Giants Defense Fails to Step Up

The New York Giants Defense failed to step up in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets. Despite the Jets' offensive line being prone to giving up sacks, the Giants were only able to get to Sam Darnold twice and also forced zero turnovers. They only let up 294 yards on the day, but it was... Read More

Aldrick Rosas A Non-Factor

New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was a non-factor again on Sunday. The Giants scored 27 points, but Rosas attempted no field goals and missed one of his two extra points. He's simply not worth a roster spot.

Rhett Ellison Posts Modest Outing

New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison did little in his start on Sunday, catching all three of his targets for 42 yards. With the Giants on a bye next week, Evan Engram has claimed that he will try and come back for the team's next game against the Bears. If so, it will have... Read More

Golden Tate Picks Up Slack For Giants

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate did his best to make up for the team's missing pieces by hauling in four passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. Tate's eight targets were second on the team, and he beat the Jets a few times with solid yards after the catch. The veteran... Read More

Darius Slayton Explodes Versus Jets

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton erupted for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 10 catches in Sunday's loss to the Jets. With Evan Engram (foot) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) sidelined, the rookie took advantage and led the charge for the Giants. Slayton has been winning on the deep ball this year, but he...

Saquon Barkley Was Disastrous On Sunday

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley fell on his face Sunday in a loss to the Jets. The second-year pro had just one yard on 13 carries and added 30 yards on five catches. There's not really much to say about this other than that Barkley just doesn't seem right since returning from his... Read More

Daniel Jones Dynamic In Loss To Jets

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was tremendous through the air for the Giants in Sunday's loss. He completed 26 of 40 passes for 308 yards and four touchdowns, shredding through the Jets secondary and making clutch throws into tight windows. However, he also fumbled the ball three times, including one in which Jamal Adams... Read More

Aldrick Rosas Not A Fantasy Option

New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas remains off the fantasy radar despite his big week against the Cowboys in Week 9. The Cowboys game was the first time Rosas had made more than one field goal in any game this year, and he came into the game with only six field goals in eight total... Read More

Giants Defense Is An Intriguing Streamer Versus Jets

The New York Giants Defense might have finally found an offense it can take advantage of. They didn't have to look too far either. The Giants will face a Jets offense on Sunday that allows a league-worst 4.6 sacks per game, while their quarterback, Sam Darnold, has thrown nine interceptions against only six touchdowns. With...

Rhett Ellison On Deep League Streaming Radar

New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison finds himself back in the fantasy conversation with Evan Engram set to miss at least this week due to a foot injury. On the surface, the matchup doesn't appear to be favorable since Ellison only has 125 yards receiving on the season and the Jets allow the fourth-fewest... Read More

Darius Slayton Gets Good Matchup On Sunday

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is in a good spot on Sunday with both Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot) expected to miss the game versus the Jets. The Jets gave up 38 points to Jacksonville wide receivers in Week 8 and 36 points to the Dolphins' receivers in Week 9. They... Read More

Golden Tate In A Blow-Up Spot on Sunday

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate finds himself in a prime spot to go off on Sunday against the Jets. With Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot) expected to miss the game, Tate will likely be Daniel Jones' top option against a Jets Defense that ranks 28th against slot receivers, which is where...

Giants To Ride Saquon Barkley Versus Jets

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley figures to play an even larger role in the Giants' attack this Sunday with injuries to Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot). The Jets' offensive struggles will likely keep the game close, so Barkley should be active early and often on the ground, and his eight catches... Read More

Daniel Jones Is A Risky Streamer Versus Jets

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is a popular streamer this week when he goes "on the road" to take on the New York Jets. However, Jones may not be in as good of a spot as initially thought. With Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot) both likely out for the game, Jones will... Read More

Evan Engram Not At Practice

New York Giants tight end Evan Engram (foot) missed practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Ever since returning from his MCL injury, Engram hasn't been as dynamic, so it's possible that he's been dealing with multiple injuries. Missing a Wednesday practice isn't the end of the world, so we can't make assumptions about how serious... Read More

Bennie Fowler Makes An Appearance On Monday Night

New York Giants wide receiver Bennie Fowler caught three passes for 22 yards on Monday night. Almost all of this was in garbage time, so there’s nothing much to read into this. He’s not rosterable in any size league.

Giants Defense Eventually Breaks Versus Cowboys

The New York Giants played the Cowboys tight for much of the game on Monday. Despite giving up 5.7 yards per carry, they had picked Dak Prescott off and not given up any big plays until midway through the third quarter. At that point, the Giants’ lack of pass rush against the Cowboys elite offensive... Read More

Aldrick Rosas Leads The Giants In Scoring On Monday

New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was the beneficiary of the Giants’ conservative playcalling on Monday night. The former Pro Bowler made all four of his field goal attempts, but none of them were from longer than 29 yards. The Giants inexplicably refused to take shots in the end zone despite coming into the game... Read More

Darius Slayton Goes M.I.A. On Monday Night

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton let down fantasy owners on Monday with only one catch for six yards. With Sterling Shepard (concussion) out, it was assumed that Slayton would operate as the team’s deep threat. The only problem is that the Giants refused to challenge the Cowboys deep. If Shepard continues to miss time,... Read More

Cody Latimer Catches Touchdown In Loss

New York Giants wide receiver Cody Latimer found the end zone on Monday night after he was left wide open for a one-yard touchdown catch in the first half. However, he finished the night with only eight yards on two catches. Latimer is not an option in any size league right now. This was simply... Read More

Golden Tate Quiet On Monday Night

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate was another Giant with a quiet performance on Monday night. With Sterling Shepard (concussion) out, many people assumed Tate would be a feature in the Giants offense. Instead, he saw only six targets, catching all six of them for 42 yards, while adding 16 yards on one carry.... Read More

Evan Engram Has Another Slow Game

New York Giants tight end Evan Engram was silent again on Monday. Ever since Engram has come back from his MCL injury, he just hasn’t been as productive. He finished the loss to Dallas with six catches for 48 yards on eight targets. Much of his lack of high-end success can be attributed to Daniel... Read More

Saquon Barkley Barely Avoids Career-Worst Game

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley disappointed for the second straight week. After a subpar game against the Lions, apart from one phenomenal run, Barkley ended Monday night’s game with 28 yards rushing on two yards per carry while adding 67 yards on six catches, most of which came when the game was out...

Daniel Jones Underwhelms In Primetime

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was the victim of his team’s conservative play-calling on Monday night. Despite being in advantageous situations multiple times, Jones and the Giants turned to short passes and seemed unwilling to take shots down the field. As a result, the rookie totaled 5.1 yards per completion en route to 210... Read More

Darius Slayton Is A Low-Floor Dart Throw

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton becomes a less attractive option this week with Sterling Shepard likely returning from a concussion. The Cowboys allow the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, and Slayton will now be competing with Shepard, Evan Engram, Saquon Barkley, and Golden Tate for touches. It's not a recipe for success... Read More

Aldrick Rosas Not On Fantasy Radar

New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas should not be in fantasy lineups this week. The Cowboys have only allowed 11 field goals all year, and Rosas doesn't have a multiple field goal game yet in 2019. He shouldn't be in consideration for any season-long leagues.

Giants Defense Should Be Avoided

The New York Giants Defense is one to avoid on Monday when they take on a Cowboys team that hung 35 points on them during the first week of the season. The Giants have been generating more pressure on the quarterback in recent weeks, but the Cowboys have an elite offensive line and the receivers... Read More

Evan Engram Could Be The Key For The Giants On Monday

New York Giants tight end Evan Engram finds himself in another tough spot against the Cowboys on Monday. Engram has been a disappointment since returning from his MCL injury and now gets more competition for targets with Sterling Shepard back from his concussion. However, now three weeks removed from injuring his MCL, it's possible that... Read More
