Cruz and WR Rueben Randle all are returning punts in practice Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Holliday should be the primary return man for the Giants this year. He's dangerous with the ball in his hands--for both teams. Holliday fell out of favor with the Broncos because of fumbling problems. If he can hang onto the rock, he's the best option for the Giants. Beckham, Cruz and Randle are going to be heavily involved in the passing game. They don't need to risk injury to any of these guys with playing time on special teams.

  Giants | Victor Cruz getting comfortable with new offense    Tue Jul 22, 12:23 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he is at an eight out of 10 in comfort with the new offense.

Footballguys view: Cruz is a WR1 for fantasy purposes. He failed to produce big numbers in the Kevin Gilbride system last year, and Cruz finished the season as the 28th-best fantasy WR in 2013. Cruz should be re-energized under new OC Ben McAdoo. The potential to be a top-10 receiver is there, making Cruz a value play at his current ADP of WR14 (4.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning didn't run with the team at training camp Monday, July 21, and threw on the side with coaches instead. Manning said that not running had nothing to do with his offseason ankle surgery.

Footballguys view: The Giants will be cautious with Manning in camp. Our very own Andrew Garda is credentialed for Giants camp, and he'll be keeping us up to date on what's going on. Manning is looking to bounce back this year after a disappointing 2013 season. Playing under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo will help him do that.
