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.
