Eli Manning - QBPosted 3/18/18 6:47pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning earned a $5 million roster bonus Sunday, March 18, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Giants had already publicly committed to Manning, so this was no surprise. He still has some solid weapons to throw to and should be a serviceable backup option for fantasy owners next year.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 3/11/18 8:54pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) has been catching passes from QB Davis Webb since the season ended.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Engram is up to speed after suffering an injury at the end of an otherwise solid rookie campaign. He should be considered a midrange TE1 heading into 2018.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 3/5/18 9:15pm ET
The New York Giants have interest in bringing back impending free-agent RB Orleans Darkwa, according to a source, and it 'just depends on the price.' It's possible a deal with Darkwa could get done before the start of free agency on Wednesday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Darkwa is coming off a breakout season, rushing for more yards in 2017 (751) than he did in his previous four years combined (287). Overall, he averaged a career-best 4.4 yards per carry and also added five touchdowns. Unfortunately, if he remains in New York and the club ends up drafting Saquon Barkley, there would be no reason to select Darkwa in any fantasy league other than as a handcuff.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 2/28/18 8:25pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. 'has told some people' that he would like to make at least $20 million per year on his next contract. He's entering the final season of his current deal in 2018.
Huddle Up: That's a lot of money for a wide receiver, and if he were to get that desired number, he'd be making more than some quarterbacks. Perhaps it is deserved, though, as Beckham is as talented as anyone at his position, even being the first wide-out in history to record at least 80 catches and 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. Despite missing most of his fourth campaign in 2017, Beckham should be one of the first wide receivers taken in drafts everywhere, especially in a contract year.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 2/28/18 10:39pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has 'years' left as a starting quarterback in the NFL, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: This sentiment would seem to indicate the Giants are indeed drafting running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall draft pick. It also points to New York sticking with Manning as their signal-caller. Despite seeing a drop-off in his stats, the 14-year veteran had a legitimate excuse, dealing with significant injuries around him to key players, not to mention a bad offensive line. He can serve as an acceptable backup in one-quarterback formats.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 2/27/18 3:44pm ET
New York Giants impending free-agent RB Orleans Darkwa is a player the Giants may try to re-sign before the start of free agency, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.
Huddle Up: Darkwa took over the starting job during the second half of the season and finished with 751 yards and five touchdowns. He may not be the starter if he re-signs with the Giants but could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 2/24/18 8:16pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) sent out a tweet Saturday, Feb. 24, indicating that he is unlikely to play in any preseason games.
Huddle Up: Beckham is still expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, and despite the fact that drama seems to follow him around, he still needs to be treated as a WR1.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 2/13/18 9:04am ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) finished with only 18 catches for 154 yards and played in only five games before he was lost for the season due to an ankle injury which required surgery. Given his limited effectiveness and the fact the Giants could save $5.1 million on the cap, the expectation is the Giants will cut ties with him, according to the New York Post's Paul Schwartz.
Huddle Up: Marshall isn't exactly known as a 'locker-room guy' - something new head coach Pat Shurmur may not want to deal with - so he could be one-and-done in New York. The 33-year-old receiver could agree to a pay cut to potentially save a spot on the roster, but the likelihood is New York will move forward with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard instead. Marshall's days as a fantasy starter are likely over.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 2/12/18 9:07am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) said he is doing well in his rehab from his ankle injury and expects to be ready for the start of the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Beckham probably will not do much during offseason workouts and is focused on preparing for the 2018 season. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and should be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in leagues next season.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 2/4/18 10:39am ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. said he hopes to receive a contract extension this offseason so he does not have to worry about the situation. 'Hopefully we get it done, just to get it over with,' Beckham said. 'I really want to do it so I can move past it. It's too much to be sitting around, thinking where I'm going to be.'
Huddle Up: Beckham is coming off a season-ending injury but should be fine for the start of the 2018 season. He has been one of the top receivers in the NFL since he was drafted and can be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 2/2/18 11:19am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he would not have a problem with the Giants if they decide to select a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Manning should be the starting quarterback for another year or two, but the Giants likely will take a quarterback at some point during the draft. Owners should consider Manning a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 1/26/18 8:40am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning 'has years left,' according to head coach Pat Shurmur, who says he's excited to work with him.
Huddle Up: Manning's destination in 2018 is to be determined, but anywhere he goes, he's limited to QB2 status in fantasy.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 1/21/18 10:23am ET
New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman reaffirmed his desire for QB Eli Manning to return to the team next season during a meeting with him earlier this month, according to sources. Gettleman also told Manning that the team will continue to scout the quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft and compare them to QB Davis Webb.
Huddle Up: It appears like Manning will be the Giants' starting quarterback for at least one more season. He finished this season with 3,468 yards and 19 touchdowns but played most of the season without his top two receivers. He has the chance to be a solid No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2018.
Odell Beckham - WRPosted 1/19/18 7:27pm ET
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will thrive if Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur becomes the next head coach of the Giants as expected, according to WR Stefon Diggs, 'because Pat knows how to get people the ball.'
Huddle Up: Ankle issues derailed Beckham in 2017, but he should return to his WR1 status in 2018. Prior to last year, he had delivered three straight seasons of more than 1,300 yards and at least 10 touchdowns.
Orleans Darkwa - RBPosted 1/1/18 8:20am ET
New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa rushed for 154 yards in Week 17 to hit 750 rushing yards on the season for a $200,000 incentive.
Huddle Up: The Giants could see a big overhaul on offense in the offseason, and it's unknown if Darkwa will be in their plans. He has shown flashes to give him some RB4 viability if he can at least be part of a committee next season.
Brandon Marshall - WRPosted 12/29/17 7:06am ET
New York Giants WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) has been running and will be free of all restrictions in a couple of weeks. He said he wants to play two more seasons.
Huddle Up: He's unlikely to return to the Giants next season, and after two disappointing years, he may be done as a fantasy asset. In the right situation, he could be worth a WR5 pickup in PPR formats.
Roger Lewis - WRPosted 12/29/17 1:06pm ET
New York Giants WR Roger Lewis (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 29, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Lewis probably will be the top target in the passing game this week with Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram ruled out. He has been targeted 32 times over the last three weeks. Lewis could be flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/29/17 5:42pm ET
New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said he is moving forward as if QB Eli Manning will be the starting quarterback next season but that does not rule out the possibility of the Giants selecting a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Manning has posted some decent numbers this season even though he lost both of his starting receivers to season-ending injuries. Owners should monitor the situation to see if Manning does stay with the Giants and if they add any competition for him this offseason. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2018.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/28/17 12:42pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) missed practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Look for the Giants to hold out Shepard in what will be a meaningless game. Shepard's 2017 fantasy value saw an influx with Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall sidelined, but he'll be more of a WR3 with those two healthy next year.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/28/17 12:37pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) was unable to practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Don't be surprised if the Giants sit their talented rookie in what will be a meaningless game. As for next year, drafting Engram as one of the first handful of tight ends should be commonplace.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/27/17 6:37am ET
Updating previous reports, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) has been diagnosed with bruised ribs after his X-rays were negative.
Huddle Up: Engram has a tough matchup against the Washington Redskins, but he's worthy of the TE1 start if he's cleared to play.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/27/17 1:25pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It's in the Giants' best interests to just rest their star tight end for the final game of the season. They have nothing to gain except possible aggravation of Engram's injury. He was already lucky enough to avoid a more serious injury. Rhett Ellison is a name to keep in your back pocket if Engrams sits.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/27/17 1:29pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: As is the case with Evan Engram, resting Shepard this week would seem to be the appropriate move so as not to risk aggravating Shepard's neck. Even if he plays, Shepard could be trailed by Josh Norman, which would limit his upside.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/25/17 5:34am ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) left the Week 16 game with a neck injury.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been a bright spot the last two weeks combining for 16 catches for 184 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks. He'd be a WR3 option against the Washington Redskins if he's able to go in the season finale.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/25/17 7:34am ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will start the Week 17 season finale, according to interim coach Steve Spagnuolo.
Huddle Up: Manning threw for 263 yards, but he didn't reach the end zone and threw two balls to the other team. He's not an option in fantasy against the Washington Redskins.
Evan Engram - TEPosted 12/24/17 3:03pm ET
New York Giants TE Evan Engram (ribs) suffered an injury to his ribs in the first half of the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he will not return.
Huddle Up: Engram has been a fantasy stud at times this season, and while his owners might be disappointed by this injury news he is going to be a stud for many years to come.
Roger Lewis - WRPosted 12/24/17 8:53pm ET
New York Giants WR Roger Lewis posted four receptions for 40 yards in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals on a team-high 11 targets.
Huddle Up: Lewis has had a golden opportunity with several receivers down for the count in New York, but he really hasn't done very much with his chance. Once everyone is totally healthy in 2018, Lewis is likely to tumble down the depth chart again.
Sterling Shepard - WRPosted 12/24/17 8:53pm ET
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with five grabs for 45 yards on eight targets in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Shepard struggled with injuries down the stretch, but he showed he can be a legitimate fantasy option when he is completely healthy.
Wayne Gallman - RBPosted 12/24/17 8:52pm ET
New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman rushed 10 times for 18 yards in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added six catches for 44 yards on eight targets.
Huddle Up: Gallman was getting plenty of looks down the stretch and he might have a future as an every-down back in New York depending on which way the team goes in the draft and in the free agent market.
Eli Manning - QBPosted 12/24/17 8:52pm ET
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 27 of his 45 pass attempts for 263 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: The Giants were shut out in this one, but it isn't all Eli's fault. The offensive line is in shambles, he lost Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall early in the season and Evan Engram was hurt in this one, too. It has been a lost season in Gotham.
