New York Giants fantasy preview

Who to target and avoid in fantasy football from the New York Giants.

Warren Sharp’s Strength of Schedule: Warren Sharp projects the Giants to face a middle-of-the-road, 17th-easiest schedule, in 2019.

Must Draft

Saquon Barkley will be used (up) heavily this year in all facets of the game. More of a threat in PPR than standard, given the litany of failed screen passes he’ll reel in each week, he remains a Top 3 pick across all formats.

Evan Engram’s targets have ballooned with Odell Beckham Jr. out of the lineup and we can expect that trend to continue in 2019. Golden Tate’s suspension and Sterling Shepard’s missed preseason reps with a broken thumb both bode well for Engram as well.

Good Values

N/A

Monitor

Sterling Shepard is still going far too early, ahead of high-upside players like Darrell Henderson and Curtis Samuel. Until Daniel Jones takes over, Shepard is a PPR asset only.

If we get any indication that rookie QB Daniel Jones is going to takeover, he’s absolutely worth adding. Surrounded by talent and supplemented with a rushing floor, he’s an ideal matchup-based/high-upside waiver QB.

Avoid

Eli Manning, Golden Tate, Rhett Ellison, Cody Latimer, Wayne Gallman, and Paul Perkins.
