Ask the Giants what went wrong last season and one of the top answers they’ll give is that WR Hakeem Nicks wasn’t healthy and it changed the dynamic of their offense. He is their No. 1 receiver and is the one who draws – and most effectively beats – double teams. The oft-injured receiver is still recovering from knee surgery. He looked OK in mini-camp, but it’s a long summer and he still hasn’t flashed his full speed.
Rueben Randle is a good WR handcuff for Nicks and should be able to start in favorable matchups as a flex. The Giants' WR3 has been productive in spots in the past few seasons.
