Giants Stadium | Sunday, November 14 | 4:15 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Giants 31, Cowboys 17
190 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 2 INTEven playing from behind, Kitna mustered just 183 yards passing and threw two more interceptions to bring his total to six in his last two outings. The Cowboys are an unmitigated disaster at the moment. Stay away from Kitna until further notice.
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 55 rush yardsIf you have to own a Dallas running back, Jones is the one worth keeping due to his explosiveness and abilities as a pass-catcher. It's impossible to really recommend anyone in Cowboys' running game as the team continues to implode, however.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 10 rush yardsBarber is averaging just three yards a carry for the season, and really isn't worth consideration even in deeper fantasy formats, especially against the Giants.
4 rec, 50 yardsAustin had just two receptions for 16 yards last week. The Cowboys are a mess this season, and there's very little upside for any Dallas receiver as long as Jon Kitna is starting. Expect inconsistent returns from Austin going forward.
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDBryant caught nine passes on 10 targets Sunday, and continues to show flashes of a budding star. He has clearly passed Roy Williams on the depth chart. Note that it will be tough to predict his production going forward in a freefalling offense.
2 rec, 20 yardsWilliams has received just 10 targets in the Cowboys' last three games, compared to 26 for Dez Bryant. Williams is clearly the team's No. 3 receiver at this point, and doesn't have much value on an offense that is currently in crisis mode.
5 rec, 55 yards, 1 TDWith Jon Kitna under constant pressure against the Packers, Witten was forced to stay in and block. When he is free to run routes, he is a great fantasy option as a safety outlet. The Cowboys face another elite pass-rushing defense this week, however.
2 PATs, 1 FGBuehler has just 12 field goal attempts on the season, and isn't a very good option for the second half of the season unless the Cowboys make a massive turnaround on offense.
1 sackThe last time the Cowboys faced the Giants they gave up 497 yards of total offense. With head coach and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips out the door, don't expect any kind of cohesion on Sunday. Stay away from Dallas this week.
245 pass yards, 3 pass TDHis 17 passing touchdowns rank third in the league, making Manning one of the better fantasy quarterbacks in the league at the moment. He is definitely worth starting against an imploding Dallas defense.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 85 rush yardsBradshaw ran for 126 yards against Dallas when they faced off in Week 7, and that was before Dallas' complete meltdown this week following their loss to Green Bay. Bradshaw looks safe to keep in your starting lineup.
50 rush yards, 1 rush TDJacobs has taken a back seat to Ahmad Bradshaw, but he still looks very good despite averaging just 8.5 carries a game. He has scored touchdowns in four of his last five games, and faces an awful Dallas defense.
5 rec, 110 yards, 1 TDNicks has gone over 100 yards receiving in four of his last five games and has five touchdown catches in that span. He should remain in your starting lineup on a weekly basis, especially against Dallas this week.
5 rec, 65 yards, 1 TDHakeem Nicks has taken over as the team's No. 1 passing option, but Smith is still a solid fantasy play in PPR leagues. He has touchdowns in three of his last four games as well. He is definitely worth starting consideration against Dallas.
2 rec, 30 yards, 1 TDManningham is worth a flier if you still need a receiver to fill in on a bye week. He has 11 catches on 14 targets and two touchdowns in his last three games, and a matchup against a maligned Cowboys' secondary could not be better.
2 rec, 20 yardsWith so many other options in the passing game, Boss has largely been an afterthought in recent weeks outside of a short touchdown reception last week. He is tough to recommend, even if you still need a bye week replacement.
4 PATs, 1 FGWith just nine made field goals on 12 attempts this season, Tynes is on the low end of fantasy kickers. The Giants will move the ball against the Cowboys, but that doesn't necessarily translate into field-goal opportunities.
5 sacks, 2 INT, 1 FumbleThe Giants lead the league in giving up just over 250 yards of total offense per game this season. They have to be considered one of the league's best fantasy plays this week, especially after what Green Bay did to Dallas last week.
