The New York Giants weren’t exactly the scene for fantasy football dominance in 2013. Many probably felt Eli Manning would be at least a borderline QB1, while David Wilson was arguably the hottest fantasy sleeper heading into the new season.
Neither would be the case. Wilson was not only a huge disappointment, but his ineptitude began right away in week one with fumbling issues, and didn’t end until a neck injury knocked him out of his only good showing of the season. Manning, on the other hand, struggled with timing and decision-making. He visibly tried to do too much while his pass protection was less than ideal.
Add in free agent bust Brandon Myers at tight end and an alarmingly bad Hakeem Nicks in a contract year, and 2013 was a mess for the G-Men. Naturally, an 0-6 start didn’t yield a ton to write home about in reality, and in turn anyone who rolled with New York fantasy options couldn’t have been too thrilled.
As bad as it looked at times, though, it’s important to remember that there is still some solid talent on this Giants roster and that 2014 brings a chance to start anew. Manning and some of the other options will definitely be hard to trust, but it’s hard to see any of them being as bad as they were last year again in 2014.
With a dash of optimism, let’s look ahead to the 2014 fantasy football season by ranking New York’s best fantasy options currently under contract:
