  Giants | Darius Slayton finishes with 93 yards    Sun Nov 15, 05:14 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton caught five passes for 93 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Slayton got a little banged up with a shoulder issue but also made a huge play to help the Giants get the win and ended up posting his best game in a month. He's still worth carrying through the bye.

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton caught one pass for six yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Slayton is a good receiver but he's being marginalized and missed in this offense. It's hard to trust him against Darius Slay and the Eagles next week but much better matchups are coming after the Giants Week 11 bye so don't drop him.

  Giants | Darius Slayton held in check    Fri Oct 23, 02:30 AM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton had two catches (on four targets) for 23 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Slayton faced Darius Slay and with Sterling Shepard back Daniel Jones didn't feel the need to force the ball to him. Next week against Tampa Bay will be a boom/bust outlook for Slayton, whose value is temporarily hurt but could still be on the rise with a weak second half schedule coming up for the Giants.

  Giants | Darius Slayton made big plays last year    Wed Jul 1, 04:19 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton posted five touchdowns of at least 25 yards last season, which was tied for most in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Injuries hit the Giants WR corps hard last year but Slayton was a bright spot with his big-play ability. This year, Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate return healthy but they don't stretch the field like Slayton does. We could see Slayton outperform his current ADP of WR38 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Darius Slayton set for big year?    Tue Jun 9, 06:36 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton could have a sophomore season comparable to Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp (2018) or Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (2013), according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com. Rosenblatt bases those comparisons on Slayton's rookie production of 740 yards, eight touchdowns and 48 receptions while working with fellow rookie QB Daniel Jones.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Slayton can take that next step. Injuries to Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard opened the door for Slayton in 2019 and the rookie came through in a big way. This year, Slayton is the slot receiver and that makes him a WR3/deep flex play with upside in 2020.

Footballguys view: The Giants are getting Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton back this week, but they are also giving their quarterback his first NFL start against a hot defense. It probably won't be a good day for the Giants passing game in Tampa.
