2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-15-2014 by Rob Warner
The Giants' defense allowed 24 points per game last season.They were solid against the pass (10th in the NFL) and mediocre against the run (14th). This DST finished 16th in fantasy scoring with the unit posting 34 sacks, 17 interceptions, 12 fumble recoveries and three touchdowns. Jason Pierre-Paul says he's back to 100-percent after a shoulder injury limited him to just two sacks over 11 games. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract and hopes to return to his 2011 form (16.5 sacks) after two mediocre seasons (just 8.5 sacks over the past two years). They are not expecting to have top LB Jon Beason back for Week 1 after he suffered a foot injury in June. The secondary receives a boost with the addition of former Broncos CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. DRC will pair with Prince Amukamara to form a solid tandem. The G-Men have ranked among the bottom of the league in sacks over the past two seasons (averaging 33 sacks per season). Bringing their pass rush back to the upper echelon of the league (fourth in the league in 2011 with 48 sacks) will go a long way in making this defense relevant for fantasy purpose. The Giants are a backup DST with some potential to become a low DST1 if their pass rush gets back on track.
