Giants hire Dave Gettleman as GM
Former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman is back in the NFL and has a big task in front of him.
The two-win Giants announced Thursday they have hired Gettleman as the team’s new GM.
Giants co-owner John Mara fired GM Jerry Reese, along with coach Ben McAdoo after the team dropped to 2-10 on the season with a loss to the Raiders. Mara said he wants to hire a new GM before bringing aboard a new coach.
Gettleman to the Giants makes perfect sense �C he worked for the organization under former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi for more than 10 years, and Accorsi, who is consulting with Mara during the hiring process, holds Gettleman in high regard, having recommended him for the Panthers job.
Alvin Kamara wound up on the greatest percentage of ESPN playoff teams’ as well as finalists’ rosters, landing on 77.4 percent of the former and 48.3 percent of the latter, so predictably he ended up on the second-highest percentage of championship rosters (24.1 percent). A 30.8 PPR-fantasy-point Week 17 surely had a lot to say about that, but Kamara’s historic, 320.4-point rookie campaign at the price of a waiver pickup in most leagues largely propelled him to that status. He did, however, also suffer the third-largest drop-off in terms of percentage placement on champions’ compared to finalists’ rosters, 24.2 percent, which trailed only Greg Zuerlein’s 34.6 and Alfred Morris’ 24.5.
Two other Week 17 standouts understandably had large says in their teams’ championship quests, as top individual scorer JuJu Smith-Schuster (35.3 PPR fantasy points, found on 23.8 percent of championship rosters) and No. 3 scorer Dion Lewis (31.3 points, 21.4 percent) joined Gurley and Kamara as the only players this season to land on at least 20 percent of ESPN champions’ rosters.
Streaming members of the San Francisco 49ers’ passing game was an apparently good strategy during the 2017 fantasy football playoffs, as Marquise Goodwin wound up on 16.8 percent of ESPN championship rosters, third highest among wide receivers, while Jimmy Garoppolo landed on 16.0 percent, highest among quarterbacks. That makes sense, considering Garoppolo’s 72.26 PPR fantasy points during Weeks 14-17 were third most among quarterbacks, while Goodwin’s 57.5 points during that four-week span were 12th most among wide receivers.
