Larry Donnell on pace to shatter Giants' records
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Giants tight end Larry Donnell is on pace to finish with 100 catches for 944 yards and 16 touchdowns. Even if he tails off considerably, he still has a chance to break several team records.

The Giants' record for catches by a tight end is 74, set by Jeremy Shockey in his 2002 rookie season. Donnell has 25 through four games.

The franchise record for touchdown receptions by a tight end is nine, shared by Joe Walton (1962) and Aaron Thomas (1967). Donnell has four.

Mark Bavaro owns the receiving yards record by a tight end with 1,001 in 1986. Donnell has 236.

Donnell caught three scoring passes in last week's win at Washington, becoming the fourth player in team history to score three touchdowns in a game after entering with no more than one career score.

Taking a look at the tight end waiver wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With key players like Vernon Davis (back), Niles Paul (concussion), Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (elbow) dealing with injuries, finding help on the waiver wire might be the key to success at the tight end position. Here are some of Jamey Eisenberg's thoughts on the best pickups for this week.

Larry Donnell of the Giants and Travis Kelce are likely to be the most-added tight ends when waivers run Wednesday morning, and Jamey admits to being "torn" on which he prefers. Dwayne Allen of the Colts, Garrett Graham of the Texans and Reed round out the top-five, while Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Clay Harbor and Jace Amaro are sleeper adds for deep leagues.

Charles Clay of the Dolphins and Ladarius Green of the Chargers are considered drop-worthy, if you need a roster spot.

Larry Donnell worth the hype
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

If you want to add Larry Donnell to your Fantasy squad, this week is going to be your last chance to do it -- the breakout star for the Giants is going to be 100 percent owned in CBSSports.com by Wednesday morning.

Donnell's rise through the ownership ranks has been more of a slow burn thus far, after he racked up 182 yards and a touchdown through three games. However, he exploded last Thursday for three touchdowns, and has now reached must-own status heading into Week 5.

Whether he can keep this kind of play up remains to be seen, but Donnell has clearly emerged as one of Eli Manning's favorite targets. Through four games, he is second on the Giants in receiving yards, and has also been the second-most targeted player on the roster, with 31 of Eli Manning's 139 throws going his way.

Defenses are almost certainly going to key in on Donnell more often in the red zone now that they have seen what kind of weapon he can be. However, Eli has targeted him at least six times in all four games, so we don't expect him to disappear from the offense. Even against a Falcons defense in Week 5 that has yet to allow a tight end to find the end zone this season.  

Donnell isn't at the top of the must-add list ahead of Week 5, but he isn't far off either.

Larry Donnell explodes for three scores
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Giants tight end Larry Donnell had a monstrous game Thursday against Washington.

The Washington DST did not have an answer for Donnell early. On New York's second drive of the game, Donnell caught two passes, including a 5 yard score. He didn't stop there. On the second play of the second quarter, Donnell managed another score, this time from 6 yards out. On the next drive, Donnell scored a third time, hauling in a pass over a cornerback. He would finish with seven receptions for 54 yards and three scores. Six of those catches would come in the first half. Donnell was targeted eight times during the contest.

Donnell will look for more Week 5 against the Falcons.

Larry Donnell loses fumble during Week 3 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Giants tight end Larry Donnell caught all of his six targets for 45 yards during a 30-17 win Week 3 vs. Houston. His longest catch went 18 yards.

While Donnell had at least five catches for a third straight game, he also lost the first fumble of his career Sunday. He fumbled down inside the Texans' 5-yard line after recording a 6-yard catch late in the first quarter. Johnathan Joseph recovered the fumble at the 3-yard line and returned it to the 27-yard line.

Donnell has 18 catches for 182 yards and one touchdown through three games. The Giants are back in action Thursday at Washington.
