Manning threw for 235 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Washington last week. That feels like his ceiling.
Brown ran for just 35 yards on 14 carries last week, though he hit paydirt twice. Consider him an RB2 against the Chargers this week.
Cruz had six catches for 80 yards last week. He hasn't scored since Week 4, but I'm betting he gets back in the end zone against a San Diego defense that allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Nicks has been an utter disaster this season. There's too much at stake in the fantasy playoffs to depend on him.
Randle has provided the fantasy community with a handful of good games this year. That could happen again this week, as the Chargers allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.
Myers had five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown last week and has scored in two straight games.
Brown made his only field-goal attempt last week and is 18-for-20 on the season.
The Giants continued their improved play on defense. The Chargers are a very tough draw at home.
The Giants defense has played better of late, but Rivers is still a QB1 taking them on at home.
The Giants allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this year, making Mathews a low-end RB2 this week.
Woodhead is hard to trust against a Giants defense that allows the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Allen had eight catches for 106 yards last week. He's a strong play this week.
Royal missed last week's game and should not be trusted against the Giants.
Keenan Allen is the only San Diego receiver I trust against a Giants defense that allows the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.
Green has been a stud filling in for Antonio Gates, and should be started with confidence against the Giants this week.
Novak made his only field-goal attempt last week and is 23-for-26 on the season.
The Chargers are a fringe starting defense this week against the turnover-prone Giants.
