Week 12: at Washington Redskins

All TE vs WAS

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Back in Week Three, the New York beat Washington 32-21. During the first clash, the Giants posted 23/32 for 279 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown by Eli Manning. Rueben Randle (seven targets for 7/116/1 receiving) and Odell Beckham Jr. (nine for 7/79/1) had the TD receptions in that game. Two weeks ago (New York had a Week 11 bye), Manning found Beckham (12 targets for 4/104/1 receiving) and Randle (four for 3/51/0) quite a bit against the Patriots, so he still has those guys around heading into the stretch run for the playoffs. Also contributing: Dwayne Harris (nine for 6/82/1), and Will Tye (seven for 5/56/0, in for Larry Donnell who had a nagging neck injury prior to declaring himself back to 100% healthy during the bye). The Giants should be in good shape for this divisional fight as they have been relatively healthy this year in this phase of the game. The Washington pass D is ranked 12th in the NFL averaging 234.1 net yards allowed per game, with 20 passing scores handed out over 10 games and just six interceptions during that span (tied for 22nd in the NFL). They are currently 27th in the NFL with 17 sacks. They are among the top-ten most generous with fantasy points in this phase over the past four weeks, with wide receivers earning 28.1 per game (three games, eighth-most in the NFL); tight ends seeing 6.2 (23rd in the NFL for that span); and quarterbacks gaining 24.1 (fifth-most in the league). Just last week Cam Newton smashed this defense for 21/34 yielding 226 net passing yards, five passing scores and zero interceptions thrown. Advantage, New York.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs WAS (3 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Fells made a few nice plays in the passing game but remains irrelevant in terms of fantasy as he shares tight end targets with teammate Donnell. Fells ran primarily short patterns against Washington and got his hands on short out patterns early in the game. Fells did make a big play downfield on a seam route after play action. Fells did an excellent job catching the pass one handed down the middle and dragging Redskin defenders for yards after contact. Fells disappeared after this play however as the Giants hit big plays with their receivers and continued to run the ball to help secure the win.

2015 Week 1 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)

Fells is a backup tight end for the Giants but competed well for targets with Donnell who has been unspectacular lately. Fells was used in the short passing game and showed good hands catching quickly thrown balls. He picked up key first downs for the Giants early but then somewhat disappeared the Giants needed bigger production. Fells is a reliable pair of hands for Manning but offers little else as an athlete and shouldn't be started in fantasy.
