  • Kenny Golladay, Richie James Absent Wednesday

    New York Giants wide receivers Kenny Golladay (knee) and Richie James (ankle) and backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday. Golladay will likely miss the Week 5 contest in London against the Green Bay Packers after suffering a sprained MCL in last week's win over the Chicago Bears. The 28-year-old has been an afterthought in New York's offense through four weeks, catching just two of six targets for 22 yards. He doesn't belong on fantasy rosters outside of the deepest of formats. James played a season-low 32 percent of the snaps last Sunday and caught one of three targets for just nine yards. The 27-year-old is in danger of missing this weekend's game and isn't much of an option for fantasy lineups to begin with, especially if one or both of Kadarius Toney and rookie Wan'Dale Robinson return in Week 5.

  • Richie James Could Be Busy In Week 4 Against Bears

    New York Giants wide receiver Richie James could be busy in Week 4 versus the Chicago Bears. At the beginning of the season, it wasn't expected for the veteran wideout to have a decent-sized role in the offense with Sterling Shepard, Kadarius Toney, Wan'Dale Robinson, and Kenny Golladay slated to be ahead of him on the depth chart. However, with injuries to Shepard, Toney, and Robinson, along with Golladay's future uncertain in New York, James has carved out a starting role on the Giants. In the first three weeks, the former seventh-round pick hasn't seen fewer than five targets in each game and he could have an expanded workload in Week 4.

  • Richie James Records 36 Receiving Yards In Week 3 Loss

    New York Giants wide receiver Richie James recorded four receptions for 36 yards on five targets in the Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. With the current wide receiver situation on the Giants, the former seventh-round pick has been one of the most consistent options for Daniel Jones to target. In the first three weeks, James has hauled in 14 of his 17 targets for 146 yards. The veteran wideout has also added six rushing yards on two carries to begin the season. It remains to be seen what the 27-year-old wide receiver's role will look like once Kadarius Toney and Wan'Dale Robinson are fully healthy. Given the lack of a ceiling for James, he's not a very enticing wideout to target in fantasy football.

  • Richie James Isn't Worth Starting In Week 3

    New York Giants wide receiver Richie James isn't worth starting in fantasy football this week in a matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Amid the issues the Giants have experienced at the wide receiver position this season, the experienced wideout has done a solid job making the most of his opportunities. In the first two weeks of the season, James has hauled in 10 passes for 110 yards on 12 targets. His 12 targets thus far are the second-most on the team, only behind Sterling Shepard. The defense of the Cowboys has been stout to begin the season and unless you're extremely desperate at wide receiver, James shouldn't be on your radar right now.

  • Richie James Leads Giants With 51 Receiving Yards In Week 2

    New York Giants wide receiver Richie James led the team in receiving with five receptions for 51 yards in the Week 2 win over the Carolina Panthers. The former seventh-round pick was heavily involved in the aerial attack in Week 1 and he maintained that role in Week 2 versus the Panthers. The Giants have been using a multitude of wide receivers with Wan'Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney dealing with injuries, along with Kenny Golladay struggling to adjust to the new offense. If James puts together another solid outing in Week 3, he may need to be considered in deeper leagues, though, it remains to be seen if Robinson or Toney see expanded roles when they are fully healthy.

  • Richie James Jr. Catches Touchdown In Preseason Opener

    New York Giants wide receiverRichie JamesJr. corralled three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 23-21 preseason win over the New England Patriots. The Giants were withoutKadarius ToneyandWan'Dale Robinson in Thursday's preseason opener, leaving more opportunities for the other wideouts on the roster. James was among the wide receivers to take advantage of more playing time. The 26-year-old was second in the receiving yards and caught a seven-yard touchdown strike from Tyrod Taylor in the second quarter. He is currently buried deep on New York's depth chart, with Kenny Golladay, Toney, Robinson,Darius Slayton, andCollin Johnsonseemingly ahead of him. If Slayton or Johnson were to be released or traded, there could be an opportunity for James to see the field on offense. But unless any roster moves happen, it's hard to imagine a scenario where James is worth rostering in fantasy football this season.
