Week 14: vs New York Giants - $3000
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Washington lost another quarterback to injury with Colt McCoy's fractured fibula last week. Mark Sanchez enters the starting lineup and struggled to less than five yards-per-attempt and added an interception in relief against the Eagles. The quarterback position is a severe limitation, but Washington is finally on the healthy track with passing game weapons as Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson returned to the lineup last week. The offensive line is also in shambles with season-ending injuries. Sanchez has been a middling quarterback in his career, posting as many interceptions as touchdowns. At his best, the Jets took the ball out of Sanchez's hands with a strong defense and run game, both of which are question marks with Washington this season. The Giants have struggled to generate pressure forcing a mere 19 sacks, good for second-fewest in the NFL. The effort against the Bears in Week 13 was arguably their best of the season with five sacks (previous high of three) and forcing three turnovers (second-best total of the season). This was against a backup quarterback in Chase Daniel, however, and an outlier game as the Giants recorded multiple sacks in only three games of the previous 11 contests. Big plays allowed have been the most glaring concern for the Giants, allowing the fifth-most passing plays of 20 or more yards on the season, but on the season this is a middle of the road secondary that has been propped up by being tied for the fewest passing touchdowns allowed this season. Grant Haley has been serviceable as a slot corner, but B.W. Webb and Janoris Jenkins have struggled with consistency on the outside. The Giants also struggle defending non-wide receivers which could lead to a decent matchup for Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson as they have allowed 83 yards or more to three of the last four tight ends they have faced and in the one game they did not allow 83 yards was last week in which they allowed 156 yards receiving to Tarik Cohen. This could be ever more in focus this week as Landon Collins who is the Giants best defensive player this season is out this week with a shoulder injury.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec - 1.9 points, $3000)
Michael Floyd had one catch for nine yards. He received an endzone target as well but a near sack threw the pass off target going directly into the air. Michael isn't a weekly contributor so his production usually fluctuates.
2018 Week 11 vs HOU (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec - 2.8 points, $3000)
Michael Floyd had three targets in this game and only came down with one for eighteen yards. As the passing game struggled in this game it would be difficult to make an impact as a 4th or 5th option.
2018 Week 10 vs TB (3 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec - 3.5 points, $3100)
Michael Floyd had very little impact on this game. He recorded two catches for fifteen yards. As a deep bench backup it is unlikely he was part of the gameplan versus Tampa Bay.
2018 Week 7 vs DAL (3 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec - 3 points, $3200)
Michael Floyd got more action today with a Paul Richardson out. He only had one catch for twenty yards. The passing game wasn't very productive today and didn't benefit second tier options.
