    The task for the Giants will be made more difficult, both for Eli and Daniel, because the top 3 receivers have issues:

    0) Odell Beckham Jr. is gone
    1) Sterling Shephard - Broken finger (tip)
    2) Golden Tate - 4 game suspension (appeal pending)
    3) Corey Coleman - ACL Injury - Out for the year

    The Giants had WR problem before any of them got hurt. Sterling Shepard is a fine player, but not a #1 receiver. Tate's a shadow of what he once was, his best days are behind him (still a respectable receiver, but also not a good option for a #1).

    On the bright side, Jones should have no trouble tossing it to Barkley...

    Not if other teams recognize that none of the WRs are a threat. They will put their best cover LB on Barkley and try to shut him down.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Therefore...maybe it's best that DJ sit for a while and let Eli deal with the woeful WR issue...

    Per Sports Radio, during my afternoon drive, Jamison Crowder left Jets practice on a cart due to a foot injury. No additional details available pending MRI results.

    Here's new #Redskins RB Shaun Wilson. Already crowded position but definite speed factor showed up each time I saw him.
    Good luck to Shaun!

    Golden Tate was on pace for his usual production in 2018 while with Detroit. After getting traded to the Eagles they clearly never figured out how to use him. To say he's a "shadow of what he once was" based off not getting used properly after a mid-season trade... is a huge stretch.

    The Giants are certainly not strong at WR (and much less so if Tate is missing some time) but Shepard could be ready for the start of the season and no one was really counting on Coleman. They have an exceptional pass catching back and an above average TE. They should do fine.

    Ok, that was phrased a little too strongly. I think what I really meant is that he had his huge pro-bowl year several years ago and has never looked quite that good since (he has been a solid but not spectacular receiver).

    "Should do fine" is relative, I guess, but it doesn't look like a team that will improve on their 2018 record to me.

    It's not that hard to improve on 5 wins but they might struggle to do it.

    They are eating a lot of dead money this year (like $35m in cap space on players on other teams) and they are going to eat the last year of Eli's contract instead of spreading it out. I still think they improved in a lot of important areas (offensive line in particular). 2019 might still be a struggle but I think they've put themselves in a good position going forward and hopefully that means Daniel Jones gets a good opportunity to take the lead of the team in 2020.

    The #49ers have claimed TE Daniel Helm off waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers. In order to make room on the roster, the team has released TE Niles Paul.

    I listened to Jay Gruden question and answer session on local Sports Radio and he had some solid comments on T.J. Rahming. Gruden stated (paraphrasing) Rahming is showing flashes of being a really, really good slot receiver. He has great hands and knows how to run routes...he was very productive at Duke. The preseason games will be very important for a guy like Rahming because the things he is showing in practice have to translate to games.

    Gruden's comments were in response to a question about how important preseason games would be for Rahming who is impressing in practice.

    Interesting comments by another G-man 1st round pick, Dexter Lawrence, who happens to be DJ's roommate.

    Jones's receivers dropped 39 passes during his career, and FBS best! Nice article here...

    Really good article, thanks for sharing.

    The 39 balls dropped must be for the 2018 season only. There is almost no way 39 dropped balls would be the most of any QB over 3 years (well, I guess maybe if there were only a handful of other 3 years starters...it certainly would not be the most for any team over that span). It would definitely be astronomically high for a single season though.
