Player Outlook
In Weeks 4 and 5 last year, Toney combined for 16 catches and 267 yards. In his other eight games he caught 23 passes for 153 yards. Toney's upside is what makes him draftable at all, but his injury history (he's been banged up already this offseason) and the question marks surrounding this offense means you shouldn't be drafting Toney before Round 10. Toney is more valuable in Dynasty leagues, where he's a WR4 with the upside to jump into the top 20 this season.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Looks good, won't play

    Toney (leg) is "moving well" at practice Friday but won't play in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Toney ran routes at full speed Friday and might be healthy enough to play if the Giants had a regular-season game this weekend. He's thus on track for Week 1 at Tennessee, despite being in and out of practice throughout training camp after having minor surgery in the offseason. His recent limitation in practice doesn't appear related to the knee, with reports suggesting it's likely a hamstring or groin injury.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Handling individual drills

    Toney (leg) is participating in individual drills during Tuesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Toney is also participating in some positional drills Tuesday. The second-year wideout isn't expected to fully practice this week after having sat out the Giants' first preseason contest, but it's encouraging to see him participating in some capacity. New York appears likely to take a cautious approach with Toney's health, so he may not suit up for Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Not expected to practice this week

    Coach Brian Daboll said Sunday that Toney (hamstring) isn't expected to practice this week, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Toney reportedly suffered the injury during a practice last week and was ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots. It appears the Giants will remain cautious with the 2021 first-round pick and keep him sidelined for next Sunday's exhibition game against the Bengals, though the report does note that Toney will have an outside shot at returning to practice before the week is over.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Not slated to play Thursday

    Toney (hamstring) is not in line to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. The report notes that Toney appeared to tweak his leg or knee in Tuesday's practice, and the wideout thus is on track to miss the Giants' exhibition opener. His next chance to see game action will arrive Sunday, Aug. 21 against the Bengals.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: May be bothered by hamstring

    Toney appeared to be favoring his hamstring during practice Tuesday, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Slater notes that Toney was limited in practice for the fourth time (out of 11) during training camp, but in this instance, the reduced workload may not have been planned in advance. While neither player nor team has mentioned an injury, it's possible Toney won't be available for Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots. Reports on Toney out of Giants camp have been mixed, and his stock may be trending downward, as the 2021 first-round pick reportedly had a bunch of drops and mistakes in a full practice Monday. He missed seven games as a rookie and had arthroscopic surgery this offseason.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Remains limited at training camp

    Toney (knee) was held out of 11-on-11 drills during Sunday's practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Per Leonard, Toney has been held out of full-team drills three times over the Giants' first nine training camp practices. While the issue doesn't appear too serious, it's certainly something to monitor heading into the regular season. Toney had an injury-riddled rookie campaign, but there are high hopes for the 2021 first-round pick in Year 2 under new head coach Brian Daboll.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Could add versatility

    Giants head coach Brian Daboll indicated Monday that he has approached Toney about adding positional flexibility this season, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Daboll didn't specify what type of flexibility he was referring to, but Toney was spotted throwing a pass during Friday's practice and was a quarterback during high school. It's feasible that he could see some snaps as a wildcat quarterback this season, though his fantasy value is clearly tied to his performance as a wide receiver. On that note, Toney has been gaining some popularity as a late-round draft target in anticipation of how he could grow in a new, potentially dynamic offense under Daboll.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Good to go for training camp

    Giants head coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that Toney (knee) is a full go for training camp practices, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Daboll also said that modifications to Toney's workload will be made "if necessary," per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. After Toney's injury-riddled rookie campaign, it might make more sense for the team to closely monitor his practice activity and attempt to take a precautionary approach should anything pop up. Still, after Toney was limited during minicamp, it's encouraging to see him back on the field and ready to handle first-team reps alongside Kenny Golladay. With Sterling Shepard (Achilles) on the PUP list, Wan'Dale Robinson and Darius Slayton may also see increased reps.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Avoids PUP list

    Toney (knee) hasn't been placed on the PUP list to start training camp, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. The Giants haven't commented on expectations for his participation, but this suggests Toney will practice in some capacity the first week of training camp. He wore a non-contact jersey during June minicamp, after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee earlier this offseason. Fellow Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (Achilles) is one of the players on the PUP list to start camp, leaving Kenny Golladay, Toney, Wan'Dale Robinson and Darius Slayton as the top candidates for first-team snaps.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Limited to start minicamp

    Toney (knee) will continue to garner a red/non-contact jersey during mandatory minicamp, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Toney underwent minor knee surgery earlier this offseason and wasn't able to participate in the team's OTAs. However, the arthroscopic surgery doesn't appear to be significant, and the 2021 first-round pick should be back to 100 percent by training camp. Toney finished his rookie campaign with 39 receptions on 57 targets for 420 yards, but he was sidelined for six of the final seven games of the season due to numerous injuries.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Reps being limited

    Coach Brian Daboll said Thursday that Toney (undisclosed) and teammate Kenny Golladay (undisclosed) are participating in OTAs while wearing red jerseys at practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Toney was limited to 10 appearances as a rookie due to health issues, so while there's not yet any reason to consider his current undisclosed injury serious, it will be worth keeping an eye on his status. While Toney's practice reps remain dialed down, the primary beneficiary of increased opportunities could be rookie second-round pick Wan'Dale Robinson, who appears to be competing for a key role in the slot. With Golladay and Sterling Shepard (Achilles) also dealing with injury issues, fourth-year pro Darius Slayton could also see an uptick in work at practice.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Seemingly staying in New York

    Giants head coach Brian Daboll said Tuesday that he looks forward to working with Toney, who was the subject of trade rumors prior to the 2022 NFL Draft, Ryan Chichester of WFAN Sports Radio 66 New York reports. New York added second-round pick Wan'Dale Robinson to an already-deep wideout room, but they'll likely need help even if Toney has a big Year 2, considering Darius Slayton is in a contract year and coming off a poor season while Sterling Shepard works his way back from an Achilles tear. Meanwhile, Kenny Golladay missed 11 games for the Lions in 2020 and then managed only 521 yards in 14 games in his first season with the Giants. It's a situation that could allow Toney to emerge as Daniel Jones' favorite receiver, especially after recent reports suggested that the Giants listened to trade offers but never actually shopped the young wideout. Toney showed up to the voluntary offseason program a few days before the draft, after his absence early on created some headlines and perhaps fueled the trade rumors.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Joins voluntary workouts

    Toney (shoulder) was present for Monday's voluntary workout, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Per Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, it's unclear if that was the original plan for Toney (who wasn't present for start of the team's voluntary offseason workouts last week), or if recent trade rumors may have factored into the wideout's decision to join in. With that in mind, Vacchiano adds that he's been told the Giants weren't actively shopping the 2021 first-rounder. Instead, Vacchiano indicates that the team has been willing to listen if other franchises called about the 23-year-old, though that approach applies to other players as well. In any case, Vacchiano notes that it doesn't appear that New York is inclined to sell low on a player that was drafted 20th overall just last year.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Passing on voluntary program

    Head coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that Toney (shoulder) isn't present for the start of voluntary offseason workouts, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Toney, who ended his rookie season dealing with a shoulder injury, isn't yet participating in team activities this offseason. Of course, it's only April, and there's still plenty of time for the 2021 first-round pick to get in some on-field work before Week 1, but his decision to abstain from early voluntary activities is notable. Perhaps most significantly, as Daboll notes, is the fact that Toney has yet to receive a copy of the new offensive playbook.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Injury-plagued rookie year

    Toney (shoulder) finished an injury-plagued rookie season with 39 catches on 57 targets for 420 yards and no touchdowns. Toney had just about every issue imaginable as a rookie with hamstring, ankle, thumb, quad, oblique and shoulder injuries as well as two stints on the COVID-19 list. But on the rare occasion he was healthy, he was electric, breaking tackles and showing rare quickness and burst. His Week 5 game against the Cowboys (13-10-189-0) showed his upside if the Giants ever get competent QB play, and Toney himself stays on the field.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Out for Week 18

    Toney (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 18 matchup with Washington, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Toney showed flashes of brilliance but mostly spent his rookie campaign playing through or rehabbing injuries, primarily to his lower body until the recent shoulder issue cost him the final two weeks. Toney finishes with a 39-420-0 receiving line on 57 targets in 10 games, with the highlight being his 10-catch, 189-yard performance in a Week 5 loss at Dallas. That came on the heels of a 78-yard game the week before, but Toney never cleared even 50 yards again, making only five more appearances (Weeks 6, 8-9, 11, 16) after the memorable Week 5 outing. While he may stand a chance to escape the injury-plagued season without surgery, Toney faces an uncertain future in terms of QB play and coaching. Granted, he might be in 'any change is good change' territory, given that the Giants have fielded a bottom five passing offense by nearly any measure this year.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Again working on side at practice

    Toney (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Toney took part in the Giants' team stretch during the open portion of Thursday's practice, but he didn't join his healthy teammates for drills and focused on rehab work. The Giants haven't formally ruled Toney out for Sunday's game against Washington, but the rookie wideout's lack of practice reps of late seemingly puts him on track for another absence. Toney has already sat out five of the Giants' last six games.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Gets in limited practice

    Toney (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Toney is being listed as a non-participant for the first time since picking up a shoulder issue Week 16, though he was spotted working out with a Giants trainer last Friday before being ruled out ahead of the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Bears. The rookie first-round pick may be setting himself up for a return Sunday against Washington, but he likely will need to string together a few practices this week before the team clears him for his 11th appearance of the campaign.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Picks up new injury

    Toney missed Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Toney has mostly looked good when healthy this season but now adds a shoulder to his growing list of rookie-year injuries and ailments. He had previously been listed on Giants reports with hamstring, ankle, thumb, quad, oblique and shoulder injuries, in addition to two stints on the COVID-19 list. Toney led the Giants with nine targets (finishing with four catches for 28 yards) in last Sunday's loss to Philadelphia, logging 51 percent of snaps in his first appearance since Week 11. He could be similarly busy this Sunday in Chicago if his shoulder injury isn't serious, but the Giants' passing game has been horribly inefficient under backups quarterbacks Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm.

  • Giants' Kadarius Toney: Four grabs in return

    Toney (oblique) secured four of nine targets for 28 yards and recovered a fumble in the Giants' 34-10 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. The rookie jumped back into action for the first time since Week 11 and was busy, pacing the team in receiving yards and targets while sharing the lead in receptions. However, all of those were rather empty accomplishments for Toney, considering the Giants mustered all of 108 passing yards on the afternoon. Toney has indisputable upside in his own right, but the prospect of playing out the final two regular-season games with Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm as his quarterbacks certainly dampens his short-term outlook.
