  Giants | Tavarres King lands on IR    Sat Dec 30, 01:46 PM

New York Giants WR Tavarres King (concussion) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: In eight games in 2017, King snared 18 catches for 240 yards and three touchdowns...with most of that production coming in one game. He's a restricted free agent who might not get a low-round tender offer from the Giants in 2018. Even in super deep dynasty leagues, we're not excited about his future in the pros.

  Giants | Week 16 injury report for NYG    Fri Dec 22, 05:17 PM

New York Giants LB B.J. Goodson (ankle) and WR Tavarres King (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 22, and they're ruled out for Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. S Nat Berhe (hamstring), S Landon Collins (ankle) and DE Jason Pierre-Paul (finger) were limited and are listed as questionable, while CB Brandon Dixon (heel, hamstring), TE Rhett Ellison (groin, finger), OT Ereck Flowers (groin), C Brett Jones (ankle), WR Travis Rudolph (hamstring), S Darian Thompson (knee) and DE Olivier Vernon (not injury related) were removed from the report.

Footballguys view: King being out means that while there are more targets for Roger Lewis and Sterling Shepard, there's also more chance that they'll be covered by Patrick Peterson on any given play. Shepard lines up in the slot, so he's the best Giants wide receiver play this week.

  Giants | Tavarres King dealing with concussion    Mon Dec 18, 02:48 PM

New York Giants WR Tavarres King (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We'll see if King can get cleared for the game in Week 16. King would likely get a matchup against Patrick Peterson (Cardinals) if he's healthy enough to play.

  Giants | Odell Beckham, Dwayne Harris on IR    Mon Oct 9, 04:42 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) and WR Dwayne Harris (foot) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Oct. 9. The team also re-signed WR Tavarres King. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Giants are going to be incredibly thin at the WR position in Week 6 as they travel to the Mile High City to play the Broncos on Sunday night. Avoid the Giants passing game at all costs this week.

Free-agent WR Corey Brown (Bills) and WR Tavarres King (Giants) worked out for the New England Patriots Friday, Sept. 22.

New York Giants WR Tavarres King was waived Monday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick (Broncos) in the 2013 NFL draft, King is a speedy receiver who has bounced around the league. He was inactive for the season opener against the Cowboys.

  Giants | Tavarres King seeing first-team reps    Sat Jun 10, 10:39 PM

New York Giants WR Tavarres King has been seeing first-team reps in OTAs, and Jordan Raanan of ESPNNewYork.com believes King will see time as the fourth receiver this year.

Footballguys view: King is a speed merchant that can take the top off the defense in the blink of an eye. He's never done much with the Broncos or the Panthers, and we're not expecting him to do much in 2017 either.

  Giants | Tavarres King competing for playing time    Fri Jun 2, 07:28 PM

New York Giants WR Tavarres King has been impressive during offseason workouts and will compete for playing time during training camp.

Footballguys view: King is a speed merchant who can 'eat cushion' quickly when going against off coverage. He's competing for the 4th spot on the depth chart in a best case scenario, so even with his impressive play at OTAs King is unlikely to be a fantasy factor in 2017.

  Giants | Victor Cruz might not have spot    Wed Aug 10, 09:59 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) might not have a spot on the 53-man roster if it comes down to merit, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan. WRs Tavarres King, Roger Lewis, WR Darius Powe and WR Myles White have all made more plays.

Footballguys view: Powe's measureables and Lewis's production make them the most intriguing names on this list. White might have the edge because of his history with head coach Ben McAdoo in Green Bay.

  Giants | Tavarres King making strong push    Thu Aug 4, 08:27 PM

New York Giants WR Tavarres King is making a strong push for the team's fifth wide-receiver spot. He caught at least a handful of balls at practice Thursday, August 4, continuing to build on his effective spring and early summer. He was doing damage all over the field as well.

Footballguys view: Fifth receiver is still on an NFL field, so we don't want to downplay the achievement, but it's pretty much of no use for fantasy purposes. While it's worth tracking overall, King shouldn't be on fantasy rosters this year.

  Buccaneers | Sign Tavarres King to PS    Tue Oct 28, 05:25 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free-agent WR Tavarres King (Jaguars) to their practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 28.

Footballguys view: King is a speedy receiver who can eat cushion quickly when a cornerback is playing off. He's struggled to latch on with two teams already in his short pro career. He's only a player fantasy owners should monitor in super super deep dynasty leagues.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars will employ a three-headed committee at running back again this week with Gerhart out. None are more than desperation plays against the Browns.
