4. WR Isaiah Hodgins

One of the biggest storylines from the Giants' playoff-bound season last year was that of Isaiah Hodgins, who looked like a star in the final eight games. Now, Hodgins has completely disappeared and we really don't know what is next for the 25-year-old receiver. While his talent is clear, for one reason or another, it hasn't been showcased this season.

In those eight games last season, Hodgins caught 33 passes for 351 yards and four touchdowns and even caught eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Wild Card victory against the Vikings. With how poor the team's receiving core had looked all season, it finally seemed as if New York found their guy on the outside.

Despite this, Hodgins, again, has disappeared this season, catching just 12 passes for 120 yards and one touchdown through 10 games. While yes, a lot of this poor play can be blamed on some disastrous performances from the various QBs who have suited up for the Giants this season, it doesn't change the fact that he's disappointed regardless.

Hodgins' contract is set to expire after this season, so it will be very interesting to see if Joe Schoen believes in his potential and brings him back, or gives up and lets another team give Hodgins a shot. After how hot he was to close '22, we expected more out of the former Oregon State standout this fall.
