Nothing earth-shattering here. QB is set for now. Hopefully that doesn’t change for a few years. The WRs are just as advertised. Everyone will get opportunities. The Giants like going three-wide and with only five players at the position, there’s plenty of snaps to go around.
On the OL, Pugh in for Diehl at RT for at least the first four games and maybe for good depending on how things go. No direct backup for Beatty, but Diehl and Brewer have both played there. Mosley can play anywhere on the line, having been a tackle in college.
Myers is the primary TE, but if his blocking becomes an issue, it could cut into his reps. Robinson might be out a few weeks, and Hynoski may not be 100% for awhile, which cuts into Pascoe’s time as a TE. That means Donnell will be called upon to produce early on.
Da’Rel Scott is listed as the No.2 RB, which should be a great comfort to all, since he is still largely untested. Michael Cox might be stepping into a bigger role sooner than expected. Brown will be back in Week 10 if all goes well with him.
