Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 11/24/14 4:48pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (back) has a sore back and could be limited in practice this week. Head coach Tom Coughlin said he should be OK, however.
Huddle Up: Beckham didn't look the same after re-entering the game Sunday night but he'll have a few days to rest the injury. Barring a setback, the emerging Beckham will be a Top 15 receiver against Jacksonville this week.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 11/20/14 10:07am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning told reporters on Wednesday, Nov. 19, that he wanted to retire from football as a Giant. No details of a new contract or extension were announced, but sources indicate the team would like to keep him. Giants owner John Mara, in a separate interview, said he believes Manning has 'a lot of good years left.'
Huddle Up: Manning does have a pair of Super Bowl rings to his credit, and he picked up the team's new offense surprisingly quickly after things looked hopeless in the preseason. His price tag and the Giants' ability to find and prep an heir to Eli's job will go a long way towards determining whether or not he remains in New York as well.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/19/14 2:13pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not on the injury report this week. He said he came away from the Week 11 game fine.
Huddle Up: Jennings had a healthy 22 touches (for 67 total yards) in his Week 11 return and will be good to go Sunday night vs. the Cowboys.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 11/15/14 1:57pm ET
The New York Giants placed RB Peyton Hillis (concussion) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: With Rashad Jennings expected back this week, Andre Williams will return to his backup role. Jennings will get most of the touches, with Williams set to see 5-7 carries a game.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/14/14 4:15pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is probable for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Jennings will see his first action since Week 5 but will be on a pitch count Sunday against the Niners as was cautioned by coach Tom Coughlin earlier in the week.
Rashad Jennings - RbPosted 11/13/14 4:23pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will not carry a full load in the team's Week 11 game if he is able to play, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings was limited for a second straight day in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Good words of fantasy caution about a RB who's been out since Week 5.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/12/14 3:54pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is expected to play in Week 11 unless he suffers a setback during the week, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: Jennings, who accumulated 505 total yards and scored 2 TDs over the Giants' first 5 games, will be welcomed by fantasy GMs after missing the last 4 contests. In the meantime, struggling rookie Andre Williams will go back to his change-of-pace role.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 11/10/14 9:52am ET
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis (head) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: Hillis was forced to leave after a 4-yard rush and a 5-yard reception in the first quarter, leaving the bulk of the RB duties to rookie Andre Williams. Rashad Jennings is expected to return in Week 11, so Hillis might be given an extra week or so to recover.
Michael Cox - RBPosted 11/10/14 10:03am ET
New York Giants RB Michael Cox (leg) suffered a lower-left leg fracture Sunday, Nov. 9, against the Seattle Seahawks. The club will likely add a replacement running back this week.
Huddle Up: It was a tough day for N.Y. RBs in Seattle with Peyton Hillis suffering a concussion, but the Giants will still have their top two RBs intact this coming week if Rashad Jennings can return from the MCL sprain that has kept him out the last month.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/10/14 3:27pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) appears to be on track to play in Week 11, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Jennings would take over as the primary back and be an RB2 as soon as he's healthy. It looks like he has a good shot at playing this week against the 49ers.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/8/14 12:01pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not travel with the team for their Week 10 game and has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: Andre Williams will once again get the start with Peyton Hillis also seeing a few touches. Williams is a flex play option this week against the Seahawks.
Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 11/7/14 12:57pm ET
New York Giants RB Andre Williams is expected to continue to lose carries to RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox.
Huddle Up: Williams scored last week and looked to be running better than the results have shown. What the Giants and fantasy owners really need is for Rashad Jennings to return to the lineup.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/7/14 4:17pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is doubtful for Week 10.
Huddle Up: While Jennings was able to show a little more in practice this week, Week 11 has always been a much more realistic return date. In the meantime, it'll be another week of Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/6/14 2:57pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not rule out playing in the team's Week 10 game. 'There's always a chance,' Jennings said.
Huddle Up: Jennings, who sat out Wednesday's practice, handled scout-team reps Thursday, and despite his optimistic view, a Week 11 return remains a much more likely scenario.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/5/14 4:23pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: The MCL sprain has proven trickier than first thought as Jennings will have missed more than a month if he's unable to play Sunday in Seattle. In the meantime, rookie Andre Williams will continue to start, but he's done little with the opportunity.
Prince Amukamara - CBPosted 11/4/14 10:29am ET
New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) is out for the season with a torn right biceps tendon.
Huddle Up: Tough blow for the Giants defense to lose Amukamara, but good fantasy news for those passing games with the Giants still on their schedule this year.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 11/4/14 4:08pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. had his first 100-yard receiving game in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Nov. 3, with eight catches for 156 yards. He had just one catch for 19 yards in the second half, though, and much of his damage came with the game well out of hand. 'It's still kind of just getting there right now,' Beckham said. 'I'm doing the best I can to maintain what I've gone through already, but I wouldn't say that it's all the way there yet. It's still a work in progress.' Beckham missed all of the preseason and the first four games of the year due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Beckham and teammate Rueben Randle were each targeted a team-high 11 times Monday night, but the rookie had the far better game and looks to be the top Giants' WR to own and start going forward.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/30/14 4:36pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been ruled out of the Week 9 game against the Colts but said he is on track in terms of his rehab. Still, there is no timetable for his return. Jennings said he has not suffered any setbacks but is not ready to play yet.
Huddle Up: Disappointing news for Jennings' fantasy owners who were hoping to see the productive back return after the Giants' bye last week, but it looks like the wait will extend past a month.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/28/14 11:27am ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.
Huddle Up: The Giants will roll with Andre Williams and others until Jennings is back in the mix.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/27/14 8:12pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ruling out the possibility of playing in Week 9 but will not return until he is ready. Jennings did not run during the bye week and was only able to do some light jogging Monday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: Jennings has been shooting for a Week 9 return, but he's obviously going to have to show some significant strides in practice this week. We'll revisit the situation when the Giants' begin practice Wednesday.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 10/23/14 10:16am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning has completed 65 percent of his passes, which would be a career high. He also has 14 touchdown passes to just five interceptions, compared to 10 touchdowns and 15 interceptions at this point last season. '(The difference is) probably in his football,' quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf said Wednesday, Oct. 22. 'I think he is playing at a high level and I think improved football has really helped out.'
Huddle Up: It took all of the preseason and the first couple regular season games for Manning to find his groove, but aside from last week's hiccup against the Eagles he's been as effective as ever. With the bye week to get acclimated to his receivers san Victor Cruz, the second half looks bright for Manning and the Giants' offense.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/23/14 10:16am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. might be moved around over the final nine games, according to receivers coach Sean Ryan. He said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he envisions moving Beckham around so teams cannot just key on the young playmaker, and the belief is that Beckham's skills will play well in the slot. The only thing that may prevent the team from moving him inside is that they don't want 'to overload him.'
Huddle Up: Beckham missed much of the team's offseason and preseason work due to injury, so throwing another position at him might be counterproductive. That said, expect the Giants to find ways to take advantage of Beckham's skill set and get him the ball on a consistent basis.
Preston Parker - WRPosted 10/23/14 10:16am ET
New York Giants WR Preston Parker took almost all of his snaps as the slot receiver in Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, while WR Odell Beckham Jr. was sprinkled in at the spot for a few plays. Rueben Randle could also be used in the slot over the final nine games, as the team works to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee). 'The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Rueben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field,' receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: New York's receiver rotation likely hinges on how quickly Beckham can pick up other spots in the offense. If he's able to play X, Y and Z the Giants can interchange their receivers to take advantage of matchups--a benefit not just to Beckham but to Randle and Parker and Eli Manning as well.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/18/14 2:01pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) intends to start running next week in a pool and on a machine that will alleviate pressure. Jennings is hoping to return in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Andre Williams will continue to see the bulk of the carries while Jennings is out. Williams is a strong flex play option this week against Dallas even though he didn't do much in last week's blowout loss to Philadelphia.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - CBPosted 10/16/14 2:26pm ET
New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) will need to make some progress if he wants to play in Week 7, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: DRC still has a chance to take some strides Friday, but it's looking like a case of bad timing with the G-Men preparing to face the Dez Bryant-Terrance Williams duo, which has combined for 54 catches and 9 TDs already this season.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/15/14 3:28pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will definitely not play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 5. The team is hoping he can return after their bye week and play in Week 9.
Huddle Up: It looks like another week of rookie Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis in the N.Y. backfield, and expect to see more of the latter if the Giants fall behind and need the veteran Hills' superior pass-protection skills.
Preston Parker - WRPosted 10/14/14 4:08pm ET
New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. are acceptable options to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee), according to head coach Tom Coughlin, with WR Preston Parker in the slot position. The Giants are content in not trading for another receiver from outside the organization. The only other healthy receiver on the current roster is WR Corey Washington.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on Washington, who was a preseason standout, but the fantasy owners of the top 3 wideouts, particularly Randle's and Beckham's, should see a noticeable uptick in targets.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 10/14/14 4:15pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) won't ever be the same after his season-ending knee injury, according to Dr. David Chao. "He can return to 100 percent, but it (his knee) is a car in a car accident," said Chao, a former NFL team physician. "Never brand new when fixed." There is no timetable for Cruz's rehab, and there is no prognosis for the rest of his career. His injury could rob him of his explosiveness and change-of-direction ability. A handful of NFL players have returned from this type of injury, but none of them discovered their elite form. A torn patellar tendon can't be fixed arthroscopically, so it needs a massive open procedure that will require lengthy and painful rehab. Cruz will need to rebuild the muscles around the tendon, and it'll likely be 6 months before he can even try to run again.
Huddle Up: Just a crushing turn of developments for the undrafted free agent who took the NFL by storm in 2011 when he debuted with 82 catches for 1,536 yards and 9 TDs. He was off to a 23-337-1 start this season.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) was taken off on a cart after suffering a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. As he was carted off, he was sobbing on the way back to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Cruz will miss the rest of the 2014 season. It's an opportunity for Odell Beckham Jr. to claim more looks in the Giants' passing game, though as a whole New York's offense looked lousy Sunday night against the Eagles.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 10/13/14 3:46pm ET
Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn patellar tendon.
Huddle Up: Cruz is done for the year. Odell Beckham will move into the starting lineup with Preston Parker getting first crack at slot receiver. Beckham is a must-add in all formats if he's still on the waiver wire.
