  Giants | Forgettable night for Darren Waller     Fri Sep 22, 12:50 AM

New York Giants TE Darren Waller caught three passes for 20 yards in a Week 3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted a team-high seven times.

Footballguys view: Watching Waller was frustrating for his fantasy teams on Thursday. He and Daniel Jones couldn't get in sync and the 49ers defense was making that job a lot harder. Next week vs. Seattle should be a better result. At least Waller has been able to avoid missing time because of the hamstring issue that popped up earlier this season.

  Giants | Matt Breida finds the end zone    Fri Sep 22, 12:30 AM

New York Giants RB Matt Breida had four carries for 17 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3. He added three receptions for one yard.

Footballguys view: The touchdown saved anyone who started Breida on a night that little to nothing worked for the Giants offense. Saquon Barkley hopes to play next week against Seattle, but if he can't, Breida will be a what the heck flex. He's not an essential hold or pickup going into Week 4.

  Giants | Daniel Jones struggles on TNF    Fri Sep 22, 12:16 AM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 22 of 32 passes for 137 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Sept. 21. He also ran twice for five yards.

Footballguys view: This was one a real stinker for fantasy coming off of a week-winning second half vs. Arizona, but we shouldn't change our view of Jones as a fantasy commodity as much as we should consider the 49ers defense an avoid (Arizona faces them next week) and respect what the Rams were able to do against them last week. Jones will be a boom/bust QB1 against the Seahawks next week.

  Giants | Wan'Dale Robinson to play    Thu Sep 21, 09:47 AM

New York Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) is expected to play in Thursday, Sept. 21, in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Robinson can make big plays, and we love him in dynasty formats. He's been coming back from this knee injury during the summer, and now we'll see what he looks like in a regular season game. Don't start him - and perhaps don't even add him just yet, but make sure to keep him on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley ruled out    Wed Sep 20, 03:10 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) did not practice once again on Wednesday, Sept. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

Footballguys view: We at least have clarity on the Barkley situation. It's a short week since the Giants play on Thursday night against the 49ers, so Barkley not playing is no surprise. Now, the Giants turn to Matt Breida. Gary Brightwell, and rookie Eric Gray. At this time, Breida should be considered a deep flex play for Fantasy GMs in PPR formats.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley still has a chance to play Thursday?    Tue Sep 19, 01:34 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) has made considerable progress with his injured ankle over the last two days and appears to have at least a small chance to play on a short week in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Brian Daboll.

Footballguys view: Daboll is likely just keeping things close to the vest here. Barkley could play, but just 24 hours ago (or so) the reports were that the veteran back would miss a week or two. The ankle injury is not considered a high-ankle problem, so Barkley could be back sooner than you think. Yes, that means Thursday night is a possibility but we'll all just have to wait and see.

  Giants | X-rays negative for Saquon Barkley    Mon Sep 18, 10:29 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is scheduled for an MRI Monday, Sept. 18 for the ankle injury he suffered late in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. According to sources, he had X-rays which came back negative. The team believes Barkley did not suffer a serious injury.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate this could be a regular ankle sprain, not a high ankle sprain that Barkley is dealing with. That type of injury can be taped up and played on. We're likely to see Barkley limited this week in practice, but the Giants are playing on Thursday night against the 49ers in Week 3. That means if Barkley is shut down, the Giants would have to turn to guys like Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell, and Eric Gray.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley injured late in Week 2    Sun Sep 17, 07:10 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was helped from the field late in the fourth quarter of the Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals, and it appeared he suffered an ankle injury after having his leg rolled up on while being tackled on a rushing attempt. He had the ankle taped up on the bench, but he was walking with a noticeable limp.

Footballguys view: The Giants play on Thursday night against the 49ers, so it seems very unlikely that we'll have Barkley in lineups in Week 3. Matt Breida is the backup, but the Giants also have rookie Eric Gray and and utility back Gary Brightwell. Breida is worth a pickup in deep leagues, but not a great start against San Francisco.
