Walter Thurmond: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Thurmond's first season with the Giants will end after Week 2, a disappointing development for New York's recently signed starting nickel cornerback. With Thurmond out, Trumaine McBride could fill his role moving forward, while Jayron Hosley (suspension) will be eligible to return in Week 5 to provide further depth to a retooled secondary.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Thurmond has started just eight games in four seasons due to injuries and a recent suspension, but when active, is one of the most effective nickel corners in the league. During his 2013 campaign, which was cut short due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, he played in 12 games and racked up 33 combined tackles, as well as a sack and an interception. Now fully reinstated, Thurmond will look to earn a starting job in the Giants' secondary.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Assuming the report is correct, with Brandon Browner already out with a groin injury, the Seahawks' cornerback depth will be taxed heading into Week 13's game against the Saints. To date, Thurmond has 31 tackles and a pick in 11 contests.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A fourth-round draft pick, Thurmond saw his 2009 season at Oregon cut short by a knee injury. If the knee holds up, Thurmond will back up one of the cornerback spots and be used in nickle and dime situations.
