  • Daniel Bellinger Looking Like No. 1 TE

    New York Giants rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger was the clear No. 1 tight end at training camp practice on Friday. Chris Myarick saw action with the starters in rare two-tight end sets, while rookie Andre Miller lined up as a fullback in the jumbo goal-line formation. Bellinger is getting extra repetitions with the first-team offense with veteran Ricky Seals-Jones missing his sixth straight practice on Friday with an undisclosed injury. Even if Seals-Jones were healthy, though, there's no guarantee he'd beat out Bellinger for the top pass-catching role at the position for the Giants. The fourth-rounder briefly landed on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a quadriceps injury, but he's healthy now and is the favorite to open the year as the starting tight end.

  • Darius Slayton Works With Third-Team Offense

    New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton was working with the third-team offense in training camp practice on Friday. Rookie Wan'Dale Robinson, Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney worked with the first team, while Richie James, Collin Johnson and C.J. Board worked with the second team. Slayton worked with Keelan Doss, Austin Proehl and Alex Bachman. It continues to look like it will be an uphill battle for Slayton, a fourth-year pro, to make the final roster out of training camp. It's especially disappointing since Sterling Shepard (Achilles) still isn't practicing with the team. Slayton, who caught a career-low 26 passes (58 targets) for 339 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games (five starts) last year, is well off the fantasy radar for obvious reasons.

  • Kadarius Toney Has The Highest Ceiling Of Giants WRs

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney is probably the best bet for fantasy production among the team's wideouts this year. Toney is young and explosive and has been on the field this summer after battling injuries in 2021. He was targeted on 29.8% of his routes run in his rookie season, the eighth-highest total in the NFL. Even though the Giants have a new coaching staff this year, the desire to get Toney the ball has not changed. Questions continue to surround Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard, which only gives Toney more value. Fantasy managers have avoided players on the Giants in recent seasons, but Toney is worth a late-round flier as a WR4/flex this year with quarterback Daniel Jones healthy.

  • Dane Belton Suffers Broken Collarbone

    New York Giants rookie safety Dane Belton (collarbone) has suffered a broken collarbone and will be sidelined an extended period of time, according to sources. It's a tough break for the fourth-rounder, as he had been making a strong impression in training camp. There remains hope that he can be ready for the start of the regular season, but The Bergen Record's Art Stapleton is reporting that Belton will miss six to eight weeks. The 21-year-old should return at some point this season, but he'll miss valuable repetitions in training camp and the preseason leading up to his first NFL campaign.

  • Giants Waiting To See More From Kenny Golladay

    The New York Giants are waiting to see more from wide receiver Kenny Golladay, who isn't separating from defensive backs well early in training camp. NBC Sports' Peter King writes that the Giants' signing of Golladay for $18 million a year looks like a disaster. Instead, rookie Wan'Dale Robinson has stood out in camp because of his versatility and confidence, and he could earn the starting slot job right away. Thursday will mark 22 months since the last touchdown scored by Golladay. The 28-year-old finished with 37 catches on 76 targets for 521 yards and no scores in 14 games last year. The Giants are hoping a new offense under head coach Brian Daboll and a healthy Daniel Jones will help Golladay bounce back, but fantasy managers should be treating him as a WR4/5.

  • Giants Rookie Wan'Dale Robinson In Line To Start?

    The Giants have a number of options to choose from at receiver, each of whom is more experienced than Wan'Dale Robinson. The second-round rookie is currently making a case for a starting role right away, however.  As noted by The Athletic’s Dan Duggan (subscription required), Robinson is currently occupying a first-team role in training camp practices.

  • Saquon Barkley Looks Good In Training Camp

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has reportedly looked good early in training camp. This is a great sign after back-to-back down years for the stud back. Barkley hasn't rushed for 1,000-plus yards since the 2019 campaign, but that could change this season. The Giants have bulked up their offensive line this offseason. Also, Brian Daboll is known for being one of the best offensive minds in the league. The biggest key for Barkley is actually staying on the field. He has played in a total of 15 games over the last two seasons. A healthy Barkley with an improved o-line could bring the former first round pick back to form.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Has Been Impressive In Camp

    New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson has been a highly talked about player lately. He was recently seen taking first team reps, which is a bit surprising. Robinson was taken in a second round by the Giants. The Kentucky standout has reportedly been the star of training camp, according to Peter King. That being said, he is becoming a popular late-round selection in drafts this offseason. It's worth noting that the Giants do have Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, and Sterling Shepard (Achilles) on their roster. Although, it's uncertain if Shepard is going to be ready by the beginning of the season. That being said, Robinson could start the season in the slot until Shepard is ready.

  • Giants Host Devontae Booker Friday

    The New York Giants hosted free-agent running back Devontae Booker on a tryout on Friday. Booker was released by the Giants earlier this offseason in a move to save salary cap space, but he ran well for the team in 2021. The 30-year-old had 145 carries for 593 yards (4.1 yards per carry) and two touchdowns on the ground, adding a career-high 40 receptions for 268 yards and another TD through the air in 16 games (four starts). MattBreida is currently the team's top backup behind Saquon Barkley, but the Giants may consider re-signing Booker to provide some extra backfield insurance this year.

  • Kadarius Toney Praised By Head Coach

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney was praised by head coach Brian Daboll after the second day of training camp. "He's a smart football player. You can tell that he has good instincts as a football player," said Daboll. Toney has been impressive during the first two days of camp and was the star of Day 1 after making a contested catch in the corner of the endzone. If Toney can stay healthy, he has a legitimate chance to be the No. 1 option in the passing game in the New York offense. However, that remains to be seen considering he suited up in just 10 games as a rookie after suffering a number of different injuries. He was able to show flashes of brilliance last season, including a performance of 10 catches for 189 yards. Now, in what should be a much-improved passing attack from 2021, the former Florida collegiate star is a potential breakout candidate heading into his sophomore season and could find himself in the FLEX discussion for fantasy managers early on.

  • Saquon Barkley Confident He Can Regain Elite Form

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will be heading into his fifth season with a lot to prove after a forgettable past two years. In 2020, Barkley tore his ACL which limited him to just two games, and struggled to get back up to speed during the 2021 season. Despite a rough past couple of years, the 25-year-old is still confident in his abilities. "I just want to show the Giants that the guy they drafted is still here." The former Penn State collegiate star has a much-improved situation heading into the 2022 season with an upgraded offensive line and a coaching staff that will take advantage of his playmaking ability. Now two years removed from his ACL injury, Barkley is a strong bounce-back candidate with the chance to vault himself back into the RB1 discussion for fantasy managers.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Working Out Of Backfield

    New York Giants rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson immediately was running with the first-team offense in training camp practice on Wednesday, and the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard also said he's frequently seeing Robinson lined up at running back with Saquon Barkley in the slot. Robinson has plenty of experience as a rusher from his time in college at Nebraska before transferring to Kentucky, and it's clear that the Giants like his versatility on offense. Keep in mind that Sterling Shepard (Achilles) isn't practicing, but Robinson could still have a big role in the offense alongside Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney in his first NFL season, particularly early in the year if Shepard isn't ready. Robinson is a rookie wideout on the rise and is worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

  • Daniel Bellinger Activated From PUP List

    New York Giants rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger (quadriceps) passed his physical and has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list. Bellinger was immediately working with the first-team offense at training camp practice on Wednesday, too. The Giants lost tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Evan Engram in free agency, but they added Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins at the position. Bellinger will receive consideration for the starting job in his first NFL season if he beats out Seals-Jones this summer. There's a lot to like about the 21-year-old, but it's notoriously difficult for rookie TEs to make an immediate impact in the NFL, and the Giants also have plenty of pass-catching weapons at the receiver position, provided they can stay healthy this year.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Working With First-Team Offense

    New York Giants rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson was working with the first-team offense at practice on Wednesday alongside Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney. Keep in mind that Sterling Shepard (Achilles) opened training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but it's worth noting that Robinson is already ahead of Darius Slayton on the crowded receiver depth chart in New York. Shepard isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1, though, so Robinson could very well open the season in a starting role in three-receiver sets. The 21-year-old had 104 receptions for 1,334 yards and seven touchdowns at Kentucky in 2021 and could be a sneaky late-round addition in deeper fantasy leagues this year.

  • Kadarius Toney Avoids PUP List

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (knee) was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning he will be a full go to start training camp. Toney underwent minor arthroscopic knee surgery in May and was a non-contact participant at OTAs this spring. The 23-year-old was hampered by injuries during his rookie season in 2021, limiting him to just 10 games on the year. He flashed some tantalizing potential during a game against the Dallas Cowboys in October when he racked up 189 yards, but he wasn't very effective in any other games last season. He's an intriguing fantasy sleeper this year who comes with immense upside but a high amount of risk.

  • Sterling Shepard Begins Camp On PUP List

    The New York Giants placed wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Achilles) on the Physically Unable to Perform list on Tuesday. Shepard had a lost season in 2021, playing in just three games and tearing his Achilles in Week 15 after battling lower-body injuries for most of the year. The 29-year-old isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, making it likely that he'll be avoided in fantasy drafts that involve 12 teams. Once he's ready for action, he'll be involved in a competition for targets that includes Kenny Golladay, former first-rounder Kadarius Toney and rookie second-rounder Wan'Dale Robinson. Shepard has yet to have a 1,000-yard season in his six seasons with the Giants, and he's quickly becoming an injury liability. He hasn't played in a full season since 2018.

  • Giants Sign Nick Williams

    The New York Giants have signed defensive lineman Nick Williamson the day that they report for the start of training camp. The veteran was most recently with the Detroit Lions and started in 17 games for the team during the 2021 season. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Williams recorded 27 tackles (14 solo) with 0.5 sacks and two quarterback hits last season. To make room for the 32-year-old, the Giants released Jabari Ellis, who they signed as an undrafted free agent back in May.

  • Giants Work Out Eric Ebron

    The New York Giants worked out a group that included free-agent tight end Eric Ebron on Monday. The Giants lost both Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph this offseason, and promising rookie Daniel Bellinger (quadriceps) has begun training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, so New York could certainly use another body in the tight end room this summer. If the season were to start on Monday, veteran Ricky Seals-Jones would be the team's No. 1 option at the position, followed by Jordan Akins and Chris Myarick. Ebron, 29, played in only eight games in his second year with the Pittsburgh Steelers due to injury and finished with 12 catches on 18 targets for 84 yards and one touchdown.
