2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Slayton enters 2021 as the likely starting outside receiver for the Giants opposite Kenny Golladay, with Sterling Shepard in the slot and Evan Ingram as tight end. Slaton should see a ton of single coverage and the No.2 or No.3 cornerback from opposing defenses, which could lead to some big plays and sporadic monster games.

Yet as the No.3 or No.4 option based on volume in a poor passing game, it is hard to envision him being anything more than a best-ball play and someone who you can use if Golladay or Engram get hurt.

Another knock on the value of Slayton and Shepard is the addition of first-round WR Kadarius Toney, who will be used in a multitude of ways, and will eat into the upside of both players.

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, DeVante Parker Out for Week 7
Evan Engram, Julio Jones active
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 24, 11:33 am

Miami Dolphins
Actives/Inactives: - #Packers' Preston Smith and Kevin King are out. - #Jets LB CJ Mosley is out. - #Giants WR Sterling Shepard is out, TE Evan Engram is up. - #Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower is out. - WFT CB Will Jackson is out. - Julio Jones is up, MIA’s DeVante Parker is out. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Shepard out, the Giants will be relying on Darius Slayton, John Ross and Engram in the passing game. The Dolphins will feature Jaylen Waddle, Preston Williams and tight end Mike Gesicki against the Falcons.


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 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.


Injury Kadarius Toney could be in the slot for Week 4
Giants rookie set for expanded role with team's WR injury woes
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 28, 9:20 am

New York Giants
The Giants saw two of their top wide receivers, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard, suffer hamstring injuries in Week 3, opening the door for more snaps from disgruntled rookie WR Kadarius Toney. Shepard primarily plays in the slot, so if he can’t play this Sunday in New Orleans, Toney might wind up stepping in. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Giants drafted Toney 20th overall this year, and he’s had a limited role so far -- so it won’t be an easy spot for him to break out. He played five and 19 snaps in the first two games, and then got 46 last week (66% of the action), as Shepard and Slayton both got hurt in the first half. Still, Toney had just three targets and hauled in 2-16-0s. For the season, he has five targets and 4-14-0 receiving, but might be worth a look as a deep league add or DFS punt play.
