Pierre-Paul (finger) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Pierre-Paul's injury restricted him to just one limited practice this week, but after warming up Sunday without any apparent issues, he'll receive clearance to play. It wouldn't be surprising if the 2-10 Giants limited Pierre-Paul's snap count more than usual as a result of the injury, however, so the defensive end may not represent an appealing option this week in IDP formats.
With that in mind, Graziano is labeling Pierre-Paul's Week 14 status as a "50/50 situation," and one that isn't likely to gain clarity until the Giants release their inactives 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. EST kickoff. Given the 2-10 Giants' place in the standings, Pierre-Paul could see his snap count limited if he plays Sunday and would likely wear a club, which may be enough reason for those who have relied on him in IDP settings this season to look elsewhere for assistance this week.
Pierre-Paul (finger) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but says he will play and may wear a club, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Pierre-Paul's finger injury limited his practice reps this week, but the Giants will probably let the defensive end play through the pain Sunday if he isn't hurting too much during pregame warmups. Through 12 games this season, Pierre-Paul has compiled 6.5 sacks to go with 54 tackles and two forced fumbles.
Pierre-Paul posted five tackles (three solo) and two sacks against the Redskins on Thursday.
Thorough 11 games, Pierre-Paul has 6.5 sacks, but he has failed to record a sack in seven matchups this season. His fantasy value isn't completely dependent on his sack count, though, as he has 51 tackles (37 solo) thus far. With a matchup against the Raiders in Week 13, Pierre-Paul will try getting to QB Derek Carr, who ranks fifth in the league in sack percentage (3.7 percent).
Pierre-Paul (shoulder) will play Sunday against the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Pierre-Paul has been inconsistent this season, but his average of 4.5 tackles per game is good for a defensive end. Still, fantasy owners would likely appreciate a surge of sacks from Pierre-Paul, and he'll have a good opportunity to do that against 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard, who has been sacked on nine percent of his dropbacks, ranking 28th in the league.
