New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught two passes for 39 yards and a touchdown in a 28-13 preseason win over the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: Not that it should come as a surprise, but Thomas and Drew Brees were on the same page and connected on the early score. Thomas owns the record for most receptions through his first three seasons, and another year of WR1 production should be on tap.
Posted 8/23/2019 6:08 am UTC
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones is 25-for-30 for 369 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in three preseason games.
Huddle Up: The only knock is that he has lost two fumbles. It's probably not enough to jettison Eli Manning out as the starter, but the clock is ticking. Jones is only worth owning in dynasty formats, but he could be an early season waiver claim.
Posted 8/18/2019 5:08 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 18, after being diagnosed with a concussion.
Huddle Up: Tate is facing a suspension to start the year, but the shifty slot receiver will have WR3 upside in PPR formats when he returns. If the looming suspension causes him to slip in drafts, consider scooping him up.
Posted 8/18/2019 1:08 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) said Sunday, Aug. 18, his thumb has healed pretty fast and he is 'feeling good.'
Huddle Up: Shepard's injury was a near disaster for the Giants' offense with WR Golden Tate suspended to begin the season. Shepard is in line for a huge target share and has top-end WR3 upside with the Giants' poor passing attack holding him back.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 11 of his 14 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown and lost a pair of fumbles in a 32-13 preseason win over the Chicago Bears Friday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Jones will obviously have to clean up the ball security issues, but he was once again sharp throwing the ball. Eli Manning's presence limits his value to keeper formats for the time being, but Jones is showing some potential.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley will not play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Barkley will receive a significant amount of touches this season, so the team wants to keep him healthy. Barkley should be the first or second pick in all fantasy drafts this season.
Posted 8/08/2019 10:08 pm UTC
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Barkley may not receive a lot of playing time during the preseason because he will be the focal point on offense for the Giants this season. He should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts this season.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning worked with a private pitching coach this offseason at the suggestion of former MLB All-Star Al Leiter. 'I feel like it's paid off,' Manning said. 'I'm throwing the ball well, and arm is staying strong and I'm not losing anything. In training camp, sometimes you'd have four practices in a row, and you're not used to that; you can see your arm getting tired. But still feeling strong.'
Huddle Up: It's certainly not enough to bring Manning into the fantasy conversation entering the year, but he could become worthy of consideration as a late-season bye-week replacement if he plays above expectations deep into the campaign.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) participated in live drills Tuesday, July 30, while wearing a yellow jersey and only being allowed to use one hand due to his broken thumb.
Huddle Up: That the Giants are being this reckless with their likely No. 1 receiver for at least the first four weeks of the season (while WR Golden Tate is expected to serve a suspension) is scary for his fantasy prospects. He's still not slated to miss regular-season games and this may be a promising sign, but he'll need to be monitored closely over the next month.
Posted 7/27/2019 9:07 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) said he believes he will be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Shepard probably will not play in any preseason games because of his thumb injury but may be ready for Week 1. He is expected to be the top receiver for the Giants this season and has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Posted 7/27/2019 3:07 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Golden Tate is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the National Football League's performance-enhancing substance policy because he believes he has a legitimate case, according to multiple league sources.
Huddle Up: It is uncertain how long it will take for this matter to be resolved but Tate will be able to continue participating in team activities while it is being appealed. He is expected to be the Giants' No. 2 receiver behind Sterling Shepard and could see even more targets than previously anticipated due to the torn ACL sustained by fellow wideout Corey Coleman earlier this week. Tate is capable of producing like a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3, although there is some level of risk in drafting him now based on the current situation.
Posted 7/26/2019 4:07 pm UTC
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) won't require surgery on his fractured thumb, and Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, July 26, that he expects Shepard to be able to play in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Something we'll definitely have our eye on this preseason as Shepard is projected to lead the Giants in targets with the offseason trade of fellow WR Odell Beckham Jr. As long as it looks like he'll be ready for the opener, value him as a WR3.
Posted 7/26/2019 4:07 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Corey Coleman (knee) suffered a torn ACL in practice Thursday, July 25, the team announced Friday, July 26. He will likely be lost for the entire 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Coleman was thought to be the front-runner for the Giants' No. 3 WR job this year and had served as the Giants' primary kickoff returner late last season. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Sterling Shepard is out with a fractured thumb, meaning veteran WRs Golden Tate, Cody Latimer and Russell Shepard and rookie Darius Slayton will be in line for more work.
Posted 7/26/2019 1:07 am UTC
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) has been cleared to participate in the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Engram has dealt with some injuries, but he has been a big part of the passing game when on the field. He has a great chance to finish as a top-five fantasy tight end in 2019.
Posted 7/25/2019 10:07 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) suffered a fractured thumb during practice Thursday, July 25, and will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.
Huddle Up: Shepard probably will miss a majority of training camp because of the injury and could be a question mark for Week 1, so fantasy players need to monitor the situation. He will be a big part of the passing game for the Giants this season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver if healthy.
Posted 7/16/2019 5:07 pm UTC
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley led all running backs with 12 runs of at least 25 yards in 2018.
Huddle Up: In the actual draft, the Giants were ripped for not taking a QB, but those who went with Barkley in their fantasy drafts weren't left disappointed. Now, entering Year 2, he's a legit candidate to go with the No. 1-overall pick in drafts.
Posted 7/06/2019 12:07 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Golden Tate could be used as a kick and punt returner this season.
Huddle Up: Tate, along with fellow wideouts Corey Coleman and Darius Slayton, as well as SS Jabrill Peppers, are under consideration for return duties in 2019. Regardless of who wins this competition, Tate will have a modest amount of fantasy value as the club's likely No. 2 receiver behind Sterling Shepard. He is worthy of consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option.
Posted 6/29/2019 2:06 am UTC
New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman appears to have fallen behind RB Paul Perkins in the battle for the No. 2 running back job, and Gallman isn't a lock to be the No. 3 back at this point, according to Matt Lombardo of
Huddle Up: It sounds like Saquon Barkley owners should try to target Perkins when trying to secure a handcuff.
Posted 6/29/2019 1:06 am UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard was 'far and away the most dominant wide receiver' during spring practices and minicamp, according to Matt Lombardo of
Huddle Up: With Odell Backham Jr. out of the picture, Shepard should emerge as the go-to target in the passing attack. He's a solid bet to deliver WR3 production, and his ceiling is even higher with decent quarterback play.
Posted 6/28/2019 10:06 pm UTC
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he does not believes he is in a competition with QB Daniel Jones for the starting job. 'I mean no, I don't feel like it's a competition,' Manning said. 'I feel like I've got to do my job and I've got to compete every day and try to get better every day. That's the way it's been my whole life and that's just the way I've always approached practice every day to improve, to earn my place on the team, to earn the respect of the teammates and do it each year.' Manning said he has no problem helping Jones improve.
Huddle Up: Manning likely will be the starter Week 1 but could lose the job to Jones if the team is eliminated from playoff contention. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Giants quarterback situation this season.
Posted 6/16/2019 3:06 pm UTC
The New York Giants may decide to carry only two quarterbacks on their 2019 roster if the coaching staff is convinced that QB Daniel Jones would be able to capably fill in for QB Eli Manning when called upon. Previously, it had been believed that Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney would be fighting for the No. 3 quarterback spot on the roster but there's a possibility that neither player will make the team. If the Giants opt to keep three QBs, Tanney is believed to have a slight edge over Lauletta.
Huddle Up: Both Manning and Jones should be regarded as low-end QB3s for now, especially following the departure of Odell Beckham Jr., although Jones has added value in dynasty formats. Tanney and Lauletta possess no fantasy value.
Posted 6/13/2019 1:06 am UTC
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) could be used more as a deep threat this season following the departure of WR Odell Beckham Jr. (Browns). Last season head coach Pat Shurmur set Engram out in motion, and even used him a few times to rush the ball. He has been sidelined due to a hamstring pull during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: The third-year tight end should be over his hamstring issue by training camp and the preseason. Engram's best production came in his rookie season of 2017 when he was healthy and Beckham was injured. He could be in line for a giant bounce-back season if he is able to stay on the field, something he was unable to do in 2018.
Posted 6/11/2019 4:06 pm UTC
New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday, June 11, that rookie QB Daniel Jones is very much in contention to start Week 1 and is 'constantly' weighing scenarios. 'We're gonna play the very best player. I know we're dancing around the words here, but right now Eli (Manning) is getting ready to have a great year and Daniel is getting ready to play.' Shurmur said. 'We'll just see what happens.'
Huddle Up: As previously stated, neither looks to be a great fantasy option, in large part due to the uncertainty and the departure of No. 1 WR Odell Beckham Jr. Regard both as low-end QB3s for now.
Posted 6/11/2019 3:06 pm UTC
Updating previous reports, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is recovering from a hamstring injury, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Engram regressed last year after a promising rookie campaign. The murky quarterback situation doesn't figure to give him a lot of upside this year, but he's a solid midrange option at the position.
Posted 6/09/2019 2:06 pm UTC
New York Giants TE Evan Engram said the organization was being cautious by holding him out of the team's recent minicamp. He claimed that there are no injuries lingering from last season.
Huddle Up: Engram was limited to 11 games in 2018 due to hamstring and knee injuries but racked up at least 75 receiving yards in each of his final four contests. If healthy, he should be viewed as a midrange TE1, especially considering that he should see an increase in targets following the departure of WR Odell Beckham Jr.
Posted 6/09/2019 2:06 am UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard averaged 7.7 targets in four games without Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. last year compared to 6.1 targets in 12 games with Beckham, and Jordan Raanan of believes Shepard will the the No. 1 option in the passing attack ahead of WR Golden Tate in 2019.
Huddle Up: Given his familiarity with Eli Manning, it would make sense that Shepard would be the go-to option this season. There are questions about how much Manning has left in the tank, but Shepard should have a good shot at WR3 production.
Posted 6/05/2019 10:06 pm UTC
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (wrist) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 5, because of a wrist injury, but head coach Pat Shurmur said Shepard will be fine.
Huddle Up: Shepard likely will have a bigger role in the passing game with Odell Beckham Jr. no longer on the roster. He has been a solid fantasy option over the last few years and can be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.
Posted 6/04/2019 5:06 pm UTC
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (unspecified) did not practice Tuesday, June 4. Head coach Pat Shurmur said Engram was 'just a little sore.'
Huddle Up: Engram is now one of the veterans of the Giants' pass-catching corps, and with Odell Beckham Jr. now gone, he could see a bump in targets. He's a mid-level TE1.
Posted 6/03/2019 1:06 am UTC
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he is not worried about his workload. 'I don't think any number is too high for me,' Barkley said. 'Whether it's 350 touches, 400 touches or less touches.'
Huddle Up: Barkley tallied 352 total touches as a rookie, leading the NFL with 2,028 total yards from scrimmage and scoring 15 times. As the unquestioned centerpiece of the offense, he should probably be the No. 1 pick in all fantasy formats in 2019.
