Daniel Jones557.6355.53986.827.0413.9454.8301.42.19283.03
As is expected with any rookie quarterback, it was an up-and-down season for Jones, who will need to cut down on turnovers (especially fumbles) heading into year two. In terms of upside, however, only Lamar Jackson (seven) had more games finishing as a top-two weekly performer at quarterback than Jones (four) last season. It wouldn't surprise us if Jones turned in a Josh Allen-like second-year performance and he's one of our favorite QB2/streamers in 2020.
Colt McCoy38.823.7256.


Saquon Barkley256.41192.38.9760.3491.42.56237.55
Missing a few games early in the season, Barkley closed a relatively disappointing season with some positive momentum -- 393 rushing yards, 146 receiving yards and five touchdowns in his final three games. Barkley will run behind an improved offensive line in 2020 (although Nate Solder has opted out) and has the skill set to challenge Christian McCaffrey for the top spot in fantasy production.
Dion Lewis22.385.90.2224.1161.51.0232.18
Barring injury, Lewis will provide the occasional breather to Barkley, but it's unlikely that he gets many more opportunities than he had last year (79 touches) in Tennessee.
Wayne Gallman26.9103.
Elijhaa Penny3.7130.062.2130.043.2


Darius Slayton57.8820.86.07000118.5
Slayton, who ran a sub-4.4 forty and posted a 40.5" vertical at the combine, made a bigger-than-expected impact as a rookie. In his first season, he finished with 48/740/8 and had a pair of games with 120-plus yards and multiple touchdowns in the second half of the season. A concern for Slayton heading into 2020 is that the team's three other top pass-catchers -- Sterling Shepard (six), Evan Engram (eight) and Golden Tate (five) -- all missed at least five games in 2019, so there could be less to go around if the team has better health in 2020.
Sterling Shepard71.7817.45.383.727.80.04117.04
Missing six games in 2019, Shepard has now missed at least five games in two of the past three seasons. With Odell Beckham traded to Cleveland, Shepard was the recipient of a career-high 8.3 targets per game, but he averaged a career-low 10.1 yards per catch and a mediocre 57.6 yards per game. While more of a flex option, Shepard "has torched every Giants corner this summer."
Golden Tate65.1794.
Serving a four-game PED suspension to begin the year, Tate performed as fantasy's WR28 from Weeks 5 to 17. Tate averaged 7.7 targets, 4.5 receptions and 61.5 yards per game and scored six touchdowns, tied for the second-most in his career.
Damion Ratley11.81510.5300018.28
C.J. Board4.668.10.370009.03


Evan Engram647205.44000104.64
Durability has been an issue for Engram, who has missed at least five games in each of the past two seasons and had Lisfranc surgery in December. When he was on the field in 2019, however, he averaged 5.5 catches and 58.4 yards per game, both of which were career highs. SNY TV's Ralph Vacchiano described Engram "as quick and as explosive as ever" and wrote that the Giants "think he’s a guy who could top 80 catches and 1,000 yards easily."
Kaden Smith14.6134.31.2400020.87
Levine Toilolo3.636.70.270005.29
Eric Tomlinson110.40.060001.4
