From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 15): Ogletree suffered a head injury of unspecified severity during the game on Sunday - he'll be evaluated further on Monday.
Week 16: at St. Louis Rams
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. In case you haven't noticed, Eli Manning has won his last two starts, thrown 250 or more yards in each game, and hooked up with Odell Beckham Jr. for four TDs in the last two weeks. Last week, Manning threw 23/34 for 250 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions vs. Washington, finding Beckham for all three TDs (15 targets for 12/143/3 receiving). He was followed by Rueben Randle (four for 2/30/0) and Kevin Ogletree (three for 3/25/0). Larry Donnell saw two targets for 2/11/0 receiving. The Giants' offense has (finally) found their footing here in the last month of the NFL season. The Rams' pass D gave up 16/30 for 131 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, and generated one sack for -8 yards vs. Arizona last week, after holding Washington to 23/36 for 179 net yards passing, zero TDs and two iterceptions thrown, with seven sacks taken for -43 yards two games ago. That's some stout pass D, friends. This will be a good test of the Giants' progress in this phase of the game - it's a tough matchup for Manning and friends.

2014 Week 13 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Kevin Ogletree made only two catches on Sunday but rarely sees the field as a Giant this season. Ogletree managed to get wide open on a slant play early over the middle using his quickness and picked up a big first down. Ogletree hauled in another big slant inside after a well thrown pass from Eli Manning, placing it perfectly in stride for Ogletree to get as many yards after the catch was possible. Ogletree is rarely targeted in this offense and has bounced around the league as a possession receiver. He is not a viable option in fantasy for the Giants however as he is buried on the depth chart with little upside to offer at this stage in his career.
2014 Week 15 vs WAS (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Kevin Ogletree made a decent showing on Sunday for his standards with the Giants, catching three passes and showing he can get open at times. Ogletree ran a nice route on a deep in pattern, getting a lot of separation from his defender for Manning to throw a strike for a first down. Ogletree got open again on a short curl outside and turned upfield for yards after the catch. Ogletree caught a short out as his last catch, for minimal yards. Ogletree has quickness but will unlikely ever produce decent fantasy numbers as a Giant as he is buried under this depth chart of young receivers.
Latest NewsGiants | Rueben Randle benched (Sun Dec 14, 09:32 PM) - New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was benched for at least the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, and it might have been longer had WR Kevin Ogletree (head) not suffered a head injury. Our View: The headline should read; Rueben Randle benched (AGAIN). We've seen this before with Randle this season. He's not a fantasy factor for championship fantasy games in Week 16, and Randle has little dynasty value.
