vs
New York Giants
Arrowhead Stadium | Sunday, Sep. 29 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

New York Giants

    1. Eli Manning
    2. Eli
      Manning
      QB
    3. PASS YDS263
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    It doesn't get any easier for Manning this week, going up against the top-performing defense in the league thus far, according to Pro Football Focus.

    1. David Wilson
    2. David
      Wilson
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS26
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS13
    6. REC TD0

    Wilson ran for 39 yards on 11 carries last week and didn't catch a pass. He's the clubhouse leader for biggest bust through three weeks.

    1. Brandon Jacobs
    2. Brandon
      Jacobs
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS24
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Jacobs does not have a meaningful role in the offense and should not be owned in fantasy leagues.

    1. Hakeem Nicks
    2. Hakeem
      Nicks
      WR
    3. REC YDS84
    4. REC TD1

    Nicks got just one target last week and groused about his role after the game. Chances are he gets placated on Sunday.

    1. Victor Cruz
    2. Victor
      Cruz
      WR
    3. REC YDS72
    4. REC TD1

    When the entire offense gets shut down, there's not a whole lot a receiver can do. You have to start Cruz every week.

    1. Rueben Randle
    2. Rueben
      Randle
      WR
    3. REC YDS32
    4. REC TD0

    Randle's time to shine in fantasy leagues is coming now that byes have started, but he should be avoided this week.

    1. Brandon Myers
    2. Brandon
      Myers
      TE
    3. REC YDS47
    4. REC TD0

    Myers was able to play last week despite a rib injury, but caught just three passes for 33 yards. The Chiefs present him with another serious challenge.

    1. Josh Brown
    2. Josh
      Brown
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG0

    The Giants offense has underperformed this year, and at this point Brown should not be considered in fantasy leagues.

    1. New York Giants
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS0
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    After getting torched by Cam Newton and DeAngelo Williams, the Giants defense is not one you can start with any confidence.

Kansas City Chiefs

    1. Alex Smith
    2. Alex
      Smith
      QB
    3. PASS YDS246
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Smith played the role of game manager to perfection last week. He'll do a bit more as a playmaker against the Giants.

    1. Jamaal Charles
    2. Jamaal
      Charles
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS102
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS62
    6. REC TD1

    Charles totaled 172 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown last week and looms as a huge threat for the Giants.

    1. Dwayne Bowe
    2. Dwayne
      Bowe
      WR
    3. REC YDS89
    4. REC TD1

    Bowe didn't get his first target until the fourth quarter last week. It's a safe bet the Chiefs will try to get him more involved against the Giants.

    1. Donnie Avery
    2. Donnie
      Avery
      WR
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD0

    Avery had his biggest game as a pro last week, catching seven passes for 141 yards. It might put him on the fantasy radar, but he shouldn't be considered a starter.

    1. Ryan Succop
    2. Ryan
      Succop
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Succop drilled four field goals last week and is in for another big fantasy game against the Giants.

    1. Kansas City Chiefs
    2. PTS ALLOWED14
    3. SACKS5
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Chiefs turned in the most impressive defensive performance of the season to date in Week 3, shutting down the previously unstoppable Michael Vick. They look like a D you'll want to start regardless of matchup.
