2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns opened a huge hole and the wide receiver position for the Giants. Some believed that the Giants would look to the NFL Draft to sign a big-bodied player who could stretch the field and give Eli Manning a much-needed target on the outside.

Instead, the NY front office signed slot receiver Golden Tate to a free agent contract to play alongside Sterling Shepard. It was a head-scratching move considering the Giants already had two viable slot receivers in Shepard and tight end Evan Engram. Tate played outside earlier in his career in Seattle, but he found most of his success running routes from the slot.

Based on their age, it is likely that the Giants will move the younger Shepard outside as the X receiver and Corey Coleman as the Z, with Tate in the slot and Engram at tight end. A formation like this could work, but a player like Tate who relies on volume and does not score a ton of touchdowns did not make a ton of sense for the Giants.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Daniel Jones in walking boot with ankle sprain
Eli Manning likely to start Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 4, 10:53 am

New York Giants
Daniel Jones in a boot + has moderate high ankle sprain, per Pat Shurmur. He couldn’t play if Giants had game today. Shurmur compared it to what Saquon Barkley had, slightly less severe. Barkley missed three games. So get ready for the return of Eli Manning on Monday vs Eagles. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It will be Eli Manning this week against the Eagles. On a positive note for the Eagles offense, it sounds like TE Evan Engram and WR Golden Tate could be back in action. This is a decent matchup for Manning against the Eagles who've given up the 16th most FPts to quarterbacks and the 4th most FPts to wide receivers.


Injury Tate, Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 13
Giants short-handed against the Packers
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 12:01 pm

New York Giants
OUT for Sunday vs. Packers: WR Golden Tate (concussion), TE Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), LS Zak DeOssie (back/wrist) and S Jabrill Peppers (back). (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants will be short-handed against the Packers this week with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer working as the top three wideouts. Kaden Smith and Scott Simonson will fill the void at TE but neither are viable fantasy options.


Injury Tate, Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday
Tate suffered a concussion in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 27, 12:37 pm

New York Giants
Rhett Ellison, Evan Engram, Golden Tate and Jabrill Peppers all DID NOT practice. (Matt Lombardo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tate is dealing with a concussion suffered last week. He'll be in a race to get cleared before Sunday's game against the Packers. With Engram and Ellison still banged up, Kaden Smith would make another start at tight end.


Injury Golden Tate in concussion protocol
Dealing with concussion suffered in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 25, 5:05 pm

New York Giants
Injury update: Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol. Cause of Golden’s concussion is the way he landed on the touchdown reception. (Giants.com)

FFToday's Take: Tate has been a rock-solid WR3 since he returned from his season-opening four-game suspension, so his absence will be felt if he must miss a game or two. However, Sterling Shepard returned from his own concussion in Week 12 and would almost certainly replace Tate in the slot if Tate cannot play. Consider Shepard a WR3 with some decent upside in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.


Injury Evan Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 12
Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will fill the void at TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 22, 12:45 pm

New York Giants
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) were officially ruled out for Sunday vs. Bears. Engram said he did some running Friday and felt good. Eyes on next week. TEs Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will assume a heavy role this week. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Engram out, fantasy owners can look to other options than Simonson and Smith at the tight end position. The Giants are expected to have their top three wide receivers (Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton) available against the Bears.


Injury Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday
Unlikely Engram plays in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 20, 11:08 am

New York Giants
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) not practicing. Would seem to be an upset if Engram's ready for Sunday vs. Bears. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's looking like another missed game for Engram who last played in Week 9. If he sits, expect the Giants to lean on their three wide receiver set of Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard against the Bears.


Injury Sterling Shepard not expected to play Week 8
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 24, 1:08 pm

New York Giants
Saquon Barkley (ankle) practiced fully for the Giants today. WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) remained limited. He will not be playing Sunday in Detroit. (Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Another missed week for Shepard means Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram will be the top targets for Daniel Jones against the Lions. Shepard has suffered two concussions this season but does have a chance to return in Week 9 against the Cowboys.


Injury Sterling Shepard not expected to play Week 7
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 18, 7:30 am

New York Giants
WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) not going to be cleared this week given situation, per sources. Out Sunday vs. Arizona. Even next week uncertain. Been practicing w/non-contact jersey but a lot to be taken into consideration considering he suffered 2 concussions in four-week span (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants will likely roll with Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer as their top three wideouts in a good matchup against the Cardinals, even with Patrick Peterson back on the field. Tate figures to run the majority of his routes from the slot.


Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman both out for TNF
TE Evan Engram doubtful, more Giants reeling from injuries
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 8, 1:06 pm

New York Giants
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is unlikely to play Thursday night against the New England Patriots despite returning to practice late last week, multiple sources told ESPN. He had been eyeing this week's contest as a potential return date. There's also a real chance the Giants will be without tight end Evan Engram, who is dealing with a sprained MCL and faces a challenge to be healthy enough to face New England, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Engram is on pace for a career year with 33 catches for 373 yards and two touchdowns. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: So with Barkley unavailable Thursday and both Wayne Gallman and WR Sterling Shepard set to miss the game with concussions, the Giants are in dire straits. Undrafted rookie running back Jon Hilliman and fullback Elijhaa Penny, a converted tailback, are the next men up, and WR Golden Tate should see plenty fo targets operating out of the slot.


Injury Sterling Shepard suffers another concussion
Second one of the season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 7, 5:20 pm

New York Giants
Giants receiver Sterling Shepard has another concussion, and will likely be out a while, according to a source. (SNY - Ralph Vacchiano)

FFToday's Take: It means he's a no-go for Thursday's clash with the Patriots, and there's no guarantee he'll be cleared in time to play against the Cardinals in Week 7. Golden Tate will slide into his slot-heavy role while Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer round out the three-receiver sets for the Giants in the meantime.


Melvin Gordon's role unclear
Only used in an emergency?
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 29, 7:15 am

Two notes on #Chargers RB Melvin Gordon: 1. The plan is for him to be active but only used in an emergency. 2. #Giants WR Golden Tate worked out with him and the word is Tate is “on a mission” as he nears a return. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Being used in "only in an emergency" doesn't sound like Gordon will be seeing a lot of touches, but earlier reports have suggested Gordon could play a complementary role to Austin Ekeler. It's hard to trust Gordon in fantasy lineups today as he could play behind Troymaine Pope.
