His target totals are a thing that'll make you go crazy, as they've gone 4, 4, 9, 1, 7 over the last five weeks. He's certainly the more volatile between him and Shepard, but he's also the one with more upside, as he's finished with 93 yards and/or a touchdown in three games this year, while Shepard has finished every game with 29-74 yards and has scored just once. There have been 11 wide receivers who've finished as a top-30 wide receiver against the Bengals, though all of them saw at least six targets, a number that's hardly guaranteed with Slayton. The good news is that the Bengals have allowed 39 pass plays that have gone for 20-plus yards, which is the third-most in the NFL behind only the Falcons and Seahawks. Slayton has 11 deep targets, while no other receiver on the Giants has more than three of them. There's certainly splash-play potential here with him, making him a risk/reward high-end WR4 option.

Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught five of his seven targets for 93 yards in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Slayton bounced back after a one-reception performance against Washington last week, but he has just one touchdown and 482 yards receiving over his last nine games. The Giants have a bye in Week 11 and then face off against the Bengals in Cincinnati in Week 12.
