It’s a tricky situation when looking at the New York Giants passing game.

Let’s take a closer look at their fantasy football overview heading into a crucial weekend.

Fantasy Football analysis: Giants WRs Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard

With McCoy starting at quarterback on Sunday night in a 20-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Slayton led the team in receiving, catching four of nine targets for 74 yards. In addition, Shepard caught four of the seven balls thrown his way for 51 yards.

On Sunday, the Giants and their receivers will go up against the Baltimore Ravens defense, which ranks 14th against the pass this season in terms of passing yards per game allowed. In its last time out, Baltimore allowed 226 passing yards to the Jacksonville Jaguars. DJ Chark Jr. led the team with 53 receiving yards on four catches.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

There’s no reason to have any Giants wide receivers in your starting lineup this weekend with so many unknowns.
