The Giants signed veteran Wide Receiver, Brandon Stokley, to fill in as their #1 slot receiver. Picked up by the Redskins in the free agency flurry this summer, Stokley turned them down because the roster was too crowded. Given Victor Cruz’s dropped balls last week, I think his experience should be a step up for the Giants. Also, remember that Stokley was a favorite target of Peyton Manning in Indy. Forget Cruz as a deep sleeper and keep your eye on Stokley over the next couple weeks, especially in PPR leagues.
As a side note, this move makes me question the health of Hakeem Nicks, who hyper-extended his knee in the game against the Redskins. He’s confident he’ll be available for Monday night’s game against the Rams, but I wouldn’t bank on it.
