The New York Giants Mount Rushmore This Year In Fantasy

Featured article by Guest Blogger Anthony Corso

If you ask anyone associated with the New York Giants heading into the 2015 season, they genuinely feel that they have what it takes to win their division. The NFC East is going to be challenging, but New York made some decent moves to get ready for the new season. Here is a look at their week long fantasy football money leagues Mount Rushmore for 2015.

Odell Beckham Jr.
After being one of the most impressive rookies in the NFL last year, Beckham has evolved into an absolute star at the wide receiver position. He is going to go somewhere in the 15-20 range overall in season leagues this year. In week long fantasy football money leagues, he will be targeted quite a bit as well. His athleticism makes him a matchup nightmare for any team.

Rashad Jennings
The running game for New York isn’t great, but Jennings should be the best of the bunch. Yes, he’s 30 years old and coming off an injury-plagued 2014 season, but he is the best all-around option on the roster. Wait for him starting in the 5th round at the earliest.

Shane Vereen
New York is hoping that Vereen can come over and provide value right away as their second best running back. Of course, he is just as valuable as a receiver as he is a rusher. If he can get over 400 yards each way, owners in week long fantasy football money leagues will be happy with him as a middle rounder.

Andre Williams
It might seem weird to have a third running back ahead of Victor Cruz and Eli Manning, but that is just how fantasy football works. Williams was just a rookie last year, but he was able to show his talent near the goal line. Seven touchdowns this year would be nice, but he will probably not reach that level. Overall, Vereen is going to dip into some of his usage, but he is still a top 100 fantasy football player.
