2018 Giants Season Preview & NFL Futures Lines
Looking for 2018 New York Giants predictions? We’ve got your back. It is going to be hard for the Giants to compete with the defending champs this season but after last year’s debacle they are just looking to get things on a better footing and provide some hope for the future. Eli Manning does not have too much left in the tank but if he surrounded by a healthy team around him and their top pick is the game changer they think they are getting I can see this team being respectable.

2018 New York Giants Predictions: Roster Changes
The Giants had the second pick in the draft and chose running back Saquon Barkley. On paper that looks like the biggest addition but improvement along the offensive line were also made. Nate Solder was made the highest paid lineman in the league I believe.
Throw in a guard they drafted in the second round in Will Hernandez and the Giants are committed to running more and better this season.
On defense BJ Hill is a third rounder they are expecting to start this season. He could be a steal after playing in Bradley Chubb’s shadow at NC State.
Alec Ogletree was acquired from the Rams in a trade and should add some speed to the linebacking corp. A number of free agents were brought in to improve the secondary.
The most notable loss for the Giants this offseason was Jason Pierre-Paul. He has enjoyed a nice career but is just not the same player he was.
Three veteran offensive lineman were let go but the idea was to improve in that most important of position.
2018 New York Giants Predictions: Offense
If you believe in triplets than the trio of Manning, Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. is alright though I think OBJ is a bit overrated.
The biggest unknown in that group is Barkley. He looks very explosive based on his college career and measurables but he is a rookie so you can’t know for sure. There is a lot of pressure on him too.
There is underestimating the value of a strong offensive line. New York has invested a lot in this area and if it pays off it will make the biggest difference.
Evan Engram is never going to be a masher of a blocker at TE but he could be a dynamic playmaker. He is the only guy with size in terms of the pass catchers really. OBJ is great in the air but a rangy target still have a lot of value.
2018 New York Giants Predictions: Defense
The Giants have some beef up front in their 3-4 front but none of their linemen are proven pass rushers. I know you can expect some heat from the edge but Olivier Vernon is not enough of a difference maker in that regard. They play to free up their linebackers to make plays so Ogletree will rack up a lot of tackles.
In the secondary Landon Collins is one of the best players in the league, at safety – a definite difference maker. The corners are good but Eli Apple has only one interception in two years in the league. He should probably be more aggressive.
2018 New York Giants Handicapping: (Strengths/Weaknesses)
Last year was a disaters for the G-Men. They lost a couple of close games early and then kind of fell off the rails. In comes a new coach and hopefully a breath of fresh air that gives the team some more optimism.
The biggest challenge is that there is not one thing the Giants can really count on. OBJ can be electric but he can also be a headache. On defense Collins is good but there is no unit that looks like it is going to dominate.
The total is low but a lot higher than last year’s record. The key might be divisional games. Odds are they lose both to Philly and I only see that total as reachable if they take three of four from Dallas and Washington. Overs more than unders seem the way to go, especially if Barkley is the real deal.
2018 New York Giants Prediction (Final Record): 3-13
This team might be better but improving on their record is going to be tough. Getting the AFC South as a crossover is suddenly tough with Jacksonville and Tennessee playoff teams a year ago, Houston on the rise and Andrew Luck back in Indy.
If Barkley justifies his selection and the offensive line is strong then they will be in every game this season but winning more than they did a year ago just doesn’t look like it is in the cards.
