Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Martinez has topped 140 tackles in 4 straight seasons, including a 2020 that found him landing with a new team in free agency. That 1st year with the Giants also found Martinez earning the best Pro Football Focus grade of his career.

The Giants have Martinez doing all the same things he did in delivering consistently strong fantasy production with the Packers. And he even cut down on missed tackles in 2020.

Martinez is still just 27 and heading into Year 2 of a 3-year contract. As long as a camp-opening stint on the COVID list doesn't bring any lingering effects. We so no reason to expect anything different from him in 2021.

Giants LB Blake Martinez tore his left ACL in Sunday's loss to the Falcons and will miss the rest of the season. That leaves Tae Crowder as the apparent top LB. He played 61 of 62 defensive snaps against Atlanta and led the team with 11 tackles (plus a pass defensed). Reggie Ragland came on for 65% playing time. The Giants might also consider altering S Jabrill Peppers' role, with Martinez down. Peppers has seen his playing time sag amid struggles in coverage, but he would offer above-average speed at LB and spent a season at the position at the end of college. Martinez will still be just 28 when next season begins, but his contract plus the injury could leave the Giants with an offseason decision to make. The final year on his deal carries a $14.2 million cap hit, according to Spotrac, vs. $5.5 million in dead money if New York trades or releases Martinez.

Giants LB Blake Martinez went down early in the 1st quarter of Sunday’s game against the Falcons with a knee injury. The team has ruled him out for the game, which does not bode well beyond this week. We’ll watch for the official diagnosis

The Giants have activated LB Blake Martinez off the COVID list. We'll watch for any sign that Martinez is feeling after-effects, but he should be good to go for IDP usage. The team also placed LB Todd Davis on the reserve/retired list. The Giants had just signed Davis late last week.

The Giants have placed LB Blake Martinez on the COVID list, ostensibly for a positive test upon his reporting to training camp. We'll see how soon Martinez returns to action, but we don't expect this to affect his 2021 IDP outlook.

Giants LB Blake Martinez is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He missed practice Wednesday and Friday, surrounding a limited Thursday workout -- after leaving last week's win over the Seahawks with a back injury. If Martinez is out, LB Tae Crowder gains IDP upside.
