Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Big Blue picks up fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants exercised Peppers' (back) fifth-year option for 2021 Wednesday.

The 24-year-old missed the final five games of the season after suffering a transverse process fracture in his back, but he still almost set career highs in tackles (76) and pass breakups (five) to go along with three forced fumbles. Peppers was acquired from the Browns in March 2019 and is New York's best playmaker in the secondary, so it was fully expected that the team would pick up his option.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The 24-year-old's season ultimately ends just shy of him hitting a number of career highs, as the safety was easily on pace to surpass his 2018 tackle and interception totals despite playing in just 11 games. A key member of the team's underwhelming defense, expect Peppers to be a mainstay as the Giants continue to add and develop their young secondary.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Season could be over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur said Friday it's possible Peppers (back) is placed on injured reserve, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old was expected to miss up to three weeks after suffering the transverse process fracture Week 12 against the Bears, but it appears the team could hold him out the remainder of the season. Peppers has yet to practice since suffering the injury. Julian Love should continue to fill in at strong safety for the Giants.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (back) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Peppers is nursing a transverse process fracture, the severity of which kept him from suiting up against the Packers in Week 13. The strong safety and punt returner will have two more opportunities to up his level of activity ahead of Monday's divisional tilt against the Eagles, but he's currently trending in the wrong direction.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Won't face Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (back) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Peppers is in danger of missing multiple weeks due to a transverse process fracture, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. Michael Thomas stands to take over at strong safety in Peppers' stead while Darius Slayton will handle punt returns with Golden Tate (concussion) also sidelined.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (back) was not spotted at Wednesday's practice, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Peppers is nursing a transverse process fracture sustained during Sunday's loss to the Bears. He suffered the injury during a kickoff return at the end of the second quarter. The 24-year-old appears to be in danger of missing up to three weeks, during which time Michael Thomas will likely take over at strong safety. The Giants will also rely on Golden Tate (concussion) and Darius Slayton to handle punt returns in Peppers' stead.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (hip) suffered a transverse process fracture during Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Bears.

Peppers was forced to exit Sunday's contest during the end of the second quarter. His recovery timetable could range between one and three weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Michael Thomas stands to play an increased role in New York's secondary as long as Peppers remains sidelined, while Golden Tate (concussion) and Darius Slayton field punt returns.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: MRI on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (hip) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (hip) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It's unclear how Peppers suffered the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the third quarter. Peppers will be a big loss to the defense, and as long as he's sidelined, Michael Thomas would be in line to see the strong safety reps.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Generates six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers tallied six tackles -- 1.5 for a loss -- and a pass breakup in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

Peppers played all 65 defensive snaps as he normally does. The third-year pro's only eight tackles shy of the career-high 79 stops he posted last season with the Browns, and he's on pace to hit triple-digits in the category. He'll enjoy a week of rest before taking on the Bears in Week 12.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Notches season-high 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers racked up a season-high 12 tackles (seven solo), one pass defensed and a forced fumble in Monday's 37-18 win over the Giants.

Peppers has posted double-digit tackles in two of the Giants' last four games, and he's also forced a trio of fumbles over the team's past five contests. He'll look to maintain the momentum on the road in Week 10 against a struggling Jets offense.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Eight tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers recorded eight tackles (four solo) during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Peppers has consistently produced tackles through seven contests this season. His every-down role in the Giants' secondary provides him with a safe floor in IDP formats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Takes pick back in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers recorded six total tackles, two pass breakups and an interception returned for a touchdown in Sunday's win over Washington.

Peppers' pick-six came in the third quarter when he jumped a receiver's route and ran 32 yards into the end zone. The former Brown has been on the field for all but one of the defense's plays this season and has racked up 27 total tackles, three pass breakups, an interception and a score through the first four games.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Helps Giants get first win of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers logged eight tackles (six solo) in Sunday's dramatic win over the Buccaneers.

Peppers played 77 defensive snaps in the win and continues to look like the real deal on the back end of New York's defense. On top of his eight tackles, Peppers also finished the game with one pass defended. If he can find a way to snag a few more interceptions, the 23-year-old's value in IDP formats will increase exponentially.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Strong effort not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Peppers saw all but one defensive snap in the game, including logging seven punt return yards on special teams. The 2017 first-round pick was one of the lone bright spots in a tough game, as he didn't allow a catch on passes he defended. Peppers and the Giants will return home to face the Bills for Week 2, who are coming off three turnovers Sunday against the Jets.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Cramping up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers left Sunday's game against the Cowboys with cramps but is expected to return, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Peppers had to be helped off the field due to injury, but, as evidenced by this news, is just dealing with cramps. Before he officially returns, however, Michael Thomas should continue to fill in at the strong safety position.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Impressing coaching staff early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Defensive coordinator James Bettcher suggested Wednesday that Peppers could fill multiple roles this season, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. "Jabrill is a highly ascending player in this league. A guy that has flexibility to play strong safety, he can come down into the box and play some money [hybrid linebacker]."

Peppers was included in the blockbuster trade in March that sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns. Though his production lagged during his two seasons in Cleveland, the Giants believe that Peppers' versatility and athleticism should help him stick on the field regardless of the matchup. Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey envisions Peppers filling a similarly vital role in the third phase of the game, where the Michigan product will likely be a factor on both kickoff and punt returns.

Giants' Jabrill Peppers: Packaged in deal for OBJ
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns traded Peppers to the Giants along with a 2019 first-round pick and a 2019 third-round pick in exchange for Odell Beckham on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It was a blockbuster trade since Beckham is one of the top wide receivers in the league, but Peppers fills a much-needed vacancy at safety for the Giants after Landon Collins agreed to a deal with the Redskins. Derrick Kindred is the favorite to fill into the starting role vacated by Peppers on the Browns defense. Peppers had a solid sophomore season in 2018, compiling 79 tackles, a sack, five pass breakups and an interception. He has two years remaining on his rookie contract.

Browns' Jabrill Peppers: Active Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers (neck) is active Sunday against the Bengals.

Peppers saw his status come into question after missing Thursday's practice due to a neck injury, but was able to return to action Friday on a limited basis. The second-year defensive back hasn't missed a game all year, and Sunday will be no different for the team's fourth-leading tackler.
