Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 11
Toney caught 7 balls for 40 yards after being targeted a game-high 12 times in the Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers. He also attempted a pass that could’ve gone for defensive pass interference. Toney was elusive and electric every time he touched the ball, and was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dreary offensive attack for the Giants.
It was clear in the game plan to get Toney the ball a variety of different ways, and he showcased some eye-popping agility. Unfortunately it didn’t translate into much as he was contained all evening. If he can remain healthy, the Giants have a serious weapon on their hands. He will look to continue his growth in the offense at home against the Eagles this week.
Week 9
Toney caught just one ball for 9 yards, but was also tackled behind the line of scrimmage on a run. He was also sacked on a gadget play gone awry in the only action Toney saw with the ball. He was more a victim of the game flow as the Giants did what they could to salt away the game and play conservatively in the 2nd half. This is clearly a disappointing performance for Toney owners, but these types of games are prone to happen with an unproven team like the Giants. There is no question Toney has insane abilities, and he will surely continue to be a part of the offensive scheme, but he’s too volatile to trust on a regular basis. And with other pass catchers and RB Saquon Barkley getting healthy over the Week 10 bye week, Toney’s role may change a bit. Still, he's clearly a "hold" right now.
Week 8
Toney finished Monday night’s game with 4 receptions for 26 yards and threw an 18-yard pass to WR Sterling Shepard on a trick play. Toney’s 5 targets ranked 3rd on the team for the game behind Shepard and RB Devontae Booker.

Toney started a little slow in the offense but stepped up for a cluster of catches after Shepard left with a quad injury. Toney showed some serious wiggle on his 11-yard reception as he maneuvered through the Chiefs defense to get a 1st down. Toney left for a stretch with his own injury but returned.

A home date with the Raiders in Week 9 gives him another chance to shine, especially with Shepard likely to miss further time and Kenny Golladay not yet back as of this writing.
Week 6
Toney caught 3 balls on the opening drive before leaving with a nagging ankle injury that had him questionable all week. He went to the locker room almost immediately and was ruled out after his 36 yards. The Giants later converted a FG on the opening drive, but it all went downhill from there.
Toney’s injury clearly took the wind out of the sails of the Giants offense. The Rams ripped off 38 straight points after that drive, and QB Daniel Jones looked lost. Toney has definitely made a massive impression as an impact player and the already stale Giants offense cannot afford to have him miss any time. If Toney suits up, he would line up against a Panthers defense that just allowed nearly 300 yards and 2 TDs passing to Vikings wideouts. If he doesn’t play, he could join fellow Giants WRs Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton on the shelf.
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).

WRs Darius Slayton, John Ross and Collin Johnson are also out, leaving Pharoh Cooper, David Sills and Alex Bachman behind Kenny Golladay on the WR depth chart. Golladay still isn’t a bankable fantasy play with Jake Fromm or Mike Glennon under center.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (oblique) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. It’ll be the rookie’s first action since Week 11 after dealing with a couple of different injuries and a trip to the COVID list. Especially with QB Jake Fromm making his 1st start, Toney is a shaky fantasy play.
