Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/19/18 12:43pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Engram rebounded last week from an abysmal Week 1, but his problem is that he's not guaranteed targets any given week. With Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley all demanding looks, it will be difficult for Engram to duplicate his rookie year. Even so, he's a low-end TE1 candidate for Week 3.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 9/17/18 12:39am ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley carried 11 times for only 28 yards but caught 14 of his 16 targets for 80 yards in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: As much as owners will take his fantasy production from this contest, Barkley was so much better than his final line indicated, making at least one tackler miss just about every time he touched the ball. However, the Giants' offensive line was getting beat so often that the rookie ended up seeing seven more targets than any of his teammates. Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week, including in Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 9/17/18 5:14am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was 33-for-44 for 279 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 2 loss against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: The numbers were decent from a fantasy perspective, but he was sacked six times. He'll face another swarm of pressure in Week 3 against the Houston Texans, where Manning will be a QB2.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/17/18 5:21am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram had seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Engram caught all seven targets as Eli Manning threw to him and Saquon Barkley 23 times as he was constantly under fire in the pocket. Engram will be a good TE1 start against the Houston Texans next week.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 9/17/18 5:36pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was sacked six times in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys, the highest amount since Oct. 12, 2014 against the Philadelphia Eagles when he was also sacked six times.
Huddle Up: The offensive line was a disaster, and the team was unable to run the ball at all. Manning passed, dumping it off 14 times to Saquon Barkley on a lot of short stuff as he ran for his life. If Manning is going to survive the season the offensive line is going to have to come together quickly. If you own fantasy stock in Manning, don't expect a lot of downfield stuff in the near future.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 9/17/18 5:39pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley recorded a franchise record with 14 receptions (for 80 yards) in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. The previous mark was 13, set by RB Tiki Barber on Jan. 2, 2000, also against the Cowboys.
Huddle Up: The offensive line was giving Eli Manning no time to throw the ball, so the veteran was dumping it off to the rookie running back early and often. The receptions just piled up, much to the delight of fantasy owners in PPR leagues especially. The poor offensive line play meant limited rushing numbers for Barkley, but he more than made up for it through the air.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/16/18 8:41pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys briefly due to a right ankle injury, but he was able to return. He finished with seven grabs, 67 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Most of Engram's production came in hurry-up late in the second half, but fantasy owners don't care how the yardage and scores come. However, it is nice when the production is spread out across the game. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 3 on the road against the Houston Texans.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 9/14/18 12:18pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Shepard is coming off a decent outing in Week 1 and was targeted seven times during that game. He could have some success against the Dallas Cowboys this week and has a chance to be a flex option in deeper leagues.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 9/13/18 9:28am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) should be a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Shepard was limited yesterday, so he'll be on the gridiron this weekend. As was the case in the offseason, Shepard owns a WR3 valuation at this juncture.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 9/12/18 1:07pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: As long as Shepard stays on the practice field he has a better than good chance of suiting up for Week 2. Shepard is used to flying under the radar in Odell Beckham's shadow, but he's comfortably in WR3 territory after a seven-target opening week.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 9/9/18 2:48pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 23-for-37 for 224 yards and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Manning was facing a tough Jaguars defense and was not able to find anyone in the end zone. He should have an easier matchup next week against the Dallas Cowboys but is not a strong starting option.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/9/18 3:01pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught two passes for 18 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Engram was coming off a concussion and was facing a tough Jaguars defense, so this result should not be shocking. He should have a better outing next week against the Dallas Cowboys and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 9/9/18 2:59pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught five passes for 48 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Shepard had a decent outing against a tough Jaguars defense and probably will continue to be the third option in the Giants passing game. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week against the Dallas Cowboys.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 9/9/18 2:56pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught 11 passes for 111 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Beckham probably had the hardest matchup this week as he was being covered by Jalen Ramsey but was able to finish with terrific numbers. He will continue to be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 9/9/18 2:52pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 106 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1. He also caught two passes for 22 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Barkley was being drafted as a No. 1 running back entering the season and showed that he will be able to handle that role well for owners. He will be a weekly starting option in all leagues and could be more involved in the passing game moving forward.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 9/8/18 7:00pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has 313 receptions in his first 47 games, and he needs seven receptions in the first three games of 2018 to set the NFL record for most catches in the first 50 games of his career.
Huddle Up: Beckham has put up huge numbers since entering the league, so it is no surprise that he could set some records along the way. A Week 1 matchup against a tough Jacksonville defense limits his DFS appeal, but he has too much upside to even consider benching in season-long formats.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/7/18 8:36pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram is a 'matchup nightmare,' according to Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone, and Marrone said Engram will need to be accounted for at all times in their Week 1 matchup.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars boast arguably the toughest defense in the NFL, but Engram is such a big part of the passing attack that he can still be deployed as a TE1 in the opener.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/5/18 11:52pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (head) was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol on Wednesday, Sept. 5, according to head coach Pat Shurmur, and Engram is expected to play Sunday, Sept. 9, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: That's good news for Engram owners as the second-year pro looks like one of the ascendant players at the position. He draws a tough matchup in Week 1 to be sure, but Engram still rates as a low-end TE1 this Sunday.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 9/4/18 11:35pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. could be used to return punts in certain situations, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Shurmur didn't exactly said he would use Beckham, he should indicated there's no reason he "can't." Fantasy owners could probably think of a few, but no matter what Shurmur says it's hard to imagine him exposing Beckham on returns very often. Steady on, folks, Beckham remains an elite fantasy WR.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 9/3/18 10:07am ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) told the team's website he is 'definitely ready for a full workload' in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Barkley did not play most of the preseason because of a hamstring injury, and the Giants were smart to let him heal up. He has been participating in practice for a couple weeks without incident. His Week 1 matchup is brutal to be sure, but Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week because he is such a gifted receiver in addition to being a highly elusive runner. He should be a solid fantasy RB1 all season long.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 9/3/18 2:48pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) was on the field during practice Monday, Sept. 3, but was wearing a non-contact jersey during team drills.
Huddle Up: Engram needs to be cleared by independent doctors because he will be allowed to play, so owners will need monitor the situation during the week. He is a No. 1 fantasy tight end when healthy, but owners will need another option ready if Engram is ruled out.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 8/27/18 10:28am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is close to agreeing to a five-year contract extension that would make him the highest paid receiver in the NFL, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Beckham participated in training camp despite his contract situation and it appears that he will be rewarded with a big extension. He is one of the top receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and should be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 8/27/18 10:16am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: Engram is going through the concussion protocol and will not practice until he passes his concussion tests. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation leading up to Week 1 to see if he is in danger of missing the game. He should be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all leagues when healthy.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 8/27/18 11:20am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with the Giants Monday, Aug. 27, worth $95 million, according to a source. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Beckham has been one of the top receivers in the NFL since entering the league and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Giants. He should be one of the first receivers selected in all drafts and will be a weekly starting option.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 8/26/18 4:55pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) participated in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: Barkley appears to be on track for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is expected to be a big factor on offense during his rookie season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 8/25/18 10:54am ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol after he suffered a concussion in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: Engram has a little over two weeks to be cleared if he has a chance to play in Week 1. Engram is coming off a terrific rookie season and should have a big role in the passing game this season. He will be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues if he is healthy.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 8/24/18 5:59pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) suffered a concussion during the preseason game Friday, Aug. 24, and will not return.
Huddle Up: Engram will need to pass his concussion tests before he is allowed back on the field, so his status for Week 1 could be uncertain at this point. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Engram will be a No. 1 fantasy tight end this season when healthy.
Saquon Barkley - RBPosted 8/24/18 7:57pm ET
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) said his injured hamstring is feeling 'good,' and he expects to be ready to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Barkley should see all the touches he can handle this year, but hamstring injuries can linger. He still deserves to be selected as a RB1, but don't treat him like a top-five option at the position just yet.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 8/24/18 8:40pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught all seven of his targets for 78 yards in a 22-16 preseason win over the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: Shepard won't monopolize the targets when Odell Beckham Jr. is on the field, but he has WR3 potential as the No. 2 target in the passing game.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 8/23/18 4:07pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has made some progress in contract extension talks with the Giants, and both sides believe a deal could be agreed to before the start of the regular season, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Beckham probably would become the highest paid receiver if he agrees to a deal within the next few weeks. He should be one of the most valuable receivers in fantasy leagues this season and will be selected in the first or second rounds of all drafts.
