We’ve still got to play five more games between the NFC East, but obviously we’ve got Minnesota next Monday night and it should be an opportunity for us to go out and get better. I thought we made some improvements this week offensively with running the ball and pass protection and making some plays. We’ve just got to eliminate the mistakes.” -QB Eli Manning

GIANTS FANTASY RANKINGS: WEEK 5

Victor Cruz, Dunta RobinsonVictor Cruz finished as the league’s No. 3 receiver in Week 4, the second time he has finished in the top three, and breaks into the top 10 for the first time this season in this week’s fantasy rankings.

Cruz comes in at No. 6 and was ranked as high as No. 4 by ESPN. He moved up five spots from his No. 11 ranking in Week 4.

WEEK 4 FANTASY RESULTS

The fantasy experts expect David Wilson to have his best game yet against the Eagles on Sunday. He is ranked as the No. 16 running back, a season-high, and moved up 13 spots from his ranking last week. Wilson entered the season ranked No. 17 but has fallen every week since.

The Eagles allow the 19.2 fantasy points per game to standard running backs, according to fantasy football insider James Morris, and Wilson is expected to carry an increased workload after the Giants cut running back Da’Rel Scott earlier in the week.

Quarterback Eli Manning moved up six spots, from No. 19 to No. 13, and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks moved up five spots, from No. 27 to No. 22.

Tight end Brandon Myers was the only Giant to fall in this week’s rankings, dropping one spot from No. 14 to No. 15.

Here’s a look at this week’s fantasy rankings. This week’s ranking is listed in parentheses. +/- indicated the difference between this week’ rankings and last week’s.

GIANTS FANTASY RANKINGS: WEEK 4

Eli ManningFor the second week in a row, the Giants players are falling in the fantasy rankings, most notably quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

Manning fell from No. 12 in Week 3 to No. 19 and was bumped down 11 spots by both Yahoo and Fox after he failed to find the end zone in the Giants’ 38-0 loss to Carolina last weekend. He finished with 4.16 points, No. 31 among quarterbacks.

WEEK 3 FANTASY RESULTS

Nicks failed to score any fantasy points in Week 3, the first time he’s done so in 2012, and dropped eight spots, from No. 19 to No. 27. Week 4 is the first time Nicks has been ranked outside of the top 20.

But his fellow receiver, Victor Cruz, is still flirting on the edge of the top 10. Cruz, No. 11, dropped a spot from last week but hasn’t been ranked lower than No. 12 this season. Cruz led the league in receiving in Week 1 when his three touchdown receptions translated into 29.8 fantasy points.

The only areas the Giants did not regress were at tight end and on defense as Brandon Myers (No. 14) and the team’s defense (No. 25) earned the same ranking for the second week in a row.

Here’s a look at this week’s fantasy rankings. This week’s ranking is listed in parentheses.

FANTASY FOOTBALL: BREAKOUT PLAYERS AND SLEEPERS TO TARGET

It’s time to start thinking about fantasy football again, and while you’re brainstorming a team name, NFL.com put together an early draft kit, which included a few Giants among breakout players and sleepers.

Breakout Players to Target:

WR Hakeem Nicks

“This might be the biggest risk-reward breakout candidate on the list, but there’s a lot to like about Nicks heading into this season. For one, he’s back at 100 percent health. The North Carolina product is also in a contract year, which means he’ll be even more motivated to produce at a high level in an effort to cash in at the end of the 2013 campaign. Being that he’ll be taken as a No. 2 fantasy wideout, Nicks could turn into a major steal in drafts.” — Michael Fabiano

RB David Wilson

“With Ahmad Bradshaw gone, expect the 2012 first-rounder to build on those flashes we saw last season. His ability to catch the ball means he doesn’t have to leave the field on third down, which makes his value to you all the greater.” — Dave Dameshek

TE Brandon Myers

“How am I able to call someone who finished in the top-10 in fantasy points at his position last year a ‘breakout candidate’ for 2013? When you’re a tight end, being ranked 10th isn’t all that great, but when you’re going to make the jump to a top-three player in your category in just one year? Yeah, that’s a breakout. The Giants have shown no matter who their tight end is, Eli Manning is going to get the ball to him – whether it’s Jeremy Shockey, Jake Ballard, Kevin Boss or Martellus Bennett. Myers has more talent than most of the players I’ve just mentioned. He’s a perfect fit in New York’s offense, who, unlike Oakland, actually has threats on the outside that will open things up for Myers underneath. He caught 79 balls with the Raiders last year, he’ll approach 100 with the G-Men.” — Jason Smith

Sleepers:

RB Andre Brown

“David Wilson is going to get the headlines, but Brown is going to get the touchdowns. The Giants love to pound the ball when they get inside the 10-yard line, and Brown will get repeated chances to score every time they do so. He plays with a mean streak that’s part desperation, part desire. He wants the football, and he wants to get in the end zone. He can be a solid flex player for you this season, and he’ll be available in the eighth round or later.” — Jason Smith

TWEET OF THE DAY

QUOTABLES

“There is no such thing as ‘maintain.’ You have to get better all of the time or you are going the wrong way. And you have heard it as a cliché, said many times, what I firmly believe and I think that good players all know it, as you physically get older, you have to compensate for that with continued growth with technique, continued growth in the deepening of understanding of what is taking place out there, so that you can compensate for whatever that loss of skill level is. So as a receiver, as a running back, as a lineman, if you are not doing that, then pretty soon you are going to be on the bench.”Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride on Eli Manning (WATCH PREVIEW REPORT)

Minicamp Roundup Day 2

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 13, 2013 – 9:00 am

The Giants are underway at the Timex Performance Center for mandatory minicamp. Here are the latest highlights, photos, and quotes that you need to know from Day 2:

QUOTES:

Coach Tom Coughlin on what he’s seen from his running backs: “Actually, they have all worked well given the opportunities. The young kid (Cox) continues to do some good things. Between Andre (Brown) and David (Wilson), we’ve had good days, I think, pretty consistently. Da’Rel Scott has had a few good days. Ryan Torain, of course, has the hamstring right now.” READ MORE

RB David Wilson on pass blocking: “I didn’t have many opportunities last year to show that capability due to my reps and that’s an area that I definitely need to show the coaches that I can handle and that’s an area that a running back in the NFL definitely needs to be able to handle. I’m doing all the right things to take steps towards that and be ready for the season.” READ MORE

CB Terrell Thomas on if he’s still wondering how the knee will hold up: “No. Not at all, to be honest with you. I’m able to do everything. It’s more just about getting comfortable and trusting myself without hesitating, without thinking, and just reacting and I’m almost there. Physically, I haven’t swelled up in the last four months and I’ve been progressing every week and each week I get better and faster and stronger, so it’s just a progression. I have to be realistic with myself knowing that I had two ACLs in one year and it’s a long journey, but I’ll be back and I’m going to shock a lot of people.” READ MORE

WATCH: Giants do “Roll Call” at Yankee Stadium

WATCH GIANTS PARTICIPATE IN ROLL CALL AT YANKEE STADIUM

Accustomed to having fans chant their names, three Giants had their roles reversed on Wednesday night in the Bronx.

David Wilson, Rueben Randle, and Bear Pascoe took in the Yankees game against the Seattle Mariners with the Bleacher Creatures, assisting “Bald” Vinny Milano and the fan group in the “Roll Call” tradition.

“I’ve never witnessed anything like that. One guy screaming and the whole crowd is involved,” Wilson, a Virginia native, told MLB.com. “This was my first time being a part of something like that.”

Before the game, which the Yankees lost 12-2, the Giants trio toured the stadium and watched from the field during pregame warm-ups.

“It was really fun. That was the first time I got to be there at that level and just to see guys getting ready and preparing for the game and getting ready to go out,” Pascoe said.

“It was pretty neat. It was pretty similar to us before a game – we go out and each guy does his own thing and does what he has to do to prepare for the game.”

That included batting practice, where Wilson believed he could hit one out of the park if given some time.

“Give me a little while, a little practice,” he said. “[Give me] about a week.”

Randle, a fellow second-year draft pick, disagreed.

David Wilson intends to be lead back

Posted by Dan Salomone on March 22, 2013 – 9:00 am

A changing of the guard was set in motion last month when the Giants released running back Ahmad Bradshaw. The six-year vet’s departure jumpstarted the competition for the lead role, and David Wilson, last year’s first-round draft choice by the Giants, has set his eyes on it.

“I mean that’s definitely my intention,” Wilson said Thursday on ESPN NY 98.7FM. “But you’ve got to go in and come into camp and definitely lock the spot down. So I’ve been working hard this offseason so I can give myself the best chance to do that.”

Among others, Andre Brown shares that intention and will also vie for more time out of the backfield. But Wilson believes turning the corner after the bye in Week 11 of his rookie season will give him an edge heading into 2013.

“After that bye week, I took that time to really stay in the meeting rooms extra and definitely catch up,” said Wilson, who had just 18 carries before the break and three games with none. “So after that bye week, I think that’s when I really had a good grasp of what was going on, and I was able to go out there and perform and have some good games and some good moments.”

Wilson went on to finish the year with 71 carries for 358 yards (5.0 average) and four touchdowns, and averaged more than 10 rushes for 60 yards per game in the final four weeks of the season. The increased load was partly due to his role in the blocking schemes, which had been a question mark early on.

“It was pretty fair,” Wilson said of people critiquing him. “When the game’s on the line, the ball is going to be in Eli [Manning’s] hands for him to make the decisions. So in order for him to make decisions accurately, he’s got to be able to stand in the pocket. But as well, it was a part of just bringing me along slow. The coaches weren’t really in a rush. Ahmad was definitely doing his part in making plays for the team, and I guess they didn’t feel like they were going to rush to really get me on the field.”

Of course, the final question remains his role as a kick returner.

Wilson became the first player in NFL history to record 200 kick return yards and 100 rushing yards in the same game with his performance against New Orleans in Week 14. But if he plans on being an every-down back, can he still return kicks?

“That’s definitely one of my passions,” he said. “So I would definitely enjoy being back there and helping in that aspect too.”
