New York Giants head coach Joe Judge was asked Thursday, Sept. 24, what his plan will be if one of his three running backs, Dion Lewis, Wayne Gallman or Devonta Freeman, gets 'hot' in a game. 'He may be the guy for that moment. He may be the guy for that game,' Judge said, adding that the plan will to be use each of them, each week, depending on the game plan.
Huddle Up: Lewis and Gallman -- likely in that order -- are the best fantasy flex bets for this week as they know the offense, but Freeman looks better for the long haul.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman's one-year deal includes a $1.07 million base salary, which was prorated to $944,118 worth a maximum of $2.874 million (prorated from $3 million). He'll receive $280,000 in per-game roster bonuses and $1.15 million in rushing yard and touchdown incentives. He'll earn $250,000 for making the Pro Bowl or First-Team All-Pro.
Huddle Up: Keep Freeman stashed for a couple of weeks as he learns the offense. He could carve out a big role for the ailing G-Men.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Darius Slayton is already a great WR3, and he and Evan Engram should see small boosts in potential targets.

Updating a previous story, free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) officially agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million with the New York Giants Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: It may take Freeman a couple weeks to get fully up to speed but he should eventually control the bulk of the touches out of the Giants' backfield. His dual-threat abilities should allow him to be a FLEX option most weeks.

Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the New York Giants on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Freeman is reportedly waiting to get his COVID-19 test results back, but it appears the deal will happen if everything checks out OK. If the deal comes together as expected, the former Atlanta Falcon can't be expected to do much in Week 3 but should be expected to lead this backfield at some point early in October. Unfortunately, he graded out as one of the worst running backs analytically last season, so it's debatable what he might be able to offer fantasy owners. Consider him a low-end flex option at best.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is believed to be dealing with turf toe and expected to miss 'some time,' according to a source via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Week 2 marked the first time in Daniel Jones' pro career that he had Saquon Barkley, Shepard, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram all available at the same time, but it was short-lived and obviously won't happen again in 2020 with Barkley's ACL injury. Assuming Shepard misses at least a couple of games, Slayton and Tate are good bets to flirt with WR3 production, although starting either player will come with limited upside against the San Francisco Giants in Week 3.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) will miss the rest of the season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis figure to divvy up the workload, and neither of them will replace Barkley in fantasy for you. However, both should be owned as flex options. The team plans to meet with Devonta Freeman, and he could be worth the speculative pickup as well.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted three receptions for 33 yards on six targets in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Slayton took a big step back after his 100-yard opening performance. He'll try to get back on track in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers, another tough defense. Treat him as a WR4 or flex fantasy play for that one.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate posted five catches for 47 yards in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears in his season debut.
Huddle Up: Tate missed Game 1 due to a hamstring injury. He is a decent low-end WR3 or must-start WR4 heading into Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram finished with game highs of six receptions, 65 yards and eight targets in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: It's all hands on deck for the G-Men, as Saquon Barkley went down with what is believed to be a season-ending knee injury. Engram is still a borderline low-end TE1 or TE2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Giants host the 49ers in Week 3.

New York Giants RB Dion Lewis ran 10 times for 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears and he added four catches for 36 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Lewis is expected to be the primary ball carrier after starter Saquon Barkley suffered a suspected torn ACL, and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Lewis is worth grabbing if you need an emergency fantasy replacement.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 25-of-40 passes for 241 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears with three runs for 21 yards.
Huddle Up: Jones struggled, and he had to play a majority of the game without his biggest weapon, Saquon Barkley. He might have to go the rest of the way without Barkley, who suffered a suspected torn ACL. That's bad news for Jones, as he drops plenty of balls off to Barkley out of the backfield for big yardage. He remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) suffered a toe injury during the Week 2 game and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Shepard is able to return. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton would be the main receivers for the Giants if Shepard misses time and both could be starting options for players.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is undergoing X-rays on the knee injury he suffered during the Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: It appears like Barkley is dealing with a serious injury, but fantasy players should know more about his status in the next few days. Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis probably would share playing time if Barkley misses time. Gallman could be a flex option if he receives most of the carries in the running game.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) is active for Week 2's game against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Tate is likely to receive a decent number of targets in this afternoon's game, making him a viable WR3 or flex option in all fantasy formats.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Tate appears to have a better chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays and should receive a decent amount of targets.

Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Freeman was linked to the Eagles this summer, but nothing ever came of it as the team professed its support of Boston Scott and Corey Clement behind Miles Sanders. However, Scott left with an injury early in Week 1 and Clement didn't do much in relief. Sanders is expected to be a full-go in Week 2 after missing the opener, but there's enough chaos here at the moment that it can't hurt to see if Freeman can help. Barring massive injuries to the backfield, however, it's hard to imagine Freeman being a fantasy option in Philly.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Tate was not able to play in Week 1 but appears to have a chance to be in uniform this week. He probably will see a decent amount of targets if he is active and could be at least a flex option.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram is not viewed by the team as a 'one-dimensional player,' offensive coordinator Jason Garrett said Thursday, Sept. 17, adding that they're going to continue to use Engram in all facets of the game.
Huddle Up: Engram had only two receptions for nine yards on seven targets in Week 1, but extra blocking was needed going against one of the league's best defenses in the Steelers. The Bears are no cakewalk either in Week 2, but still stay with him as a TE1.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Tate has likely slipped behind WRs Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard. He won't be a fantasy option when both are healthy until the Giants offense shows it can sustain multiple options in the passing game.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram posted two receptions for nine yards on seven targets in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Engram is still a decent low-end TE1 or solid flex fantasy option, he just had a poor game in this one. You can feel good about the fact he was targeted, he and Daniel Jones just had troubling connecting. He'll look to bounce back in Week 2 in Chicago.

Posted 9/15/2020 4:02 am UTC
New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman did not have a carry in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14, and he was limited to one reception for 14 yards on one target.
Huddle Up: Saquon Barkley was going nowhere, and Dion Lewis is now in the backfield, too, so Gallman's usefulness even in the deepest of fantasy leagues is nonexistent right now. He isn't worth fantasy consideration heading into Week 2 in Chicago.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with six catches and 47 yards on six targets in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Shepard was overshadowed by Darius Slayton in this one, but he was one of three G-Men to post six receptions. He'll get plenty of looks and remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Giants travel to meet the Bears in Week 2.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted six receptions for 102 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14. He was targeted nine times.
Huddle Up: Slayton, Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard each had six receptions, and the targets were distributed fairly evenly, but Slayton looks like he could be the big-play guy and downfield threat. Fantasy owners who took a chance on him in the middle to late rounds love that. He will look to build on the momentum heading into Week 2 at Chicago.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley registered just six rushing yards on 15 attempts in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14. He was able to post six receptions and 60 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: Barkley looked like he was trying to run against 15 defenders rather than 11, as the Steelers were all over him. His longest run of the 15 attempts was just seven yards. He remains an obvious must-start fantasy player who you drafted in Round 1. He'll face another tough outing in Chicago in Week 2, but things will lighten up after that.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 26-of-41 passes for 279 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also rushed four times for a team-high 22 yards.
Huddle Up: The Steelers did a great job defensively, so Jones had a tough night, including a late interception in the red zone. There will be better days for Danny Dimes and the G-Men. They look to bounce back in Week 2, but face another tough defense on the road in Chicago. He remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues for now.
