Summary

Both Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard missed significant time last year, which opened the door for rookie Darius Slayton. Slayton was the 19th receiver drafted last year, but ended up one of the most productive rookies. He caught 48 passes for 740 yards and 8 touchdowns in 14 games. From a fantasy perspective, Slayton (12.1 PPR points per game) was outscored by both Tate (14.0) and Shepard (14.0) on a per game basis last year, although that's misleading because it includes the games where Slayton was a backup and played less than 50% of snaps early in the season. Slayton will play primarily out of the slot when all three receivers are healthy, and has a capped fantasy ceiling but also a high floor. View Slayton as a Top-40 receiver with upside. (May 5)

Latest News

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.

Our 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.
