|Will Tye "becoming one of Eli's favorite targets" -- Thu Dec 24 5:45 pm --|
Expected to see increased action with Beckham suspended
|Will Tye has averaged five targets over the Giants' past five games and should be an even bigger part of the offense in Minnesota. It's possible Tye even becomes Manning's go-to receiver.
"He's doing some things well, he's progressing," offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said. "He definitely seems like he's turning into one of Eli's favorite targets in the offense." (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Tye has at least five catches in four of his last five contests, including a touchdown in each of his last two. He has registered at least eight targets twice over that same span and has been much more dependable than Rueben Randle or Dwayne Harris this season. The odds are better than 50-50 that Tye ends up being Manning's go-to guy this week.
|Giants star wideout won’t play against Vikings -- Wed Dec 23 5:32 pm --|
|Odell Beckham’s one-game suspension was upheld, making the Giants wideout ineligible to play against the Vikings Sunday night.
"I dropped the ball on sportsmanship on Sunday," Beckham said in a statement via Twitter.
(NY Daily News)|
FF Today's Take: The game might not mean much to the Giants, but losing Odell Beckham, Jr. this week puts fantasy owners in a bind heading into semifinal matchups and championships this weekend. Eli Manning and the Giants will need Rueben Randle, Dwayne Harris and Shane Vereen to step up in the passing game. Meanwhile, Eli Manning's fantasy stock plunges downward in a bad matchup without his best receiving threat available.
|Odell Beckham Jr. suspended one game -- Mon Dec 21 2:55 pm --|
Gaints WR will miss Week 16
|Odell Beckham Jr. has been suspended for 1 game. Official statement to follow. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Beckham repeatedly got into it with Panthers DB Josh Norman yesterday including an obvious helmet to helmet initiated by Beckham. Beckham's loss is a huge blow to fantasy owners playing for a championship next week. Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris should see increased roles with Beckham out.
| Victor Cruz to undergo season-ending calf surgery -- Mon Nov 16 4:50 pm --|
Missed most of 2014 season with torn patellar tendon
|Victor Cruz will not play this season. The Giants wideout, who missed a majority of the 2014 season with a torn patellar tendon, announced Monday that he was undergoing calf surgery.
Before the 2015 campaign started, and even before the calf injury, we noted that the Cruz-Odell Beckham tag team this season was a pipe dream. A torn patellar tendon is a brutal, grueling injury that can have ripple effects throughout the lower body. While the Giants maintain that the two are not related, it's hard to imagine this calf injury surfacing out of thin air. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Cruz was always a longshot to contribute this season given how few players have come anywhere close to their usual levels following patellar tendon tears. There is no more guaranteed money left on Cruz's contract, which makes it very possible for the Giants to part ways with him if they choose to do so. In the meantime, Dwayne Harris will occupy his usual spot in the slot and remain a decent WR4/WR5 option in fantasy leagues.
