Victor Cruz - WRPosted 9/18/14 10:02am ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had three drops in Week 2 after demanding to see the ball more before the game. He vowed to get better moving forward.
Huddle Up: Maybe the Giants should demand that Cruz catch the ball better? The new-look Giants offense is still a work in progress, as is Cruz's role in said offense.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 9/17/14 6:04pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and coach Tom Coughlin was non-committal about the rookie's status for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Sadly nothing new here for the first-round pick.
Jerrel Jernigan - WRPosted 9/16/14 7:01pm ET
New York Giants WR Jerrel Jernigan (foot) has been placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Tough break for Jernigan, who will finish the year with 6 catches for 40 yards. Going forward, though, this figures to mean more targets for Preston Parker, Corey Washington and first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr., if his hammy ever gets right.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 9/11/14 4:15pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Another day same story for the Giants' top pick and just another facet of the team's hot mess of a passing game.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 9/9/14 7:31pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz thinks the offense will improve if more targets are directed his way. 'In order for us to be successful I think there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction,' Cruz said, on a conference call with reporters. 'And other playmakers' directions, just like Rueben Randle as well, in my opinion.' Cruz had only six targets and finished with two grabs and 24 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. Randle was targeted only three times for two catches and one yard.
Huddle Up: Cruz and Randle owners shouldn't have been expecting too much out of the gate following the first team's offensive struggles in the preseason, but 9 combined targets and 4 total receptions for the duo was nightmarish. See if things improve in Week 2 and if not, it might be time to start mapping out the quickest route to the panic button.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 9/8/14 8:59pm ET
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (neck) is back on the field in the second quarter of the Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. He left for X-rays after suffering a neck injury in the first quarter, and everything checked out fine.
Huddle Up: Good news for the Giants could ill-afford to be without their top pass rusher after getting riddled for two passing touchdowns in the first quarter Monday night.
Larry Donnell - TEPosted 9/8/14 11:13pm ET
New York Giants TE Larry Donnell caught five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown Monday, Sept. 8 in a 35-14 Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: The second-year undrafted free agent was the surprise receiving leader for the G-Men, garnering a team-high 8 targets and finishing with more catches and and yards than WRs Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle (4-25) combined. Overall, though, the poor performances from 2013 and the 2014 preseason carried over into a dismal passing night (144 net yards, 2 interceptions) for the Giants' passing attack.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 9/6/14 3:23pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is officially out for Monday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle will see a majority of the targets from Eli Manning on Monday night. Beckham has no fantasy value in redraft leagues at the moment.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 9/5/14 9:21pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) appears to be making some progress. Last week at practice he was standing around and doing nothing while the team practiced. He still did not practice Friday, Sept. 5, but was seen running, jogging, high-stepping, pseudo-sprinting and route running while also catching passes.
Huddle Up: Beckham isn't on the fantasy radar in re-draft leagues right now. He's missed too much time this summer and the Giants offense is struggling. Expect Beckham to make his biggest impact as a rookie on special teams returning kicks.
Jerrel Jernigan - WRPosted 9/2/14 3:35pm ET
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.
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.
