1. New York Giants

If there was ever a team that needed a number one wide receiver it is the New York Giants. The Giants exceeded all expectations in 2022 by not only making the playoffs but winning a playoff game in Brian Daboll's first season as head coach.

Daniel Jones had the best year of his career to secure more time in New York and now the Giants' brass have to figure out a way to get talent around him. The team has the cap space to make it work, having the third-most projected cap in the league this offseason.

New York can also cut more cap space as well. The team can free up $6.7 million by cutting Kenny Golladay, who was a bust of a signing for the Giants. That not only opens up more money, but opens a spot in the receiver room to fill with Keenan Allen.

The Giants would also likely prioritize trading for DeAndre Hopkins first but with the Bears having more to offer, the Giants are the more realistic team to take a different trade with Allen instead. New York has an extra third-round pick thanks to the Kadarius Toney trade.

Getting an adult on the offensive side of the ball who can lead with his veteran experience as well as his production on the field would be fantastic for Jones and this Giants offense. Daboll mastered the smart, conservative offensive style with Jones this season and having an outlet like Allen would make a world of a difference.
