No. 4 – New York Giants
Sorry New York Giants, but not much has changed in the receiving core, and the same issues remain for this offense.
While the expectation is that the core may see a slight increase in production with players like Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney seeing their second season in the offense, work must be done.
Only five receiving touchdowns were caught by receivers last season for the Giants, which is an unacceptable number to have if this team wants to win games in 2022.
In terms of additions, not much progress has been made for New York on that end. Their sole addition was Richie James Jr., a former seventh round selection.
The hope is that last year was a sort of fluke run of disappointment, but there is nothing that shows this team will make huge strides in 2022.
Golladay has not been up to par of the contract the New York Giants gave him, and Sterling Shepherd has been a solid slot receiver, but his injuries have been an issue.
Darius Slayton has shown some promise, but the New York Giants have been unable to find consistency in that area as well.
The real hope for this New Giants team is Toney, who will be entering his second year in the league after his rookie year was cut short. He played 10 games and finished second on the team in receivng yards, and with Engram being gone, a lot of those targets will go to Toney.
New York still has talented players, but the other three teams in the league have simply seen much more improvement than the Giants have had in recent memory.
