Fantasy Tip: Donnell has more experience than Tye and may be more of an offensive threat, but Tye appears to be a more well-rounded tight end. Donnell would be a No. 2 tight end for fantasy owners if he wins the job but his value mostly depends on his touchdowns. Tye probably would only be a low-end No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he expects to offense to score more points in 2016 and believes they will be able to score at least 28 points per game. Manning believes the addition of WR Sterling Shepard and the return of WR Victor Cruz and TE Larry Donnell will help the passing game.
Fantasy Tip: Manning is coming off a solid 2015 season where he threw for 4,436 yards and 35 touchdowns in 16 games. He has thrown for at least 4,000 in five of their last seven seasons but still struggles with interceptions. Manning should be a solid No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) missed the entire spring practice sessions due to a lower leg injury, and that set him back in the pecking order among the team's tailbacks. He is expected to battle RB Andre Williams for the No. 3 job, while RB Bobby Rainey is also in the mix. The team invested a fifth round pick on RB Paul Perkins, so he is expected to make the team, too.
Fantasy Tip: The winner of the No. 3 job will be behind Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen on the depth chart, so they can mostly be avoided in all fantasy leagues initially.

Fantasy Tip: Williams hasn't played to his full potential in his first two seasons, but he did have a solid rookie campaign two years ago. Darkwa hasn't really done much in New York, and he may be the odd man out. Williams is the more intriguing fantasy option, but even he should be viewed as a late-round flier.

New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard appears to be an "instant-impact player" and was one of the receivers to impress the team during the spring. WR Darius Powe and WR Roger Lewis - a pair of undrafted rookie free agents from California and Bowling Green, respectively - have also caught the coaching staff's eye as well.
Fantasy Tip: With Victor Cruz still a question mark and Rueben Randle no longer on the roster, there is a boatload of potential targets for the taking in New York opposite Odell Beckham Jr. Shepard possesses a 41-inch vertical jump to go along with perhaps the best combination of route-running chops and hands in this draft class. Assuming he lands the starting job as expected, Shepard is a good bet to perform at a WR3 level this season.

New York Giants DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa worked on the interior of the defensive line during spring practices, working alongside DT Johnathan Hankins in nickel pass-rushing defenses. His role might be similar to how the team used DE-LB Mathias Kiwanuka.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is about 20 months removed from his torn patellar tendon, which is an injury many players never return to form from. He has a few hurdles to clear, but he's a WR5 flyer in fantasy if he's healthy.

Free-agent OT Eugene Monroe (Ravens) is expected to receive serious interest from the New York Giants now that he is an unrestricted free agent. The Giants were interested in trading for Monroe but did not want to pick up his salary.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is about 20 months removed from his torn patellar tendon, which is an injury many players never return to form after suffering it. He has a few hurdles to clear, but he's a WR5 flyer in fantasy if he's healthy.
