Week 15: vs Tennessee Titans

All TE vs TEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The big news for the Giants passing offense last week was the late Friday scratch of Odell Beckham Jr, who had been absent from the injury report for the past six weeks. Reports indicate Beckham's bruised quad is improving, but he will certainly be worth monitoring leading into Sunday. Eli Manning was just fine without Beckham last week, but that was primarily due to the Giants' success on the ground from Saquon Barkley. Sterling Shepard led the team in targets while Manning spread the ball out to seven different players with Evan Engram leading the pack in receiving yards. There have been no reliable Giants offensive weapons outside of Barkley and Beckham this season, but Evan Engram has been battling injury all season as he returned from a two-week absence last week. If Engram is healthy, he may warrant a heavier share of targets--especially in the unlikely case that Beckham remained inactive this week. Otherwise, look to Beckham and Barkley to continue as focal points for this passing offense. The Titans passing defense has looked better in recent weeks against suspect competition, including the likes of Cody Kessler and Josh McCown in their last two games. While this unit has been susceptible to some big games this season, they have done a decent job at limiting opposing quarterbacks to reasonable numbers due to solid enough play from their secondary and a strong pass rush from this defensive line. Adoree Jackson has been their best cornerback in coverage, and he should see most snaps against Beckham (if he plays). Beckham should have the advantage in this matchup, however, as Jackson has rarely shut down an opposing receiver this season. Saquon Barkley should be in for a significant challenge though, as the Titans have a very effective linebacker group that has excelled in pass coverage. Impressive play from young linebackers Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans combined with the veteran Wesley Woodyard have helped lead to the Titans giving up a league-low 26 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs.
