Fourth-round rookie TE Daniel Bellinger just might be the favorite to start for the the Giants this season. NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt reports that Bellinger was "almost exclusively running with the first-team offense" at Thursday's OTA practice. "Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins are both healthy and were running with the backups," Rosenblatt added. Although it's tough to count on much from any rookie TE -- let alone a 4th-round pick -- this report highlights Bellinger's limited competition on the road to a lead job. He's not a bad shot to take as a 3rd TE in best-ball drafts right now, especially when stacked with QB Daniel Jones. We'll keep watching how the situation develops.

The Giants added San Diego State TE Daniel Bellinger in the 4th round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Bellinger totaled just 68 catches for 771 yards and 5 TDs across 4 college seasons. He fared poorly in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and yards per route run last year. On the plus side, the 6'5, 247-pounder earned a 97th percentile Relative Athletic Score at the Combine, highlighted by a 4.63-second 40 time. That at least gives him the potential to be more productive in the pros than he was in college. Bellinger joins a wide-open Giants TE group alongside Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins.

The Giants have reached a deal with TE Ricky Seals-Jones, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. RSJ matched his career high with 2.3 receptions per game for Washington last season, benefitting from Logan Thomas missing time. At the moment, he looks like the top pass-catching TE for a New York offense that let Evan Engram walk in free agency and released Kyle Rudolph. We'd bet that the Giants aren't done at the position, though.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (concussion) is out for Sunday’s finale vs. the Giants. That leaves rookie John Bates as the team’s top TE. He’d be a desperation season-long play but is a viable cheap option in DFS.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones is in the concussion protocol, HC Ron Rivera said Monday. It sounds like RSJ escaped further injury after being carted off the field during the Week 17 loss to the Eagles, but he's unlikely to play in this weekend's finale vs. the Giants. Seals-Jones absence would leave TE John Bates as a near every-down player.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones was knocked out in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Eagles with a neck injury. He collided with a cameraman on the sidelines and had to be carted off the field. We'll update RSJ's status when we know more. TE John Bates should be a full-time player for Washington the rest of this one.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (illness) is active for tonight's game vs. the Eagles. He split snaps with TE John Bates last time out and will be catching passes from QB Garrett Gilbert tonight. RSJ isn't an attractive fantasy option, despite this plus matchup.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday night's game vs. the Eagles. He put in a full practice on Monday, so he should be available.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) isn't listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. He'll play vs. the Cowboys on Sunday for the 1st time since Week 10. With TE Logan Thomas out for the season, we're expecting Seals-Jones to step in as Washington's lead TE. But it's possible that he cedes some work to rookie TE John Bates.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He seemingly has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. Washington could certainly use Seals-Jones with TE Logan Thomas out for the season.

Washington is placing TE Logan Thomas (knee) on IR. It's his 2nd trip to IR, which ends his 2021 season. We're still waiting for more details on Thomas' knee injury and whether it'll impact his 2022 campaign. It'll be rookie John Bates and Ricky Seals-Jones, who seems close to returning from his hip injury, at TE for Washington the rest of the way.

Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports that Washington TE Logan Thomas avoided an ACL tear. HC Ron Rivera told reporters that Thomas' MRI came back better than expected. He said further testing is needed to confirm, so we'll see about the final diagnosis here. We're certainly betting on Thomas to miss some time. We'll see whether he has a shot to return this year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington TE Logan Thomas "likely" tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee in Sunday's win over the Raiders. That would obviously end the TE's season and potentially challenge the start of his 2022 campaign. We'll see how he progresses through the offseason. TE Ricky Seals-Jones appeared close to returning this week and would likely re-assume lead TE duties if healthy in Week 14. Rookie John Bates figures to factor in as well.

Washington TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) is expected to be activated from IR and play vs. the Seahawks on Monday night, according to ESPN's John Keim. Thomas has been out since Week 4 and will be on a snap count, HC Ron Rivera said. That obviously adds downside to Thomas' Week 12 fantasy outlook. TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) is listed as doubtful for the Monday nighter.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) isn't ready to return yet, leaving 4th-round rookie John Bates as Washington's lead TE. Bates caught just 47 balls across 4 seasons at Boise State and is a below-average athlete. But he ran a route on 85% of pass plays in the 2nd half of last week's game. That type of usage puts him on the radar as a cheap DFS flier.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) missed practice again on Thursday. He's not looking likely to play vs. the Panthers this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow. TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, either.

Washington TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) still isn't listed on the injury report because he hasn't been activated from IR, but he reportedly was working off to the side of practice with trainers. If both guys are out vs. the Panthers this weekend, Washington would be down to rookie TE John Bates.

Washington HC Ron Rivera labeled TE Ricky Seals-Jones "day to day" with the hip injury that knocked him out of yesterday's loss to the Bucs. We'll keep an eye on him this week, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. TE Logan Thomas (hamstring) is also uncertain for Week 11. Rookie TE John Bates is the next man up for The Football Team.
