The NY Daily News believes it "remains to be seen" whether Odell Beckham (hamstring) will play in Week 5 against Atlanta.

Beckham has resumed practicing with the Giants' wide receivers, but the team may not want to risk another setback by pushing him too hard. He certainly won't be a full-time player in his first game back. Look for Rueben Randle, Victor Cruz, and Preston Parker to remain the Giants' three-receiver set against the Falcons. Beckham could be mixed in as the No. 4 on limited snaps.
Sep 29 - 3:45 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) is practicing on a limited basis Monday, as expected.

Beckham, who says he's as close to 100 percent as he's going to get, has a real shot to finally make his NFL debut when the Giants host the Falcons Sunday. He'll likely be eased in initially, but is worth a stash in deeper 12-team formats. The Giants want to run three-wide sets as their base offense.

Giants CB Jayron Hosley has been reinstated from suspension.

Hosley was suspended for the first four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The Giants have until Monday to decide whether to add him to the 53-man roster.
Sep 27 - 5:40 PM

Rashad Jennings is on pace for 324 carries.

Jennings has 48 touches over the last five days. The Giants rested him in the second half on Thursday night, allowing rookie Andre Williams to run for 66 yards and a touchdown. 29-year-old Jennings has never had more than 163 carries in a season and isn't going to hold up on his current workloads. Williams showed well in mop-up duty and is a candidate for an expanded role. Outside of his Week 3 matchup with the Texans, Jennings is averaging 3.5 yards per carry.
Sep 27 - 5:36 PM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano says Rashad Jennings is the Giants' "clear No. 1" running back.

Rookie Andre Williams saw more carries than Jennings on Thursday night, but Graziano said that would not have been the case in a "normal Sunday game." "The split workload Thursday had more to do with keeping Jennings from breaking down under a too-strenuous five-day workload than it did anything else," said Graziano. Jennings is still the No. 1 back in New York, and will be in the RB1 conversation against the Falcons Week 5.
Sep 27 - 11:48 AM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) expects to return for Week 5 against the Falcons.

Beason appears to have avoided major injury with his Week 2 aggravation. The Giants haven't missed Beason against the Texans and Redskins, but badly need him back so they can stop stretching Mark Herzlich at strong-side 'backer. SLB Jameel McClain has been manning the middle.
Sep 26 - 12:50 AM

Giants TE Adrien Robinson caught his first career pass in New York's Week 4 win over the Redskins.

Robinson's 15-yard catch, and lone target, was over two years in the making. It came deep in a blowout, and after Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells combined for four touchdowns. Robinson won't come into fantasy value this season.
Sep 26 - 12:48 AM

Andre Williams rushed 15 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Redskins.

Williams' lone target in the passing game resulted in a horrifying drop. It was the only touch of gray on an otherwise fantastic evening. With the G-Men pile-driving Washington in the second half, Williams took a load off for starter Rashad Jennings, notching his first career touchdown in the process. Williams' power shined through, as he was paving over Redskins defenders for tough yards in obvious rushing situations. Williams remains a mere handcuff behind workhorse Jennings, but is carving out a future in New York.
Sep 26 - 12:36 AM

Rueben Randle caught 8-of-10 targets for 89 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Redskins.

Randle was inches from two touchdowns, but continues to have tough luck near the end zone. One of Randle's missed targets was a pass he caught for a score, only to have it speared out of his hands by a helmet before he "completed the catch." Randle's final grab was a 21-yarder where he was tackled at the two-yard line. Inexplicably, Larry Donnell caught three of Eli Manning's four scores. The good news is, Randle is finally on the same page with Eli, and operating well within the flow of the Giants' new offense. There's WR2 hope for him yet.
Sep 26 - 12:31 AM

Victor Cruz caught 6-of-10 targets for 108 yards in New York's Week 4 win over the Redskins.

One of Cruz's missed connections was a brutal third-down drop on the Giants' opening series, but he was much better thereafter. Cruz was taking short passes and making people miss. The 100-yard effort was his second straight after a ragged Weeks 1-2. Along with the rest of the Giants' offense, Cruz has awakened as new OC Ben McAdoo's system starts to click. He'll be a high-end WR2 against the Falcons' shaky defense in Week 5.
Sep 26 - 12:12 AM

Rashad Jennings rushed 13 times for 55 yards in New York's Week 4 win over the Redskins.

Jennings lost three yards on his lone reception. His only other target was a dropped touchdown. Curiously, Jennings' final touch came midway through the third quarter, but it appeared to be nothing more than the G-Men resting a veteran back in a blowout four days after he took the rock 34 times. The scoreboard read 31-14 when Jennings checked out. Rookie Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis were called on to kill the clock. Reactionary fantasy owners will no doubt panic, but there appears to be zero reason for worry. A volume back doing everything that's been asked of him, Jennings will remain in the RB1 conversation against the Falcons' shaky defense in Week 5.
Sep 25 - 11:56 PM

Larry Donnell caught 7-of-8 targets for 54 yards and three touchdowns in the Giants' Week 4 dismantling of the Redskins.

The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Donnell was taking names in the red zone, boxing out and skying for touchdowns. Three-score nights are always fluky, especially for third-year undrafted free agent tight ends, but there's nothing fluky about Donnell's emergence as a chain mover and end-zone target for Eli Manning. He's a massive human being, one with strong hands and decent movement skills for his size. Donnell should settle in as a back-end TE1, but he's clearly not a fantasy fad.
Sep 25 - 11:51 PM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-39 passes for 300 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in New York's 45-14, Week 4 win over the Redskins, adding a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Manning's "interception" was a pass that got ripped out of Rueben Randle's hands in the end zone. Eli has shouldered the blame for no shortage of picks in his career, but this wasn't one of them. Since getting walloped by the Lions in Week 1, Manning has looked reborn in new OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting system, posting an 8:3 TD:INT ratio while averaging 270 yards. The G-Men aren't just paying lip service to going uptempo, and it's dramatically improved Manning's game. An offensive line that's actually blocking hasn't hurt, either. Manning should keep rolling in Week 5, when the G-Men host the defense-less Falcons.
Sep 25 - 11:37 PM

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) is inactive for Week 4 against the Redskins.

It's unclear if Beason even made the trip. Jameel McClain will fill in at middle linebacker, with Mark Herzlich manning the strong-side. Also inactive for the Giants are WR Odell Beckham, LB Devon Kennard, OT Charles Brown, DE Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer and DT Jay Bromley.
Sep 25 - 6:57 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano expects Andre Williams to be more involved in Thursday night's game against Washington.

Rashad Jennings is coming off a career-high 34 carries in Week 3, and coach Tom Coughlin said the team is "monitoring his workload" on a short week. Williams is a good bet see his highest snap total of the season on Thursday night. Washington is allowing just 64.7 rushing yards per game, so he'll remain no more than a RB4/5.
