2. WR Isaiah Hodgins

When the Giants picked up wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins last year, people didn't expect much out of him. However, he became one of the most reliable WR options for Jones down the stretch. Hodgins really made a name for himself in the Wild Card Round win over the Vikings, posting eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. It was a no-brainer to bring him back in 2023.

Unfortunately, Hodgins only had 21 receptions this season for just 231 yards and three touchdowns. His best game was in Week 2 when he hauled in five balls for 40 yards and a TD. Really? Hodgins also had four games without recording a single catch, including back-to-back games in Week 9 against the loss to the Las Vegas Raiders followed by the defeat to Dallas in Week 10. We all know that Hodgins is no No. 1 receiver, but after how great he looked to close out '22, expectations were high for him this year.

Hodgins quite simply had a quiet year for the Giants on offense - so did the Giants WRs as a whole, as they combined for just 15 touchdowns. Hodgins had some high hopes that he could be productive for the Giants this season, but the youngster just didn't get the job done.
