In Week 3, the NY Giants lost 30-12 in a disappointing showing against the San Francisco 49ers. No one expected the Giants to win, but they hung around longer than expected. The team was banged up, but there was still a chance to impress on offense, which they did on the opening drive.

With a new-look offensive line, a group that didn't have Andrew Thomas on the field due to injury, Daniel Jones had to try and get rid of the ball as fast as possible. That can't be the case moving forward, especially if he wants to get the pigskin to his playmakers. Starting next week, said playmakers must include Wan'Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt.

Hyatt for some reason didn't receive a single target in Santa Clara. Robinson was limited in snaps in his first game back after tearing an ACL last year. While we get wanting to ease Robinson back into things, the G-Men have to let him fly in Week 4 vs. Seattle.

Next week the Giants go up against a mediocre defense of the Seattle Seahawks. It will be a great time to feature Robinson/Hyatt instead of Parris Campbell. Campbell will still see targets, but the two youngsters offer something quite different than the former Colts wideout.

Campbell struggled in Week 3 despite having six catches. He averaged just 0.5 yards after the catch, which had people ready to rip their hair out. Robinson should take some of the short area targets Campbell has gotten. In his first action of 2023, Robinson caught 4-of-5 targets. He's quite shifty and elusive with the ball in his hands.

Hyatt is a kid who really made a name for himself in the Week 2 win over Arizona. People haven't forgotten about his 58-yard reception to open the second half, while his 31-yarder in the fourth quarter was a great grab too. His speed is out of this world and it could be a nightmare for Pete Carroll and Co. to try and deal with.

Overall, plenty of changes on offense need to be made. The good news is that both Thomas and left guard Ben Bredeson are expected to be ready for Monday Night Football next week. On top of that, we could see Saquon Barkley (sprained ankle) return to action too. That will be massive for Danny Dimes - as would getting the ball to Hyatt and Robinson early and often.
