Weekly Writeup
The rookie is dealing with an ankle injury but is on track to play vs. the Rams on Sunday. WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are back for the G-Men -- but WR Kenny Golladay is out. Toney should again see nice volume in this one.

Week 5
His 10 catches in 13 targets gained 189 yards, breaking the Giants’ rookie record for yardage formerly held by WR Odell Beckham Jr. He lined up to take 2 direct snaps, good for a 7-yard run that nearly put the ball in the end zone and an incomplete pass. Veteran WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton already were out, and WR Kenny Golladay caught none of his 3 targets before he too left with an injury. New York tried to set up rookie WR John Ross on deep patterns, but he was of little use with only 1 catch in 5 targets for 13 yards.
Toney won’t be suspended for punching Cowboys S Damontae Kazee in the 4th quarter, which resulted in an ejection that could have been the only obstacle keeping Toney from a 200-yard game. He also had hurt his right ankle. The result of X rays was “iffy,” according to the New York Post’s Steve Serby. Toney is expected to play Sunday against the Rams. Return man C.J. Board was targeted at Dallas 3 times, catching 2 of those passes for just 7 yards. The Giants might try to use his speed on the deeper patterns where Ross didn’t connect.
Week 4
Toney stepped up for a big game, catching 6 balls for 78 yards in the exciting OT win in New Orleans last week. He was targeted a team-high 9 times with injured WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton out. The 1st-round WR even was part of a gadget play where he almost threw a pass, but he decided not to force it.

This is the type of game Giants fans were hoping to see from their new toy. Toney was a menace in college playing for the Gators, but his less-than-impressive preseason and start to the year had many calling him a bust. He should continue to be a big chunk of the Giants offense as long as Shepard and Slayton are out.

He’s worth a pickup in deeper leagues but he needs to put a couple more games together before he’s a trustworthy fantasy starter. That being said, his low price point might make him a flyer target in DFS this week against a Dallas team that has struggled against receivers.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Toney arrived at Florida as a 3-star, dual-threat QB.
  • He managed just 50 catches and 3 total TDs through his first 3 seasons with the Gators. Toney rushed 47 times over the same span, while playing a mere 510 total snaps (according to Pro Football Focus).
  • He finally had a “breakout” season as a 21-year-old senior: 70 receptions, 984 yards, 10 TD catches -- plus 19-161-1 rushing. Toney accounted for 23.6% of Florida’s catches, 23.0% of yards and 22.2% of TD receptions over his 11 games, before opting out of the Cotton Bowl.
  • Toney spent a lot of time in the slot in 2020, tying for 6th nationally in slot receptions and ranking 6th in receiving yards from that position.
  • He had more receptions on screen passes than any other route, according to ESPN.
  • Toney is an elite athlete. He posted elite numbers in the jumps at his pro day: 90th percentile in the vertical and 99th percentile in the broad. Even the downward pro-day adjustment to his 40 time still landed it at 4.43 seconds. That’s good enough for an above-average speed score among WRs. He added an above-average 3-cone time for the position as well.
  • That athleticism shows up in his after-catch ability. Toney evaded 21% of tackle attempts last season, 2nd-best in the SEC, according to Sports Info Solutions.
  • Draft scouts say he’s raw as a route-runner.
  • Toney saw light use in the return game at Florida. He did lead the Gators twice in kick returns but totaled just 15 across his 4 seasons. Toney didn’t serve as the lead punt returner until his senior season, when he averaged 12.6 yards and scored 1 TD across 11 returns.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Toney’s physical gifts are easy to see if you watch his college tape. He can be a breathtaking runner with the ball in his hands. The rookie undoubtedly has some exciting plays ahead of him. There are 2 key questions, though:

  1. Can he turn into a consistent enough contributor to be worth starting in fantasy?
  2. If so, how soon could we expect that?

It’s worrisome that the Gators couldn’t find a way to regularly involve Toney before his senior season, though injuries played some role in that. And even when he broke out, Toney lived off short stuff. We’d bet the Giants will try to create touches for their 1st-round pick as soon as he’s ready. But we’re also not betting he finds big touch volume this season (if ever).

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) practiced on Wednesday. He should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. His fantasy value will hinge on whether QB Daniel Jones can get cleared from his concussion in time to play.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney came away from Sunday's game with an ankle injury that complicates his Week 6 outlook.

Judge reportedly added that it might keep him out of Sunday's game against the Rams. Toney played through the issue en route to his big game in Dallas. We'll see what this week brings.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney is not expected to be suspended for throwing a punch near the end of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Toney was ejected from that game, putting an end to a breakout performance. The rookie posted a big 10-189 line on 13 targets. He has 16 catches on 22 targets over the past 2 weeks. WRs Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are all currently dealing with injuries. But even when they're all healthy, Toney should remain a big part of this Giants passing game.

Giants HC Joe Judge said WR Kadarius Toney aggravated an injury at the end of this past week. Judge wouldn't disclose the injury or give a timetable for Toney's return. It's the latest setback for the rookie, who has had an eventful last few months. Toney is a long shot for fantasy value at least early on this season.
