News: 4 days agoToney rejoined the Giants on Tuesday after recently positive for COVID-19, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Spin: Toney missed the rookie reporting date last week when he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's back with his teammates Tuesday as veterans report to camp. The first-round pick figures to take most of his reps with the backups this summer, while Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton will handle most of the snaps with QB Daniel Jones.
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.
