New York Giants WR Corey Washington has few targets, zero catches and he was inactive in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. Receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22, Washington has disappeared after his big preseason because he is still raw. "He's learning to run an entire route tree," Ryan said. "There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his tops of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress."

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has completed 65 percent of his passes, which would be a career high. He also has 14 touchdown passes to just five interceptions, compared to 10 touchdowns and 15 interceptions at this point last season. "(The difference is) probably in his football," quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf said Wednesday, Oct. 22. "I think he is playing at a high level and I think improved football has really helped out."

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. might be moved around over the final nine games, according to receivers coach Sean Ryan. He said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he envisions moving Beckham around so teams cannot just key on the young playmaker, and the belief is that Beckham's skills will play well in the slot. The only thing that may prevent the team from moving him inside is that they don't want "to overload him."
Fantasy Tip: Whatever role he fulfills down the stretch, it is certain he will have a bigger role with Cruz done for the season. Beckham is still a pretty decent bargain at $5,300 (or 10.6 percent of the cap) in FantasyScore.

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle could be used in the slot over the final nine games, as the team works to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee). "The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Rueben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field," receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is just scratching the surface, according to tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride. Some of his mistakes, including fumbles and blocking deficiencies, are simply the product of a player at the low end of his ultimate progression. "He's so green with everything he does," Gilbride said. "He hasn't been playing the position for very long. But he works at it, he tries to get better and it's paid off in the passing game and he's getting better every week in the run game."
Fantasy Tip: Donnell is a tempting play in FantasyScore at $5,000 (or 10.0 percent of the cap). However, he has done next to nothing lately, and is overpriced, even at this level.

New York Giants OG Geoff Schwartz (toe) is destined to return to practice next week, but he still has a ways to go before he is ready for a game. Offensive line coach Pat Flaherty is uncertain where Schwartz will play, only that he will. Schwartz might play right guard for OG John Jerry or left guard for rookie OG Weston Richburg.

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (toe) said it was 50-50 whether he returns this year and will have to get clearance from a foot specialist to make sure surgery isn't the best long-term option. Surgery would end his season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings could be eased back in if he does return after the bye week. It's too early to gauge how healthy he is at this point, so keep tabs on his status throughout this week and next week.
