QUARTERBACKS

Daniel Jones541.9349.53739.121.1310.8462.3327.11.81255.97

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: 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 offseason practices.

WIDE RECEIVERS

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.

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. Back in 2018-2019, Golladay had back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (11) in 2019. As disappointing as last season was, Golladay believes NYG's "very receiver-friendly" offense will help him rebound.

Wan'Dale Robinson: While it seemed like a reach, the Giants new front office and coaching staff liked Robinson enough to use the 43rd overall pick on him. Given their similar hybrid-style profiles, it's possible that Robinson cuts into some of the snaps/targets that would have otherwise gone to Kadarius Toney. NBC's Peter King attended Giants' camp recently and wrote that Robinson "stood out" due to "his versatility and confidence; he could earn the starting slot job."

Sterling Shepard: Shepard tore his Achilles near the end of the 2021 season and continues to recover 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 emerged as the team's most consistent receiver once he hits his stride.

TIGHT ENDS

Jordan Akins17183.31.100033.43

Daniel Bellinger: Bellinger could lead the tight end room in both target share and production as a rookie. Under-utilized at San Diego State, Bellinger tested well at the NFL Combine and has turned heads during offseason workouts.
