  Giants | Kenny Golladay does little in primetime    Fri Sep 17, 01:09 AM

New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay caught three of eight targeted passes for 38 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Golladay is still having trouble getting on the same page with Daniel Jones and the two were seen getting testy with each other on the sideline during the game. We would still play Golladay next week against the Falcons, but if he doesn't come through against them, it could be time to bench him in fantasy leagues.

  Giants | Darius Slayton scores in Week 2    Fri Sep 17, 12:56 AM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton logged three receptions, 54 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 2 loss to the Washington Football Team. Slayton was targeted six times.

Footballguys view: Slayton had a potential game-winning and fantasy week making touchdown go off of his outstretched hand. He still looks like a more viable deep threat in this offense than Kenny Golladay, and should be a what the heck flex against the Falcons next week.

  Giants | Nine receptions for Sterling Shepard    Fri Sep 17, 12:41 AM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught nine passes (on 10 targets) for 94 yards against the Washington Football Team on Thursday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Shepard is settled in as Daniel Jones favorite target and definitely a steady WR3/Flex in PPR leagues.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley runs for 57 yards on TNF    Fri Sep 17, 12:26 AM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) had 13 carries for 57 yards in Week 2 against the Washington Football Team. Barkley also caught two passes for 12 yards.

Footballguys view: Barkley got loose once, but otherwise was held in check and still not used to the extent he was pre-injury. He's an automatic start against the Falcons next week and with a short week of rest, he should get as much work as he can handle.

  Giants | Daniel Jones plays well in loss    Fri Sep 17, 12:10 AM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 22 of 32 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown against the Washington Football Team on Thursday, Sept. 16. Jones also ran nine times for 95 yards and another score.

Footballguys view: Jones was a fantasy force on the back of his swift running, which included a long touchdown that was called back by penalty. There was also a dropped touchdown by Darius Slayton that might have won the game. Jones had his usual pocket presence issues, but he's a streamer for Week 3 against the non-existent Falcons defense.

  Giants | Nick Gates carted off    Thu Sep 16, 08:48 PM

New York Giants OG Nick Gates (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a leg injury during the Week 2 game.

Footballguys view: The Giants offensive line wasn't exactly a point of strength on the team to begin with. Gates was a starting guard, so the Giants line will take a hit, but at least they face the Falcons defense in a quasi-bye next week.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley questionable    Wed Sep 15, 01:20 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is questionable for Week 2 Thursday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: The Giants eased Barkley into action against the Broncos in Week 1. He came through the game unscathed, so the idea is that he can do more in Week 2 - even on a short week against an aggressive Washington defense. Barkley is worth considering as a flex play in Week 2.

  Giants | Evan Engram out    Wed Sep 15, 01:07 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) has been ruled out for Week 2 Thursday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Engram missed Week 1 against the Broncos and with a short week it's not shocking he would miss Thursday night against Washington. The Giants turn to Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith to do more. Fantasy GMs have much better options at tight end this week.

  Giants | Jabrill Peppers unhappy with role    Wed Sep 15, 12:52 PM

New York Giants S Jabrill Peppers is seemingly unhappy after a reduced role in Week 1. He played 97 percent of snaps in 23 games he was fully healthy during his career but played just 30 of 66 snaps in a three-safety rotation in Week 1.

  Giants | Small role for Kadarius Toney    Tue Sep 14, 11:32 PM

New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney lost two yards on two receptions and played five snaps against the Denver Broncos in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Toney is a gadget player on a bad team. That's not a great combination for fantasy success. We appreciate Toney in dynasty formats but Fantasy GMs in redraft leagues are not looking to him for help...or even depth.

New York Giants LB Cam Brown (hamstring), TE Evan Engram (calf) and OG Shane Lemieux (knee) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Sept. 14. RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited.

Footballguys view: Engram is unlikely to play again for the Giants, and it may be a couple of more weeks before he's back in action. The Giants turn to Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith with Engram out just like they had to last week against the Broncos.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) has been medically cleared and will play against the Denver Broncos in Week 1, according to a source.

  Giants | Hope for Daniel Jones?    Fri Sep 10, 10:42 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has thrown 23 touchdowns and nine interceptions in the 11 games he has played with RB Saquon Barkley.

Footballguys view: Barkley is the key for the Giants against the Broncos in Week 1...and for the 2021 season. If he's healthy, the Giants will be dangerous as a rushing attack. That will open things up for QB Daniel Jones with play-action passing. With new additions in the passing game like WR Kenny Golladay that would benefit Jones greatly. The Giants offensive line isn't going to do Jones any favors...especially in Week 1 against a strong pass rush like the Broncos have.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley remains limited    Thu Sep 9, 03:53 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 9.

Footballguys view: Barkley is set to play against the Broncos in Week 1. The team has limited him but he may be a full participant on Friday. Barkley may not be 100 percent, and the team may choose to ease him back into action. This means more usage of Devontae Booker (against his old team the Broncos) is possible on Sunday.

  Giants | Still no practice for Evan Engram    Thu Sep 9, 01:33 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) remained out of practice Thursday, Sept. 9.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if Engram plays against the Broncos in Week 1. That means the Giants will turn to Kyle Rudolph as their starting tight end. Kaden Smith should get some work as well. The Broncos struggle against tight ends, so Rudolph may get some fantasy points - maybe even a touchdown - this Sunday...but Fantasy GMs need to look at him as a streaming option or TE2.
