Giants' Kadarius Toney (knee) a surprise PUP-list candidate

The Athletic's Dan Duggan believes that second-year wide receiver Kadarius Toney (knee) could begin the 2022 season on the PUP list.

What It Means:

Toney underwent what was initially reported as a minor cleanup surgery for his knee this offseason, but Duggan believes that the second-year receiver could be a candidate for the PUP list based on his workload in practices this spring. Toney will have several weeks to rehab before training camp officially begins, though, so this could blow over by the next time we see Giants players report.

Toney flashed immense upside in his debut campaign and possesses truly unique physical abilities, but was severely limited by multiple, separate injuries throughout the season. He is a popular second-year breakout candidate in fantasy this season and for good reason, but is also among the riskier investments in fantasy drafts. Our models currently project him for a WR48 finish in 2022.
