Week 3: at New York Giants

All TE vs NYG

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Kirk Cousins is 5/17 for 34 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the red zone so far this year. Last season, he was 50-for-78 for 345 yards, 22 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone. On September 20, head coach Jay Gruden said Cousins still has the coaching staff's 'total faith' despite the rough beginning to the season. Cousins ranks third in the league in passing yards (693), but he has only one touchdown versus three interceptions so far this year. We'll see if the visit to divisional-rival New York sparks an improvement in Cousins - the top Washington wide receiver so far this season (PPR scoring) is Jamison Crowder, with 12/97/1 receiving (30th-ranked fantasy wide receiver in the land). Jordan Reed checks in at eighth among fantasy tight ends with 12/134/0 to his credit. The Giants' pass defense is currently 13th in the NFL averaging 237.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with just one passing score given out vs. zero interceptions and two sacks generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, the Giants have averaged 14.9 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (sixth-least in the NFL); and 18.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (10th-least); with 5.8 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (14th-least). This is a tough matchup for the visiting Cousins and company.
