Odell Beckham Jr, Draws softer Week 7 matchup

Beckham's outlook for Sunday's game against the Bengals may have improved after the Bengals ruled top cornerback William Jackson (concussion) out for the Week 7 matchup, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Though he didn't shadow Beckham exclusively in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Browns, Jackson was still expected to cover the wideout on a majority of his routes Sunday before being ruled out with the head injury. With Mackenzie Alexander slated to match up with a banged-up Jarvis Landry (rib) in the slot, Beckham should now run mainly against perimeter corners LeShaun Sims and Darius Phillips, both of whom represent major downgrades from Jackson in coverage, per Pro Football Focus. Beckham's team context remains less than ideal with the Browns having leaned heavily on the running game this season in part due to quarterback Baker Mayfield's poor efficiency, but the plus matchup with Cincinnati in addition to the absence of top tight end Austin Hooper (appendix) should help the wideout bounce back to some extent after he logged a season-low four targets in the Week 6 loss to Pittsburgh.

Saquon Barkley, Bound for surgery next week

Barkley is scheduled to undergo surgery next Thursday to repair the torn ACL in his right knee, Andrea Kremer of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Though Barkley suffered the season-ending injury back on Sept. 20, he's delayed surgery more than a month while recovering from a less severe MCL strain in the same knee. With his MCL having now healed, Barkley should be at lower risk for any complications with his ACL reconstruction, leaving both the Giants and his doctors hopeful that he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp next year. Since Barkley went down with the knee injury, the Giants have leaned on Devonta Freeman as their main option in the backfield, but he's managed only 3.2 yards per carry across 54 totes through five outings.

Darius Slayton, Quiet in loss to Eagles

Slayton caught two of four targets for 23 yards Thursday in the Giants' 22-21 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Slayton's practice activity heading into the contest was limited to due a foot issue, but being shadowed by top Eagles corner Darius Slay for most of the night likely hindered the wideout's production more than the injury. In addition, the return of Sterling Shepard (toe) from a four-game layoff left fewer looks available for Slayton, who had averaged 7.2 targets per game during that former's absence. Slayton's fantasy outlook won't be any rosier in the Giants' next game on Nov. 2, when he'll be facing off against a Buccaneers defense that has graded out as the NFL's toughest versus receivers this season, per Pro Football Focus.

Golden Tate, Makes most of one catch

Tate secured one of two targets for a 39-yard touchdown in the Giants' 22-21 loss to the Eagles on Thursday night.

Analysis: Tate and the Giants offense appeared to be on the way to a potentially fruitful night when he recorded his 39-yard scoring grab with 4:13 remaining in the first quarter. However, the veteran would only be targeted once the rest of the way, leading to him tying his season-low Week 6 reception tally. Tate has now seen just three targets over the last pair of contests, and with Sterling Shepard (toe) returning from injured reserve Thursday, it's fair to wonder if the 32-year-old's role will continue in similarly modest fashion or if he'll even be a trade candidate before the deadline. Assuming he's still on the roster, Tate will look to boost his overall production at the expense of the Buccaneers in a Week 8 showdown on Monday night, Nov. 2.

Wayne Gallman, Impressive in relief of Freeman

Gallman rushed 10 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and secured all five targets for 20 yards in the Giants' 22-21 loss to the Eagles on Thursday night.

Analysis: After Devonta Freeman appeared to pick up an ankle injury on the second drive of the third quarter, Gallman became the featured back and toughed his way to a solid performance. While running room was often at a premium against the Eagles' stingy front seven, Gallman still found his way to a solid fantasy performance courtesy of a one-yard touchdown run and by serving as a reliable safety valve out of the backfield for Daniel Jones. Freeman will have extra time to heal up ahead of a Monday night, Nov. 2 contest against the Buccaneers in Week 8, but if he's unable to go or limited, Gallman appears to be the favorite to take on the bulk of the rushing workload in that contest.
