WR Darius Slayton re-signed with the Giants on a 2-year, $12 million deal. Slayton has been pretty consistent through 4 NFL seasons, finishing with 46-50 catches and 724-751 receiving yards in 3 of them. That, of course, isn't enough to really get the fantasy juices flowing. Slayton is still just 26 and a candidate to take a step forward in his 2nd season under HC Brian Daboll. But don't consider him more than a WR4 in early best-ball drafts. The Giants' WR corps now reads: Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Wan'Dale Robinson, Parris Campbell, Sterling Shepard.

The Giants have agreed to a four-year deal with QB Daniel Jones. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the contract will pay him $160 million, with another $35 million available in incentives. And it pays $82 million over the first two years. The agreement came just before the franchise-tag deadline, allowing the Giants to use the tag on RB Saquon Barkley. Now we'll see what the team can add at WR to help Jones' fantasy upside.

Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 15 of 27 attempts for 135 passing yards with 1 INT in Saturday's Divisional Round loss vs. the Eagles. He also added 24 yards on 9 carries in the ground game. The former 1st round pick is set to become a free agent this offseason after recording the most productive season as a pro. Jones set a career-high in passing yards (3,205) and rushing yards (708) in 2022. When asked about returning to the team, Jones said he'll "cross that bridge when we get there. I’ve really enjoyed playing here. I appreciate all those guys in the locker room. It’s a special group of guys. And I really enjoyed being a part of it," in post-game interviews. His future will be one of great intrigue this offseason.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Giants held long-term contract talks with RB Saquon Barkley during the season. Per Rapoport, the team wants Barkley and Daniel Jones to return for 2023. (No surprise there.) The franchise tag remains likely to be used on 1 of those guys. Per Spotrac, New York currently has the 3rd most cap-space league-wide (~54$ million).

Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 24 of 35 passes for 301 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings. The fourth-year QB also led the team in rushing, tallying 78 yards on 17 carries on the ground. This remarkable performance from Jones will be worth keeping in the back of fantasy managers' minds when filling out DFS lineups moving forward in this NFL postseason. Jones is building a strong case for a sizeable contract as he approaches free agency.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Eagles. QB Daniel Jones is active but isn't expected to play in this game that means nothing to New York.

Giants QB Davis Webb is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Eagles, according to insider Ryan Dunleavy. It's confirmation that the Giants will be resting starters in a game that means nothing to them. Don't expect QB Daniel Jones or RB Saquon Barkley to play. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James also figure to be held out or limited.

The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy reports that the Giants are expected to sit "key starters" in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Eagles. New York is locked into the NFC's #6 seed and has nothing to play for. We've been projecting QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley to sit all week. Look for QB Tyrod Taylor to get the start and for RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell to handle backfield duties. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James could also be held out or be pulled early in Sunday's game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 177 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's 38-10 beatdown of the Colts. He added 91 yards and 2 more scores on the ground. Jones hit WR Richie James and WR Isaiah Hodgins for TDs. James caught all 7 of his team-high 7 targets for a team-leading 76 yards. Hodgins ranked 2nd on the team in targets (5) and receptions (4), totaling 42 yards. TE Daniel Bellinger (3-42) was the only other Giant to catch more than 2 passes. This was Jones' 1st game all season with more than 2 total TDs. The Giants clinched a playoff spot with the victory. We'll see what they have to play for in a Week 18 visit to the Eagles.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 334 yards and a TD (plus an INT) in Saturday's loss to the Vikings. It marked just the 2nd time all year that Jones reached 300 yards, in just his 2nd game with 40+ passing attempts. Jones added 34 yards rushing on just 4 attempts. His lone TD throw went to WR Isaiah Hodgins, 1 of 3 Giants with 8 receptions.

Giants QB Daniel Jones served as a game manager on Sunday night, completing 21 of 32 pass attempts for 160 and nary a touchdown nor interception. Jones also posted 35 yards rushing on top of his meager passing totals. Sunday's victory saw a boring effort from Jones. The Giants are set to face a Vikings defense in Week 16 that presents the 11th-easiest matchup for opposing QBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. Those looking to stream QB in 1QB leagues, or folks in need of a QB2 in superflex leagues, can feel good about rolling out Jones against the Vikings.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for just 200 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's tie with the Commanders. He did prove efficient, completing 25 of 31 passes but took 4 sacks and lost a fumble. Jones also led the team with 71 rushing yards on 12 carries. He gets a tough matchup with the Eagles in Week 14.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 228 yards and 1 TD in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys. It marked his 2nd-largest yardage total of the year but just 6.5 yards per pass attempt. Jones targeted 3 different teammates 6 times apiece. WR Richie James caught a team-high 5 passes for 41 yards and the lone TD. Darius Slayton caught 3 balls for 63 yards, with a 44-yard 1st-quarter snag delivering most of that. RB Saquon Barkley was the other 6-target Giant. Week 13 holds a pass-funnel matchup with Washington.

Giants QB Daniel Jones tossed 2 INTs in Sunday's loss to the Lions. His team trailed 17-6 by halftime and then 24-6 before the middle of the 3rd quarter, which helped drive up passing volume and boost Jones' fantasy numbers. He completed 27 of 44 passes for 341 yards, Jones' 1st game of 300 yards this year and just his 3rd with 200+. Jones threw just 1 TD pass (to WR Richie James) but added 50 yards and a TD on the ground. Jones entered Sunday night as the #2 fantasy QB for the week. Week 12 holds a challenging matchup with the Cowboys.

The Giants didn't ask QB Daniel Jones to do too much in Sunday's win over the Texans. They dropped him back just 23 times vs. 44 team rushing attempts. Jones took 3 sacks but went 13 of 17 passing for 197 yards (11.6 per attempt) and 2 TDs. He found WR Darius Slayton for a 54-yard score in the 3rd quarter and TE Lawrence Cager for a 9-yard TD. Jones added 24 rushing yards on 5 attempts. He's had just 1 other game of fewer than 21 pass attempts all season and had thrown 27+ passes in 4 straight before the Houston game. Expect a rebound in passing volume, though Week 11 holds another positive rushing matchup with Detroit. Slayton (3-95-1) and TE Tanner Hudson (3-24) were the only Giants to catch more than 2 balls vs. the Texans.

Daniel Jones went 17-of-31 (54.8%) passing for 176 yards and 0 TDs in Sunday's loss at Seattle. He added just 20 yards on 6 rushes in a game where the Giants couldn't get anything going against a surging defense. Jones took 5 sacks, the 3rd time this year he has reached that number. He did avoid turning the ball over, though, his 5th such game among 8 this season. WR Darius Slayton led the receivers in targets (6), receptions (5) and yards (66). TE Tanner Hudson (3-58 on 5 targets) was the only other Giant to eclipse 15 yards. WR Wan'Dale Robinson managed just 2 receptions for 15 yards on 3 targets. The Giants get their bye in Week 9.
