QUARTERBACKS

Daniel Jones541.9349.53739.121.1310.8462.3327.11.81255.97
Tyrod Taylor47.129334.41.790.816.691.30.8733.29

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. Going into 2022, there is some optimism if Jones and those around him can stay healthy with Brian Daboll taking over. With exactly 1,000 rushing yards through three seasons, Jones' rushing ability is an underrated aspect of his fantasy profile as well.

Saquon Barkley: Will Barkley outperform his current ADP? I think so, but there are some risks. The biggest risk is durability as Barkley 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, has been moved all over the formation during spring practices.

Kenny Golladay: Golladay set career lows in yards per game (37.2), yards per reception (14.1), catch rate (48.7%) and touchdowns (zero) in 2021. If he and Daniel Jones can stay healthy, however, Golladay has a chance for things to be MUCH better in 2022 with the new offense. Back in 2018-2019, Golladay had back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and he led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (11) in 2019.

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 that he outscores Golladay and leads the receiving corps in fantasy production, but there are some reasons for concern including durability, earlier trade rumors and the high draft capital (second round) used on Wan'Dale Robinson.

Sterling Shepard: Shepard tore his Achilles near the end of the 2021 season and he has recently begun to jog as he recovers from his injury. It's unclear when he'll be ready to go and how long it'll take until he's 100%. Given the rapport that Jones has with Shepard, it wouldn't surprise me if Shepard eventually emerges as the team's most consistent receiver once he hits his stride.

Wan'Dale Robinson: While it seemed like a huge reach, the Giants new front office and coaching staff liked Robinson enough to use the 43rd overall pick on him. More likely to be used as a gadget player initially, he could cut into some of the reps that would otherwise go to Toney given their similar hybrid-style profiles.

TIGHT ENDS

Austin Allen1.920.40.10003.59

Ricky Seals-Jones: Seals-Jones won't put up prolific numbers in Big Blue's offense, but he should lead the tight end room in target share and production. RSJ won't be fantasy-relevant outside of deep TE-premium formats.
