The New York Giants struggled during the 2019 season, finishing with a 4-12 record. Much of this is due to the injuries to many of their offensive weapons. But with the team getting healthy over the offseason, the offensive unit is expected to take steps forward under new head coach Joe Judge.

It is a time for optimism for Giants fans, especially now after the release of ESPN’s offensive weapons rankings. Fans will be excited to see that they come in ranked No. 7.

After an up and down rookie season, quarterback Daniel Jones is hoping an improved offensive line and healthy receivers will help him take big strides in 2020. Despite all of the adversity “Danny Dimes” still passed for 3,027 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 13 games.

Evan Engram may be the most talented receiver on the team, while he plays tight end. He is a mismatch nightmare for defenses, and the only thing that seems to stop him is his own body. Engram has missed 13 games over the past two seasons.

Sterling Shepard returns as the top wide receiver, veteran Golden Tate continues to be consistently solid, and last season’s fifth-round rookie Darius Slayton was the surprise breakout nobody saw coming.

Of course, the top offensive weapon on the Giants for 2020 is third-year running back Saquon Barkley. The running back has totaled over 1,000 rushing yards in both of his seasons and, despite dealing with an ankle injury last season, he still averaged over 100 total yards per game.

While the defense may be less than average, this Giants offense has the potential to be one of the most dangerous in the NFL.
