New York Giants 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the New York Giants.




Eli Manning385.7251.72738.514.089.6412.617.60.13149.12
Manning posted a career-high 66.0 completion percentage and seven-year high in Y/A (7.5), but he has a sub-4.0 TD% in back-to-back seasons. Replacing Odell Beckham with Golden Tate is not a one-for-one tradeoff and Manning has struggled (more than usual) without OBJ. At best, he's a low-end QB2 that could eventually lose his job at the most important time of the fantasy season.
Daniel Jones128.678.8925.94.443.349.433.80.1952.64
Dave Gettleman has talked about applying the Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers plan with Jones. Assuming that the Giants are out of the playoff hunt in December or sooner, however, it's difficult to envision a scenario where Jones doesn't make a few starts. Or as Pat Shurmur says, "[y]ou never know what is going to happen" in Week 1.

More Fantasy Football QB Resources:




Saquon Barkley299.81379.110.4977.6589.82.91277.29
The Giants ranked middle of the pack in total offense (17th) and scoring offense (16th), but Barkley was an absolute stud despite the mediocre offense. Leading the NFL in scrimmage yards, Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns and added 91 catches for 721 yards and four more touchdowns. Barkley is my top-ranked player across all formats.
Paul Perkins38.8143.60.787.862.40.1626.24
Wayne Gallman37.7150.80.66742.70.2124.57
Rod Smith11.543.70.352.921.80.099.19
Elijhaa Penny3.111.80.05535.50.155.93

More Fantasy Football RB Resources:




Sterling Shepard688674.762.114.70.02116.85
Shepard set career highs in targets (107), receptions (66), yards (872) and Y/A (13.2) last season. With Odell Beckham now in Cleveland, Shepard should establish new career highs in catches, yards and touchdowns.
Golden Tate71788.
Traded midseason, Tate failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in three seasons. Now with a new team, Tate and Shepard are the 1(a) and 1(b) options among the team's wide receivers. Both are solid WR3/flex options, but the offense clearly centers around Saquon Barkley and the quarterback situation is less than ideal.
Cody Latimer11.3178.50.7300022.23
Corey Coleman9.2125.10.5515016.31
Darius Slayton5.489.10.3600011.07
Russell Shepard2.130.20.110003.68

More Fantasy Football WR Resources:




Evan Engram59.9733.84.94000103.02
Even though Engram missed five games last season, he has been one of the best fantasy tight ends on a point-per-game basis in his first two NFL seasons. In terms of fantasy PPG, Engram has finished as the TE4 and TE7 in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Coincidentally, Engram returned from injury just in time for the four games that Odell Beckham missed last season and Engram totaled 22/320/1 with a minimum of 75 yards per game over that four-game span to close the season. Among tight ends, only George Kittle had more fantasy points during that stretch.
Rhett Ellison13.1133.60.5200016.48
Scott Simonson54700004.7
