The NFL is kicking into gear tonight with the NFL Hall of Fame Game between the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills. By way of simple arithmetic, that also means fantasy football is underway. Sort of...
It's time we can scout player in live action and make adjustments in our projections before our real drafts. You should keep your eyes wide open for each player to see who has potential. But these are the five players you should be taking
There's a plethora of wide receivers in Buffalo this season, and it seems there's only room for a couple to flourish. Goodwin is coming in the game as the WR3, so keep an eye on him to see how the quarterbacks target him.
With some added weapons this offseason, and a year on his shoulders, Manuel could be a surprise player this year. The Giants lack the defensive depth their used to having—look for him to take advantage in the pocket, but also make headway with his legs. If he can't produce here, it may be a sign to stay away this year.
He's coming into the game as the TE1, but he's never played an offensive down. His inexperience will be put to the test, but at 6-foot-4, he might be able to make some mismatches and become Eli Manning's red-zone target. Hopefully he gets the majority of playing time.
Beckham is one of my favorite rookies this season. He has great potential to automatically replace Hakeem Nicks this season, and as a rookie, I'm sure he'll be tested out often tonight. A few of the Giants WRs (e.g. Victor Cruz) shined in pre-season games and foreshadowed later success. Hopefully he can follow suit.
Of course...Sammy Watkins. After making spectacular catches at practice, and showcasing his blazing speed, it's time to see what he can do in live action. We know he can run and catch, but competing with other receivers and defenders is another thing entirely. Look out for how often Manuel targets his rookie WR to see what relationship has already been fostered.
