The Giants on Friday officially announced Jason Garrett as OC, Patrick Graham as DC and Thomas McGaughey as special-teams coordinator. Garrett, of course, spent the past 9.5 years as HC of the Cowboys. He spent the 3.5 years before that as Cowboys OC. Over those 13 seasons, Dallas finished among the league's top 11 in yards 9 times and inside the league's top half in scoring 11 times. Garrett's offenses didn't favor rushing vs. passing, instead seeming to lean toward the talent available. We'll break down his potential impact further as we move toward training camp. Graham spent 2019 as the Dolphins' DC, 2018 as Green Bay's LBs coach/run-game coordinator and the previous 2 seasons as Giants DL coach. We don't have enough on him yet to gauge the impact on scheme. We'll see about Graham's plan for the defense.
The Giants will hire Joe Judge as their next HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an out-of-nowhere move. Judge spent the past 8 seasons in New England -- the first 7 as a special teams coach and 2019 as the WRs coach. Prior to that, he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. At just 38 years old, he's now the league's 2nd-youngest HC. Frankly, that's about all we know about Judge at this point. We'll see who he tabs as his OC.
The Giants will fire HC Pat Shurmur, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Shurmur compiled a 9-23 record in 2 seasons at the helm in New York. We'll see who the G-Men tab as their next HC. They have an excellent core on offense with QB Daniel Jones, RB Saquon Barkley, WRs Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) will start this weekend's game against the Redskins, HC Pat Shurmur confirmed on Friday. Washington's secondary is extremely banged up -- and it wasn't a great pass defense to begin with. But Jones has been an extremely volatile fantasy producer this season, so consider him a risk/reward QB2 in season-long leagues and a DFS tournament play.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was working with the starters in Wednesday's practice, according to insider Ralph Vacchiano. That suggests the team expects its rookie to return for this weekend's game against the Redskins. Jones posted a 225-1-2 passing line with 33 rushing yards vs. Washington back in Week 4 -- his 2nd career start. It's possible that his rushing ability is limited in the rematch coming off that high-ankle sprain.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. QB Eli Manning gets another start and is a low-end spot-start option vs. Miami's 29th-ranked QB defense.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was back on the practice field on Wednesday. ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that the rookie was working with the 2nd-team offense, though -- an indication that the Giants are still planning to start QB Eli Manning vs. Miami this weekend. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
Giants QB Daniel Jones' high-ankle sprain is expected to cost him 2-4 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie will miss tonight's game against the Eagles and Week 15 against the Dolphins. We'll see if he makes it back for the final 2 games vs. the Redskins and Eagles. If QB Eli Manning shows reasonably well tonight, he could be a deeper-league option in that Miami matchup.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. He didn't practice all week and should be considered iffy for Week 15 vs. Miami. QB Eli Manning will be back under center on Monday but is just a lower-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.
Giants HC Pat Shurmur announced on Wednesday that QB Daniel Jones has a "mild" high-ankle sprain and that QB Eli Manning will "very likely" start Monday night's game against the Eagles. Manning posted 306-1-0 and 250-1-2 passing lines over the first 2 weeks of the season before getting benched for the rookie. He's just a low-end QB2 against an improved Philly pass defense. We'll see who's under center for the G-Men in a plus Week 15 matchup vs. the Dolphins.
The forecast for today's Packers-Giants game calls for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. Winds are expected to come in at 10-20 mph. Aaron Rodgers and Co. are used to this type of weather. But Daniel Jones told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that he's never played in snow. Keep that in mind when making lineup decisions.
