The potential for the NY Giants offense heading into next season is sky high. Last year, Daniel Jones was throwing the ball, for most of the season, to guys who a lot of people felt like they should have been on the practice squad.

No disrespect to some of the former Big Blue wideouts, but Jones finally has a unit that will instill some fear in opposing defenses. With the additions of Darren Waller, Jalin Hyatt, Parris Campbell and more, the pass-catchers will be ready to put on a show this fall and winter.

Pro Football Focus believes the aerial attack will be impressive in '23 too. In a piece giving fans a reason for optimism for each squad this year, the passing game was mentioned for the G-Men. We're not going to argue with that at all:

The passing game for the NY Giants will be fun to watch this season

"For as good as Daniel Jones was in 2022, he wasn’t one to push the ball down the field. He ranked 31st among qualifying quarterbacks in yards per attempt (6.8) and 47th in average depth of target (6.4). There is reason to believe the Giants ramp that up this year, given their passing weapons. They drafted Jalin Hyatt, one of the best deep-threat receivers in college football in 2022, and traded for Darren Waller, who has ranked in the top 10 in yards per route and average depth of target among tight ends since 2019."

As high as we are on Hyatt, Waller and Campbell, keep in mind that Darius Slayton is back on a two-year deal, plus Wan'Dale Robinson is recovering nicely from his torn ACL and Isaiah Hodgins will look to pick up where he left off. Oh, Sterling Shepard is also grinding to get back to 100 percent and UDFA Bryce Ford-Wheaton has sleeper written all over him.

Did we mention Daniel Bellinger is jacked beyond belief? Jones has loads of weapons to work with this year. If you're not on the Giants bandwagon just yet, there's still time to hop on.
