News: 4 days agoToney has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Spin: The report notes that Toney, who the Giants selected 20th overall in the 2021 draft, is currently following NFL COVID protocols by isolating. While the wide receiver is away from the team -- whose rookies reported for training camp Wednesday -- he'll participate in meetings remotely.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Toney was selected by the Giants with the 20th overall pick of April's draft. The Florida product is a 5-foot-11, 193-pound slot receiver oft utilized in a gadget role with the Gators. His 6.7 aDOT since 2018 is one of the lowest in this year's class, and his overall volume was limited by suspension and multiple injuries. He did, however, catch a class-high 90% of his catchable targets and posted a strong 8.5 RAC during that span. Toney's quickness and RAC jump off the page, and he has the physical tools, explosiveness and hands to emerge into a star in the pros. He does have a bit of a crowded path to rookie-season targets, however, with Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton in the mix at WR, and Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley also ticketed for work. Toney is a logical late-round flier.
