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 WR Wan'Dale Robinson tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That ends Robinson's rookie season and might threaten his availability for the start of the 2023 campaign. Richie James figures to step in as New York's primary slot receiver the rest of the way, but Darius Slayton will likely be the only Giants WR that's trustable in fantasy lineups.

Giants WR Darius Slayton caught 5 of 10 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. It marked his 2nd straight game of more than 80 receiving yards. Slayton looks like the de facto lead wideout for the Giants going forward, assuming Wan'Dale Robinson's knee injury is as serious as feared. We'll see what Monday brings on that front.

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.

Giants WR Kenny Golladay (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. Wan’Dale Robinson, Darius Slayton and Marcus Johnson should again operate as New York’s top 3 WRs in that one.

Giants rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson led the team in targets (8) and receptions (6) in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, tallying 50 yards in his 2nd game back from the knee injury. WR Darius Slayton checked in 2nd with 6 targets, catching 3 of them for a team-high 58 yards.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Kenny Golladay (knee) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. What else is new? Darius Slayton (26 routes), Marcus Johnson (26), Richie James (13) and Wan'Dale Robinson (12) operated as New York's top 4 WRs last week. Robinson is the only potential fantasy option -- and he's a risky play until we see his route rate climb.

Giants WR Darius Slayton led the team in targets (7), receptions (6) and receiving yards (79) in Sunday's win over the Packers. No other Giant caught more than 3 passes or topped 36 yards. Saquon Barkley was the only other player with more than 3 targets, catching 3 of 6 for 36 yards. WR Marcus Johnson caught all 3 of his targets for 35 yards after being elevated from the practice squad. He also led the crew in total snaps and routes run. Richie James and David Sills V supplied just 2 catches apiece, ranking 3rd and 4th -- respectively -- in snaps.

Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Packers in London. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was sidelined on Friday. That doesn't bode well for Robinson's chances of returning in Week 6. With WRs Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay also out this weekend, New York is down to WRs Richie James, David Sills, Darius Slayton and Marcus Johnson.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) are out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. Neither guy practiced all week. With WR Sterling Shepard out with his torn ACL, the Giants are down to WRs Richie James, David Sills, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton.

The Giants and WR Darius Slayton have negotiated a pay cut that will keep the wideout on the team, according to Newsboy's Tom Rock. Slayton agreed to drop his salary from $2.54 million to the league minimum of $965,000, with incentives that could rebound the number. The move saves the Giants $1.6 million in cap space. Although the agreement keeps Slayton on the team, it clearly doesn't bode well for his role in the offense.

Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News noted Friday that WR Darius Slayton was running with the 3rd team. That's a notable fall for a guy who has exceeded 80 targets twice in 3 NFL seasons. We already expected Slayton to be brushed aside in this year's offense, with Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay entering their 2nd Giants seasons and Wan'Dale Robinson arriving in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Consider this a signal to not even look Slayton's way much as an end-of-draft flyer in best-ball tournaments. Slayton could be in danger of missing the Giants' regular-season roster.

According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, the Giants have had discussions about moving on from WR Darius Slayton. Raanan actually wrote that such discussions started last year — before New York overhauled its coaching staff and front office, of course. Slayton reportedly struggled with drops in offseason practices and routinely worked with backups. The 25-year-old is off the redraft radar.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s finale vs. Washington. The rookie flashed when on the field but ultimately missed 6 games and parts of a few more with a variety of injuries. WR Darius Slayton is off the COVID list and figures to start alongside WR Kenny Golladay on Sunday.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. WRs Darius Slayton, John Ross and Collin Johnson are also out, leaving Pharoh Cooper, David Sills and Alex Bachman behind Kenny Golladay on the WR depth chart. Golladay still isn’t a bankable fantasy play with Jake Fromm or Mike Glennon under center.

Giants WR Darius Slayton has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Sunday's game vs. the Bears -- but hopefully wasn't in your fantasy plans.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard (quad) and Kadarius Toney (quad) are inactive for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. With those guys out last week, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton operated as New York's primary outside WRs, with Pharoh Cooper in the slot. Try to avoid the situation in fantasy lineups, especially with Mike Glennon under center.
