  Giants | Evan Engram listed as limited    Fri Dec 6, 06:58 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: Engram should be back Monday night against the Eagles. With Eli Manning at quarterback, things could be interesting for the Giants offense. We love Engram's talent but it will be difficult to trust him this first week back. He's a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 14.

  Giants | Eli Manning expected to start on MNF    Thu Dec 5, 02:48 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is 'very likely' to start against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Dec. 9, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Manning's return makes the Monday night game a little more interesting. Sure, he's not the player he used to be but the Giants may want to 'win one for Eli' and turn in a spirited performance (or it could be a dumpster fire). Checking down to Saquon Barkley is going to be a thing again, so adjust all expectations for the Giants offense accordingly.

  Giants | Golden Tate likely back    Wed Dec 4, 12:45 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is likely to return in Week 14.

Footballguys view: We'll watch Tate's practice status during the week. He's a WR2 or flex option in PPR leagues in Week 14. Tate will be a 'relief valve' receiver for Eli Manning (Daniel Jones is in a walking boot) on Monday night against the Eagles.

  Giants | Evan Engram has positive outlook    Wed Dec 4, 12:37 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) has a strong chance to return in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Giants offense here. Engram's practice status will have to be monitored this week and make sure to check your waiver wire to see if someone dumped him when he was injured. The Giants play the Eagles on Monday night, so Fantasy GMs likely have better options at the tight ends position in Week 14.

  Giants | Daniel Jones not being shut down    Wed Dec 4, 12:33 PM

Updating an earlier report, New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) isn't under consideration to be shut down for the season, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Jones isn't going to be shut down for the season, but the team will likely give him rest in Week 14. We should see Eli Manning start at quarterback on Monday night against the Eagles.

  Giants | Daniel Jones likely out    Wed Dec 4, 11:12 AM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is in a walking boot with a mild high ankle sprain and will likely be out for Week 14.

Footballguys view: The Giants insist that Jones should return at some point later this year. This week on Monday night the Giants take on the Eagles, and former starter Eli Manning will get back in the huddle. Adjust expectations for the Giants offense accordingly.

  Giants | Daniel Jones nursing ankle injury    Mon Dec 2, 12:58 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) 'got his ankle twisted' in Week 13 versus the Green Bay Packers but is 'fine' Monday, Dec. 2, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Jones is going through the rigors of an NFL season and playing while banged up a bit. He might be limited in practice this week but Jones should play against the Eagles on Monday night in Week 14.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard finds end zone    Sun Dec 1, 05:34 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Shepard caught an early score to make for a decent line in what should have been a bigger day with Golden Tate out. He's just a what the heck flex if Tate is back next week against the Eagles, but the matchup is good.

  Giants | Six receptions for Darius Slayton    Sun Dec 1, 05:31 PM

New York Giants WR Darius Slayton caught six passes for 44 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Footballguys view: Slayton got more targets with Golden Tate out but couldn't turn any into big plays. He'll still be worth a look as a WR3/Flex against the Eagles next week.

  Giants | Kaden Smith plays well in Week 13    Sun Dec 1, 05:27 PM

New York Giants TE Kaden Smith caught six passes for 70 yards against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Smith has been productive in two straight games as the starter with two Giants tight ends out. If he can start against the Eagles next week, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues and he is putting himself on the deep dynasty radar.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley posts over 100 total yards    Sun Dec 1, 05:19 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 83 yards on 19 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 32 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Barkley got going as a runner to an extent but he still had little effect on the outcome of this game and fantasy matchups this week. He'll still be in lineups next week against the Eagles, but expectations will be low.

  Giants | Daniel Jones finishes three INTs    Sun Dec 1, 05:13 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones went 20-for-37 for 240 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Jones was a game competitor in his first ever snow game, but he was overmatched in this one. He'll face an easier opponent next week in Philadelphia in a QB2/Superflex worthy spot.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) on Friday, Nov. 29, was ruled out of the team's Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers with a concussion.

Footballguys view: Sterling Shepard was an excellent PPR play when Tate was out earlier this year and should be in lineups this week. Darius Slayton also gets a bump on this news, but Daniel Jones job gets a little more difficult without Tate.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out of practice again Thursday, Nov. 28.

New York Giants WR Da'Mari Scott was elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Wednesday, Nov. 27. To fill Scott's spot on the practice squad, free agent WR Reggie Z. White was re-signed.

Footballguys view: This is a clear sign that the team is preparing for Golden Tate to miss Week 13. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard become better plays this week in the good matchup against the Packers secondary.

  Giants | Kareem Martin returns to practice    Thu Nov 28, 01:00 AM

New York Giants LB Kareem Martin (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday, Nov. 27. Martin, who is currently on the Reserve/Injured list, now has 21 days to officially be activated.

Footballguys view: Martin has experience in James Bettcher's defense going back to their time together in Arizona, so he could help provide a boost to the pass rush if he gets back on the field.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley not blaming slump on injury    Wed Nov 27, 10:58 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley was adamant Wednesday, Nov. 27, that his relatively poor play of late isn't the result of injury. 'Did I look hurt?' Barkley said, interrupting a question about a 22-yard run against the Chicago Bears in Week 12. 'I know that's where you're going towards (with this question). So did I look hurt? No. So let's stop making an excuse that I'm hurt. I'm not hurt. Let's stop making an excuse that I'm not 100%. No one's 100%.'

  Giants | Sterling Shepard registers five catches    Sun Nov 24, 07:26 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard ended up with five catches for 15 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: We're happy to see him back on the field after his two concussions and an unexpected re-entry into protocol as he was poised to return to the field earlier this year. He's worth rostering down the stretch against a schedule of weak pass defenses to see if he heats up.
