New York Giants



Daniel Jones (Sit), Colt McCoy (Sit)


It looks like Daniel Jones could miss some time with a hamstring strain, meaning Colt McCoy should get the start this week. Colt only had ten attempts last week after Jones went down, but I don’t need to see more to know he won’t be a viable fantasy option this week. Fantasy managers would be better off looking elsewhere this week.


Running Backs

Wayne Gallman (Start, RB2)


Wayne Gallman has been pretty consistent over the last few weeks. He’s averaged 16.28 points per game over his last five and 18.5 over his past two. He also set a season-high in carries and yards last week. The Seahawks are allowing the tenth-most fantasy points to running backs but the third-fewest ground yards per game. Gallman should be capable of another RB2 performance this week, especially if the Giants continue leaning on him like they did last week.


Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Sterling Shepard (Flex), Darius Slayton (Low-end Flex), Golden Tate (Sit), Evan Engram (Start, TE1)


Sterling Shepard has seen a pretty consistent eight targets per game over his last five. I’m not usually very high on Shepard, but he should be a safe bet for flex production this week against the Seahawks. Seattle is allowing more fantasy points to wide receivers than any other team in the NFL this year.

Darius Slayton had a disappointing goose egg last week and only saw two targets. After the game, head coach Joe Judge said Slayton has some “bumps and bruises,” whatever that means. Still, the talk of some lingering injury and Slayton’s lack of involvement last week should scare most fantasy managers away this week. I likely wouldn’t have even listed Slayton as a flex this week if he wasn’t playing the terrible Seattle secondary.

Golden Tate hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant any fantasy consideration for now. He saw nine targets last week but only came down with four catches. He’s only averaged seven fantasy points over his past two games.

Assuming Evan Engram gets as much work as he did last week, he should be in line for another TE1 performance against the Seahawks. Engram had his best fantasy performance of the season last week with Slayton less active in the passing game, and it seems like that situation could continue for at least another week. Seattle has been capable against fantasy tight ends this year, but Engram should still have plenty of opportunities to reach TE1 status this week.


Seattle Seahawks



Russell Wilson (Start, QB1)


The Giants have been pretty good against fantasy quarterbacks this year, allowing the fifth-fewest points to the position so far this year. Russell Wilson has cooled down a bit after his red-hot start to the season, but fantasy managers aren’t likely to bench Russ any time soon. He’s still the overall QB3 on the season. New York has been mediocre in passing yards allowed, so I think Wilson will have plenty of chances to put up a respectable stat line this week. I’m still listing him as a QB1 this week.


Running Backs

Chris Carson (Start, High-end RB2), Carlos Hyde (Sit)


Chris Carson had fewer rushing attempts than Carlos Hyde last week but still put together a better fantasy stat line. Carson only had eight rushing attempts but was able to find his way into the end zone last week. One would assume Chris’s workload will grow as he gets closer and closer to full health. The Giants’ defense is allowing the fifth-fewest ground yards per game and the twelfth-most fantasy points to running backs. I believe Carson should have a pretty safe floor and finish somewhere around the high-end RB2 tier this week.


Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

D.K. Metcalf (Start, WR1), Tyler Lockett (Start, WR2), Jacob Hollister (Sit, Low-end TE2)


D.K. Metcalf was on beast mode last week with the most receiving yards and his second-best fantasy performance so far this year. The Giants have been pretty middle-of-the-road in terms of fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, so the match-up is pretty mediocre this week. Still, D.K. is sitting pretty in the overall fantasy WR3 spot right now and should continue his dominance against the Giants for another WR1 performance.

Tyler Lockett has been sort of playing second fiddle to Metcalf this year, but he’s still at the overall fantasy WR7 spot right now. Lockett has five single-digit fantasy performances this year to Metcalf’s two, but it’s very tough to bench the former, given his ability to “boom” any week. The match-up is pretty neutral this week, so I’m putting Lockett in the WR2 tier.

Jacob Hollister hasn’t been productive enough to warrant any fantasy consideration lately. He only has one game this season where he has achieved double-digit fantasy points. The fantasy tight end position has been barren this year, but you can still likely find a better option elsewhere.
