Darius Slayton Catches Three Passes In Comeback Win

Sunday, September 17, 11:03 PM

New York Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton caught three of his six targets for 62 yards in the team's 31-28 victory over Arizona. The 26-year-old was blanked in the first half as the Giants struggled to move the football. Down 20 at the half, Daniel Jones came out slinging and Slayton played his part in the comeback. The former fifth-round pick plays a lot of snaps for New York but doesn't typically give managers a fantasy-worthy performance. He should be avoided in Week 3 when the Giants travel to San Francisco for Thursday Night Football.

Tyquan Thornton Heading To Injured Reserve

Thursday, August 31, 9:27 AM

New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton (shoulder) will spend the first four weeks of the season on the sideline. The team is placing him on short-term injured reserve. The sophomore suffered the injury during training camp. The Patriots tried to design plays for the speedster in 2022 but failed to do so with much success. He caught just 22 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games. Once healthy, Thornton will sit behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kendrick Bourne, and DeVante Parker on New England's depth chart.
