Giants EDGE Azeez Ojulari (ankle) and S Xavier McKinney (hand) are active for today's game against the Colts. Both carry IDP upside against a struggling offense. McKinney sits higher in our Week 17 IDP rankings, at their respective positions.
Giants EDGE Azeez Ojulari left Saturday's loss to the Vikings with an ankle injury and was ruled out before the end of the game. He said post-game X-rays came back negative, though. Ojulari said he was "sore" but that he hoped to be ready for the Week 17 meeting with the Colts. We'll see about his status this week.
The Giants have placed EDGE Azeez Ojulari on IR after he suffered a setback with his calf injury this week, according to ESPN's Jordan Ranaan. The 2nd-year player had already missed the previous 2 games. He'll now sit out for at least the next 4. Edge players Oshane Ximines and Jihad Ward stand to benefit from Ojulari's absence. Ximines is out for today's game against the Jaguars with a quad injury, which should leave Ward and Kayvon Thibodeaux playing large snap shares. The Giants also plan to play S/LB Landon Collins for the 1st time since signing him ahead of the Week 5 win over the Packers. We'll see how large a role Collins commands amid an evolving LB corps.
OLB Azeez Ojulari has joined the Giants in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Ojulari racked up 9.5 sacks among 12.5 tackles for loss in 10 games last season, adding 4 forced fumbles. Pro Football Focus awarded him the 2nd-highest pass-rushing grade among 325 draft-eligible edge defenders nationally for the season. The Giants have an immediate need at the spot, and Ojulari doesn’t turn 21 until mid-June. He's a high-upside option for dynasty leagues that favor sack/pressure scoring.
