  Giants | Sterling Shepard will suit up    Sat Oct 31, 05:52 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (shoulder, toe) was a limited participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 31, but is not listed on the Week 8 injury report.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that there was no re-aggravation of his toe injury last week against the Eagles. The Giants are being cautious with Shepard this week as they prepare for a Monday night game against the Buccaneers. Fantasy GMs should consider Shepard a WR3/flex option in Week 8.

  Giants | Devonta Freeman ruled out     Sat Oct 31, 05:50 PM

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) did not practice Saturday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for the Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs weren't counting that much on Freeman anyway...especially against a defense like the Buccaneers. With Freeman out, the Giants turn to Wayne Gallman as their lead back. We see Gallman as a RB3/flex play in Week 8.

New York Giants S Adrian Colbert (shoulder) and CB Darnay Holmes (neck) were limited participants in practice Saturday, Oct. 31, but are not listed on the Week 8 injury report. WR C.J. Board (concussion) was a full participant and is listed as questionable.

  Giants | Wayne Gallman expected to start    Sat Oct 31, 12:53 PM

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman is expected to be the team's primary running back Monday, Nov. 1, in Week 8 with starter Devonta Freeman likely to miss the game with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: That is the plan and Gallman should get a starter's workload. However, Fantasy GMs shouldn't rush to get him in the lineup. Against a tough Buccaneers defense, Gallman is likely going to produce like an RB3/flex play in Week 8.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley having surgery    Fri Oct 30, 11:50 AM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) told NFL Network's Kim Jones that he's having surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament Friday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind when calculating when Barkley should be back on the field. Letting the swelling going down in his knee was part of the delay, but the surgeon being the team doctor for the Dodgers, who just completed a World Series victory, also contributed to the date being this late.

  Giants | Corey Coleman joins practice squad    Tue Oct 27, 05:02 PM

Free-agent WR Corey Coleman (Giants) was signed to the practice squad of the New York Giants Tuesday, Oct. 27. LB Trent Harris was signed to the active roster from the practice squad. Free-agent DB Montre Hartage (Giants) and TE Rysen John (Giants) were also signed to the practice squad. C Javon Patterson had his practice squad contract terminated.

Footballguys view: Coleman has talent but injuries and inconsistencies have caused him to fail as a pro. He's back with the Giants and may actually work his way up to the active roster.

  Giants | Devonta Freeman out of practice    Tue Oct 27, 12:41 PM

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) is out of practice Tuesday, Oct. 27. He was working off to the side.

Footballguys view: Freeman's ankle is going to keep him limited. The Giants play against the Buccaneers on Monday night. That means Freeman has until Saturday to be a full participant. If he can't play in Week 8, Wayne Gallman would be the lead running back for the Giants.

  Giants | Teams calling on Evan Engram    Mon Oct 26, 02:19 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram has received trade interest from other teams, but the Giants don't appear willing to deal him unless they're blown away with an offer.

Footballguys view: Engram can be a quality starter when healthy. It might be time for him to get a fresh start and that's why teams are sniffing around the former first-round pick. The Giants insist that Engram is part of their plans but they'd move him if they got an offer they can't refuse.

  Giants | Saquon Barkley to undergo ACL surgery    Sat Oct 24, 08:39 AM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is scheduled to undergo reconstructive surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament next week and doctors are optimistic that he will be ready for training camp. Barkley needed to wait for his medial collateral ligament injury to heal before he was eligible to undergo ACL surgery.

Footballguys view: It usually takes around 12 months for ACL injuries to fully heal after surgery. That means Barkley is likely to be limited in training camp next year and may not be quite himself until the midway point of the 2021 season. We'll be watching closely for any updates during the next offseason.

  Giants | Markus Golden shipped to Arizona    Fri Oct 23, 05:02 PM

New York Giants LB Markus Golden was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round draft pick Friday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Golden was a second round pick of the Cardinals in 2015 and the organization knows him well. It was a minimal price for a previously productive pass rusher, which was a big need after Chandler Jones was lost for the year.

  Giants | Nine stops for Blake Martinez    Fri Oct 23, 02:49 AM

  Giants | Sterling Shepard scores in return    Fri Oct 23, 02:42 AM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard had six receptions, 59 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Shepard was targeted eight times.

Footballguys view: Shepard should be added in all formats if he wasn't already. Daniel Jones is obviously most comfortable throwing to him in the short and intermediate range and should be targeted frequently against the Bucs next week.

  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 | Six grabs for Evan Engram    Fri Oct 23, 02:04 AM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram caught six passes for 46 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also carried the ball twice for three yards.

Footballguys view: Engram still isn't being used as a downfield receiver often enough and he dropped a pass that could have iced the game. It's not outlandish to see him as a trade deadline target with his poor performance and speaking out about his usage recently.

  Giants | Wayne Gallman scores in loss    Fri Oct 23, 01:52 AM

New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman carried the ball 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Gallman added five receptions for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Gallman was productive with his work, but he might not get the start next week since Devonta Freeman has an extra three days to rest and heal after the Thursday night game. Tampa is up next week so whoever starts will have a dim outlook.

  Giants | Daniel Jones has memorable evening    Fri Oct 23, 01:30 AM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 187 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. He ran four times for 92 yards and also lost a fumble.

Footballguys view: Jones was alone in the open field on a long run but got tripped up by the turf monster. He was faster than any quarterback in the last two years on the run, and he also got some more intermediate throws called with Sterling Shepard back. The Tampa defense is rough next week, but after that Jones may become streamer worthy and his value is definitely on the rise in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

  Giants | Devonta Freeman injures ankle    Thu Oct 22, 11:15 PM

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) suffered an ankle injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7 and is questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Wayne Gallman was serviceable in Freeman's stead, but no matter who starts the matchup against Tampa Bay next week is bad for running backs, so don't rush out to get Gallman.
