Slayton caught two of four targets for 23 yards Thursday in the Giants' 22-21 loss to the Eagles. Slayton's practice activity heading into the contest was limited to due a foot issue, but being shadowed by top Eagles corner Darius Slay for most of the night likely hindered the wideout's production more than the injury. In addition, the return of Sterling Shepard (toe) from a four-game layoff left fewer looks available for Slayton, who had averaged 7.2 targets per game during the former's absence. Slayton's fantasy outlook won't be any rosier in the Giants' next game on Nov. 2, when he'll be facing off against a Buccaneers defense that has graded out as the NFL's toughest versus receivers this season, per Pro Football Focus.
Slayton (foot) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's game at Philadelphia, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. For the second week in a row, Slayton's practice reps were capped due to a foot injury, but the issue won't affect his ability to suit up for game day. Facing Washington last week, Slayton managed a typical workload (83 percent of the offensive snaps) while totaling two catches (on four targets) for 41 yards and a touchdown.
Slayton (foot) was listed as limited on Tuesday's practice estimate, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Slayton maintained his listing in the first two days of the week, but the Giants actually held a walkthrough Tuesday, which may indicate the second-year wideout is attempting to gut out a foot injury. He played through the concern this past Sunday against Washington, tallying a season-low two catches for 41 yards. Fortunately for Slayton, he salvaged his stat line with a 23-yard TD. He'll attempt to bump from LP to FP on Wednesday, at which point the Giants will give an indication of his availability for Thursday's game in Philadelphia.
Slayton (foot) is listed as limited on Monday's estimated injury report, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Slayton was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's win over Washington, but he managed to play through his foot injury while corralling two of four targets for 41 yards and a score. The second-year pro did see his lowest snap share (83 percent) and target count of the season, so it's clear that the foot issue limited him, which makes it encouraging to see the Giants expect he would've practiced to begin this week. Slayton will work to upgrade to full practice activity ahead of Thursday's contest in Philadelphia.
Slayton (foot) is listed as active Sunday against Washington, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. After a week in which he was listed as limited on every practice report due to a foot injury, Slayton is upholding coach Joe Judge's expectation from Friday that the second-year wide receiver will play Week 6. On the season, Slayton has taken full advantage of his 40 targets through five games, putting up a respectable 23-365-2 line. He'll look to add to it versus a Washington defense that has allowed 8.95 YPT (12th-highest figure in the NFL) to wide receivers in 2020.
