Freeman will likely get his first start with the Vikings this week. It might be tempting to roll with him in a great matchup, but you may be better off just stashing him and watching how he performs first.
The Giants allow 19.1 fantasy points per game to running backs. Peterson will increase that average on Monday night.
Jennings had 10 targets last week, catching six of them for just 34 yards. The Giants are terrible against the pass, allowing the sixth most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Simpson caught four passes for 30 yards last week. He could develop into a bye-week option if he takes off with Josh Freeman.
Wright had just two targets last week. We'll have to wait and see if he meshes with Josh Freeman, but he should not be owned right now.
Rudolph had a huge game last week, catching nine passes for 97 yards and a score. I'd deploy him as usual this week.
Walsh had an uneventful day a week ago, kicking just a 23-yard field goal. I expect him to have a bit more action on Monday night.
The Vikings could be a sneaky play against Eli Manning and the mistake-prone Giants this week.
This is a great matchup for Manning, as the Vikings have allowed the third most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Dare I say Eli is a great play this week.
Jacobs ran roughshod over the Bears, picking up 106 yards and two TDs on 22 carries. That is the exeception, not the rule.
Nicks caught four passes for 70 yards against the Bears last week. The Vikings allow 7.5 YPA and have surrendered the fourth most fantasy points per game to receivers this year.
Cruz had four catches for 68 yards last week. He should be in store for a huge day against a Minnesota team that has surrendered the fourth most fantasy points to receivers.
Randle caught three passes for 75 yards and a TD against the Bears. I have him as a solid WR3 this week.
Myers had just one target last week, an overthrow from Manning that ended up going for an interception. He has failed to live up to the preseason hype.
Brown has now gone four weeks without a field goal. He has just six field goal attempts this year.
Zero takeaways, zero sacks, 27 points allowed last week. The Giants are one of the worst fantasy defenses in the league.
