The New York Giants re-signed wide receiver Cody Latimer to an undisclosed deal on Friday. Latimer played in the first three games and the last two games of the 2018 season but just one of the 11 games in between in his first season in New York because of injuries. He battled a knee injury and also spent two months on Injured Reserve with a pulled hamstring. Latimer finished with only 11 receptions for 190 yards and one touchdown and also averaged 24.6 yards on five kickoff returns. He might have more opportunities to make noise in 2019 with Odell Beckham Jr. out of the picture, but Latimer still doesn't have much fantasy upside.
New York Giants tight end Evan Engram (hamstring) took part in the team's walkthrough on Wednesday but officially did not practice. Wide receiver Cody Latimer (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday and was activated from the Injured Reserve. Engram was active in Week 12 but didn't play at all after injuring himself during warmups. It's not looking good for his status in Week 13 against the Bears either, making him much too risky for fantasy owners even if he suits up. Rhett Ellison benefited last Sunday but would be a desperation TE2 if Engram sits. Latimer will help boost New York's receiver depth but isn't fantasy relevant.
The New York Giants placed wide receiver Cody Latimer (hamstring) and linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday. In corresponding moves, the Giants signed receiver Bennie Fowler, linebacker Ukeme Eligwe and cornerback Grant Hale and waived cornerback Donte Deayon. Latimer had been operating as the No. 3 wideout this year but hadn't been very involved on offense and wasn't in fantasy consideration. Russell Shepard should now work behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard, but he also should remain on the waiver wire.
