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.

Makes three grabs in loss
WRNew York Giants
October 10, 2019
Slayton secured three of his eight targets for 32 yards in the Giants' 35-14 loss to the Patriots on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
The rookie couldn't quite replicate his 4-62-1 line from Week 5, but in a Giants passing attack that was missing both Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee), he checked in a distant second to Golden Tate in receiving yards. Slayton has seen at least five targets in three of the first four games he's suited up for, and with his above-average speed, he retains upside as a downfield threat any time he's on the field. He'll look to parlay his skills into more production when he faces an inconsistent Cardinals secondary in Week 7.
