Found May 01, 2012 on Win My Fantasy League:
And the rich get richer. The New York Giants got some serious value in the first two rounds of the draft picking up a top-3 running back prospect in David Wilson and a top-10 wideout prospect in Reuben Randle. Wilson will get an ample opportunity to carve out a significant workload in the Giants backfield with Brandon jacobs now in San Francisco. Wilson has enough talent to be a starter from day one but will likely have to wait for an inevitable Ahmad Bradshaw injury before he can take the reins in the backfield a la DeMarco Murray last year. Wilson is a tenacious burner with solid vision and balance. Here is what other said about Wilson: Yahoo “National Football Post: Wilson can be dynamic in the open field. He possesses elite speed, makes defenders miss and accelerates well out of his breaks. He needs to do a better job taking what the defense gives him between the tackles. Can be the home-run threat the Giants lack at RB. NFL ceiling: Dynamic starter with big-play potential. NF...

Draft Grades: New York Giants

With so few holes, I expected the New York Giants to simply target the best available player – a strategy which Jerry Reese has used frequently in the past – but he strayed from his typical approach and it may come back to haunt him down the road. David Wilson was a reach, and there’s really no way to sugar coat that. The fact that Reese would reach for Wilson raises a serious...

NEW YORK -Ding. Ding. Round three of the annual Osi Umenyiora vs. Jerry Reece title bout is underway. As reported, during the NFL draft festivities, Reece, the Giants GM proclaimed his love for Osi.

Osi Umenyiora comments don’t bother Jerry Reese

In an interview with ESPN Radio in New York via the New York Daily News, Giants general manager made it clear that he doesn’t take Osi Umenyiora’s critisicm of him personnel.  He dismissed Osi’s comments by saying that it’s just  “offseason chatter”. “I don’t carry grudges,” Reese insisted. “That’s the offseason. That’s part of the job. In the offseason...

Osi Umenyiora says Giants making him look like a ‘greedy pig’ during negotiations

The situation between Osi Umenyiora and the Giants seems to get uglier by the day. With the depth the Giants have along their Super Bowl-winning front seven, they aren’t in a position where they have to overpay for a player like Umenyiora. In fact, they don’t necessarily have to even pay full value for someone like him. That has created a lot of tension between Osi and the front...

Giants Steal Rueben Randle

The New York Giants snatched wide receiver Rueben Randle from the board with the No. 63 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: This will go down as being one of the biggest steals of the Draft, and some experts even believe that Randle is the most physically-gifted receiver in the class. He could develop into a No. 1 fantasy receiver, but not in New York with studs Hakeem Nicks...

Eli Manning’s funny SNL promos

Steelers already the hottest ticket for 2012 season

Although it seems like just a few weeks ago that Eli Manning and the Giants hoisted another Lombardi trophy at the conclusion of the 2011-12 NFL season, tomorrow marks the first of May.  With another NFL draft weekend behind us--and OTAs & Rookie Minicamps just around the corner--now its time to look ahead to the 2012-13 season.  Our partners at TiqIQ have done the same and...

Redskins sign free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff, who played three seasons with the New York Giants before missing last year with a knee injury. Goff was a fifth-round selection by the Giants in 2008. He became a full-time starter in 2010, but he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee shortly before the season opener a year ago and was placed...

If Ole Miss Quarterbacks Could Stop Throwing ALL THE INTERCEPTIONS, That Would Be Great

Eli Manning is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend, and as long as Doug Buckles isn't in the building, things should go fine for him.  If not, well, it doesn't always go so well when those two are near each other: Anyway, good for Eli.  His Super Bowl victories and MVPs are mostly responsible for him getting asked to do the show, but I think he deserved the...

Raiders bringing in Jim Sorgi for a work out

According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Oakland Raiders are bringing veteran quarterback Jim Sorgi for a work out on Tuesday.

Before his brief stint with the Giants he backed up Peyton Manning with the...

Eli Manning prepares to host 'Saturday Night Live'

Eli Manning says he didn't want to host ''Saturday Night Live'' after his first Super Bowl victory because it came so soon after big brother Peyton's appearance a year earlier. Manning recalled Wednesday that he sent word back to the show's executives that perhaps he'd host if he won another championship. Sure enough, the New York Giants quarterback...
