  • Daniel Jones Progressing Post-Surgery; First-Round QB Pick On Radar

    Headshot for Tommy DeVito

    Of the teams lurking outside the top three who have been connected to a quarterback upgrade attempt, the Giants sit in the best spot. They hold the No. 6 overall pick, the same slot they were in when Daniel Jones became the Eli Manning heir apparent in 2019. Five years later, Jones’ status creates a […]

    Daniel Jones‘ ACL tear derailed the Giants’ 2023 quarterback plans. New York finished the campaign with a combination of Tyrod Taylor and Tommy DeVito under center, but the team also eyed a reunion with a familiar face. Broncos head coach Sean Payton revealed during a recent appearance on the Up & Adams show that the Giants attempted to bring back […]

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Leads Giants In Receiving In Week 18

    Headshot for Wan'Dale Robinson

    New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson caught five passes for 85 yards in the team's 27-10 upset victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Robinson led the team in both categories. It was also his season-high mark for receiving yards. With Tyrod Taylor under center for these final three games, the New York passing game finally had a pulse. Robinson and Darius Slayton were the biggest beneficiaries. The second-year slot receiver finishes the 2023 campaign with 60 catches for 525 yards, nine carries for 87 yards, and two touchdowns.

  • Tyrod Taylor Throws For Nearly 300 Yards In Season Finale

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (thumb) completed 23 passes for 297 yards and one touchdown while adding 38 yards on the ground. He also tossed one interception in an upset victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Taylor missed one series in the first quarter because of a thumb injury but was able to return and torch the Philadelphia secondary. Taylor would have likely topped the 300-yard mark for the second straight week without missed plays. The veteran took advantage of weak defenses in his starts to end the 2023 season and will likely be one of the more stable backup quarterbacks in the NFL again in 2024.

  • Tyrod Taylor Returns Versus Eagles

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (thumb) has returned to Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He had been listed as questionable after suffering an injury to the thumb on his throwing hand. The veteran signal-caller was temporarily replaced by rookie Tommy Devito but didn't miss too much time. Evidently, Taylor and the Giants' medical staff felt confident that he could return to the game without a serious risk of re-injury. It's also worth noting that DeVito was seen limping off the field, though it's unclear if his apparent lower-body injury is anything serious.

  • Tyrod Taylor Injured Sunday, Replaced By Tommy DeVito

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (thumb) exited during the first half of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles and is officially questionable to return. He was replaced by rookie Tommy Devito, who returns under center after totaling 1,087 passing yards, nine total touchdowns, and three interceptions from Weeks 8 through 16. At this point, it's too early to tell whether Taylor will be able to return, but it's worth noting that the injury was to the thumb on his throwing hand. Therefore, if he does re-enter the contest, he'll likely have to play through pain.

  • Tyrod Taylor Draws Another Shaky Secondary In Week 18

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (back) is off of the injury report for Week 18, logging limited practices throughout the week. The veteran picks up his second consecutive start and fifth overall this season. In three of those starts, he's drawn some of the weakest secondaries in the NFL (Washington, Los Angeles, and now Philadelphia). In one half of action two weeks ago against the Eagles, Taylor threw for 133 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, which came on the final play of the game. He's also connected with Darius Slayton on long touchdowns in back-to-back games. Taylor is an interesting QB2 option in fantasy football and the matchup makes him a strong candidate for DFS lineups.

  • Tyrod Taylor Stays Limited In Practice

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (back) was limited in the team's practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. It was announced earlier this week that Taylor would make his second straight start for the G-Men to close out the year in Week 18 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. We fully expect Taylor to be fine to play this weekend, but in the event the Giants play it safe and hold the veteran out, it would be rookie Tommy Devito making the start instead. For those feeling frisky in DFS, the 34-year-old Taylor could be a worthwhile, low-cost play while facing an Eagles defense that has been very generous to opposing QBs all year. On top of it, the Eagles could be resting key veterans on both sides of the ball this weekend with an eye toward getting healthier for the postseason. Taylor threw for over 300 yards with a TD and a pick in the one-point loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17.

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's team practice. Earlier on Wednesday, Giants head coach Brian Daboll named Taylor the official starter for Week 18 against the Philadelphia Eagles, so the back issue doesn't appear to be a serious injury. The veteran quarterback will have two more chances to upgrade his practice status before facing a pass-friendly Eagles defense. Philadelphia has allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, making Taylor an interesting DFS play this weekend.

  • Tyrod Taylor To Start Season Finale

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor will start the team's Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday versus the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles. The G-Men have nothing left to play for but pride in a game in which the Eagles could be resting key starters. The 34-year-old veteran signal-caller took over for the ineffective rookie Tommy Devito in last week's one-point loss to the Los Angeles Rams and went 27-for-41 for a season-high 319 yards, one touchdown and an interception while also fumbling. In a game against a vulnerable Eagles secondary that could be resting starters, Taylor could be a decent QB2 streaming option for fantasy managers in superflex leagues that are still competing for a championship in Week 18.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Scores On The Ground In Week 17

    New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson scored his second touchdown of the 2023 campaign, and the first to come on the ground, in the team's 26-25 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The touchdown came from 24 yards out. The slot receiver also added six catches for 55 yards. While not his best yardage total of the season, this was the best fantasy football day for Robinson (PPR formats). The offense as a whole ran a lot smoother with veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor under center. Robinson and the rest of the Giants host the Philadelphia Eagles in next week's season finale.

  • Tyrod Taylor Throws For Over 300 Yards In Narrow Loss

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw for 319 yards and a touchdown while adding 40 rushing yards in the team's 26-25 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He also tossed one interception. The veteran quarterback connected with Darius Slayton on an 80-yard touchdown in the third quarter for his score and scrambled 31 yards on the Giants' final drive to set up a potential game-winning field goal, which came up short. Taylor made the plays to win and ultimately delivered for the fantasy managers desperate enough to turn to him in Week 17. Taylor will be a low-end QB2 once again as the Giants host the Eagles in next week's season finale.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Active For Week 17

    Headshot for Wan'Dale Robinson

    New York Giants wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson (quadriceps) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams despite being listed as questionable. He appeared in all three practices this week, but his involvement was limited on Wednesday and Friday. Nevertheless, the 22-year-old will suit up after commanding 23 targets over his last four games. He looks to maintain a solid workload with Tyrod Taylor under center against a Rams defense surrendering 12 catches and 167 yards per game to opposing wide receiver rooms. Robinson ranks as a WR4 in fantasy leagues this week.

  • Tyrod Taylor A Low-End QB2 In Return To Starting Role

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor returns to the starting lineup in Week 17, replacing ineffective rookie Tommy Devito. The Giants coaching staff opted to turn to the veteran halfway through last week's game and saw enough to name him the starter once again. It will be Taylor's first start since Week 8. While the matchup with the Rams is one to take advantage of (the defense is allowing the most fantasy points to quarterbacks over the last four weeks), Taylor can't be trusted in the fantasy playoffs. The Giants lack explosive weapons on the outside and are the second-lowest scoring team in the NFL. Taylor is a shaky option in 2QB and Superflex formats and should be avoided altogether in single-QB leagues.

  • Tyrod Taylor Named Starter For Giants Against Rams

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    The New York Giants are starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor for the Week 17 game against the Los Angeles Rams. After completing 63.6% of his passes for 1,087 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions in eight games, rookie Tommy Devito will head back to the bench. Taylor took over for DeVito in last week's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and threw for 133 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. The Rams have been a favorable matchup for fantasy quarterbacks, but there's no reason to roll out Taylor in single-QB formats.

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor stepped in for Tommy Devito halfway through the team's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, sparking what had been an inept offense in the first half. A lot of the offense consisted of handing off to running back Saquon Barkley, but Taylor did connect with Darius Slayton for a 69-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. His interception came on the final play of the game as he attempted to lead a game-tying drive. Coach Brian Daboll has not named a starter for next week when the Giants host the Los Angeles Rams.

  • Giants Activate Tyrod Taylor From Injured Reserve

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    The New York Giants activated quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) from Injured Reserve on Monday, although rookie Tommy Devito will make the start on Monday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers. It's possible that the Giants consider Taylor for a start in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints if DeVito lays an egg on Monday on what will be just his fourth NFL start. Daniel Jones (knee) is done for the rest of the year, so it will be either DeVito or Taylor under center for the G-Men for the final four games in 2023. The 34-year-old Taylor went 1-2 in his three starts for New York before going on IR, going 46-for-72 for 487 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in those three starts. Neither DeVito nor Taylor should be considered anything more than a desperation QB2 option in fantasy leagues that start two quarterbacks.

  • Tyrod Taylor Gets In Another Practice

    Headshot for Tyrod Taylor

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) practiced on Friday. It was his second consecutive full session, so it appears he's trending in a favorable direction toward a return after missing his last four contests. That said, although Taylor has a chance to get cleared for Monday's encounter with the Green Bay Packers, Tommy Devito will remain the starting quarterback. But DeVito has struggled at times since taking over, meaning Taylor could be back under center, potentially sometime in the next few games. However, the Giants offense hasn't looked great all year, making any signal-caller on the roster hard to trust in any fantasy format.

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's estimated practice report. The Giants designated Taylor to return from Injured Reserve earlier this week, opening up a 21-day window for him to officially be activated from IR. The G-Men are going to stick with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito as their starter for at least another game on Monday night against the Green Bay Packers, but it doesn't mean that Taylor won't be active as the backup for that one. The 34-year-old veteran signal-caller went 46-for-72 for 487 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in three starts from Weeks 6-8 before injuring his ribs and landing on Injured Reserve. It's entirely possible that Taylor could start as soon as Week 15 if DeVito struggles against Green Bay.

    New York Giants quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ribs) was designated for return from the injured reserve list on Monday but will not start in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers. Giants head coach Brian Daboll announced on Tuesday that Tommy Devito will be the team's starting quarterback this week. Taylor was New York's starter for three games this season but injured his ribs early in Week 8, which landed him on the injured reserve list. In two full starts this year, the veteran quarterback totaled 479 pass yards and two touchdowns. If he's active in Week 14, he should serve as DeVito's backup on Monday night.
