Giants WR Corey Washington scored his fourth fourth-quarter touchdown Friday night, and three of them have been game-winners. That matches Cruz’s scoring total from his first preseason, when he went from some guy from UMass to a star in New York.
“Anytime anybody plays in a superb fashion, it gets your attention,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, via Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. “He has one area that he has done very well, and that is he will go up and get the ball. That has been very noticeable.”
Washington’s 6-foot-5, and the Giants lack much size in their receiving corps. They claimed Washington off waivers from the Cardinals in May, and he has a good chance of sticking with the Giants. He was still buried as a WR3 on the depth chart but given rookie teammate Odell Beckham can't seem to get on the field Washington could find himself contributing. Still best to take a wait-and-see approach from a fantasy perspective.
