1. WR Kadarius Toney

If Kadarius Toney can put up numbers like he did in the 10 games he played last season and stay injury free, he has Pro Bowl potential. It’s a bold take to say after only playing 10 games in his rookie season, but there is nobody in the league similar to Toney, and he looks unguardable when healthy. He’s currently dealing with an injury, which cost him the preseason opener. It’s not expected to keep him sidelined for long, though.

His game last year in Week 5 versus Dallas saw him break the franchise rookie record for receiving yards when he went for 189 receiving yards and 10 catches. Toney was one of the bright spots in a horrible season for the Giants, but optimism for Toney has never been higher as Daboll appears to have taken a liking to the player, speaking very highly of him in press conferences, and has made it clear that he is going to be a key player in the offense alongside Robinson.

So far in camp, Toney and several receivers have spoke enthusiastically of the new offense, as it is “not as pen and paper” according to Toney. The previous offense led by Jason Garrett was poor for receivers, limiting their skillset, and was therefore too predictable for opposing defenses.

The freedom in the offense brought to the Giants by Kafka and Daboll has allowed elusive route runners like Toney to have the freedom and responsibility in the new offense. The 2021 first-round pick’s value has never been higher and that is all down to the new front office and coaching staff who have helped Toney settle into a team where he feels like he can play a big part in.
