New York Giants WR Corey Coleman suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Giants are now dealing with multiple injuries at the position after Sterling Shepard dislocated his thumb on Thursday as well. But Coleman's injury is very unfortunate as he was competing for the third or fourth wide receiver role on the Giants behind Shepard, Golden Tate and, at the very least, battling with Cody Latimer. This now opens the door for fifth-round pick Darius Slayton to push for one of the last spots on the depth chart. An unfortunate setback for the former first-round pick.
BUF WR Corey Coleman - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook
If the Bills took the time to trade for Corey Coleman, they must see something in him. He is a former first-round draft pick who is entering his third season. Many receivers finally figure it out in their third year and Coleman could be one of those guys. He will probably be the starter opposite Kelvin Benjamin and that means potential targets and receptions. Coleman escaped Cleveland which is always a positive.
Coleman only played 19-of-36 games for Cleveland and his production was poor—56 receptions in two seasons isn't much for a featured receiver. He might be better off in Buffalo but the QB situation for the Bills is far from settled.
2018 Bottom Line
A change of scenery might help Coleman but he is probably someone to monitor on the waiver wire. Even as a Bill, he isn't getting drafted. We have him ranked as our No. 107 receiver. Stay away.
