2. The players around Daniel Jones will benefit him

The Giants offense got way better this year through free agency and in the draft. Think about this, last season the Giants had receivers like Richie James and Marcus Johnson running routes for them, and yet they somehow not only made the playoffs but won a playoff game. And with the additions they made on the offense, Jones undoubtedly should play better.

They made a huge splash in March by acquiring tight end Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders which no one saw coming and if healthy, Waller can be a scary weapon. He's also reportedly having a very nice training camp and looking like Jones' favorite weapon and has been wearing out the Giants defense too during practices. And like previously mentioned, if he remains healthy, don't be surprised if he puts up 1,000-yard seasons as he did in 2019-20.

Waller is not the only playmaker on offense who's got a chance to be dangerous, as the Giants also decided to bring back Isaiah Hodgins at receiver who shocked everyone during the regular season with his 28 receptions and 351 receiving yards with four TDs. Don't forget about his breakout game vs. the Vikings in the Wild Card Round: eight receptions, 105 yards. and a score.

Plus, the Giants drafted wide receiver Jalin Hyatt in the third round out of Tennessee who many thought was a steal. While he did have a quiet first couple of years for the Vols in 2020 and 2021, he had a major breakout season last year scoring 15 touchdowns with over 1,200 receiving yards in the process. On top of that, Parris Campbell inked a new contract and expectations are high for him. A healthy Sterling Shepard and (hopefully soon) Wan'Dale Robinson only makes things better for Jones.
