Fantasy Giants must make amends for debacle in Philly with big showing vs. Dallas
Giants produced few Fantasy points in Philadelphia, so owners beware.

Just don't throw it right at him.

Can't have late-game deficiencies.
New York Giants.

His hamstring is worse than Beckham's.
New York Giants.

Keep him in the lineup.
New York Giants.

Keep an eye on his tweaked hamstring.
New York Giants.

Forget the end zone interception. Eli was outstanding.
New York Giants.

Eli, Shane, and Odell could have huge nights in Philly
Another prime-time game will give the Giants a chance to shine again, just like in Sunday's comeback victory over the 49ers.

Dramatic endings aside, Donnell just isn't a starter.
New York Giants.

Brown still perfect in field goals
Fantasy owners should keep riding PK Josh Brown until he cools off from a 10-for-10 start.

San Francisco hasn't stopped anyone in three-game losing streak
Giants should be in for big points against a San Francisco defense that hasn't stopped anyone in three straight losses.

Nice Buffalo game, but Beckham and Randle remain top two
Dwayne Harris won't be leading the Giants receiving corps regularly, especially if Beckham and Randle remain healthy.

Pounder won't put up a lot of points
Don't use Andre Williams until that offensive line starts run-blocking consistently.

Touchdown aside, Jennings isn't producing a lot
Rashad Jennings has been more valuable doing other things besides running the ball so far.

Giants' swing/screen specialist due to break out
Vereen is due to find the end zone, and has just as good a chance as any against San Francisco's generous defense.

Don't let Eli's interception keep you from starting him
Manning's first interception of the year shouldn't overshadow his three touchdown passes against Buffalo.

Giants ground game needs to come alive
Giants must improve second-half running game to close out better opponents in the fourth quarter. They got off easy against the Bills.

RB Jennings proving more valuable on specials than offense
Don't start RB Jennings until he shows he can carry the rushing attack.

Beckham will continue to put up points
Starting Beckham will never prove disappointing.

Frustration mounts as Cruz sits again
Victor Cruz could remain out of action a lot longer than anyone anticipated because of his latest injury news.

TE Donnell's faulty hands should land him on your bench.
TE Larry Donnell's stone hands the past two weeks should make him a sit until he shows signs of breaking out.

Brown will get plenty of business this week
Josh Brown is always a good choice at kicker, but the Giants' Red Zone deficiencies against Buffalo's defense could increase his value this week.

RB Vereen showed his true value to offense last week
Shane Vereen will get you some points, but they won't come from his rushing game.

Disappointment reigns for Cruz owners
Not all hope is lost for the Giants' offense against the hard-driving Bills defense, even as Victor Cruz sits for another week.

Giants can live without Cruz, for now
The 1-2 Giants can't let the disappointment of Cruz' calf setback affect adversely an improving passing game.

Giants found a nice weapon in Whitlock
With fullback Nikita Whitlock coming in as a situational pass rusher, the Giants have added a weapon to their struggling pass rush.

Giants season is on the brink
Giants need to resurrect ghosts of 2007 as they face Washington with their 0-2 season on the brink. If they can't, things could degenerate quickly

Fast improvement needed in both receivers and up-front pass rush needed this week
An overall effort like the one in Dallas won't help the Giants right their ship against Atlanta this week.

Giants can't waste opportunities against the Falcons secondary
Giants must find a consistent passing game against Atlanta's Seahawks-style defense to achieve their 28-point goal.

Giants must bring heavy heat against Matt Ryan
Giants must generate a pass rush against Atlanta's faulty offensive line

More flaws in Giants than Eli's and Coughlin's brain cramps
Manning and Coughlin get major blame for the Giants' 27-26 loss to Dallas, but don't overlook a defense that couldn't stop Tony Romo and Jason Witten.

Eli Manning will time up with his receivers and score points
Practice time and an open playbook will help Eli Manning generate the offense necessary to beat the Cowboys.

Preseason problems won't carry over to Sunday's opener
Preseason problems on offense, defense, and special teams will be straightened out by Sunday night's kickoff in Dallas.

Ex-Cowboy returner has this game circled
Dwayne Harris' return game should produce big numbers against Cowboys shaky special teams.

DeMarco Murray isn't in the backfield anymore
DeMarco Murray's departure and the Cowboys' holes in the rushing game will ultimately help Giants defense counteract Tony Romo and Dez Bryant.

Giants roster has turned over, but will it help?
The Giants roster got younger and more varied, but Tom Coughlin must still rely on the old faces from last season to mount a playoff challenge.

Giants bid adieu to fan favorite punter Steve Weatherford
Giants lose popular P Steve Weatherford, but replace him with a more economical directional kicker in former Steeler Brad Wing.

Victory Cruz' aching calf could affect Giants 53-man roster count
Victor Cruz' lingering calf injury will force Tom Coughlin to leave himself short at another position when the cut to 53 comes Saturday.

Odell Beckham, Jr. has a target on his back
Headhunters gunning for Odell Beckham, Jr. pose a threat to the Giants' receiving corps as Beckham's own caution can only go so far.

Jaguars game found Giants "short" on defense
Short-yardage game and injuries are two major worries heading into Preseason Game No. 3 vs. Jets on Saturday.

Continuing to work Dwayne Harris in as special teams leader will help unit come together.
Continuing to work in Dwayne Harris in all stages of special teams should improve a punt return game that netted only a 4.0-yard average last week.

It's time for the starters to show their stuff vs. Jacksonville
All three starting units need to show evidence of jelling after a perfectly horrible first showing against the Bengals.

New starters at safety key in this game
Improvement in safety play and run defense is key to Giants' improvement vs. Jacksonville.

Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo needs to see some coherent play from his starters vs. Jaguars to make the next step.
Improvement in rhythm and tempo should result in more points for the Giants' offensive starters.

Giants added a valuable screen game by signing Vereen
Signing Shane Vereen will make the Giants' offense more explosive, especially with up-and-comer pounder Andre Williams sitting at No. 3.

Can Brandon Meriweather save Giants safety spot?
Newly-signed safety Brandon Meriweather is a hit-or-miss signing for the depleted Giants' secondary. Given his aggressive history, he's more hit.

The tough Tongan defender beat the offensive lineman with Davis' own helmet.
Chris Maumalanga's helmet-swinging rampage against Scott Davis was one of the most brutal training camp fights any Giant of 1994 had ever seen.

The fun-loving guard took nothing from anybody on the field
If there was a fight to be had in training camp, guard Richie Seubert was probably in the middle of it. He took on all comers.

Summertime hasn't always been the coolest time around Giants camp
Though nothing approaches the stupidity of the Jets' Geno Smith-IK Enemkpali fight, the Giants have not been immune to intrasquad training camp tiffs.

Jeremy Shockey vs. Brandon Short
Rookie TE Jeremy Shockey's 2002 dining hall fight with LB Brandon Short was the closest the Giants' came to the Smith-Enemkpali set-to.

What could anyone have expected when the Jets and Giants got together for a joint workout in 2005?
The fight-filled 2005 joint workout with the Jets caused Tom Coughlin to swear off similar events until this week's drills with the Bengals.

Versatility and personality made late Giant Frank Gifford great
Late Giant Frank Gifford would not have ascended to the heights as a player, TV personality, and franchise icon had it not been for Vince Lombardi.

James Jones could fit in with Giants' receiving corps
WR James Jones adds an experienced, able option to an already deep pool of Giants wide receivers.

Carrying on without JPP
The Giants have settled into the process of finding DE Jason Pierre-Paul's replacement in earnest.

Umenyiora set franchise mark amid the team's 12 sacks
Umenyiora made quick work of injury fill-in Winston Justice in a franchise-record six-sack performance against the Eagles in 2007.

Osi's celebration was tougher to take than the sack itself
Umenyiora's celebration scored no style points, but the sacks were the important things.

One-day contract being discussed for later in training camp
Osi Umenyiora will be remembered as a fierce pass rusher when he retires as a Giant at some point in training camp.

Things got nasty in Umenyiora's 2010 contract battle with GM Jerry Reese
Umenyiora went so far as to tag GM Jerry Reese as a liar in a 2011 anti-trust suit in response to Reese's refusal to renegotiate his 2005 extension.

Umenyiora makes big impact in Giants' huge upset over unbeaten Pats
Umenyiora's impact on the Giants' huge, 17-14 upset of the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII should not be overlooked.

The best single stretch of Umenyiora's career
Umenyiora's best four-game stretch of his career in 2010 earned him the NFC Defensive Player of the Month award for October.

Osi's first career touchdown
Umenyiora made early impression his second season with 50-yard fumble return for touchdown.

Earns second Defensive Player of Week Award
Osi's 75-yard touchdown return of his own forced fumble against the Niners earned him his second Player of the Week Award.

Umenyiora accounted for all three touchdowns in season-ender
Two punt blocks and a forced fumble set up all three Giants touchdowns in Umenyiora's rookie season finale against Carolina.

Umenyiora tied an NFL record in 2010 with 10 forced fumbles
Umenyiora ever performed his patented strip-sack better than in his 11 1/2-sack 2010. Seven of them help him tie an NFL mark with 10 forced fumbles.

Umenyiora's two-year Twitter scuffle with Shady McCoy
Umenyiora and Eagles RB McCoy were enemies both on the field and in the Twittersphere.

Coughlin has three huge positions to settle in training camp
The Giants' positional battles at safety, defensive end, and right tackle could have major impact on the season if they don't come out right.

Jerry Reese added a new, veteran face to the safety chart
Adding Jeromy Miles to the roster adds a level of comfort for defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who must settle a young safety competition.

Who will replace Jason Pierre-Paul?
Giants need to find a replacement for Jason Pierre-Paul fast, as well as a starter for the opposite DE.

Can Marshall Newhouse handle right tackle?
Battle between Newhouse and Mosely for right tackle could be most heated battle in Giants training camp.

Giants coaches of Arnsparger's era found greatness outside HC's office
Bill Arnsparger failed badly as Giants head coach, but he was no dummy. Neither were his other two head coaching compatriots of the dismal 1970s.

Giants need a solid running game to make air game work
Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo must sort out a below-average running game in order to evolve his West Coast-style offense.

How The Giants can replace their missing pass-rushing DE
Giants will have to find Jason Pierre-Paul's starting replacement in their own roster. Jenkins, Moore, and Ayers should be candidates.

Is Cullen Jenkins a DT or a DE?
Cullen Jenkins would have to prove he can transition from DT to DE and provide similar pass-rush abilities in replacing Jason Pierre-Paul at RDE.

Moore could step in, but is he ready?
Damontre Moore could be the ideal replacement for JPP if he shows the staff he's ready to make a jump to starting status.
