5. Jerrel Jernigan (Wide Receiver)
Thanks to Hakeem Nicks being awful at times, Jernigan started to see some solid playing time down the stretch in 2013. He responded with 19 catches, 237 yards and two touchdowns over New York’s final three games. He’s still young and fairly unproven, but the talent and upside is there for the taking. It probably won’t equate to reliable fantasy numbers in 2014 just yet, but Jernigan is a dark horse should anyone in the receiving corps go down with an injury. Even more, he can make an impact as a runner and on returns. He’s a deep sleeper to monitor.
6. Adrien Robinson (Tight End)
Robinson hasn’t recorded an offensive stat while with the Giants, but he’s been buried on the depth chart for his first two seasons. With Myers hitting free agency, the G-Men should absolutely be looking for an upgrade at the tight end position, but it’s also not impossible that Robinson steps up into a bigger role and is that guy for New York. Blessed with an excellent combination of size and speed, Robinson will first have to stay healthy and consistently show over the summer that he can be counted on. Whether or not that will translate into anything legit for the fantasy realm, however, remains to be seen.
