  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. snags ROY honors    Sat Jan 31, 10:05 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was named the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press Saturday, Jan. 31.

  Giants | Prince Amukamara on track    Fri Jan 30, 03:53 PM

New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) is on track to in his recovery from a torn biceps. Amukamara could be cleared for full activity by the beginning of March and would be ready for the start of minicamp and training camp. 'I feel good. No worries at all. I'll be set to go,' Amukamara said.

Footballguys view: A good sign for the young cornerback here. Amukamara is likely to be limited in minicamp as the team doesn't want to re-aggravate the injury. However, if all goes well, we'd expect Amukamara to be a full participant for training camp.

  Giants | Odell Beckham to rest this offseason    Mon Jan 26, 01:45 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he'll need to shut himself down this offseason in order to enter 2015 fully healthy and in great shape. He said he had tears to his semitendinosus and bicep belly of his hamstring this season. 'It's still not right, I'm still working on it,' Beckham said. 'I'm trying to get it 100 percent for next year.'

Footballguys view: Beckham said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed. He was still able to put up incredible numbers even though he missed the first four games of the season. Beckham will get a boost with Victor Cruz back on the field in 2015. Defenses won't be able to contend with both, and it should help the Giants have a more robust passing game.

  Giants | Odell Beckham said he was never healthy    Mon Jan 26, 11:14 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed.

Footballguys view: Wow, just wow. Beckham was phenomenal during his rookie season, and we're excited about what the future holds with this top prospect. He missed four games to start the season, but Beckham still finished with 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.

  Giants | Met with two WRs    Thu Jan 22, 05:07 AM

WR's Sammie Coates and Devin X. Smith met with the New York Giants front-office staff at the Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: Anyone the Giants bring on will have a shot at depth at the very least. We don't know what Victor Cruz will look like next year but at the end of the day, he and Odell Beckham Jr. have precious little behind them so there is room for new blood. Coates is incredibly fast and has the strength to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage. Smith is a vertical threat who can make difficult catches seem routine.

  Giants | Could Add RB Depth     Wed Jan 21, 10:16 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.

Footballguys view: This move wouldn't surprise us. Behind Jennings, the Giants will have second-year pro Andre Williams. He's your classic banger between the tackles, but he's not a receiving threat. This is a good RB class in the draft, and the Giants could look for some help there.

  Giants | Chris Boswell, Ricky Stanzi sign    Wed Jan 7, 05:39 PM

The New York Giants signed PK Chris Boswell (Texans) and QB Ricky Stanzi (Texans) to Reserve/Futures contracts Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Stanzi has a big arm but little accuracy. He's bounced around the league, and he's not a player to monitor even if you're in a super super deep dynasty league.

  Giants | Odell Beckham named to Pro Bowl    Wed Jan 7, 01:39 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was named to the Pro Bowl Wednesday, Jan. 7, replacing Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson.

  Giants | Perry Fewell fired    Wed Jan 7, 10:44 AM

New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has been fired Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: While the Giants offense has gotten better under OC Ben McAdoo, the defense had gotten worse under Fewell. The team needs to go in a different direction to help that side of the ball.

  Giants | Giants sign 11 to futures deals    Mon Dec 29, 05:04 PM

The New York Giants signed free-agent OT Michael Bamiro (Giants), WR Julian Talley (Giants), WR Juron Criner (Giants), WR Chris Harper (Giants), DE Jordan Stanton (Giants), CB Thomas Gordon (Giants), CB Josh Victorian (Giants), FB Nikita Whitlock (Giants), LB Unai Unga (Giants), CB Bennett Jackson (Giants) and P Robert Malone (Redskins) to futures contracts Monday, Dec. 29. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep fantasy leagues should be monitoring guys like Harper and Criner. Harper is built like a TE and has good concentration. Criner has a skill set reminiscent of Marques Colston, although on a much lower level. Both are longshots worth keeping an eye on.

  Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul could receive tag    Sun Dec 28, 09:52 PM

New York Giants impending free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul could receive the franchise tag this offseason if the team is not able to sign him to a new deal.

Footballguys view: Pierre-Paul would get a massive deal on the open market, so the Giants have to tag him unless they are willing to pony up probably the largest defensive player contract in NFL history.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. does it again    Sun Dec 28, 06:12 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 12 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. Beckham finished the 2014 season with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games.

Footballguys view: Beckham was the fantasy MVP of the second half, and we wouldn't blame you if you took him #1 overall next year. It's fair to say that we haven't seen a rookie wide receiver play like this since Randy Moss.


  Giants | Rueben Randle has big first half    Sun Dec 28, 02:46 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle caught five passes for 134 yards in the first half of the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: Randle had a disappointing 2014, but he has reversed course in a big way in the last two games and perhaps salvaged his future playing in this now very exciting pass offense for the Giants.

  Giants | Big game on tap for Eli Manning?    Sat Dec 27, 08:58 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has thrown for a combined 542 yards and seven touchdowns in his last two home starts against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Manning, Odell Beckham, and Rueben Randle should be able to destroy the Eagles absymal pass defense today, and all are great daily fantasy plays.

  Giants | Andre Williams expected to play    Sat Dec 27, 12:21 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: We think Rashad Jennings will play, and have him as an RB3 which impacts Williams' upside. We have Williams as an RB5/RB6 this week against an Eagles team which is desperate to go out on a good note, even if they are deflated because they flamed out and missed the playoffs.

New York Giants LB Devon Kennard (toe) did not practice Friday, Dec. 26, and has been ruled out. RB Andre Williams (shoulder) was limited in pratice and is questionable. LB Paul Hazel (hamstring) and LB Jameel McClain (knee) both were limited in practice and are probable.

Footballguys view: Williams could get some touches against the Eagles, but look for Orleans Darkwa to get some touches in an attempt to start his bid to win a 2015 roster spot early, along with the return of Rashad Jennings.

  Giants | Victor Cruz hopes to be ready for camp    Wed Dec 24, 01:36 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp next season but will listen to the doctors. Cruz believes his leg could be stronger than it was before the injury.

Footballguys view: It will be great to see Cruz back out on the field for the Giants. With the emergence of rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. the Giants will have a great 1-2 punch next year. Expect the team to ease Cruz back in the lineup as he returns from this severe injury.

  Giants | More records for Odell Beckham    Sun Dec 21, 09:11 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted eight receptions for 148 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 16 game against the St. Louis Rams. He set a franchise rookie record with his 10th and 11th touchdown grabs, and he shattered another rookie mark for receptions while topping 1,000 yards. Beckham has had at least 90 yards receiving in eight consecutive games and could tie the NFL record of nine straight by Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Irvin in 1995.

Footballguys view: Beckham may well be the #1 wide receiver and even player off of the board in PPR leagues next year. There is no sign that he will slow down, even pulling Eli Manning to fantasy respectability with him.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Friday, Dec. 19, and will not play in the team's Week 16 game.

Footballguys view: There's no sign that Jennings will play Sunday against the Rams after aggravating his ankle injury last week. Andre Williams will get the start, but he hasn't been very effective, and the Rams are a tough matchup in St. Louis.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings has not done any running    Thu Dec 18, 03:50 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) has not been able to do any running this week, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Jennings to play this weekend as he was barely on the field last week. We'd avoid him completely this week even if he plays. Andre Williams will get the carries and can be an OK RB3, although a tough St. Louis run defense dampens his prospects. Aside from Week 14, his efforts haven't exactly been much to write home about either.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss practice    Wed Dec 17, 11:18 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: We appreciate Jennings effort, but it doesn't seem like this ankle injury is getting much better. He's tried to play each of the last two weeks, but Jennings doesn't look right. Jennings has three carries for eight yards over that time. We could see Andre Williams with a much larger role once again in Week 16.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings' status uncertain    Mon Dec 15, 05:06 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game,' Coughlin said. 'Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet.'

Footballguys view: Jennings is just too banged up for fantasy owners to rely on. If he is able to play in Week 16 we can't recommend him as anything more than a desperation flex play at this point.

  Giants | Rueben Randle benched    Sun Dec 14, 09:32 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was benched for at least the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, and it might have been longer had WR Kevin Ogletree (head) not suffered a head injury.

Footballguys view: The headline should read; Rueben Randle benched (AGAIN). We've seen this before with Randle this season. He's not a fantasy factor for championship fantasy games in Week 16, and Randle has little dynasty value.
