Darius Slayton Injury Updates

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. With CB Jimmy Smith also out, it looks like Anthony Averett and Tramon Williams joining Marlon Humphrey as Baltimore's top 3 corners. The situation adds upside to Giants WR Darius Slayton, who has seen 17 targets over the past 2 weeks and sits at his cheapest DraftKings price of the season. Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is active. He finished the week with his 1st full practice since suffering his calf injury way back in Week 9. So Campbell should be in for more playing time than he has seen the past 2 games following his return. That makes him an IDP lineup candidate for the 1st time in a while and stands as bad news for the Giants' run game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones is expected to miss time with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better idea of the severity of the injury. Rapoport hears that Jones might end up missing just 1 game. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but look for QB Colt McCoy to start vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

Giants WR Darius Slayton suffered a shoulder injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Eagles. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Slayton returned in the 2nd quarter.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (foot) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. Slayton played through this injury last week, but we saw him limping a couple of times. Don't expect him to be at 100% vs. Philly.

The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.

Giants WR Darius Slayton (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report. He got banged up last week and only ended up playing just 29% of the offensive snaps. But he should be back in a full-time role this Sunday and is an upside WR3 in a plus matchup vs. the Eagles.

The Giants did not put in an actual practice Wednesday, but they had to estimate an injury report. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports that the team listed WR Darius Slayton as limited with a knee injury that chopped his playing time in last week's win at Washington. Slayton did return to that game, and we'd bet on him facing the Eagles this week. But we've got him ranked 3rd among Giants WRs and will watch his progress through the week.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) isn't expected to play, either, leaving Kaden Smith as New York's lead TE. He's not a fantasy option. The TE injuries should push more targets to the WRs and RB Saquon Barkley.

Giants WR Corey Coleman will miss the entire 2019 season after tearing his ACL in Thursday's practice. The former 1st-rounder was the favorite for #3 duties but will now hit free agency in 2020 coming off a serious injury. Rookie Darius Slayton, Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard will now duke it out for that #3 WR job. None is worth a pick in fantasy drafts.
