  • Kadarius Toney Has Minor Knee Procedure

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (knee) hasn't been a full participant at recent OTAs. The 23-year-old was observed wearing the infamous no-contact red jersey, although it was later revealed he hasn't practiced because of minor arthroscopic knee surgery. Fortunately, the 2021 first-round pick should be ready to roll by training camp. Toney, who was rumored to be on the trade block a few months ago, has a chance of establishing himself as the team's top wideout this season. Yet, having Daniel Jones under center may make accumulating fantasy points a challenge, regardless of his place on the depth chart.

  • Kadarius Toney Making A Good Impression

    New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka said that wide receiver Kadarius Toney is "doing all the right things...on and off the field." Kafka also said Toney is being attentive in meetings and has been good to work with during offseason team activities this week. At the same time, Toney's workload has been dialed back a bit due to undisclosed reasons. The 23-year-old played in only 10 games in his rookie season last year due to injuries, so the Giants are probably just playing it safe with him early in the offseason. Toney has a lot of playmaking abilities, but there are a lot of mouths to feed in New York's passing attack if everyone is healthy. The former first-round pick will be a high-risk, high-reward fantasy selection after he had 39 catches for 420 yards and no touchdowns in his first NFL season.

  • Giants Want Daniel Jones To "Turn It Loose"

    New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll wants quarterback Daniel Jones to "turn it loose" this season. "Yeah, look, we want to make sure we protect the ball," Daboll said. "But again, you can't go out there and play afraid. Be smart, not reckless, if you will. If he's got a shot on the right read, let it go." Jones has worked in the past to limit turnovers -- he threw 17 interceptions the last two years -- but it has led to a conservative approach. The 24-year-old has 49 total turnovers since he was a first-rounder in 2019, which is tied for third-most in the league. Jones has the weapons around him to be successful in 2022, especially if running back Saquon Barkley stays healthy, but fantasy managers shouldn't invest in him as anything more than a potential upside QB2.

  • Giants Make Handful Of Roster Moves

    The Giants made some minor moves to shake up their defense today. The organization signed defensive back Michael Jacquet and waived defensive tackle Antonio Valentino (via Dan Salomone of the team’s website on Twitter). Jacquet went undrafted out of Louisiana in 2020 before catching on with the Eagle. He ended up seeing time in seven […]

  • Saquon Barkley Could Catch More Passes In 2022

    The New York Giants have featured a bunch of empty sets and pre-snap motion in their offense during organized team activities this week. A healthy running back Saquon Barkley is expected to catch a lot of passes this year from quarterback Daniel Jones, who has been getting the ball out quickly in head coach Brian Daboll's new offense. Barkley was lined up in the slot on one play with Matt Breida in the backfield and ran a deep post. The 25-year-old former second overall pick was a Pro Bowler and played a full season in his rookie campaign, but he's been injury prone ever since and will likely fall in 2022 fantasy drafts as a result. There's still plenty of upside if Barkley can stay healthy, though, after he had 593 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 162 carries in 13 games last year. He added 41 receptions for 263 yards and two scores through the air.

  • Giants Sign Jalyn Holmes, Maurice Canady

    Restrained in their approach to bolstering their edge rush for a few years, the Giants certainly changed that strategy this year via their Kayvon Thibodeaux pick. The team added another piece to its Thibodeaux-fronted edge mix Wednesday. Former Vikings defensive end Jalyn Holmes signed with the Giants, who also added three more defenders. That includes […]

  • James Bradberry Agrees With Eagles

    Former New York Giants Pro Bowl cornerback James Bradberry agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year deal for $10 million on Wednesday, according to sources. It's a big-time post-draft addition for the Eagles secondary, and Bradberry will stay in the NFC East in 2022. The New York Giants released the 28-year-old just over a week ago, and it predictably didn't take the Pro Bowler long to find a new home. The Eagles didn't address cornerback in the draft, so Bradberry is a much-needed addition to the position. In his two seasons with New York, Bradberry had 81 solo tackles, seven interceptions, 35 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 32 games (31 starts).

  • Evan Neal Inks Rookie Deal On Saturday

    Former Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal signed his rookie deal on Saturday, agreeing to a fully guaranteed four-year, $24.55 million contract, with a team option for a fifth season. Neal, who stands 6'7" and weighs in at around 350 pounds, was selected with the No. 7 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. The 21-year-old is an imposing figure who possesses the skill needed to bolster a weak offensive line, which may make life easier for Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, two players who battled injuries over the years.

  • Giants Sign Kayvon Thibodeaux

    Former Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux officially signed with the Giants on Saturday, agreeing to a four-year, $24.55 million deal. The contract is fully guaranteed, with a team option for a fifth year. A No. 5 overall selection, Thibodeaux was highly touted entering the 2022 NFL Draft. The 21-year-old was dominant in college, totaling 19 sacks throughout his time with the Ducks. It may take him some time to get his footing under him at the professional level. However, he should be a force for many years to come, so IDP dynasty managers should expect him to fly off the board quickly.

  • Giants Release James Bradberry Monday

    The New York Giants released cornerback James Bradberry on Monday after failing to find a trade partner, according to a source. The move will create $10.1 million in salary cap savings this year while leaving $11.7 million in dead money. The savings will be $11.5 million with $10.4 million in dead money this year and $1.4 million in dead money in 2023 if they make it a June 1 cut. The 28-year-old shouldn't be on the open market for long, as he recorded 101 tackles, seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in his two seasons in New York. This move was all about saving the cash-strapped Giants some money.
