NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Chicago Bears

Kadarius Toney returned to action last week but struggled along with the rest of the Giants offense, catching four balls for just 28 yards. He did lead the team with nine targets, giving him some upside, but the Giants are just a difficult team to bank on right now. With the exception of deep leagues where you need a flyer, it’s best to ignore this passing offense completely for the rest of this season.

Update: Toney is out. If this affects your lineup decisions, you're probably already in trouble, but be sure to get him out of your lineup.

NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Kadarius Toney was the lone “bright” spot for the Giants’ offense – unless you count OT Andrew Thomas, who caught a touchdown pass – with seven catches and 40 yards. He was targeted 12 times, and if the team continues to use him in this capacity, he could enter WR3 territory in PPR formats.

This week, Toney faces an Eagles defense that ranks third in aFPA to opposing running backs. It’s not a good matchup and the team is in disarray after firing Jason Garrett, so fantasy managers should hold off if possible. He has some upside with the targets he got last week as a desperation WR3 option, but in most leagues, he should be left on the bench.

NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kadarius Toney was very disappointing against the Raiders before the bye last week, with just seven total yards on one catch and one carry. Toney was supposed to benefit from the absence of Sterling Shepard, but the team ended up throwing the ball just 20 times and Toney was an afterthought. With Shepard likely back and Golladay back in the fold, Toney is better off on your bench as a stash option for later in the season. He’ll have some upside if Shepard is a late scratch again, but for the most part, he’s too volatile to have in lineups. Sit him.

NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Kadarius Toney had four catches on five targets for 26 yards last week against the Chiefs, and he also threw a 19-yard pass. Toney left the game with a thumb injury, so keep an eye on the rookie’s status throughout the week.

Assuming he’s active, Toney faces a Raiders defense that ranks 10th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. It’s not a great matchup, but he’s been targeted when healthy and seems to have a nice rapport with Daniel Jones, as well as a key role in the offense. Fantasy managers should use caution and check the injury report before game time, but if he’s active, he has WR3 potential with some boom-bust upside.

NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Kadarius Toney blew up last week against the Cowboys, catching 10 of 13 targets for 189 yards. He also threw a punch, got ejected, and may be hurt, so fantasy managers should keep an eye on his availability for this week. With so many injured pass-catchers in New York, Toney definitely has an opportunity to rise, and he should be a hot waiver target for fantasy managers.

Toney faces a Rams defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Toney lines up all over the field, so he shouldn’t be stuck on Jalen Ramsey Island, making it likely he continues to see heavy targets, as long as he’s healthy. Keep an eye on his status, but he’s worth considering as a WR3 or flex option with massive risk-reward potential based on potential targets.

NYG WR Kadarius Toney - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Dallas Cowboys

Kadarius Toney filled in nicely for the injured Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton last week, leading the team with nine targets and finishing with six catches and 78 yards. Toney is worth a speculative addition to fantasy rosters, but it’s too soon to trust him in lineups. Give him a couple of games to see if that target share stays high, even against a vulnerable defense like the Cowboys, who rank 26th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. We have him ranked outside starter territory this week.
