Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Darius Slayton Note

Slayton had a monstrous Week 1 against the Steelers with two touchdown passes, and looked to have a great rapport with Daniel Jones. Golden Tate was out for the game, and there are plenty of mouths to feed for the Giants, but Slayton immediately moves into close to WR3 range, and another big performance would firmly plant him an every-week starter.

Devonta Freeman Note

Freeman signed a $3 million deal with the Giants after Saquon Barkley was lost for the season. He'll likely split time with both Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman, but he reportedly turned down more lucrative offers elsewhere for the chance at playing time. Add Freeman, but it's not the best situation given the offensive line, so don't expect to have a rock solid RB2 on your hands.

Evan Engram Note

Engram is extremely talented, has one of the best rookie tight end seasons on his ledger, and is jut 25 years old. But despite all that, there are several strikes against him from a fantasy perspective. Not only has he missed 13 games the last two seasons, but he's also going to be sharing targets with Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton. He's a starting tight end for any fantasy team, but his star doesn't burn quite as bright this draft season as in previous years.

Sterling Shepard Note

Shepard is dealing with turf toe, and has been placed on IR. He wasn't all that involved in the offense when he did play in his short time this year, as Darius Slayton took a bigger role. Shepard is droppable in nearly all formats.

Golden Tate Note

Tate missed four games last year after his suspension but he had a very solid year when he was on the field. He finished the season ranked 31st among wide receiver in fantasy points per game (half-PPR formats) and continued to excel in producing yards after the catch. Tate will be 32 years old when the season starts and will continue to compete for targets with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley. But in full PPR formats at least, he should be a viable flex option most weeks. In standard or half-PPR leagues, however, draft him only as a bench player.
