Giants WR Jalin Hyatt has been ruled out of Sunday's finale vs. the Eagles with a hamstring injury. He caught one of two targets for five yards before exiting and finishes his rookie campaign with 368 scoreless yards. Hyatt was considered a project coming out of Tennessee, so his development will be worth watching closely this offseason. He's a dynasty hold.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor will start this weekend's game vs. the Rams, HC Brian Daboll said. Taylor played reasonably well in relief of QB Tommy DeVito in Philadelphia on Monday, throwing for 133 yards, one TD, and one INT in the second half. He completed 64% of his passes at 7.4 yards per attempt with two TDs and 0 INTs in starts against the Bills and Commanders earlier this season. Taylor is just a low-end QB2 for Week 17, but he should bring more stability to the offense than DeVito.

The Giants’ offense didn’t have to do much to eke out a 10-7 win over the Patriots in Week 12. There isn’t a ton to dig into from this game, but rookie WR Jalin Hyatt deserves recognition. He hauled in 5 of his team-high 6 targets for 109 receiving yards on Sunday. The rookie saw a decent chunk of that yardage come on an early 41-yard bomb, but it’s worth highlighting a few things about his performance. Hyatt recorded his highest route participation rate (75.7%) since Week 6 and saw a target on 19.2% of his routes. In the three games he’s seen a greater than 66% route participation, Hyatt is averaging 68.3 receiving yards and 10.2 PPR points per game. It’s not a lot of information to go off of, but he’s shown a propensity for netting big yards when he’s involved more than two-thirds of the time. Headed into their bye week, Hyatt is a name for dynasty managers or those in deeper season-long formats to pay some attention to as an under-the-radar acquisition target.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. He leads Giants WRs in pass routes and targets this season. Slayton’s absence figures to mean more playing time for WRs Jalin Hyatt and Isaiah Hodgins outside the numbers, but neither is a recommended Week 12 fantasy play.

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt has cleared the concussion protocol and will be available for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. The rookie has just two catches over the last three weeks and isn’t a viable fantasy play with QB Tommy DeVito under center.

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt sustained a concussion in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. That'll likely knock the rookie out for Week 11's game vs. the Commanders. Hyatt, of course, was not a realistic fantasy play with QB Tommy DeVito.

The Athletic's Dan Duggan reported that Giants WR Jalin Hyatt saw the "most first-team work since being drafted" by the team on Friday. The Giants selected the 2022 Biletnikoff Award winner out of Tennessee with the 73rd pick of the 2023 NFL Draft in hopes of bolstering a less-than-stellar WR room. This news comes on the heels of Hyatt leaving practice early on Wednesday due to what the team called "heat-related reasons." Considering only one wideout (Darius Slayton) exceeded 600 yards receiving last season, the Giants will need all the help they can get. HC Brian Daboll spoke about Hyatt, saying that it's "up to him to go out there and show what he can do," and that each player will have to "will earn their role" in the offense. Sure, it's just coach speak, but seeing Hyatt out there earning reps with the first-team offense this early on is a great sign. We'll keep an eye on his progress as training camp unfolds.

NFL analyst Greg Cosell doesn’t expect Giants WR Jalin Hyatt to be a “major factor” in the 2023 offense. “I think he’s going to have a lot to learn,” Cosell said on the Inside the Birds podcast. “Yes, he can run. There’s no question he can run, and he can get on top of the defense … but I don’t think …based on tape study… that he’s going be a big factor, particularly early in the season.” The rookie fell to Round 3, perhaps due to a limited route tree and a single year of production. Either way, he landed with a Giants squad that’s unsettled at WR long-term. See where Hyatt landed in our dynasty WR rankings.

Giants QB Daniel Jones looks to build off a solid 2022 in Year 2 with HC Brian Daboll. Jones set career-highs in adjusted completion rate (80.1%), passing yards (3,642), and yards per attempt (6.8). The last two figures aren’t particularly impressive, but remember his leading receivers: Darius Slayton, Richie James, Isaiah Hodgins, and Saquon Barkley. While Sterling Shepard and Wan’Dale Robinson are candidates for the PUP list, New York added pass-catching talent in Darren Waller, Parris Campbell, and Round 3 pick Jalin Hyatt. Even modest passing improvements would give Jones a chance to perform as a top-10 fantasy QB. Last year, he ranked fourth among QBs in rushes; second in scrambles.

The Giants selected Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt in Round 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft. Hyatt won the 2022 Biletnikoff Award as the top receiver in college football, compiling 1,267 yards and 15 TDs on 67 receptions. That’s a huge 18.9 yards per catch. And this dude can fly. Hyatt clocked a 4.40-second 40 time at the Combine and plays even faster, routinely running by SEC CBs. He also possesses underrated ball skills and a large catch radius. Now, Tennessee’s up-tempo, spread offense regularly put Hyatt in favorable situations. He has a significant transition to make to an NFL-style offense. It’s also worth noting that Hyatt totaled just 502 receiving yards over his first 2 NFL seasons and is slenderly built at 6’0, 176 pounds. We like Hyatt’s chances of emerging as a legit big-play threat for the Giants. But he might lack the size, physicality, and route-running acumen to become the focal point of an NFL passing game. We'll see how the Giants plan to deploy him. The lackluster WR corps presents opportunity as soon as Hyatt's able to prove he's ready. Check out Hyatt's initial projection in our 2023 fantasy football WR rankings.

Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt weighed in at just 176 pounds (on his 6-foot frame) at the NFL Scouting Combine. His testing numbers looked good, though. He led all WRs with an 11'3 broad jump and ranked fourth with a 40-inch vertical. Altogether, Hyatt rated seventh among 44 WRs in Relative Athletic Score. The early draft entrant is coming off a huge receiving line: 67 catches, 1,267 yards, and 15 TDs. His 18.9 yards per catch match the 4.4-second speed he flashed at the Combine. His relatively late breakout -- as a nearly 21-year-old junior -- is a negative, however. We'll dig further into the likely early-round pick for his upcoming prospect profile. Hyatt's current WR49 ADP in Underdog fantasy best ball drafts makes him OK to mix in, though it's hard to imagine a huge spike after he finds his NFL team.
