After putting in a limited practice on Wednesday, Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. We'll see if this is a setback or a planned day off. Regardless, Toney shouldn't be in your Week 5 fantasy plans. WRs Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and Richie James (ankle) were both limited Thursday and seem on track to play vs. the Packers Sunday morning.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice. That gives them a shot to return for Sunday morning's game vs. the Packers. WRs Richie James (ankle) and Kenny Golladay (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Giants HC Brian Daboll said Monday that WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) are "making progress." Both guys will be re-evaluated on Thursday to see if they have a chance to play vs. the Packers this weekend.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) are out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. Neither guy practiced all week. With WR Sterling Shepard out with his torn ACL, the Giants are down to WRs Richie James, David Sills, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. It looks like both guys will miss this weekend's game vs. the Bears, leaving the Giants with WRs Richie James, David Sills, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton.

Giants WRs Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. New York is desperate for WR help after losing Sterling Shepard for the season. If Toney and Robinson can't play vs. the Bears this weekend, the Giants will be left with WRs Richie James, David Sills, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton.

The Giants have ruled WR Wan'Dale Robinson out for Monday night's game against the Cowboys with the knee injury he suffered in Week 1.

Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. We still don't have any details on Robinson's knee injury, but he didn't practice all week and seems to be looking at a multi-week absence. Robinson is only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

Giants WR Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We still don't have any details on his injury, but ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports that Robinson had a brace on his right knee and said, "it certainly looks like he'll miss some time." The rookie is not a must-hold on redraft rosters.

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 Wan'Dale Robinson suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and has been ruled out. We'll pass along an update on his injury when we get one.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play in Sunday’s opener vs. the Titans, a little less than 9 months after tearing his Achilles. We’ll see exactly how big a role Shepard is ready for, but he shouldn’t be in Week 1 fantasy lineups. His availability does make WR Wan’Dale Robinson a riskier bet.

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 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.
