Travis Rudolph hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 34 yards in the Giants Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Rudolph was promoted from the practice squad earlier this year, but this was his first game with a sizeable impact. Manning targeted him deep multiple times, barely missing him. Leading the team in targets is noticeable but with Sterling Shepard returning Rudolph likely won't be fantasy viable.

Tavarres King caught 3-of-5 targets for 48 yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

King was second on the team in targets with his best catch going for 19 yards. He's a speedy perimeter receiver but isn't more than a desperate WR4 in fantasy.
Nov 19 - 6:06 PM

Roger Lewis caught 3-of-4 targets for 55 yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Lewis continues to produce minimally, and with Sterling Shepard likely to return soon he isn't worth rostering outside of deep dynasty leagues.
Nov 19 - 6:01 PM

Shane Vereen caught 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs, adding two carries for 16 yards.

Vereen's rushing yardage came from two 3rd and long draws with most defenders backed up. Even with few pass-catching option healthy for the Giants, Vereen has little fantasy value.
Nov 19 - 5:57 PM

Wayne Gallman rushed six times for 19 yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Gallman struggled to gain consistent yardage on most of his carries, struggling on a per-carry basis like his counterpart Orleans Darkwa. He shouldn't be owned in redraft fantasy leagues.
Nov 19 - 5:54 PM

Evan Engram caught 1-of-6 targets for nine yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

Engram had one of his worst games as a pro, dropping multiple passes and drawing an offensive pass-interference penalty on what would have been a big gain. He will have better games in the future and will be a TE1 against Washington in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:49 PM

Orleans Darkwa rushed 20 times for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

He added two receptions for 16 yards. Darkwa was the lead back with Wayne Gallman mixing in occasionally. Darkwa had two bad drops to start the game, both of which would have generated positive yards. His touchdown came on a one-yard plunge in the second quarter. His production continues to be stable, clearing 70 rushing yards in 4-of-5 games. He will be a low-end RB2 against the Redskins in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:35 PM

Eli Manning completed 19-of-35 passes for 205 yards in the Giants' 12-9, Week 11 win over the Chiefs.

After an early touchdown in the second quarter by RB Orleans Darkwa, the Giants offense wasn't able to get anything going. Strong winds and multiple drops by Giants pass-catchers severely hindered Eli's fantasy output. Manning will likely be unable to perform better with the majority of his important skills players out with injuries. He will be on the streaming radar in Week 12 against the Redskins secondary if Sterling Shepard is able to return.
Nov 19 - 5:26 PM

Giants CB Eli Apple (personal) is inactive Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Apple missed a couple practices this week to be with his mother, who underwent brain surgery. Understandably, he was not ready to play today. Ross Cockrell will start with Apple sidelined.
Nov 19 - 11:53 AM

Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

This is not a surprise after he popped up on the report as questionable with migraines on Saturday, but it is a massive blow to the Giants' passing attack. Especially in a game where wind is a concern, Evan Engram is the only part of this passing game worth starting in standard leagues. New York also declared RT Justin Pugh (back), LB Kelvin Sheppard (groin), LB B.J. Goodson (ankle), CB Eli Apple (personal), QB Davis Webb, and OT John Greco inactive for Week 11.
Nov 19 - 11:26 AM

Giants RT Chad Wheeler will start Week 11 against the Chiefs.

The undrafted rookie is filling in for Justin Pugh, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Wheeler has played just two snaps this year, with both coming in a Week 4 loss to Tampa Bay. He'll have his work cut out for him protecting Eli Manning against four-time Pro Bowler Justin Houston. Kansas City's defense will be a chalky DFS play this week against the overmatched Giants.
Nov 19 - 9:42 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Sterling Shepard (questionable, illness) is dealing with migraines.

Shepard was added to the injury report on Saturday with an undisclosed illness, which has now been confirmed as migraines. He's still considered a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt versus Kansas City, though ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier that Shepard will likely be inactive. Impressive rookie Evan Engram would remain Eli Manning's go-to receiver if the migraines prevent Shepard from suiting up.
Nov 19 - 8:11 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sterling Shepard (illness) is unlikely to play against the Chiefs after being added to the injury report on Saturday, but will go through pre-game warmups before reaching a final determination.

Unbelievable. The Giants' highly-targeted fill-in No. 1 receiver was in golden position for a big day against the Chiefs' sieve-like defense. Now, even if he plays, fantasy owners will have to be leery after the late-week machinations. Shepard's absence would also put a huge dent in Eli Manning's streamer appeal. Tavarres King and Roger Lewis will vie for "No. 1" status if Shepard indeed sits. The only good news is that Giants/Chiefs kicks off at 1PM ET, meaning owners will know Shepard's status when setting their lineups.
Nov 18 - 11:52 PM

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports the Giants have "no current plans" to play Davis Webb this year.

There's been rumblings the Giants could see what they have in Webb in a lost season. Webb has reportedly made strides, but still hasn't passed Geno Smith for the backup role. Despite a down year, Eli Manning remains entrenched as the starter.

Giants added Sterling Shepard (illness) to the injury report as questionable.

Being added this late in the week is a concern, but players usually play through illnesses. The good news is the Giants kick at 1 ET, so we should know Shepard's status early. If he plays, Shepard will a must-start in a great matchup against the Chiefs.
