WR Kadarius Toney barely got onto the field in Sunday's win over the Titans. He played just 12% of the offensive snaps and ran a route on just 10% of dropbacks, according to Pro Football Focus. That's terrible usage for a guy who seemed to have a shot at serving as the Giants' #1 wideout. Little else went right for the passing game to push Toney aside. RB Saquon Barkley led the team in targets and catches. Richie James served as the top-producing wideout, with 5 catches for 59 yards among 6 targets. Sterling Shepard led the team with 71 receiving yards, thanks mostly to a 65-yard TD. Kenny Golladay garnered just 2 targets, and rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson left with a knee injury.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is not listed on the Week 1 injury report. The mercurial WR missed a bunch of time in August with lower-body injuries but is ready to go for Sunday's opener vs. the Titans.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's "ready to go" for this weekend's opener vs. the Titans. ESPN's Jordan Raanan confirms that Shepard "fully plans on playing" on Sunday. It's a remarkably quick turnaround for Shepard, who tore his Achilles last December and was just activated from the PUP list 2 weeks ago. Shepard shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups, but he's worth stashing on benches and complicates the outlooks of WRs Kadarius Toney, Wan'Dale Robinson and Kenny Golladay.

Giants beat writer Dan Duggan tweeted Wednesday that WR Kadarius Toney “looks 100%” in practice. Of course, the challenge is for Toney to stay that way going forward. The 2nd-year man remains a highly volatile fantasy asset.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Monday that he's "hopeful" WR Kadarius Toney will be available for the season opener. Toney has missed a bunch of time this month with knee/hamstring trouble. “I think he’s getting close," Daboll said. We'll keep a close eye on Toney's health over the next couple of weeks. He remains a risk/reward fantasy pick.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is “still banged up” with a right leg injury, per ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. Toney reportedly grabbed the back of his leg during portions Wednesday's workout. Nagging injuries are nothing new for Toney, who appeared in only 10 games as a rookie. The upside remains enormous here, but the Florida product will be tough to trust as an early-season WR3 or flex.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (knee) returned to individual drills on Tuesday. It's a pleasant surprise after HC Brian Daboll said Sunday that Toney was unlikely to practice this week. We'll continue to keep an eye on the mercurial WR, but he seems on track to be ready come Week 1.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Sunday that WR Kadarius Toney (leg) is unlikely to practice this week. The feeling prior to today was that Toney would return sooner, so perhaps he encountered a setback. The 2nd-year WR made only 10 appearances as a rookie and underwent offseason knee surgery. We'll let you know when he returns to the field.

Giants HC Brian Daboll commented on WR Kadarius Toney’s knee injury. The 2nd-year WR has missed a few training camp practices and Week 1 of the preseason. "He worked really hard coming from the offseason to get to where he is right now," Daboll said. "Things happen in practice, things happen in a game. If he was ready to go, he would be out there. We thought it would be in our best interest and in his best interest not to play this game relative to what he was going through, his injury and hopefully these next few days will calm it down and we'll be ready to go again." Toney remains a volatile fantasy asset with a wide range of outcomes.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (knee) is ready for the start of training camp. He had minor knee surgery earlier this offseason and was limited in OTAs. But it should be a non-issue going forward. Toney remains an exciting pick at his WR47 ADP.

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 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 “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.
