Week 14: vs Dallas Cowboys
All TE vs DAL
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Giants defeated Dallas 20-19 back in Week One, and their wide receivers handled all the TDs for Eli Manning with Sterling Shepard (four targets for 3/43/1 receiving), Victor Cruz (four for 4/34/1) and Larry Donnell (two for 1/15/1) hauling in the six-point plays. Odell Beckham Jr. led the team in receiving that day (eight for 4/73/0). All told, Manning tossed 19/28 for 207 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -4 yards on the day.
Last week, the Giants lost 14-24 in Pittsburgh, with just 24/39 for 195 yards passing from Manning (two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -17 yards). Beckham dominated targets (16 for 10/100/0 receiving) but Rashad Jennings (six for 6/34/1) and Shepard (eight for 4/21/1) pulled in the TDs. The Giants' passing attack is trending downwards as they face teams with winning records.
Dallas' pass D averages 276.2 net yards allowed per game (29th in the NFL), with 20 scores given out vs. a mere four interceptions (next-to-last in the NFL) and 23 sacks (tied for 22nd in the NF) generated to date. From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Dallas has averaged 25.7 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (sixth-most in the NFL); and 28.3 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fifth-most); with 11.6 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fourth-most). This is not a top secondary in the NFL, despite the 33/47 for 231 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions (with three sacks for -22 yards) allowed to Minnesota last week.
This is a good matchup for Manning and company.
