"Whose Target Is It Anyway?" - New York Giants

Written by: Derek Tate

    Odell Beckham Jr (ADP WR3/Overall 5)
    • Has posted a minimum of 91+ receptions, 1300+ yards and 10+ TDs all three seasons of his career.
    • Marshall may dip into targets a bit, but should help draw coverage away from him.
    • Two Redskin WRs went for 1000 yards last season.
    • Odell is a bonafide elite option at WR. Draft with utmost confidence in the 1st round.

    • Brandon Marshall (ADP WR31/Overall 73)
    • Hasn’t seen fewer than 100 targets since 2006.
    • First time in career as the #2 WR on his team, which is likely to help him at this point in his career.
    • Fewest rushing TDs in NFL in 2016. Marshall could see a significant amount of red zone looks.

    • Sterling Shepard (ADP WR51/Overall 131)
    • Shepard finished second to Michael Thomas among rookie WRs in receptions (65), TDs (8) and targets.
    • With changes at the outside WR spots and health concern for Reed, Crowder has crept inside the top 30 at the WR position for ADP.
    • The arrival of Marshall and Engram will likely dip into his TD total
    • Eli finished finished two attempts shy of 600 passing attempts last season.
    • Shepard is a safe bet to see 90+ targets and 50 receptions, making him well worth a late selection in PPR formats.

    • Evan Engram (ADP TE14/Overall 128)
    • First round selection in this year’s NFL Draft.
    • Current ADP has him coming off the board before Antonio Gates, Eric Ebron and Coby Fleener.
    • Rookie TEs rarely make a fantasy splash in their rookie season. However, Engram has WR type skills at the TE spot. He could make an impact in the red zone, but I don’t see enough targets to make him a top 15 TE this year.
