The Giants have signed WR Isaiah Hodgins, who was headed for exclusive-rights free agency. Terms weren't immediately announced, but we don't expect big numbers to be involved. The sheer fact that the team re-signed Hodgins before it needed to, however, signals he's part of the 2023 plan as opposed to just a depth player. Hodgins arrived from the Bills in the middle of the 2022 season and closed out the year as a full-timer. He played 80%+ snap share in each of his final five regular-season games -- as well as the playoff win at Minnesota. He also tied for the team lead in TD receptions (4) despite playing just eight regular-season games. Hodgins is an intriguing later-round pick in early 2023 best-ball drafts.
Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday and doesn't carry an official injury designation for Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. Despite being weighed down by his ankle injury last week vs. the Vikings, Hodgins led the Giants in receiving with an 8-105-1 stat line. The Eagles' defense ranks 10th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs and will be a much tougher draw. Still, Hodgins ranks 1st on the Giants in target share (26.5%) and air yards share (36.4%) over their last 4 games, including the Wild Card round. We feel good about his chances regardless of the matchup.
Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion again on Wednesday ahead of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. Hodgins shared a photo on his Instagram story following the team's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings that shows how busted up his ankle is. We'll leave it up to you if you want to look it up and find the picture. The point is that it certainly doesn't look great, though he did manage to play through it this past Sunday. Check back tomorrow for updates regarding the young wideout's status.
Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Tuesday in advance of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Eagles. The second-year wideout has been a significant contributor to the Giants' offense for several weeks now, so a potential absence from him would leave quite a void. We'll keep tabs on his health as news unfolds in the coming days.
Giants WR Isaiah Hodgins led all pass-catchers in receiving with 8 receptions on 9 targets with 105 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's Wild Card win vs. the Vikings. Fellow WR Darius Slayton hauled in 4 of his 8 targets for 88 yards. This duo of WRs performed admirably for fantasy purposes but will face a considerably stricter matchup next week vs. the Eagles. The Eagles rank as the 10th-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs this season.
The Bills added Oregon State WR Isaiah Hodgins in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. This is 1 of our favorite sleepers in the 2020 WR class. Hodgins goes 6’4 and 210 pounds with 82nd percentile arm length. He ran a 4.61-second 40-yard dash at the Combine but registered a 64th percentile vertical, 74th percentile broad jump and 74th percentile short shuttle. Hodgins is a long, lanky receiver who wins at the catch point. He also has some of the best hands in this WR class, dropping just 1.7% of his catchable targets over the past 3 seasons. Hodgins broke out as a sophomore in 2018, leading the Beavers with 59 catches and 876 yards. Then he posted a big 86-1,171-13 line this past year, finishing top 18 in the country in all 3 marks. His 2.69 yards per route run ranked 13th among 30 of this year’s top WR prospects. Hodgins joins fellow rookie Gabriel Davis behind Stefon Diggs, John Brown and Cole Beasley on Buffalo’s WR depth chart. Consider him a deep dynasty stash.
