Slayton set for Week 17 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

The Giants selected Auburn WR Darius Slayton in the 5th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Slayton totaled just 79 grabs over the past 3 seasons but averaged a big 20.3 yards per catch. He confirmed that big-play ability at the Combine by running a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at 6'1 and 190 pounds. We'll see if Slayton can develop into more than just a deep-ball receiver, but that speed will translate to the NFL level. There's opportunity in New York behind WRs Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard.
