  Giants | Matt LaCosse needs surgery    Sun Aug 28, 12:53 PM

New York Giants TE Matt LaCosse (knee) needs to undergo knee surgery but still has a chance to return at some point during the 2016 season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Larry Donnell and Will Tye will split the first-team tight end snaps and targets. LaCosse was having a good summer, which was going to make this situation even more difficult to predict in fantasy, but his unfortunate surgery reduces the factors to divide by by one. It will still lack clarity week to week if Donnell and Tye stay healthy.

  Giants | Ryan Nassib struggling    Sat Aug 27, 09:33 AM

New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib has turned the ball over four times in the first two preseason games and does not have a touchdown during that span.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners may not want to move on from Nassib just yet. He's likely to move on to another team next year, and maybe he'll get a chance to compete for a larger role than just being Eli Manning's backup.

  Giants | Victor Cruz has good chance to play    Thu Aug 25, 01:51 PM

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said he is very optimistic about WR Victor Cruz's (groin) availability for the preseason game against the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: We aren't optimistic about Cruz's fantasy impact though. His ADP is brutal, as he stands as WR68 and we can't blame early drafters for avoiding him. You should take your cue from them.

  Giants | Victor Cruz impresses at camp    Tue Aug 23, 08:20 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not show any signs of a lingering groin injury at practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, and he displayed quickness off the line of scrimmage. Cruz was a full participant in practice for the first time since Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Let's see how Cruz does the day after a big day on the practice field. Oftentimes when returning from an injury, it's the day after that can show some soreness. If all signs look good, Cruz might be able to participate in the team's third preseason game this week. We feel the Giants will likely keep him out until the start of the regular season.

  Giants | Victor Cruz to practice in full    Tue Aug 23, 11:13 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will practice with no expected limitations Tuesday, Aug. 23. If all goes well this week, he'll play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: Cruz is getting closer and closer to his return. He's not the WR he used to be, but Cruz should play as a no.3 receiver for the Giants behind superstar Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard.

  Giants | Jasper Brinkley on track to start    Mon Aug 22, 07:23 PM

New York Giants LB Jasper Brinkley appears to be the leading candidate to start at middle linebacker this season because of his ability to stop the run.

Footballguys view: Brinkley is your traditional two-down thumper. He does a good job of finding the ball-carrier and Brinkley arrives at the play with natural violence.

  Giants | Matt LaCrsse day-to-day    Mon Aug 22, 05:40 PM

New York Giants TE Matt LaCosse (knee) is considered day-to-day because of a knee injury.

Footballguys view: LaCosse had been making some plays in training camp according to beat writers covering Giants training camp. The Giants have a history of taking unknown TEs and getting production out of them. Undrafted out of Illinois in 2015, LaCosse has a chance to be in the mix for the starting job this season -- if healthy.

New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris (knee) made an early exit from the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Aug. 20. He underwent X-rays on his knee, which came back negative. However, he is still expected to undergo an MRI exam Sunday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Harris is the slot receiver and return man for the Giants. They would have two spots to fill if he is going to miss time.

  Giants | Victor Cruz not ready to play    Sat Aug 20, 02:41 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Buffalo Bills. He will continue working with a trainer Sunday, Aug. 21, and plans to practice Monday, Aug. 22 in hopes of playing against the New York Jets next week.

Footballguys view: Cruz is undraftable in redraft leagues, and the Giants legion of excellent undrafted and journeyman wide outs should make the decision of whether to keep Cruz or someone like Roger Lewis, Darius Powe, or Myles White difficult for the team.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, but was able to do more work on the sidelines, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Footballguys view: There's no need to rush the veteran back. The Giants have been incredibly cautious with Cruz as he returns from multiple injuries. That's not going to change, and we don't expect to see him much if at all in the preseason.

  Giants | Odell Beckham still improving    Wed Aug 17, 10:35 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has been uncoverable in practice, and teammates believe he could have an even better season in 2016 because he was suspended one game and hurt for parts of two others last season.

Footballguys view: Beckham didn't quite equal his league-winning 2014 run last year, but he came close in the second half of the season. He'll also have the best running mate in his career to date in second-round pick Sterling Shepard.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard limited Monday    Mon Aug 15, 06:58 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (groin) was limited in practice Monday, Aug. 15, because of a groin injury.

  Giants | Victor Cruz still dealing with injury    Sun Aug 14, 01:49 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz's (groin) groin injury is still bothering him, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Footballguys view: Cruz is unlikely to be the same player he used to be as he comes back from a number of injuries. The team will take it easy on him through the rest of camp and the preseason with an eye on him being available for Week 1.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard practicing Sunday    Sun Aug 14, 12:42 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (groin) participated in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: We love Shepard's upside as a pro. The rookie is quick in and out of his breaks and he's dangerous with the ball in his hands. He should end up starting opposite superstar Odell Beckham Jr. Consider Shepard a WR4 or WR5 for your fantasy team this year.

  Giants | Victor Cruz on the field    Sun Aug 14, 12:37 PM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) participated in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: We may only see Cruz for a little bit of the preseason...if he even plays at all. The team wants him ready for the start of the regular season. Cruz should be their no.3 WR behind Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard. For fantasy purposes, Cruz is merely a WR7 at this point in his career.
