New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 22.
Huddle Up: Barkley can be activated at any point, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He will be a top-five pick in all fantasy leagues if he ready for Week 1 and should be a weekly starting option.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) said he is not sure if he will be ready for the start of the regular season. 'I don't know. We'll see,' Barkley said. 'Taking it day by day. Just listening to my body. Whenever I'm able to get out there, just make sure I'm 110 percent.'
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation during training camp to see when Barkley will be able to play again. He likely will be a top five pick in all leagues if he is healthy for Week 1.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones had shown solid growth with his play and leadership over the last year, according to head coach Joe Judge.
Huddle Up: Jones struggled at times last season but will have Saquon Barkley back from injury and will have Kenny Golladay to throw to as well. He could be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and likely will not be a starting option most weeks.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was pressured on 30.3 percent of his drop-backs in 2020 - the highest percentage for any quarterback with at least 350 pass attempts - per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: Any quarterback facing pressure on almost a third of his drop-backs is far from ideal. Some of the blame falls on the offensive line and game script, but Pro Football Focus notes that Jones had an average of 2.71 seconds to throw - more than what most quarterbacks get. Thus, some of the blame falls on Jones for failing to unload the ball more quickly. It also speaks to how important Saquon Barkley is to the offense. It shouldn't come as a surprise if Jones bounces back and emerges as a quality fantasy QB2 this season.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) said he is taking his recovery on a day-by-day basis and does not have a timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Barkley probably will be limited during training camp but should be ready for the start of the regular season. He is one of the top running backs when healthy and should be a No. 1 fantasy back in all leagues.
Posted 7/04/2021 2:55 am GMT
New York Giants TE Evan Engram's 5.9 yards per target in 2020 was fourth worst in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Engram has been a popular target for quarterback Daniel Jones, but the volume hasn't led to many big plays. He already had issues with staying healthy and drops, and the additions of receiver Kenny Golladay and tight end Kyle Rudolph will likely cut into his workload. Engram still has a chance to finish as a low-end TE1, but he doesn't offer much upside.
Posted 7/04/2021 2:25 am GMT
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has averaged 8.1 targets per game from QB Daniel Jones over the past two seasons.
Huddle Up: The Giants added Kenny Golladay to the receiving corps this offseason, but Shepard should continue to serve as a safety valve out of the slot for Jones. He can be a serviceable WR4 when healthy.
Posted 7/03/2021 9:05 pm GMT
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has worked out with RB Saquon Barkley, WR Kenny Golladay, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Darius Slayton and WR David Sills leading up to training camp.
Huddle Up: Jones struggled last season but will have Barkley healthy this season and a new No. 1 receiver in Golladay. He still struggles with turnovers but could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in leagues.

New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney had issues with a cleat at rookie minicamp, skipped OTAs because his contract wasn't signed and had to leave minicamp due to a family emergency.
Huddle Up: While it isn't ideal for a rookie to be missing multiple practice sessions, the good news is that Toney has received positive reviews when he has been on the field. His speed and versatility should allow to make some plays, but it remains to be seen if he will have a consistent role in the offense in his first year. For now, he's a better dynasty asset than redraft option.
Posted 6/12/2021 1:41 am GMT
New York Giants TE Evan Engram has been 'catching everything thrown in his direction' and has been the 'best offensive player on the field' during OTAs, according to Jordan Raanan of
Huddle Up: Engram has been a matchup problem for defenses since entering the league, but injuries and drops have plagued him. If he starts catching the ball consistently, he should easily finish as a TE1.
Posted 6/11/2021 5:40 pm GMT
New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney worked exclusively with the second-team offense during the mandatory minicamp this week, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan.
Huddle Up: Toney likely will have a solid role in the passing game as a rookie and should receive some work with Daniel Jones during training camp. Fantasy players can monitor his progress during camp, but he can be a late round option in deeper leagues.
Posted 6/09/2021 5:40 pm GMT
New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney (undisclosed) had a 'nice practice' Wednesday, June 9, and continued to show the 'talent that made him a first-rounder,' according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Toney left practice early after slipping on the field multiple times Tuesday, June 8.
Huddle Up: The Giants have a logjam at receiver this year, but Toney's special blend of quickness and run-after-catch ability will find its way on the field. Expect New York to get him involved on jet sweeps and wide receiver screens in addition to the typical work of a slot receiver. While he may not begin the season as anything more than a fantasy WR5, he could easily become a very serviceable option during bye weeks at the very least.
Posted 6/08/2021 4:48 pm GMT
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is at the facility and rehabbing Tuesday, June 8, during organized team activities, but he won't be participating.
Huddle Up: Barkley was in line to be a colossal bust even before he was lost for the season with a knee injury last year. It's possible he was overrated in fantasy because of the flashes and athletic ability. He should fall back closer to a midrange RB1.
Posted 6/05/2021 4:24 pm GMT
New York Giants WR Kenny Golladay has earned Pro Football Focus' highest grade (97.5) on contested catches since 2018.
Huddle Up: Golladay may be overlooked some after playing in only five games last season and then switching teams, but his talent is worthy of a low-end WR2 selection in drafts this summer.
Posted 6/03/2021 3:50 pm GMT
New York Giants first-round pick WR Kadarius Toney signed his rookie, four-year, $13,719,508 fully guaranteed deal Thursday, June 3. All first-round picks have options for a fifth year.
Huddle Up: Toney is going to move around the field a lot, and he could make an impact at some point in fantasy as a rookie. Keep an eye on him in camp and have him up your sleeve as a WR5 flyer.
Posted 5/29/2021 3:56 pm GMT
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) has been working out recently at the team's facility in New Jersey and is able to do sprinting and jumping. However, he is not expected to be a full participant during the team's first few practices of training camp as a precautionary measure.
Huddle Up: Even though he has missed significant portions of the last two seasons, the 24-year-old Barkley is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season and should be targeted as an RB1 in all fantasy formats. The Giants' offense showed considerable improvement near the end of the 2020 campaign and the offseason addition of WR Kenny Golladay should take much of the pressure off Barkley in his return to the field.
Posted 5/21/2021 1:25 am GMT
New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney was used on jet sweeps, in the screen game and in the Wildcat formation during rookie minicamp, and head coach Joe Judge said Toney will be used in a multiple roles. 'We will make sure we create enough versatility in his game to play him in different spots,' Judge said.
Huddle Up: If the Giants are legitimately committed to putting the ball in Toney's hands in a variety of ways, the rookie could deliver his share of big plays. He is no more than a late-round lottery ticket in redraft leagues, but Toney is worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Posted 4/30/2021 4:13 am GMT
New York Giants WR Kadarius Toney compared himself to New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara in terms of versatility and explosiveness.
Huddle Up: Toney has the speed to generate big plays, but if he is going to maximize his fantasy value, it will be up to the Giants to find creative ways to put the balls in his hands. He will likely be a boom-or-bust fantasy option throughout his rookie year.
Posted 4/28/2021 9:50 pm GMT
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley had his fifth-year option picked up Wednesday, April 28, according to a source. He'll cost the team a fully-guaranteed $7.217 million against the salary cap in 2022.
Huddle Up: Barkley was injured in just his second game of the 2020 season. The Giants showed considerable improvement across the board late in the year and the offseason addition of WR Kenny Golladay should help stretch the offense. The former second overall pick should be targeted as an RB1 in his return to the field in 2021.
Posted 4/28/2021 5:14 pm GMT
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) remains on track to be ready for the start of the 2021 season, according to sources, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: The fantasy community seems to be slightly down on Barkley as injuries have ruined significant parts of his last two seasons. Such is the life for most running backs. When healthy, Barkley is as good as it gets at the position. The Giants are on the verge of putting together a decent offensive line for him to run behind and did well to land Kenny Golladay as a free agent to take some of the attention off Barkley. He is still very much worth a top-five pick in drafts and possesses overall RB1 upside.
Posted 4/20/2021 5:10 pm GMT
New York Giants RB Devontae Booker was 'worth the price' the team paid in free agency because he is 'a three-down back' that 'only makes the Giants stronger,' according to general manager Dave Gettleman. New York inked Booker to a two-year contract worth $5.5 million earlier this spring.
Huddle Up: Booker may have a three-down skill set in theory because he is a capable receiver, but he's a replacement-level runner on his third team in three years and hasn't logged more than last year's 93 carries in a season since his rookie year in 2016. Moreover, Saquon Barkley, if he can stay healthy in 2021, will keep Booker on the sidelines for all but a few snaps per game. Booker's only value to fantasy owners is that of a low-end handcuff.
Posted 4/09/2021 2:24 am GMT
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has 39 turnovers, 22 interceptions and 17 lost fumbles, in 27 career games.
Huddle Up: The Giants added some offensive weapons this offseason, but Jones will have to improve his accuracy and cut down on his turnovers in order to take advantage of the upgrades. He remains a risky QB2.
Posted 4/05/2021 3:30 pm GMT
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones will spend this week working out in Arizona with some of the team's offensive weapons and linemen.
Huddle Up: Last year was a lost year on the field with an abundance of injuries around Jones. His fantasy stock will depend on the health around him, particularly with Saquon Barkley. Jones will be a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 option.
Posted 3/25/2021 2:14 am GMT
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was off target on 16.8 percent of his throws in 2020, the ninth-worst mark among qualified players.
Huddle Up: The Giants have provided Jones with some additional firepower this offseason, but if he can't improve his accuracy and cut down on his turnovers, his production won't change much. He is still no more than a risky QB2 heading into 2021.
Posted 3/20/2021 7:42 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the New York Giants Saturday, March 20, worth as much as $76 million. The deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Golladay should be the No. 1 receiver for the Giants over the next few seasons and will see plenty of targets from Daniel Jones. He can be at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/18/2021 7:36 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) met with Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy Wednesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Bears do not have much behind Allen Robinson, so Golladay would be a terrific No. 2 receiver for the team. Golladay should be a big part of the passing game no matter where he signs and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if healthy.
Posted 3/18/2021 7:13 pm GMT
Free-agent TE Kyle Rudolph (Vikings) agreed to terms with the New York Giants Thursday, March 18. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Rudolph likely will be sharing playing time with Evan Engram and will look to be more involved in the passing game this season. He should see a handful of targets each game but can be avoided in most leagues.
