Giants WRs Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) are active for today’s game vs. the Rams. WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) is inactive. WR John Ross figures to operate as New York’s #3 WR in place of Slayton.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Rams today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie is listed as questionable but got in 3 limited practices this week. We'll get his game status around 11:30 am ET.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard (hamstring), Kadarius Toney (ankle) and Darius Slayton (hamstring) were limited in practice all week. Shepard was left off the final injury report, while Toney and Slayton are listed as questionable. All 3 guys are expected to play vs. the Rams on Sunday, but it looks like Shepard is healthiest. WR Kenny Golladay (knee) is out.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (concussion) will be a full participant in Friday's practice and "appears" on track to start Sunday's game vs. the Rams, HC Joe Judge said Friday morning. Jones still needs to be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play this weekend, but it sounds like that's expected to happen. Jones is a borderline QB1 for Week 6 and an upgrade over QB Mike Glennon for all of New York's skill-position players.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (ankle), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Darius Slayton (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. All 3 are expected to play vs. the Rams this weekend, but we'll get another update tomorrow.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) practiced on Wednesday. He should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. His fantasy value will hinge on whether QB Daniel Jones can get cleared from his concussion in time to play.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney came away from Sunday's game with an ankle injury that complicates his Week 6 outlook. HC Joe Judge said Monday that an X-ray came back negative and that he doesn't "think it's anything significant," according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. Judge reportedly added that it might keep him out of Sunday's game against the Rams. Toney played through the issue en route to his big game in Dallas. We'll see what this week brings.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is not expected to be suspended for throwing a punch near the end of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Toney was ejected from that game, putting an end to a breakout performance. The rookie posted a big 10-189 line on 13 targets. He has 16 catches on 22 targets over the past 2 weeks. WRs Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are all currently dealing with injuries. But even when they're all healthy, Toney should remain a big part of this Giants passing game.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney was ejected in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game after punching Cowboys S Damontae Kazee. The rookie had a monster game before exiting, catching 10 of 13 targets for 189 yards. We'll see if he faces any further discipline from the league.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton remained sidelined on Thursday with their hamstring injuries. Both guys are likely to miss this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. That keeps rookie WR Kadarius Toney in play as a Week 5 fantasy starter.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton remained sidelined on Wednesday with their hamstring injuries. At this point, we should be assuming they won't play vs. the Cowboys this weekend. That'd make WR Kadarius Toney a viable Week 5 fantasy starter. The rookie turned 9 targets into a 6-78 line last week.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints with their hamstring injuries. Kenny Golladay should operate as New York's clear #1 WR. We're expecting to see Kadarius Toney replace Shepard in the slot and Collin Johnson and C.J. Board to team up to replace Slayton. RB Saquon Barkley and TE Evan Engram should also play significant roles in the Giants' passing game.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton remained sidelined on Thursday with their hamstring injuries. Both guys figure to miss this weekend's game vs. the Saints. Rookie Kadarius Toney figures to step in as New York's primary slot receiver, with Collin Johnson and C.J. Board filling in for Slayton.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard hurt his hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. Atlanta and was quickly ruled out. Shepard has been New York's lead receiver early this year. We'll see if his absence leads to additional playing time for rookie WR Kadarius Toney.

Giants HC Joe Judge said WR Kadarius Toney aggravated an injury at the end of this past week. Judge wouldn't disclose the injury or give a timetable for Toney's return. It's the latest setback for the rookie, who has had an eventful last few months. Toney is a long shot for fantasy value at least early on this season.

Sterling Shepard is expected to be the Giants' primary slot receiver this season, according to The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy. “I love the slot,” Shepard said from training camp on Tuesday. “It’s where I’m super comfortable. I just like the space that you have. I’m able to go all the way across the field, come back out, do the short-intermediate routes, which I enjoy running.” Shepard played 82% of his snaps in the slot as a rookie back in 2016. That rate has steadily declined over the past 4 seasons, bottoming out at 34% last year. Shepard's most efficient seasons in terms of yards per target came in 2017 and 2018, when he played 74% and then 55% of his snaps in the slot. Consider more slot snaps good news for Shepard's 2021 outlook. But we'll have to see if he stays on the field and kicks outside when the Giants go to 2-WR sets. This news also means New York's 3-WR sets figure to feature Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton on the outside. Rookie Kadarius Toney is expected to play mostly in the slot, so it looks like he's is line to open the season no better than 4th on the depth chart.

Giants HC Joe Judge said Tuesday WR Kadarius Toney has returned to the team and will participate in meetings. “Judge made it clear they'll take it slow as far as integrating Toney into practices,” according to Dan Dugan of The Athletic. Toney, of course, recently landed on the COVID list. We don’t expect this to impact his season outlook.

The Giants placed WR Kadarius Toney on the COVID list Thursday after the rookie tested positive for the virus. Toney can only take part in meetings remotely until he's cleared and obviously won't practice with the team while on the list. This shouldn't affect his regular-season status. Toney's summer will be interesting to track, though.
