Giants release WR Brandon Marshall

New York Giants Twitter - [Full Article]

A day after Brandon Marshall said in a deleted Instagram story that there was 'no room' for both he and Dez Bryant on the New York Giants, Marshall was released by the team. It's highly doubtful Marshall's words had any impact on his being released or that this now means the Giants will go after Bryant, but the timing is interesting.

Fantasy Impact:

Marshall only suited up in the first five games last season after suffering a season-ending ankle injury. He didn't make much of an impact with the Giants, catching only 18 passes. Marshall just turned 34, and is coming off of an injury, so it will be hard to see him be a difference-maker or fantasy factor this upcoming season.

As for the Giants, this leaves the trio of Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram as their top pass-catchers, with Roger Lewis, Cody Latimer, and Travis Rudolph competing for the No. 3 WR position—unless they bring in someone more talented via the draft.

The New York Giants have traded Jason Pierre-Paul to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2018 third-round pick, and the two teams will also swap fourth-round picks. Pierre-Paul recorded 47 tackles and eight sacks last season, which would have led the Bucs' defensive linemen in both categories.

OT Nate Solder to sign with the New York Giants

The Giants are getting something they desperately need—offensive line help—in the form of former Patriots LT Nate Solder. Solder will be an immediate upgrade at the tackle position and should help keep Eli Manning upright.

Adam Schefter later reported it's a four-year deal worth $60 million.

Giants tab James Bettcher to run the defense

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Giants agreed to hire former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher late Tuesday night, a source told ESPN. Bettcher met with the Giants in Mobile, Alabama, on Tuesday afternoon, while he was in town for the Senior Bowl.

Bettcher also interviewed with and received an offer from the Tennessee Titans to be their defensive coordinator, the source said.

The 39-year-old Bettcher wasn't retained by new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, who was hired Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Bettcher was the DC for the Cardinals for the last three seasons and his defenses finished 5th, 2nd and 6th in yards allowed in that span. This looks like a good hire for the G-Men.

Giants pick Pat Shumur to be their new head coach

Tuesday, January 23, 2018, 12:20pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The New York Giants hired Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur as the 18th head coach in Giants history on Monday afternoon.

Shurmur has a strong history of working with and developing quarterbacks. He succeeds Ben McAdoo, who was fired last month with four games remaining in a 3-13 season.

Fantasy Impact:

Shurmur has nine years of experience as a head coach or offensive coordinator. His offenses have finished in the top 12 in four of the last five seasons, although that includes two-plus seasons under Chip Kelly. Most recently, he turned the Vikings' offense around. Minnesota finished 11th in total yards in 2017 after finishing 28th the year before.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. Roger Lewis seems like the best play in the Giants’ passing game this week.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Giants WR Roger Lewis (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. Lewis has been targeted at least 10 times in each of the last three games and the Giants are without Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram this week. Lewis could see another 10+ targets against Washington.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Giants WR Tavarres King (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) took full practice reps all week. Perine ended up with 20 touches last week after being listed as questionable. He should see a similar workload this week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s not in danger of missing a great matchup with the Giants.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Giants QB Geno Smith (not injury related) missed practice Friday.

Friday, December 29, 2017, 6:01pm

Giants TE Evan Engram (rib, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. Rhett Ellison likely picks up most of Engram’s snaps and targets.

Giants TE Evan Engram and WR Sterling Shepard miss Friday practice

Shepard and Engram missed another day of practice and they both seem unlikely to play this weekend versus Washington.

UPDATE: Both Engram and Shepard have officially been ruled out, as has WR Tavarres King.

Fantasy Impact:

Roger Lewis and Travis Rudolph will likely lead the Giants' pass-catching corps if both Shepard and Engram are out. This is probably a situation you will want to avoid for fantasy purposes.

Giants TE Evan Engram (rib) missed Thursday practice

Thursday, December 28, 2017, 3:07pm

New York Giants Twitter - [Full Article]

According to the Giants' official injury report for Thursday, Evan Engram missed practice for the second straight day.

Fantasy Impact:

Engram joined WRs Sterling Shepard and Tavarres King on the injury report, and it seems the trio are on track to not play in Week 17. Travis Rudolph and Roger Lewis are looking like they will be the team's top pass-catchers this week.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) missed Thursday practice

Jordan Raanan - [Full Article]

Shepard missed his second straight day of practice this week and is trending towards not playing in the Giants' season finale versus Washington this week.

Fantasy Impact:

WR Tavarres King and TE Evan Engram are also dealing with injuries of their own, which could lead to Roger Lewis and Travis Rudolph being the team's top pass-catching targets. It might be best to avoid Giants WRs this week.
