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.

Second two-TD game in three weeks
WRNew York Giants
November 10, 2019
Slayton caught 10 of 14 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Slayton scored touchdowns of five and 39 yards in the second quarter, delivering his second two-score performance in the past three weeks. Sandwiched in between those performances is a one-catch, six-yard dud, as the 22-year-old wide receiver is still striving to find week-to-week consistency. Slayton makes for an intriguing pickup moving forward given the upside he's displayed recently, but his role could shrink dramatically if Sterling Shepard (concussion) is ready to make his return following the Giants' Week 11 bye.
