Since being a 3rd round pick in 2011, Jernigan really hasn't done much. For now he will be lining up in Cruz' slot position until Cruz returns to the Giants' off season activities. If, in the off chance, Cruz misses some real game action, Jernigan will get a chance to start in Cruz' spot, so follow how he does in training camp.

Over the past 3 years Eli Manning has had a different g- to TE each season, and each season he has done the best he could. This year will be another new TE, Brandon Myers, formerly of the Oakland Raiders. Last season (despite playing with below average QBs), Myers put up career numbers, catching 79 passes for 806 yards and 4 touchdowns as the g- to guy in the Raiders' weak offense. It will be interesting to see if he can match or eclipse those numbers playing with a much better QB, but also sharing the load with a better receiving corps. Don't be surprised to see him put up comparable numbers this season.

After a long stint using Lawrence Tynes as their kicker, the Giants let him walk as a free agent and have brought in Josh Brown to take over the kicking duties. Brown has been a solid kicker over the years and will benefit from playing on one of the higher scoring offenses in the league. Last season Tynes finished the season scoring the 2nd most points in the league, so drafting Brown as one of the higher kickers makes sense.

The Giants' defense played well below average last season, giving up the 2nd most yards and finishing 22nd in sacks. The bright spot was they did finish 3rd in the NFL in turnovers. The Giants' D should be improved this season, regardless they still shouldn't be considered a top fantasy defense.
