Giants Week 17 fantasy rankings

Posted by Joe Kania on December 29, 2013 – 11:00 am

Where are the Giants ranked?

Giants Lions Football

Tom Coughlin, Jerrell JerniganLooking for a last-minute fantasy add before Sunday’s action begins? The Giants defense may be what your team needs to get over the hump in Week 17.

At No. 18, the unit is the Giants’ highest-ranked group or player heading into the final week of the regular season. In week 16, the team’s defense picked up 15 points and finished No. 6 among the league. It has been ranked inside the top 20 for six of the past seven weeks and finished with 15 or more points four times this season.

Also moving up in this week’s rankings is wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan. With Victor Cruz sidelined with a knee injury, Jernigan has stepped in at the slot and excelled. He scored a career-high 6.7 points in Week 15 before setting another career mark (15) the following week.

Jernigan’s 15 points in Week 16 were the eight-most of any receiver in the league.

After two down weeks in a row, quarterback Eli Manning climbed two spots, from No. 24 to No. 22. Receivers Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle, along with tight end Brandon Myers, also moved up from last week’s rankings.

Here’s a look at this week’s fantasy rankings:

Jernigan complements Wilson in return game

Posted by Dan Salomone on December 13, 2012 – 5:55 pm

jerniganIt’s not often a 60-yard kick return can be overshadowed. But that’s what happens when a teammate racks up 227 return yards, including a 97-yard touchdown.

Welcome to Jerrel Jernigan’s world.

After David Wilson already tore off three returns of 50-plus yards, Jernigan ripped off his own chunk late in third quarter that set up Eli Manning and the offense with the ball at New Orleans’ 25. The long return came at a time when the Saints had clawed back to make it a one-possession game. Victor Cruz later scored on the ensuing possession to swing the momentum back.

“We kind of knew, the coach kind of knew, that they were going to kick it short because they didn’t want to kick it to David anymore,” Jernigan said. “So coach had already told me that they were going to kick it short and to scoot up. So I was expecting it anyway, and when it came, my kickoff return team did a good job of blocking and they got on their man early because it was a short kick. I had pretty much nothing to do but hit the hole. It was a big hole right there. Just hit it and run. But the bad part on me is I let the kicker catch me.”

Jernigan was part of a tweak in the return game last week against New Orleans that placed him as the off-returner to Wilson. The Giants have used multiple combinations and formations back there, but always with Wilson as the primary returner.

“It was a good switch-up because [Thomas Morstead] was so used to kicking indoors,” Jernigan said of the Saints’ kickoff man. “Coach didn’t want to have any mishit or him try to kick the ball away from David. So he wanted me back there just in case. I’m just doing the best I can do back there with getting those off-balls and blocking for David back there.”

Jernigan could now see more time back there with Wilson’s growing and needed role on offense. But all parties were coy on what to expect Sunday. All special teams coordinator Tom Quinn would say was that the team always has “two or three guys ready” and that Wilson is always part of the plan.

Quinn was also asked if it becomes a game of cat-and-mouse with teams trying to avoid the explosive returner.

“We’ve talked about that and we have adjustments ready,” Quinn said. “But I think teams are paid to do their job in this league and they’re going to do it to the best of their ability. They’re going to kick it deep and we have to block because Atlanta’s really good on kickoff coverage. That could happen, we have to have some adjustments ready, but I think they’ll kick and cover it.”
