Giants RB Saquon Barkley was the team’s lone standout in Monday’s loss to Dallas, rushing 14 times for 81 yards and 1 score. The highlight was a 36-yard scoring dash that showcased his speed and vision. Barkley added 4 grabs for 45 yards, although his 10.8% target share disappointed a bit. Still, through 3 games, his target share sits at nearly 18%. With Sterling Shepard now done for the year (ACL), that number could rise for Barkley. Next up is a home game vs. Chicago.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard tore his left ACL at the end of Monday night's loss to the Cowboys and will miss the rest of the season. It's an especially tough blow for a guy who just came back from a December Achilles' tear and was leading a disappointing Giants WR corps. Shepard's injury helps the opportunity for Kadarius Toney, if the 2nd-year wideout can get healthy and get his stuff together. Otherwise, it's David Sills V, Richie James and the ghost of Kenny Golladay. We'll see about Shepard's status heading into 2023, which will be his age-30 season.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard left late in the 4th quarter of Monday night's loss to the Cowboys after injuring his left knee. It was a non-contact injury, and Shepard left the field on a cart. This doesn't look good for a guy coming off a December Achilles' tendon tear.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. He'd been listed as doubtful, so no surprise here. Sterling Shepard, David Sills and Richie James are the favorites to lead Giants WRs in snaps tonight.

Giants EDGE players Azeez Ojulari (calf) and Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Cowboys. It will be the 1st game for each this season after their injuries kept them out the 1st 2 weeks. Their returns are bound to help the Giants defense over the long run. We'll see about how immediately effective each young player is off the multi-week injury.

Giants EDGE players Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) and Azeez Ojulari (calf) are questionable for Monday night’s game against the Cowboys. Both told ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan that they expect to play in what would be the 1st game this year for each

Giants DL Leonard Williams (knee) is doubtful for Monday night. His absence can only be good news for Dallas' RBs.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Cowboys with a hamstring injury. That plus WR Wan'Dale Robinson's absence figure to keep David Sills and Sterling Shepard leading a WR corps with plenty of other remaining questions.

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 DL Leonard Williams suffered an MCL sprain in his right knee in Sunday's win over the Panthers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams reportedly "may miss time, but it's not expected to be much." It seems we should expect Williams to miss at least the Week 3 game, but we'll watch for updates.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley took a step back in Week 2, totaling 21 carries for 72 yards and 3 catches for 16 yards. Surprisingly, 65 of his rushing yards came in the 2nd half alone. The Giants fired off a whopping 70 plays but scored only 1 TD against Carolina. Barkley could have had a massive receiving day, as he led all Week 2 RBs with 34 routes run. He tallied just 4 targets, though, despite New York’s issues at WR. Continue to ride Barkley as an RB1 for a Monday night tilt vs. Dallas.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard totaled only 34 yards on 6 catches in a Week 2 win over Carolina. He paced the team with 10 targets and now owns a ~25% target share through 2 games. The results weren’t great this week, but it’s impressive to see him playing full-time snaps after the 2021 Achilles tear. Recall that the veteran was only activated from the PUP list on August 24. While we might see him round into form in the coming weeks, it’s still tough to get excited about anyone alongside Daniel Jones.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney caught 2 of 3 targets for 0 yards in Week 2. Toney did have a 36-yard deep ball called back, but his usage remained underwhelming. The Florida product ran only 17 routes on 43 dropbacks from Daniel Jones. (And that was with Wan'Dale Robinson sidelined due to a knee injury.) Next up is a Monday night game vs. Dallas.

11:30am EDT 9/18/22

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. We’ll see if he can top the 7 snaps he played in the opener, but Toney is nowhere near a viable Week 2 fantasy play.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Panthers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's listed as questionable after popping up on the injury report on Thursday. Toney, of course, played 7 snaps in the opener and shouldn't be anywhere near Week 2 starting lineups.

Giants EDGE starters Azeez Ojulari (calf) and Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The defense will also be without #2 CB Aaron Robinson (appendicitis).

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again on Friday. Toney, of course, wasn't a viable Week 2 fantasy option even before this hamstring injury popped up.

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 Kadarius Toney was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. That usually means the player was hurt in practice. We'll get another update on Toney's status tomorrow, but he shouldn't be in your Week 2 fantasy plans after playing just 7 snaps in the opener.

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.
