Week 3: vs Washington Redskins
All RB vs WAS
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Rashad Jennings has a cast on his left thumb as of September 20, but is expected to play without it vs. Washington, according to mid-week reports. We'll see how his practice participation is later in the week - he sat out at the end of last week and missed some goal-line opportunities in the low-scoring win over New Orleans (16-13). Jennings had 13/27/0 rushing and 2/13/0 receiving during his time on the field vs. New Orleans, while Shane Vereen posted 14/42/0 rushing and 3/24/0 receiving - the Giants appear to be on the verge of drifting back into a running-back-by-committee as we enter the third week of regular season.
The Washington defense gave up three rushing TDs to Dallas last weekend (30/102/3) after DeAngelo Williams ran wild and Pittsburgh rang up 30/147/2 rushing against these guys two weeks ago. Through two games, Washington has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, with an average of 27.2. In more bad news, defensive tackle Kedric Golston (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, September 19, with a hamstring injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Matt Ioannidis will be called up from the practice squad to replace Golston - the defensive front is suffering attrition entering Week Three.
Advantage, New York
