• Eli Manning - QB
    Posted 8/17/17 6:32pm ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning will play in the second and third preseason games, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

    Huddle Up: Manning sat out the first preseason game but should play at least a quarter in the second game and probably the first half in the third game. He will have a solid group of receivers to work with this season and can be considered a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks.

  • Paul Perkins - RB
    Posted 8/13/17 8:55am ET

    New York Giants RB Paul Perkins has not 'blown anyone away with his performance this summer,' according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan. He also drew criticism from head coach Ben McAdoo for his inability to get a first down on one of his few carries in the team's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 'He has to make (that safety) miss and he has to run him over. We have to at least get a first down on that play,' McAdoo said.

    Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa has reportedly split some first-team reps with Perkins recently, which is obviously not a good sign. Perkins' upside was already a bit limited given the Giants' desire to use a committee, but it was assumed he would have a fairly good grasp on early-down duties. The second-year back is little more than a fantasy RB4 and will probably remain that way in 2017.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/13/17 4:08pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) fully participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 13. Shepard may have a chance to play in the second preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Shepard probably will be the slot receiver for the Giants this season and should receive plenty of playing time this season. He recorded 683 yards and eight touchdowns last season and has a chance to improve on those stats. He can be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/7/17 6:09pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: Shepard missed a few days of practice because of the injury but appears to be fine. Shepard is expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Giants and could be used as a slot receiver. Owners should consider him a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 8/6/17 3:32pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram is listed as the second-team tight end on the team's first depth chart. TE Rhett Ellison is listed as the starter at tight end.

    Huddle Up: Engram will take over the starting job at some point and could open the season as the starter. Engram should receive a solid amount of targets this season since he will be a matchup problem for opposing defenses. Owners in standard leagues should consider Engram as a No. 2 tight end at this point, but he will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/4/17 7:13am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard's (ankle) MRI revealed a common sprained ankle, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Shepard should be ready for the season, but he'll be the third or fourth option on offense - depending on how quickly TE Evan Engram catches on. Shepard is a WR4 in fantasy.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/4/17 1:04pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) said he fully expects to be ready to play in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has been sidelined for a few days because of his ankle injury but should be return to the field before the end of the preseason. He should be a top-three receiver for the Giants this season and probably can be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/3/17 11:56am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is waiting for an MRI to hopefully confirm that he merely suffered a low-ankle sprain in practice Wednesday, Aug. 2.

    Huddle Up: Shepard's fantasy stock took a hit this offseason with the addition of Brandon Marshall, but he'll be a flex consideration or WR4 candidate if he is good to go for Week 1.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/2/17 8:37am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (undisclosed) was carted off Wednesday, Aug. 2, and appeared to be in serious pain.

    Huddle Up: It's too early to speculate, but Shepard was a WR5 with some upside if the injury isn't serious.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 8/2/17 10:25am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) suffered a 'basketball-type' sprained ankle in practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, and was carted off only as a precaution.

    Huddle Up: While not a serious injury per se, Shepard was reportedly in enough pain to leave the field in tears, so stay tuned for more updates as he is still undergoing tests. For now, the second-year receiver remains in WR5 consideration, although with much less touchdown upside than he had as a rookie.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 7/28/17 9:15pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. 'deserves to get paid,' owner John Mara said Friday, July 28. 'We're going to pay him,' Mara said. 'It's just a question of when we enter into the contract. And I don't have a timetable on it right now.'

    Huddle Up: Beckham's floor has been 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns after three seasons, so he is a first-round pick and high-end WR1 in any format.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 7/23/17 7:06pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is the only player in NFL history with at least 90 catches, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons.

    Huddle Up: Beckham is a first-round pick in any format and top-three option at his position.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR
    Posted 7/22/17 7:04pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard said he should be able to 'feast' inside this season with WR Odell Beckham Jr. and WR Brandon Marshall occupying defenses on the outside.

    Huddle Up: The addition of Marshall is going to take away some targets from Shepard, but the Giants throw the ball a lot. He was impressive as a rookie, especially in the red zone, and he will still have value as a WR5.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 6/30/17 7:12pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram could finish this season with 45 to 50 catches, according to John Schmeelk and Lance Medow of Giants.com.

    Huddle Up: The hype continues to build around Engram, and while he has the tools to be a matchup problem in the passing game, a loaded receiving corps will limit his upside. Draft him as a high-upside TE2.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 6/24/17 11:53am ET

    New York Giants team president John Mara said WR Odell Beckham Jr. could receive a contract extension in the near future but it is not a top priority for the Giants at this time. Mara said there is no timetable for Beckham's extension.

    Huddle Up: Beckham reportedly skipped most of the offseason workouts because of his contract situation but will be at training camp even if he does not have an extension. Beckham is one of the best receiver in the NFL and should be a first- or second-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

  • Eli Manning - QB
    Posted 6/22/17 10:48am ET

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has many years to play in the NFL, in the opinion of owner John Mara.

    Huddle Up: At 36 years old, Manning has posted three straight seasons of at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns. Longevity seems to be in the Manning gene pool -- brother Peyton played for 18 seasons and father Archie played for 16 seasons. As for Eli's fantasy value, he's a high-end QB2 with the ability to perform as a QB1 depending on the matchup.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 6/18/17 9:59am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. believes everything is starting to come together for him as he enters his fourth season. 'In every which way, I just feel it. ... Mentally, physically, spiritually, everything, I just don't think I've ever been as ready as I am now,' Beckham said.

    Huddle Up: It's a scary thought for NFL defenses for a player who has averaged 96 catches for 1,374 yards and 12 touchdowns over his first three seasons. In reality, OBJ's numbers should take a slight hit in 2017 with the addition of Brandon Marshall and first-round tight end Evan Engram as well as the continued improvement of second-year wideout Sterling Shepard. Nevertheless, Beckham remains in strong consideration for a top- five pick in fantasy drafts this summer.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 6/16/17 7:44am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants TE Evan Engram's four-year deal is worth $10.7 million with a $5.9 million signing bonus. All first-round picks receive an option for a fifth year.

    Huddle Up: Engram has wowed with his speed, and the hype in fantasy circles is building. He may start going off the board in the midrange TE1 area.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 6/15/17 1:41pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, June 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Engram joins a crowded pass-catching corps in New York. He'll be targeted behind the likes of Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard, but his size, athleticism and playmaking ability will demand some targets. Still, Engram is outside of TE1 territory in his first year.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 6/14/17 7:19am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is catching everything thrown at him in practice, and he caught two touchdowns in team drills Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Shepard will be relegated to the third receiver spot, which limits his fantasy prowess. He's still on the WR5 landscape, though.

  • Orleans Darkwa - RB
    Posted 6/14/17 7:18am ET

    New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa worked extensively with the first-team offense Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa is behind Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen on the depth chart, but he could carve at least a modest role. He's on the RB5 horizon.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 6/14/17 11:15am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 14, because of soreness, according to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan.

    Huddle Up: Engram was the team's first round pick and should be involved in the passing game right away. He will be a matchup problem for opposing defenses during his rookie season but probably should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this time.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 6/12/17 5:30am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted on Instagram that he has reported for organized team activities Monday, June 12.

    Huddle Up: OBJ is one of the best receivers in fantasy and should be a consideration to come off the board during the first few picks in your fantasy draft.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 6/10/17 8:03pm ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram is generating excitement with his performance at OTAs, according to head coach Ben McAdoo, and the Giants have been using more sets that feature two tight ends.

    Huddle Up: Engram will probably be the fourth option in the passing game, but the Giants throw a lot, and he could be a matchup problem over the middle. If you are drafting a TE2, Engram is worth a look.

  • Shane Vereen - RB
    Posted 6/9/17 11:21am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is taking a slower approach this offseason after he admitted returning prematurely from a torn triceps last year.

    Huddle Up: Vereen will likely be playing behind Paul Perkins and splitting time with Wayne Gallman, among others. He should be mostly used in passing-down situations and thus has more value in PPR leagues as a late-round option.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 6/9/17 12:58pm ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to attend next week's mandatory minicamp, according to head coach Ben McAdoo. Beckham did not participate in organized team activities, which were voluntary.

    Huddle Up: Beckham is due for a massive contract after three season of elite play in the NFL. Minicamp or no minicamp, Beckham is a sure-fire first-round fantasy pick again this season.

  • Odell Beckham Jr. - WR
    Posted 6/7/17 5:37am ET

    New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s absence at organized activities, though no one in his camp has admitted it, is directly related to his desire for a new contract, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: OBJ is one of the best receivers in fantasy and should be a consideration to come off the board during the first few picks in your fantasy draft.

  • Paul Perkins - RB
    Posted 6/7/17 4:23pm ET

    New York Giants RB Paul Perkins has the skills to become a three-down running back, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson.

    Huddle Up: Perkins is considered the leading candidate for the starting running back and could be on the field for most of the snaps if he shows he can be a receiver out of the backfield and be a pass blocker. Owners probably should consider Perkins as a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Sterling Shepard - WR
    Posted 5/29/17 2:13pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard believes he needs to improve after the catch this year. 'I feel like I could have gotten a lot more [yards after catch] last year,' Shepard said. 'That's something that I looked at on film and I want to get better on.' The second-year receiver believes he's ready for an upgrade in his game. 'You make a big jump from your sophomore year, and then college the same way,' Shepard said. Shepard added that he'll be a lot more comfortable adjusting to the speed of the NFL, running routes and the Giants' system.

    Huddle Up: Shepard may improve, but he'll have Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall to compete with in New York. Shepard figures to be the Giants' primary slot receiver with those two on the outside. Even with the stellar company, Shepard remains a good red-zone threat after catching eight touchdowns his rookie year. As such, WR3 or flex status is ideal for Shepard.

  • Evan Engram - TE
    Posted 5/26/17 7:25am ET

    New York Giants TE Evan Engram lined up everywhere in practice Thursday, May 25. He was in-line, in the slot, out wide and in motion like an H-back during team drills.

    Huddle Up: The Giants have a history of reliance on the tight end and haven't had one since Larry Donnell's lone big season in 2014. Engram is one to watch and worth taking as an upside TE2.
