  • Giants' Olivier Vernon: Finishes strong
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon logged five total tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Cowboys. Vernon finished the season with seven sacks and 30 tackles in 11 games, respectable totals for an edge rusher who missed the first five games due to injury. Vernon is the third-highest-paid player on the team after Eli Manning -- who could be cut this offseason -- and Odell Beckham, so the Giants will need him to stay healthier in 2019. It's unlikely Vernon would be a candidate for release, as the Giants would save only $11.5 million of the $19.5 million in salary he's owed by doing so.

  • Giants' Olivier Vernon: Records 1.5 sacks in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon logged five tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 40-16 win over Washington. It's often said that sacks come in bunches, and Vernon has now made 3.5 sacks across his previous two games. After missing the first five weeks of the regular season due to an ankle injury, Vernon is coming on as a solid IDP play down the stretch. He'll look to record another solid outing against the Titans in Week 15.

  • Giants' Olivier Vernon: Notches sack
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon had two tackles and a sack in Thursday's 34-13 loss to the Eagles, his first game back from a preseason ankle injury. Vernon is the team's best edge rusher, so his presence is important to the defense. The 27-year-old was able to play 54 of 71 defensive snaps in his season debut.

  • Giants' Olivier Vernon: Cleared for Thursday's game
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon (ankle) doesn't have a designation on the Giants' final injury report for Thursday's game against the Eagles. Vernon was a limited practice participant throughout the week and will now make his first appearance in a game this season. The Giants have sorely missed their top edge defender, notching just six sacks in five games while allowing 4.6 yards per carry and 124 rushing yards per contest. It won't come as any surprise if Vernon is eased into action on a restricted snap count.

  • Giants' Olivier Vernon: Ruled out yet again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Vernon (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Coach Pat Shurmur said he's optimistic Vernon will be ready for a Thursday game against the Eagles in Week 6, but it needs to be noted that Shurmur said the same thing about Week 5 earlier this week. The Giants will have to play without their top pass rusher for a fifth time in as many games this season.
