New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt posted a career-best performance against the New England Patriots. The third-round rookie led the team in targets (6), catches (5), and receiving yards (109) to help lead the Giants to a 10-7 victory. New York only tallied 220 yards of total offense, meaning the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner accounted for nearly half of the team's yards. Hyatt's stat line will draw the attention of fantasy managers scouring the waiver wire for help at the wide receiver position, but the Giants are now heading into their bye. Hyatt is still a better roster fit in deep keeper and dynasty formats.

New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt may get more chances to show off his speed against the Patriots with starting wideout Darius Slayton (neck) doubtful to take the field. Despite tallying just three catches for 26 yards over the last three games with Tommy Devito under center, Hyatt's speed has been a weapon that the Giants' coaching staff has been pushing to get on the field. The other deep threat at the position is the veteran Slayton, who has led the team in receiving yards in two of the last three weeks. The rookie Hyatt is still just a stash candidate in dynasty and deep redraft formats, but he could see an increased number of routes and targets against New England.

New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (concussion) has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will be able to play against the Washington Commanders in Week 11. It's an opportunity for the rookie to repeat or build off of one of the better performances of his young career when he played Washington the first time around. Then, he caught two passes for 75 yards. Tyrod Taylor was under center for that contest. This time, it will be undrafted rookie Tommy Devito picking up his second start. His longest completion has gone for just 34 yards. There aren't any options in the New York passing game worth rostering in redraft formats. Keep hanging on to the third-round rookie in dynasty formats, but don't let him near starting lineups.

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol and will not practice on Wednesday. Hyatt suffered a head injury in the second half of the Week 10 blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday and is now firmly in question to play this Sunday against the Washington Commanders. The 22-year-old third-rounder really only deserves to be stashed in dynasty/keeper leagues, as he's recorded only 11 catches for 214 yards and no touchdowns in New York's disastrous offense in 2023. If Hyatt doesn't get cleared to play in Week 11, it will mean more playing time for Isaiah Hodgins and possibly Sterling Shepard.

New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (head) is dealing with a concussion, suffered during the third quarter of the team's blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The speedy rookie was targeted just once, a deep ball that ended up being intercepted. He appeared to be shaken up on that play and was subsequently ruled out later in the fourth quarter. Fantasy managers will need to monitor his status, although it's unlikely he will clear protocol prior to Sunday's game against the Washington Commanders. The Giants average the fewest points per game and have an undrafted rookie starting at quarterback for the foreseeable future. Unless it's a dynasty format, Hyatt does not need to be on fantasy football radars at all.

New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt (head) was ruled out of Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The wideout suffered a concussion, finishing the game by failing to catch his only target. Hyatt, who entered Week 10 with the third-most receiving yards for the Giants, will likely appear on the injury report ahead of the Week 11 matchup with the Commanders. However, Hyatt hasn't been productive for fantasy managers, so his potential absence wouldn't benefit others within the receiving corps.
Nov 12, 2023 7:28 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is still looking for his breakout game in his young NFL career, but it's highly unlikely that comes against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The Cowboys' secondary allows the sixth-fewest passing yards and ranks in the top five for fewest fantasy points to opposing wideouts. Plus, Hyatt will be on the receiving end of passes from undrafted rookie Tommy Devito, who is making his first career start in the NFL. Hyatt's best skill right now is his speed and the two rookies connecting on a deep ball seems like a lofty goal. The reigning Biletnikoff Award winner is only worthy of a roster spot in dynasty formats.
Nov 10, 2023 5:11 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt caught two of his five targets for 19 yards in the team's 30-6 blowout loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The rookie's target share was tied for second on the team. Hyatt saw his snap percentage tick back up near 60 percent but the offense was a mess without a serviceable quarterback under center. Starter Daniel Jones (knee) missed Hyatt on two deep passes before suffering a major knee injury. Backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) is already on injured reserve. That left undrafted rookie Tommy Devito to take the majority of the snaps. Whether it's DeVito or another quarterback taking snaps against Dallas in Week 10, Hyatt and the rest of the Giants' receivers can not be trusted. The 2023 third-round pick only needs to be rostered in dynasty formats.
Nov 6, 2023 10:05 AM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt saw his involvement in the offense tick up in Weeks 6 and 7 but that all came tumbling down in Week 8. With Daniel Jones (neck) and Tyrod Taylor (ribs) out of the lineup, the passing game went from subpar to nonexistent against the Jets. Hyatt's snap percentage subsequently dropped to 33% and he saw zero targets. With Jones back in the lineup against Las Vegas, Hyatt could return to the 70% snap shares he had been earning. Still, he's only worth rostering right now in dynasty and deep keeper formats.
Nov 4, 2023 10:23 AM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt earned a career-high five targets against Washington as he saw his time on the field jump to over 70 percent. He turned those targets into two catches for 75 yards. The Giants are making a concerted effort to get the third-round rookie more involved as they desperately search for more playmakers in this offense. However, Hyatt and the rest of the wideouts draw a brutal matchup in Week 8. The New York Jets allow the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing receivers. Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed may be the best cornerback duo in the NFL. Hyatt is a worthy stash candidate in redraft leagues but does not need to be in lineups this week.
Oct 28, 2023 10:39 AM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt put together one of his best games as a professional in the team's 14-7 victory over the Washington Commanders. The rookie caught two passes for 75 yards on five targets, including a 42-yard completion down the sideline in the fourth quarter. Hyatt ran the third-most routes for the G-Men behind Darius Slayton and Darren Waller. The Giants continue to get their third-round pick more involved as he gets more comfortable with the NFL game. On the season, the reigning Biletnikoff Trophy winner has nine catches for 195 yards.
Oct 22, 2023 9:34 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt saw a career-high 73% of the snaps in Week 6. That coincided with his best marks in targets and receptions for his young career. Three catches for 21 yards isn't spectacular but it's a sign of further involvement. With only seven catches, the rookie ranks fourth on the team in receiving yards on the season. Hyatt has seemingly surpassed Sterling Shepard, Parris Campbell, and Isaiah Hodgins on the depth chart. Now, he's just waiting for the Giants' offense to ignite. They haven't found in the end zone in three straight games. Hyatt is not a player worth rostering outside of dynasty formats but he could see his stock continue to rise.
Oct 21, 2023 9:50 AM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is seeing more time on the playing field but is still failing to make much of an impact. In the rookie's last three games, he's been shut out twice and caught just two passes for 10 yards in the other. The entire Giants' offense has been a disaster so far this year and it may be getting worse. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor will start in place of Daniel Jones (neck) and the offensive line is banged up. The reigning Biletnikoff Trophy winner can't use his best asset, his speed, to get open down the field when the quarterbacks don't have time to wait for the route to develop. Hyatt still deserves a spot on rosters in dynasty formats but can be left on the waiver wire in redraft leagues.
Oct 14, 2023 10:44 AM EST
New York Giants rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt was barely there in the team's 24-3 drubbing at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football to close out Week 4 action. Hyatt caught both of his targets on the night for just 10 receiving yards. The only good news on this night was that Hyatt played a season-high 60 percent of the offensive snaps. He made some noise in New York's comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2 with two receptions for 89 yards, but the 22-year-old has been very quiet otherwise in a Giants offense where no pass-catcher has stood out through four games. That probably won't change, either, until the G-Men get their offensive-line woes figured out and allow quarterback Daniel Jones more time in the pocket. Hyatt should only be stashed in dynasty/keeper leagues.
Oct 3, 2023 11:33 AM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt kickstarted the team's offense in Week 2 and will look to get more targets in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers. The rookie's first two NFL catches combined for 89 yards and helped the Giants come back from a 20-point deficit against Arizona. The 49ers' defense is unlikely to be as kind to the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner on Thursday Night Football. San Francisco's average passing yards allowed per attempt is among the lowest in the league. Without star running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), the Giants could struggle to string together successful drives. Hyatt is best left on waiver wires in standard-sized leagues for now.
Sep 20, 2023 9:06 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt snagged both of his targets for 89 yards in the team's 31-28 comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals. The rookie caught his first NFL pass on the Giants' opening play from scrimmage in the second half. It went for 58 yards and helped kickstart a sloppy offense. His second catch was for 31 yards on the Giants' game-tying touchdown drive. It's encouraging progress for the 2022 third-round pick, who brings a unique skill set to this offense. However, it'll still be hard for fantasy football managers to trust him until he receives consistent usage.
Sep 17, 2023 10:47 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is still seeking the first catch of his NFL career as he heads into Week 2. The rookie saw just one of Daniel Jones' 28 attempts in Week 1 while playing 36 percent of the snaps. The third-round pick could see some plays schemed for him against the Arizona Cardinals as the coaching staff works to get him more involved. Until we see consistent usage, he does need to be on a roster in standard-sized redraft leagues.
Sep 14, 2023 7:53 PM EST
New York Giants wide receiver Jalin Hyatt saw just one target, which he failed to reel in, in the team's 40-0 Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The entire Giants' offense was inept against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Quarterback Daniel Jones completed 15 passes in the whole game and only five of those went to wide receivers. The 2022 Biletnikoff winner will likely become more involved as the season progresses but he does not need to be rostered in standard-sized redraft leagues right now.
Sep 11, 2023 12:22 AM EST
New York Giants rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt isn't projected to see many targets in his NFL debut on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys. There is a strong chance, however, that Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka scheme a few plays for the reigning Biletnikoff winner. He'll look to show off his speed (he was clocked at over 24 miles per hour during training camp) on touch passes or deep throws. The rookie is a fringe roster player for standard-sized fantasy leagues, but he should garner more playing time as the season progresses.
Sep 8, 2023 9:21 AM EST
The Athletic's Charlotte Carroll thinks that New York Giants rookie wide receiver Jalin Hyatt could be a surprise rookie breakout in 2023. He has become quite comfortable in the offense at training camp despite questions about his route-tree abilities coming out of college. Hyatt has shown speed, made a few long touchdown receptions in practice and had his first receiving touchdown in last week's preseason game. Despite New York's deep receiving room, the 21-year-old has the chance to find success in his first NFL season, especially with his speed. Hyatt isn't going to be the go-to guy in this offense, but Carroll thinks he's a good name to keep an eye on beyond the first-round rookies. If the third-round pick flashes early in 2023, he'll likely become a popular early season waiver-wire pickup.
