Player Outlook
With the Giants' addition of Drew Lock, DeVito is once again two injuries away from seeing the field. As such, he can be left on the waiver wire in all Fantasy leagues until he receives meaningful playing time.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Gets competition for backup gig

    DeVito will face competition from free-agent pickup Drew Lock for the top backup job behind starting quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) in 2024, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. According to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, Lock is receiving a one-year, $5 million deal, an investment that likely signals that the Giants are counting on him to win the No. 2 role over DeVito, a 2023 undrafted free agent. As a rookie last season, DeVito enjoyed a brief stretch in the spotlight following Jones' season-ending ACL tear, but he was replaced by a healthy Tyrod Taylor under center to close out the campaign. As it stands, DeVito could compete with Lock for the No. 2 role this offseason, but it's also possible the Giants add another name to the quarterback room in April's draft, where they hold the No. 6 overall pick.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Gets cameo in Week 18 win

    DeVito completed both of his pass attempts for 14 yards in Sunday's 27-10 victory versus Philadelphia. Tyrod Taylor started for New York for the second straight week, but DeVito took over for a series in the first quarter after the former suffered a thumb injury. DeVito completed a five-yard pass on that drive but wasn't able to lead New York to a first down, and Taylor returned for the team's next offensive series. DeVito got one more look in the third quarter and logged a nine-yard completion on his final pass attempt of the campaign. The rookie QB finished the season having completed 64.0 percent of his 178 pass attempts for 1,101 yards and an 8:3 TD:INT while rushing 36 times for 195 yards and a touchdown over nine games, including six starts. DeVito's opportunity to play this season was largely a result of injuries -- Daniel Jones tore the ACL in his right knee Week 9 and was lost for the remainder of the year, and Taylor sat out Weeks 9-14 with an injury to his rib cage. That said, DeVito provided a spark (and a good underdog story) at times after being pressed into action, and he has a strong chance of working as Jones' backup next year with Taylor a free agent and likely set to land elsewhere.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Benched at halftime

    DeVito completed nine of 16 passes for 55 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions before being benched at halftime in Monday's 33-25 loss to the Eagles. DeVito struggled significantly Week 15 and couldn't shake that heading into Monday's divisional matchup. He didn't turn the ball over but failed to push the ball down the field, which resulted in his longest completion going for only 14 yards while averaging just 3.4 yards per attempt. As a result, he was benched in favor of Tyrod Taylor, leaving the Giants' quarterback situation for a Week 17 matchup against the Rams ambiguous.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: To remain starter in Week 14

    Coach Brian Daboll announced Tuesday that DeVito will be the Giants' starting quarterback Monday against the Packers, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. In the wake of the Giants' Week 13 bye, the team designated Tyrod Taylor (ribs) for return from injured reserve Monday, raising some questions about who may be under center for the team in Week 14. DeVito will continue to be New York's No. 1 QB, at least Sunday, even if Taylor is activated from IR ahead of the contest. In three starts prior to the bye, DeVito completed 49 of 78 passes (62.8 percent) for 523 yards, six touchdowns and one interception, rushed 13 times for 54 yards and fumbled twice (one lost).

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Taking two-game win streak into bye

    DeVito completed 17 of 25 passes for 191 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Patriots. He added six rushing yards on five attempts and lost one of two fumbles. After throwing three touchdowns in his first NFL win the previous week, DeVito came out hot with 57 yards on his first three passes, but he also turned the ball over to end the Giants' first drive just outside the red zone on a botched handoff to Wan'Dale Robinson. Neither offense got much going, but DeVito broke a scoreless tie just after the two-minute warning in the first half with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Hodgins, prompting the New Jersey native to break out his signature celebration. After New England tied the game in the third quarter, a fourth-quarter Randy Bullock field goal followed by a miss from Patriots kicker Chad Ryland led to DeVito's second consecutive win. Given DeVito's momentum heading into a Week 13 bye, he'll likely remain the starter under center in Week 14 against the Packers, even with Tyrod Taylor (ribs) eligible to return at that point.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Three TDs in first NFL win

    DeVito completed 18 of 26 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-19 win over Washington. He added seven yards on one rushing attempt. DeVito notched his first NFL win in his second start and fourth appearance as the Giants' recent success against the NFC East rival Commanders continued. The 25-year-old rookie capped New York's third drive with consecutive 24-yard passes to Darius Slayton and Saquon Barkley, the second of which went for a touchdown to open the scoring. DeVito added a 40-yard touchdown pass to Slayton in the second quarter and finished the first half with 189 passing yards. The passing game cooled down in the second half as Barkley took over on the ground, but DeVito's five-yard touchdown pass to Barkley gave the team a cushion in the fourth quarter before a pick-six by New York's defense in the final seconds sealed the victory. DeVito will likely remain the starter in Week 12 against the Patriots, as Tyrod Taylor (ribs) isn't eligible to return from injured reserve until Week 14 versus Green Bay.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Dealing with shoulder issue

    DeVito was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice by a left shoulder injury, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. DeVito has appeared in three consecutive games for the Giants, including his first career start this past Sunday in Dallas. The results have been mixed, as he's completed 31 of 54 passes (57.4 percent) for 260 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions and rushed 15 times for 70 yards and one more score. With a health concern in tow, DeVito now will have two more chances this week to get back to full participation before the team potentially gives him a designation ahead of Sunday's game at Washington. At the moment, Matt Barkley is the only other quarterback on New York's active roster, while Jacob Eason resides on the practice squad with Daniel Jones (knee) and Tyrod Taylor (ribs) on injured reserve.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Set for another start

    Giants head coach Brian Daboll said Wednesday that DeVito will start Sunday's game against the Commanders, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. DeVito was severely outmatched during New York's 49-17 loss to the Cowboys in Week 10, a game in which he threw for just 86 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. On a positive note, DeVito put some scrambling ability on display (seven carries for 41 yards), and with few attractive alternatives on hand, the Giants will give the undrafted rookie out of Illinois at least one more chance to start. Fantasy managers won't want to consider DeVito more than an emergency pivot option in leagues that start multiple quarterbacks, however.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Takes over for injured starter

    DeVito completed 15 of 20 pass attempts for 175 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while rushing four times for 17 yards after taking over for Daniel Jones (knee) in the first half of Sunday's 30-6 loss to Las Vegas. Initial reports suggest that Jones tore his ACL after going down on the first play of the second quarter in his return from a neck issue that held him out of last week's loss to the Jets, as reported by Ian Rapoport and Mike Garofolo of NFL Network. DeVito took over under center after being signed from the team's practice squad earlier in the week. The undrafted free agent out of Illinois performed adequately given the circumstances, but it did not result in a standout fantasy performance. Assuming Monday's MRIs confirm that Jones will be sidelined for an extended period, DeVito could be the de facto starter against the Cowboys next Sunday with primary backup Tyrod Taylor (ribs) already on IR. Veteran Matt Barkley -- who is currently on New York's practice squad -- could also be an option if the Giants do not bring in competition from outside the organization.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Back to practice squad

    DeVito reverted to the Giants' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. DeVito entered Sunday's game against the Jets in the second quarter after Tyrod Taylor went down with a rib cage injury. While DeVito eventually played 50 of 75 offensive snaps, he almost primarily was a handoff artist, finishing Week 8 with minus-1 yard on 2-for-7 passing and four carries for 12 yards and one touchdown. As for the backfield, Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida combined for 41 rushes for 141 yards. There's a chance DeVito will be called upon to start Week 9 at Las Vegas, with Taylor considered week-to-week, but Daniel Jones, the Giants' starting signal-caller when healthy, was cleared for contact Sunday, so he may get the nod if the team deems him able to handle the rigors of game action.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Barely throws after Taylor injury

    DeVito completed two of seven passes for minus-1 yard while rushing four times for 12 yards and a touchdown after replacing Tyrod Taylor (ribs) in Sunday's 13-10 overtime loss to the Jets. DeVito was thrust into action after Taylor exited in the second quarter. The undrafted rookie out of Illinois led an 11-play, 75-yard touchdown drive to open the third quarter on which he didn't complete a pass, as a pair of unnecessary roughness penalties on the defense put DeVito in position to run in a go-ahead, six-yard touchdown. In fact, DeVito's first completion didn't come until overtime with the Giants employing a run-heavy approach in hopes of running out the clock before the Jets could tie the game. Daniel Jones (neck) hasn't suited up since Week 5, and if neither Jones nor Taylor are able to play in Week 9 against the Raiders, DeVito could be called upon to make his first NFL start.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Set to back up Taylor again

    The Giants elevated DeVito from the practice squad Saturday. It's the third straight week DeVito has been called up, with Daniel Jones (neck) ruled out for Week 8. DeVito will serve as the backup to Tyrod Taylor in Sunday's contest against the Jets.

  • Giants' Tommy DeVito: Promoted Saturday

    DeVito was elevated to the Giants' active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. DeVito's elevation hints that quarterback Daniel Jones won't be available for the second consecutive week. The 25-year-old DeVito signed with the Giants after going undrafted this past offseason, and he'll likely back up Tyrod Taylor during Sunday's contest.

  • Tommy DeVito: Joins Big Blue's practice squad

    DeVito signed with the Giants' practice squad Wednesday, Bob Brookover of NJ.com reports. DeVito signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois in April. The New Jersey native will stay close to home as he develops on New York's practice squad.
