Giants LB Alec Ogletree (back) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He's a lower-level IDP option. CB Sam Beal (shoulder) is inactive, leaving an already terrible secondary without a starter. Slot CB Corey Ballentine (back) is active after arriving questionable.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Packers with a 2nd-quarter concussion. It's his 1st documented concussion.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report. He got banged up last week and only ended up playing just 29% of the offensive snaps. But he should be back in a full-time role this Sunday and is an upside WR3 in a plus matchup vs. the Eagles.

The Giants did not put in an actual practice Wednesday, but they had to estimate an injury report. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports that the team listed WR Darius Slayton as limited with a knee injury that chopped his playing time in last week's win at Washington. Slayton did return to that game, and we'd bet on him facing the Eagles this week. But we've got him ranked 3rd among Giants WRs and will watch his progress through the week.

Giants TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. With TE Evan Engram (foot) on IR, lead duties will again fall to TE Kaden Smith. The rookie has averaged 5.5 targets, 4 catches and 33.5 yards over the past 4 weeks. He's a low-upside spot-start option in PPR leagues.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) will start this weekend's game against the Redskins, HC Pat Shurmur confirmed on Friday. Washington's secondary is extremely banged up -- and it wasn't a great pass defense to begin with. But Jones has been an extremely volatile fantasy producer this season, so consider him a risk/reward QB2 in season-long leagues and a DFS tournament play.

Giants TE Evan Engram will undergo surgery on Friday to stabilize a tendon in his foot, he said. Engram added that he'll be "more than ready" for training camp. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was working with the starters in Wednesday's practice, according to insider Ralph Vacchiano. That suggests the team expects its rookie to return for this weekend's game against the Redskins. Jones posted a 225-1-2 passing line with 33 rushing yards vs. Washington back in Week 4 -- his 2nd career start. It's possible that his rushing ability is limited in the rematch coming off that high-ankle sprain.

The Giants have placed TE Evan Engram (foot) on IR, ending his 2019 campaign. He's averaged an impressive 4.5 catches and 52 yards per game over his first 3 NFL seasons but has now missed 14 of a possible 48 games. Engram will be a risk/reward pick in 2020 fantasy football drafts. Rookie Kaden Smith will close out this season as New York's lead TE.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. QB Eli Manning gets another start and is a low-end spot-start option vs. Miami's 29th-ranked QB defense.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That again leaves lead TE duties to Kaden Smith, who's averaged 6.3 targets over the past 3 weeks. He's a low-end spot-start option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) isn't expected to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to insider Art Stapleton. "Sprained foot is just not coming along fast enough to return yet. Zero sense to rush + risk further injury," Stapleton tweeted. We'll see if TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) makes it back for Sunday's game. If not, Kaden Smith will again serve as New York's lead TE.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He put in 2 limited practices last week before missing Monday night's game against the Eagles. His status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is up in the air.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was back on the practice field on Wednesday. ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that the rookie was working with the 2nd-team offense, though -- an indication that the Giants are still planning to start QB Eli Manning vs. Miami this weekend. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Giants QB Daniel Jones' high-ankle sprain is expected to cost him 2-4 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie will miss tonight's game against the Eagles and Week 15 against the Dolphins. We'll see if he makes it back for the final 2 games vs. the Redskins and Eagles. If QB Eli Manning shows reasonably well tonight, he could be a deeper-league option in that Miami matchup.

The Giants have placed S Jabrill Peppers (back) on IR, ending his season. That likely locks in Julian Love as the starter in Peppers’ place the rest of the way. He played nearly every snap in the first game following Peppers’ injury

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. He didn't practice all week and should be considered iffy for Week 15 vs. Miami. QB Eli Manning will be back under center on Monday but is just a lower-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. That means another game as lead TE for Kaden Smith, who's totaled 14 targets, 11 catches, 87 yards and a score over the last 2 weeks.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It's his 1st practice of any kind since going down back in Week 9. Engram expects to play against the Eagles on Monday night, but we'd feel better about getting him back in fantasy lineups if he gets in a full practice on Friday and/or Saturday.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) told reporters that he expects to return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. We'll track his practice participation over the next few days. The foot issue will add some risk to Engram's Week 14 fantasy outlook, but note that he racked up 22 targets, 17 catches and 164 yards in 2 games with QB Eli Manning to open the season.
