WR - NYG
Did you know there wasn't a single game in 2019 where Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley were on the field together? That's an issue for Slayton's projection in 2020, as he's clearly the fourth or fifth option in the pass-attack. Add in the inconsistency of Daniel Jones, and you have yourself a very high-risk wide receiver who's being taken over some valuable commodities.
Darius Slayton had a strong debut season but his fantasy stock was overly boosted by his suprising 8 TDs. Massive regression is coming in an offence that now boasts a healthy Barkley, Engram, Tate and Shepard, something that was never true last season. He's a strong upside pick if everything goes right but not my preferred choice of target.
Drafting Slayton in 2020 is a bit of a gamble. He was terrific last season, but the rest of the receiving options on the Giants were never fully healthy all at the same time. The Giants are still going to air the ball out a ton this season, but Slayton's going to have to see one or two other receivers miss significant time for him to see the target totals necessary.
With Daniel Jones at QB and Evan Engram playing, Darius Slayton averaged just 3.83 targets per game and never eclipsed a 13.8% target share in a single game. @ConnorAllenNFL
I think he's less likely to take a value hit if targets get squeezed versus some of his slot friends..
The next Steve Smith. Trade for him now.
