  • Five New York Giants who could be primed for breakout seasons

    https://www.bigblueview.com/2018/5/1...olivier-vernon

    Excerpt: "Which players are the most likely candidates to have breakout seasons for the New York Giants in 2018? Well, before you can answer the question you have to define the parameters of what qualifies as a breakout season.

    Bleacher Report has chosen rookie running back Saquon Barkley as the Giant most likely to have a breakout season. Granted, a healthy Barkley could produce in the neighborhood of 1,500 yards of total offense — maybe more. Still, I can’t consider Barkley a “breakout” candidate.

    Breaking out from what? For me, you can’t be a breakout candidate if you have never played in the NFL — if you have nothing to break out from. Breakout candidates, for me, are guys who have been in the league and established a performance baseline. Exceeding that can be considered a breakout.

    With that in mind, here are five players I consider candidates for breakout 2018 seasons with the Giants. Cody Latimer

    The Giants signed Latimer as a free agent for a few reasons.
    • His prowess on special teams as a punt gunner.
    • His experience, limited though it is with 18 returns in four seasons.
    • His upside as a big-bodied wide receiver.

    It is this last point that makes him a candidate to be a breakout player. Latimer had a career-high 19 receptions for the Denver Broncos on 31 targets, which also equated to a career-best 61.3 percent catch rate.

    Nineteen catches, though, doesn’t exactly equate to a breakout year. There could be far more opportunities for Latimer with the Giants. Right now, he looks like the favorite to be the No. 3 wide receiver next to Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. If Latimer earns that spot and remains healthy, could a 40-50 catch season be possible?" Read more...

          The Giant that has to breakout is Eli Apple or it's going to be a long, long year. He is really the key non-rookie on the team. Coverage will be awful if he's bad. Teams will just avoid Jenkins and attack the other spots.

                WOW! I'm actually going to agree with you for once. DG made a mess in the secondary. I don't care what anyone says, Jenkins, DRC and C0ckrell were a solid unit. Sure, last year the entire team fell off the cliff, but the offense kept expecting the defense to bail them out.

                It finally caught up to them. Jenkins is the only assurance back there. I don't think DG tried hard enough to negotiate with DRC, if at all, and letting C0ckrell walk was dumb. Like i said in another post, they better have one hell of a pass rush this season or teams are going to feast on the other corners.

                      Latimer may surprise but King but king would have have worked out next to Odell.

                        Big Blue Wrecking Crew Message board will have a breakout year. It will become the number 1 NYG fan forum.
