The Giants had an awful year defensively last season, ranking 31st overall. The good news was they allowed 21.5 points per game, which wasn't too bad considering all the yards they allowed. But either way, it was a really poor showing for a normally good defense. The Giants had plenty of injuries along the line and the secondary, though. New York needs defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck playing at the level they are capable, a level than can be very good. The secondary also needs cornerbacks Prince Amukamara to take his game to a new level. He has all sorts of talent but hasn't emerged yet as that elite cornerback. The special teams has a lot of upside and potential with David Wilson and Reuben Randle handling the return duties. Both these guys are explosive and big-play threat with the ball in their hands. Fantasy Outlook: The Giants have a lot of talent on the defense side of the ball and we expect them to play better from day one this season. They are a legit starter for fantasy teams, mainly because of their top sack potential and return game. The Giants aren't an elite unit but just outside that group in our eyes.
