Giants implementing new weapon into stalling offense

The New York Giants’ offense has been nothing short of disastrous so far this season, but they are hoping to ignite some offense out of a returning piece in their wide receiver room. That piece is Wan’Dale Robinson, whose rookie season got cut short last year due to a torn ACL.

Wan’Dale Robinson returns to the lineup

Robinson made his return in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, catching three passes for 20 yards, and followed that up with a five-catch, 40-yard performance Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

With the Giants really struggling to score points, Robinson could quickly become a cog in Brian Daboll’s system as they are scrambling for answers to fix what has gone wrong. New York is tied for dead last in the NFL in passing touchdowns with just two through the team’s first four games.

As running back Saquon Barkley’s health is still in question, the Giants are going to have to improve massively in the passing game if they want to get their season back on track.

Robinson bringing much-needed production to the Giants’ offense

With little production coming out of the receiving group, Robinson could be tasked with being that playmaker they have been missing.

He could also serve as a decoy on offense to get new star tight end Darren Waller more targets. Waller only got three targets (all completions) Monday night against the Seahawks and recorded just 21 yards. He is also still looking for his first touchdown as a member of the Giants.

New York has to turn things around now, as their schedule does not get any easier, with the Miami Dolphins on deck and the Buffalo Bills to follow.

If they want a turnaround to commence, they will need to get the most out of Robinson.
