2023 New York Giants Preview


New York Giants

2023 Season Preview:

2022 Finish: 9-7-1

Won first round playoff game, lost to Eagles in second round.

The Giants far exceeded expectations last season making it into the playoffs and upsetting the Vikings to win a playoff game. HC Brian Daboll seems to have truly brought a winning culture with him to the big apple. Daniel Jones went from being on the chopping block to be replaced, to having by far the best season of his career and securing a multi year franchise QB contract.

Saquon Barkley also bounced back to having his best season since his electric rookie campaign.

The Giants brought in a small army (pun intended) of slot WRs to boost the passing game. The biggest addition this off-season for fantasy has been TE Daren Waller who has become a very trendy pick to be the TE2 on the season and lead New York in targets and receptions.

Fantasy Player Outlook:

QB:

Daniel Jones ended up in the top 10 last season mainly based on rushing for over 700 yards and 7 rushing TDs. Jones threw for just over 3200 yards and 15 TDs. Danny Dimes was up and down with only 5-6 weeks in the top 12 (depending on your scoring) but had a couple monster weeks. I consider him to be outside the top 12 for normal 1 QB leagues but a top option as your 2nd QB in super flex or 2 QB formats. I expect a little more passing points with a noticeable dip in the rushing numbers.

RB:

Saquon Barkley had a great season in 2022 and showed the elite talent that made him a superstar early in his career. Barkley played in 16 games and was lighting it up in the first half of the season. He slowed down a bit in the back half but gave you monster games in weeks 15-16. Barkley signed a 1 year deal and has been with the team for the majority of camp. I love Barkley as an anchor RB1 and late first round pick. Eric Gray and Matt Breida are behind Barkley but would likely be in a messy RBBC if Barkley misses any games.

WR:

Isaiah Hodgins and Darius Slayton will begin the year as the 1-2 with Parris Campbell in the slot. Rookie Jaylin Hyatt, former second round pick Wandale Robinson and vet Sterling Shepard round out the room. My take here is that its messy. In normal size leagues I don’t see myself rostering any. In deeper benches, 14-16 team leagues and best ball, Hodgins Slayton and Hyatt are worth the dart throws.

TE:

Darren Waller is one of the biggest ADP risers as the summer winded down and real drafts started taking place. Waller is a former TE2 overall in fantasy and is the favorite to lead the Giants in targets. I do like Waller but in my recent redraft drafts he went entirely too early for my taste (late 4th round) I like Waller if he is in the late 5th or later but that probably won’t happen given the buzz. Daniel Bellinger showed some talent last year and would be a nice waiver grab if Waller misses any time.

DST:

The Giants are not a top 12 defense for fantasy and would only consider them for streaming vs a bad offense.

Summary:

The Giants should be interesting this season with the addition of Waller. They don’t have many fantasy gems but if one of the WRs dominates early they could be a great early waiver add.

Favorite player to draft factoring in floor, ceiling and cost: Saquon Barkley at pick 9 or later.
