Larry Donnell here to stay?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After catching just one pass in his previous two games combined, Giants tight end Larry Donnell got back on track Week 7 at Dallas, catching seven passes for a season-high 90 yards.

Considering it was the Giants' first game without star wide receiver Victor Cruz, Donnell was expected to play a bigger role in the passing game, but a resurgence of this magnitude should remind us all how he came to be owned in 83 percent of Fantasy leagues in the first place. Over the first four weeks, he averaged 6.3 catches for 59 yards, scoring four touchdowns.

One potential pitfall for Donnell is that he lost two fumbles in Week 7, giving him three fumbles lost for the season, but with so few tight ends capable of his kind of production in a given week, the Giants would have to suggest his playing time is in jeopardy for me to pass on Donnell in Fantasy.

His production fell when rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham entered the mix in Week 4. Now that Cruz is out of the mix, Donnell's production figures to rise again.

Giants TE Larry Donnell leads the way Week 7
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Giants tight end Larry Donnell had a mixed game Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Donnell led the club with seven receptions and 90 yards during the game. He also turned the ball over twice, losing two fumbles. Both fumbles came in the fourth quarter, as the Giants were attempting to come back against the Cowboys. Donnell is on a bye Week 8.

Larry Donnell could be reborn
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

You're probably not all that motivated to start Giants tight end Larry Donnell Week 7 at Dallas. He has all of one catch for 6 yards the last two weeks combined. But with Victor Cruz lost to a season-ending knee injury, the Giants need to find some new targets for quarterback Eli Manning. And Donnell has already shown he's capable of an expanded role, having averaged 6.3 catches for 59.0 yards with four touchdowns over the first four weeks.

Better yet, he might be Manning's best choice for this particular matchup. The Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, allowing 227.5 yards per game, but they've given up the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Meanwhile, they've given up the most Fantasy points per game to tight ends.

Certainly, if you have Julius Thomas, Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Martellus Bennett and maybe Jordan Reed and Antonio Gates, you wouldn't give a player like Donnell a second thought. But otherwise, he might be your best choice at tight end despite his production the last two weeks.

TE Donnell ready for 'whatever role' Giants need in wake of Cruz injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Victor Cruz sidelined the rest of the season with a major knee injury, the Giants will need options in the passing game to step up in his absence. One of those options could be tight end Larry Donnell, who has been held to one catch over his last two games after totaling 25 catches for 236 yards and four touchdowns in his first four games.

"Whatever role is thrown at me, I'm going to do everything I can to do my best and it's just not me," Donnell said, per NJ.com. "It's Rueben (Randle), Odell (Beckham), it's going to be a team effort.

"Victor was a major part and took a lot of attention away from everyone. Me, I feel very confident."

Victor Cruz injuries gives others chance to emerge
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It's official. Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has a torn patellar tendon in his right knee and will have season-ending surgery, leaving quarterback Eli Manning without his favorite target.

Or at least one of his favorites.

Turns out Cruz wasn't even the Giants' most-targeted receiver through the first six games. Rueben Randle was and becomes the clear No. 1 with Cruz out. He again led the way in targets with nine Week 6 at Philadelphia. He had a modest 58 yards on five catches, but let's not forget Manning threw for only 151.

Odell Beckham probably gets the biggest bump with Cruz's injury. Playing only his second game after missing the first four with a hamstring injury, he was targeted four times in Week 6, catching two passes for 28 yards. But he was on the field for 88 percent of the Giants snaps and showed his playmaking ability in Week 5, even scoring a touchdown. On a day when the Giants don't face a defense playing at its best, Beckham could impress.

Tight end Larry Donnell could get back to being a bigger part of the game plan with Cruz down. After catching 25 passes for 236 yards in the Giants' first four games, he has just one catch for 6 yards in their last two. He's probably already owned in your league, as is Randle, but Cruz's injury is enough incentive to stick with him a little longer.
