Giants TE Larry Donnell (Achilles) should be ready for camp - [Full Article]

Giants beat writer Jordan Raanan:

The good news is that Larry Donnell is out of the walking boot and has been training down in Alabama. My understanding is he's expected to participate in training camp practices this week. It doesn't mean he's completely in the clear. I'm still somewhat concerned about the Achilles problem he had in the spring. It's an old college injury that resurfaced. That means it has never really gone away, and may pop up again.

Fantasy Impact: 

Donnell averaged 82% of the snaps through the first 11 weeks, but played just 69% over the final six games, due to run-blocking and ball-security concerns. He finished the season as the #11 TE in both standard and PPR formats, but did not crack 60 yards or find the endzone in the final six games. He had the 17th-most targets (5.2 T/G) over that span, after seeing the 7th-most (6.1 T/G) in the first 11 weeks. If he improves his blocking, his snaps should rise and that should result in an increase in production. Hopefully that Achilles holds up.
