QUARTERBACKS

Daniel Jones541.9349.53766.221.4110.8462.3327.11.81258.18

Daniel Jones: Not only did Jones miss six games last season, but the team's top pass catchers missed plenty of time as well. Kenny Golladay (three), Kadarius Toney (seven), Evan Engram (two), Sterling Shepard (10), Darius Slayton (four) and Saquon Barkley (four) all missed multiple games in 2021. There is some optimism heading into 2022 if Jones and those around him can stay healthy with Brian Daboll taking over the offense. With exactly 1,000 rushing yards through three seasons, Jones' rushing ability is an underrated aspect of his fantasy profile as well.

Saquon Barkley: Barkley's biggest risk is his durability as he has missed a minimum of three games every season except for his rookie campaign (2018). Over the past two seasons, he has averaged only 63.3 scrimmage yards, 3.5 yards per carry and 4.9 yards per target with a total of four touchdowns in 15 games. That said, Barkley, who had 91 catches and a league-high 2,028 scrimmage yards as a rookie, should be more efficient with an improved offensive line and better coaching staff. Provided his health cooperates, he could vastly outperform his current ADP.

Kadarius Toney: Toney missed much of his rookie season (seven games) with a variety of ailments, but he flashed at times when he was on the field. It's certainly possible, perhaps likely, that he leads the receiving corps in fantasy production, but can he stay healthy?

Wan'Dale Robinson: While it seemed like a reach in April, the Giants new front office and coaching staff liked Robinson enough to use the 43rd overall pick on him. When NBC's Peter King attended Giants' camp, he wrote that Robinson "stood out" due to "his versatility and confidence." Given the concerns with the team's other three top receivers, Robinson could turn out to become a draft-day bargain for fantasy managers.

Kenny Golladay: Golladay set career lows in yards per game (37.2), yards per reception (14.1) and catch rate (48.7%) with zero touchdowns in 2021. Back in 2018-2019, Golladay had back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns while leading the NFL in receiving touchdowns (11) in 2019. ESPN's Jordan Raanan recently wrote that Golladay was "running routes this summer with the stiffness of a mannequin."

Sterling Shepard: Shepard tore his Achilles near the end of the 2021 season and although he returned to practice at the end of August, it's still unclear whether he'll be ready to go Week 1 against the Titans. Given the rapport that Jones has previously developed with Shepard, it wouldn't surprise me if he performed as the team's most consistent receiver at some point this season.

TIGHT ENDS

Tommy Hudson16.3174.31.100032.18
Chris Myarick5.557.40.400010.89

Daniel Bellinger: Entering his rookie season atop the depth chart, Bellinger should lead the tight end room in both target share and production in 2022. The former Aztec was under-utilized as a receiver at San Diego State, but he's an athletic tight end (4.63 40-yard dash at the combine) that could become a viable streamer for those in TE-premium formats.
