  • Giants' Devonta Freeman: Projected 30 percent snaps

    Fox's Jay Glazer said on their pregame show that Freeman will get about 30 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps in Week 3.

    Our expectations for this week were pretty modest, and this confirms that. It looks as if there will be a three-headed monster at running back this week, with Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis also receiving significant workloads.

  • Giants' Wayne Gallman: May get first post-Barkley start

    Gallman lined up with the Giants' first-team offense during warmups, indicating he may be the team's starting running back Sunday versus the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    In the wake of Saquon Barkley's season-ending torn ACL, the Giants backfield likely will be a committee for the foreseeable future, but it appears Gallman will get the first chance to take the first snap between him, Dion Lewis and newcomer Devonta Freeman. Clearly, Freeman has the most visible resume among the trio, but after just five days with the team he doesn't seem likely to be a huge part of the game plan. That leaves Gallman and Lewis to vie for early down and pass-catching reps, meaning the more well-rounded Lewis could earn more touches, even if Gallman gets the start.

  • Giants' Isaac Yiadom: Likely new starter

    Yiadom is warming up with the first-team defense ahead of Sunday's contest against San Francisco, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Adding in the fact that Yiadom outsnapped Corey Ballentine in Week 2, all signs point to Yiadom as the starting corner opposite James Bradberry going forward. Although Yiadom finished with just two solo tackles in last week's loss to Chicago, this news grants a slight uptick for the 24-year-old's IDP value as long as he's in a starting role.

  • Giants' Devonta Freeman: Suiting up for debut in New York

    Freeman is listed as active Sunday against the 49ers, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

    The Giants are facing life without Saquon Barkley due to his Week 2 ACL tear, but it's unclear exactly how the backfield will be pieced together in his absence. The team brought in Freeman to bolster the group after putting up at least 1,000 yards from scrimmage in four of his six seasons with the Falcons. That said, he's been a member of the Giants for less than a week, meaning incumbents Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman seem like better bets to see high-leverage situations. On a positive note, though, Freeman should get a chance to mix into the offense at some point Sunday.

  • Giants' Adrian Colbert: Officially ruled out Sunday

    Colbert (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Colbert was considered doubtful, so it's not surprising that he'll miss a second straight game. Nate Ebner played a handful of defensive snaps in Colbert's place in Week 2 and will likely follow a similar pattern Sunday.

  • Giants' Brandon Williams: Unavailable versus 49ers

    Williams (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Williams has only played on special teams this season, so his absence shouldn't affect the team's passing defense. He'll look to get back on the field in Week 4's matchup versus the Rams.

  • Giants' Johnny Holton: Elevates from practice squad

    The Giants promoted Holton to the active roster Saturday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

    With Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve, Holton will be brought up from the practice squad to add depth. He played in 16 games with the Steelers last year and caught three of 15 targets for 21 yards. He'll likely operate in a reserve role with the Giants but could contribute on special teams.

  • Giants' Adrian Colbert: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Colbert (quadriceps) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Colbert will likely sit out for a second consecutive game. The Giants' secondary is otherwise healthy, so his probable absence shouldn't shake up the defensive dynamic.

  • Giants' Carter Coughlin: Back to full health

    Coughlin (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Coughlin was kept on the sideline Week 2 due to a hamstring injury, but he now looks ready to go. The rookie seventh-round pick looks on track to contribute on special-teams during Sunday's game against the 49ers.

  • Giants' C.J. Board: Should see more targets

    Board stands to face increased target opportunities with Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve for at least three weeks, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Board has caught all five of his targets for 49 yards through the first two games of the season, and he should now have the chance to see somewhat more consistent looks. Damion Ratley appears to be ahead of Board for the time being, and neither will operate ahead of any of Darius Slatyon, Golden Tate or Evan Engram. Still, if Board can see an uptick in usage during three-receiver sets, he could emerge on the fantasy radar in extremely deep leagues.

  • Giants' Damion Ratley: Facing increased opportunities

    Ratley stands to see an uptick in targets with Sterling Shepard (toe) on injured reserve for at least three weeks, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Ratley has only drawn three targets in two games thus far, but with Shepard set to miss at least three weeks and Saquon Barkley (knee) done for the year, he stands to see a slight increase in targets. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate are the Giants' clear top remaining wideouts, and Evan Engram also remains high in the pecking order, but Ratley does look to be ahead of C.J. Board. He should operate as the No. 3 receiver during Sunday's game against the 49ers.
