The NY Giants offense will look radically different in 2023. The Giants had a mediocre offense despite making it to the NFC Divisional Round last fall. The Giants offense finished 16th in points per game, 26th in passing yards per game, and 18th in total yards per game. The Giants offense did finish fourth in rushing yards per game thanks to career-highs in both rushing yards and rushing attempts by Saquon Barkley.
The Giants had one of the least talented offensive rosters in 2022. That will not be the case in 2023. Big Blue’s general manager Joe Schoen signed speedy wide receiver Parris Campbell Jr., veteran wideout Jamison Crowder, traded for former Pro Bowl bowl tight end Darren Waller, drafted Tennessee standout wide receiver Jalin Hyatt, and drafted physical running back Eric Gray this spring.
That is a ton of talent to add to an offense that returns Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley (either via the franchise tag or a long-term extension), Darius Slayton, and Isaiah Hodgins. This offense should be fun to watch this fall. Here are five bold predictions for the NY Giants offense in 2023:
5. Parris Campbell Jr. sets career highs in yards and catches
The Giants signed Campbell to an incentive-laden one-year contract, so he has about seven million reasons to ball out this season. The ex-Colt wideout is coming off the best season of his career. Campbell pulled in 63 passes for 623 yards and three touchdowns in 2022, all of which were career highs.
He’s primed to smash all those marks this season. Right after signing with the Giants, Campbell flew out to Arizona to work out with his new teammates and quickly developed a great rapport with Danny Dimes.
In Giants minicamp he looked like the best wide receiver on the Giants roster. The Ohio State product stands at 6-0, 208 pounds and has lightning fast speed. In the 2019 NFL Combine, Campbell ran a 4.31 40-yard dash.
His strong size and elite speed allow him to play both on the inside and the outside. That versatility will be key for Mike Kafka’s offense. Wan’Dale Robinson and Sterling Shepard both tore their ACLs last season and it’s uncertain if either will be ready for Week 1. Campbell could get a lot of opportunities out of the slot early. Campbell. is going to be a YAC (yards after catch) monster in 2023.
