Kadarius Toney had a tough start with the New York Giants because of a leg injury that cost him time in training camp.

Fast-forward to the start of Week 4, and the wide receiver has just four catches on five targets for 14 yards.

Some of this is just bad luck on the injury front. And a good amount of the blame is on an offense that isn’t targeting its first-round selection more. It also doesn’t help that Toney seemed to speak out about the issue after a Week 2 loss.

Toney did see his highest snap count in Week 3 (46), but quarterback Daniel Jones targeted him just three times while giving four others five or more targets. The rapport just isn’t there, though that could change—and he’s absolutely flashed potential—but results haven’t been good.

Grade: D
