Eli Manning efficiently completed 17-of-18 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' Week 11 victory over the Bucs.

Eli Manning and the passing game as a whole grabbed some popcorn and watched as Saquon Barkley led the way with season-highs in carries (27), rushing yards (142), and total touchdowns (3). Even so, it was a tremendously efficient performance for Manning, who primarily relied on YAC to build up his total yardage. He'll be asked to do more in what is actually a plus matchup on paper against the Eagles' ailing secondary in Week 12.

Sterling Shepard caught both of his targets for 22 yards in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Bucs.

Much like the rest of the Giants' receivers, Shepard wasn't needed on a day that saw Saquon Barkley carry the load for 27/142/2. Odell Beckham actually led with a relatively low four targets. Shepard and Beckham will be called upon in Week 12 against the divisional foe Eagles. Consider Shepard a low-end WR3 in that matchup given that he's still coming off consecutive letdowns in what were actually plus matchups against the Niners and Bucs.
Nov 18 - 5:45 PM

Odell Beckham vacuumed all four of his targets for 74 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 11 victory over the Bucs.

Four targets may not seem like much, but it was actually a team-high in what was ultimately Saquon Barkley's penultimate display of athleticism. Barkley led the way on the ground with 27/142/2 as the Giants got the rookie steamrolling and never looked back. Although divisional games the second time around have historically been tougher for quarterbacks, Odell Beckham is talented enough to pick Eli Manning up on his own and turn in another WR1 showing against the Eagles' makeshift secondary in Week 12.
Nov 18 - 5:38 PM

Evan Engram hauled in both of his targets for 66 yards in the Giants' Week 11 victory over the Bucs.

He only saw two targets on the day, but Engram made one in particular count 54-yards downfield. Typically the Giants' third receiving option behind Odell Beckham and Saquon Barkley, Engram is at least slated with another good matchup against the Eagles' ailing secondary in Week 12. Lock him in.
Nov 18 - 5:23 PM

Saquon Barkley rushed 27 times for a season-high 142 yards and two touchdowns, tacking on another receiving touchdown for good measure in the Giants' Week 11 victory over the Bucs.

Even Barkley's lack of involvement in the passing game can't be knocked since one of his three targets on the day resulted in a touchdown. A big outing was expected given that the Bucs were without stud defenders Kwon Alexander (torn ACL), Vinny Curry (ankle), and Lavonte David (knee), but Barkley exceeded all expectations in hitting season-high marks in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns. The generational talent is now remarkably on pace for 253/1,164/11 on the ground and 102/864/5 receiving. He's obviously a matchup-proof commodity that should close the year in elite company.
Nov 18 - 4:19 PM

Giants declared QB Kyle Lauletta, CB Tony Lippett, C Evan Brown, S Kamrin Moore, DT R.J. McIntosh, DT John Jenkins, and WR Jawill Davis inactive for Week 11 against the Buccaneers.

No surprises here. With Lauletta inactive for another week, the Giants once again have no choice but to hope Eli Manning keeps their offense afloat by any means necessary. It's a terrific matchup for Saquon Barkley at least as the Bucs are without stud LB Lavonte David (knee) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle), among others.
Nov 18 - 11:38 AM

Jonathan Stewart (I.R., foot) has resumed practicing.

Stewart is eligible to come off injured reserve this week, though the Giants haven't indicated whether he'll play Sunday against Tampa Bay. Even if J-Stew is activated, he'll just be fighting for scraps behind rookie workhorse Saquon Barkley.
Nov 15 - 1:10 PM

Sterling Shepard caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 10 win over the 49ers, adding 27 yards on his one carry.

If not for the touchdown and the long gain on the ground, it would have been an extremely disappointing night for Shepard in a plum matchup. He was able to somewhat save things by catching the game-winning three-yard score with 53 seconds left to put the Giants up 27-23. Shepard will be a WR3 in another plus spot against the Bucs next week.
Nov 13 - 12:00 AM

Evan Engram caught 4-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Giants' Week 10 win over the 49ers.

He did all of his damage in the second half after catching one ball for no gain prior to the break. Engram's longest gain of 31 was a shot down the sideline where he was tackled inside the 10-yard line late in the fourth quarter. Engram has been a distant third or fourth option when healthy this season but does get a promising Week 11 date with the Bucs and will be a locked-in TE1.
Nov 12 - 11:54 PM

Saquon Barkley rushed 20 times for 67 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards in the Giants' Week 10 win over the 49ers.

It's Barkley's eighth 100-yard game in nine contests as a pro. There wasn't much running room to be found, and Barkley's biggest play was a 23-yard catch across the middle on a third down on the final game-winning drive with the Giants still down 23-20. Bigger days are ahead obviously, and the Giants will head home on a short week to face the Bucs' bottom-barrel defense in Week 11.
Nov 12 - 11:41 PM

Odell Beckham caught 4-of-11 targets for 73 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 27-23, Week 10 win over the 49ers on Monday night.

It wasn't a very efficient night for Beckham, as he had a bad drop on the first play of the game, but OBJ was able to make his catches count. His first score came from 10 yards out as he was left wide open on the back line of the end zone, while his second was a 20-yard connection over the top of CB Ahkello Whitherspoon. Beckham has 100 yards and/or one touchdown in all but three games this season. He gets the Bucs at home in a mouthwatering Week 11 spot.
Nov 12 - 11:33 PM

Eli Manning completed 19-of-31 passes for 188 yards and three touchdowns in the Giants' 27-23, Week 10 win over the 49ers on Monday night.

The yards-per-attempt (6.1) is pretty hideous, but Manning got the job done with a big second half. He had 63 yards on 15 attempts before the break, but found Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard for touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters after the Giants fell behind 20-10. Beckham caught two of Manning's three scores, totaling 4-73-2 on 11 targets. Shepard's three-yarder came with 53 second left to give the G-Men a 27-23 lead. The Giants will head back home to face the Bucs in Week 11. It's a prime matchup for Eli, but he's still nothing more than a mid-range QB2.
Nov 12 - 11:23 PM

Giants declared QB Kyle Lauletta, WR/KR Jawill Davis, CB Tony Lippett, C Evan Brown, DT RJ McIntosh, DT John Jenkins, and S Kamrin Moore inactive for Week 10 against the 49ers.

They're all healthy scratches, as the Giants had an empty injury report. Lauletta's deactivation means we won't be seeing him at all in Santa Clara.
Nov 12 - 6:59 PM

Coach Pat Shurmur said the Giants are preparing new RG Jamon Brown as a starter.

Brown started all 16 games for the Rams last season but lost his job this year to Austin Blythe and was cut last week only to be claimed by the Giants. (Multiple teams put in a claim.) Brown is a mauler at 6'4/340 who prefers to run block. If he starts, Brown will replace veteran RG John Greco.
Nov 8 - 11:28 AM

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said QB Kyle Lauletta will not be suspended by the team.

Lauletta was arrested for allegedly almost hitting a cop with his car last week. Shurmur said the team handled the situation internally. With Eli Manning seemingly headed out the door, the Giants could give Lauletta some starts down the stretch.
