Giants | Tavarres King out for Week 16

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 14:18:13 -0800

New York Giants WR Tavarres King (concussion) did not practice for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 22, and he has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: King had a surprising line with three grabs, 70 yards and two scores in Week 15 against the Eagles, but as quickly as he emerged as a fantasy option, he can be fired back to the waiver wire. King's absence will benefit Roger Lewis and Travis Rudolph, as they're sure to pick up extra targets behind Sterling Shepard.

Giants | Tavarres King dealing with concussion

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 11:48:13 -0800

New York Giants WR Tavarres King (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: King exploded for a season-high 70 receiving yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15, but he is now in a race to get cleared for Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals. He will not be worth using in fantasy even if he does play.

Giants | Lackluster night for Tavarres King

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:36:00 -0800

New York Giants WR Tavarres King caught two passes for 36 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The sad part is that King actually led the team in receiving, but even with Sterling Shepard sidelined, there isn't another Giants receiver worth starting.

Giants | Tavarres King reaches end zone

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:11:14 -0800

New York Giants WR Tavarres King caught three passes for 33 yards and one touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: King has not had a big role since rejoining the Giants but could see more targets during the second half of the season. He should not be starting in any fantasy leagues yet but could be a waiver wire option down the road.

Giants | Tavarres King emerges

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 05:24:04 -0800

New York Giants WR Tavarres King had three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in the playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: He only had two grabs for 50 yards in the regular season, but his play may have thrust him into the slot receiver discussion next season. Keep an eye on him in camp for a possible WR5 flyer.

Giants | Victor Cruz might not have spot

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 18:59:42 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) might not have a spot on the 53-man roster if it comes down to merit, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan. WRs Tavarres King, Roger Lewis, WR Darius Powe and WR Myles White have all made more plays.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is two years removed from a major injury, but apparently he is yet to bounce back to his pre-injury form. He is an extremely risky fantasy selection at this point, and it's probably best to let him be someone else's headache at this point while you stock up on more certain options.

Giants | Tavarres King making strong push

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 17:27:06 -0700

New York Giants WR Tavarres King is making a strong push for the team's fifth wide-receiver spot. He caught at least a handful of balls at practice Thursday, August 4, continuing to build on his effective spring and early summer. He was doing damage all over the field as well.

Fantasy Tip: While King has exhibited some useful potential and could end up on the Giants, as opposed to the practice squad, where he was last year, he's still got ways to go before he becomes fantasy relevant. Owners who are looking for a breakout candidate from this offense should examine rookie receiver Sterling Shepard.
