Paul Perkins - RBPosted 10/20/17 8:12am ET
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (ribs) is out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa took control of the backfield last week with 21 carries for 117 yards against the best defense against RBs in the league this season. The Seattle Seahawks have been good as well, but Darkwa makes a solid flex choice.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/20/17 8:15am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Shepard is facing the Legion of Boom this week, and the Giants really scaled back their aerial attack last week in a surprising win over the Denver Broncos. You could see them mimicking that approach this week. Shepard could be limited, and Evan Engram might be the only receiving option to use this week.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/20/17 4:58pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is expected to participate in pregame workouts before the team's Week 7 game to determine if he will be active for the game.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Shepard will be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks. He will be the No. 1 receiver for the Giants when he returns to the lineup. Shepard is a risky option this week because of the injury and the matchup, but he can still be at least a flex option if he plays.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/19/17 9:33am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is practicing Thursday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Shepard has the inglorious matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this week, and he's really only a desperation bye-week filler this week. He'll be a top option in the decimated offense.
Mike Sullivan - OCPosted 10/19/17 8:00pm ET
New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said they revamped the run game to use more traps, quick dives and outside zone prior to their Week 6 game when the Giants rushed 32 times for 148 yards against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa rushed for 117 yards against Denver, but it remains to be seen if his performance and the performance of the Giants' running game in general was a fluke. Darkwa is worth stashing, but he is too risky to start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/18/17 5:29pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) said he expects to be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7 after being able to run some routes and makes some cuts during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Shepard will be the No. 1 receiver when he returns to the lineup and should receive a solid amount of targets. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks secondary but can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most leagues.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 10/16/17 4:55am ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa gained 117 yards on 21 carries in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Where did this come from? That's the question many fantasy owners probably ask Monday morning. It's tempting to pick up Darkwa, considering the Broncos only gave up over 50 yards rushing a game prior to this. However, one performance does not make a player. See if Darkwa can do this more often before you take a flyer.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/16/17 5:05am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught five of his seven targeted passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Conventional wisdom had Engram struggling in this game, but instead he broke through for a strong performance. Considering the plight of the Giants receiving corps, Engram may be a decent low-end TE1 or high-end TE2, depending on the matchups.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/15/17 7:10am ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) said he is not considering retirement and plans to play in 2018.
Huddle Up: Marshall will be under contract with the Giants next season but it is not known if he will remain with the team. He can be a No. 3 receiver for a team in 2018 but may be a No. 4 fantasy receiver in some leagues next year.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/13/17 7:31am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Roger Lewis will be the top option at receiver in what is a midrange matchup against the Denver Broncos. He's a flex option in Week 6.
Paul Perkins - RBPosted 10/13/17 7:29am ET
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Wayne Gallman has a rough matchup against the Denver Broncos, which limits any upside his increased usage would bring. He's a risky flex play this week.
Paul Perkins - RBPosted 10/12/17 9:11am ET
New York Giants RB Paul Perkins (ribs) remains out of practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: Wayne Gallman had an 11-57-0 rushing line and a 5-25-0 receiving line last week. He'll be a flex option in a rough matchup against the Denver Broncos if Perkins can't go.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/12/17 9:10am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 12.
Huddle Up: It's looking like he'll be a no-go in Week 6, but he could surface Friday. Roger Lewis appears to be the team's top receiver against the Denver Broncos. It's hard to slot him in as your flex when there are other established options. However, if you're hurting due to bye weeks, he could see a lot of targets.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 10/11/17 7:46pm ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (calf) is not on the team's injury report for their Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 15, versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: This means Darkwa should be able to suit up after hurting his calf this past Sunday, but he'll be in a matchup that no owner should want any part of. The Broncos have the league's best rush defense, and with Wayne Gallman likely lined up for the majority of work, that makes Darkwa a tough start in any league. He only deserves consideration in the deepest of formats.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/10/17 2:10pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (foot) is wearing a walking boot on his injured left foot to protect the same ankle he sprained in training camp. Shepard is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: New York's wide receiver corps is an absolute disaster. Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall are both out for the season and Shepard is dealing with his own injury. Shepard will be Eli Manning's primary target upon his return and is the only Giants' receiver worth starting when he is healthy.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/10/17 3:37pm ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: As was stated earlier, the Giants' receiving corps is as unenviable as they come in its current state. The bottom line is that anyone not named Sterling Shepard, who may miss this week, should not be started against the vaunted Denver Broncos defense.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/9/17 11:06am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and is day-to-day.
Huddle Up: The Giants lost four receivers in all during Week 5, including Odell Beckham Jr. likely for the season. Shepard will likely be asked to play the lead role for New York in his absence, especially if Brandon Marshall's ankle injury turns out to be a multi-week injury. As a result of Beckham's absence, Shepard is probably no worse than a WR3 now, although he should be benched against the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/9/17 10:53am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will have surgery on his fractured ankle this week, although the team has yet to announce an exact date. The Giants also have yet to say whether or not Beckham will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Beckham will almost certainly be placed on the Reserve/Injured list at the very least, which will cause him to miss the next eight weeks - a move which would put him out until Week 14 - so he can probably be dropped in all leagues without an IR spot. Of all the Giants' receivers to get injured in Week 5, Sterling Shepard's ankle appears to be the least serious. There's a good chance he and Roger Lewis Jr. will be starting in Week 6 in a dreadful matchup against the Denver Broncos.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/9/17 11:18am ET
Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) will miss the rest of the season with a fractured ankle, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.
Huddle Up: Beckham is expected to make a full recovery. While McAdoo did not provide a timeline during his conference call, the receiver should be ready for the start of training camp next season, if not offseason workouts. Sterling Shepard will probably take over the lead role in the New York passing attack, while Evan Engram and Roger Lewis Jr. could be asked to take on larger roles assuming Brandon Marshall's ankle injury results in a multi-week absence. Beckham is obviously safe to drop in all redraft leagues.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/9/17 1:10pm ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is expected to miss multiple games because of the ankle injury he suffered in Week 5.
Huddle Up: The Giants probably will have more on Marshall's injury in the near future but it appears like he will miss at least one week. Sterling Shepard likely will be the team's top receiver if he is healthy and may be the only Giants receiver with fantasy value.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/9/17 8:56pm ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) announced that he will undergo season-ending surgery on his left ankle Tuesday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Initially, it was suspected that Marshall would only miss a few games at most, but given the Giants' horrific luck in Week 5, maybe this isn't such a surprise after all. It ends a nightmarish first season with Big Blue for the 33-year-old, as he had just 18 catches for 154 yards before going down for the year. Roger Lewis looks like a solid addition in most leagues now as a result, being in line to take over the No. 2 wide receiver duties by default.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 10/8/17 8:54am ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa will be the starting running back against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Darkwa has been named the starter for this week but will be sharing work with Wayne Gallman and Shane Vereen during the game. Darkwa could be considered a flex option in deeper leagues but owners should not expect a big performance from him.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 10/8/17 11:47am ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) and WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) suffered ankle injuries in Week 5 and are considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Marshall or Shepard will be able to return to the game. The Giants should update their statuses after the game if they do not play again. Roger Lewis and Dwayne Harris are the only other receivers on the roster and are not great fantasy options.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/8/17 1:12pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (leg) suffered an apparent lower right leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Beckham was crying and in obvious pain before being helped onto the cart. He was taken to the locker room. When we know further details we'll pass them along. Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard were also injured earlier in the game, so tough day for Big Blue.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 10/8/17 2:22pm ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (calf) suffered a calf injury on his touchdown run in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Darkwa is a fan favorite, and he does some impressive things to make him attractive from a fantasy perspective. However, he has been banged up with a back injury, and now this calf issue. He is only worth fantasy attention in deeper formats at this point.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/8/17 2:16pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (leg) suffered a broken left fibula in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, sources said Sunday, Oct. 8. It's uncertain if there is any ligament damage, and the receiver will have an MRI on Monday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Plenty of big-name fantasy players have gone down to injury, and Beckham joins the unfortunate list. It sounds like the type of injury which would end his season, but we'll wait for official word from the team before making that determination. The Giants also lost Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris to injuries. Evan Engram and Roger Lewis might be the players to target off the waiver wire heading into Week 6.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/8/17 5:08pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram went without a catch in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers on four targets.
Huddle Up: Eli Manning did look his way, but the duo could not hook up. The rookie had at least four grabs and at least 44 yards in each of his first four outings, so this was a huge disappointment. He'll have a hard time bouncing back in Week 6 on the road against a tough Denver Broncos defense.
Roger Lewis - WRPosted 10/8/17 5:07pm ET
New York Giants WR Roger Lewis posted a 29-yard touchdown on his only catch in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers on two targets.
Huddle Up: Lewis is certain to see a lot more targets in the coming weeks with Odell Beckham suffering a serious ankle injury, while the team also saw Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris exit with ailments. Lewis could very well see himself in a starting role depending on the severity of injuries to the others.
Wayne Gallman - RBPosted 10/8/17 5:07pm ET
New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman rushed 11 times for 57 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added five receptions for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: It appears the Giants might have jump-started the run game, as Orleans Darkwa and Gallman each ran the ball with authority while Paul Perkins was inactive. Gallman is worth grabbing off the waiver wire in all leagues, but temper expectations heading into Week 6 on the road against the Broncos.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/8/17 5:04pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 21 of his 36 pass attempts for 225 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Manning was sacked five times, and he wasn't helped out by the fact he lost four receivers to injury during this game, including Odell Beckham Jr. to a serious injury late. He should be reserved in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 6 in Denver, as it would be a tough matchup for Eli even with a full cadre of receivers.
