New York Giants Week 6 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 6 roundup for the New York Giants in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 28

Fantasy surprise: Nobody

Really, you just don't want to play anybody on the Giants for fantasy right now. This is a group that is averaging 12.4 points per game and can't run consistent offense because of their offensive line. It has rendered basically all their weapons useless. Tight end Darren Waller has been the only player who has even been (somewhat) productive with 23 receptions for 239 yards, yet fantasy football players have likely been disappointed if he's on their roster. -- Jordan Raanan -- Rank: 31

I feel badly for Joshua Ezeudu, who was apologizing for allowing a pummeling of his quarterback (again) on Sunday. There's no way it's on one guy, especially not a 2022 third-round pick playing out of position at left tackle. But that's the state of the Giants' offensive line now, with the entire group having been spun through the blender with injuries and ineffectiveness. And the sack Ezeudu surrendered -- one of seven allowed by New York on Sunday, after it gave up 11 in Week 4 -- did force Daniel Jones out with a neck injury. Injuries have ravaged the Giants' offense, and we're only in Week 6. Quick, someone put Darren Waller in a bubble. This is awful.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 30

It gets worse by the week. The offense is bad and the defense has issues. Aside from that, things are good as they head to Buffalo to play the Bills.

USA Today -- Rank: 29

S Jason Pinnock's 102-yard pick-six Sunday is the longest play of the season NFL-wide and provided Big Blue's first TD before halftime this season. Some consolation for a team that hasn't run an offensive play with the lead yet and has now been outscored by a league-most 91 points.

The Athletic -- Rank: 29

The Giants lost again, but if you're looking for a bright spot, at least they are remembering that Darren Waller is on the team. The tight end signed a three-year, $51 million deal in the offseason but has been conspicuously absent from the passing game at times. Sunday, he had a season-high eight catches for 86 yards, and he's now the only Giant with more than 200 scrimmage yards this season (23 catches, 239 yards).

FOX -- Rank: 31

The Giants are optimistic Daniel Jones' neck injury isn't a major problem. That's good news for Jones, but also scary — because it means Jones might have to play more snaps behind this woeful offensive line. Jones has been bad, but his protection is giving him almost no chance.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 31

It's hard to rank anyone behind the Giants. Any of the bottom three could be the worst team in football. And it won't get better if QB Daniel Jones has to miss any time. Head coach Brian Daboll's challenge the rest of the season is making sure this doesn't turn into a one- or two-win fiasco with the club looking like it has quit. It's already the least competitive team in the NFL.

PFT -- Rank: 29

It's almost as if 2022 never happened.
