2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Golladay signed a lucrative 4-year, $72 million contract in the off-season, making him the 6th-highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. Dave Gettleman and the Giants front office were looking for a big-play receiver to be the number one WR for Daniel Jones, and they fulfilled that need with Golladay.

The NFL and fantasy community responded with mixed reviews at best, with many questioning whether or not Golladay was worth that type of money and if Jones would be able to take advantage of Golladay's skill set. There is also the concern with volume, as the Giants already have a deep receiving corps and a tight end that led the team in targets in 2020.

Will Golladay get the volume needed to be a WR1 for fantasy? The answer is no, but that should not keep you away from drafting him, as he has never been a volume guy. In his best season with Detroit, in which he finished as WR9, Golladay saw just 116 targets from a combination of Matthew Stafford (8 games), David Blough, and Jeff Driskel.

Say what you want about Daniel Jones, but it is hard to argue that he is an upgrade over Blough and Driskel. Another thing to consider is the fact that Golladay is one of the best deep receivers in the league and is skilled at contested catches. Jones is subpar in most metrics, but according to NFL Next Gen Stats, he was the best deep-ball passer in 2020.

While we don't anticipate Golladay turning into the 2021 version of Stefon Diggs, he is an excellent value as a low-end WR 2 or high-end WR3 as managers continue to doubt his move to New York.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard miss practice Friday
Quad injury for both
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 26, 12:51 pm

New York Giants
WRs Kadarius Toney (quad) and Sterling Shepard (quad) not out during open portion of practice. Wouldn’t expect them to play Sunday vs Eagles. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Shepard last played in Week 8 missing time with a quad injury. With Toney missing practice all week with the same injury it's looking like Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton as the top receivers for Daniel Jones against the Eagles. Given the poor offense, it's hard to trust Golladay as anything more than a Flex option.


Injury Sterling Shepard, Engram back at practice
Kadarius Toney, Kenny Golladay and RB Saquon Barkley work on the side
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Oct 28, 12:27 pm

New York Giants
WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday. So did TE Evan Engram. Not looking good for WR Kadarius Toney (ankle), WR Kenny Golladay (knee) and RB Saquon Barkley (ankle). Did work on the side with trainers. #giants #MNF (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants play Monday night so all of their injured players get an extra day to heal. We should have a better idea of who will play on Saturday but it sounds like it will be at least one more week for Golladay, Toney and Barkely. The Giants have a Bye in Week 10.


Injury Giants rule out Barkley, Golladay and Toney
Shepard, Engram, Slayton all listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 22, 1:39 pm

New York Giants
The #Giants ruled out 3 weapons with more questionable: - RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), WR Kenny Golladay (knee), WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) all out. - TE Evan Engram (calf), WR John Ross (hamstring), WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) all questionable. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Giants beat reporters believe that all of the Questionable players will play. Shepard will be a solid PPR WR2 against the Panthers. Evan Engram's best game of the season was a 4-55-0 line in Week 5 against Dallas.


Injury Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton practice on Wednesday
Should play in Week 6
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 13, 11:37 am

New York Giants
The good news: WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton practiced (below). I’m expecting them to play Sunday. Same for S Jabrill Peppers. All had hamstring injuries. LT Andrew Thomas (foot) and LG Matt Skura (leg?) were on the side during drills. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both Shepard and Slayton have missed the last two weeks with hamstring injuries. With Kenny Golladay (knee) likely out, expect Shepard, Slayton and rookie Kadarius Toney to be the starting wideouts against the Rams this week.


Injury Kenny Golladay likely to miss at least one game
Suffered knee injury in Week 5
By: Doug Orth | Tue Oct 12, 12:30 am

New York Giants
Giants WR Kenny Golladay is expected to miss this week with a knee injury, source said, but a major sigh of relief all around. The initial fear was that it was major… but should be just a week or two. Actual good injury luck for NYG. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: It's been a rough start to his time with the Giants. Before hyperextending his knee in Week 5, Golladay has dealt with hamstring and hip issues since August. It is also unclear if he will be the No. 1 receiver he was signed to be this offseason as Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney have each shown the ability to be a capable target hog. Consider him a WR4 until he proves he can stay healthy long enough to be upgraded.


Injury Barkley week-to-week with sprained ankle
Giants ravaged by injuries in Week 5
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 11, 9:01 am

New York Giants
The latest: Saquon Barkley - Ankle “sprain.” Likely couple weeks. More tests Monday. Kenny Golladay - Hyperextended knee. MRI Monday. Daniel Jones - Concussion. “In good spirits” after game. Flew home w/team. See how it goes this week. Tough dude. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants were ravaged by injuries in Week 5 that saw Barkley and Jones get carted off. Devontae Booker filled in for Barkley and would be the presumed starter at running back next week against the Rams. He'll be a hot pickup on the waiver wire. Rookie Kadarius Toney saw 15 targets as he became the focal point of the passing game once Golladay left.


Injury Sterling Shephard, Darius Slayton out for Week 5
Hamstring injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 8, 2:41 pm

New York Giants
WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. G Ben Bredeson and S Jabrill Peppers are out Sunday against the #Cowboys. Starting LT Andrew Thomas (foot) is questionable. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Once again, the Giants will roll with Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney and John Ross as their starting wide receivers. Golladay was very efficient with his 7 targets last week, catching six for 116 yards. Toney (6-78) projects to work more out of the slot against the Cowboys defense.
