Kadarius Toney Note

It remains to be seen how the Giants new coaching staff is viewing Kadarius Toney heading into Year 2. They were rumored to trade the polarizing wide receiver before the NFL Draft, and the selection of Wan'Dale Robinson early in Round 2 isn't a vote of confidence that is going to see an ultra-expanded role in Year 2.

However, what is clear with Toney is the talent. He flashed future target-magnet potential after commanding a 25% target rate per route run in 2021 - tied for 7th best in the NFL in 2021.

Kenny Golladay Note

Poor Kenny Golladay. The New York Giants' prized offseason acquisition failed to score a single touchdown with his new team despite seeing 13 end-zone targets. It was the most end-zone targets of any player to go scoreless this season.

We have an extremely large sample size of Golladay catching touchdowns at the NFL level, though - he led the NFL with 11 receiving touchdowns in 2019. So the big-bodied wideout has nowhere to go but up in 2022.

Daniel Jones Note

There's a ray of hope now that Jones has gone from a head coach/offensive coordinator combo of Joe Judge and Jason Garrett to Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka. But Jones' future with the Giants in uncertain after the team declined his fifth-year option. Jones' mobility is appealing, but he has been an inefficient turnover machine during his first three NFL seasons. The hope is that Daboll can turn Jones into a Josh Allen Lite, but Jones simply can't match Allen's arm strength. If you're going to invest in this fixer-upper, make sure you don't pay much.

Sterling Shepard Note

Simply put: When Sterling Shepard is healthy and on the field, he gets peppered with targets.

He has been a top-40 wide receiver in terms of fantasy points per game (PPR) over the past three seasons, commanding nearly eight targets per game.

But with his health status off the Achilles tear a major concern and the Giants featuring highly-competitive wide receiver room, 2022 might be the year Ol' Shepard falls to the wayside as nothing more than bench depth with a decent floor in PPR formats as his main selling argument.

Wan'Dale Robinson Note

The high second-round draft capital commitment from the The New York Giants are going to get Wan'Dale Robinson on the field sooner rather than later. Considering the same can't be said for guys like Kadarius Toney or any other leftover Giants skill players from the previous regime, we could see Robinson step in Day 1 and offer an immediate impact.

I'm also more optimistic than most that Brian Daboll understands how to use a shorter receiver like Robinson, based on his prior experiences with Cole Beasley and Isaiah McKenzie in Buffalo. And the Giants don't seem overly concerned about listing him at 5-foot-11 after he measured at 5-foot-8 at the NFL Scouting Combine. Go figure.

In his first season playing wide receiver, Robinson finished second in the FBS in yards per route run (3.56). The Kentucky product also owns PFF's No. 1 career receiving grade (93.4) in the 2022 draft class.

Taylor is a free agent and figures to land as a backup somewhere. He can still run even though he'll be entering his age-33 season, but he's always been a below-average passer.
