Giants' Darius Slayton: Second two-TD game in three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught 10 of 14 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

Slayton scored touchdowns of five and 39 yards in the second quarter, delivering his second two-score performance in the past three weeks. Sandwiched in between those performances is a one-catch, six-yard dud, as the 22-year-old wide receiver is still striving to find week-to-week consistency. Slayton makes for an intriguing pickup moving forward given the upside he's displayed recently, but his role could shrink dramatically if Sterling Shepard (concussion) is ready to make his return following the Giants' Week 11 bye.

Giants' Darius Slayton: High snap count, minimal production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught one of four targets for six yards in Monday's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys.

Slayton started the contest and played 67 of 72 offensive snaps (93 percent), but he saw his fewest receptions and yards of the season. This dud comes after the rookie fifth-round pick posted two touchdowns in Week 8 against the Lions. Slayton didn't draw much attention despite Daniel Jones heaving 41 passes, but he has a good chance to turn it around against the Jets' suspect secondary in Week 10.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Getting another start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton will start Monday versus the Cowboys, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Sterling Shepard seemed to be closing in on getting through the concussion protocol for the second time this season, only to have a recurrence of symptoms over the weekend. His absence has allowed Slayton to retain an increased role, which he's utilized to put up 16 catches (on 27 targets) for 267 yards and three touchdowns over the last six games. Slayton may have a difficult time producing against a Cowboys defense that has yielded 7.7 yards per target and just three TDs to wide receivers in seven contests this season.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Catches two TD passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught two of five targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-26 loss to the Lions.

Slayton made the most of his two grabs, which capped off back-to-back touchdown drives in the second quarter. He had totaled five catches for 60 yards over the previous two games, so this efficient effort was likely a pleasant surprise to fantasy owners who rolled the dice on him this week. Despite Slayton's performance in this one, the Giants have several other options ahead of him on offense, which far from guarantees him similar results in next Monday's home matchup against the Cowboys.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Catches two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught both of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Daniel Jones didn't have much time to throw, and when he did it was mostly short balls to Golden Tate. Sterling Shepard could be back soon, too, but Slayton should retain a small role as a deep threat.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Getting second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton will start alongside Golden Tate at wide receiver in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

The rookie will crack the lineup for the second straight contest with Sterling Shepard inactive again after having yet to clear the concussion protocol. In the Giants' 35-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 6, Slayton was on the field for all but one of New York's offensive snaps, finishing with three catches for 32 yards on eight targets.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Makes three grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton secured three of his eight targets for 32 yards in the Giants' 35-14 loss to the Patriots on Thursday.

The rookie couldn't quite replicate his 4-62-1 line from Week 5, but in a Giants passing attack that was missing both Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee), he checked in a distant second to Golden Tate in receiving yards. Slayton has seen at least five targets in three of the first four games he's suited up for, and with his above-average speed, he retains upside as a downfield threat any time he's on the field. He'll look to parlay his skills into more production when he faces an inconsistent Cardinals secondary in Week 7.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Leads team in receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught four of five targets for 62 yards during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Vikings.

Although Slayton finished fourth on the team in targets, he led it in receiving yardage and yards per catch (15.5). The majority of his production came on a 35-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter, which was New York's only play longer than 20 yards for the game. Slayton has certainly flashed his ability to generate big plays early on in his NFL career, but he'll find the going tough in Thursday's road matchup against a surging Patriots defense.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Quiet day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught both his targets for 13 yards Sunday against the Redskins.

Slayton made a splash last week against the Bucs, but with Golden Tate returning next week, Slayton's share of the team's passing game is likely to remain small.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Big game in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton caught three of five targets for 83 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

The speedy fifth-round draft pick could establish himself as the team's deep threat with Corey Coleman (knee) on IR, though Golden Tate's return in two weeks will cut into his overall target share.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Making debut Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) will be active for the first time in his NFL career Week 3 against the Buccaneers with Cody Laitmer (concussion) out of action, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Slayton had already shed his injury designation this past week, finally overcoming the hamstring issue that had plagued him since July. The rookie fifth-round pick will be one of several pass-catching options -- Russell Shepard, TJ Jones and Cody Core being the others -- available to fellow rookie Daniel Jones behind starters Sterling Shepard and Bennie Fowler in Jones' first NFL start.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Expected to make NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) is on track to make his NFL debut Sunday in Tampa Bay, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Bothered by a hamstring injury since July, the rookie fifth-round pick missed the entire preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season. There's still some chance Slayton is a healthy scratch, but he doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Week 3. With Bennie Fowler (hamstring) listed as questionable and both Cody Latimer (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension) out, the Giants may be left with Slayton, Russell Shepard, TJ Jones and Cody Core behind No. 1 receiver Sterling Shepard.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Limited in practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Slayton has logged two straight limited practice sessions. The rookie fifth-round pick didn't practice at all during the first two weeks of the season, so his partial participation is a step in the right direction. Slayton is making progress towards his NFL debut, though it remains to be seen whether he'll be available Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Gets on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Slayton didn't practice at all leading up to the first two games, so this is a positive step toward his NFL debut. If he's able to get healthy for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Slayton could have an immediate role in the offense since Sterling Shepherd and Cody Latimer both have concussions, although Shepherd also was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Set to practice, nearing debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Slayton (hamstring) will practice this week and is close to making his NFL debut, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Slayton is managing a lingering hamstring injury, one which has plagued him since July and caused him to miss two straight regular-season contests. The extent of his participation in practice this week should shed some light on Slayton's chances of suiting up Sunday versus the Buccaneers. If Slayton is able to go Week 3, he could be primed for a notable role on offense, with fellow wideouts Sterling Shepard and Cody Latimer both nursing concussions.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Not available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Slayton has been dealing with the hamstring injury since July and will miss his second straight contest. Cody Core and TJ Jones will serve as depth receivers for the Giants, though they could see increased roles with Sterling Shepard (concussion) ruled out and Cody Latimer (calf) questionable.

September 11, 2019 04:16 PM
Giants' Darius Slayton: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Slayton continues to manage his recovery from a hamstring injury that's ailed him since July. Cody Core will slot into the No. 5 receiver job as long as Slayton is unable to go.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Dallas.

Slayton has been battling the hamstring injury since July and his absence will extend into the regular season. Cody Core should serve as the Giants' No. 5 wideout in his absence.

September 5, 2019 06:08 PM
Giants' Darius Slayton: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.

Slayton has been dealing with a lingering hamstring injury since July and is not expected to suit up Sunday versus the Cowboys. A timetable for the rookie fifth-round pick's recovery remains undisclosed, and Cody Core will slot in as the team's No. 5 receiver until Slayton gets healthy.

Giants' Darius Slayton: Will sit out season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slayton (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Slayton sat out of Wednesday's practice, and he's already been deemed out. The rookie fifth-round pick has been dealing with this hamstring injury since July and he tweaked it a week ago, so it's understandable that the Giants are proceeding with caution. This hurts the team's depth, and recent waiver-wire claim Cody Core will work as the No. 5 wideout now.
