Giants appear to be planning on more 2-TE sets
- On Saturday, Jordan Raanan noted that the Giants were working on more two-TE sets than in the past, along with using a fullback.
- This would be a complete change-up for a team that led the league using 11 personnel (one RB, one TE), doing so at a rate of 90 percent in 2016.
- Newly signed Rhett Ellison looks to take playing time away from Will Tye and pair with first-round pick Evan Engram if the Giants are in 12 personnel.
- New York coveted Engram’s receiving ability, he led the 2017 tight end class with 2.59 yards per route run.
- Ellison brings his blocking ability to the position. When Minnesota used him last season he ran a pass route just 27 percent of the time. While he’s played fullback in the past, it has been just 16 percent of his career snaps.
