Giants Beat: TE Larry Donnell 'still in the plans' as a 'preferred' target

ESPN - [Full Article]

Giants beat writer Dan Graziano: Last week's zero-catch game (for TE Larry Donnell) was not game plan-related, Giants people assure me. With all of their receiving weapons healthy, the Giants are content to take what defenses give them. Donnell is still in the plans as one of several preferred targets, especially in the red zone, where his height gives him an advantage over smaller options such as Odell Beckham Jr., Rueben Randle and Victor Cruz.

Fantasy Impact: 

Donnell followed up a three-TD game with a goose egg, so owners are understandably confused. After 7.8 targets in the first four games, he was targeted once against the Falcons. Odell Beckham returned to the lineup and saw five targets come his way, so his presence may have a negative impact on Donnell's weekly upside. He's still a good option in the redzone and the targets should even out as defenses have to account for all of the Giants' receiving options.
