| Daniel Jones in walking boot with ankle sprain|
Eli Manning likely to start Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 4, 10:53 am
|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.
| Tate, Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 13|
Giants short-handed against the Packers
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 12:01 pm
|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.
| Tate, Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday|
Tate suffered a concussion in Week 12

|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.
| 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
|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.
| Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday|
Unlikely Engram plays in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 20, 11:08 am
|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.
| Evan Engram expected to miss Week 10|
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 6, 2:31 pm
|Tight end Evan Engram expects to miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets with what the New York Giants are calling a "mid-foot sprain." Engram had his MRI results of the affected left foot sent to specialist Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. But Engram said later Wednesday that there is a belief he "dodged a bullet" and it's not the dreaded Lisfranc sprain that would sideline him for an extended period of time. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Engram will miss this week, then the Giants have a bye in Week 11. Hopefully, he'll be able to return in Week 12 against the Bears. Rhett Ellison should see an increase target share but he'll be a fantasy dart throw with a low floor.
| Sterling Shepard not expected to play Week 8|
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 24, 1:08 pm
|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.
| Plethora of Giants on the mend|
Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram "have a chance" to play in Week 7
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 14, 5:05 pm
|RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), RB Wayne Gallman (concussion), TE Evan Engram (knee) and WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) all took part in individual drills during the Giants' light practice today.
Shepard is still a longshot to play Sunday. Barkley and Engram have a chance to play. (SNY - Ralph Vacchiano)|
FFToday's Take: Barkley will end up missing a total of three games with a high-ankle sprain if he returns in Week 7, and the release of Jon Hilliman after the Week 6 TNF game was an indication the team believes he will be ready for the Cardinals. Engram would be primed for a huge blowup spot against the league's worst defense against tight ends if he can go. As for Shepard, it seems reasonable he could be held out another week after suffering his second concussion of the season in Week 5.
|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 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.
| Sterling Shepard ruled out for Week 2|
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 13, 12:40 pm
|#NYGiants game statuses for Sunday:
Out: WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring), TE Garrett Dickerson (quad)
Questionable: WR Cody Latimer (calf) (Giants on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Shephard out and Latimer questionable it's going to be the Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram show against the Bills. Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and perhaps T.J. Jones will be change ups on the outside but expect the Giants to lean their running back and tight end in Week 2.
