Fantasy Player Projections

 
New York Giants
Arrowhead Stadium | Sunday, October 04 | 1:00 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Giants 27, Chiefs 13
Kansas City Chiefs
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBEli Manning
170 pass yards, 1 pass TD
Manning seems to be developing an effective rapport with his young receivers. He's thrown a pair of touchdowns in back-to-back games and seems likely to make it three straight against the lowly Chiefs.
RBBrandon Jacobs
110 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jacobs shone against a hapless opponent in Week 3, and he'll benefit from a similar matchup in Week 4. There's no good reason not to start him.
RBAhmad Bradshaw
90 rush yards
The back end of New York's two-man rushing attack didn't find the end zone against Tampa Bay but figures to break through for a score any week now.
WRMario Manningham
5 rec, 55 yards
None of the Giants' receviers posted huge numbers against Tampa Bay because the ground attack was so successful. Beware of this, as mouth-watering as this week's Kansas City matchup may appear.
WRSteve Smith
5 rec, 50 yards, 1 TD
Smith remains the only player resembling a must-start among the Giants' youngish wideouts.
WRSinorice Moss
2 rec, 20 yards
Doesn't contribute frequently enough to warrant fantasy consideration.
TEKevin Boss
4 rec, 45 yards
Boss seems on the cusp of fantasy stardom, but occasional disappearing acts continue to compromise his value.
KLawrence Tynes
3 PATs, 2 FGs
You could do plenty worse, especially in light of the matchup.
Defense
2 sacks, 2 INT, 1 Fumble, 1 TD
The Giants have one of the most furious and aggressive defenses in the business. They managed to deliver a whitewash against Tampa Bay despite missing two of their front seven. A second straight shutout may be too much to ask, but expect big things from Big Blue at Arrowhead.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMatt Cassel
155 pass yards, 2 INT
Cassel didn't even look all that bad in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Eagles. But with Dwayne Bowe inactive, the quarterback was a sitting duck for Philly's exotic blitz packages. You can start him against the Giants if you're in a pinch.
RBLarry Johnson
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 55 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Johnson continued a gradual fade from fantasy relevance in Philadelphia: 19 carries for 38 yards and a lost fumble.
RBJamaal Charles
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 40 rush yards
Is he worth a start Sunday? Absolutely not. But Johnson's startling regression means Charles may be in line for an increased workload down the line.
WRDwayne Bowe
4 rec, 50 yards
Kansas City's top receiver, who sat out Sunday's game with a hamstring ailment, should be ready for Week 5.
WRBobby Wade
2 rec, 25 yards
A popular free-agent pickup, Wade paid immediate dividends with a cosmetic touchdown against the Eagles. But he's far from a sure thing. Only start in extreme circumstances.
WRMark Bradley
2 rec, 20 yards
Don't expect much (if anything) out of Bradley if Bowe plays. Heck, don't expect much even if Bowe is inactive again.
TESean Ryan
4 rec, 35 yards
Stay away.
KRyan Succop
1 PAT, 2 FGs
You can do plenty better off the waiver wire.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 Fumble
There's no set of circumstances where starting the Kansas City defense against the Giants makes sense from a fantasy point of view.
