Player Notes
Nov 15 7:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton made five catches for 93 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. It was a nice bounce-back performance for fantasy managers after Slayton was targeted just once last week. Slayton saw seven targets in this game to lead the team. He's gone invisible at times, but Slayton also has had some big games this year and can be considered a WR3 in fantasy moving forward.

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton exited in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a shoulder injury, but has returned to the game. It's possible that Slayton will be below 100 percent for the rest of this one, lowering his ceiling and potentially giving more opportunities to Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate.

Nov 13 2:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is coming off a season-worst game last week in which he caught just one pass for six yards. Slayton has had huge games this season but has also gone invisible at times making him one of the more frustrating receivers to roster in fantasy. Slayton has five games this season with seven or more targets but also has three games with four or fewer targets. One of those games was a three target, two catch game versus the Eagles in Week 7 so fantasy managers should hope for a better result this time around. Golden Tate (knee) returning further complicates Slayton's target share in this matchup. Fantasy managers can start Slayton as a risky flex option in Week 10.

Nov 8 6:30pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton had his worst game of the season in Week 9 at Washington, catching his only target for six yards. Slayton was blanked all day by a strong Washington secondary that allows the fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Slayton has been a boom-bust option in fantasy all season and busted hard in this tough matchup. He'll have another tough matchup next week versus a Philadelphia defense that held Slayton to 23 yards on two catches in their first meeting.

From RotoBaller

Nov 6 7:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton will have his hands full versus the Washington Football Team on Sunday. Washington allows the fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers which is bad news for a Giants passing attack that ranks 28th in the NFL. Slayton has a couple of 100-plus yard efforts this season so he's capable of going off, but he also has been invisible at times with five games with three catches or fewer. Given the tough matchup, Slayton is a boom-or-bust WR3 for fantasy.

From RotoBaller

Nov 4 8:30pm ET

The New York Giants claimed wide receiver Dante Pettis off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday. Pettis was released by the 49ers after he fumbled a kickoff return in the Week 8 loss to the Seahawks. The former second-round pick turned out to be a bust for San Francisco and struggled to stay motivated. He failed to reel in his only target in five games for the Niners this year, but perhaps a change of scenery to the East coast will help him turn things around. Pettis will be buried on a depth chart that includes receivers Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, rookie Austin Mack and C.J. Board, however. Don't expect him to resurface from a fantasy standpoint anytime soon.

Nov 3 12:00am ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught five passes for 56 yards in a loss to the Buccaneers at MetLife Stadium. Slayton was targeted nine times - his third game this season with at least nine targets - but was still behind Sterling Shepard in the Giants pecking order. The Giants threw 41 times in this game which is abnormal for them so it is hard to trust Slayton continuing to get this volume. He is a borderline WR3 as a bye-week replacement in a matchup with Washington in Week 9.

Oct 30 2:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is coming off back-to-back two-catch games and faces another stiff test Monday versus Tampa Bay. Slayton has had some boom games this season including multiple 100-yard efforts, but he also has a tendency to disappear in New York's inconsistent offense. Slayton has three or fewer catches in five of seven games this season so it is risky to chase his upside as the top receiver for the Giants. Slayton is a boom-or-bust WR3 for fantasy in Week 8.

From RotoBaller

Oct 23 12:30am ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton had a quiet night on Thursday as he was blanketed by Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay. Slayton caught just two passes for 23 yards as New York's leading receiver was targeted just four times by QB Daniel Jones. Slayton has had big games this season, but has also gone silent at times as the second-year receiver has earned the dreaded boom/bust label in fantasy. He'll draw another tough matchup in Week 8 versus the Buccaneers.

From RotoBaller

Oct 21 9:00pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton has been the best receiving option in New York this season and will look to continue his success versus the Eagles in Week 7. In their first matchup last season, Slayton torched Philadelphia for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Auburn Tiger was quieter in their second meeting, but has had had splash performances this season including a two-touchdown game and two 100-yard efforts. While Slayton has had his ups, he has had quiet games as well and will draw the coverage of Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay in this matchup. The Giants only completed 12 passes last week so there is risk in starting Slayton, but he does have big-game upside as a WR3.

Oct 19 7:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton (foot) was a limited participant in Mondays practice after having sustained a foot injury during Sundays contest versus Washington. Slayton hauled in his first touchdown since Week 1 in the game, but came down awkwardly on his foot after the grab. With little time to recover before Thursdays outing against the Eagles, the fact that he was able to practice in any capacity bodes well for his odds of suiting up. Fantasy managers interested in Slayton will want to keep an eye on Sterling Shepards (toe) status as well, as the latter returning to the mix would zap some of Slaytons intrigue, even if he were fully healthy.

From RotoBaller

Oct 18 7:00pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in a win over Washington on Sunday. Slayton scored the first touchdown of the game in the first quarter on a 23 yard strike from Daniel Jones, but the New York offense couldn't muster much after that. Slayton has had a few solid games this season, but will be hard to trust anyone in the Giants offense. QB Daniel Jones completed just 12 passes in this game, so it was lucky for Slayton fantasy managers he got in the end zone. Slayton will be a flex-option in a Thursday night game versus the Eagles.

From RotoBaller

Oct 18 12:00pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton (concussion) is available to play on Sunday against the Washington Football Team. Slayton should serve as the primary target for quarterback Daniel Jones, and while downside exists, he's also already had a pair of 100-yard games and should be considered a solid WR3 play this week against this Washington defense.

From RotoBaller

Oct 17 2:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton had a big game in Week 6 and is in position to succeed again in Week 6 versus Washington. Slayton exploded for 129 yards on eight catches last week versus Dallas, his second 100-plus yard outing this season. Despite some down-games in-between big performances, Slayton has been heavily involved in the New York offense with at least seven targets in four of five games. Slayton is startable in fantasy as a WR3 or flex option this week.

Oct 15 5:00pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton (foot) was a limited practice participant on Thursday. Barring any setbacks on Friday or Saturday, Slayton should be good to go in Week 6 against Washington. Although the Washington Football Team is holding wideouts to the third-fewest fantasy points through five weeks, Slayton remains a safe WR2 target for fantasy managers with Sterling Shepard still on Injured Reserve. He's coming off season highs in targets (11), catches (eight) and receiving yards (129) in Week 5 and he leads the Giants in targets (40), catches (24) and touchdowns (three). Keep him in your starting lineups this Sunday.

From RotoBaller

Oct 11 11:30pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton hauled in eight catches for 128 yards during the loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The 23-year-old received a season-high 11 targets, surpassing the nine he got during the Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Although he will likely cool off once again at some point, especially with the subpar play of Daniel Jones, he possesses a relatively high upside that is hard to ignore, even when Sterling Shepard (toe) returns to the lineup.

From RotoBaller

Oct 8 10:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton has been quiet for fantasy managers after a huge Week 1 performance, but will look to bounce-back in a good matchup versus the Cowboys. Slayton had 100-plus yards and two touchdowns in the first game of the season but has made just three catches in each game since and has not found the end zone. Despite the poor stats, Slayton has still been involved in the offense with seven targets in back-to-back weeks. Dallas offers a much more favorable matchup than what Slayton has seen to this point making Slayton a borderline WR2/3 for fantasy in Week 5 given his target-floor.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 9:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton had another quiet game Sunday at the Rams catching just three of seven targets for 48 yards. Slayton has caught exactly three passes in three straight games after putting up a 102-yard, two-touchdown effort in Week 1. On the season, Slayton has only 188 receiving yards despite that hundred-yard effort and he hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. It's hard to trust anyone in the Giants passing game at this point, but they could have a bounce-back game in Week 5. The Cowboys Defense has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers so Slayton is startable as a WR3 or flex option.

From RotoBaller

Oct 2 11:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton has had two disappointing performances in a row after a massive game and will now face another tough test in a road matchup with the Rams. Slayton exploded on for 102 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 but has just six total catches since without a touchdown and one fumble lost. Slayton has always relied heavily on scoring touchdowns as he had eight on just 48 catches last season. That kind of rate is clearly unsustainable, especially given the ineptitude of the Giants offense as a whole. Slayton is a boom-or-bust flex option in fantasy leagues.

From RotoBaller

Sep 27 9:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught three passes on seven targets for 53 yards in a loss to the 49ers on Sunday. Slayton led the Giants in receiving yards and was tied with Golden Tate for the team lead in targets. Slayton had a huge game in Week 1, but has not found the end zone since. He has a decent floor as the number-one receiving option on a bad offense, but his upside is limited with QB Daniel Jones struggling. He'll have a tough matchup in Week 4 at the Rams.
