The New York Giants will look to take a step forward in the 2022 season under new head coach Brian Daboll, who will have to elevate a roster that has some talent but has not been able to stay healthy. Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay and Daniel Jones are the pivotal players when it comes to fantasy football, but the last two guys have yet to perform in the Big Apple.

The Giants got good contributions from Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton, but they couldn’t get much from rookie Kadarius Toney and are reportedly trying to trade him. We’ll see how Daboll is able to work with this group given his success in Buffalo.

Fantasy football impact

Wan’Dale Robinson: The Giants had one of the most disappointing receiving corps in 2021. Kenny Golladay only put up 521 yards, Sterling Shepard only played seven games due to injury, and Kadarius Toney only put up 420 yards in his rookie season. This leaves the door open for Robinson to make an immediate impact on this team.

Robinson put up 1,334 yards last year at Kentucky and had seven touchdowns. Even though he will be splitting targets with these three other receivers think Robinson actually has a chance to become WR1 after what we saw last year with this team.

San Diego State tight end Daniel Bellinger was taken early in the fourth round. While he might not make much of a fantasy impact initially, he could emerge as a decent blocking tight end within the Giants’ offense.
