Preston Parker had two catches for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Parker was the first-team slot receiver in a lot of sets, but he only saw three targets on a day Eli Manning attempted 33 passes. Even deep leaguers can move on as the Giants head into their bye.

Daniel Fells caught one pass for a 27-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Fells' touchdown came on his lone target. It resulted in sick feelings for Larry Donnell owners, who did not score on any of his seven catches.
Oct 19 - 7:58 PM

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 74 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Randle had one tough third-down drop and couldn't come down with a goal-line fade, but he had a strong game. Most importantly, he was on the same page with Eli Manning throughout, even completing a pretty back-shoulder throw. Randle's touchdown rate is sure to rise going forward (he has two TDs in seven games so far), but the immediate schedule is difficult: Bye, vs. IND, at SEA, vs. SF.

Larry Donnell caught seven passes for 90 yards in Sunday's loss at Dallas.

Donnell bounced back after two quiet games by flashing the sizable athleticism we know he has up the seam. But he lost two fourth-quarter fumbles, errors that will cause him to feel pain at the hands of Tom Coughlin. Donnell is just a borderline TE1 heading into the bye.

Peyton Hillis rushed six times for 29 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Hillis was the third-down and two-minute back behind Andre Williams. He'll keep that bit role after the bye, when Rashad Jennings (knee) will likely return.
Oct 19 - 7:49 PM

Andre Williams rushed 18 times for 51 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

It was Williams' second straight disappointing day. The Giants came out with a plan to feature him heavily, but he only got to the second level once (on a 22-yard run). Similar to Eddie Lacy, Williams is a violent and powerful runner -- but not one that can make people miss in the hole. With Rashad Jennings (knee) tentatively expected back after the Week 8 bye, Williams' arrow is pointing down. He's rushed 35 times for 110 yards with zero touchdowns in his two games as the starter.
Oct 19 - 7:39 PM

Eli Manning completed 21-of-33 passes for 248 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Manning's box score looked better than he played, but the adjustment to life after Victor Cruz (knee) went smoothly. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham were both sharp, with Beckham showing an ability to play out of the slot. Eli is firmly a solid QB2, but with a bye and then tough matchups (IND, SEA, SF), shallow leaguers won't lose too much by moving on.
Oct 19 - 7:36 PM

Odell Beckham caught four passes for 34 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

In the first game since Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury, Beckham impressed by playing just about every snap and operating all over the formation. His first touchdown came on a pretty route in which he roasted Brandon Carr for a 9-yard score. The second score was out of slot, as the rookie sat down in a zone and Eli Manning found him from five yards out. With explosive change-of-direction ability and strong hands, Beckham is quickly becoming a favorite of Eli. The only bad note is that the Giants have tough matchups after the bye: IND, SEA, SF.

Giants MLB Jon Beason aggravated his toe injury in Sunday's Week 7 game at Dallas.

The oft-injured Beason has been battling this toe issue for more than a month now. It's a major concern for the run defense of the Cowboys. Although Beason's X-rays came back negative, he was ruled out for the game.
Oct 19 - 5:38 PM

Giants DT Cullen Jenkins left Sunday's Week 7 game at Dallas with a calf injury.

Jenkins went down in the second quarter and is doubtful to return.
Oct 19 - 5:30 PM

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Cowboys.

It's big news for the Giants as they try to hold down Dez Bryant. Meanwhile, they have decided not to activate Corey Washington despite Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury. The rest of the Giants' inactives: RB Rashad Jennings, OL Adam Snyder, DE Kerry Wynn, T James Brewer, OL Brandon Mosley and DT Jay Bromley.
Oct 19 - 3:03 PM's Jordan Raanan is forecasting a "BIG game" for rookie Andre Williams in Sunday's clash with the Cowboys.

It'd certainly be refreshing for fantasy owners disappointed by Williams' slow Week 6 against the Eagles, which was the product of New York getting blown out on the road. The Giants are again on the road at Dallas, but the Cowboys' run defense has been soft when tested. If the Giants maintain time of possession, Williams has the potential to pay RB2 dividends as a fantasy start.
Oct 19 - 11:45 AM

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring/back, questionable) traveled with the team to Dallas.

Despite doing next to nothing in practice this week, Rodgers-Cromartie traveling with the team leaves open the possibility he plays against the Cowboys. Even if he goes, coach Tom Coughlin has left open the possibility he plays a limited role. Zack Bowman is in line to start if DRC misses the game.
Oct 18 - 12:57 PM

Rashad Jennings (knee) said he is targeting the Giants' Week 9 game against the Colts for his return.

Jennings has already been ruled out this week, and the Giants have a bye Week 8. Jennings plans to begin running in a pool next week, and will hopefully get some practices in leading up to Week 9. Andre Williams will get at least one more start.
Oct 18 - 9:20 AM

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7.

After doing next to nothing in practice all week, coach Tom Coughlin indicated DRC could be available for a limited role in Sunday's meeting with the Cowboys. It's also quite possible Rodgers-Cromartie won't play at all, which would likely force Zack Bowman or Jayron Hosley to start opposite Prince Amukamara.
