Jerrel Jernigan held without a grab


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan struggled with the first-team offense Saturday night against Pittsburgh in preseason action. He finished without a grab despite being targeted once in the first play of the game.

Jerrel Jernigan dealing with knee injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan missed practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, the New York Daily News reports. There's no indication how long the issue is expected to sideline Jernigan.


Jerrel Jernigan out Wednesday with apparent leg injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan is not practicing Wednesday due to an apparent leg injury, ESPN.com reports.

Jernigan is facing an uphill battle for meaningful snaps this season after the team drafted Odell Beckham in the first round. He caught 29 passes for 329 yards and two TDs last season.


Jerrel Jernigan the odd man out in New York?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2014) Despite a nice three-week finish to last season, Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan is expected to compete with Rueben Randle for a regular spot in the offense this summer because the Giants drafted Odell Beckham with a first-round pick. However, the Newark Star-Ledger believes Jernigan will lose that battle to Randle since Randle is the more polished and bigger receiver. It could mean Jernigan will have to settle for a backup role this season. 

Addition of Odell Beckham changes Giants' receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Giants view rookie receiver Odell Beckham as a contributor right away, reports ESPN.

"He's a dynamic receiver, dynamic punt returner and a dynamic kickoff returner," general manager Jerry Reese said. "You're getting a guy that can score touchdowns in three different ways for you. There's no way we would pass him up."

Beckham is expected to replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, and his addition allows the Giants to keep Victor Cruz as a slot receiver with Beckham and Rueben Randle playing outside.

"We're talking about the quarterback needing help, and this guy is a weapon," Reese said of Eli Manning and Co. "We need a weapon on the outside. Victor is more of an inside receiver. Victor can't play on the outside. We have Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and we got Mario Manningham back, so we're trying to get the quarterback some weapons. You need weapons in this league. We think this guy is a weapon."


Giants' hiring of McAdoo could make passing game re-emerge


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The Giants' hiring of Bob McAdoo as offensive coordinator signals a big change in how the offense will operate. ESPN's Dan Graziano had a great breakdown of what to expect from the new scheme in New York. 

McAdoo is expected to run a West Coast offense with zone-read principles. It means fewer deep passes and a more controlled, methodical approach but it also means letting your key receivers make plays after the quarterback goes through his reads quickly. That should pop open the door for Victor Cruz to be a factor again, make Rueben Randle a decent regular in the offense and potentially make Jerrel Jernigan a key contributor (this is assuming Hakeem Nicks isn't back with the team). All of that, in turn, would help prop up Eli Manning's stats.

It's something to watch this offseason as pretty much every Giants player will wind up being a sleeper in drafts this summer. 

 


Giants owner wonders why Jerrel Jernigan didn't get shot sooner


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Giants owner John Mara on Monday appeared to take a shot at offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, saying "I'm not sure why it took us three years to figure out Jerrel Jernigan can play," reports the New York Daily News.

With Victor Cruz sidelined most of the final three games, Jernigan took over in the slot and shined, catching 19 passes for 237 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Jernigan should return in a prominent role in 2014, as Hakeem Nicks is expected to leave via free agency.


Jerrel Jernigan scores twice in victory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan was the shining star for the Giants on an otherwise flat afternoon, catching six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown and rushing twice for 57 yards -- and another touchdown -- in a 20-6 victory over Washington. 

Jernigan finishes the season with three touchdowns in his final two games. And he had a total of 227 receiving yards over his last three. His yardage alone in this Week 17 victory -- 147 total yards -- was more than five times his career total heading into this season. 

Jernigan finishes the season with 386 yards and a touchdown. 


Giants wideouts a Week 17 crapshoot


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Giants wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Jerrel Jernigan both have what is essentially an equal chance to shine against a Washington defense that sits right around league average for Fantasy points allowed to opposing wideouts this season. 

Over the past three games, Washington has allowed two total touchdowns to opposing wideouts, and they've been relatively stingy in terms of giving up yards (with the exception of Week 16, when both Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams went over 70 yards -- driven mainly by a late, long pass to Williams).

The problem with the Giants is there's no indication who will step up as the No. 1 wideout. Jernigan has been very good the last two games, with 13 receptions on 20 targets for 137 yards and two touchdowns. And Nicks has been on the other end of the performance spectrum, with five receptions on 12 targets for 57 total yards. But Nicks could be playing his last game with the Giants, and is on the cusp of the first zero-touchdown season in his career. There could be some extra motivation to get him in the end zone and finish on a high note. 

Jernigan is on a roll lately, and Nicks has motivation. But neither has been overwhelmingly great. With the defense not being especially good or bad, matchup-wise, it would be best to consider both of these wideouts as WR3s for Week 17. 


Jerrel Jernigan has career day in win over Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan got off to a fast start as he found the end zone for the first time in his career during Sunday's game against the Lions in Week 16.

Jernigan came down with catches for 18 and then 12 yards in the opening drive, which led to a field goal. He later caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning late in the second quarter for his first career touchdown. He finished the game with a career-high six catches for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 victory. He was targeted 12 times.

The Giants end the season at home against the Redskins.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Jerrel Jernigan has best game of career


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jernigan was a big factor late in the game when the Giants lost Victor Cruz to a knee injury and concussion. In fact, Jernigan had just one catch before the fourth quarter.

He had all of 13 catches for 114 yards coming into Sunday's game. The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Jerrel Jernigan does little despite seven targets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan saw increased reps on offense Week 12 vs. Dallas with wide receiver Hakeem Nicks sidelined due to injury. Unfortunately, Jernigan didn't turn in a performance worth talking about.

Jernigan came into the game with just eight catches for 68 yards. The Giants are back in action Week 13 at Washington.


Giants get key contributions from role players in Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Giants received some key contributions from a couple of role players during Sunday's win over the Packers in Week 11.

Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan caught a short screen and turned it into a solid gain of 13 yards in the second quarter. He finished with two catches for 21 yards. Fullback John Conner caught two of the three passes throw in his direction for only two yards. Tight end Bear Pascoe and wide receiver Louis Murphy each received one target but were both held without a catch in a 27-13 victory.

'Playing fast' helping Jerrel Jernigan


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan leads the team with 18 targets through three preseason games, which included a 15-target game Saturday against the Jets with fellow receivers Victor Cruz and Louis Murphy sidelined. Jernigan, who leads the Giants with seven catches for 94 yards, said he's growing comfortable in his third year in the NFL.

"I know the offense now," Jernigan said, per NFL.com. "I’m out there playing fast. I’m not out there thinking anymore while I’m out there running, so it’s making me play faster. And like coach always tells me, I’m always much better when I’m out there playing fast and not thinking as much. That’s the level where I need to be."


Jernigan focused on solid second season


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2012) Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan told the New York Post he struggled to adapt to the team's offense last season but has worked this offseason to digest the offense. He didn't make a single catch last year. "For me last year, coming in without OTAs, the offseason was even tougher for me, coming right in, just throw me in the fire coming from a spread offense," Jernigan said. "This offseason helped me a lot. I’m understanding more than I did last year and I’m more comfortable out there. I’m just feeling better in the offense, understanding the concepts more. I’m not thinking any more, I’m going out and just reacting to the coverages as I see them."
