Player Notes

  • Kenny Golladay (hamstring) avoided a major injury
    Kenny Golladay pulled his hamstring Tuesday, but early tests indicate that it is not a major injury.

    Advice: There was some real trepidation in New York on Tuesday, after Golladay pulled up and grabbed at the back of his leg. Golladay will undergo more tests Wednesday, but early indications are that he avoided a significant injury. While a hamstring injury is not ideal for a deep threat wide receiver, Golladay should have enough time before the season to properly recover from a minor hamstring pull, provided he's not rushed back. Without Golladay, the Giants decision to triple down on Daniel Jones may not go as planned.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 7 minutes ago

  • Dallas has a shot to get run on third-downs
    The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar believes that DeeJay Dallas "has a shot to be the team’s primary third-down running back."

    Advice: Dugar noted that Dallas looked like the best route-runner from Seattle's backfield but still needs to work on his pass-blocking to secure the role. That would be a major blow to Rashaad Penny, who is also in play as an option on third-downs. Penny was a serviceable pass-catcher in college but has been unable to get on the field in any capacity since joining the league. He has appeared in 27 games over three years and has yet to make his first official start. Chris Carson is also in the mix for receiving duties. He looked comfortable when asked to catch passes last year, tying his career-high in receptions (37) in just 12 games. Dallas won't be a viable fantasy option even if he does secure the role but that would remove Penny from draft boards and take some upside off the table for Carson.

  • Michael Carter a step above his competition
    The Athletic's Connor Hughes noted that rookie RB Michael Carter is "a step above the other three running backs."

    Advice: The other three running backs Hughes was referring to are Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson, and Lamical Perine. We're still early in training camp but Carter has already earned reps with the first team and is now looking better than his competition for touches. While it's unlikely that he dominates New York's backfield early in the season, a split that favors him over Coleman from Week 1 is looking increasingly possible. Currently going as an RB3 in most drafts, expect Carter's draft stock to rise throughout August if he keeps running laps around his teammates.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:20 pm

  • Giants to work out Josh Doctson this week
    Former first-round WR Josh Doctson will work out for the Giants later this week.

    Advice: Doctson last played for the Vikings in 2019, although he only appeared in one game and failed to record a target. He last really played three years ago for Washington when he posted just 6.8 yards per target across 78 opportunities. The G-Men have a crowded WR depth chart, so Doctson isn't on the fantasy radar even if he does sign. Former Michigan State QB Brian Lewerke will also work out for New York this week.

  • Denver puts KJ Hamler on COVID list
    Broncos placed WR KJ Hamler on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Advice: Coach Vic Fangio remarked that Hamler "could be back here tomorrow," which would imply the second-year WR did not test positive. Last week, Fangio emphasized the importance of keeping Hamler healthy, saying that "we need to have a special plan for him to get enough work and still keep him away from those soft-tissue injuries." Hamler dealt with hamstring issues throughout last year, but the Penn State product could emerge as Denver's WR3 this year if healthy. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:22 pm
