New York Giants 2019 NFL outlook: Schedule, players to watch & more

The New York Giants come into the 2019 season with a different looking team from just one season ago.

The team traded away Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon during the offseason and acquired Jabrill Peppers and Golden Tate. The offense looks a bit depleted without Beckham but the team does still have the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley and returning players Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram.

Eli Manning’s time as the Giants quarterback could be coming to an end fairly soon. The Giants, to much of their fans’ immediate disappointment, selected Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick of the draft and appeared to prove in the preseason that he isn’t what the fans thought he’d be.

New York also has a different look on defense with two rookies – Dexter Lawrence and Deandre Baker – who appear to be the season-opening starters against the Dallas Cowboys.

There should be zero expectations for the Giants going into the 2019 season as they continue to rebuild.
