Player Outlook

Slayton saw both his involvement in the offense and his production wane in 2021, and there's little hope he'll bounce back. If Sterling Shepard starts the year on the PUP list and Wan'Dale Robinson struggles in camp, Slayton is probably the No. 3 receiver for the Giants, and even then he'd only be worth a very late draft pick. Slayton is a fine stash in deeper Dynasty leagues, but he can likely be ignored in redraft barring a surprising camp.

Player News
  • Slayton brought in two of three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' 22-7 loss to Washington on Sunday. Slayton returned from a shoulder injury and was at least able to record his first touchdown grab since Week 2 -- small consolation for an utterly forgettable season for the third-year speedster. Slayton scuffled with both injury and poor quarterback play to post an ugly 26-339-2 line across 13 games, a significant downturn after a solid first pair of pro seasons. Slayton will hope the return to health of Daniel Jones (IR-neck) and a potential new coaching staff will help lead to a much more productive offensive environment in 2022.

  • Slayton (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Washington, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. The Giants' lack of a passing game remains more of an issue than Slayton's shoulder injury or recent stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though it is possible his playing time is affected. The Giants are starting Jake Fromm at quarterback to close out the season.

  • Slayton (shoulder/ramp up) was limited at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. The Giants placed Slayton (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list last Thursday, which caused him to be unavailable for a Week 17 game in Chicago. Upon his activation Wednesday, he was listed with both a shoulder injury and also the COVID-19 ramp up that has been customary of players returning to the active roster. Ultimately, Friday's practice report may clear up Slayton's status ahead of Sunday's game against Washington.

  • New York activated Slayton (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, MIchael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports. Slayton was then listed as a limited participant on the Giants' estimated practice report due to a shoulder injury, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger. Slayton's return from the list and participation in practice -- albeit in a limited capacity -- sets the stage for him to play Sunday against Washington after missing the Week 17 blowout loss at Chicago. He'll likely be a starter and get plenty of snaps if his conditioning is OK, but there's not much upside for the New York passing game with Jake Fromm likely starting at quarterback.

  • Slayton (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game in Chicago after the Giants didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for week 17 roster moves, Patricia Traina of SI.com reports. The Giants elevated wide receiver Alex Bachman from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement for Slayton, who tested positive for the virus Wednesday. In addition to Slayton, New York will be without Kadarius Toney (shoulder), Sterling Shepard (Achilles), John Ross (knee) and Collin Johnson (hamstring), leaving the team woefully thin at receiver beyond No. 1 option Kenny Golladay. Bachman, Pharoh Cooper and David Sills will be called upon to fill snaps alongside Golladay.
