Fantasy Impact Of The New Offensive Coordinators For 2014

Ben McAdoo - New York Giants

After 10 years in Green Bay, Ben McAdoo gets his first opportunity to be an offensive coordinator with the New York Giants. Both McAdoo and the Giants spent the early part of the decade hoisting the Lombardi trophy, and that is the stated goal of the Giants in 2014. Another stated goal of McAdoo's is to make a Top Four quarterback out of Eli Manning. A new voice in the headset went a long way for Jay Cutler and Phillip Rivers in 2013, so it stands to reason that an equally talented player will have simlar results in 2014. McAdoo has no experience as a coordinator, so there is no record to make a clear prediction about the type of system McAdoo will run, but it's seems clear it will resemble a west coast style. This means, the Giants will spread the ball to more players and emphasize the screen game. It should be expected that Maning will improve on his 27 interceptions and 57 percent completion rate from 2013. This also mean additional touches for players lower on the depth chart like Odell Beckham and Jerrell Jernigan.
