FF: NYG Wide Receivers Edition

GiantTuff1 : 10/10/2017 9:06 am
Alright..

We know the Giants are 0-5 and got hit with an ungodly flurry of ankle injuries that will have our Giants competing for a top draft pick and potential new GM and coach shortly.

But, where there is disaster, there is also opportunity for some young upstarts.

Roger Lewis
Rudolph
King
Eagan

Who in the new lot of Giants wideouts are you putting your money on from a fantasy perspective to be the cream of this crop?

Let's discuss.
Yes opportunity is there

however after watching this offense perform without beckham in the past, I would say that opportunity is limited at best!
Brutal schedule  
WillVAB : 10/10/2017 9:15 am : link
Do you even want to waste a roster spot on one of these guys with the remaining schedule? Evan Engram seems like the only viable play weekto week.
I can't believe in one game, really one half, we have 3 WR season  
PatersonPlank : 10/10/2017 9:17 am : link
ending ankle injuries and 1 multi-week ankle injury.
I would go with the guy who showed

good hands and decient route running. That would be Rudolph.
If your FF season is depending on one of those guys to produce

you may want to consider not playing FF anymore.

It's not luckily, however I'm considering a waiver claim on one of these guys. I just feel that someone has to surprise from this group.

I'm sort of feeling Rudolph too as a poster above mentioned.
Only 2 Giants I would want right now  
Keith : 10/10/2017 1:21 pm : link
are Engram and Gallman. Engram should see an uptick in targets and Gallman has shown some ability. I'd prefer both to be backups, but I wouldn't touch any of the WR's.
are we getting any faster  
Ron Johnson : 10/10/2017 1:32 pm : link
at least?

Under other circumstances I would agree with you. But, McAdoo has shown a reluctance to use TEs in general and has yet to use Engram in the methods he was drafted for, including in a game where WRs dropped like flies. I also wouldn't count on Gallman getting the majority of carries, as a split with Darkwa seems what will be.
I actually think Engram's production  
allstarjim : 10/10/2017 2:51 pm : link
is also going to suffer without OBJ on the field drawing coverage, and with the expectation that the entire offense will probably struggle to maintain drives.

I would hang on to Engram, but he's a stash for at least a couple of weeks for me. The new receivers have to establish themselves in the offense and a new rhythm must be restored before I think about playing Engram again.

In terms of the WRs on this team, I would pick up Lewis but you can't play him right now. It remains to be seen how he will respond to being the likely #1 receiver on the team and the target of the opposing teams top corner.

Ideally, you go with other options. I always want top receivers on top offenses. The NYG offense is now probably the worst offense in the NFL. So if you are desperate, and have a spot to stash a guy, sure, why not pick up Lewis, in very deep leagues maybe Rudolph. No way am I playing them unless forced to.

Engram has done well for a tightend up until this past week. He had been very consistent.

That said, I do get your point.
