News: Giants defensive back Jayron Hosley was one of three players to record an interception in Thursdays rout of the Panthers in Week 3, and his was the very first of his career. Hosley added three tackles in the game, as the Giants won, 36-7.
Analysis: The Giants are extremely thin and young in the defensive backfield, so Hosley should get plenty of chances to play as a rookie. He has 10 tackles in three games, and will need to establish himself as a reliable Fantasy option before owners consider him a worthwhile target in IDP formats.
News: The Giants added cornerback Jayron Hosley in the third round of the NFL Draft. The Virginia Tech standout had 59 tackles and three interceptions this past season, a campaign in which he was bothered by a hamstring injury and concussion issues. He's also been dealing with a drug issue -- he failed a drug test at the combine. Coach Tom Coughlin described Hosley as a competitive, feisty, physical player who many times has been matched against an opponent's top receiver. He said the team was aware of his drug issue and has spoken to him about it. "We believe we can work with him and he's willing to overcome any issues that he has," Coughlin said.
Analysis: The Giants compare Hosley to Adam "Pacman" Jones -- not because of his off-field issues but because he plays bigger and tougher than he is (5-foot-10, 178 pounds). We're not expecting him to be a productive stat machine, so Fantasy owners shouldn't spend a draft pick on him.
