NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Indianapolis Colts

Darius Slayton continues to get steady targets, with six last week and at least six in eight out of 12 games this season. Slayton finished last week’s tilt against the Vikings with four catches for 79 yards.

This week, Slayton faces a Colts defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Slayton offers a decent floor based on his targets but limited upside. He should be considered a low-end WR3 option in most leagues.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Minnesota Vikings

Darius Slayton caught five of seven targets last week against the Commanders, but was held to just 23 yards. It was his lowest yardage total in eight games, and third-lowest of the season. Slayton has been a reasonably steady option in an unsteady receiving corps for the Giants.

Slayton has upside this week against a Vikings defense that ranks dead last in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Banking on any Giants wide receiver is tough, but Slayton has the potential to put up low-end WR2 numbers or solid WR3 numbers in a nice matchup.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Washington Commanders

Darius Slayton struggled along with the rest of the Giants offense last week against the Eagles. He finished with just two catches on three targets for 42 yards. Slayton had a run of at least three catches and 60 yards in five straight games prior to Week 14, however, so he has some fantasy value in deeper formats.

This week, we have him ranked as a low-end WR3 option against a tough Washington defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. The semi-emergence of Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James in the offense has made Slayton less of a “last person standing” in the New York receiving corps, but he still should lead the team in targets in most weeks.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Darius Slayton had another modest, but effective performance last week against the Commanders, catching six of his eight targets for 90 yards. Slayton is the clear top option in the Giants’ receiving corps, giving him a nice floor, particularly in PPR leagues. That said, he’s yet to eclipse 100 yards in a game and has just two touchdowns all season, so the ceiling is pretty limited.

This week, Slayton faces a tough Eagles defense that ranks 11th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Slayton is worth considering as a WR3 or low-end flex option, but most fantasy managers should be looking elsewhere for a higher upside player in most leagues. If you need a few guaranteed PPR points, however, Slayton is worth inserting into lineups.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Washington Commanders

Darius Slayton had a modest 63 yards on three receptions last week. Slayton isn’t lighting the world on fire, but over his last five games, he’s averaging 6.4 targets and 73.6 yards per game. He’s also scored two touchdowns in that same span.

Slayton has an above-average matchup this week against the Commander, who rank 19th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. His numbers aren’t likely to reach WR1 territory, but he has WR3 value for fantasy teams needing someone to step in and produce a reasonable floor.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Dallas Cowboys

Darius Slayton caught five balls for 86 yards against the Lions last week, and he was targeted a season-high 10 times. Slayton has been the only receiver worth considering in fantasy for the Giants over the past few weeks, but it’s still risky to trust pass-catchers in New York. They have a tough matchup against Dallas this week, as the Cowboys rank 11th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. In a tough matchup, we have Slayton just outside WR3 territory and fantasy managers should look elsewhere if possible.

NYG WR Darius Slayton - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Detroit Lions

Darius Slayton seems to be the best option in the Giants passing game with at least four targets in three straight games. He’s coming off a three-catch, 95 yards, and a touchdown performance against the Texans last week. However, this offense is hard to trust and four targets isn’t the kind of volume that inspires confidence in fantasy lineups. Against the Lions this week, who rank 21st in aFPA to opposing wide receivers, Slayton is an interesting deep-league option as a WR3. It’s a nice matchup and his recent targets make him at least worth rostering in deeper formats.
