New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (shoulder, toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will know more about Shepard's status later in the week. He has been targeted 18 times in three games this season and has posted 135 yards during that span. He will have a tough matchup this week but can still be a flex option in most leagues.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Freeman suffered the injury in the last game, so fantasy players will need to monitor his situation during the week. He will be facing one of the better defenses in the NFL if he is active and may only be a possible flex option.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) is out of practice Tuesday, Oct. 27. He was working off to the side.
Huddle Up: It's too early to tell whether he'll be good to go for Week 8. Continue to monitor the low-end RB2 throughout the week.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram has received trade interest from other teams, but the Giants don't appear willing to deal him unless they're blown away with an offer.
Huddle Up: Engram has not performed like the upper-middle TE1 he was drafted as in this lost season for the Giants. He has 22 catches for 223 yards, no touchdowns but did score once on the ground. He has been very brittle in his young career, which makes the upside on his buy-low prospects murky.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram has received some trade interest from other teams, but the team does not plan on moving him before the trade deadline.
Huddle Up: Engram has been targeted at least five times in five of the seven games this season but has posted at least 50 yards in one game in 2020. He will continue to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Giants and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate is on the trade block leading up to the trade deadline.
Huddle Up: Tate has been limited to only 195 yards and one touchdown in six games and has only two receptions in the last two games. He probably will not have much value wherever he plays and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard had six receptions, 59 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Shepard was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: It was a nice return for Shepard, who hadn't played since Week 2 due to a toe injury. He led the club in receptions and yards, and he scored one of their three touchdowns. He'll get an extended break before Week 8 as the Giants are set to face Tampa Bay on Monday night. There are still some things to sort out with the Giants' passing game, but Shepard could be a WR3/flex candidate going forward.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton had two catches (on four targets) for 23 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Slayton has been NY's top weapon in the passing game this season, but he took a backseat to Sterling Shepard on Thursday night. Whether that'll turn out to be a trend remains to be seen, but do bear in mind that Slayton has been struggling with a foot issue recently. Definitely keep him on your roster for now, but you may want to be cautious with playing him in Week 8 given the uncertain receiver dynamic.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate caught one pass for 39 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Tate came up with a 50/50 ball early on and took it to the house for his first TD since Week 17 of 2019, which was the last time that the Giants played the Eagles. While the TD was nice, Tate was only targeted one other time and doesn't offer the same upside as Darius Slayton or a returning Sterling Shepard. With a declining role, Tate isn't worth retaining outside of larger leagues.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught six passes for 46 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also carried the ball twice for three yards.
Huddle Up: Engram's performance Thursday night will be remembered for the catch he didn't make as Daniel Jones' throw on third down fell incomplete on a ball the tight end should've secured. It forced NY to punt, and the Eagles drove down and won the game. At least Engram's activity level was encouraging as he matched a season high with six receptions and was targeted nine times. While he entered 2020 as a top-10 fantasy tight end, Engram's prolonged swoon has made him nearly impossible to rely on.

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman carried the ball 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Gallman added five receptions for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: After Devonta Freeman bowed out with an ankle injury, Gallman took over as the primary back, racking up 15 combined touches, 54 yards and a score. Now the question becomes the severity of Freeman's injury; if he stands to miss significant time, Gallman would become a priority addition. Conversely, if Freeman sounds like he'll return in Week 8 there's no reason to pluck Gallman off of waivers.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 187 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. He ran four times for 92 yards and also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Without question, Jones was responsible for the play of the night when he kept a read option and ran 80 yards only to trip and fall with no defender between him and the end zone. It was representative of his game, which had its ups (a 97-yard drive to seemingly take control late) and downs (a bad INT and a strip sack that ended the Giants chances at a win). At least the Giants gave Jones more to do this week after he did little Sunday against Washington. He's still not a starting candidate, but he could be carried as depth.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) suffered an ankle injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7 and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: If Freeman misses extended action, Wayne Gallman figures to be the next man up, at least on early downs.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) on Thursday, Oct. 22, was activated off the Reserve/Injured list. He will work out before Thursday night's game in Philadelphia, and the team will determine if he's active.
Huddle Up: Time to update your IR list, and if you're looking to use Shepard on Thursday night, you're obviously going to have to check in pregame. He's a flex play if he's active.

Correcting a previous report, New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) is not on the injury report for the Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: Slayton was limited all week but is on track to see his normal workload. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 19. The Giants did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Slayton found the end zone last week for the first time since Week 1 but has been held to under 50 yards in three of the last five games. He should have success against the Philadelphia Eagles and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is 'a little closer to returning' and his status for Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles could come down to a pregame workout, according to comments made by head coach Joe Judge on Monday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: New York plays on Thursday, reducing the possibility that he'll be able to play. It's much more likely with the one-win Giants give him another 1 1/2 weeks to reintegrate himself into the offense in advance of their Week 8 Monday Night Football game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It seems unlikely he'll be anything more than a low-end flex option in what is easily one of the worst offenses in the league at this point in the season.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate has managed just one catch for 11 yards on his only target in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Tate has managed at least four receptions in each of his four previous games, so this was a big disappointment for those who depend upon him in deeper PPR leagues. The Giants travel to meet the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday in Week 7.

New York Giants TE Evan Engram was limited to receptions for 30 yards on three targets in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Engram's production, like the Giants pass game overall, has been shaky. He has two or more grabs in five of his six games, but he hasn't had a receiving score (he has one rushing TD). He remains more of a low-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 in Philadelphia on Thursday.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton ended up with two receptions for a team-high 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Slayton has managed two or more catches in each of his six games this season. His touchdown was his first score since he found the end zone twice in Week 1. He is still more of a WR5 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman ran 18 times for 61 yards in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team and he added one reception for minus-4 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: The yardage total wasn't great, but he continues to see a larger workload every week. He can be trusted as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Giants have a quick turnaround, traveling to face the Eagles in Week 7 on Thursday night.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 12-of-19 passes for 112 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Washington Football team and he ran for 74 yards on seven attempts.
Huddle Up: The stat line was terrible from a fantasy perspective, especially the yardage total, but the touchdown was actually his first since Week 1. Jones shouldn't even be used in fantasy leagues starting two quarterbacks right now. The Giants travel to meet the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night in Week 7.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) is officially active for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Slayton has earned the No. 1 receiver job with the Giants and should see a solid amount of targets this week. He can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Slayton may be a game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He has taken over the main receiver role with the Giants and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he plays.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is unlikely to return this week, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, who wrote that a return could be 'rule[d] out this week' before suggesting Shepard might play in Week 7 against the Eagles -- a game that takes place on Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Considering that the Giants haven't had a passing touchdown since Week 1 it's safe to say any return might be beneficial. Given the play of Darius Slayton this year, however, it's unclear where Shepard will fit into the hierarchy alongside Slayton and Golden Tate.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) might not be ready to return from the Reserve/Injured list this week, and the team has not yet started the 21-day clock on his potential return.
Huddle Up: Shepard's return will be nice for a Giants offense which doesn't have a ton of weapons. However, he is only worth a look as a WR5 in most fantasy leagues when healthy. Avoid using him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
