Bottom Line

Slayton’s tallied between 724 and 770 yards in four of the past five seasons.

His upside takes a hit this year with the arrival of Malik Nabers. Plus, QB play remains a question with Daniel Jones returning from an ACL tear.

We’re not eager to draft Slayton in the later rounds.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Slayton led the Giants in targets (79) and receiving yards (770). He tied for the team lead in TDs (4).
    • He benefited from a barren WR corps and several missed games from Darren Waller.
    • But Slayton also endured horrible QB play. New York QBs combined for 15 passing TDs and 197 passing yards per game.
  • Slayton hit 50 yards in eight of 17 games.
    • He simply wasn’t consistent enough to use in standard-size fantasy leagues. Slayton finished worse than WR36 in 10 weeks.
  • Slayton set a career-high in catch rate (65.8%) while tallying a healthy 15.4 yards per catch.
    • His 1.38 yards per route run fell in line with his career average.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Slayton stayed away from the team’s offseason program… until agreeing to a restructured contract.
    • His new deal calls for an extra $650K in incentives, per ESPN’s Field Yates.
    • "I'm satisfied,” Slayton said this spring. “We got done what we needed to get done and just looking forward to playing ball," Slayton said. "We just adjusted my contract this year a little bit. Just tried to make it a little bit more lucrative. Business is business and I'm here."
  • He’s set to play more of a secondary role this fall.
    • The Giants added dynamic WR Malik Nabers with a top-10 pick. He projects for a healthy target share right away.
    • Darren Waller retired. His absence removes 74 targets (12 games).
    • The Giants return Wan'Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt. Robinson’s locked into a slot role. Hyatt’s a wildcard as a vertical, outside WR.
  • Daniel Jones returns for year three alongside HC Brian Daboll and OC Mike Kafka.
    • Coming off a November ACL tear, Jones is expected to return for Week 1.

Daniel Jones, QB NYG

8:36am EDT 6/28/24

Brian Daboll Likely To Take Over Play-Calling For Giants

Giants HC Brian Daboll has been calling plays on offense so far this offseason, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. OC Mike Kafka handled those duties over the past two years. The team hasn't officially announced the change, but it looks like it'll be Daboll at the controls this season.

Giants QB Tyrod Taylor will start this weekend's game vs. the Rams, HC Brian Daboll said. Taylor played reasonably well in relief of QB Tommy DeVito in Philadelphia on Monday, throwing for 133 yards, one TD, and one INT in the second half. He completed 64% of his passes at 7.4 yards per attempt with two TDs and 0 INTs in starts against the Bills and Commanders earlier this season. Taylor is just a low-end QB2 for Week 17, but he should bring more stability to the offense than DeVito.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (neck) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. He was listed as doubtful, but his neck injury improved over the last 24 hours, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Slayton is coming off a 4-82-1 line vs. the Commanders but isn’t a great fantasy bet today in a much tougher matchup against New England.

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.

Dynasty Write-up
Once the subject of trade rumors, Slayton re-emerged in 2022. The Giants rewarded him with a 2-year deal (~$5 million guaranteed) in 2023. We expect him to return in 2024 as a starter on the outside, but QB concerns remain.
