Warner's had a slight case of the picksies this year, throwing 5 INT to go along with his 8 TDs. He completed 32-of-41 passes for 276 yards and 2 TDs in Week 6 against the Seahawks. He's fifth in the league in completions and is racking up the stats. Against a tough Giants D, he'll still put up his numbers.
Hightower led the team with 13 carries for 32 yards and had a 2-yard touchdown run during the Cards 27-3 win against the Seahawks in Week 6. Hightower also had 4 catches for 26 yards. He has 3 TDs on the year and is a legit No. 2 fantasy RB.
Old Fitzie finally got over the century mark, gaining 100 yards on the nose last week on 13 catches (including his fifth TD). One just gets the sense that only now has he really gotten started. He is one of the most physically gifted players in the league and, without a doubt, is an must-start every week.
Like Fitzie, Boldin has yet to hit his stride this year. He suffered a high-ankle sprain during his 6-catch, 54-yard game against the Seahawks. Although he expects to be back, he may take a back seat to Steve Breaston against the GMen. He's a No. 3 fantasy option. Monitor that ankle.
Averaging 80 yards a game, Breaston may well be the best No. 3 WR in the league. He went for 77 yards on 7 catches against the Seahawks and expects to have an even better week if Boldin is less effective. He's a solid No. 2 option this week.
Manning had his worst game of the year, completing just 14-of-31 passes for 178 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT (and a lost fumble) in Week 6 at New Orleans. Expect him to bounce back at home. He's been a good starting option all week, and should revert to form against the Cards. He's a recommended start.
At New Orleans in Week 6, Jacobs rushed 7 times for 33 yards and caught one pass for two yards. Backfield mate Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 10 times for 48 yards. Ruh roh! Not good news for Jacobs' owner as he's averaging 3.6 yards a carry to Bradshaw's 6.2. He's still a (low-end) No. 2 fantasy RB, but for how much longer?
Bradshaw's been getting double-digit carries every game, averaging over 6.2 per carry. He had 10 carries for 48 yards and a TD. He's a low-end No. 2 fantasy option, but with the way RBs go down in this league, he's not the worst choice. If Jacobs gets dinged, he'd immediately be a top option.
Still leading the league in catches with 41, Smith came back to earth a little bit with a 4 catch, 44-yard performance. He's still among Eli Manning's favorite targets, being thrown to 6 times. He has become a must-start in all leagues but could be downgraded with another lackluster performance.
Manningham was targeted 9 times against the Saints but only pulled down 4 catches for 50 yards. He has almost 400 yards in 6 games with 4 TD and has become a decent low-end No. 2 or high-end No. 3 fantasy option.
Nicks went for a team-high 114 yards on 5 catches against New Orleans. It was the third consecutive game in which he scored a TD. His breakaway speed and big-play potential make him an interesting bye week replacement or waiver wire pickup.
Tynes is 15-for-18 on the year, leading the league in attempts and makes. He is always a good start. He hit two field goals, including a 49-yarder in Week 6 at New Orleans. Great start under any circumstances.
The Saints undressed what had been the best D in the league in the Giants. Expect another difficult test here against the potent offense of the defending NFC champs. The Giants D is always a good start and despite the shellacking, are still first in the league in YPG.
