Week 1 vs. WAS
Receiving: 2 / 12 / 0 on 5 targets
Toomer had two catches for 12 yards and six targets in the first half. One of those targets was a short pass to the corner of the end zone that went incomplete, but did draw a pass interference penalty. In second quarter, QB Eli Manning tried to hit Toomer on a short route in the end zone, but they were crossed up on communication it looked like as he quit running on the route and the ball went incomplete. Toomer only had one target in the second half and zero receptions.
Week 2 vs. STL
Receiving: 6 / 67 / 1 on 12 targets
Toomer was the most targeted Giants player on the day as he converted his 12 targets into six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. He seemed to be wide open most of the day and had Eli thrown a few balls with a little more touch, Toomer could have had an even bigger day. Toomer showed good speed after the catch as he fought hard after initial contact to gain extra yardage. His touchdown reception came in the third quarter on a 10 yard toss over the middle from quarter back Eli Manning. Toomer extended to bring the ball in on a pass over the middle and was able to secure it for his first touchdown of 2008.
Week 3 vs. CIN
Receiving: 5 / 64 / 0 on 9 targets
Toomer was targeted nine times against the busy Bengals secondary, hauling in five balls for 64 yards. He was a great option for Eli Manning who had trouble getting the ball to his main deep threat and provided the much needed spark to get them in scoring range during overtime. With less than 10 minutes to play in overtime Toomer hauled in a 31 yard catch, toeing the sideline and getting both feet down before falling out of bounds. It was this grab that put the Giants in field goal range for the winning score.
Week 5 vs. SEA
Receiving: 4 / 64 / 0 on 5 targets

Week 8 vs. PIT
Receiving: 2 / 39 / 0 on 3 targets

Week 13 vs. WAS
Receiving: 5 / 85 / 1 on 9 targets
Toomer tied a team high in targets, catching five of nine balls for 85 yards and a score. He provided Manning with another reliable target to move the chains and showed that he still can make the big play, winning a one on one match up down the sidelines and hauling in a 40 yard pass for New York's first touchdown of the game. With Burress out Toomer looked to be more involved in the vertical passing game rather than his usual role as possession receiver.
Week 14 vs. PHI
Receiving: 2 / 25 / 0 on 5 targets
Toomer was defended well on the day, catching only two of his seven targets for 25 yards. He could not find his normal pockets in the secondary as the Eagles threw various defensive packages at the Giants for four quarters. He was a second favorite target of Manning's with his seven looks and still appears that he can run with even the toughest of NFL defenses.
Week 15 vs. DAL
Receiving: 3 / 32 / 0 on 7 targets
Toomer's first reception came in the second quarter and went for a pickup of 13, while his other two catches came in the fourth quarter and totaled 19 yards. All of Toomer's grabs went for first downs and he was the intended receiver on QB Eli Manning's second interception.
