  Giants | Saquon Barkley to sit Friday    Fri Aug 17, 05:44 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) has been ruled out of the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: We may see Barkley next week, but the best course of action for the Giants is make sure Barkley's hamstring is as healed as it can be by the time the Week 1 game against the Jaguars comes around.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley idle Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 10:25 AM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is out of practice again Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here, move along. As much as the Giants desperately need his help in the regular season, they won't risk him a ton in preseason. He's going as a top ten fantasy running back, and while that's always a little scary with rookies, we think his talent warrants it, hamstring issues or not.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley likely out Friday    Thu Aug 16, 02:34 AM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, and is not expected to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 17. The injury is not considered serious, and Barkley is day to day.

Footballguys view: The team can ill afford to have Barkley hurt or injured, given their short-term plans to win a Super Bowl before Eli Manning hangs up his spurs. Already a top-10 pick in fantasy drafts, the hamstring injury doesn't give owners pause, nor does it make us worry. The Giants will be cautious with him, and so we won't see him a ton in meaningless preseason games.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is working with a resistance band on the sidelines at practice Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Barkley's hamstring injury sounds minor, but the team will likely err on the cautious side in handling him, which might mean we won't see him again in the preseason.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley has strain    Mon Aug 13, 05:27 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) suffered a mild hamstring strain during practice Monday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Hamstring strains can be problematic if not given enough time to heal. Barkley was great in his preseason debut but this injury may slow him down a bit in the near future.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley shines in first action    Thu Aug 9, 09:15 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed four times for 43 yards in the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Barkley had a sensational run to begin his night and then had three minimal gains. He appeared to be more patient on some runs, but also took one outside that might have been better executed if he had stuck with the play as designed despite early penetration. This night will do nothing to lower his ADP, it will only raise it.

  Giants | Odell Beckham expected to sit    Thu Aug 9, 02:43 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is not expected to play in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Giants should bubble wrap him for all but perhaps the third or "dress rehearsal" game. We know what Beckham is capable of and we know how bad this offense looked without him. Preseason action or no, his ADP of 3rd receiver off the board and 11th overall is well deserved.

  Giants | Odell Beckham closer to extension?    Mon Aug 6, 01:31 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s agent has been having contract extension talks with the Giants over the last few days, and both sides are encouraged that an agreement could be reached before the start of the regular season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Good news for Beckham and the timeline should be expected in these situations. Any deal likely would make Beckham the highest paid receiver in the NFL. Healthy now after an injury-shortened 2017 season, Beckham is a WR1 for fantasy GMs who is going off the board in the late first or early second round of drafts in any format.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley plans to play Thursday    Mon Aug 6, 12:45 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he plans to play in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Not many starters will play a whole lot in the first week of the preseason. Barkley was a top pick in the draft for a reason, and he has the skill set to be a top-5 fantasy RB as a rookie. Fantasy GMs currently see him as a RB1 and are taking him off the board at RB6 (1.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Odell Beckham happy to be back    Sat Aug 4, 03:53 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) is thankful to be back on the field, and he said Saturday, Aug. 4, that his broken left ankle last season gave him a new perspective on life and football.

Footballguys view: Beckham is in the final year of his contract, but the Giants have reportedly opened negotiations with the superstar receiver on a new deal. Fantasy GMs know what to expect from a healthy Beckham, and that's why he is getting drafted in the first round of 12-team PPR leagues at WR3 (1.10).

He purchased a JUGS machine during the offseason to improve his concentration and cut down on the number of dropped passes and punts which plagued him last season.

  Giants | Odell Beckham contract talks open    Thu Aug 2, 08:27 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. opened contract talks with the team earlier this week, according to a source. His attendance to offseason workouts, organized team activities and minicamps did not go unnoticed by the organization.

Footballguys view: We still think they won't ink a deal until he has played a game or two, but this will get done and Beckham will continue to be the top-end WR1 we have seen in the past. The return from injury was a concern, but so far he has looked outstanding in training camp, so we aren't terribly concerned. He is going as the third receiver in early drafts and eleventh overall player, and we can't see a reason why he shouldn't produce numbers to support that.

  Giants | Evan Engram seen as three-down TE    Mon Jul 30, 12:55 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram should be considered a three-down tight end, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Engram has been working as an outside receiver at times, and it appears that he'll get enough targets to maintain his production level from last year even with the return of Odell Beckham. He's a consideration as high as TE4 and could finish higher.

New York Giants WR Cody Latimer worked as the No. 3 receiver during practice Thursday, July 26.

Footballguys view: The Giants have also been working Evan Engram at outside receiver at times, so the #3 receiver role in the Giants offense will be small. Latimer's main competition is Roger Lewis, but he should make the roster in any event because of his special teams value.

  Giants | Odell Beckham talks to start soon    Thu Jul 26, 12:01 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s contract negotiations will begin sooner rather than later, according to owner John Mara. Mara said he thinks Beckham is moving in the right direction and that it meant something that he was present for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Giants want to see him in action, though that may mean after a week or two of the actual season. They want to make sure that he's healthy and able to continue his positive attitude once the fur starts flying for real. We've got him as one of the top receivers in fantasy, and he is going off the board as the 11th player overall in early drafts -- exactly where he should be.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. reported for the start of training camp Wednesday, July 25, as expected.

Footballguys view: There was a concern that Beckham was going to hold out of training camp, but thoughts changed when he showed up to mandatory minicamp earlier this offseason. Beckham is in the final year of his rookie contract and is looking for a bounce-back season after 2017 was cut short (four games) due to a broken ankle.

  Giants | Sam Beal out for season    Wed Jul 25, 12:21 PM

New York Giants CB Sam Beal (shoulder) is out for the season due to a shoulder injury, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Giants used a third-round pick in the Supplemental Draft to select Beal earlier this month. He aggravated the injury at a practice earlier this week and it's disappointing development considering Beal's skill set and likelihood they would've used him as a reserve corner in sub-packages.
