Giants Seeking Receiving Help

As you prepare for Week Four, it’s time to scour the web for tips and advice. Here is a good football article to help get you sorted out.

We were somewhat taken aback by the news coming out of the New York Giants’ camp this week.

One thing is pretty clear based on the big-name players that were working out for the Giants on Tuesday — this is a team that is not particularly thrilled with its current set of pass catchers.

Wide receivers Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks and tight end Chris Cooley were among those that worked out for the Giants earlier this week.

The timing is a bit surprising given that WR Victor Cruz (calf) will soon be returning to provide an in-house boost to the receiving corps. Originally anticipated to return this weekend, he’s now been ruled out for Week Four after aggravating his injury in practice on Wednesday. Cruz has been out since October 2014.

Yet the Giants are beating the bushes for more help.

Welker was apparently “very quick, very active in here,” said Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin, but there’s no indication whether the team plans to sign the veteran. Welker spent the last two seasons in Denver, and in each campaign he dealt with concussions (see video below to get a sense of the beating he took) that prohibited him from getting anywhere near the production he managed as a Patriot.

We’re not holding our breath waiting for the 34-year-old to re-emerge as a Fantasy factor.

Nicks, however, is a slightly more interesting project. The fact that Cruz is out increases the chances of Nicks getting picked up by the team for which he had his greatest success. Nicks was cut by the Titans in training camp and failed to land a job after working out for the Cowboys. Just 27, he was not targeted nearly as much as usual last season with the Colts, and is just four years removed from back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns. Could returning to New York spark Nicks back to his previous glory?

Former Redskin TE Cooley, 33, is probably the biggest stretch here. After all, he hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012 and he missed huge chunks of three of his last four seasons. Cooley was a solid option when healthy, but he struggled to stay on the field and after two years away from the game, it’s hard to envision a successful comeback.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below which, if any, of these receivers has a shot to return to the NFL.

2015 NFL Rest of Season Kicker Rankings

September 23, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
This veteran kicker earned himself a long-term extension as the team’s franchise player this spring. Gostkowski was money last year, nailing 35-of-37 field goals and leading the NFL in scoring. We like Tucker more, but certainly would not quibble with you taking Gostkowski as the first kicker. Gostkowki now has three 35-field goal seasons and has shown range with 17 field goals of 50 yards or more in his career.

It’s a fool’s errand to rank team defenses at this time of year, because there’s so much we just don’t know yet. But we’ll try anyways, because no one can ever accuse us of not being Fantasy fools!

Ertz had core surgery last month, missing the entire preseason as a result, but he’s expected to be ready to start the season on time. He really made big strides in his second season and the Eagles plan to employ him in a variety of roles — even as a kicker and as the third QB.

2015 RotoRob NFL Draft Kit: Wide Receiver Rankings

It looked like a holdout was in the cards, but Bryant parlayed a career year in 2014 into a massive new contract this offseason, raising the bar on what a top receiver is worth. He hasn’t missed a game since 2011 and last year upped his yardage, and while his first downs dropped, he did set a career high in TDs. Now let’s see Bryant live up to his five-year, $70-million deal.
