NFC East

Tavarres King hauled in two of his four targets for 36 yards against the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

Fantasy Impact: King was one of the most productive offense players for the Giants on Thursday, which should tell you all you need to know about how the game went. He's not a fantasy option in nearly any league.

Roger Lewis caught just three of his seven targets for 26 yards against the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

Fantasy Impact: It was a disastrous showing for the Giants offense, and Lewis was unable to take advantage of Sterling Shepard's absence. He's a low-end WR4 or 5 going forward.

Rhett Ellison caught one pass for nine yards in a 20-10 loss to the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Rhett Ellison on the season has 10 catches for 87 yards and one touchdown. He won't have much of a fantasy impact as he isn't used much in the passing game.

Evan Engram caught three passes for 18 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Evan Engram on the season has 44 catches for 470 yards and five touchdowns. After tallying just nine-yards on one reception in Week 11, Engram failed to bounce back Thursday. Most concerning was that he suffered a few drops on catchable balls. The talented rookie may be suffering from a lack of weapons on offense, as opposing defenses are able to focus more on him. He will look to turn things around next week against the Raiders.

Eli Manning completed 13 out of 27 passes for 113 yards with one interception. He was also sacked four times, ran for negative one yards, and fumbled once in a 20-10 loss to the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Eli Manning on the season has 2,411 yards passing with 14 passing touchdowns. The Giants struggled offensively the whole evening. Their only touchdown came off an interception in the third-quarter. Manning did not get much help from his receivers, as there were several drops on the evening. He will look to bounce back when the Giants face the Raiders in Week 13.

Orleans Darkwa had a tough time getting anything going carrying the ball during the Giants' 20-10 Thanksgiving loss to Washington. Darkwa only gained 30 yards on 11 carries, a 2.7 YPC average, and had one catch for 9 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Darkwa was limited on the ground against a Washington defense that geared up to shut down the run. Although the Giants' leading rusher and sparkplug of the offense seemed stuck in neutral for most of the evening, he's still a solid flex option in the right matchup.

Shane Vereen managed just four touches during the Giants' 20-10 loss against Washington on Thanksgiving. Vereen carried the ball three times for 18 yards and had one reception for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Vereen continues to have very little impact in the Giants' dreadful offense. As a run-focused team, New York has taken to using more effective between the tackles runners in Darkwa and Gallman over a receiving back like Vereen.

Category: Game Recaps


Wayne Gallman was second on the team in carries but first in rushing yardage on Thanskgiving night. The rookie ran the ball nine times for 37 yards and added two receptions for six yards.

Fantasy Impact: Gallman is clearly second in the pecking order behind Orleans Darkwa and ahead of Shane Vereen. However, there just isn't enough fantasy value to hold on to Gallman as the number two back on a struggling offensive unit.

The New York Giants D/ST had a strong outing against the Washington Redskins, producing 15 fantasy points. The Giants' held Washington to just 20 points and managed to get to Kirk Cousins six times and score on an interception.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants' defense played advantageous football against a Washington offensive line that was hemorrhaging starters. Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul combined for 3.5 sacks by themselves as the entire defense totaled six. Janoris Jenkins also corralled a tipped pass and took it back 53 yards to the house. If the Giants' defense continues to play with this much intensity, they could get back to being worthy of owning.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Shepard is out for the Thanksgiving Day night cap against the Redskins with lingering migraine symptoms. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King will handle the bulk of the wide receiver work for the Giants in Week 12.

Jerell Adams caught one pass for six yards in a 12-9 win over the Chiefs in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Jerell Adams on the season has four catches for 61 yards. He won't be much of a fantasy impact, but could see targets with the Giants thin at wide out.

Category: Game Recaps


Aldrick Rosas hit two field goals (on three attempts) in the Giants' pitiful 31-21 loss to the 49ers in Week 10. Rosas added one extra point on his day.

Fantasy Impact: Rosas has a strong leg, but is typically good for at least one miss a week. Given the Giants' FG opportunities are few and far between due to offensive ineptitude, Rosas is best left on the waiver wire in all formats.

Category: Game Recaps


Paul Perkins played in his first game since going out to a rib injury in Week 4 but was only seen on special teams. Perkins did not have a carry or reception.

Fantasy Impact: Perkins has clearly fallen out of favor in the Giants' runningback rotation. The only way for him to be of any fantasy relevance would be if one or two injuries befell the runners ahead of him on the depth chart.

Geno Smith completed zero out of two passes and rushed for negative one yards in a 51-17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Geno Smith won't have a fantasy impact unless he starts over Eli Manning next week.

Category: Game Recaps


Travis Rudolph hauled in 32-yards on three receptions (targeted six times) in the Giants' sleep-inducing 24-7 loss to Seattle in Week 7. Rudolph, sadly, led Giants' WRs with this 32-yard output.

Fantasy Impact: Lets face it folks, this offense is an absolute disaster of epic proportions. While some will say it is due to Odell Beckham's and Brandon Marshall's season-ending injuries (combined with Sterling Shepard's current injury), this offense was a disaster before any of them were hurt. It's a lost season for the Giants in 2017. Owners should look to Shepard and Evan Engram as the lone fantasy contributors from the Giants for the remainder of the 2017 season. Mercifully, the Giants are bye in Week 8, so we won't be subjected to having to witness this zombie-like offense until November 5th at the hands of the LA Rams, at which time fans will be treated to a plethora of 3rd and long 2-yard screen passes and inside handoffs that go for negative yardage.

Fantasy Impact: Marshall, whose 2017 season came to an early end this week after undergoing ankle surgery, is expected to return to the team in 2018. The 33-year-old wideout compiled a dismal 18-154-0 stat line through five games in 2017.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants have now lost their two starting wide receivers for the rest of the season from ankle injuries. Sterling Shepard, who is banged up himself, Evan Engram and Roger Lewis will see their fantasy values boosted.

NFL Network's Kim Jones is reporting New York Giants DB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is officially active for Week 3. (Source: Kim Jones on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Jenkins active, he'll likely blanket Eagles wideout Alshon Jeffery for most of the day. However, since he is coming off an ankle injury, he may not be 100 percent, which works in Jeffery's favor. Sill, I'd temper expectations for Jeffery in this one. He is a risky mid-tier WR2, who could be TD-dependent, for Week 3.

Will Tye claimed by Jets

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the New York Jets have claimed Will Tye off waivers from the New York Giants. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tye was claimed by the Jets to add depth to a questionable tight end depth chart until Austin Seferian-Jenkins returns from his suspension in Week 3. However, since Seferian-Jenkins has never played more than nine games in a season, Tye could wind up seeing a significant role on his new club at different points in the year. From a fantasy perspective, however, he has minimal value and should remain on the waiver wire.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Indianapolis Colts and free agent defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins have agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth "up to" $30 million that includes $15.9 million in guaranteed money. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hankins, formerly of the Giants and the highest graded free agent still available, signed with the Colts on Thursday. While playing in all 16 games for only the second time in his career in 2016, Hankins accumulated 44 total tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. He'll improve a Colts run defense that finished 25th in the NFL last season.
