New York Giants Roster
The New York Giants are hiring Patriots special teams and wide receivers coach Joe Judge to be their next head coach on Tuesday, according to a source. Judge had an offer to be the head coach at his alma mater at Mississippi State, but he delayed the decision long enough for the Giants to offer him the job. The 38-year-old has been mentored by Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, so he has learned from the best in the business. The Giants are an NFL-worst 12-36 since the start of the 2017 season, but they do have a young quarterback in Daniel Jones and a stud running back in Saquon Barkley.
The New York Giants fired head coach Pat Shurmur on Monday after two seasons with the team, but they will retain general manager Dave Gettleman. Baylor head coach Matt Rhule is a focus of the team's coaching search, according to sources. He was the team's assistant offensive line coach in 2012. They've also requested permission to interview Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Shurmur was 9-23 in his two seasons with New York and is 19-46 in four seasons as a head coach with the Giants and Browns. Shurmur's hands were tied behind his back this year, as the Giants had more than $40 million in dead money and 10 rookies started at least one game. New York will now be looking for their fourth head coach in the last six years.
New York Giants tight end Evan Engram (foot), who had surgery to fix a Lisfranc ligament in his foot, expects to make a full recovery and should resume training in the spring. "It wasnt a full-blown tear, but it needed some fixing," Engram said. His foot injury limited him to just eight games in 2019, and Engram caught 44 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns. He's yet to play a full season in his three years in the NFL, which is concerning, but Engram will remain a TE1 at the most shallow position in fantasy football in 2020. If quarterback Daniel Jones improves in his second year, too, Engram could have his best season yet if he can stay on the field.
New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones had an up-and-down game in Sunday's season-finale loss to the Eagles. The rookie threw for 301 yards on 28 of 47 passing while throwing one touchdown and one interception. He also took four sacks and fumbled the ball twice, losing one of them. Jones has had some moments of fantasy excellence this year, in part because of the Giants' pass-heavy scheme and because of his rushing ability -- he had 26 yards on Sunday. However, he'll need to cut down on the turnovers next year if he wants to take that next step and become a reliable fantasy starter.
New York Giants' first-year tight end Kaden Smith caught eight of his team-leading 11 targets for a game-high 98 yards in Sunday's loss. Claimed off waivers from the 49ers, Smith has been a revelation for the Giants and has likely played his way into the team's future plans at the expense of Rhett Ellison, who could be a cap casualty in the off-season. With Evan Engram frequently injured, Kaden Smith could be an intriguing player in deep leagues if he winds up the next man up on the depth chart.
