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 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.

The Titans have placed WR A.J. Brown on IR for his chest injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's not expected to end his season, so we should see him back at some point in December. But the earliest he can return is Week 16. Tennessee has its bye next week. That means Brown will -- at best -- make it back for the final 2 weeks of most fantasy leagues' seasons. If you play in a league with tight roster restrictions, Brown might be a drop candidate. Julio Jones will be eligible to come off IR after the bye. Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Chester Rogers will lead the group this week, with Marcus Johnson out.

Titans WR Marcus Johnson (hamstring) has been placed on IR and is done for the season. He'd been the replacement for WR Julio Jones, who's out for at least 1 more game. WR A.J. Brown is also dealing with a chest injury. Tennessee's healthy WRs are Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Dez Fitzpatrick and Chester Rogers. The team signed WR Golden Tate to the practice squad on Tuesday.

Titans WR Marcus Johnson injured his right right hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Texans and was quickly ruled out. He finishes catch-less on 1 target.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Michael Pittman figure to serve as Indy’s top 3 WRs. Pascal is the best bet for targets, but even he’s just a WR4.

Colts WR Michael Pittman (calf) has been activated from IR and is expected to play against the Lions on Sunday. The rookie is worth stashing in deeper leagues but shouldn't be in Week 8 fantasy lineups. Pittman's return does damper the sleeper appeal on WRs Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson, though.

Colts WR Parris Campbell has been placed on the IR after breaking his foot in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It ends a rookie season that also saw Campbell deal with hamstring, hernia and hand injuries. We'll track his rehab this offseason. The Colts are down to WRs Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Ashton Dulin.
