Daniel Bellinger caught one pass for five yards in New York's 23-21 preseason win over the New England Patriots.
Bellinger played nearly half of the Giants' offensive snaps on Thursday but failed to make much of an impact. Coming into an offensive scheme that was developed by former Bills' offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and former Chiefs' offensive assistant Mike Kafka, Bellinger could see the ball come his way a fair share of times as the preseason and regular season progress. With his size, blocking ability, and athleticism, the San Diego State product will find himself on the field and has the potential to be a solid contributor for the Giants in 2022.
Daniel Bellinger has officially passed his physical and has been activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list on Wednesday morning as reported by Dan Salomone of Giants.com.
The Giants invested a fourth-round pick in Bellinger as part of their complete offseason overhaul at the tight end position. Now that he is activated, Bellinger should slot into the starting role, and take the same first-team reps as he did in minicamp, as part of a potential three-headed tight end monster in New York of Bellinger, Ricky Seals-Jones, and Jordan Akins. If Bellinger builds on his strong first impression from minicamp and continues to develop chemistry with Daniel Jones, the sky is the limit for the rookie. The 21-year-old remains a sleeper candidate at the perennially shallow tight end position after catching 31 balls for 357 yards and two touchdowns last season at San Diego State. Keep an eye on the rookie as the Giants head into the preseason and beyond.
The Giants have placed fourth-round pick Daniel Bellinger on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a quadricep injury according to Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson.
Bellinger is part of the Giants’ overhaul at the tight end position, having signed free agents Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins as well, after losing veterans Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph in the offseason. The rookie had 31 catches for 357 yards and two touchdowns last season for San Diego State. Bellinger arrived on Tuesday with all other rookies and can be activated at any point during camp. Bellinger took first team reps, “caught the ball well” in minicamp and “made a strong first impression” so once he is cleared to practice, he should be the man to beat for the starting tight end spot in New York. The rookie could be a sleeper candidate at a shallow fantasy position if he can develop a rapport with Daniel Jones and become his go-to tight end.
New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger has taken first-team reps and "caught the ball well" during minicamp, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN. The rookie has "made a strong first impression" and is in the running to win the starting tight end job in 2022.
The Giants drafted Bellinger in the fourth round after losing Evan Engram in free agency. Bellinger's biggest obstacles this offseason are a pair of veterans, Ricky Seals-Jones and Jordan Akins. If the Giants are looking for youth at the position, Bellinger is the way to go. The San Diego State product will have some deeper fantasy relevance in 2022 due to volume and talent.
Giants fourth-round rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger is expected to become an instant contributor on the offense.
Bellinger, who the Giants took in the fourth round, will be expected to see playing time with the lack of depth New York has. He didn't put up big time numbers at San Diego State, but he has shown flashes of potential in both blocking and receiving. For fantasy purposes, he will stay worthless in redraft leagues, but he is an interesting bench stash in dynasty leagues.
