As the 2024 NFL campaign approaches, another notch in the belt loop has taken place, as mandatory minicamp passed for the New York Giants. While much of the focus has been on the play of wide receiver Malik Nabers, and the question marks pertaining to quarterback Daniel Jones, there’s much more to uncover for New York.

The next time the Giants get back at it will be training camp, and that’s when the true position battles will begin for the team. In the meantime, it’s easy to point out which players have seen their stock fall over the last week for the franchise. Here’s four of them staring us in the face. 

4. WR Darius Slayton

When the Giants drafted Malik Nabers, the writing was on the wall for Darius Slayton. He likely would no longer be the team’s top receiving choice, after fighting his way into the good graces of Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen over the last couple of seasons. 

Outside of Nabers, the future of the Giants receiving corps is clear — the former LSU star will lead the way, with Wan’Dale Robinson and Jalin Hyatt filling the gaps. That leaves a limited amount of playing time for Slayton, maybe not in 2024, but beyond, it becomes murkier with each season. 

Over the last week, while Nabers was making highlight-reel catches, Slayton was sitting on the sidelines, after suffering an apparent injury on Tuesday. The best ability is availability, and Slayton wasn’t able to practice, and was forced to watch the new Giants trio go viral for their head-turning plays in the meantime.

Alas, Slayton could very well shock Giants fans once again, and pace the team’s wide receiving corps. However, with as much talent as New York has added to the group over the last year and change, he’ll be hard pressed to do so. With that, his stock is falling, even if it’s not particularly anything he could help.
