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.

No. We’ve just been in the middle of the road and we can play better. We’re going to try to play better. We’re working to play better. They’re all working to play better.” -Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell

Daily Blitz (8/2): Coughlin anxious for Nicks return

COUGHLIN ON NICKS

“Coughlin was asked if he’s getting impatient with Nicks, the stellar wide receiver who has been limited in camp after he was slowed most of last year with foot and knee injuries.

‘No’ Coughlin said. ‘Certainly, I want to see him on the field and he wants to be on the field. It’s frustrating, but I’ve got to learn to control myself when it comes to that as well and just realize that you know what, he’s trying like heck to get out there and he knows he needs to practice and work at it and he came in excited about being able to go and then he had this little groin injury, which I hope is not going to set him back for very long, but obviously they’re taking all the necessary precautions.'”

QUOTABLES

“It’s been a good thing. I actually just noticed that last practice. I’m like we’ve been on the same side almost every play. Just the way the defense, me and him are always together, so whenever he doesn’t know something and I don’t know something, we can work hand to hand. So it’s pretty good having somebody you know that came in with you and is playing with you. “ – Rookie DT Johnathan Hankins on playing with fellow rookie Damontre Moore.

Daily Blitz (7/25): Fantasy breakout players

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 1

Posted by Dan Salomone on June 12, 2013 – 9:00 am

The Giants opened up their three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday at the Timex Performance Center. Here are the latest highlights, photos, and quotes that you need to know from Day 1:

QUOTES:

WR Hakeem Nicks on the reason why he didn’t tell Coach Coughlin about not attending the OTAs: “Well, I feel where he was coming from. I could have done a better job at reaching out, but I did. We finally got to talk. We got things straightened out on that end. Coach Coughlin…that’s my guy. That relationship can’t go sour. I felt where he was coming from. I should have done a better job at reaching out to him, but I’m here now and they’re excited to see me.” READ MORE

Coach Tom Coughlin on Nicks’ return: It will make a big difference once we get him here for some extended time, which this camp is not going to allow us. But at least he’s here and he’s working.” READ MORE

QB Eli Manning on having Nicks back at practice: “I’m looking forward to having these last three practices and keep working on getting better, working on our offense, improving on things and see if we can… I thought we’ve made some progress these last few weeks of OTAs and hopefully we can finish on a strong note and take that into training camp down the road.” READ MORE
