Jalin Hyatt, the New York Giants’ third-round draft pick, is expected to make an immediate impact as a deep threat, though his role will probably not be substantial, according to The Athletic.
Fantasy Impact: Despite reservations about his all-around skills, Hyatt’s potential for explosive plays is undeniable. The Giants, who ranked last in the NFL for explosive pass plays in the previous season, hope to utilize Hyatt’s vertical burst to their advantage. Though his 2023 role might be limited due to a crowded veterans lineup and the need for further development, his potential for sporadic big plays could offer considerable fantasy value. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on him, especially in leagues that reward longer touchdowns. However, his limited route-running skills might affect his consistency, a crucial factor to consider for fantasy lineups.
