Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 1/3/19 8:21pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley's 16 rushes of 20-plus yards were five more than any other player in the NFL in 2018.
Huddle Up: Barkley proved to be the total package as a rookie, leading the league in total yards while scoring 15 times and catching 91 passes. Between his heavy workload, versatility and explosiveness, he'll be in the mix to the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts in 2019.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 1/2/19 9:11am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not be traded this offseason, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.
Huddle Up: Beckham has led a tenuous tenure during his stay in New York. He has performed well on the field, but his polarizing off-field life, injuries and the Giants' failures have spawned trade whispers. Gettleman has abruptly silenced those whispers, but Beckham is an elite wide receiver wherever he plays as long as he's in good health.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 1/2/19 10:27am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning's future with the Giants is cloudy as general manager Dave Gettleman was noncommittal on Manning being the starter in 2019. 'I'm committed to making the best decision in the interest of the Giants. We're in the evaluation process,' Gettleman said.
Huddle Up: Manning will have a good game every now and then, but he's far from consistent and clearly one of the weakest links on the offense. Keep him off your 2019 fantasy draft board.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 12/30/18 9:46am ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley needs 114 scrimmage yards in Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 30, to join Eric Dickerson and Edgerrin James as the only rookie running backs with 2,000 scrimmage yards.
Huddle Up: Barkley is one of the few elite RB1s active and seemingly set for a full workload in Week 17, and with the opposing Dallas Cowboys resting up for the wild-card round of the playoffs, Barkley might be THE RB1 start of the week.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 12/30/18 11:26am ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley recorded his 89th reception of the season during the Week 17 game, which sets the NFL record for most receptions by a running back during their rookie season.
Huddle Up: Barkley has been a big part of the Giants offense this season and should continue to be a focal point in the running and passing game next season. He should be considered a top-five pick in all drafts next season.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/30/18 5:16pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 24-of-41 passes for 301 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Manning has one year remaining on his contract, but it's uncertain if he'll return for that final season and retire this offseason. Either way, he has become more of a QB2 for fantasy purposes should be play into 2019.
Cody Latimer - WRPosted 12/30/18 5:42pm ET
New York Giants WR Cody Latimer ended up with four grabs for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys on six targets.
Huddle Up: Latimer entered the game with just seven receptions and 118 yards, so don't get too excited about this. We've seen Latimer have big games and work his way up the depth chart before, but he never can see to get over the hump.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/30/18 5:39pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with four receptions for 67 yards on nine targets in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Shepard's production was a bit erratic in 2018, but he still turned in 66 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns. He will always be in the shadow of Odell Beckham Jr. as long as he is healthy, but Shepard can still be a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in 2019. It would be amazing to see his potential with a little bit better quarterback play.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/30/18 5:32pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram posted five catches for 81 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Engram had a hard time getting starter due to a multitude of injuries, but he got healthy as the season finished and he had 66 or more receiving yards in each of his final five games. Some fantasy owners might have a bitter taste in their mouth from owning him in 2018, so he could come on the cheap in 2019.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 12/30/18 5:28pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 17 times for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys and he added four receptions for 33 yards on eight targets.
Huddle Up: Barkley finished his rookie campaign with 1,307 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns while adding 91 receptions for 721 receiving yards and four more scores. He was everything as advertised in his first season and he'll be a first-round fantasy pick in a majority of leagues in 2019.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/28/18 8:43am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 28, and he's expected to miss the season finale.
Huddle Up: Sterling Shepard came on strong last week and will be a WR3 option against the Dallas Cowboys.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/28/18 8:55am ET
Updating an earlier report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Sterling Shepard came on strong last week and will be a WR3 option against a Dallas Cowboys squad with little to play for.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/27/18 9:23am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) will not return to practice Thursday, Dec. 27, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Beckham still has a chance to play this week, but the odds lessen as the week advances without him practicing. He's the kind of player who could take the field without practicing, but the Giants want to keep his long-term health in mind too. As for next year, he remains a top-tier WR1 despite the injury setback.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/27/18 11:21am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: The Week 17 value of Shepard hinges on the status of Odell Beckham Jr. If Beckham does not suit up then Shepard has WR2 appeal, although lower expectations since he is facing a tough Indianapolis Colts pass defense.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/26/18 8:50am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) is not expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: There is time, but don't expect OBJ in the finale. Sterling Shepard had a 6-113-0 day last week and could be worth a flyer against a Dallas Cowboys team that is locked into the fourth seed.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/26/18 1:07pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Odell Beckham Jr. returns, but if he doesn't then Shepard will be the Giants' primary receiving threat yet again. His matchup versus the Dallas Cowboys isn't ideal, but he'd be a WR2 candidate if he plays.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/26/18 7:50pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) has a chance to play in the Week 17 game even though he did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Beckham's status in the next few days. He is a must-start option when he is healthy, but owners will need other options available if he is ruled out.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/24/18 9:42am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will make the start against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: It's not a surprise as Shurmur has consistently insisted Manning has "years left" and is his starting quarterback, but it is still a disappointment. The team does not seem interested in seeing what rookie Kyle Lauletta has to offer, nor does Shurmur care to realize Manning is a big part of what is holding his offense back. The Giants should be one of several teams desperately seeking to improve the quarterback position this offseason.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/23/18 5:08pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 25 of his 33 passes for 309 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16. He also added a rushing score.
Huddle Up: It was one of the better games for Manning this season, but it still wasn't enough to secure a win. There has been some speculation that he may not start the finale, but even if he does play, he can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/23/18 5:24pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught all six of his targets for 87 yards and rushed twice for 26 yards in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Engram continued to thrive without Odell Beckham Jr. in the lineup, and he has become a must-start TE1 heading into the finale.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/23/18 5:20pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught six of his seven targets for 113 yards in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was Shepard's first solid outing in several weeks and the first time he looked like a No. 1 receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. went down. That being said, he will be no more than a risky flex play in the season finale.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 12/23/18 5:13pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 21 times for 43 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 34 yards in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Barkley has been held in check by his standards in each of the last two games. On paper, he has another tough matchup with Dallas in the finale, but the Cowboys may rest some starters after clinching the NFC East. Start Barkley as you normally would.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/22/18 7:51pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram faces the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16, and the Colts have allowed the most receiving yards to opposing tight ends this season.
Huddle Up: Engram has seen a jump in his numbers since Odell Beckham Jr. was injured, topping 70 yards in back-to-back games. Expect the good times to continue against the Colts. Dial up Engram as a TE1.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/21/18 8:32am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) was on the stationary bike at practice Friday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: He's unlikely to play this week, maybe next week as well. Sterling Shepard would figure to be the benefactor, but he has caught two balls in each of the past two weeks. There's no one worth starting outside of Evan Engram or Saquon Barkley
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/21/18 9:04am ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) on Friday, Dec. 21, was ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: This will be the third straight game OBJ has missed, and for all intents and purposes, it likely also means the end of his season with the 5-9 Giants having nothing on the line. Meanwhile, it's another on-paper fantasy bump for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram as the Giants try to rebound from their Week 15 home shutout loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/21/18 6:57pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has been targeted 15 times in the two games WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) has missed, but he has just four catches for 54 yards combined in those contests.
Huddle Up: Beckham will be sidelined again in Week 16, but Shepard has yet to prove he can take advantage of the larger role. Don't expect that to change against an Indianapolis defense that has been solid against the pass.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/20/18 9:12am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) was held out of practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: At this point it would be a surprise if Beckham took the field this weekend. The Giants don't need to rush back their star wide receiver in a lost season. If Beckham does sit then Sterling Shepard possesses WR3 value in a tough matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/19/18 9:02am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: There is little reason for OBJ to play the final two games, but the team maintains they aren't shutting him down yet. Plan accordingly for him to be unavailable.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/19/18 12:18pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) was held out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Beckham is dealing with a nagging quad injury and faces a really tough matchup against the Indianapolis Colts if he is able to play. It's not a recipe you want to try in championship contests, but it's hard to bench a player with as high a ceiling as Beckham's. For now, keep tabs on his progress or lack thereof over the next couple days.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 12/17/18 9:59am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) is 'doing everything he can to get back,' and the team is hopeful he'll be able to return from a two-game absence in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: The holiday season is almost always good for some curious personnel decisions, and this would be one of them. Unless Beckham is 100 percent recovered by next weekend, it makes little sense for the Giants to risk further injuring their top receiver when they have already been eliminated from the playoff race and can do nothing but hurt themselves in terms of worsening their potential draft spot. Owners should not expect him to play and be pleasantly surprised if he does.
