Rueben Randle caught five passes for 27 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Randle was targeted a team-high ten times, and the chemistry between he and Eli Manning appears to be growing. But Randle is seeing mostly short passes. He did see one end-zone look, but got tangled up with the Houston cornerback and couldn't make the one-handed catch. Randle gets the DeAngelo Hall-less Redskins on Thursday night. He's a boom-or-bust WR3/4.

Larry Donnell caught six passes for 45 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Donnell caught all six passes that came his way, and has now been targeted 22 times on the season. Donnell was on his way to the end zone in the first half, but ended up losing a fumble at the four-yard line. He's put himself in the TE1/2 mix as a favorite of Eli Manning. Donnell gets the Redskins on Thursday night.

Victor Cruz caught five passes for 107 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

After a drop-filled first two weeks, Cruz reeled in 5-of-6 targets. He worked mostly against CB Kareem Jackson. Cruz took a quick slant upfield for a 61-yard gain in the first half, but was caught from behind around the 15-yard line. He later found the end zone on a post pattern from 26 yards out. Cruz stopped on a dime, changed direction, and exploded toward the end zone for the score. The Giants' passing game has found a bit of a rhythm the past two weeks. They'll look to continue it Thursday against the Redskins. Cruz is a solid WR2/3.
Sep 21 - 5:35 PM

Andre Williams rushed for 18 yards on six carries in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Williams got one series to himself, but didn't do much with the carries and was way out-touched by Rashad Jennings 34-6. Jennings also gets all the goal-line looks, and cashed one in for a one-yard score Sunday. Williams has no fantasy value in re-draft leagues. He won't have any unless Jennings gets hurt.
Sep 21 - 5:13 PM

Eli Manning completed 21-of-28 passes for 234 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Giants' Week 3, 30-17 win over the Texans.

Manning has now posted back-to-back strong starts after the preseason and Week 1 debacles. Eli hit Victor Cruz for a 61-yard gain on a quick slant early in the first half, before again finding Cruz on a post for a 26-yard score. His best throw of the game, though, went to Daniel Fells for a nine-yard touchdown. Eli placed the ball over the top of the safety and to the right of a linebacker only where Fells could catch it. The offense is starting to wake up for Giants, but Eli is still just a low-end QB2. The G-Men take on the Redskins on Thursday night.
Sep 21 - 4:47 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed for 176 yards and one touchdown on 34 carries in the Giants' Week 3, 30-17 drubbing of the Texans.

It was a career day for Jennings, who set a new career-high in rushing yards by 68 yards over his previous mark. He's now totaled 381 yards and two scores through three games as the Giants' clear-cut every-down workhorse. Jennings plays in every situation and gets the goal-line looks, as he pounded his score in from one yard out in this one. Jennings gets the Redskins next Thursday night.
Sep 21 - 4:14 PM

Giants declared MLB Jon Beason, WR Odell Beckham, OL James Brewer, OT Charles Brown, DT Jay Bromley, DE Kerry Wynn, and LB Devon Kennard inactive for Week 3 against the Texans.

Beason is out indefinitely with his foot injury. Jameel McClain will start at the MIKE spot. Beckham will look to make his NFL debut in Week 4 against Washington.
Sep 21 - 11:39 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Odell Beckham (hamstring) is fully expected to make his season debut next Thursday night against the Redskins.

Beckham didn't practice at all this past week. But the Giants are likely just being cautious with their first-round pick after multiple setbacks and with a short week on the horizon. Preston Parker will be the Giants' No. 3 receiver Sunday against the Texans. Beckham will eventually push for snaps in three-wide sets, but it may not happen immediately. He has no re-draft appeal.
Sep 21 - 10:36 AM

Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed Jon Beason (foot) will miss the Giants' Week 3 matchup with the Texans.

Beason's season was thought to be in jeopardy after he aggravated the foot injury that sidelined him most of the summer against the Cardinals Week 2. Beason shed his protective walking boot on Thursday, however, and spoke as if he could play this week. There is still no timetable for Beason's return, but it now appears he will be able to get back on the field this season. Jameel McClain should start at middle linebacker in Beason's absence.
Sep 20 - 8:21 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano has gotten indications from the coaches that Rashad Jennings will be asked to help in pass protection this week.

The Giants' shaky offensive line is going to need all the help they can get dealing with J.J. Watt. It appears they'll ask Jennings to stay in and help, or at least chip. Jennings, who has four catches in each of the first two games, may not get there this week.

NJ.com's Jordan Raanan expects Odell Beckham (hamstring) to be sidelined until at least Week 5.

Beckham has begun making sharp cuts and running at near-full speed in a straight line, but he hasn't practiced with the team in over a month. We wouldn't bother stashing Beckham in re-draft leagues, even in 14-teamers.

Giants OC Ben McAdoo said whatever they get from Odell Beckham (hamstring) this season "will be a good bonus."

Not exactly what most teams, especially bad ones like the Giants, expect from No. 12 overall picks. Beckham hasn't practiced fully in nearly three months, as he's been painfully slow to recover from a pulled hamstring. When Beckham does return, he's going to have some serious depth chart climbing to do.
Sep 19 - 10:00 AM

Preston Parker is expected to take over as the Giants' third receiver after Jerrel Jernigan's year-ending foot injury.

The G-Men are turning to journeyman slot-receiver type Parker over UDFA Corey Washington. Parker returns punts, so perhaps he now has some value in return-yardage league. Parker will be the No. 5 option in New York's passing game, behind Larry Donnell, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, and Rashad Jennings.
Sep 17 - 8:34 PM

Odell Beckham (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Beckham was able to run sprints on the side, but still hasn't been cleared. Coach Tom Coughlin has already confirmed Beckham won't return in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 6:37 PM

Coach Tom Coughlin said Odell Beckham (hamstring) won't play Week 3 against the Texans.

"Not to my knowledge," Coughlin said. "Not with the team." Beckham remains sidelined at practice, and isn't expected to take any reps this week. Preston Parker will fill in as the Giants' No. 3 receiver in place of Jerrel Jernigan (foot, I.R.). Parker (6'/200) has just one catch since the 2011 season with the Bucs.
