The Chiefs signed WR Richie James. Turning 28 in September, James set career highs across the board with the Giants last year, snagging 57 balls for 569 yards and four TDs. He ranked a respectable 36th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade and 37th in yards per route run among 80 qualifying WRs. This is about as strong a fantasy landing spot James could have hoped for -- alongside Patrick Mahomes and with only Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to battle with for snaps as of now. We'll see if the draft brings more competition to the WR room.
Chiefs WR Richie James was the standout of Sunday's training camp practice. HC Andy Reid noted that James has picked up the offense quickly after working with former Chiefs QBs coach and current Giants OC Mike Kafka in New York last year. "So he didn't have to go through and learn everything here," Reid said. "Just maybe a few new things, and I like what I've seen from him. He's a good football player, has a great feel for things." James is coming off a career-best 57-569-4 line with the Giants last year and has the opportunity to carve out a real role in a wide-open Chiefs WR corps.
Giants WR Richie James hauled in 7 of 10 targets for 51 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round loss vs. the Eagles. No other Giants pass-catcher recorded more than 2 receptions in this contest. The Giants' WR corps stands out as a weak spot on their roster when looking back on the season and is likely to look very different in 2023. It's tough to project anyone's future on this roster beyond WR Wan'Dale Robinson, the rookie who saw his season derailed by multiple knee injuries. On top of that, we also don't know if QB Daniel Jones will re-sign with the team. The resurgent, HC Brian Daboll-led Giants will be a fascinating team to follow this offseason as they look to capitalize on this season's success.
The Giants WRs are nothing to write home about in the aftermath of Sunday's win vs. the Commanders. Giants WR Richie James led all pass-catchers with 42 yards, hauling in 4 of 5 targets. Isaiah Hodgins was not far behind with 4 receptions and 37 yards. Darius Slayton also participated in the game and hauled in 5 of his 7 targets for 23 yards. Even with a plus-matchup on the horizon against a Vikings defense that presents the 2nd-best matchup for WRs this season, fantasy managers should not be champing at the bit to roll out any of these WRs in Week 16 lineups. James, Slayton, and Hodgins are nothing more than deep-league flex/WR4 options.
Giants WR Richie James has cleared concussion protocol and will play vs. the Commanders on Sunday night. He caught 3 of 3 targets for 20 yards against Washington a couple of weeks ago. He's a basement-level PPR option.
Giants WR Richie James (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Commanders. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so he’s seemingly on track to be cleared and play. James, of course, is just a low-upside play in PPR leagues. He caught 3 balls for 20 yards against Washington a couple of weeks ago.
