Friday PM update: Toney will be out another week with his oblique injury. The good news is that it looks like Sterling Shepard and Kenny Golladay will be able to go.
Friday update: Joe Judge says Toney has progressed with his oblique injury, but suggests the wide receiver will be a game-time decision against the Chargers.
The New York Giants continue to deal with a slew of injuries, with rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney being among them. Toney is still dealing with an oblique injury and was not seen at Wednesday’s practice ahead of the team’s Week 14 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers.
GIANTS INJURY REPORT 12/8— Dan Salomone (@Dan_Salomone) December 8, 2021
Did Not Participate in Practice:
QB Mike Glennon (Concussion)
WR Kenny Golladay (Rib)
DB Adoree' Jackson (Quad)
WR Kadarius Toney (Oblique)
RB Saquon Barkley (Ankle)
QB Daniel Jones (Neck)
WR Sterling Shepard (Quad)
Fantasy football implications
Toney has been a non-factor in this offense when everyone is healthy. Given how New York’s offense has operated in general, there hasn’t been much fantasy relevance for anybody at the skill groups outside of Saquon Barkley. Toney does have some upside with his speed and home-run play ability but there’s also a very low floor. Depending on the injury situation across the board, Toney could see decent targets if he does suit up in Week 14. Managers should be wary of playing him in lineups ahead of more consistent options, especially given New York’s offensive struggles this season.
