New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) said Tuesday, Oct. 22, he's confident he'll return to the field soon. 'Oh, I'll be back out on the field,' Shepard said. 'It's just whether it's gonna be this week or next week.'
Huddle Up: Shepard has been limited to four games this season, but he has been able to rack up 25 receptions on 34 targets for 267 yards and a touchdown. The more experience QB Daniel Jones acquires while Shepard is out of the lineup will only boost the receiver's production upon his eventual return. He's a solid buy-low candidate.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones is in no danger of losing his starting job despite some recent struggles, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Jones has thrown seven interceptions over the last four games but also has four touchdowns during that span. He will be facing a solid Detroit Lions defense in Week 8 and probably should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught nine of his 11 targets for 131 yards in a 36-25 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Even without Drew Brees under center, Thomas continues to put up WR1 numbers. He has had at least eight catches and at least 89 yards in four straight games.

New York Giants WR Bennie Fowler posted four receptions for 35 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Fowler saw a decent day by his standards despite wet and rainy conditions. However, he remains nothing more than a low-end fantasy option in deeper leagues heading into Week 8 in Detroit.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was active in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals, but he was limited to one grab for six yards on five targets with wet and sloppy conditions.
Huddle Up: Engram's role was more as a backup, much to the dismay of his fantasy owners who saw a juicy matchup against the very giving Cardinals. However, his role was limited due to the slippery conditions, and Rhett Ellison ended up with the team's only TD in the pass game. It will be dry in Detroit in Week 8 under the roof, so expect Engram to be much better then.

New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison ended up with two grabs for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Ellison saw plenty of action despite the return of Evan Engram, as the Giants played it safe with their starter returning from injury with wet and rainy conditions. Despite the touchdown, Ellison is only worth a roster spot the deepest of fantasy leagues in Week 8 at Detroit.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate ended up with six receptions for 80 yards on 11 targets in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: It was a wet and sloppy day in New Jersey, but Tate saw plenty of action on the short to intermediate safe routes to make his fantasy owners in deeper PPR leagues happy. Weather won't be an issue under the roof in Detroit in Week 8.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 22-of-35 passes for 223 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: There were rainy and slick conditions, but it didn't stop the Giants from changing their game plan. They lost, but at least fantasy owners weren't completely blanked by the weather. The Giants are under the roof in Detroit in Week 8, so weather won't be an issue.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Gallman should serve as the backup running back for the Giants this week and will only see limited playing time with Saquon Barkley back. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Engram will be one of the top options in the passing game for the Giants this week and is a solid No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Barkley should receive plenty of touches in the offense this week and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues even though he is returning to the lineup sooner than expected.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) won't be cleared for Week 7, and he might not return for Week 8 after his second concussion in four weeks.
Huddle Up: Golden Tate should be a featured target against the Arizona Cardinals. He's a high-end WR3 this week. TE Evan Engram (knee) looks ready to return, and he could be one of the best tight ends in fantasy to play this week.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Shepard needs to be medically cleared to play in Week 7, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation. He is one of the main targets in the passing game when healthy and can be a starting fantasy option if he plays.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Gallman appears to be on track to play but likely will only receive a handful of touches with Saquon Barkley expected to play. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: It seems like Gallman will return to the backup job once he is cleared to play since Saquon Barkley is practicing. Fantasy players in all leagues can avoid Gallman moving forward.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Shepard needs to be medically cleared before he is able to play, so fantasy players should know more about his status later in the week. He will see a solid amount of targets if he plays and could be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Barkley looks like he could be ready to return against the Arizona Cardinals. Barkley is a must-start if he plays, but temper expectations a bit because he has made an other-worldly recovery from a high ankle sprain.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton tied with WR Golden Tate with 49 offensive snaps played in the Week 6 loss to the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: The dramatic increase in playing time came with WR Sterling Shepard sidelined by a concussion. Slayton caught just three of eight targets for 32 yards in his first start of the season, but he could be worth a look in deeper leagues in a much better matchup against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7 if Shepard is forced to miss another game.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) took part in individual drills during the light practice Monday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Gallman's status might not matter if Saquon Barkley (ankle) returns. Gallman could be a flex option if Barkley is unable to go against the Arizona Cardinals.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) took part in individual drills during the light practice Monday, Oct. 14. He could have a chance to return this week.
Huddle Up: If Engram returns against the Arizona Cardinals, he's a must-start in Week 7. Rhett Ellison had three catches for 30 yards in Engram's absence and isn't an option in fantasy.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) took part in individual drills during the light practice Monday, Oct. 14. He is still a long shot to play in Week 7.
Huddle Up: A lot could happen for the Giants on offense this week if Saquon Barkley (ankle) and TE Evan Engram (knee) make it back. Golden Tate had a 6-102-1 line in Week 6 and will be a WR3 play against the Arizona Cardinals.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught eight passes for 89 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted 12 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Thomas has posted at least 89 yards in five of the six games this season and is one of the most consistent fantasy receivers in the NFL. He is a must-start option no matter the opponent.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas needs to be targeted as much as possible, according to QB Teddy Bridgewater. 'Man, I have one of the best wide receivers in the NFL out here and I get to throw the ball to him whenever I feel like it,' Bridgewater said.
Huddle Up: Thomas is coming off his best game since Bridgewater took over for Drew Brees, and with 20 catches on 22 targets over the last two games, it is safe to say that Thomas can still be trusted as a WR1 with Bridgewater running the show.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones refused to offer any excuses after completing 15-of-31 passes for 161 yards and three interceptions in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday, Oct. 10. 'The biggest thing for me is to prevent making a mistake twice,' Jones said. 'I don't think the fact that I'm young or the fact I haven't played as much isn't an excuse. I'm not going to use that to help myself feel better. They're still really bad mistakes, and things I can't afford to do. I need to be able to learn from those and prevent them from happening again.'
Huddle Up: Jones' passing yardage totals have decreased in each of his last three starts and he has thrown six interceptions to three TDs over that span. But he's likely faced the best defenses he's going to see the rest of the season with the back-to-back matchups against the Vikings and Patriots and is a low-end QB2 going forward.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) could return in Week 7, head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 11. 'We'll see,' Shurmur said. 'He's made good progress. He was out there running around (Friday). We'll see what the week brings.'
Huddle Up: Whether Barkley returns in Week 7 or 8, he'll still be far ahead of the initial timetable after going down in Week 3.

New York Giants RB Jon Hilliman rushed 11 times for 38 yards and lost three yards and lost a fumble on two receptions in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 6.
Huddle Up: With Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman sidelined, Hilliman had the chance to lead the backfield. He struggled to find any room against a tough New England defense, but if he remains the starter in Week 7, he could be worth a flier as a flex play with a much more favorable matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on tap.
