Player Outlook
We aren't drafting Hyatt before Round 15 in redraft leagues and we aren't sure he'll earn a starting role in Year 2 with Malik Nabers, Wan'Dale Robinson, and Darius Slayton ahead of him. The good for Hyatt last year was his 109-yard outburst against the Patriots, his 16.2 yards per catch, and his 9.3 yards per target. But those efficiency stats were muted by the fact that the Patriots game was the only one all season where he earned more than five targets. We're more interested in stashing the 22-year-old in Dynasty leagues. He could be a Best Ball specialist in the right offense due to his big-play ability and blazing speed.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Bumps down depth chart

    Hyatt is expected to be the Giants' top backup wide receiver in 2024 following the team's selection of Malik Nabers with the No. 6 overall pick in last week's draft, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Hyatt injured his hamstring in the season finale against the Eagles, but he's presumably made a full recovery by now. He's coming off a rookie season in which he secured 23 of 40 targets for 373 scoreless yards over 17 games. He averaged a strong 16.2 yards per catch, but the number of catchable passes thrown his way were few and far between as a downfield threat. Darius Slayton is expected to open the season as a starter opposite Nabers, with Wan'Dale Robinson in the slot. The Giants would likely prefer to see Hyatt push Slayton for snaps.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Injures hamstring Sunday

    Hyatt (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Hyatt sustained a hamstring injury on a five-yard catch in the first half and will not return to Sunday's contest. He will finish his rookie season with 23 catches for 373 yards over 17 games.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Tallies 25 receiving yards Week 17

    Hyatt caught three of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams. After being shut out each of the past two weeks, Hyatt bounced back to some extent with his highest receiving yardage total since he exploded for 109 yards against New England in Week 12. It was still a modest performance for the rookie wideout, as he tied for fifth on the team in catches and ranked fifth in receiving yards. Hyatt will have a chance to put a positive final spin on his first NFL campaign next week in a home matchup against the Eagles.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Shut out in Week 16 loss

    Hyatt was not targeted in the passing game in the Giants' loss to Philadelphia on Monday. Hyatt logged 35 offensive snaps -- 56 percent of the team's total -- Monday, third-highest among Giants receivers. However, he didn't see the ball come his way a single time, marking the fourth time this season that he's failed to draw any targets. It was also the second straight week without a catch for the rookie, and he's accumulated just two catches for 13 yards over his past three games after flashing his potential with a five-catch, 109-yard effort against the Patriots in Week 12. Hyatt has been on the field enough to make an impact this season, but with his inconsistency magnified by poor quarterback play, he's been a non-factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Week 14 Waiver Priority List

    I'm hopeful that Hyatt can be a go-to guy for the Giants to close the season, and he's worth adding in deeper leagues for up to 5 percent of your FAB. Prior to the Giants bye in Week 13, Hyatt had five catches for 109 yards on six targets in Week 12 against New England. We'll see if Tommy DeVito or Tyrod Taylor (ribs) start at quarterback for the Giants in Week 14 against Green Bay, and Darren Waller (hamstring) is close to a return as well. But the Giants should focus on featuring Hyatt down the stretch, and he could make an impact for Fantasy managers in deeper leagues.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Week 13 Waiver Priority List

    The Giants are on a bye in Week 13, but I want to stash Hyatt in deeper leagues. I'm hopeful he can make an impact down the stretch for the Giants and Fantasy managers. In Week 12 against New England, Hyatt had five catches for 109 yards on six targets, and he could emerge as the best receiver in New York to close the year -- and maybe next season as well. Hyatt is worth adding for up to 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Week 13 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    The Giants passing game has been abysmal pretty much all season, and there really hasn't been much to get excited about here, especially since Darren Waller's injury. However, Hyatt put together the best game of his young career Sunday, leading the team in every receiving category for his first 100-yard game of the season. It's just one game, and his quarterback is still Tommy DeVito, so Hyatt certainly isn't a must-add option, especially with the Giants facing a bye in Week 13. But he heads into the bye week with some momentum and could be a late-season breakout.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: First 100-yard game of NFL career

    Hyatt caught five of six targets for 109 yards in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Patriots. Hyatt got free downfield for catches of 29 and 41 yards en route to a career high in receiving yards. Fellow deep threat Darius Slayton (neck) was active after being doubtful heading into Sunday's game but was limited to 16 yards on three targets while Hyatt capitalized on his increased role with the best game of his rookie season. The Giants' third-round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft (73rd overall) will look to build on this promising performance in Week 14 against the Packers following a Week 13 bye.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Good to go vs. Commanders

    Hyatt has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Washington, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Hyatt was placed in the concussion protocol after this past Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Cowboys, but he has recovered in time to face the Commanders in Week 11. The rookie wide receiver has a pair of catches over 40 yards among his 11 receptions this season, but Hyatt will be catching passes from third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito on Sunday.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Progressing through concussion protocol

    Hyatt (concussion) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Hyatt suffered a concussion this past Sunday at Dallas, and after kicking off Week 11 prep with no on-field work Wednesday, he made noticeable progress one day later by putting in some work. Still, he likely has multiple steps to take in his quest through the protocol for head injuries, the last of which will be gaining clearance from an independent neurologist. Hyatt will need to do so by Saturday in order to be available Sunday in Washington.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Misses practice Wednesday

    Hyatt (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of reports. Hyatt entered the concussion protocol in the second half of Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Cowboys, making his status for Week 11 against the Commanders uncertain. The rookie third-round pick will need to clear the five-step protocol before being allowed to resume game action.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Won't return Sunday

    Hyatt won't return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a concussion, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Hyatt went to the locker room in the second half of Sunday's matchup and will be unavailable down the stretch due to his concussion. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for next Sunday's game against the Commanders.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Posts another quiet effort

    Hyatt finished Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Raiders with two catches on five targets for 19 yards. Hyatt's five targets tied for second on the team, but those opportunities yielded limited production. The rookie speedster did at least manage to turn things around a bit after he failed to garner a target at all last week against the Jets, but Hyatt's role and performance continue to be volatile. He has failed to register a catch in four contests this season, but Hyatt also posted an 89-yard effort in Week 2 against Arizona and a 75-yard performance in Week 7 against Washington. Daniel Jones may have suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday, leaving the Giants' already struggling passing game potentially in the hands of rookie UDFA Tommy DeVito and/or veteran backup Matt Barkley. That doesn't help Hyatt's outlook, but even with Jones under center the young wideout hasn't been able to put up the type of consistent numbers that would make him a reliable fantasy asset.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Week 8 Waiver Priority List

    It feels like Hyatt is the next rookie receiver on the verge of breaking out, and I'm excited to see what he can do with more targets. In his past two games with Tyrod Taylor under center for the Giants, Hyatt has five catches for 96 yards on nine targets. His big-play ability was on display against Washington in Week 7 with two catches for 75 yards, and we'll see how Hyatt does once Daniel Jones (neck) is healthy. Hyatt has played at least 71 percent of the snaps in each of the past two games, and hopefully bigger stat lines will start to happen. He's worth stashing in all leagues for up to 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Week 8 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    The Giants probably need to do more to get Hyatt involved, because they desperately need what he brings to the table, which is downfield playmaking. He only had the two catches Sunday, but both went for 30-plus yards – and four of his nine catches overall have done so. The rest of the team? They've combined for two catches of 32 and 31 yards total. I can't say Hyatt is a high-priority add, or someone you're likely to be starting in Week 8 (especially with no teams on bye), but there's plenty of upside on an offense that is still absolutely desperate for someone to step up in the passing game.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Big-play threat in Sunday's win

    Hyatt caught two of five targets for 75 yards in Sunday's 14-7 win over the Commanders. The rookie caught passes of 33 and 42 yards while flashing the speed that caused the Giants to trade up in this year's draft to select him in the third round. Hyatt doesn't offer much more than the ability to stretch the field at this stage of his career, but four of his first nine NFL receptions have gone for 30 yards or more. Regardless of whether Daniel Jones (neck) or Tyrod Taylor is under center in Week 8, Hyatt could have a hard time making an impact against a stingy Jets secondary.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Stashes (WR Preview)

    Hyatt flashed in Week 6 and his speed gives the Giants a downfield element they are desperately missing. You can't start him with any confidence until he becomes a full-time player, but that's the logical next step with the way the Giants season is going.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Sees more work with minor impact

    Hyatt caught three of four targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Bills. Hyatt played on 73 percent of New York's offensive snaps, the highest mark of his career thus far. His three catches also were a campaign high, though he was able to turn the receptions into only 21 yards. The rookie looked like he could emerge as the Giants' much-needed deep threat when he caught two passes for 89 yards Week 2 against Arizona, but his other five receptions this season have gone for just 31 combined yards. While the increased snap count Sunday is an encouraging sign for his outlook going forward, the Giants' passing game as a whole has struggled this season, and Hyatt has yet to put up the type of production that should inspire confidence in fantasy managers.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Quiet again Week 4

    Hyatt caught both of his targets for 10 yards Monday in a Week 4 loss to the Seahawks. Hyatt was again mostly a nonfactor in the passing game, as his only two catches went for three and seven yards, respectively. If there's a positive takeaway for fantasy managers who roster the rookie wideout, it's that he tallied a season-high 27 offensive snaps, per Connor Hughes of, and was on the field more than fellow wideout Isaiah Hodgins for the first time this season. Hyatt flashed his big-play potential when he racked up 89 yards on two receptions in New York's only win so far Week 2 against Arizona, but he's also been shut out twice this season in addition to Monday's quiet performance. The very low weekly floor makes Hyatt difficult to hang on to in fantasy, though it may be worth giving him another week to see if the increased snap count becomes a trend as the Giants look to light a fire under what has been a mostly abysmal passing game thus far.

  • Giants' Jalin Hyatt: Gets no targets in Thursday's loss

    Hyatt didn't receive any targets against the 49ers in a Week 3 loss Thursday. Hyatt provided a boost to the Giants' passing game with two catches for 89 yards against Arizona in Week 2, but he didn't see a single ball thrown his way against San Francisco. This was the second time the rookie speedster has been shut out in receptions through three games this season, and he's yet to be on the field for more than 22 offensive snaps in any contest. With that context in mind, Hyatt isn't a reliable option in fantasy at this point in the campaign.
