Week 12: at Washington Redskins

All QB vs WAS

FBG says: Good matchup. Eli Manning has had limited support all season long due to injuries throughout his receiving corps, but it hit a new level this past week when Sterling Shepard was unexpectedly ruled out due to a migraine. Without Shepard, Manning was left with a skeleton crew on offense as he spread the ball out between 10 different receiving options. Evan Engram was expected to make a big contribution this week, but he only managed to haul in one of his six targets for a paltry nine yards as he dropped a couple passes and negated a big gain with an offensive pass interference penalty. Engram broke a four-game touchdown streak last week as he had been one of the Giants' most consistent contributors on offense. Thankfully for Manning, Sterling Shepard is expected to be back in the lineup this week. The Redskins defense had a tough game last week as they let the Saints come back in the fourth quarter to force what would be an overtime victory, giving up a season-high 385 passing yards in the process. The Redskins are allowing an average of 249 passing yards per game, eighth most in the league. They have allowed the most passing yards and second most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks over the last three weeks. The play from their cornerbacks has been mostly solid, but the Redskins linebackers and safeties have really been the weak pieces of this defense. DeAngelo Hall, in particular, had a very tough game last week as he missed three tackles and single-handedly gave up over 60 yards and a touchdown. Of the 18 receiving touchdowns Washington has allowed, only eight of those have been by wide receivers with four coming from running backs (T-2nd most in the league) and six coming from tight ends (T-3rd most in the league). Shane Vereen has had a very quiet season, but he could have a shot at some upside in this matchup as he has been playing around 30-50% of the snaps in the past three weeks. Evan Engram, of course, will be in a good spot also due to how weak the Redskins have been against tight ends.
