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 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.

Updating a previous story, New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: Any minor concern should now be gone and he's free to be taken as a WR3/4 in all formats.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Slayton is dealing with a significant injury. He showed a good connection with Daniel Jones last season and should have a solid role in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

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 (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.

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 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.
