Slayton was the No. 35 receiver in 2019, finishing just behind other rookies like D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel and Terry McLaurin. Once he started seeing consistent playing time in Week 5, he averaged 3.6-54-0.67 ton 6.3 targets per game down the stretch. He saw a 17.0% target rate from Daniel Jones, and accounted for 18.8% of Jones’s passing yardage from Week 5 on. The issue with Slayton is the same as it is with the other Giant pass-catchers. The team doesn’t have a clear pecking order, so consistency is likely to be an issue all year, unless an injury or two make things clearer. For that reason, Slayton (along with Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram) have more appeal in best ball formats than traditional redraft leagues where owners have to decide if/when to start them.
