New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted five touchdowns of at least 25 yards last season, which was tied for most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Slayton showed solid chemistry with Daniel Jones last season and likely is in line for a bigger role in the passing game. He has a chance to be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues depending on his targets.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton could have a sophomore season comparable to Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (2018) or Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (2013), according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. Rosenblatt bases those comparisons on Slayton's rookie production of 740 yards, eight touchdowns and 48 receptions while working with fellow rookie QB Daniel Jones.
Huddle Up: Slayton's touchdown percentage of 16.7 percent ranked second in the entire NFL in 2019. He'll have to share the ball more with WRs Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard in 2020, but he should retain a large role. He's a high-end WR3.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton will be 'the same factor he's always been' even with WR Sterling Shepard and WR Golden Tate now healthy, according to wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert.
Huddle Up: Slayton is unlikely to see the same number of targets with Shepard and Tate also in the mix, but he has been the most explosive weapon for the Giants and could be a boom-or-bust option in a pinch against a vulnerable Philadelphia secondary in Week 14.
