What to do with Darius Slayton, Golden Tate in Week 6 fantasy football

We go over Darius Slayton, Golden Tate’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Giants Week 6 matchup against Washington.

Game status: Slayton is ACTIVE for Week 6.

The New York Giants offense leaves a lot to be desired on a weekly basis this season. Quarterback Daniel Jones can’t stop turning over the football, and without running back Saquon Barkley, the offense just looks a little confused. However, despite those struggles, wide receiver Darius Slayton has been a viable fantasy option. Behind him on the depth chart is Golden Tate, who’s been decent for the Giants, but not enough to be a reliable fantasy contributor.

Fantasy Football analysis: Giants WR Darius Slayton, Golden Tate

Slayton is coming off one of his best games of the season. He had eight grabs on 11 targets last week to finish the game against Dallas with 129 yards. That was his second outing with triple-digit yardage. And though it’d be nice if he could find the end zone again (he’s got just two scores this season) his upside is worth a roster spot.

Tate has yet to top 47 yards in a single outing this season, and he has no touchdowns.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Darius Slayton. Sit Golden Tate.
