Larry Donnell - TEPosted 11/27/15 7:08pm ET
New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (neck) is out for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Donnell will miss a straight game, leaving the tight-end duties in the hands of Will Tye, who's caught seven passes for 75 yards over his last two outings.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 11/16/15 12:19pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) announced he's having season-ending surgery on his left calf and will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Cruz was originally expected to be back in Week 1 but now may never play another down with the Giants. Dwayne Harris will be the Giants' slot receiver for the rest of the season.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 11/13/15 10:31am ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) will begin running individual routes Saturday, Nov. 14. They'll slowly add in throwing a ball and eventually move to longer routes. The next step would be practice. Cruz had a second platelet-rich plasma injection about three weeks ago and said he won't rush back. 'I think I'll play it a little bit safer,' Cruz said. 'If there is any pain, I'll shut it down. You don't want to wake up anything. If there is any soreness, we shut it down. We kind of make sure we're staying under the radar as the training staff likes to call it.'
Huddle Up: Cruz should be ready to go right about the time your fantasy season ends. You can plan on him for next year if you'd like, but it doesn't look as if he'll bring any value to the 2015 fantasy table.
Larry Donnell - TEPosted 11/12/15 6:34pm ET
New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (neck) is expected to sit out again in Week 10 against the New England Patriots. He has done some running in practice the last two days, but that has been it. The Giants have a bye week in Week 11, so the Giants could give Donnell extra time to recover.
Huddle Up: It looks like the Giants will roll with the fantasy-unfriendly TE combo of Jerome Cunningham and Will Tye again Sunday against the Patriots.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 11/7/15 5:36pm ET
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) was activated to the 53-man roster Saturday, Nov. 7. He'll play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Pierre-Paul will make his season debut after missing the first eight games. Expect Pierre-Paul to play in pass rush situations as he works his way back into the regular rotation.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 11/4/15 3:56pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is not on this week's pre-practice injury report.
Huddle Up: Yeah, we were thinking that OBJ looked fairly healthy in his 8-130-3 performance on Sunday in the Big Easy.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 11/4/15 6:40pm ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (tailbone) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Even though he was limited, it was very positive to see Darkwa participating in the Giants' first practice of the week. See if the momentum continues over the next few days.
Larry Donnell - TEPosted 11/3/15 4:39pm ET
New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (neck) has avoided a serious injury but is dealing with a sore neck, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Donnell is coming off his worst game of the season with one 22-yard reception against the Saints and we'll have to monitor his participation in practice this week.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 11/3/15 11:55pm ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa might not be able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 4, after suffering a badly bruised tailbone in the Week 8 loss against the New Orleans Saints. However, he is still hopeful of playing in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Darkwa was limited to four carries for 23 yards before sustaining the injury, and we'll have to see if and when he's able to get back on the practice field this week.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/30/15 4:20pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is probable for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Beckham is overdue for a big game coming off a season-low four catches for 35 yards last week and with only one 100-yard receiving outing his last five contests.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/29/15 10:11am ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa scored the team's only offensive touchdown in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he likely earned more playing time at the expense of RBs Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. 'He certainly did look good out there,' head coach Tom Coughlin said after the win. 'His touchdown run when he cut back behind the slanting defensive line was really quite an outstanding play.'
Huddle Up: The Giants have muddled through with a three-headed backfield, and now Darkwa adds another player to the mix. Shane Vereen remains the pass-catching back, with Darkwa moving to the front of the line for first- and second-down work. It's still a big ol' mess, but if you have to be holding a Giants back at least Darkwa has upside.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 10/28/15 9:17am ET
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (finger, hand) will likely receive a roster exemption so that he begin practicing with the team this week. The Giants are comfortable with where Pierre-Paul is at physically after putting him through a physical this week. A roster exemption would last for a maximum of two weeks and would allow him to get back into 'football shape.' His new one-year deal is expected to be prorated and heavy on incentives.
Huddle Up: All signs point towards a JPP return in Week 10, at which point the Giants' defense might not be such a fantasy pushover so plan accordingly.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 10/27/15 8:50am ET
Updating a previous story, New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) visited the team Monday, Oct. 26, according to a source, and he plans to meet again later this week for a medical re-check of his right hand and to discuss contract details.
Huddle Up: All signs point towards JPP returning to the Giants, though he may not be ready to return to game action as early as this week. There are still medical clearance and contract hurdles to be cleared, but at least he's in the building.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/27/15 3:40pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said his injured hamstring is starting to feel better.
Huddle Up: Beckham was able to get through the last two games without further aggravation, and now his fantasy owners will be expecting more production after he's averaged only 5.5 receptions and 48 yards the last two weeks.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 10/26/15 9:11am ET
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) will report to the team Monday, Oct. 26, or Tuesday, Oct. 27, with the intent of signing his tender and playing as soon as possible, according to a source. Everything hinges upon his passing a physical.
Huddle Up: The Giants could use some help in the pass-rushing department; whether JPP is ready to help immediately--or is even capable of providing something close to the QB pressure he's known for--remains to be seen.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 10/26/15 9:11am ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had eight carries for a team-high 48 yards and a touchdown in a 27-20 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Add another name to the Giants' running back rotation, which certainly doesn't help fantasy matters. The six yards per carry is solid, but if Darkwa is going to split touches with Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen his fantasy value will be limited.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 10/26/15 2:03pm ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had played on just two offensive snaps heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he was the leading rusher in the preseason by averaging 4.4 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was non-committal if Darkwa would see more work behind RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams.
Huddle Up: The Giants' backfield is a fantasy mess right now. Darkwa is worth a flier but more than likely he'll be part of a committee with three other backs in New York.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/23/15 2:55pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but head coach Tom Coughlin said he expects Beckham to play.
Huddle Up: Beckham was able to get in some limited work Friday after sitting out the previous two practices, and like last week, expect him to be out there Sunday afternoon for the divisional rematch against the Cowboys.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/22/15 4:07pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 22 but said he will practice Saturday and play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, which is the same program he was on last week.
Huddle Up: The strategy worked well last Monday night as he led the Giants with seven catches for 61 yards and a TD. He also figures to be extra motivated this week after he was held to five receptions for 44 yards in the Week 1 contest against the Cowboys.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 10/21/15 2:20pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is not expected to play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he's undergoing another MRI exam Wednesday, Oct. 21. He's been feeling better but will likely miss another game.
Huddle Up: Nothing new here as signs are pointing toward Cruz missing a 17th straight game, since his Week 6 knee injury last season.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 10/20/15 12:31am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught seven of his eight targets for a team-leading 61 yards and a TD Monday, Oct. 19 in a 27-7 Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: OBJ played and played well -- seemingly without further aggravation -- as he entered the night with a questionable tag following a Week 5 hamstring issue. His 13-yard first-quarter scoring reception proved to be the Giants' only score of the night, and he remains a solid WR1 going forward.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 10/20/15 4:10pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is without pain in his calf, according a source. He'll have an MRI Wednesday, Oct. 21, and could return to practice.
Huddle Up: The Cruz Watch drags on, and it's all going to depend how much the WR can do when gets back on the practice field.
Daniel Fells - TEPosted 10/20/15 4:27pm ET
New York Giants TE Daniel Fells (foot) was released from the hospital Tuesday, Oct. 20, after being treated for a MRSA staph infection.
Huddle Up: No real fantasy implications here, but a feel-good turn of events nonetheless for Fells, who at one point was in danger of having his foot amputated.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/19/15 12:57pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is expected to play Monday, Oct. 19, against the Philadelphia Eagles, barring a pre-game setback. z
Huddle Up: Owners who waited on Beckham obviously need to have him in their lineups if he's active. Beckham could be in line for a big game against a struggling Eagles' pass defense.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 10/19/15 5:15pm ET
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle will be able to play in the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Oct. 19, but is not completely recovered from his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Randle will be in the lineup but if owners have another option, it sounds like he'll be limited. Shane Vereen could see more targets with Randle less than 100 percent.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/19/15 7:19pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Beckham will play but he practiced little this week and his leg is not 100% healthy. He'll be more than a decoy but how much more depends on his hamstring.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/18/15 10:41pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) remains questionable to play in the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but at least he was able to travel with the team for the game. He did not practice at all this week, but he still is hopeful of playing Monday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: It's good news for Beckham's chances of playing against the Eagles. Beckham remains a gametime decision but there's a good chance he'll be in the lineup.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 10/17/15 1:22pm ET
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Randle will be a WR3 assuming he plays Monday. His fantasy value will go up even more should Odell Beckham, Jr, not be able to go with a hamstring injury.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/17/15 1:22pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 17, and is listed as questionable for the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Beckham, Jr. will be a game-time decision this week. The big problem for fantasy owners is he plays on Monday. Owners need to have another option ready in case Beckham is inactive.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 10/16/15 2:40pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) missed another day of practice Friday, Oct. 16, and not much changed since Thursday, but head coach Tom Coughlin refuses to rule Beckham out against the Philadelphia Eagles for the Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 19. The Giants will have a full practice Sunday, Oct. 18, so Beckham has one more chance to work before game day. WR Dwayne Harris would likely be the No. 2 receiver behind WR Rueben Randle if Beckham can't play against the Eagles.
Huddle Up: It's shaping up to be a tough spot for OBJ's fantasy owners with the Giants not playing until Monday night unless you have another MNF WR or flex option to plug in if Beckham is ruled out. Get your Plan B set now, and play it by ear over the weekend.
