With the NFL season right around the corner, teams are gearing up by filling out depth charts and prepping for what should be an exciting 2015-2016 season. With a disappointing campaign last year plagued by injuries and a tough NFC East division, the New York Giants look to get back on track to their winning ways. With various key players coming back from injury, the Giants have high hopes going into camp.
The biggest loss for the Giants last year was their Pro-Bowl wide receiver Victor Cruz. Cruz suffered a knee injury last season which slowed down the offense, but way quickly picked back up by rookie Odell Beckham Jr. The high flying, speedy target picked up the slack last season after Cruz went down finishing the season with 91 receptions, 12 touchdowns and 1,305 yards. The league should be concerned to cover the projected starters for the Giants in the wide receiver slot. Accompanying Beckham Jr. and Cruz will be Rueben Randle. These three will give defensive backs all season.
Behind center will be Eli Manning which should not come as a surprise to many. The playoff superstar is expected to pick up his performance this season with a full wide receiver core. Manning is excited to have his targets back which should open up the ground game this season.
Accompanying Rashad Jennings in the backfield this season will be Shane Vareen and Andre Williams. This powerful backfield should do very well this season due to the potential arial attack the Giants can have. Along with the running game, the defense is expected to be one of the top defenses in the league. With high expectations, the Giants are expected to head into the season with a chip on their shoulder in hopes of making a Super Bowl run again.
