Giants' new offense features mostly three-wide sets - [Full Article]

There had been a lot of speculation about what the Giants' offense would look like under new coordinator Ben McAdoo. The belief was that it would be a West Coast offense in the mold of what the Green Bay Packers -- his former team -- run, with a sprinkle of coach Tom Coughlin's power game.

Until now, it was all talk.

But Thursday we were able to see that the Giants, in fact, have moved into the 21st century. They're installing a spread-'em-out offense that includes three wide receivers on almost every play. They ran a ton of screen passes (most unsuccessfully), quick-timing horizontal pass patterns and three-step drops. It appeared dissimilar to Coughlin and former coordinator Kevin Gilbride's vertical attack.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is good news for both Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham, who should both see enough snaps to be fantasy relevant in 2014. Last year, Randle played 56% of the snaps behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz; that number should surpass 70% this season. More snaps typically lead to more fantasy points.
