Want the short reason? Just look at what the Giants did for Martellus Bennett’s value. But you want more explanation than that; I know. First, Myers was the 10th-highest scoring TE with 105 FP… and with Carson Palmer at QB! Palmer’s best season since 2007 was on par with Eli Manning’s worst since 2008. We’re also talking about the Giants offense versus the Raiders offense – a Giants offense with two premiere WRs and a passing offense that’s averaged a Top 10 finish over the past four years. The counter argument will be that Myers did so well because he was the Raiders main option, as seen with his team-leading receptions (79) and yards (806). Well, just imagine what Myers can do when defenders have to respect two other options on the field, and Eli puts up numbers somewhere in between 2012 and 2011.
