New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan has been starting at wide receiver opposite WR Rueben Randle with WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) sidelined. WR Victor Cruz is working out of the slot in three-wide receiver formations. WRs Corey Washington and Preston Parker are the other receivers on the roster.
Huddle Up: Caught between Cruz, Randle and the 2 rookies, Jernigan is the forgotten WR in the Big Apple, but those in deeper leagues shouldn't forget his fast finish last season, recording 19 of his 29 receptions, 237 of his 329 yards and both of his TD catches in the final 3 games.

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan is expected to compete with rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) for a starting spot.
Huddle Up: Beckham is not helping himself by missing time with a hamstring injury. Jernigan has been a solid contributor and offers Eli Manning and the Giants a nice fallback plan.

New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan finished the regular season with a first-half touchdown reception and 49-yard touchdown run in the Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: This might be a preview of things to come for Jernigan in New York. With Hakeem Nicks possibly gone, Jernigan could become the new No. 3 in that offense behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.

New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan (knee) will see more opportunities in the final two regular season games with WR Victor Cruz (knee) done for the season. Randle has already had success this year, scoring six touchdowns through 14 games after scoring three all of last year. He has 37 grabs for 571 yards. Jernigan is questionable for Week 16 against the Detroit Lions but said he was 'feeling all right.' Jernigan, who had seven catches for 57 yards last week, would likely replace Cruz in the slot position.
Huddle Up: Randle is the guy fantasy owners care about this week. The Giants' offense is struggling but with Cruz on IR and Hakeem Nicks all but checked out on this season, Randle is a solid WR3/flex play for Week 16.
