News: 1 day agoToney (leg) is participating in individual drills during Tuesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Spin: Toney is also participating in some positional drills Tuesday. The second-year wideout isn't expected to fully practice this week after having sat out the Giants' first preseason contest, but it's encouraging to see him participating in some capacity. The Giants appear likely to take a cautious approach to Toney's health, so he may not have favorable chances of suiting up for Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Toney had quite the polarizing rookie season, showing flashes of heavy usage and playmaking ability, but also suffering badly due to multiple injuries and the Giants' dreadful offense. Toney's high point came in a Week 5 game in which he racked up 189 yards, the seventh-most by a rookie in a single game during the last 20 seasons. Toney didn't see much goal-line work (zero TDs, two end zone targets) and was primarily used in the short area (6.4 aDOT), though he made up a ton of ground with the ball in his hands (6.0 RAC ranked 10th). Durability and New York's QB situation are concerns, but Toney has elite playmaking ability and a new coach in Brian Daboll. Target him as a flex with major breakout potential.
