3. Isaiah Simmons
Outside of a standout pick-six in the Giants' Week 11 victory against the Washington Commanders, Isaiah Simmons' season hasn't lived up to expectations. Who thought we'd be saying this at this point in the campaign?
Acquired via trade in August, Simmons was anticipated to seamlessly transition into Wink Martindale's system. As a blazing-fast, versatile athlete capable of playing multiple positions on defense, it seemed like a perfect match.
However, reality has yet to mirror those expectations, and Simmons hasn't been as dominant as anticipated. With 35 tackles, he has taken a back seat to the formidable linebacker duo of Bobby Okereke and Micah McFadden.
Fresh off a game against the Patriots, where he earned a 39.9 PFF rating, Simmons is not playing his best football. With some time and experience in the Giants system, the hope is that Simmons will find his groove down the stretch. With that said, we expected much better play from the former first-round pick.
