Player Notes
Dec 6 12:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is off the fantasy radar with Eli Manning back under center and Evan Engram (foot) and Golden Tate (concussion) back on the field. Slayton will now be the 4th option in the passing game (perhaps 5th behind Saquon Barkley) with a quarterback who hasn't played many games with him and isn't as prone to taking deep shots down the field. It all makes Slayton way too risky for fantasy lineups.

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton finds himself squarely back on the fantasy radar in 12+ team leagues with Golden Tate (concussion) set to miss this weekend's game. Slayton will operate as the primary boundary receiver, a role that has enabled him to flourish as Daniel Jones' deep ball target. The Packers have been limiting touchdowns to receivers, only three in the last six games, so Slayton may not find the end zone, but the Giants figure to throw often, which gives Slayton a good chance to hit a big play or two and rip off chunks of yardage. His lack of touchdown upside makes him more of a low-end WR3 but an intriguing DFS tournament option.

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton remained a large part of the Giants offense even with Sterling Shepard (concussion) back. Slayton was tied for second on the team with seven targets, catching four of them for 67 yards. The eventual return of Evan Engram will likely take another chunk out of Slayton's targets, but the rookie has remained a favorite target of Daniel Jones. He's still more of a deep-league option since he will likely only see around five targets a game, but it seems as though he'll remain a part of the gameplan. If Engram comes back next week, Slayton should be a WR4.

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton finds himself in a tough spot on Sunday, even with injuries to Evan Engram (foot) and Sterling Shepard (concussion). The rookie wide receiver has been a revelation as Daniel Jones' deep-ball option, but the Bears are the fourth-best defense in the NFL against the pass and have only given up four touchdowns all season. More problematically, the average yards per target against the Bears is only 7.36 yards, which is fourth-fewest in the league. With a strong secondary and a fierce pass rush, quarterbacks get the ball out quickly on underneath routes, which are not the type Slayton runs. He's more of a WR4 and wouldn't be playable if Shepard returns to action.

Nov 10 9:00pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton erupted for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 10 catches in Sunday's loss to the Jets. With Evan Engram (foot) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) sidelined, the rookie took advantage and led the charge for the Giants. Slayton has been winning on the deep ball this year, but he made solid catches over the middle and on intermediate routes as well, hinting at his potential as he grows comfortable with the NFL game. Obviously, expectations should be tempered a bit. The Jets secondary is not formidable and the Giants receivers figure to be healthy coming out of the bye week, which will cut into Slayton's opportunities. Buy him in dynasty leagues and feel free to stash him in 12-team leagues or larger, but I would recommend trying to sell high in those redraft formats.

From RotoBaller

Nov 7 1:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton is in a good spot on Sunday with both Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (foot) expected to miss the game versus the Jets. The Jets gave up 38 points to Jacksonville wide receivers in Week 8 and 36 points to the Dolphins' receivers in Week 9. They also just put starting cornerback Trumaine Johnson on the IR. Slayton will still likely trail Saquon Barkley and Golden Tate in targets, but he's been a viable big-play threat, which makes him a usable WR4 and decent GPP option in DFS.

Nov 4 11:50pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton let down fantasy owners on Monday with only one catch for six yards. With Sterling Shepard(concussion) out, it was assumed that Slayton would operate as the teams deep threat. The only problem is that the Giants refused to challenge the Cowboys deep. If Shepard continues to miss time, Slayton could have value in deep PPR leagues, but hell need the Giants offense to be way more aggressive.

From RotoBaller

Oct 30 6:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton becomes a less attractive option this week with Sterling Shepard likely returning from a concussion. The Cowboys allow the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, and Slayton will now be competing with Shepard, Evan Engram, Saquon Barkley, and Golden Tate for touches. It's not a recipe for success in season-long leagues; however, his big-play ability makes him an interesting dart throw for anybody playing DFS on Monday night.

From RotoBaller

Oct 27 11:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton has become the ultimate big-play option with Daniel Jones under center after the rookie wide receiver caught two passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday against the Lions. However, being a deep-play threat on the Giants hasn't led to consistent success, and Sterling Shepard (concussion) is coming back next week, which should cut into his targets as an outside receiver. Slayton has shown enough as a deep threat that he might still be playable as a DFS option in the right matchup, but in season-long leagues, you should look to trade him now unless youre in a really deep league.

From RotoBaller

Oct 23 7:50pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton gets a reprieve on Sunday after facing the elite coverage of Patrick Peterson last week. With Sterling Shepard (concussion) out one more week, Slayton will remain the main deep threat on the outside for Daniel Jones. He'll also be going up against a secondary without its top corner in Darius Slay and safety in Quandre Diggs, who was just traded to Seattle. The rookie wide receiver is a boom or bust WR4 in season-long leagues, but he makes for an intriguing dart throw in DFS.

From RotoBaller

Oct 16 7:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton will likely continue to see starter's snaps with Sterling Shepard probably out on Sunday. Last week Slayton saw the 7th most air yards of any wide receiver in the NFL, so he has become a deep threat for Daniel Jones. This would normally be a great spot to play Slayton in deep leagues or in DFS, but with Patrick Peterson back for the Cardinals, Slayton may find himself in his coverage more often than fantasy owners want. He's still a decent dart throw in deep leagues, but he's riskier than some might think.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 11:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton was second on the Giants in targets despite Cody Latimer being announced as the starter opposite Golden Tate. Latimer only saw one target, but Slayton also couldn't do much against the Patriots' tough defense. The rookie collected three catches for 32 yards on his eight targets. Slayton is a nice piece for the Giants future, but he wont be usable once the offense gets fully healthy. Latimer can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 9 2:10pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton will be one of the team's two starting outside receivers with Sterling Shepard missing Thursday's game due to a concussion. Although few of the Giants passing options outside of slot receiver Golden Tate are fantasy viable against the Patriots, Slayton has been a favorite of Daniel Jones' on deep routes. With the Giants figuring to be down and throwing often, there's a chance they could hook-up for one deep pass. He's not a recommended play, but if you're looking for a dart throw in deep leagues, he has that one-play ability.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 5:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton led the team in receiving with 62 yards and one TD on four catches. He made a nice catch on a deep pass from Daniel Jones to haul in the touchdown and showed solid hands on another sideline grab. Slayton clearly has talent and can be added to the bench in deep leagues, but he is the fourth option in a passing game led by an inconsistent rookie quarterback, so he's not somebody that you should be running out to add. He likely won't be a factor next week against the Patriots.

From RotoBaller

Oct 2 11:30am ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton has likely seen his fantasy usefulness dry up. With Golden Tate and Cody Latimer returning, Slayton is now fourth on the wide receiver depth chart in New York. While he does offer a deep-threat element, he's simply not going to see enough targets to warrant being played in any league, especially against the Vikings stout defense.

From RotoBaller

Sep 25 11:40am ET

New York Giants rookie wide receiver is an attractive sleeper option on Sunday against the Redskins. In his first game since suffering a hamstring injury, Slayton was third on the Giants with five targets last week, catching three of them for 82 yards. As Daniel Jones' preferred deep threat, Slayton could make for a great deep league or DFS play against one of the league's worst secondaries. The Giants' own poor defense will likely keep this a close game, so Daniel Jones will have to keep throwing, and it will only take one deep ball to Slayton for him to be a worthwhile play.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 7:50pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton looked good in his first NFL game. After missing the first two weeks with a hamstring injury, Slayton immediately slotted in as the Giants deep threat with Cody Latimer (concussion) out. Daniel Jones looked his way for a few big plays, and it looks like Slayton has a real chance to carve out value in a now pass-heavy attack. That would make him an interesting WR5 in deep leagues or DFS dart throw. You can leave him on the wire in 12-team leagues, but he might be worth a shot in deeper ones.

From RotoBaller

Sep 3 4:40pm ET

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring) remains out of practice on Tuesday. Slayton has been injured for most of training camp and is unlikely to be active in Week 1 against the Cowboys. He'll also be behind the eight ball in terms of his development early in his rookie year, so don't expect him to have much of an impact early on while being buried on the depth chart behind Sterling Shepard, Bennie Fowler and Cody Latimer. Slayton hasn't been able to take advantage with Golden Tate suspended for the first four games of the season.

From RotoBaller

Aug 26 3:50pm ET

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring for the second time in training camp. It's unknown if Slayton will be ready for Week 1 now, but even if he is, he's not a redraft option to begin the year, even with Golden Tate suspended for the first four games. It's expected to be Sterling Shepard, Bennie Fowler and Cody Latimer manning three-wide sets to begin the season for the G-Men with Tate out. Even Russell Shepard is likely ahead of Slayton at this point.

From RotoBaller

Jun 29 11:50pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton reportedly had a rough minicamp, but he rebounded during organized team activities (OTAs), and is back on track in the hunt for the No. 3 receiver job heading into training camp and the preseason. He was clocked with a 4.39 time in the 40-yard dash, and he gives the G-Men a speed burner on the outside to help make up for the loss of Odell Beckham Jr., at least somewhat. He has plenty of competition behind projected starters Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate, as Corey Coleman, Bennie Fowler and Cody Latimer jockey for the third job. Slayton could be a nice fantasy sleeper if he is able to secure the gig.
