Peyton Hillis - RBPosted 2/26/15 1:54am ET
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis was released Wednesday, Feb. 25. The move saves $945,000 on the 2015 salary cap.
Huddle Up: Seems like eons ago that Hills was the Madden cover boy; now he's an ex-Giant looking to catch on as a complimentary backfield option. In a year where the running back draft class appears especially deep, that might be easier said than done for Hillis.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 2/22/15 6:12pm ET
Free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants) may be pursued by the Atlanta Falcons if he hits free agency.
Huddle Up: Only the Bengals, with 20, had fewer sacks last season than the Falcons' 22, and the team could again look to a Giant DE -- a la Osi Umenyiora -- for pass-rushing help this offseason. Via free agency, the draft -- or both -- expect the Falcons to add a couple players who can turn up the pressure on opposing QBs.
Victor Cruz - WRPosted 2/19/15 11:58pm ET
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) may commence running shortly, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz is recovering from a torn right patellar tendon in his right knee.
Huddle Up: If Cruz was going to suffer such a tough knee injury, at least it came somewhat early in the season (Week 6), giving him a little extra time for rehab and recovery. We'll continue to monitor his progress throughout the offseason.
Kevin Ogletree - WRPosted 2/17/15 4:21pm ET
New York Giants WR Kevin Ogletree was re-signed to a one-year deal Tuesday, Feb. 17, according to a source. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Ogletree had five receptions for 50 yards in seven games off the bench for the Giants last season but will face a fight to make the final roster, especially if Victor Cruz is able to come back healthy.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 2/8/15 4:48pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning is likely to receive a contract extension this offseason, as the team is all-in on him as their quarterback.
Huddle Up: Yeah, the Eli Era will continue in N.Y. after the QB found new life in 2014, thanks largely to stud rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. Manning topped 4,000 passing yards for the first time in three seasons, and his 30 TD tosses were the second-highest single-season total of his career.
Jason Pierre-Paul - DEPosted 2/6/15 1:39pm ET
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul's contract was voided Friday, Feb. 6, which officially makes him a free agent.
Huddle Up: JPP -- coming off a 12.5-sack, 77-tackle season -- will only be 26 in February and the Giants will have to make a decision on whether to give him the long-term deal he's looking for, retain him under the franchise tag or let him hit the market. It's a tough decision on a player who's been largely productive when healthy but also has had injury issues and has been anything but consistent during his five seasons with the G-Men.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 1/26/15 3:54pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) said he played this season with two tears in his right hamstring, which never fully healed. Beckham said he'll need to shut himself down this offseason in order to enter 2015 fully healthy and in great shape. He said he had tears to his semitendinosus and bicep belly of his hamstring this season. 'It's still not right, I'm still working on it,' Beckham said. 'I'm trying to get it 100 percent for next year.'
Huddle Up: Beckham was pretty good at less than 100 percent, so go ahead and salivate at the prospects of a fully healthy Beckham in 2015. Now wipe that drool off your cheat sheet and bump Beckham up a couple more spots.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 1/21/15 12:44pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Isn't Andre Williams already a complement/competition? Jennings was more than solid when healthy last year; seems counter-productive to bring in another veteran when the Giants already have two decent backs... unless the plan is to phase Jennings out? It's a situation fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on this offseason.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 12/29/14 7:32pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 12 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. Beckham finished the 2014 season with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games.
Huddle Up: Beckham made a huge splash as a rookie and carried the Giants--and fantasy teams--down the stretch. We'll see how if any his role changes playing alongside Victor Cruz next season, but right now he's earned a spot among the top 10 fantasy receivers heading into 2015.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/26/14 5:05pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: It looks like Jennings will return after what's essentially been a two-game absence, making the Giants' RB situation a bit of a fantasy mess with rookie Andre Williams (shoulder) also questionable. And don't forget about Orleans Darkwa, who had six touches for 38 yards and a TD in Week 16.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/24/14 1:41pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Good sign to see Jennings on the field this early in the week after the RB has essentially missed the last two games, but he'd be a risky fantasy start coming off the idle time.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/19/14 3:29pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Friday, Dec. 19, and will not play in the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: The writing was definitely on the wall, and at least Jennings' owners get plenty of notice so they can get another option in place. Meanwhile, it's certainly a boost for those owning Andre Williams as the rookie will shoulder the bulk of the load Sunday in St. Louis.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/18/14 1:49pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: You're just not going to be able to trust Jennings, who started last week and then departed with a first-quarter ankle injury. Rookie Andre Williams, though, certainly moves up on the RB list if Jennings can't go Sunday in St. Louis.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 12/15/14 7:32pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted 12 receptions for 143 yards and three touchdowns in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins. He now holds the franchise rookie receiving yards record with two games to play.
Huddle Up: Don't forget, Beckham missed much of the preseason as well as the first month of the regular season due to injuries. He has certainly made up for lost time and is establishing himself as Eli Manning's favorite target--and an elite fantasy receiver.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/15/14 8:28pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game,' Coughlin said. 'Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet.'
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs might be best served putting Jennings on the back-burner for the final two weeks as there's simply too much uncertainty to deal with -- especially in the championship rounds.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/14/14 10:29pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) left the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins after aggravating his ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Jennings re-injured his ankle on the first carry of the game. With just two games left and the Giants out of the playoff hunt, there's a good chance Jennings is done for the season. Andre Williams will be the lead back next week against the Rams if Jennings is out. It's a tough matchup but Williams is a RB2/3.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/12/14 2:50pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Manning has looked better as the week has progressed and and figures to be fine for Sunday's home game against Washingtton.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/11/14 2:44pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning (back) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: It was the second straight day of work for the QB and he should be good to go Sunday against the Redskins -- a team he shredded for 300 yards and 4 TDs back in the first meeting in Week 4.
Andre Williams - RBPosted 12/8/14 10:34am ET
New York Giants RB Andre Williams rushed for a season-high 131 yards in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, including a 50-yard touchdown scamper.
Huddle Up: Rashad Jennings was active but lightly used as the Giants rolled, so Williams saw plenty of work against the softest run D in the league--and paid dividends to fantasy owners who took a chance on him.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/6/14 1:34pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will travel with the team for their Week 14 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Jennings is a game-time decision but it's looking like he'll suit up against the Titans last ranked rush defense. He won't be 100 percent , however, making Andre Williams a flex play option as well.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/5/14 2:18pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was on the practice field Friday, Dec. 5. He is listed as questionable on the injury report.
Huddle Up: It's something that likely needed to happen for Jennings to have a shot at playing Sunday, but it's still likely going to come down to a game-time decision. Keep monitoring reports and check in with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury & Weather Report before kickoff Sunday.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/4/14 3:54pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Two straight missed practices now for Jennings, and the clock is ticking on Week 14. We'll see if Friday brings better news.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/3/14 4:00pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Nothing Earth shattering as it's the first practice of the week, and we'll continue to monitor the situation as Sunday draws closer.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 12/2/14 12:05am ET
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle has been targeted just seven times the past two games combined. He was targeted at least nine times in each of the team's eight previous games.
Huddle Up: Hey, it's the Odell Beckham Show now in N.Y. -- witness his 32 targets over the last three games, including 19 in the last two -- and Randle is the clear No. 2. Adjust your fantasy expectations accordingly.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 12/2/14 9:04pm ET
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 13. The team signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya Tuesday, Dec. 2, perhaps indicating that Jennings might not be able to go this week.
Huddle Up: Jennings has been productive when healthy, but that hasn't been the case for most of the season. See if there's any better news coming out of practice this week.
Rashad Jennings - RBPosted 11/30/14 7:06pm ET
Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) said Sunday, Nov. 30, that he couldn't re-enter the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars because he couldn't press down on his injured ankle. However, he said he is not worried about missing time.
Huddle Up: Jennings will be further evaluated on Monday. If he misses any time, Andre Williams will step back in as the Giants starter. Williams should be targeted on the waiver wire this week if he's still available in your league.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 11/30/14 8:19pm ET
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle said Sunday, Nov. 30, that he was benched in Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars because he was late to a team meeting Friday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Randle has had a disappointing season and this latest infraction doesn't help. He's nothing more than a WR4 heading into fantasy playoffs.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 11/28/14 5:54pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 28, and is listed as probable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Beckham, who's caught 31 passes for 503 yards and 2 scores over the last 4 weeks, is a no-doubt WR1 option in all leagues.
Odell Beckham Jr. - WRPosted 11/24/14 7:32pm 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.
