Giants | Giants comfortable with WR options

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 10:07:20 -0700

New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. are acceptable options to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee), according to head coach Tom Coughlin, with WR Preston Parker in the slot position. The Giants are content in not trading for another receiver from outside the organization. The only other healthy receiver on the current roster is WR Corey Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Randle, Beckham and Parker will see increased opportunities in the offense moving forward with Cruz out for the season. That'll boost their values, but there could be growing pains with these young receivers as they're given more attention from opponents.

Giants | Odell Beckham could play the slot

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 13:06:08 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. could move to the slot with WR Victor Cruz (knee) out for the season, but Beckham has never played the position. WR Preston Parker filled in in the slot in Week 6 when Cruz was injured, and he can play on the outside, too. WR Corey Washington has worked exclusively on the outside and could see some more opportunities in the offense with Cruz out.

Fantasy Tip: After a fine season debut in Week 5, Beckham had just two catches (four targets) for 28 yards in the Week 6 loss. He'll have his ups and downs, especially if he moves to the slot to learn a new position. All of the Giants receivers will see a boost in value with Cruz out, and Parker is worth a look on the waiver wire in deeper leagues.

Giants | Odell Beckham quickly ascends

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:03:18 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) was eased back in his regular season debut in Week 5, coming off the bench behind WR Preston Parker. However, he played a major role as the No. 3 receiver in the second half, and he posted his first touchdown. He played 35 of 68 snaps (51.5 percent), and that role is expected to grow moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham was a great daily fantasy value last weekend, and he will be solid mid-level daily option going forward in the No. 3 receiver role.

Giants | Odell Beckham to be used more?

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 13:41:24 -0700

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. played 35 of 68 offensive snaps in his NFL debut in Week 5, and that figure is expected to increase moving forward. He sat behind WR Preston Parker in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons, but then played a huge role as the No. 3 receiver in the second half with the team trailing. Beckham showed great athleticism and scored a touchdown in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham's ceiling is very high for his fantasy owners. His matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night is very enticing, too. Beckham could put up impressive numbers for a second straight week.

Saints | Preston Parker impressive in preseason game

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 01:04:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Preston Parker caught a pair of touchdown passes in his team's 17-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Aug. 9. Parker is trying to earn the No. 3 receiver spot on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Although Parker is competing with rookie WR Kenny Stills for the third spot behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore, QB Drew Brees has proven time and again he will go to players who catch the ball on a regular basis. It will take more than one game to determine who wins this battle, but if Parker does he may be worth stashing as a deep bench option.

Saints | Younger WRs could get more chances

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:27:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints WRs Saalim Hakim, Preston Parker, Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon could each see bigger roles following the injury to WR Joe Morgan (knee), who is likely to miss at least a few weeks. However, the team values experience in the top three receiver roles, and it is believed veteran WR Steve Breaston will get a long look as the No. 3 first before any of the younger players.
