2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-21-2015 by Shawn Childs

Donnell was a nice surprise for Fantasy owners in 2014. He caught 63 of his 92 targets (68.4 percent) for 623 yards and six TDs. Over the first four weeks of the year, Larry was a big part of the Giants' game plan. He caught 25 of his 31 targets for 236 yards and four TDs. From that point on -- especially after his three-touchdown outburst in Week 4 -- defenses became aware of his presence. He caught only 38 passes for 387 yards and two TDs over the final 12 games. His final stat line will draw some interest in the Fantasy market, but his career path and college resume suggest his upside is limited. Overall, Donnell had only two games with more than 60 yards receiving and only four games with at least six catches. I don't see him as a top-12 TE this season. He should catch about 55 balls for 500-plus yards and a handful of touchdowns.

Jul-26-15 Giants TE Larry Donnell out of his walking boot

There is some good news and some bad news with Giants tight end Larry Donnell. The good news is, he's out of the walking boot he was in due to a bout with Achilles' tendinitis. He has been training and Alabama and is expected to participate in training camp this week. The bad news is that the injury is an old college injury that never really went away. This means there is a chance the injury could resurface or even give out at some point. As of now he is the clear TE1 on the depth chart.

Fantasy Analysis:

This definitely adds risk to Donnell's fantasy value. He had his ups last year but there were highs in the second half of the season. However, he definitely has value this season. He's currently being drafted as the TE24 right behind Charles Clay. Both guys are better than TE3s from a talent perspective. Donnell has a ton of upside being drafted this late. Just take notice of the health risk and don't reach for him.
