New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger is slated to be the featured tight end for the fourth straight week due to the absence of Darren Waller (hamstring). Unfortunately, his production hasn't matched that of a starting tight end. The sophomore has drawn just three targets in all three games, totaling eight catches for 115 yards. That would be a great stat line for one game. It isn't even on the fantasy football radar when spread across three games. It remains to be seen if Waller will return from injured reserve following the New York bye week. Regardless, Bellinger does not need to be added or started on fantasy football rosters.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger caught all three of his targets for 38 yards in the team's 31-19 win over the Washington Commanders. The stat line is becoming the norm for Bellinger while Darren Waller (hamstring) sits on injured reserve. He's logged three targets in every game that the starter has missed. While consistent, the numbers aren't flashy at all, and Bellinger won't be a hot commodity at the position anytime soon. The Giants host the New England Patriots in Week 12 and Bellinger will get at least one more shot at being the starter. Waller is eligible to come off of injured reserve after New York's bye week, but it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to do so.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger is coming off of a game where he led the team in receiving yards, but the total didn't send fantasy managers running to the waiver wire to pick him up. Bellinger caught just two passes for 34 yards. The Giants' aerial offense continued their abysmal play against Dallas. The opportunity for improvement is there against the Commanders, who allow the fourth-most passing yards per game. However, there is still no trust in any pass-catching option in the New York offense as long as undrafted rookie Tommy Devito is under center. Bellinger will continue to start in place of Darren Waller (hamstring) but he can remain on the waiver wire across all formats.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger caught two passes for 34 yards in the team's 49-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. A 26-yard snag late in the fourth quarter pushed his numbers to the top of the Giants' box score. All New York receiving options totaled just 86 yards. The entire passing attack is inept with undrafted rookie Tommy Devito under center. Bellinger will have at least two more opportunities to start with Darren Waller (hamstring) on injured reserve. However, there's no reason to roster the sophomore with the struggles from DeVito and the rest of the passing game.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger will log another start in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys with Darren Waller (hamstring) on injured reserve. The second-year pro set his season-high marks in catches (3) and yards (43) against the Raiders in Week 9. A similar output may be on the docket this Sunday. Bellinger isn't a dynamic threat in the receiving game and will have undrafted rookie Tommy Devito under center. Bellinger is just a desperation option at the tight end position for Week 10.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger is in line to start Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders due to the injury to starter Darren Waller (hamstring). It's familiar territory for Bellinger, who served as the starter for the majority of last season. When the team acquired Waller in the offseason, the sophomore was shown the back seat. Fantasy managers can't rely on Bellinger to completely replace Waller's production. Last season, he averaged just 2.5 catches for 22 yards per game. Bellinger isn't worth rostering in redraft leagues.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger figures to get the starting nod at tight end for the Week 9 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. Fellow tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) is expected to miss multiple weeks due to injury. That means, Bellinger should see an expanded role in the offense. Bellinger was a starter throughout most of last season, but took a backseat to Waller once he arrived. The 23-year-old only has four receptions for 22 yards this season, but that was as the primary backup. Fantasy managers shouldn't be jumping to start Bellinger this week, but keep an eye on him in case he does get increased snaps.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Miami Dolphins. The 23-year-old suffered a knee injury during Monday's loss to the Seahawks and was limited in practice during the week. With that said, Bellinger only has three catches this season, so he isn't expected to be featured in many fantasy lineups in Week 5, although the team would miss him for blocking purposes.

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger (neck) was a limited practice participant on Thursday due to a neck injury, per Dan Salomone of the team's official site. Bellinger brought in one pass for eight yards during last Thursday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers but didn't exit the contest at any point, so it's not known when he picked up the setback. The 23-year-old has an extra day to get right with Week 4's matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks not kicking off until Monday night. Bellinger is not currently fantasy relevant, but his possible absence could force the G-Men to lean even more on starter Darren Waller in the passing game.
