2019 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 171st overall pick in the 2019 draft, Slayton is an athletic prospect that could work his way into the No. 3 receiver role. At 6-2, 190, Slayton has decent size and 4.39 40 speed. He's also athletic -- his 40.5-inch vertical and 135-inch broad jump are both elite -- but journeymen Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler also are in the mix. Even if Slayton were eventually to win the role, he'd still be fifth in the passing-game pecking order behind Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate (suspension), tight end Evan Engram and tailback Saquon Barkley.

Good to go Thursday
WRNew York Giants
August 22, 2019
Slayton (hamstring) will play in Thursday's preseason contest against Cincinnati, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The Giants will sit Sterling Shepard (thumb), which will likely leave some work for Russell Shepard and Slayton behind Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler, although tight end Evan Engram seems set to play Thursday as well. Slayton hasn't appeared in the preseason yet, as he missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury.
