Takes hard hit

Sills left practice early Thursday after suffering what appeared to be a back or rib injury, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports.

Analysis: Sills sustained the injury while landing hard on the ground on an attempted catch. However, he was able to walk off the field on his own. The soon-to-be 27-year-old appeared in nine games for the Giants last season, making 11 catches on 17 targets for 106 yards. He is expected to be fighting for a depth role in the Giants' receiving corps, which added Parris Campbell, Jeff Smith and Jamison Crowder in free agency, while also adding Jalin Hyatt in the third round of the 2023 Draft.

Returns to New York

Sills signed with the Giants' practice squad Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sills was waived by the Giants on Saturday, but he'll now return to the team's practice squad. He's appeared in 9 games for the Giants this season, making 11 catches on 17 targets for 106 yards. Although, most of that work took place early in the season, as the 26-year-old was a healthy scratch for six of the team's last seven contests.

Let loose by New York

The Giants waived Sills on Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Sills played a significant role for New York early in the season, logging between 43 and 91 percent of the team's offensive snaps during each contest between Week 1 and Week 5. However, his opportunities have tailed off since then, and he was a healthy scratch six times over the past seven weeks. Sills has been with the Giants organization since 2019 but may now seek work elsewhere.

Back on inactive list

Sills (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: After he was a healthy inactive from three consecutive games, Sills dressed for the Giants' 20-20 with the Commanders a week ago, but he played just one snap during that contest. He now finds himself back in street clothes Sunday while the Giants keep five other wideouts (Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins, Richie James, Kenny Golladay and Marcus Johnson) active ahead of him.

Inactive again

Sills (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Lions.

Analysis: Sills is a healthy scratch for a second straight week after appearing in each of the team's first eight contests, totaling 11 receptions on 17 targets for 106 yards. The Giants' wideout room was banged up to start the season, but they got Kenny Golladay back in Week 10, leaving Sills buried on the depth chart.

Inactive for Week 10

Sills (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Houston.

Analysis: Sills has appeared in every game for the Giants this season, totaling 11 receptions on 17 targets for 106 yards. However, Sills will take a seat on the bench with Kenny Golladay back in the mix following a lengthy absence due to a knee injury.

Unproductive again in Week 8

Sills caught one of two targets for five yards Sunday in a loss to Seattle.

Analysis: Sills' lone catch in the contest came early in the third quarter during a drive that ended with a Graham Gano field goal. Since playing 91 percent of New York's offensive snaps and finishing with three catches in Week 2 against Carolina, Sills has seen his snap count and production trend progressively downward. With only 11 catches for 106 yards and no touchdowns through eight games this season, he's not currently on the fantasy radar.

Quiet in Week 5 win

Sills caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 27-22 victory versus the Packers in London.

Analysis: Sills looked like he could see ample opportunities leading into the weekend as one of three healthy wideouts for New York. Instead, Darius Slayton -- who entered Week 5 with only one catch on two targets -- emerged as the team's top receiver, hauling in six of seven targets for 79 yards. In addition, Marcus Johnson -- who was elevated from the practice squad Saturday -- logged more catches (three) and tallied more yards (35) than did Sills. The surprising final stat lines emphasize the unsettled hierarchy of a New York wide-receiver room that is best avoided in fantasy.

Opportunity abounds

Sills is likely to see plenty of snaps in Sunday's game against Green Bay with all of Kenny Golladay (knee), Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) ruled out for the clash in London.

Analysis: The Giants received good news Friday when Daniel Jones was able to log a full practice after hurting his ankle in Week 4. While the quarterback appears in line to start in London on Sunday, he'll be without many of his usual pass catchers as injuries have already decimated New York's wideout corps. Sills and Richie James -- two of the last men standing -- should see plenty of reps, and Darius Slayton could get extra run as well. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that any New York wideouts are worth pursuing in fantasy -- the Giants rank second-to-last in passing yards per game through four weeks, and running back Saquon Barkley has played a significant role in the team's air attack, tying for the team lead with 15 receptions.

Could see expanded opportunity

Sills could be one of four healthy receivers currently on the active roster available for Sunday's game against Chicago, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sills hasn't been wildly productive this season -- he's nabbed just five catches on eight targets for 57 yards through three games -- but he's been on the field for the majority of the team's offensive snaps and looks to have moved further up the depth chart by default after top wideout Sterling Shepard was lost for the season as a result of tearing his ACL last Sunday. New York's receiver room has been a mess again this season, as Kenny Golladay has played sporadically and caught just two passes so far while Kadarius Toney (hamstring) has been essentially invisible and is questionable to play in Week 4. That has given Sills and Richie James the opportunity to make a push for more playing time, though the eventual return of rookie Wan'Dale Robinson -- who suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of the season opener and hasn't played since -- could shake up the pecking order.

Sees role increased

Sills caught three of four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Sills enjoyed the best game of his brief career while teammate Kenny Golladay barely saw the field. In fact, Sills trailed only Richie James for the Giants' lead in receiving yards. With Golladay and Kadarius Toney hardly contributing to begin the campaign, Sills' stock is trending in the right direction ahead of Week 3's clash with the Cowboys.

Tallies 56 yards in preseason debut

Sills corralled five of seven targets for 56 yards in Sunday's preseason victory versus the Bengals.

Analysis: Sills didn't play in New York's first exhibition game last Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, but he was back in action for the team's second contest Sunday. The 26-year-old ranked second on the squad in receiving yards and third in receptions in the win. Sills is considered a long shot for a spot on the 53-man roster, so he'll be looking to make another strong impression in the Giants' third and final preseason game against the Jets next weekend.

Aug 22, 2022 8:09 PM EST

Unlikely to play Thursday

Sills is dealing with an undisclosed injury and probably won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Sills was an early standout in camp, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, but he's now dealing with an injury that is expected to keep him out of the preseason opener. The West Virginia product would presumably need to show up big in preseason contests to have a chance at making the 53-man roster, so his inability to play Thursday could be particularly detrimental to his outlook with the team.

Aug 10, 2022 10:54 PM EST

Re-signed by Giants

The Giants re-signed Sills on Friday, John Fennelly of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Sills, who was an impending exclusive rights free agent, made four appearances for the Giants last season. He play 95 total offensive snaps and caught two of six targets for 17 yards.

Mar 13, 2022 7:40 AM EST

Lands on active roster

Sills was signed by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official sitereports.

Analysis: Sills has spent the majority of the season on the Giants' practice squad, though he has appeared in three games while racking up two receptions for 17 yards. With Kadarius Toney (shoulder), John Ross (knee), and Sterling Shepard (Achilles) all out, Sills figures to serve a depth role among the team's receiving corps Sunday.

Jan 8, 2022 1:52 PM EST

Catches lone target in loss

Sills caught his only target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's 29-3 loss to Chicago.

Analysis: Sills led all Giants pass-catchers not named Kenny Golladay in playing time Sunday but wasn't able to garner much attention. Despite seeing 40 snaps (71 percent), the West Virginia product didn't get a pass thrown his way until the fourth quarter. The 12-yard pickup was the second-longest of the day for the Giants, which just goes to show the state of their offense right now.

Jan 3, 2022 10:50 AM EST

Joins active roster for Sunday

Sills was elevated to the Giants' active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Bears, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Sills had one catch for five yards while playing 15 offensive snaps last week against the Eagles, and he'll be on the 53-man roster again Sunday. He could be more involved versus Chicago since Kenny Golladay is the only regular member of New York's receiving corps that is available for Week 17.

Jan 1, 2022 1:42 PM EST

Back to practice squad

Sills reverted to the Giants' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Analysis: Sills played 15 of the team's 76 offensive snaps and caught his only target for five yards. He also played seven special-team snaps. If the Giants' wideout corps remains depleted, Sills may get another elevation in Week 17.

Dec 28, 2021 1:19 PM EST

Joins active roster

The Giants elevated Sills from the practice squad Saturday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Sills previously was on the active roster for one game this season, a Week 7 matchup with the Panthers in which he couldn't gather in his only target. His next catch actually will double as the first of his career if he gets on the field, which could happen in a receiving corps that could be without all of Kadarius Toney (oblique), Sterling Shepard (Achilles/IR), John Ross (COVID-19), Collin Johnson (hamstring), C.J. Board (arm/IR) and Dante Pettis (shoulder/IR).

Dec 25, 2021 7:53 PM EST

Back in New York

Sills signed with the Giants' practice squad Thursday, Dan Benton of Giants Wire reports.

Analysis: Sills was waived by the Giants on Tuesday but has now returned to the team in a lesser capacity. He was active in Week 7 prior to being cut, though he wasn't able to convert his only target into a reception.
