Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/20/18 10:31am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Engram ready to play this week after missing several games because of his injury. He should be a popular target in the passing game this week and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all leagues.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/19/18 12:43pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Engram appears to be on track to play in Week 7 and should have a good role in the passing game against the Atlanta Falcons. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/18/18 12:32pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Engram's status in the next few days, but he appears to have a decent chance to play. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he is able to play.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 10/18/18 7:29pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley is 'just scratching the surface of his talent,' according to QB Eli Manning.
Huddle Up: Barkley has been one of the few bright spot for the 1-5 Giants, and he is on pace for more than 2,000 total yards and more than 100 catches. As crazy as it sounds, his numbers could actually improve if the passing attack can ever find a rhythm.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/16/18 9:03am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. drew a rebuke Tuesday, Oct. 16, from team co-owner John Mara, who said 'I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking.'
Huddle Up: OBJ's fantasy owners would like to see more out of the wideout as well as he's fourth in targets (69) and receptions (45) but is tied for 23rd in total fantasy points after six games. Still even with the slow start and the struggles of QB Eli Manning, Beckham projects as a sold WR1 going forward, so don't panic and give him away for too little in a trade.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/16/18 9:20am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was the subject of a question posed Tuesday, Oct. 16, to team owner John Mara at the league's fall meetings. 'When you're 1-5, it generally means everybody has to play better,' Mara told NFL Network. Mara added, though, that he will leave it up to the team's coaches as to whether a quarterback change is needed.
Huddle Up: With six TD passes, four interceptions and two fumbles so far, Eli ranks 23rd among fantasy QBs, and it's also affecting the rest of the skill players, most notably outspoken WR Odell Beckham Jr. The team's lingering pass-protection issues up front certainly haven't helped, but if the offensive and won-loss struggles continue, don't be surprised if rookie Kyle Lauletta gets a shot under center.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/16/18 10:30am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) is practicing Tuesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: This is a great sign with the team having an extra day and playing on Monday Night Football. Engram is a midrange TE1 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/12/18 5:19am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (dehydration) went to the locker room before halftime Thursday, Oct. 11, to receive intravenous fluids.
Huddle Up: It could help explain his slow night, but he has underwhelmed in the offense this season. It might be time to start sending out feelers on the trade market because he carries enough name value that you could still get a sizable return.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/12/18 10:22am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will remain the team's starter, head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 12. 'We believe in Eli,' Shurmur said.
Huddle Up: Manning had been OK with six TDs and one interception in Weeks 2-5 but struggled on a national stage in a 24-of-43, 281-yard, no-TD, one-interception outing Thursday night against the Eagles. He also continues to receive less-than-stellar protection with Philly racking up four sacks and 13 QB hits in the game. N.Y. doesn't even have Geno Smith anymore with Alex Tanney and rookie Kyle Lauletta backing up Eli so Giants fans and Odell Beckham owners are likely going to have to ride out the storm for a while.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/11/18 8:47pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught six of his 10 targets for 44 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Beckham is still piling up catches, but big plays have been in short supply this season. His heavy workload should continue to give him a safe floor, but you shouldn't expect elite production from him on a weekly basis.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 10/11/18 8:43pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 13 times for 130 yards and a touchdown and caught nine passes for 99 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Barkley was the lone bright spot in an otherwise ugly performance for New York's offense. The Giants look to be headed for one of the top picks in next year's draft, but Barkley should still produce RB1 numbers in the meantime.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/11/18 8:57pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 24 of his 43 passes for 281 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. He was also sacked four times.
Huddle Up: It was the first time Manning has been held out of the end zone this season, but these days, he is only producing QB2 numbers in his better outings. That seems unlikely to change with the Giants' current roster.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/11/18 8:54pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes on seven targets for 37 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was Shepard's worst performance since the opener, and he has reached 75 yards in three of the five games this year. Despite the rough night, he has shown he can be a matchup-based WR3.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/10/18 10:49am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: There was a glimmer of hope with Engram's limited status the previous two days, but alas he will be sidelined again. Rhett Ellison will continue to start, but he's only a risky money saver in DFS contests (if he plays).
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/9/18 9:05am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) is expected to be at 'full speed' at the team's practice Tuesday, Oct. 10, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Engram's possible Week 6 return would be welcome news for the Giants' offense and the shallow fantasy tight end position, where he would pick up as a low-end TE1.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/9/18 12:38pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Engram has an uphill battle if he wants to return as the Giants play on a short week. His status could come down to a game-time decision, so have an alternate plan ready. If he's active then he's a TE1.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/8/18 2:35pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was limited in practice Monday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Engram is making positive strides after not practicing all of last week. The Giants are on a short week, but Engram may be able to return if he can avoid the dreaded setback. If he is active then he immediately returns to the TE1 conversation.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/8/18 11:35pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has 'a shot' of playing in the team's Week 6 matchup Thursday, Oct. 11, versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Engram sprained his MCL two weeks ago and has been on the shelf ever since, but fortunately, it looks like the club's 2017 first-round draft pick is a lot closer than not to a return. Consider him a lower-end TE1 once he's back, as it may take some time for him to get back up to speed.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/7/18 5:15pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 22-of-36 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 5 loss against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: This marked Manning first 300-yard game of the season, although his completion percentage was actually his lowest of 2018. The Giants also hit the 30-point plateau for the first time since Jan. 3, 2016. The offense is on the upswing with pieces like Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham Jr., etc. Manning is still a decent QB2, with some fringe fantasy appeal as a low-end QB1 in deeper leagues.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/7/18 5:28pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted eight receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown and he also threw a 57-yard scoring pass to RB Saquon Barkley.
Huddle Up: Beckham's pass to Barkley traveled 24 yards in the air, the longest pass through the air on a score by the Giants since QB Eli Manning hit Beckham on a TD in Week 5 last season. He can be a bit abrasive in his off-field comments, but there's no denying his talent when he is in between the lines. The Giants host the Eagles in Week 6 on Thursday night.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 10/7/18 5:21pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) rushed 15 times for 48 yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and he added four catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns. On his second score, he appears to roll his ankle jumping into the end zone.
Huddle Up: Barkley immediately went to the sideline for treatment from a trainer, but he was up and celebrating with his teammates shortly thereafter his score. If he pops up on the injury report in the upcoming week, you'll know why, but he should be OK for Thursday's game against the Eagles in Week 6.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/7/18 4:08pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with four receptions for 75 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Shepard was dealing with a lower back issue this week, but he made it through the game without any apparent setbacks. He'll have a quick turnaround for Week 6 against the Eagles on Thursday night. Treat him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/6/18 6:53am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) did some running and light cutting Saturday, Oct. 6, but he will likely be out until Week 7. The Thursday night game in Week 6 makes it difficult to return then.
Huddle Up: Keep Engram stashed in all formats. Rhett Ellison has a good matchup against the Carolina Panthers if you're seeking a bye-week replacement and don't have a suitable TE2.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/5/18 9:29am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Engram was expected to miss two to four weeks with his MCL sprain and he is less than two weeks into his recovery at the moment. Rhett Ellison will continue filling in during his absence and be a low-upside TE2 for fantasy purposes.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/4/18 10:59am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 4, after having a cyst removed from his back earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: Shepard's targets, receptions and yards have increased each of the last three weeks, coinciding with the absence of TE Evan Engram, and he's definitely on the flex-start radar this week for the Week 5 contest in Carolina.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/3/18 12:25pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) was absent from practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Shepard broke out for 10 catches, 77 yards and a touchdown last week, but the Carolina Panthers present a much tougher test. If he actually plays, Shepard sits in WR3 territory.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 10/3/18 8:07pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was doing some light work during practice Wednesday, Oct. 3. Engram said he has been doing some straight-line running.
Huddle Up: Engram is expected to miss a few more weeks because of his injury, but it is a good sign that he is able to do some things. Owners should stash him on their bench until he is able to return.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 10/3/18 11:19pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) is expected to return to practice on Thursday, Oct. 4. Shepard did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 3, after having a cyst removed from his back.
Huddle Up: That's good news for Shepard, who posted a 10-77-1 line last Sunday and figures to be heavily involved again this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Consider him a solid WR3.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 9/30/18 8:58pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 10 times for 44 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 56 yards in a 33-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Huddle Up: His rushing numbers haven't been spectacular, but his versatility has allowed him to reach 100 total yards in all four games this year. His role as a workhorse back makes him a weekly RB1 candidate.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 9/30/18 8:53pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught all 10 of his targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in a 33-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Shepard has turned in back-to-back solid outings, and even as the No. 3 option in the offense behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley, he is worth considering as a flex option.
