Shark Bites

The Giants selected Tennessee WR Jalin Hyatt in Round 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft. Hyatt won the 2022 Biletnikoff Award as the top receiver in college football, compiling 1,267 yards and 15 TDs on 67 receptions. That’s a huge 18.9 yards per catch. And this dude can fly. Hyatt clocked a 4.40-second 40 time at the Combine and plays even faster, routinely running by SEC CBs. He also possesses underrated ball skills and a large catch radius. Now, Tennessee’s up-tempo, spread offense regularly put Hyatt in favorable situations. He has a significant transition to make to an NFL-style offense. It’s also worth noting that Hyatt totaled just 502 receiving yards over his first 2 NFL seasons and is slenderly built at 6’0, 176 pounds. We like Hyatt’s chances of emerging as a legit big-play threat for the Giants. But he might lack the size, physicality, and route-running acumen to become the focal point of an NFL passing game. We'll see how the Giants plan to deploy him. The lackluster WR corps presents opportunity as soon as Hyatt's able to prove he's ready. Check out Hyatt's initial projection in our 2023 fantasy football WR rankings.

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt has been ruled out of Sunday's finale vs. the Eagles with a hamstring injury. He caught one of two targets for five yards before exiting and finishes his rookie campaign with 368 scoreless yards. Hyatt was considered a project coming out of Tennessee, so his development will be worth watching closely this offseason. He's a dynasty hold.

The Giants’ offense didn’t have to do much to eke out a 10-7 win over the Patriots in Week 12. There isn’t a ton to dig into from this game, but rookie WR Jalin Hyatt deserves recognition. He hauled in 5 of his team-high 6 targets for 109 receiving yards on Sunday. The rookie saw a decent chunk of that yardage come on an early 41-yard bomb, but it’s worth highlighting a few things about his performance. Hyatt recorded his highest route participation rate (75.7%) since Week 6 and saw a target on 19.2% of his routes. In the three games he’s seen a greater than 66% route participation, Hyatt is averaging 68.3 receiving yards and 10.2 PPR points per game. It’s not a lot of information to go off of, but he’s shown a propensity for netting big yards when he’s involved more than two-thirds of the time. Headed into their bye week, Hyatt is a name for dynasty managers or those in deeper season-long formats to pay some attention to as an under-the-radar acquisition target.

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt has cleared the concussion protocol and will be available for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. The rookie has just two catches over the last three weeks and isn’t a viable fantasy play with QB Tommy DeVito under center.

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt sustained a concussion in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. That'll likely knock the rookie out for Week 11's game vs. the Commanders. Hyatt, of course, was not a realistic fantasy play with QB Tommy DeVito.

The Athletic's Dan Duggan reported that Giants WR Jalin Hyatt saw the "most first-team work since being drafted" by the team on Friday. The Giants selected the 2022 Biletnikoff Award winner out of Tennessee with the 73rd pick of the 2023 NFL Draft in hopes of bolstering a less-than-stellar WR room. This news comes on the heels of Hyatt leaving practice early on Wednesday due to what the team called "heat-related reasons." Considering only one wideout (Darius Slayton) exceeded 600 yards receiving last season, the Giants will need all the help they can get. HC Brian Daboll spoke about Hyatt, saying that it's "up to him to go out there and show what he can do," and that each player will have to "will earn their role" in the offense. Sure, it's just coach speak, but seeing Hyatt out there earning reps with the first-team offense this early on is a great sign. We'll keep an eye on his progress as training camp unfolds.
