There are five huge games this Sunday. Who will come out on top?
Every team in the NFL will have reached their halfway point of the season by the time this weekend’s games are finished, which means we are about to be officially in the stretch run. And the timing couldn’t be better. There are several games this weekend that could set the tone for the entire second half.
There are some huge division battles, key tests for top teams, and a few last chances for teams hoping to remain the playoff race. Nothing will be settled this weekend of course, but a whole lot of things will become much clearer.
No Hakeem Nicks, no problem as Mario Manningham, Victor Cruz are primed for big day vs. Patriots
Hakeem Nicks is battling a hamstring injury that might keep him out of the New York Giants Sunday tilt at New England.
Even if Nicks was/is in the lineup, this is a start ’em if you’ve got ’em game at the receiver position for the Giants. That means if you were debating between Mario Manningham and Victor Cruz, both of them need to be in your starting lineup this week when Big Blue takes on the worst (or best) defense a fantasy receiver and quarterback can face through eight weeks this season.
Very bad news for the New York football Giants' running game and fantasy owners
Update: When first reported, it looked like Bradshaw could be out for a significant stretch. Now reports are surfacing that his foot injury is not that serious and that he may actually play this Sunday. Stay tuned.
Ahmad Bradshaw was having a pretty good fantasy season so far. While his week-to-week numbers haven't been that stellar, he has managed to find the end zone 6 times and has offset a lack of yardage with a few catches each week, making him an RB1 in PPR leagues.
