Player Outlook
Slayton stayed with the Giants this year after signing a two-year contract extension in March. He should remain a starter, but that doesn't mean he's a Fantasy starter. Slayton is only worth drafting with a late-round pick in most Fantasy leagues. The Giants have a lot of weapons in the passing game with Slayton, Darren Waller, Isaiah Hodgins, Wan'Dale Robinson, Sterling Shepard, Jalin Hyatt and Parris Campbell. Aside from Waller, none of the receivers have proven to be dominant, but Slayton should have plenty of positive moments during the season. While he only averaged 8.0 PPR points per game in 2022, he did have seven games with at least 11.0 PPR points. He also had eight games with six-plus targets, so don't be surprised if Slayton becomes a popular waiver-wire option during the season if he gets on a hot streak.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Undergoes thumb surgery

    Slayton said Thursday that he had surgery on his right thumb after the conclusion of the regular season but should be ready to play "by the time it matters," Tom Rock of Newsday reports. Slayton posted to his personal X account Jan. 10 implying that he dealt with a right hand injury throughout the campaign, and it appears that his thumb was the source of the issue. Despite the injury, the fifth-year wideout played in every game for the Giants this season, leading the club with 79 targets (of which he caught 60) and 770 receiving yards while hauling in four touchdowns. If his thumb heals as expected, and depending on what changes the Giants make in the offseason, Slayton could head into the 2024 campaign as the team's No. 1 wideout.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Hauls in TD against Philly

    Slayton caught five of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Eagles. The wideout tied Wan'Dale Robinson and Darren Waller for the team lead with five grabs each, but Slayton was the only Giants receiver to get into the end zone, connecting with Tyrod Taylor on a 19-yard score late in the second quarter. Slayton tied his career high with 50 catches in 2023 and set a new personal best with 770 receiving yards, but the Giants could do a lot of housecleaning on the roster in the offseason, and it's not clear if the 26-year-old is part of their future plans.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Sleeper WRs

    There are two Giants receivers worth using as No. 3 Fantasy receivers in Week 18 against the Eagles in Slayton and Wan'Dale Robinson. Slayton has done well with Tyrod Taylor in the past two games with seven catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets over that span, and Slayton had a 69-yard touchdown from Taylor in Week 16 at Philadelphia. Robinson's two best games this season have come with Taylor in Week 8 at Buffalo (14.2 PPR points) and Week 17 against the Rams (19.9 PPR points). The Eagles enter Week 18 as the No. 1 team in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, and Slayton and Robinson could be great with Taylor under center.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    There are two Giants receivers to add this week in Slayton and Wan'Dale Robinson (20 percent rostered), and both could be useful No. 3 Fantasy receivers in Week 18 against the Eagles. Slayton has done well with Tyrod Taylor in the past two games with seven catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets over that span, and Slayton had a 69-yard touchdown from Taylor in Week 16 at Philadelphia. Robinson's two best games this season have come with Taylor in Week 8 at Buffalo (14.2 PPR points) and Week 17 against the Rams (19.9 PPR points). The Eagles enter Week 18 as the No. 1 team in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Catches 80-yard TD in loss

    Slayton caught four of six targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-25 loss to the Rams. Slayton got free for his second long touchdown reception in the last two games, and this one was even longer than his 69-yard score against the Eagles in Week 16. The big-play threat had only one touchdown all season prior to this hot stretch, but Slayton will have a nice opportunity to keep the late-season surge going in Week 18 when the Giants face the struggling Eagles defense again.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Week 17 Waiver Priority List

    Slayton had three catches for 90 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 16 at Philadelphia and now has scored at least 10.3 PPR points in consecutive games. He caught a 69-yard touchdown from Tyrod Taylor against the Eagles, and hopefully Taylor starts again in Week 17 against the Rams. Slayton can be used as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in deeper leagues for that matchup.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Posts best line of season

    Slayton recorded three receptions (on three targets) for 90 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 33-25 loss to the Eagles. Slayton posted his highest yardage total of the season and continued his upward tick in production since Week 11. The majority of his 90 yards came on a 69-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter on a deep throw down the left sideline from Tyrod Taylor. Overall, Slayton has topped 60 receiving yards in three of his last five games and has shown the ability to produce with both Taylor and Tommy DeVito under center.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Leading receiver for losing side

    Slayton had four receptions on eight targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 24-6 loss to New Orleans. Slayton finished as the Giants' leading receiver on a low-volume passing day, producing modest fantasy results in the process. The 63 yards represented the No. 1 wideout's third-highest yardage total through 14 games this season, highlighting how anemic the Giants' offense has been in 2023. Slayton should continue to operate as New York's top receiver against Philadelphia next Monday, but his fantasy appeal remains limited to those in deeper formats.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Quiet performance in Week 14

    Slayton finished Monday's 24-22 win against Green Bay with two catches on two targets for 14 yards. Slayton had his second straight subpar performance as a pass catcher, equaling the number of receptions he produced in Week 12 against New England and finishing with two fewer yards. The veteran wideout appeared to have a breakout with four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 versus Washington, but he hasn't been able to follow that up with significant production. Slayton has been plagued by inconsistency throughout the campaign, so it's hard to trust him in fantasy lineups.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Suits up but held in check Week 12

    Slayton (neck) caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Patriots. Slayton surprisingly suited up after being listed as doubtful heading into the game, but his lack of productivity may have been related to the injury that forced him to exit halfway through last week's win over Washington. Slayton scored his first touchdown of the season last week to go with a season-high 82 receiving yards, and he'll look to rekindle his chemistry with quarterback Tommy DeVito in Week 14 against the Packers after getting a chance to heal further during a Week 13 bye.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Surprisingly active Sunday

    Slayton (neck) is active for Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. A neck injury contained Slayton to a pair of limited practices during Week 12 prep, and the writing seemed to be on the wall for him after coach Brian Daboll said Friday that he didn't expect the wide receiver to play Sunday. A subsequent doubtful designation forecast as much, but Slayton bucked all trends and will be available to the Giants offense this weekend. Through 11 games to date, Slayton has put together a 30-419-1 line on 50 targets while working with three different quarterbacks.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Listed as doubtful

    Slayton (neck) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Slayton returned to practice Thursday after an early exit from Sunday's win over Washington, but it appears he isn't quite healthy enough to play. His likely absence could free up snaps for a number of different wide receivers, including Sterling Shepard, Isaiah Hodgins and Jalin Hyatt. The Giants have a Week 13 bye after Sunday's matchup with New England.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Practicing Friday

    Slayton (neck) is now practicing Friday, after coach Brian Daboll said the wideout wouldn't participate, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Slayton may thus have a chance to play, despite Daboll's previous comments that suggested it was unlikely. Slayton may end up listed as 'questionable' rather than 'doubtful' when the Giants release their final injury report Friday afternoon.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Not expected to play

    Coach Brian Daboll suggested Friday that Slayton (neck) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Patriots, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Slayton returned to a limited practice Thursday but now isn't participating Friday. Daboll expects the wideout to be listed as doubtful on the Giants' final injury report.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Bumps up to limited Thursday

    Slayton (neck) is listed as limited on Thursday's injury report, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. After leaving this past Sunday's win at Washington due to an arm injury, Slayton was listed as a non-participant Wednesday due to a neck issue. Fortunately for the wide receiver, he upped his estimated activity level one day later and has one more chance to get back to full before the end of the week, when the Giants may give him a designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Patriots.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Dealing with neck injury

    Slayton -- who isn't practicing Wednesday -- has a neck injury rather than an arm injury, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports. Slayton was ruled out of this past Sunday's win over Washington with what was described as an arm injury after taking a big hit shortly before halftime. The Giants have since classified Slayton's injury differently, but his status will be worth monitoring heading into this Sunday's matchup with New England nonetheless. He will have two more opportunities to practice this week before the Giants potentially give him an injury designation.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Not practicing Wednesday

    Slayton (arm) won't practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Slayton now has two more chances to practice ahead of Sunday's contest against the Patriots. If the wideout is unable to play this weekend, Wan'Dale Robinson, Jalin Hyatt, Sterling Shepard and Isaiah Hodgins would be in line to lead the Giants' wideout corps.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Won't return Sunday

    Slayton has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Commanders with an arm injury, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. He recorded four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown on five targets prior to his departure. The Giants initially listed Slayton as questionable to return to the contest after he took a big hit to his right arm on a third-down play on the Giants' final possession of the first half, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. He wasn't on the field for the Giants' first drive of the second half, however, and was downgraded to out. The Giants should offer more details on the extent of Slayton's injury in the days to come, but for now, his status will bear watching heading into the team's Week 12 game versus New England.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Unproductive with rookie QB

    Slayton tallied three catches (on four targets) for 21 yards in a blowout Week 10 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Slayton tied for the team lead in targets and receptions, but that didn't amount to much production on a day when rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito threw for only 86 yards in his first NFL start. Slayton continues to log a healthy snap count every week and leads Giants wideouts in targets and receiving yards on the campaign, though that's amounted to a quiet 26-337-0 line through 10 contests. Daniel Jones (knee) is out for the season, so unless DeVito manages to break out unexpectedly behind New York's porous offensive line, the rest-of-season outlook for Slayton isn't promising.
