Latimer caught four of five targets for 33 yards during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Latimer saw an increased role on offense with Sterling Shepard (concussion) sidelined, and he turned that opportunity into modest production. When Shepard eventually returns to the starting lineup, Latimer figures to resume his usual depth role.
Latimer failed to bring in his only target during Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots.
Even with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee) sidelined, Latimer operated as an afterthought in New York's aerial attack. The 2014 second-round pick isn't worth fantasy consideration in all but the deepest of leagues.
Latimer could play a key role on offense in Thursday's game against the Patriots, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
The Giants will be without two of their top targets in the passing game Thursday in Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee), not to mention do-everything running back Saquon Barkley (ankle). As a result, Latimer will be one of the depth skill-position players who will likely be counted for added work in the passing game to compensate for the absences. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Rhett Ellison are also expected to see upticks in targets from quarterback Daniel Jones.
Latimer failed to bring in his lone target during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Vikings.
Latimer was heavily involved in New York's offense during the first two weeks of the season -- he hauled in six catches for 104 yards across that span -- but he's now gone two straight games without a catch. However, with Sterling Shepard (concussion) in danger of missing time, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, Latimer appears to be facing similar opportunity to what he saw during the first weeks of the season. If Shepard is forced to sit out Thursday's game against the Patriots, Latimer will likely mix in with Darius Slayton for key snaps at the wide receiver position behind Golden Tate.
