Daniel Fells - TEPosted 8/26/14 12:13am ET
The New York Giants may use a committee approach with their tight ends this season based on different situations, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'I really think that there'll be a group of guys that'll play that'll help us in different situations and will be matched up according to the circumstance,' Coughlin said. 'I think that's where it's going to go. I think there's a lot of roles for that spot.' TEs Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Kellen Davis are expected to make the final roster, but no starter has been named.
Huddle Up: Unlike past seasons when you could bank on a Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss, Martellus Bennett or Jake Ballard to provide a fantasy lift, there's no one in this motley quartet that comes close to that profile. So stay away, especially considering the passing-game struggles the team has had this preseason.
Josh Brown - PKPosted 8/26/14 10:08am ET
New York Giants PK Josh Brown won the team's starting kicker job.
Huddle Up: Until the Giants' offense demonstrates a grasp of the new scheme, and subsequently an ability to consistently score points, Brown is a fantasy afterthought at best.
Geoff Schwartz - OTPosted 8/26/14 10:08am ET
Updating previous reports, New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) will not require surgery and is week to week.
Huddle Up: The Giants could use a little good news, and keeping free agent signee Schwartz in the lineup is certainly that.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 8/25/14 8:01pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the rest of the starters will play around 15 to 18 snaps in the team's preseason finale against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: No surprise as the preseason has been a struggle for Eli and the Giants' offense. Manning has completed only 51.4 percent of his passes and just threw his first scoring toss in 4 games last week.
Daniel Fells - TEPosted 8/22/14 5:42pm ET
New York Giants TE Daniel Fells could win the team's starting job with a strong showing in their preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of the Star Ledger.
Huddle Up: Fells is a journeyman, who is playing for his 4th team in 5 seasons after sitting out last season. In short, nothing here of fantasy interest.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/22/14 9:22pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) was not active for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the New York Jets. However, he might be ready to resume practicing next week.
Huddle Up: Beckham was supposed to be a big part of the Giants' offense this season but the rookie has been injured all training camp. Beckham is now more valuable in dynasty leagues than re-draft formats. Look for the former LSU star to make his biggest contributions on special teams as a rookie.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/20/14 2:22pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20, and is on the sidelines stretching.
Huddle Up: The agonizing wait continues for the Giants' first-round pick to get on the field and show something.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/19/14 10:20am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) caught a pass in 7-on-7 drills Monday, Aug. 18, and burst up the field. When he ran into a defender, he did an awkward hop and jogged very slowly to the sideline. He didn't take another repetition in practice that day. At times, he was seen flexing his leg.
Huddle Up: Beckham is certainly not endearing himself to noted tough-guy Tom Coughlin with his fragility. Moreover, he's not getting reps in a Giants' offense that needs plenty of work before the lights come on for real. At this point it's tough to see the rookie making an immediate contribution, so if you're drafting him in a dynasty league patience will be the operative word.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 8/19/14 5:41pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to get the bulk of the carries in Week 1, according to Dan Graziano.
Huddle Up: Rookie Andre Williams is the only real threat to steal touches at the moment, leaving Jennings as a decent value at his current ADP of 26th among RBs.
Prince Amukamara - CBPosted 8/17/14 7:51pm ET
Updating previous reports, New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara will have an MRI on his groin. The team is concerned, and Amukamara is sore.
Huddle Up: Something to keep an eye on as Amukamara is the key incumbent among the Giants' reconfigured CB corps.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/14/14 7:08pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) will miss the team's preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 16. He is expected to play in Week 3 of the preseason.
Huddle Up: Week 3 of the preseason has been the most realistic target all along for the first-round pick, who is behind after missing the majority of camp.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/13/14 7:36pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) took part in 11-on-11 drills in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, but it remains unlikely that he'll play in the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts this week.
Huddle Up: Beckham is getting close to returning but may still be held out one more preseason game. The rookie has a lot of talent but his slow start to camp has dropped Beckham to an ADP of Round 14.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 8/12/14 11:42pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) was seen limping following a collision in one-on-one drills at practice Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: We haven't heard anything to suggest this wasn't anything more than your typical camp bump or bruise. If so, Cruz should be back on the field Wednesday.
John Conner - RBPosted 8/11/14 10:54am ET
New York Giants FB John Conner (concussion) will have to undergo the concussion protocol before he is allowed to return to practice, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: Conner is a tough lead blocker but not much of a fantasy factor. Where his absence might be felt is at the goal line, where Andre Williams may not have the holes he needs to be effective.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/11/14 10:54am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) will participate in individual drills during practice Monday, Aug. 11, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: Beckham needs to get back to full workouts in order to carve out a role in the Giants' receiver rotation. Right now he's on Coughlin's list, which isn't a good place to be--especially if you're banking on Beckham to be a fantasy factor.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 8/11/14 8:42pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) simply had a maintenance day while missing practice Monday, Aug. 11 according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nothing to be overly concerned about with the Giants' top wideout, who currently owns an ADP in the low 30s as the 14th WR, on average, coming off the board.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 8/10/14 4:32pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had five carries for 85 yards in the team's second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 9, including a 73-yard touchdown run.
Huddle Up: The former Jag and Raider showed off some speed some thought he was lacking on the 73-yard scoring sprint, and he's got a vise-grip on the Giants' starting gig at this point. In short, he's a decent bargain if you can still get him at his current seventh/eighth-round ADP.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 8/10/14 10:53pm ET
In two preseason appearances spanning two quarters, New York Giants QB Eli Manning has yet to throw a pass that has traveled more than 10 yards in the air - most likely the result of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo lacking confidence in his offensive line. He went 0-for-2 and was sacked once in four offensive series against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Manning also was brought down once in 8 drop-backs during the Hall of Fame Game, but look for McAdoo and Manning to start taking a few more chances with the two most important tune-ups at hand.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 8/6/14 1:50pm ET
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis (ankle, foot) will be out for a while because of ankle and foot injuries, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: Rough news for the veteran back a day after it was revealed that he was running second behind stater Rashad Jennings on the depth chart. In the meantime, this presents a golden opportunity for good-looking rookie Andre Williams.
David Wilson - RBPosted 8/5/14 12:42am ET
New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has come to terms with the fact that his playing days are over, according to a team news release. 'I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me or pity me,' Wilson said in the release. 'I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too.'
Huddle Up: Heart-breaking statement from the 2012 first-round pick, and here's wishing him the very best in his next endeavor.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 8/5/14 2:05pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) has not been cleared to practice, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: The hammy-plagued first-round draft pick already has missed one preseason contest and continues to fall further behind as the games that count draw nearer. Keep dropping his draft value accordingly.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 8/5/14 6:32pm ET
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis has moved up to the No. 2 RB on the team's depth chart with RB Andre Williams as the No. 3 RB.
Huddle Up: Between the arrival of free-agent Rashad Jennings, the drafting of Williams and David Wilson's tough tale, Hillis has sort of been lost in the shuffle. Williams (7-48, TD) and Hillis (7-36) were the G-Men's best-looking RBs in Sunday's HOF Game, but the majority of fantasy experts and GMs are casting their lots with the fourth-round pick. We'll see how the upcoming exhibition contests shake out.
Daniel Fells - TEPosted 8/4/14 1:36am ET
New York Giants TE Daniel Fells (knee) suffered a knee sprain during the Hall of Fame Game.
Huddle Up: Fells, who's trying to catch on with the Giants after spending last season out of football, caught 1 pass for 10 yards before the injury, but the starter Sunday night at the position was Larry Donnell, a 2012 college free agent who has 1 career NFL reception. With Adrien Robinson and Kellen Davis also at the position, any missed time certainly isn't going to help Fells' cause.
David Wilson - RBPosted 8/4/14 2:36pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will miss the 2014 season because of his neck injury.
Huddle Up: Unfortunately, it appears that Wilson's NFL career is also in serious jeopardy. Dynasty owners can now drop him to free up a roster spot.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 8/1/14 11:17am ET
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis handled the bulk of the repetitions with the second-team offense Thursday, July 31. RB Andre Williams continued to receive most of the goal line carries.
Huddle Up: Williams as the goal line guy is intriguing, especially in leagues with a TD-heavy scoring system. And with David Wilson unlikely to return, looks like Hillis is the complement to Rashad Jennings--probably good fantasy news for Jennings.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 8/1/14 6:03pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will play in the team's first preseason game Sunday, Aug. 3, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: Look for a series or two from Eli and his first-team running mates as we see get the first real glimpse of Ben McAddo's new offense.
David Wilson - RBPosted 7/31/14 4:44pm ET
Doctors for New York Giants RB David Wilson are very hesitant to clear him to return to football after suffering a neck stinger in practice.
Huddle Up: Wilson is determined to keep playing, but the stars just may not be aligned after this early-camp setback.
David Wilson - RBPosted 7/30/14 11:26am ET
New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will sit out of practice the rest of the week and won't play in the first preseason game. He underwent tests Tuesday, July 29, and will be examined by the surgeon that performed his neck fusion next week.
Huddle Up: It's entirely possible the Giants will encase Wilson in bubble wrap to prevent further injury. At this juncture he's a late-round fantasy add with upside, but you simply can't count on him to stay healthy long enough to help your squad.
David Wilson - RBPosted 7/30/14 7:17pm ET
New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) tweeted that he is fine after leaving practice early Tuesday, July 29. Wilson said he passed all physical examinations and will find out more Monday, Aug. 3.
Huddle Up: Obviously any neck injury is a concern for Wilson and the Giants given his past. He'll be monitored closely but assuming Wilson doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should resume practicing next week. Wilson is penciled in as the Giants No. 2 RB behind Rashad Jennings but his injury history makes him a boom or bust fantasy pick.
Jerrel Jernigan - WRPosted 7/29/14 10:32am ET
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.
