2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
An off-and-on rookie season makes Kadarius Toney one of the more interesting fantasy players in New York as we head into the 2022 season. He had a couple of "breakout" games, but immediately suffered injuries that caused him to miss time and really deflated his hype.

Now heading into his second season, Toney is in the driver's seat to start opposite Kenny Golladay in two-WR sets. Slot receiver Sterling Shepard is expected to be back at some point and the Giants spent a second-round pick on Wan'Dale Robinson who also projects to play primarily out of the slot which will mean an interesting change in situation for Toney. He was looked at as primarily a slot receiver himself when he came out of college and played most of his snaps in the slot as a rookie.

While his average depth of target was one of the lowest in the league, Toney consistently made Deebo Samuel-esque post-catch moves to finish in the top-10 in the league in yards after catch per reception in 2021. The Giants can definitely draw up some ways for him to get the ball in his hands close to the line of scrimmage even if he's not playing out of the slot, but he's likely going to need to progress as a route separator on the outside if he's going to take the next step toward becoming more than just a gadget player at the NFL level.

There are plenty of concerns about Toney when it comes to his ability to perform as a more traditional NFL wide receiver, but the Giants spent a first-round pick on him in 2021 and they're going to give him every opportunity to prove that he deserved that draft spot. As such, if there's any receiver on this roster who's most likely to break out and become a WR1 for fantasy this season, it has to be Toney. The chances are still slim given the expected output from the Giants as a whole, but it's not impossible that Toney make some real splashes for fantasy in 2022.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Mecole Hardman lands on IR, out four games
Abdomen injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 17, 4:54 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs have placed Mecole Hardman on injured reserve. Has to miss at least the next 4 games. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hardman missed Week 10 with an abdomen injury and now is listed with an illness. His absence should open up more opportunities for Kadarius Toney especially with JuJu Smith-Schuster likely to miss due to a concussion sustained in Week 10. After playing 73% of the snaps last week, Justin Watson should continue to see significant action as well.

Injury Mecole Hardman Out, Jerick McKinnon Questionable
Hardman missed practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 11, 3:16 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The final injury report of the week is now out and the Chiefs have listed Mecole Hardman as out for Sunday's game against Jaguars. Jerick McKinnon is questionable with shoulder and knee injuries. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Harman missed practice all week with an abdomen injury while McKinnon was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring issue. If McKinnon gets ruled out Sunday, running back snaps will be split between Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Isiah Pacheco. Expect Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore to pickup the slack for Hardman but neither are going to be trustworthy in your lineup.

Giants trade Kadarius Toney to Chiefs
Giants receive third-round compensatory pick, sixth-round pick
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 27, 12:33 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The #Giants are trading WR Kadarius Toney to the #Chiefs for a third-round compensatory pick and 2023 sixth-round pick, as @Schultz_Report said. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Toney's been a bit of conundrum in his early career, showing flashes of being a difference maker on the field mixed with injury and off-field issues. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman will be a free agents at the end of the season. It sounds like Toney had worn out his welcome in New York and a fresh start was needed for both sides.

Injury Daniel Jones expected to play in Week 5
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 7, 10:56 am

New York Giants
#Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) received no game status and he'll play on Sunday vs. the #Packers. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Daniel Jones left last week's game with an ankle injury but with backup Tyrod Taylor out with a concussion, Jones will make the start for the Giants in London. However, the Giants have nobody to throw to outside of Saquon Barkley. Kenny Golladay (knee), Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and Kadarius Toney (hamstrings) are all out for this game.

Injury Sterling Shepard out for the season, ACL injury
Giants wide receiver room is a mess
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 27, 12:09 pm

New York Giants
Giants’ HC Brian Daboll told reporters that WR Sterling Shepard did in fact tear his ACL. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants wide receiver situation is a mess and a situation to avoid for fantasy owners. Snap shares from Week 3 include Richie James (74%), David Sills (63%), Kenny Golladay (33%) and Darius Slayton (19%). It's difficult to tell what the usage will be now that Shepard is out for the season. Expect to see Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) in the near future.
