New York Giants Late August Scouting Report
Here is the second August update for the Giants after their 3rd preseason game against the New York Jets last night. Big Blue lost 31-27 in a spirited affair. Most of their key starters did not play in this game.
QB Daniel Jones has had a good preseason and his training camp showing has gradually improved as well. I believe this offense will suit his specific skill set. This a big prove it year for Jones and given his supporting cast I would rank him QB16-18 for your upcoming fantasy drafts. He is a decent QB2 for fantasy purposes.
RB Saquon Barkley will benefit greatly from the upgraded offensive line. The new offense will get the ball in his hands a variety of ways as well. He will be a solid RB8-10 with upside. For now, RB Matt Breida would be his handcuff but I don't see him staying on the field much given his injury history. There are no other runners that are fantasy worthy.
WR Kenny Golladay has had a very quiet training camp. Due to his onerous contract, the G-Men cannot cut him but would be open to a trade if there are takers out there. Currently, I would consider him a deep flex option, nothing more. Veteran WR Sterling Shepard has been cleared to practice coming off an Achilles injury last year. He is not roster worthy as a result. Young WR Kadarius Toney is an intriguing talent but did not play this preseason due to injuries. He has proven to be brittle so I would consider him to be a middling flex or WR3 play for those willing to gamble. The receiver that interests me the most is rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson. He has an explosive skill set and makes a great dynasty/keeper play. Currently, consider him a WR4 but with considerable upside.
The tight end group for Big Blue is a fantasy wasteland at the moment. Rookie TE Daniel Bellinger is the only possible pick here and is no more than a deep TE2 for your roster.
I love what I have seen from the new Wink Martindale defense. I expect an increase in sacks and turnovers. This group isn't top 12 yet but should be streamable and do have nice upside.
PK Graham Gano is a proven veteran and PK6 in my opinion.He is coming off a big year.
That's it for now, good luck in your drafts!
