New York Giants WR Golden Tate is likely stick around heading into the 2020 season, as cutting him would result in $7.1 million of dead money. Beat writer Jordan Raanan says the team was happy with his production after he returned from a four-game suspension, and cutting him seems unlikely since his versatility fits what new head coach Joe Judge is hoping to accomplish in his first season at the helm.
Huddle Up: Tate, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton give the team a position of strength heading into 2020, and if he does indeed stick around, Tate could be worth a look in the later rounds in most fantasy leagues, particularly PPR formats.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones hosted some of his receivers for workouts at Duke Tuesday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: It's unknown which receivers were in attendance early in the offseason but it's a promising sign for Jones as he heads into his sophomore season. He completed 61.9 percent of 459 pass attempts for 3,027 yards and 24 touchdowns with 12 interceptions as a rookie. He'll be looking to grow more familiar with his top targets after TE Evan Engram, and WRs Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard each played no more than 11 games in 2019.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was named the 2019 Associtated Press Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Thomas led the league in both receptions (149) and yards (1,725) while scoring nine touchdowns for the second year in a row. It's unknown whether it'll be Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater or even Tayson Hill under center for the Saints next season, but Thomas will be the No. 1 option either way, and he'll be a top-three fantasy option at the position.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones says he's ready for the challenge of learning a new offense under recently hired offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. 'It'll be a challenge but it's part of the job,'' Jones said Saturday, Feb. 1 during Super Bowl week festivities in Miami. 'I learned a system this year, so we're doing it again. It will be a challenge and something I'll need to spend a lot of time making sure I'm working towards and making progress with. I think we'll all be able to do it, I think we'll all attack it the right way and try to pick it up as quick as we can.'
Huddle Up: Jones had a decent first fantasy season, finishing 11th among QBs (minimum eight starts) in fantasy points per game. We'll see how quickly he adjusts to the new offense, but all signs point toward a preseason ranking as a solid QB2 this summer.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 3, and has been removed from the Wild Card injury report.
Huddle Up: Thomas will continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas joined New England Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore as the two unanimous selections on the Associated Press All-Pro team Friday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Thomas finished with 100.5 more PPR points than any other wideout in setting the NFL single-season catch record with 149 and finishing with a league-most 1,725 yards. He's a near-lock to be the first non-RB off the board in PPR drafts for 2020.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hand) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: Thomas may be limited during practice this week but should be ready to play in the Wild Card playoff game. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) recently underwent surgery to repair a Lisfranc ligament - an injury that 'wasn't a full-blown tear, but it needed some fixing.' He is expected to make a full recovery and resume training this spring.
Huddle Up: Engram is obviously a TE1 in fantasy when he is available, but his durability is a huge question mark after three seasons as a pro. After playing 15 games as a rookie, he's played in only 19 of 32 possible games in the last two years, including just eight in 2019. Regardless of who the Giants hire to coach and/or call plays next season, Engram should remain a key part of the offense.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will 'most likely' retire after this season, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.
Huddle Up: With the Giants committed to Daniel Jones at quarterback, Manning would almost certainly be on a different team in 2020 if he does decide to keep playing. However, he'd be a QB2, at best, even in the most ideal setting.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Thomas has caught at least 10 passes in nine games this season and has found the end zone in five of the last six games. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Slayton was held off the stat sheet last week but has had a good role in the passing game during the second half of the season. He can be considered a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hand) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Thomas should have a decent chance to play in the Week 17 game, but fantasy players should monitor the situation. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Slayton likely will be able to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has been held to under 50 yards in three of the last four games but also has three touchdowns during that span. He can be a possible flex option in fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hand) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 25. The Saints did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Thomas has been one of the top receivers in the NFL this season and should be on the field again this week despite the injury. He is a must-start option in all leagues as long as he is active.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (knee) was limited in the team's practice estimation Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Slayton has eight touchdowns in his breakout rookie season, and he'd be a high-end WR3 against the Philadelphia Eagles if he's able to go.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted no receptions or yards on two targets in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Slayton had a giant game a couple of weeks ago, but this is why you don't rely upon guys who aren't consistent fantasy producers. He'll look to redeem himself in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he should be avoided across the board.

New York Giants WR Cody Latimer registered five receptions for 44 yards and a score in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Latimer was one of four receivers to catch a touchdown for the G-Men. We've seen this movie before, however, as Latimer has had chances to shine, looked like someone who could be relied upon in fantasy, and then he flames out. Despite the score, don't trust him in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

New York Giants TE Kaden Smith finished with six grabs for 35 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including the game winner in overtime, in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Smith was getting a chance to step up with Evan Engram gone for the rest of the season. He is worth a look in DFS play in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard ended up with six receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Shepard went for nine grabs and 111 yards last week with Eli Manning under center, and he didn't skip a bet with the quarterback change. He has shown that he can be a decent PPR fantasy option when healthy, and he'll be a decent late-round option in PPR leagues heading into 2020.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate registered six grabs for 96 yards on 11 targets in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: The Giants had five touchdown receptions, and Tate wasn't one of them, but he did have his highest yardage total since going for 102 yards back in Week 2 at New England. He has finished up as a legit WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Giants wrap up the regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rumbled 22 times for 189 yards and a touchdown while adding four grabs for 90 yards and a score on four targets in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: This is the type of production fantasy owners envisioned from Barkley when they nabbed him in the first round, sometimes No. 1 overall, in drafts. Unfortunately many fantasy weren't around to enjoy it. The Giants finish up the regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 28-of-42 passes for 352 yards, a career-high five touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins and he ran for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Jones was back after a two-week absence and he had his best showing of his rookie season in terms of yardage and passing touchdowns. The future is bright in New Jersey. He'll look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas registered 12 receptions for 136 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Thomas has not only been the top fantasy receiver in 2019, but he has just been super consistent for most of the season, too. Those who rode him into the championship weekend were greeted with yet another top-tier showing. He and the Saints wrap up the season in Week 17 at Carolina.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) has been a full participant in practice all week and will start in Week 16 on Sunday, Dec. 22, unless there's a sudden setback, head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: The rookie Jones has missed the last two starts as veteran Eli Manning returned to the helm, but it looks like he'll be back as a low-end QB2 option against Washington on Sunday. Just continue to monitor his progress over the weekend.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday. Dec. 19. Head coach Pat Shurmur said Jones 'feels good.' He's trending toward starting Sunday, Dec. 22, against the Washington Redskins, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.
Huddle Up: Jones will be a high-end QB2, but he's too risky to be trusted in standard leagues.

New York Giants TE Scott Simonson is likely to see a larger role in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins with TE Evan Engram (foot) out.
Huddle Up: Simonson knows the system well, but he is unlikely to make much of a splash from a fantasy perspective. He'll be jockeying with Kaden Smith in the final two games for targets, and Smith is the better bet for more production. No fantasy value here.

New York Giants TE Kaden Smith is likely to have a larger role in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins with TE Evan Engram (foot) done for the season.
Huddle Up: Smith has managed 17 receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown this season, and he could finish up strong in the final two games. However, he is still not a recommended fantasy option even if he is called upon to start.
