Peppers notched 91 tackles (57 solo), 2.5 sacks, 11 defended passes and one interception across 15 games with the Giants in 2020.
Peppers also had one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He set new career-best marks in terms of both stops and passes defensed. The 25-year-old is slated to play out the final year of his rookie deal under a $6.8 million contract in 2021, during which time he'll handle his usual starting role at strong safety. Peppers' tackle numbers provide him with some consistency in IDP formats, but his lack of sacks caps his fantasy upside.
Peppers (ankle) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Peppers was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but he'll suit up for the Giants' season finale with Julian Love providing depth at strong safety.
Peppers (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Peppers has been a key cog in New York's defense with 22 tackles over the past three weeks. Considering the Giants can still make the playoffs with a win over Dallas on Sunday coupled with a Washington loss to Philadelphia, the starting strong safety will likely do everything in his power to be out there on game day.
Peppers recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) and a forced fumble across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Peppers had his highest single-game tackle total of the year on Sunday, bringing his season total to 74 tackles (49 solo). He'll look to continue to rack up the tackles Sunday against the Browns.
Peppers made five tackles (three solo), a sack and two pass breakups in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Seahawks.
Peppers boasts a diversified stat line. Through 11 games, the 2017 first-round pick has recorded 61 tackles (42 solo), 2.5 sacks, 10 pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery. Peppers handles an every-down role, and he occasionally returns punts, too. He's within reach of career highs across all notable categories.
Peppers made seven tackles (six solo) and a half sack in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.
This was Peppers' fifth straight game with six or more tackles and he was impressive on special teams as well, totaling 47 yards on four punt returns. He's forged a solid floor with his tackling, leaving him on track for a career high in stops.
Peppers had 10 tackles (nine solo), two passes defensed and returned one punt for 11 yards during Monday's loss to the Buccaneers.
The 25-year-old played all but four defensive snaps Monday and reached double-digit tackles for the first time this season. Peppers doesn't offer much IDP potential with his production this season, as he had 37 total tackles and one sack in seven games.
Peppers (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Washington, Art Stapleton of USA Today reports.
Peppers played through his ankle injury last week, and he'll do so again in Week 6. He has suited up in four of the Giants' first five games and has 15 tackles, but the safety has been supplanted on punt return duties by Golden Tate after serving as the punt returner for the first two weeks, perhaps in an effort to keep Peppers healthy.
Peppers (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Art Stapleton of USA Today reports.
Peppers played through the injury last week against Cowboys, so expect him to be out there Sunday against Washington. Still, it's best to monitor his practice participation throughout the week to make sure he doesn't suffer a setback.
Peppers (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the Cowboys, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
The Giants are challenged with facing the prolific Dak Prescott and his talented array of passing-game weapons Sunday, so it's encouraging Peppers is able to take the field. The four-year veteran, who has 10 tackles on the campaign, hasn't played since logging nine snaps against the 49ers in Week 3 before departing with his injury.
Peppers (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Dan Salmone of the Giants' official site reports.
Peppers couldn't suit up for New York's loss to the Rams in Week 4, but after having resumed practicing on a limited basis, it looks like he has a fair shot to play in Dallas. If Peppers is able to take the field without any restrictions Sunday, he should slot back into his usual every-down role at strong safety.
Peppers (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Julian Love (knee) is listed as questionable but is expected to play, so the Giants should at least have one of their two starting safeties available. Peppers injured his ankle after playing only nine defensive snaps in last week's loss to the 49ers, leaving Love and Logan Ryan as the safety duo. Peppers also handles punt returns, but the Giants didn't need a replacement last week because the Niners finished every drive with a touchdown or field-goal attempt. Starting wide receivers Golden Tate and Darius Slayton are the other guys listed as punt returners on the depth chart on the team website.
Peppers (ankle) did not participate during Thursday's practice session, Dan Salomone of Giants.com reports.
There was promising news earlier in the week when Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reported that Peppers would not require surgery after suffering an in-game injury against the 49ers. His status for a Week 4 road trip to Los Angeles seems cloudy at the moment, however, as he's logged consecutive DNPs between Wednesday and Thursday. If Peppers is unable to play in a matchup against the Rams' top-10 pass offense, 31-year-old Nate Ebner would likely see an increase in usage.
Peppers' (ankle) injury won't require surgery, and he could return as soon as Sunday's game against the Rams depending on how his ankle responds in practice this week, Jordan Raanan of ESPN NFL Nation reports.
Peppers had tests done on his low-ankle sprain Monday, and the results were encouraging. The play-making safety should be considered questionable for Sunday's trip to Los Angeles at this time, though we should get a better idea of his status based on Peppers' practice participation throughout the week.
Peppers (ankle) doesn't have an official timetable for his return and is considered day-to-day, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
The 24-year-old sustained a low-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and it remains to be seen if he'll miss any games. Peppers' status for Week 4 should receive some clarity once the Giants return to practice later in the week.
Peppers suffered a low-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and will have further tests to establish a timeline for his return, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
It's encouraging that Peppers avoided the dreaded high-ankle sprain, but he still could miss a game or two depending on what the tests reveal. The Michigan product has looked good as a punt returner this season, and he's recorded 10 tackles as a safety. If he's forced to miss any time, Golden Tate will likely return punts while Nate Ebner logs more snaps at safety.
Peppers is in the locker room after suffering an ankle injury during Sunday's game against San Francisco, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Peppers appeared to have suffered the injury on a field goal attempt by the 49ers, as he was rolled up on his ankle. As long as Peppers is sidelined, look for Nate Ebner to take over as the team's strong safety.
Peppers (back) is healthy and looking to break out in 2020, John Schmeelk of the Giants' official website reports.
Peppers appears to be fully recovered from a traverse process fracture in his back, which kept him out of the final five games of last season. Prior to the injury, he nearly set a career high in tackles (76) and pass breakups (five). The 24-year-old is entering his fourth season, and he has already had his fifth-year option picked up for 2021.
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.
Peppers (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com 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.
