  • Xavier McKinney, Oshane Ximines Return From Injured Reserve

    The New York Giants Defense could have both safety Xavier McKinney (foot) and linebacker Oshane Ximines (shoulder) back in the mix Sunday versus Cincinnati after having designated both to return from Injured Reserve on Monday. McKinney was the team's second-round draft choice this year, although he would likely play a limited role in his first game, per head coach Joe Judge. Ximines has started three of the four contests that he has appeared in this year, combining for five tackles and three quarterback hits. Their availability will become clearer following Wednesday's practice. While not a standout group in their own right, the Giants defense should have streaming appeal due to its matchup versus Bengals backup quarterbackRyan Finley, who will be making his first start in place of the injuredJoe Burrow.

  • Giants Fire Offensive Line Coach Mark Colombo

    The New York Giants fired offensive line coach Mark Colombo on Wednesday and are bringing in longtime NFL assistant Dave DeGuglielmo to replace him, according to sources. First-round left tackle Andrew Thomas hasn't really developed up front, which appears to be the primary motivation for this move. Head coach Joe Judge was spending more time with the offensive line in recent weeks, so the move to a new assistant coach should free him up for his many other responsibilities. The change should only help quarterback Daniel Jones and the Giants running game in the second half of the season.

  • Giants Putting Graham Gano On COVID-19 List

    New York Giants kicker Graham Gano will be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for coronavirus on Tuesday. Two staff members were identified as high-risk close contacts. Gano is expected to miss some practice but play in the team's Week 12 game against the Bengals. They have their bye in Week 11. Gano just signed a three-year extension with the team on Sunday. The 33-year-old has been really solid for the G-Men this year and ranks ninth in football at his position in overall fantasy points through 10 weeks. He's made a league-high 21 of his 22 field-goal attempts and has been perfect in his 16 extra-point tries this season. Gano will be firmly in starting consideration when the team returns from their bye, as long as he's officially cleared from COVID-19 protocols.

  • Sterling Shepard Catches All Six Targets On Sunday

    New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught all six of his targets for 47 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Shepard has now been targeted six times or more in all four games since returning from a toe injury. Shepard has the most consistent role in this offense and is the most trustworthy Giants receiver to roster in fantasy. He'll be a start-worthy WR2/3 in a solid matchup versus the Bengals in Week 12 after the bye week.

  • Golden Tate Makes Two Catches In Win Over Eagles

    New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate caught two-of-five targets for 44 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Tate was playing in his first game since he landed in hot water for social media posts by him and his wife criticizing Tate's role in the offense, among other things. The five targets, however, are just about what he was averaging prior to this week so it doesn't appear head coach Joe Judge made an attempt to get Tate more involved. Tate is playing behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton and is only a fantasy option in the deepest of leagues.

  • Darius Slayton Records 93 Yards Versus Eagles

    New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton made five catches for 93 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. It was a nice bounce-back performance for fantasy managers after Slayton was targeted just once last week. Slayton saw seven targets in this game to lead the team. He's gone invisible at times, but Slayton also has had some big games this year and can be considered a WR3 in fantasy moving forward.

  • Evan Engram Regresses With Just Two Catches

    New York Giants tight end Evan Engram put up a dud for fantasy managers in Week 10 catching just two passes for 15 yards. The Ole Miss tight end had been rising up fantasy ranks with 29 targets over the last three games, but Engram saw just three passes from Daniel Jones in this game. Despite the down-game, Engram still usually has one of the highest floors in fantasy and should be more involved versus the Bengals in Week 12 after the bye. Engram should be rostered in 12-team leagues and larger through the bye.

  • Giants Defense Quiet Versus Philadelphia

    The New York Giants Defense had a quiet afternoon in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. New York allowed 17 points and recorded three sacks, but did not force a turnover in the contest. The unit played well overall with cornerback James Bradberry turning in another strong effort, but it didn't materialize into many fantasy points. The Giants are not worth holding onto through their bye in Week 11.

  • Graham Gano Signs Three-Year Extension

    New York Giants kicker Graham Gano signed a three-year extension worth $14 million on Sunday. Gano has been fantastic for the Giants this year, hitting 21 of his 22 field goal attempts. The 33-year-old Gano is in his first year with the Giants after spending seven years with the Carolina Panthers. In the right matchups, he's a decent starting kicker option in fantasy leagues going forward.

  • Alfred Morris Rushes For 34 Yards

    New York Giants running back Alfred Morris rushed eight times for 34 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Morris has been used as a change-of-pace back to rest starter Wayne Gallman, but can't be trusted in fantasy playing second-fiddle in this backfield. Gallman scored two touchdowns with QB Daniel Jones also rushing one in and there aren't enough red zone carries to go around in New York. Morris wasn't targeted in the passing game either, meaning if he doesn't score, he's not providing much fantasy value. Morris' role should get smaller before it gets larger if Devonta Freeman (foot) returns from injury. Morris can be left on waivers in fantasy.

  • Wayne Gallman Finds End Zone Twice In Week 10

    New York Giants running back Wayne Gallman handled 18 carries for 53 yards and two touchdowns in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Gallman added one catch for seven yards in the passing game. With Devonta Freeman (foot) on injured reserve, Gallman should continue to serve as the lead-back after the team's Week 11 bye. He has double-digit carries in four straight games and has been heavily involved in the red zone. New York isn't the most explosive offense, but Gallman is getting plenty of touches to be a must-roster fantasy asset. He'll be a start-worthy option in Week 12 versus Cincinnati.

  • Daniel Jones Efficient In Win Versus Eagles

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 21 passes on 28 attempts for 244 scoreless yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Jones made a bigger fantasy impact with his legs rushing nine times for 64 yards and a touchdown. Most importantly, Jones protected the football playing his second-straight turnover-free game after turning the ball over at least once in every game through Week 9. He started the season slow, but the sophomore QB has been playing better lately with three-straight 200-plus yard games in addition to his rushing upside. He'll be a start-worthy QB in two-quarterback formats against the Bengals in Week 12 after the bye week.

  • Darius Slayton Returns To Game

    New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton exited in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a shoulder injury, but has returned to the game. It's possible that Slayton will be below 100 percent for the rest of this one, lowering his ceiling and potentially giving more opportunities to Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate.

  • Golden Tate Active, Dante Pettis Inactive

    New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is active for Sunday's meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles. Considering Tate missed last game due to a team suspension, we aren't expecting a ton from him this week. He hasn't seen five targets since Week 5 and is a touchdown-dependent play this week. Recently acquired receiver Dante Pettis is inactive and will have to wait for his Giants debut, though Pettis shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radars.

  • Golden Tate Trending In The Right Direction

    New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (knee) is "trending in the right direction" ahead of a Week 10 matchup against the Eagles. Tate has missed two games this year, one with a hamstring injury and the other as discipline for comments he made concerning his lack of targets. The veteran wide receiver has turned up his fantasy production a bit in his last few games, though he'd still check-in as the team's third option behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. Tate is on the WR4/5 border.

  • Devonta Freeman Going On Injured Reserve

    The New York Giants are placing running back Devonta Freeman (ankle) on Injured Reserve on Friday, according to a source. Freeman will have a chance to return after three weeks. The 28-year-old former Falcon will miss his third straight game in Week 10 against the Eagles and more as he deals with a nagging foot injury. There's a good chance that Freeman won't be able to help fantasy managers again this season, so he's droppable in shallower formats. In his place, Wayne Gallman should continue to serve as the club's primary ball-carrier, with veteran Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis chipping in as well. On a bad team in a bad matchup this Sunday, though, Gallman should be considered a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex.

  • Evan Engram A Must-Start Option Versus Eagles

    New York Giants tight end Evan Engram has been heating up over the last three games and earned his first receiving touchdown of the season last week in Washington. Engram has been a favorite target of Daniel Jones as Engram has 29 targets over the last three games. That kind of target-share makes Engram a must-start option regardless of matchup. However, fantasy managers should expect a good game from Engram this week as the Eagles allow the third-most PPR fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Start Engram in all formats in Week 10.

    Nov 13 · Source via Giants Evan Engram
  • Giants Defense A Low-End Option Versus Eagles

    The New York Giants Defense has been a mediocre-at-best unit for fantasy this season but faces a good matchup versus the Eagles in Week 10. Philadelphia allows the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing defenses so New York can be in play. James Bradberry has been a rising-star at cornerback, but there is little else to be excited about on this defense. The Giants can be started as in deeper fantasy leagues given their matchup and the plethora of teams on bye.

  • Joe Judge Optimistic Golden Tate Plays Sunday

    New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (knee) is expected to be back on the active roster in Week 10 against the Eagles. Head coach Joe Judge said he was "optimistic" the veteran receiver can play this week, but added he wants to see Tate in practice first. Tate was held out of last week's game against Washington for disciplinary reasons stemming from an issue on social media. Even if he suits up, it's hard to recommend Tate in fantasy. He'll be playing behind Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard with Evan Engram also in the mix for targets from Daniel Jones.

  • Darius Slayton A Boom-Or-Bust Option Against Eagles

    New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is coming off a season-worst game last week in which he caught just one pass for six yards. Slayton has had huge games this season but has also gone invisible at times making him one of the more frustrating receivers to roster in fantasy. Slayton has five games this season with seven or more targets but also has three games with four or fewer targets. One of those games was a three target, two catch game versus the Eagles in Week 7 so fantasy managers should hope for a better result this time around. Golden Tate (knee) returning further complicates Slayton's target share in this matchup. Fantasy managers can start Slayton as a risky flex option in Week 10.

  • Sterling Shepard Looking To Keep Momentum In Philly

    New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has asserted himself as the top receiving option for the team since returning from injury three weeks ago. Shepard has at least eight targets in all three games and will look to keep it up versus a beatable Eagles secondary. The fifth-year receiver played a season-high 78 percent of the snaps last week so he seems to be completely recovered from a toe injury that kept him sidelined earlier this season. Golden Tate is expected to be back for New York this week, but Shepard's target-share seems the safest of all the Giants receivers and he can be started as a WR3 in 12-team fantasy leagues.

  • Dion Lewis, Alfred Morris Not In Play For Fantasy In Week 10

    New York Giants running backs Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris are not startable options in Week 10, even with Devonta Freeman (ankle) expected to miss his third straight game. Wayne Gallman has been used as the lead back for New York with double-digit carries in three straight games, including 14 last week in a win at Washington. Morris has been used as a change-of-pace from Gallman, but he isn't seeing enough carries to be effective as the second back in a bad offense. Lewis is primarily used on passing downs and caught a touchdown two weeks ago, but he has just one game with more than three carries, making him a fantasy football afterthought.

  • Wayne Gallman Should Lead New York Backfield Again

    New York Giants running back Wayne Gallman has led the backfield over the last three weeks and should see enough touches to be a startable fantasy option in Week 10. Gallman has double-digit carries in three straight games in the absence of Devonta Freeman (ankle), though Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis have also been involved. Freeman did practice earlier in the week but reaggravated his ankle injury so his status for Sunday is up in the air. Assuming Freeman isn't active, Gallman is a volume-based RB3 in a tough matchup with an Eagles Defense that allows the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs.

  • Devonta Freeman Not Practicing Friday

    New York Giants running back Devonta Freeman (ankle) was not seen practicing during individual drills at Friday's practice. Freeman was expected to return this week for a divisional showdown with Philadelphia but reaggravated his ankle injury early in Thursday's practice. Not practicing again Friday is a bad omen for his chances of suiting up this Sunday, and at this point, fantasy managers can't trust him even if the veteran RB is active. Wayne Gallman would continue to have flex-value in 12-team fantasy leagues as the lead back in New York, though Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis will be involved as well.

  • Will Hernandez Expected To Play Sunday

    New York Giants guard Will Hernandez was back at practice this week after being cleared to return to the team. Hernandez missed the last two games while in quarantine after a positive COVID-19 test. Getting reinforcements on the offensive line should be a boost to the offense as a whole, as quarterbackDaniel Jones has been sacked 11 times in the last three games. The running game should also benefit, regardless if its Devonta Freeman (ankle) or Wayne Gallman leading the backfield for Big Blue this weekend.

  • Daniel Jones A Risky Start Versus Eagles

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones hasn't taken the next step in his sophomore season but played well last week and will look to carry that momentum into a divisional showdown with Philadelphia. Jones played his first turnover-free game last week in a win at Washington - though he did fumble twice - and threw for 212 yards making it back-to-back games with 200-plus yards for the first time since Weeks 1 and 2. The Eagles aren't an overly daunting matchup as they rank 19th in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, but they did sack Jones three times in their first meeting and had pressure on the New York signal caller all game. Start Jones in two-quarterback leagues as a low-end QB2, but managers in one-quarterback leagues should be able to find a QB with more upside.
