Giants WR Richie James hauled in 7 of 10 targets for 51 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round loss vs. the Eagles. No other Giants pass-catcher recorded more than 2 receptions in this contest. The Giants' WR corps stands out as a weak spot on their roster when looking back on the season and is likely to look very different in 2023. It's tough to project anyone's future on this roster beyond WR Wan'Dale Robinson, the rookie who saw his season derailed by multiple knee injuries. On top of that, we also don't know if QB Daniel Jones will re-sign with the team. The resurgent, HC Brian Daboll-led Giants will be a fascinating team to follow this offseason as they look to capitalize on this season's success.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley recorded 9 carries for 61 yards and 2 catches for 21 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round loss vs. the Eagles. Though the Giants' season ended in a disappointing fashion, Barkley has a lot to be happy about entering free agency this offseason. The Pro Bowl back played in 16 games for the 1st time since his rookie season in 2018 and set a career-high in rushing yards (1,312) in 2022. The soon-to-be 26-year-old will be a dynamic fantasy asset regardless of what team he suits up for in 2023 and beyond. He said after Saturday's game that “everyone knows I want to be a Giant for life," taking away any potential mystery around his intentions. We'll see if his desire to return to New York comes to fruition in the coming weeks.

Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 15 of 27 attempts for 135 passing yards with 1 INT in Saturday's Divisional Round loss vs. the Eagles. He also added 24 yards on 9 carries in the ground game. The former 1st round pick is set to become a free agent this offseason after recording the most productive season as a pro. Jones set a career-high in passing yards (3,205) and rushing yards (708) in 2022. When asked about returning to the team, Jones said he'll "cross that bridge when we get there. I’ve really enjoyed playing here. I appreciate all those guys in the locker room. It’s a special group of guys. And I really enjoyed being a part of it," in post-game interviews. His future will be one of great intrigue this offseason.

Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday and doesn't carry an official injury designation for Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. Despite being weighed down by his ankle injury last week vs. the Vikings, Hodgins led the Giants in receiving with an 8-105-1 stat line. The Eagles' defense ranks 10th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs and will be a much tougher draw. Still, Hodgins ranks 1st on the Giants in target share (26.5%) and air yards share (36.4%) over their last 4 games, including the Wild Card round. We feel good about his chances regardless of the matchup.

Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion again on Wednesday ahead of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. Hodgins shared a photo on his Instagram story following the team's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings that shows how busted up his ankle is. We'll leave it up to you if you want to look it up and find the picture. The point is that it certainly doesn't look great, though he did manage to play through it this past Sunday. Check back tomorrow for updates regarding the young wideout's status.

Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Tuesday in advance of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. The second-year wideout has been a significant contributor to the Giants' offense for several weeks now, so a potential absence from him would leave quite a void. We'll keep tabs on his health as news unfolds in the coming days.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Giants held long-term contract talks with RB Saquon Barkley during the season. Per Rapoport, the team wants Barkley and Daniel Jones to return for 2023. (No surprise there.) The franchise tag remains likely to be used on 1 of those guys. Per Spotrac, New York currently has the 3rd most cap-space league-wide (~54$ million).

Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins led all pass-catchers in receiving with 8 receptions on 9 targets with 105 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings. Fellow WR Darius Slayton hauled in 4 of his 8 targets for 88 yards. This duo of WRs performed admirably for fantasy purposes but will face a considerably stricter matchup next week vs. the Eagles. The Eagles rank as the 10th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs this season.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley totaled 9 carries for 53 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's Wild Card win vs. the Giants. The savvy vet also caught 5 passes on 6 targets for 56 yards as a receiver in the contest. Fantasy managers who pegged the Giants as an upset victor with Barkley in their playoff lineups are feeling pretty good about themselves after this one. Up next for Barkley and the Giants is a showdown vs. an Eagles defense that ranks as the 13th-best matchup for RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season.

Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 24 of 35 passes for 301 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings. The fourth-year QB also led the team in rushing, tallying 78 yards on 17 carries on the ground. This remarkable performance from Jones will be worth keeping in the back of fantasy managers' minds when filling out DFS lineups moving forward in this NFL postseason. Jones is building a strong case for a sizeable contract as he approaches free agency.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Eagles. QB Daniel Jones is active but isn't expected to play in this game that means nothing to New York.

Giants QB Davis Webb is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Eagles, according to insider Ryan Dunleavy. It's confirmation that the Giants will be resting starters in a game that means nothing to them. Don't expect QB Daniel Jones or RB Saquon Barkley to play. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James also figure to be held out or limited.

The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy reports that the Giants are expected to sit "key starters" in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Eagles. New York is locked into the NFC's #6 seed and has nothing to play for. We've been projecting QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley to sit all week. Look for QB Tyrod Taylor to get the start and for RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell to handle backfield duties. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James could also be held out or be pulled early in Sunday's game.

Giants DL Leonard Williams left Sunday's win over the Colts with a neck injury. He missed time earlier this season with a neck issue. We'll keep an eye on this one to see his Week 18 status. Don't be surprised if he sits, though, with a playoff berth sewed up.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley carried just 12 times for 58 yards (4.8 per rush) in Sunday's lopsided win over the Colts. He added 2 catches for minus-5 yards among 4 targets. It was a disappointing finish to the fantasy season for a guy who entered the week 5th among RBs in PPR points per game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 177 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's 38-10 beatdown of the Colts. He added 91 yards and 2 more scores on the ground. Jones hit WR Richie James and WR Isaiah Hodgins for TDs. James caught all 7 of his team-high 7 targets for a team-leading 76 yards. Hodgins ranked 2nd on the team in targets (5) and receptions (4), totaling 42 yards. TE Daniel Bellinger (3-42) was the only other Giant to catch more than 2 passes. This was Jones' 1st game all season with more than 2 total TDs. The Giants clinched a playoff spot with the victory. We'll see what they have to play for in a Week 18 visit to the Eagles.

Giants EDGE Azeez Ojulari (ankle) and S Xavier McKinney (hand) are active for today's game against the Colts. Both carry IDP upside against a struggling offense. McKinney sits higher in our Week 17 IDP rankings, at their respective positions.

The Giants are activating S Xavier McKinney from IR ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts, and he's expected to play, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. That's a shift vs. Friday, when HC Brian Daboll said he didn't expect McKinney to return. The safety has been out since suffering a hand injury in a 4-weeler accident during the team's Week 9 bye. We'll watch for further word on McKinney's role against Indy, but we've already added him to the Week 17 IDP rankings for a high-upside matchup.

Giants EDGE Azeez Ojulari left Saturday's loss to the Vikings with an ankle injury and was ruled out before the end of the game. He said post-game X-rays came back negative, though. Ojulari said he was "sore" but that he hoped to be ready for the Week 17 meeting with the Colts. We'll see about his status this week.

Giants QB Daniel Jones threw for 334 yards and a TD (plus an INT) in Saturday's loss to the Vikings. It marked just the 2nd time all year that Jones reached 300 yards, in just his 2nd game with 40+ passing attempts. Jones added 34 yards rushing on just 4 attempts. His lone TD throw went to WR Isaiah Hodgins, 1 of 3 Giants with 8 receptions.
