Victor Cruz (calf) is not practicing Wednesday.

It'd probably be best to just temporarily suspend blurbs on Cruz until he does practice. Dwayne Harris handled slot duties for the Giants Week 4.
Oct 7 - 11:21 AM

Giants signed WR Myles White off their practice squad.

White led the Packers in receiving in the preseason with 16 catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns. He could eventually push for snaps if Victor Cruz (calf) remains sidelined. TE Daniel Fells was I.R.'ed in a corresponding move.
Oct 7 - 8:55 AM

Newsday's Bob Glauber reports the Giants are hopeful Jason-Pierre Paul (hand) can return for the final four games of the season.

"If he gets back for four games, that would be good. If it's more, that would be a bonus," a source said. "It's still possible he doesn't come back [this year]." Bleacher Report's Jason Cole said Pierre-Paul plans to report to the Giants in the next two weeks.

Giants placed TE Daniel Fells on season-ending injured reserve with a staph infection in his ankle.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Fells underwent foot surgery this week. Coach Tom Coughlin expressed optimism Fells would be able to play against the Bills early last week, but he was ruled out on Saturday. It is likely the team discovered the staph infection over the weekend. Larry Donnell played 69-of-74 snaps with Fells sidelined. The Giants will need to bring in another tight end.
Oct 5 - 9:49 AM

Dwayne Harris caught five passes for 51 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Harris got the scoring started for the Giants with a 21-yard touchdown out of the slot. The Giants are looking for someone to emerge in the slot with Victor Cruz (calf) still out, and Harris staked his claim to the spot Sunday. This will likely go down as an outlier performance. Continue to ignore Harris in fantasy.
Oct 4 - 6:37 PM

Larry Donnell caught 5-of-7 targets for 38 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Donnell was second to Odell Beckham (12) in targets Sunday, but he still managed to do very little with his looks. Donnell is merely a middling TE2, who doesn't score many touchdowns. He'll get the 49ers at home in Week 5.
Oct 4 - 6:25 PM

Rueben Randle caught 3-of-6 targets for 31 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Randle continues to be an every-down player with Victor Cruz (calf) still on the shelf. His six targets were second on the team to Odell Beckham's 12. Randle's lone highlight was his 11-yard touchdown in the second quarter, beating Stephon Gilmore's soft coverage on a slant. He'll be on the WR3 radar in Week 5 when the Giants host the 49ers' weak pass defense.
Oct 4 - 6:11 PM

Odell Beckham caught 5-of-12 targets for 38 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

Beckham's 12 targets were a team-high, but he and Eli Manning weren't on the same page a couple of times. The Bills chose to not shadow him and simply let LCB Ronald Darby and RCB Stephon Gilmore play sides, as they've had a nice first month of the season. Manning tried to get a touchdown to Beckham on a fade play in the end zone late, but Darby broke it up. Beckham also made a highlight-reel one-handed catch on the sideline in the second half, but couldn't get either foot in bounds. Through four games, Beckham is on pace for a 96-1,228-8 line on 160 targets. It has the looks of actually being a "down" stat line for the ultra-talented Beckham. He should catch 100 balls and obliterate 1,000 yards while flirting with double-digit touchdowns. The Giants get the 49ers at home Week 5.
Oct 4 - 5:54 PM

Shane Vereen rushed five times for 21 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game after catching 12 passes across the first three games. If Vereen isn't making noise as a pass catcher, he's useless in fantasy. He's behind both Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams for carries. Vereen lined up out wide a couple times Sunday, but he's barely a FLEX play in PPR.
Oct 4 - 5:27 PM

Andre Williams rushed for 35 yards on 11 carries in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

He was targeted once in the passing game but dropped it. Williams continues to rotate early-down snaps with Rashad Jennings and remains irrelevant in season-long leagues as an RB4. The sophomore is on pace for 484 yards rushing with four touchdowns a quarter of the way into the season. He's averaging 3.27 YPC.
Oct 4 - 5:12 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed nine times for 38 yards and caught both of his targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Bills.

As has been the case the first month of the season, Jennings, Andre Williams, and Shane Vereen rotated snaps in the Giants' backfield. Jennings wasn't making much noise before scoring from 51 yards out in the fourth quarter on a catch-and-run dump-off at the line of scrimmage. Two Bills defenders missed tackles on the play. Through four games, Jennings is averaging a mere 3.19 YPC and is on pace for just 536 yards rushing with 28 catches. He's barely on the FLEX radar.
Oct 4 - 4:57 PM

Eli Manning completed 20-of-35 passes for 212 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Giants' 24-10, Week 4 win over the Bills.

The yards are nothing to write home about, but Manning was advantageous and controlled the game at the line of scrimmage, barking out pre-snap orders. Manning found slot man Dwayne Harris from 21 yards out for his first touchdown. Later, Manning hit Rueben Randle for an 11-yard touchdown on a slant before dumping one off to Rashad Jennings, who broke two tackles on the way to the end zone for a game-sealing 51-yard score. Manning tosses his first interception of the season late at the goal line, going for his fourth touchdown. Through four games, Manning is on pace for a 28:4 TD:INT ratio. Manning will be on the QB1 radar next week when the Giant host the 49ers' awful pass defense.
Oct 4 - 4:26 PM

Giants SLB Devon Kennard exited Week 4 against the Bills with a hamstring injury.

He left midway through the fourth quarter and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Kennard made an impressive, leaping interception in the first half.
Oct 4 - 4:04 PM

Giants LT Ereck Flowers (ankle) is active for Week 4 against the Bills.

Flowers missed Week 3 after rolling his ankle Week 2. The Giants are going to need him against the Bills' strong defense. Inactive for the Giants are WR Victor Cruz (calf), TE Daniel Fells (ankle), LB Jasper Brinkley, S Cooper Taylor, TE Jerome Cunningham, DE Robert Ayers (hamstring), and DT Markus Kuhn.
Oct 4 - 11:33 AM

Rashad Jennings is in danger of losing his starting job to Andre Williams.

"Based on what the coaches have seen on film, Williams could surpass Jennings as the No. 1 back," ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported. Jennings started the first three games, but is averaging 2.8 YPC. It's possible Jennings could lose lead back duties with his struggles likely to continue against Buffalo this week. Williams averaged 7.2 YPC on six Week 2 carries and scored a touchdown in the Giants’ Thursday night win over Washington.
