Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Philadelphia Eagles

Darius Slayton went into Week 6 hobbled and then looked hurt after his touchdown reception against Washington. Slayton hasn’t been ruled out for Thursday night though, and he has upside in good matchups given he’s the only true outside receiver for the Giants. Slayton ended up with two catches for 41 yards and a touchdown last week. He’s averaging 7.3 targets per game and leads the team in every receiving category, including an impressive 16.2 yards per catch.

This week, Slayton faces an Eagles defense that ranks 27th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this season, giving him significant WR2 upside. Marquise Brown caught four balls for 57 yards against the Eagles last week, which should be low-end numbers for Slayton in a game where the Giants should be throwing. Watch the injury report, but as long as he’s good, he should be active as a sneaky WR2 in a great matchup.
