Kadarius Toney Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Per beat writer Pat Leonard, Giants WR Kadarius Toney underwent a “minor” arthroscopic knee procedure. He’s been limited in OTAs as a result. Per Leonard, Toney is “expected to be fine and ready for training camp.” Still, it’s a concerning development after Toney picked up a variety of injuries as a rookie. Avoiding a setback in training camp will be critical for the mercurial WR.

Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson lined up "almost exclusively" in the slot at rookie minicamp on Friday, according to NJ Advance Media's Zack Rosenblatt. That "will be his long-term role in this offense," Rosenblatt adds. Robinson played inside and out at Kentucky last year. But, at 5'8 and 178 pounds, he was always destined for the slot in the NFL. New HC Brian Daboll's Bills led the league in percentage of offensive snaps with 3+ WRs on the field last year (84.5%). So, if Robinson wins the starting slot job, he'll be on the field plenty. It also means that WR Kadarius Toney will be playing primarily on the outside after spending 59% of his snaps in the slot as a rookie last season.

The Giants selected Kentucky WR Wan’Dale Robinson with the 43rd overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Robinson is a fun watch. He’s quick, elusive and explosive with the ball in his hands. And he has the acceleration and speed to win deep. Robinson is a raw route runner, though, at least in part because he’s relatively inexperienced at WR. He played RB in high school and spent about 50% of his snaps in the backfield as a freshman at Nebraska. Robinson played more WR than RB for the Huskers in 2020. But it wasn’t until he transferred to Kentucky this past year that he really broke out. Under OC Liam Coen, who worked under Sean McVay in Los Angeles from 2018 to 2020, Robinson finished 3rd in the country in receptions (104) and 11th in receiving yards (1,334). He ranked top 5 among 251 qualifying WRs in both yards per route run and Pro Football Focus receiving grade. Robinson played about two-thirds of his snaps in the slot but was actually slightly more effective in terms of yards per route run on the outside (3.82 vs. 3.45). The concern with Robinson is size. He’s just 5’8, 178 pounds and has the shortest arm length and wingspan of all WRs in the MockDraftable.com database. Robinson’s skill set overlaps a bit with WR Kadarius Toney, who might still be on thin ice with the new Giants regime. We’ll see how the situation shakes out.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney has been in town and at the team's facility for the past few days, according to insider Bobby Skinner. ESPN's Jordan Raanan, meanwhile, hears that the Giants still view Toney as a "valuable asset" and "would want a significant return" in a trade. "Makes it seem right now the likelihood is he does not get moved," Raanan adds.

Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports that the Giants are "making calls on what they can get" for WR Kadarius Toney. The team drafted Toney 20th overall just last season but has since changed its GM and HC. Toney flashed as a rookie but appeared in just 10 games and compiled 57 total targets. It's hard to imagine the Giants getting a Round 1 pick in trade for Toney. We'll see what the market holds and whether a move actually happens. For now, be wary of Toney in best-ball drafts and dynasty trade proposals.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is not at the team's minicamp this week, HC Brian Daboll said Wednesday. Daboll added that Toney doesn't have the playbook yet since the team hasn't done anything virtual. This, of course, is a "mandatory" minicamp. But it's still an inauspicious start for Toney, who had a litany of issues last offseason.

Giants GM Joe Schoen told reporters at the Scouting Combine on Tuesday that he’s willing to listen to any trade offers. It doesn’t sound like he’s interested in moving 2021 first-round WR Kadarius Toney, though. "I don't think Kadarius is a tradable piece," the new GM said, per ESPN.com. “He's a good, young player who our coaches really like. We've been in constant contact with him and we're excited to see what he can do." This is noteworthy because neither Schoen nor the Brian Daboll-led coaching staff was around for Toney’s selection or rookie campaign. There’s opportunity available in a passing game that proved wildly disappointing in 2021, especially with TE Evan Engram heading for free agency and WR Sterling Shepard uncertain coming off an Achilles’ tear. We’ll be watching for offseason reports on Toney’s progress and role

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) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to play vs. Washington this weekend. We'll keep tabs on Toney over the next couple of days.

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 Kadarius Toney (shoulder) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It's a new injury for the rookie and has his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Bears in doubt. Toney shouldn't be in your Week 17 fantasy plans.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (oblique) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. It’ll be the rookie’s first action since Week 11 after dealing with a couple of different injuries and a trip to the COVID list. Especially with QB Jake Fromm making his 1st start, Toney is a shaky fantasy play.

The Giants are expected to bring back HC Joe Judge and QB Daniel Jones for the 2022 season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a head scratcher considering that duo has had very little success. The Giants are 10-20 since Judge took over in 2020, while Jones' play has been consistently inconsistent since arriving as the 6th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. If the Giants indeed stick with these guys for 2022, it'll be tough to get excited about the offense for fantasy purposes.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (oblique) has a "good chance" to play vs. the Eagles today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We haven't see Toney since Week 11 due to a couple of different injuries and a trip to the COVID list. He wasn't activated from the COVID list until Thursday and only got in a limited practice on Friday. We'd stay away from Toney is Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney was activated from the COVID list on Thursday but is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles with his oblique injury. We haven’t seen the rookie since Week 11 due to multiple injuries. Toney would be tough to trust in Week 16 fantasy lineups if he ends up playing.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney has been activated from the COVID list. He was dealing with an oblique injury before testing positive, so his status for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles remains uncertain.
