Tavarres King: Released by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings released King (leg) off injured reserve Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

King reverted to IR when he cleared waivers on Aug. 31 and is now free to explore other opportunities, health permitting. The fourth-year receiver has 22 receptions for 240 yards and three touchdowns in his career.

Vikings' Tavarres King: Let go by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King has been waived/injured by Minnesota on Friday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

King played 15 games for the Giants the past two years, but that veteran experience didn't land him a job with the Vikings. He'll likely catch on elsewhere if his injury isn't serious. He had missed some time in the preseason with a leg injury.

Vikings' Tavarres King: Returns from leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King had one reception for 13 yards on two targets in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville.

King missed the first preseason game with a leg injury. Despite returning, he's still facing an uphill battle to win a roster spot.

Vikings' Tavarres King: Unavailable for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (leg) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener in Denver.

King missed practice this past week with an unspecified leg injury. It isn't clear how much more time he may miss.

Vikings' Tavarres King: Out with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King did not participate in Saturday's practice due to a leg injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

King's leg injury is a bit of a mystery at this point, so it's unclear just how long he'll be held out of practice. The former Giant was signed by the Vikings this offseason after finishing his 2017 campaign on IR. He's competing for a depth role at wide receiver behind Laquon Treadwell and Kendall Wright.

Vikings' Tavarres King: Lands contract with Vikes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed King to a contract Thursday.

Selected by the Broncos in the fifth round of the 2013 draft, King spent time with three other organizations before landing on the Giants' practice squad in September of 2015. He didn't reach the 53-man roster until Week 1 of the next season, which he capped off with a 41-yard touchdown in a wild-card loss to the Packers. King proceeded to make his greatest impact as a pro last year in the absence of Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall. From Week 6 onward, King hauled in 18 of 37 passes for 240 yards and three TDs. Expect the 27-year-old King to compete for slotting on the Vikings' depth chart with 2016 first-rounder Laquon Treadwell.

Giants' Tavarres King: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) was placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

King had already been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Redskins, so the move is likely just to open up a roster spot. Roger Lewis, Travis Rudolph and Hunter Sharp are expected to be utilized in three-wide formations Sunday, since Sterling Shepard (neck) and Evan Engram (ribs) are also ruled out.

Giants' Tavarres King: Out for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

King enjoyed his moment in the sun with a pair of touchdown catches in a Week 15 loss to the Eagles, but he came out of the game and hasn't practiced since. The 2013 fifth-round pick may have to compete for a roster spot next season, as he had just four career catches entering 2017 and only caught 18 of his 37 targets for 240 yards (6.5 YPT) this year. With Sterling Shepard (neck) and Evan Engram (ribs) also unavailable, the Giants are expected to deploy Roger Lewis, Travis Rudolph and Hunter Sharp in three-wide formations Sunday. Lewis could add to his streak of three straight games with double-digit targets.

Giants' Tavarres King: No-show for practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) wasn't in attendance for the Giants' practice Thursday, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

The fact that King hasn't even been around the Giants' facility to work out on the side during the team's first two practices of the week suggests he's not in line to clear the concussion protocol before Sunday's season finale against the Redskins. If King does indeed miss his second straight contest, he'll finish the campaign with 18 catches for 240 yards and three touchdowns across eight games, all of which are career highs.

Giants' Tavarres King: Missing from practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) wasn't present for the Giants' practice Wednesday, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

King's absence from practice suggests he hasn't made much notable progress in his recovery from the concussion he sustained in the Week 15 loss to the Eagles, during which the wideout recorded two catches for 70 yards and two scores. He'll need to get back on the practice field before week's end and receive clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up in the season finale Sunday against the Redskins.

Giants' Tavarres King: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Arizona, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

King caught two of three targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 34-29 loss to the Eagles, but he was unable to finish out the contest due to a concussion. His upcoming absence will allow some combination of Kalif Raymond, Travis Rudolph and Hunter Sharp to get playing time in three-wide formations alongside Sterling Shepard and Roger Lewis. Raymond was the beneficiary last week with 22 snaps on offense, though he didn't draw any targets.

Giants' Tavarres King: Absent from practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) didn't practice Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

King attracted interest in deeper leagues after hauling in a pair of touchdown receptions in the Week 15 loss to the Eagles, but the concussion he sustained during the contest could prevent him from building on that outing. With the wideout still not cleared to practice, it appears he remains in the initial phases of the NFL's concussion protocol, making it uncertain that he'll be able to suit up Sunday against the Cardinals. If King is held out, Travis Rudolph and Kalif Raymond could see increased snaps in three-wideout sets.

Giants' Tavarres King: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (concussion) didn't participate in practice Wednesday.

King's availability for Sunday's game against Arizona is now contingent on making progress through the NFL's protocol for head injuries. He'll likely need to practice either Thursday or Friday and gain clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up for the contest. If King is held out in Week 16, Travis Rudolph and Kalif Raymond would get chances to contribute behind starting wideouts Sterling Shepard and Roger Lewis.

December 17, 2017 04:20 PM
Giants' Tavarres King: Sustains concussion Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Prior to his departure, King recorded touchdown grabs of 13 yards and 57 yards on three targets. Due to the battered nature of the Giants receiving corps, he's been a regular in the offense for some time, earning at least four targets in five consecutive games prior to Sunday. His return to action will be contingent upon his progress in the protocol for head injuries.

Giants' Tavarres King: Surprise inactive Sunday vs. Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Even with No. 1 wideout Sterling Shepard (hamstring) cleared to play Sunday, it's surprising that King will be held out in Week 14, as the Georgia product wasn't listed on the team's injury report and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo gave no indication King would be excluded from the game plan. Beyond Shepard, it looks like Roger Lewis, Kalif Raymond and Darius Powe will pick up the remaining available snaps at wide receiver, though no one among that trio looks like an especially reliable fantasy option.

Giants' Tavarres King: Catches three balls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King caught three of his five targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 12-9 overtime victory against the Chiefs.

Sterling Shepard was out sick, and King and co-No. 2 WR Roger Lewis each caught three passes. King has a minor role in the team's below-average offense.

November 13, 2017 04:28 PM
Giants' Tavarres King: Sees four targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King caught two of four targets for 22 yards Sunday against the 49ers.

King and Roger Lewis are the co-No. 2 receivers opposite Sterling Shepard right now, but both are distant seconds, and also well behind tight end Evan Engram in the pecking order.

Giants' Tavarres King: Scores a touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King caught three of six targets for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Rams on Sunday.

It looks like he's surpassed Roger Lewis as the team's No. 2 wideout, but he's a distant third in the passing game behind Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram.

Giants' Tavarres King: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King caught one of three passes for seven yards during Sunday's 23-10 victory in Denver.

King was re-signed to be in the pass-catching mix now that the Giants have three wideouts on injured reserve and Sterling Shepard is nursing an ankle injury. While he did very little against the Broncos, King could see more targets when the game flow is more favorable. Either way, he's a long shot to make a major impact.

Giants' Tavarres King: Formally re-signs with New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King officially signed with the Giants on Monday.

King was cut by the Giants after he was inactive for their Week 1 loss to the Cowboys. Not only will he rejoin the squad, but it looks as though he could be a fixture on offense the rest of the season. In addition to Odell Beckham (ankle), the Giants lost fellow wideouts Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to season-ending injuries in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, forcing New York to almost entirely revamp its receiving corps. Per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, the Giants listed Sterling Shepard (ankle), Roger Lewis and King as their three starting wideouts on their unofficial depth chart heading into the Week 6 matchup with the Broncos, so King should have an opportunity right away to establish himself as a key target for quarterback Eli Manning. For that reason, King could be worth a speculative pickup in deeper fantasy formats, but he probably can't be inserted into active lineups with much confidence until he produces meaningful numbers.
