Darius Slayton, WR NYG

Darius Slayton doubtful for Week 12

Giants WR Darius Slayton (neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. He leads Giants WRs in pass routes and targets this season. Slayton’s absence figures to mean more playing time for WRs Jalin Hyatt and Isaiah Hodgins outside the numbers, but neither is a recommended Week 12 fantasy play.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game vs. the Bills. He didn't practice all week, so it's certainly possible that he misses more time. QB Tyrod Taylor will start on Sunday night for the first time since December 2021. Taylor is a serviceable backup but has little chance behind New York's leaky offensive line. We're considering Taylor just a slight downgrade from Jones for New York's pass-catchers.
