Fantasy Impact: Freeman signed with the Giants following Saquon Barkley's torn ACL. The 28-year-old wound up playing in just five games, averaging 3.2 yards per carry and scoring one touchdown. It might be tough for him to remain in the NFL next year.

Giants kicker Graham Gano made a long field goal attempt on Sunday but missed one of his three extra point tries in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Gano had an excellent first season with the Giants and only missed one field goal attempt all year, way back in Week 2. He finishes the season 31-for-32 on field goal attempts and 21-for-23 on extra point tries.

The New York Giants D/ST held the Dallas Cowboys to 19 points on 307 total yards while recording six sacks and intercepting one pass in Sunday's win.

Fantasy Impact: The New York Giants D/ST was much improved behind new defensive coordinator Patrick Graham in 2020, and they very nearly carried the Giants to the playoffs after a slow start to the year.

Giants wide receiver Dante Pettis caught both of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Pettis was claimed by the Giants in late November but didn't make his Giants debut until Week 16. In two games for New York, he caught four of his five targets for 76 yards and a touchdown.

Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught two of his four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: After an impressive rookie season that saw him catch 48 passes for 740 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games, Slayton failed to take the next step in 2020, cashing 50 passes for 751 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. The Giants will look to add competition at the wide receiver position this offseason.

Giants tight end Evan Engram caught two of his four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Engram was voted to the Pro Bowl this season but had a rather pedestrian year overall. In 16 games, the young tight end caught 63 of his 654 targets for 654 yards and one touchdown.

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught eight of his 10 targets for 112 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for 24 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Sterling had a modest year overall and dealt with injuries, but he finished the year strong. He finishes the season with 66 receptions for 656 yards and three touchdowns while rushing six times for 49 yards and a touchdown.

Giants running back Wayne Gallman rushed 11 times for 65 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Gallman emerged as a viable NFL running back in 2020 thanks to the injuries to Saquon Barkley and Devonta Freeman. He finishes the year with 147 rushing attempts for 682 yards and six touchdowns while catching 21 passes for 114 yards.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 17 of his 25 pass attempts for 229 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception while rushing nine times for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had an up-and-down season for the Giants and dealt with a hamstring injury late in the year, but he reduced his turnovers late in the season and rushed for over 400 yards. He'll likely enter the 2021 season as the presumed starter for the Giants but could have at least some mild competition in training camp.

Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is officially inactive for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys after being listed as doubtful with a calf injury. (Source: Patricia Traina on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tate will now miss the team's final two games due to a calf injury. In 12 games this season, Tate has caught 35 passes for 388 yards and two touchdowns.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Giants and CB Logan Ryan have agreed to a three-year, $31 million extension. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The deal includes $20 million guaranteed. Ryan signed a one-year deal with the Giants over the offseason and has been a big part of their defensive rival under new coach Joe Judge.

The Giants activated CB James Bradberry from the reserve/COVID-19 list. (Source: Around The NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bradberry was a high-risk, close-contact of someone that wasn't tied to the Giants' facility. He has been one of the best corners in football this year and his return is a big one for the Giants' defense entering Week 16.

Giants quarterback Colt McCoy completed 19 of his 31 pass attempts for 221 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact: McCoy didn't produce much of anything for fantasy managers who were desperate enough to start him on Sunday. Daniel Jones is expected to return for a Week 16 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, with McCoy returning to the bench.

Giants running back Dion Lewis rushed two times for 14 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: The touchdown was Lewis's second of the season and his first since Week 2, which was the also the last time he logged more than three carries in a game. He cultured a short touchdown on Sunday but is not a viable option in any fantasy format unless there are multiple injuries to Giants running backs.

Giants running back Alfred Morris rushed three times for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Morris scored two touchdowns in last week's win over the Seahawks but managed just three carries for minimal yardage in the team's Week 14 loss.

Giants' WR Austin Mack caught one pass for nine yards in Week 10's win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Daniel Jones spread the ball out on Sunday, completing passes to eight different receivers. Mack has 6 receptions this season, and with the Giants' WR core finally healthy, he isn't a reliable fantasy option at this time.

Category: Game Recaps


Giants' TE Kaden Smith hauled in two receptions for 12 yards in Week 10's win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Smith showed some potential at the end of 2019 with Evan Engram injured but hasn't really been incorporated into the offense this season. His value is strictly injury-based at this time.

New York Giants cornerback Ryan Lewis is inactive for Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a hamstring injury. (Source: Pat Leonard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Lewis has been the starter since Week 4, so this is a blow to an already suspect cornerback group behind top corner James Bradberry. Lewis has not been much of an IDP option, but his absence should make life much easier for Scott Miller. Miller gets a slight upside boost with Lewis being officially deemed inactive.

New York Giants safety Adrian Colbert is inactive for Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Source: Pat Leonard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Colbert was an early rule out despite participating in limited practices all week. He should be ready to play Washington in Week 9. Colbert has played starters snaps when healthy, unfortunately, he has been active for just three games this season. He is worth a speculative add as a bye week filler for those in need of safety help.

RB Saquon Barkley “finally” underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL in his right knee. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Barkley underwent surgery Friday in Los Angeles to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. “Surgery was a success," Barkley's mother, Tonya Johnson, wrote in an Instagram post. His surgery took place 40 days after suffering a torn ACL on Week 2’s loss to the Bears. He had to wait for Dr. Neal ElAtrrache’s busy schedule, the surgeon and team physician of the LA Dodgers. The Giants star RB is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the start of next season. Barkley will be intriguing fantasy pick next year in re-draft leagues. Barring a setback in his recovery, he is expected to be selected within the first two rounds of 2021 fantasy drafts.
