Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 16 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 44 / 1 rec)
Cody Latimer didn't register too many catches but he made them count and even managed to get into the endzone. Latimer almost scored on a deep out pattern but the pass was batted down at the last second as the defender was just able to get to it. It didn't matter as he scored shortly afterwards. Latimer secured a slant pattern outside in the redzone before turning up-field and squeezing between several defenders for the touchdown. Latimer had several more catches, mostly on slant plays to take advantage of soft coverage and he did what was asked of him well. Latimer has too many receivers to compete with to be a reliable fantasy starter but will have the odd touchdown here and there.
2019 Week 8 vs DET (3 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer got very few looks on Sunday but made some nice catches. He ran a good comeback pattern early in the game and snagged a deep pass outside with one hand while maintaining control in bounds for a big conversion. Latimer was largely invisible for the rest of the game however. The Giants have too many options ahead of Latimer and this is very unlikely to change as the season progresses, best to leave Latimer on the waiver wire.
2019 Week 7 vs ARI (5 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer caught only short balls and did not feature down the field for the Giants. He was tackled immediately on several of his touches and Jones didn't venture down the field very often. Latimer is a small time role player for the Giants and should not be started in fantasy.
2019 Week 6 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer got only one target on Thursday night and really was not a part of the Giants offensive plan. It would have been fair to expect a slight increase in his targets with all the injuries the Giants have but Jones simply didn't look his direction for the most part. Latimer was targeted on a slant play but he wasn't open. Latimer should not be played or owned in most leagues.
2019 Week 4 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Latimer had a long gain on a crossing pattern nullified when he was called for pass interference after running into and pushing the defender covering him in his route stem.
2019 Week 2 vs BUF (5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer didn't manage much in this game and was forced to leave in the second half due to a concussion he sustained on a big hit. The Giants and Manning struggled to connect downfield and this is something Latimer can excel but it didn't happen on Sunday. Manning missed him on a comeback play where he was wide open. Latimer made a nice grab in traffic on a curl route. His day ended on a sour note however as he took a big hit in the second half. Latimer got the first down on a nice slant play inside on fourth down but the defensive back hit his head awkwardly. Latimer left the game straight away and did not return.
2019 Week 1 vs DAL (8 / 3 / 74 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer made some explosive plays for the Giants on Sunday and looked like a real threat at times. He made a terrific one handed grab along the sideline, securing it in bounds and getting away from the defense for some extra yards. Latimer did an excellent job keeping the play alive for Manning, getting free in the secondary and giving Manning a massive window to throw into along the sideline for a big play. Manning tried to hook up with Latimer on a few other occasions but the defense did an excellent job in coverage, not leaving much separation. Latimer has upside with his explosive play but the consistency is unlikely to be there as a fantasy option.
