Giants LB Jameel McClain on track to play vs. St. Louis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) Giants linebacker Jameel McClain (knee) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day on Friday and was officially ruled as probable for Sunday's game against St. Louis, per the team's final injury report.

McClain has totaled 101 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks this season.


Giants D continues strong play in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Giants defense continues their late-season revival in Week 15 against Washington, as they recorded their third double-digit Fantasy game in a row in a 24-13 win.

Washington's offense actually performed better than expected Sunday, racking up 372 yards of total offense. However, the Giants bull rushed Robert Griffin III all day, racking up seven sacks and a turnover in the win.

The Giants DST unit finished the game with 13 Fantasy points, giving them 54 over the last three. They will look to keep things going in Week 16, with the Rams on the schedule. 


Giants take advantage this time


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) Aside from its season-high seven sacks, the Giants DST underwhelmed with a gimme matchup Week 13 at Jacksonville. But it got a reprieve with another favorable one Week 14 at Tennessee and this time took advantage, allowing seven points on 207 yards.

The Giants one-upped their season high with eight sacks and also scored their first defensive touchdown of the year when defensive lineman Markus Kuhn returned a fumble 26 yards in the first quarter. That was one of the Giants' three takeaways on the day, more than in their previous three games combined. The other two were interceptions.

Despite this strong showing, the Giants DST has had little to offer Fantasy owners this season, but with another favorable matchup Week 15 against Washington, which just got shut out by St. Louis in Week 14, it's worth starting again in Fantasy.

 


Giants promote DL Paul Hazel, waive DT Dominique Hamilton


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) The Giants announced a pair of roster moves prior to Sunday's game against Tennessee, the Recordreports. The team promoted defensive lineman Paul Hazel from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster and waived defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton.

Report: Giants' Robert Ayers out for season with torn pectoral


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Giants defensive end Robert Ayers suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Week 13 against Jacksonville, according to the New York Daily News on Monday. Ayers' season is expected to come to an end. The team will likely make the announcement in the near future. He registered five sacks and one forced fumble in 12 games.

Giants come up short at Jacksonville


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) In what should have been a gimme matchup Week 13 at Jacksonville, the Giants DST managed to disappoint. Sure, it recorded seven sacks after only once recording more than two in its previous 11 games, but it also allowed 25 points on 258 yards. It was only the third time this season that the Jaguars scored more than 20 points in a game.

It was also the first time that the Jaguars didn't turn the ball over. Earlier this season, the Giants had a stretch of seven games in which they recorded 13 interceptions, but they've now gone three straight games without one, recovering just two fumbles during that stretch.

The Giants face the Titans, Redskins and Rams over the next three weeks, giving them three favorable matchups leading up to Week 17 against the Eagles, but since they couldn't take advantage of this matchup against the Jaguars, you should think twice about starting their DST in Fantasy.


Giants sign LB Terrell Manning off Cincinnati's practice squad


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Giants have signed linebacker Terrell Manning off Cincinnati's practice squad on Tuesday, according to Bengals.com. Manning registered three tackles in four games this season, including three with the Bears.

Giants LB Jameel McClain set for Monday MRI


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Giants linebacker Jameel McClain is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured knee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Monday. McClain left Sunday night's game against the Cowboys with the injury, which is not believed to be a long-term issue, per Rapoport.

McClain has totaled 78 tackles (45 solo) and one forced fumble this season.

The Giants will face the Jaguars in Week 13.


Better times ahead for Giants DST?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) For the fourth time in five games, the Giants gave up more than 30 points in Week 12, allowing 31 on 385 yards to the visiting Cowboys. They had just two sacks and one fumble recovery.

The Giants haven't had more than two sacks in a game since Week 2 against Arizona, but of course, they've had some tough matchups in recent weeks, such as the Seahawks, Colts and now the Cowboys twice.

Because the Giants DST ranks 29th at the position in standard CBSSports.com leagues, you may not pay it a second thought on the waiver wire, but it does have some especially favorable matchups coming up, going against the Jaguars, Titans, Redskins and Rams over the next four weeks. At least for that first matchup, it's worth a flier in all leagues.


Giants DST unit gets little help in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Giants defense put together a solid performance in Week 11 against the 49ers, but got little help from the offense in a 16-10 loss.

The Giants held the 49ers offense to 333 yards in the game, and held them out of the end zone on all four of their trips to the red zone. However, the 49ers were able to dominate the time of possession as the Giants' offense turned the ball over five times in the loss. The Giants DST unit came away from the game with one turnover and one sack.

The Giants DST unit came away from the game with just 7 Fantasy points, their sixth in a row in single figures. They will take on the Cowboys in Week 12. 


Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul not worried over free agency


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who's on the final year of his contract, told reporters Friday he's worried more about snapping New York's four-game losing skid than contract negotiations, ESPN reported. Both sides have yet to have any discussions about a new extension this season.

"To be honest with you, I'm not worried about my contract situation," Pierre-Paul said after Giants practice Friday. "It's going to take care of itself. If I'm here, I'm here. If I'm not, I'm not. I don't think about it. I go home and sleep good at night."


Pierre-Paul on Giants' problems: 'It is all about heart'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Just a few days after his teammate safety Antrel Rolle questioned his team's effort in a 40-24 Monday night loss against the Colts, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul told reporters Friday that the team did not have enough "heart," per ESPN. With the Week 9 defeat, the Giants have dropped three consecutive games and are 3-5 on the season, three games behind Philadelphia for first place in the NFC East.

"Honestly, it is not all about attitude, it is all about heart," Pierre-Paul said Thursday, when asked about the Giants' attitude heading into the second half of the season. "You can have the attitude, you can have the swagger, you can talk your way, but it is all about heart. If you don’t have the heart to play this game, then we are going to continue losing.

"That is with every guy, every guy has to challenge their self to play more and do more than what they expect," he continued. "When it comes down to it, it is all about heart. If you don’t have heart, that is something you can’t give a player, you just have to have it."


Giants DST fares about as you'd expect


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/4/2014) Facing the league's most prolific offense in terms of both yards and points per game, the Giants DST didn't have a prayer Week 9 against Indianapolis. It allowed 40 points on 448 yards, recording one sack.

It was only the third time this season that the Giants have allowed more than 30 points in the game, but they've now done it in back-to-back games.

Though they've done a pretty good job of creating turnovers this season, particularly with their 11 interceptions, the Giants aren't the most consistent team defensively. With a tough matchup Week 10 at Seattle, you should avoid their DST in Fantasy.


Giants ready to lean on Jameel McClain at middle linebacker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) With the news Giants linebacker Jon Beason will need season-ending surgery, coach Tom Coughlin indicated Monday that Jameel McClain will start at middle linebacker moving forward. McClain has totaled 40 tackles (21 solo), two pass defenses and 1/2 sack through seven games.

Giants LB Jon Beason headed for season-ending surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Giants linebacker Jon Beason suffered a ligament tear and a small fracture to his sesamoid bone, the same injury he suffered back in June. He is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his toe, according to Newsday on Monday. The procedure has not yet been scheduled.

Beason only appeared in four games and ends his season with 11 combined tackles.


Giants LB Jon Beason to visit foot specialist again


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Giants linebacker Jon Beason is expected to make another visit to the foot specialist this week, coach Tom Coughlin told reporters during his Monday news conference, according to the New York Daily News. Beason had only 17 defensive snaps before his toe gave out again in a Week 7 defeat to the Cowboys.

The Giants have a bye week before returning to action Week 9 against Indianapolis.


Report: Giants DL Cullen Jenkins to miss time with strained calf


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Giants defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins left the locker room following Sunday's loss at Dallas on crutches and with his right leg in a walking boot, according to the New York Post. Jenkins is expected to miss some time due to a strained calf, which he suffered late in the first quarter while running.

"Then you realize there was nobody behind you and you’re just like, "Aww, man,'" Jenkins said.


Giants can't slow down Cowboys


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Though the defense wasn't really to blame for the Giants getting shut out Week 6 at Philadelphia, it didn't help things either, allowing 27 points on 448 yards. Unfortunately, it was just as bad Week 7 at Dallas, allowing 31 points on 423 yards.

The Giants DST did at least record two sacks, both by Jason Pierre-Paul, and one interception, but it wasn't enough to redeem the performance in Fantasy. After a strong showing Week 4 at Washington, it has been mostly disappointing in Fantasy.

The Giants are on bye in Week 8 before returning to another tough matchup Week 9 against Indianapolis, so their DST should remain on waivers in Fantasy.


Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie misses another practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did not practice for a second straight day Thursday. He is listed on the injury report with ankle and hamstring injuries.

The Giants play NFC East rival Dallas in Week 7.


Giants will try Jayron Hosley in nickel cornerback role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) With Walter Thurmond (pectoral) and Trumaine McBride (thumb) on injured reserve, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Jayron Hosley will be the next player getting the chance to lock down the role as the team's nickel corner.

"He will have an opportunity," Coughlin said, per the New York Daily News.


Interceptions the only plus for Giants DST


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) Instead of the Giants defense taking advantage of a struggling Nick Foles Week 6 at Philadelphia, Foles took advantage of the Giants defense, leading the Eagles to 27 points on 448 yards, the most the Giants have allowed in a game this season.

They did intercept Foles twice to give them an NFL-leading 10 picks on the season, all in their last four games. They also had one sack.

With all those interceptions, the Giants defense gives itself a better chance than most of scoring a touchdown in a given week, but because it has yet to contribute one yet, the Giants DST remains just a low-end unit in Fantasy. It shouldn't really be on your radar for Week 7 at Dallas.


Giants CB Trumaine McBride will require thumb surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Giants defensive back Trumaine McBride will need surgery to repair his right thumb, head coach Tom Coughlin told the media on Monday, per the Record. McBride sustained the injury late in a Week 6 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. The team will likely establish a timetable for his return soon after the procedure.

McBride posted two force fumbles, and interception and 21 combined tackles before the injury.


Giants LB Jon Beason, CB Rodgers-Cromartie return to practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Giants linebacker Jon Beason (foot, toe) and defensive back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (leg) both returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, per the New York Post.

Beason has missed three consecutive games because of an injury to his foot. Rodgers-Cromartie has been dealing with a leg injury since the Washington game in Week 4. Both players appear to be on track for Week 6 at Philadelphia.


Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie getting tests done in his leg


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is undergoing tests on his leg, head coach Tom Coughlin told the media on Monday, per Newsday. Coughlin wouldn't specify the extent of the injury but indicated that it's not exactly an ankle ailment.

The Giants will face the Eagles in Week 6.


Giants DST does nothing flashy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) The Giants didn't put up stellar numbers on the defensive side of the ball in Week 5, but considering they were going against the high-scoring Falcons, they had respectable showing. Though the Falcons took a 20-10 lead in the third quarter, they were shut out the rest of the way, accumulating 397 yards in all.

The Giants didn't take advantage of the Falcons injury-depleted offensive line, though, equaling a season-low with just one sack. One week after recording four interceptions, they picked off quarterback Matt Ryan once, giving them eight interceptions in their last three games.

Because of the late rally, the Giants DST didn't really hurt its Fantasy value with this performance, but with another tough matchup Week 6 at Philadelphia, it's probably a unit to avoid right now.
