The Giants released WR Golden Tate, saving a little over $6 million against the 2021 salary cap. Tate is coming off a tumultuous 2020 season, missing Week 1 for a performance-enhancing drug suspension and later getting benched for a game after publicly complaining about his role. He finished with a 35-388-2 line and turns 33 in August. We'll see where Tate lands, but he's not a great bet for a big 2021 fantasy impact. His departure from The Big Apple frees up opportunity for Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram -- although we'll have to see what other moves the Giants make this offseason.
Giants WR Golden Tate (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. His absence gives WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton slight boosts in projected targets.
Giants QB Daniel Jones sprained his ankle in the 2nd quarter of last week's loss to the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is also still dealing with a bum hamstring and is "in doubt" for Sunday night's game vs. the Browns, per Rapoport. Jones' absence would put Colt McCoy back under center for the G-Men. Hopefully you can avoid this passing game in fantasy lineups.
Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game in Seattle. He’s not going to play, leaving Colt McCoy under center. It’s a downgrade for the entire Giants offense.
Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to miss time with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better idea of the severity of the injury. Rapoport hears that Jones might end up missing just 1 game. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but look for QB Colt McCoy to start vs. the Seahawks this weekend.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is active for tonight's game against the Eagles. It'll be his 1st action since Week 2. Shepard is a low-upside fantasy play in New York's struggling offense.
The Newark Star-Ledger's Zack Rosenblatt believes Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is "unlikely" to play against Washington on Sunday. He's eligible to come off IR this week, but a Week 7 return looks more likely. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram will continue to operate as the top 3 options in the Giants' passing game.
The Giants expect WR Sterling Shepard to return to practice this week, according to the team's official website. Shepard missed the past 3 games with a toe injury. HC Joe Judge said he wants to see Shepard practice before determining whether the wideout will be ready to come off IR for Sunday's game against Washington. We'll watch his progress. Even if Shepard doesn't play in Week 6, he's worth a look as a potential Week 6 waiver pickup in leagues that saw him dropped.
The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard came away from Sunday's loss to the Bears with turf toe. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he's expected to miss at least this week's clash with the 49ers. Shepard's return timeline beyond that is not yet clear.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a toe injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He hobbled off to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.
The Giants will hire Joe Judge as their next HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an out-of-nowhere move. Judge spent the past 8 seasons in New England -- the first 7 as a special teams coach and 2019 as the WRs coach. Prior to that, he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. At just 38 years old, he's now the league's 2nd-youngest HC. Frankly, that's about all we know about Judge at this point. We'll see who he tabs as his OC.
The Giants will fire HC Pat Shurmur, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Shurmur compiled a 9-23 record in 2 seasons at the helm in New York. We'll see who the G-Men tab as their next HC. They have an excellent core on offense with QB Daniel Jones, RB Saquon Barkley, WRs Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram.
The forecast for today's Packers-Giants game calls for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. Winds are expected to come in at 10-20 mph. Aaron Rodgers and Co. are used to this type of weather. But Daniel Jones told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that he's never played in snow. Keep that in mind when making lineup decisions.
Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He leaves behind 8.1 targets per game. With TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) also out, there's a lot of volume to go around for WR Sterling Shepard, WR, Darius Slayton, RB Saquon Barkley and TE Kaden Smith.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Bears. Consider Shepard a WR3 in what's a tough spot for the Giants offense.
