Saquon was out, but the Giants had other rookies on the field in Detroit

The New York Giants had to play without Saquon Barkley in their preseason game against the Detroit Lions, but the other rookies on the roster got a chance to make an impact. Just about every rookie got more playing time than they did in Week 1 regardless of where they stand on the roster.

Odell Beckham Jr. believes contract will happen

However, the biggest one is arguably the possible contract extension for Odell Beckham Jr. The former first-round pick out of LSU has kept fans on their toes on and off the field ever since he entered the league. With multiple bad headlines in the past, the Giants have always...

New York Giants come together in 30-17 victory over Lions

Who says one play can’t make a difference? A fumble turned incomplete pass propelled the New York Giants to a much-needed victory in Motown.

What Changes Did Davis Webb Make In Week 2 Of The Preseason

Just last week a good chunk of the New York Giants fan based gave up hope on second-year quaterback Davis Webb. One bad performance in his first live action in over a year shouldn’t doom the youngster from the start. In week two, he elevated his performance ten-fold, showing off his accuracy and touch on the ball. Specifically, a 3rd and 17 play from the Giants’ own half began with Webb dropping back into the pocket, working through his progressions, and throwing Sterling Shepard open to...

Some good news and some bad news for the Giants’ offensive line Friday night

Giants-Lions: Winners and losers in the Giants’ position battles

Who won, and who lost, in the Giants’ 30-17 victory over the Lions?

The New York Giants soundly beat the Detroit Lions, of Friday night, never trailing after their second possession and winning, 30-17. But, as the coaches will be the first to tell you, the win-loss totals are not the point of preseason. Most of the time they aren’t even interested in the final score.

Instead, preseason games are for marking the progress of the team as a whole, for coaches to try things out, and for...

The Giants get in the preseason win column while putting up 30 points in Detroit

The New York Giants defeated the Detroit Lions, 30-17, on Friday night in the team’s second preseason game of the year.

Watch: Davis Webb gets monkey off his back with TD pass

After a rough 2018 debut, New York Giants quarterback David Webb needed something to go his way on Friday against the Detroit Lions.In his second game of the preseason, Webb hooked up with running back Wayne Gallman for his first touchdown pass of the preseason. It’s a needed turnaround for Webb after he was awful in New York’s preseason opener.

Let’s continue getting you ready for your Fantasy Football season

When it comes to draft time for fantasy football, there’s no secrets anymore. There’s so much coverage, everyone is a “sleeper” and the old strategy of taking an unknown or overlooked later in the draft who can win you a league isn’t as viable a strategy. Odds are those who you’re drafting with know your sleeper just as well or better than you do. How to combat that can come from little inefficiencies throughout...
