Instant Fantasy Analysis - WR Kadarius Toney, Giants

Recommended Posts

Team Fit: Back during the Detroit Pistons' "Bad Boys" heyday, they had a sixth man named Vinnie Johnson. His nickname was "The Microwave." That moniker would fit nicely for Toney, who not only heats up fast when he gets the ball but can also cook a defense just as quickly. The ease at which he is able to start and stop as well as create separation is unreal. Toney has legitimate upside in terms of developing as a route-runner. However, it also has to make talent evaluators a bit upset that Florida used to more as a gadget player early in his college career; the Gators did him an injustice by not developing that part of his game more. He also possesses dependable hands, as Pro Football Focus credited him with only three drops on 123 catchable targets in his college career. On the downside, Toney has dealt with multiple shoulder injuries and had some off-field issues early on at Florida that to be accounted for and/or explained. General managers and scouts are the only ones that have answers to those questions and the risk they feel Toney represents, but his on-field exploits suggest he could help take an offense from good to great with his ability to play in space and turn a short throw into a touchdown on just about any play. In New York, he gives the offense a second playmaker (Saquon Barkley being the other) that is nearly impossible to game plan for and should draw significant attention away from Kenny Golladay.

What does it mean in redraft? WR4 with immediate WR3 upside. Toney is a smaller version of Deebo Samuel and should be used in similar ways. It's up to Daniel Jones and OC Jason Garrett to use him that way.

Where should I expect him to go in my rookie drafts? Check back next week.

It sounds like you don't consider Golladay to be a playmaker on offense...?

No ... Barkley and Toney are the "nearly impossible" matchups. Golladay is obviously a playmaker or else I would not have specified that Toney would be drawing "significant attention" from him.

Not what they needed.

Agreed. But I can't blame Gettleman for going Toney if he was looking for a way to spark the offense.

I imagine he didn't see Kwity Paye as the answer to the Giants' pass rush.

So you say no, you don't consider Golladay a playmaker, and then you say Golladay is obviously a playmaker.

And that brings me back to DOH!

Again, don't try to make something out of nothing. Golladay is the alpha right now. That is not in question. There are just other WRs like him across the league. Not many, but a few.

Saquon and Toney are unique talents that are matchup nightmares. Hopefully, this help the Axe Elf sleep better at night and keeps him from reporting me to the chairman of the Golladay Fan Club.

Mr Jones as been given the tools to have a very productive season, and to prove he’s their Qb going forward. 

Nice pick.

As a Giants fan I’d much prefer Toney or really anyone and the two 2022 1st and 4th rounders they now possess. Next year’s draft is considered to be stacked and there are plenty of good guards still on the board in this one. Wyatt Davis, Dickerson, Meinerz, etc...

I was just trying to figure out what you were saying--and making sure that you  were indeed saying what you thought you were saying--as you seemed to not think Golladay was a playmaker in your initial post, and then appeared to contradict yourself in the second one.  But your Golladay esteem isn't of any real import to me; I was just investigating your point.

An IOL would've been nice but watching these plays makes everything else feel ok. The second clip is the one that has me giddy, like a video game move!

That's what they said about Kamara, and basically every college prospect. Devonta Smith won't be that wide open in the NFL, et.al....
