  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Undergoes thumb surgery

    Slayton said Thursday that he had surgery on his right thumb after the conclusion of the regular season but should be ready to play "by the time it matters," Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

    Slayton posted to his personal X account Jan. 10 implying that he dealt with a right hand injury throughout the campaign, and it appears that his thumb was the source of the issue. Despite the injury, the fifth-year wideout played in every game for the Giants this season, leading the club with 79 targets (of which he caught 60) and 770 receiving yards while hauling in four touchdowns. If his thumb heals as expected, and depending on what changes the Giants make in the offseason, Slayton could head into the 2024 campaign as the team's No. 1 wideout.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Hauls in TD against Philly

    Slayton caught five of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Eagles.

    The wideout tied Wan'Dale Robinson and Darren Waller for the team lead with five grabs each, but Slayton was the only Giants receiver to get into the end zone, connecting with Tyrod Taylor on a 19-yard score late in the second quarter. Slayton tied his career high with 50 catches in 2023 and set a new personal best with 770 receiving yards, but the Giants could do a lot of housecleaning on the roster in the offseason, and it's not clear if the 26-year-old is part of their future plans.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Catches 80-yard TD in loss

    Slayton caught four of six targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-25 loss to the Rams.

    Slayton got free for his second long touchdown reception in the last two games, and this one was even longer than his 69-yard score against the Eagles in Week 16. The big-play threat had only one touchdown all season prior to this hot stretch, but Slayton will have a nice opportunity to keep the late-season surge going in Week 18 when the Giants face the struggling Eagles defense again.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Posts best line of season

    Slayton recorded three receptions (on three targets) for 90 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 33-25 loss to the Eagles.

    Slayton posted his highest yardage total of the season and continued his upward tick in production since Week 11. The majority of his 90 yards came on a 69-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter on a deep throw down the left sideline from Tyrod Taylor. Overall, Slayton has topped 60 receiving yards in three of his last five games and has shown the ability to produce with both Taylor and Tommy DeVito under center.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Leading receiver for losing side

    Slayton had four receptions on eight targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 24-6 loss to New Orleans.

    Slayton finished as the Giants' leading receiver on a low-volume passing day, producing modest fantasy results in the process. The 63 yards represented the No. 1 wideout's third-highest yardage total through 14 games this season, highlighting how anemic the Giants' offense has been in 2023. Slayton should continue to operate as New York's top receiver against Philadelphia next Monday, but his fantasy appeal remains limited to those in deeper formats.

  • Giants' Darius Slayton: Quiet performance in Week 14

    Slayton finished Monday's 24-22 win against Green Bay with two catches on two targets for 14 yards.

    Slayton had his second straight subpar performance as a pass catcher, equaling the number of receptions he produced in Week 12 against New England and finishing with two fewer yards. The veteran wideout appeared to have a breakout with four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 versus Washington, but he hasn't been able to follow that up with significant production. Slayton has been plagued by inconsistency throughout the campaign, so it's hard to trust him in fantasy lineups.
