Week 9: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck is on an amazing tear through the NFL, with five games of 370 yards or more passing so far this season (including last week's 26/45 for 400 yards, with three TDs and two interceptions thrown at Pittsburgh) and seven-out-of-eight games with in excess of 300 yards passing. T.Y. Hilton is the sixth-ranked wide receiver in the land at the half-way point, with 53/866/2 receiving; Dwayne Allen is eighth among fantasy tight ends with 22/326/6; and Ahmad Bradshaw is fifth among fantasy running backs in the PPR paradigm with 76/371/2 rushing and 31/264/6 receiving. That's a studly collection of Colts, friends. The Giants' pass D is ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 262.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores offset by 11 interceptions generated to date (second-most in the NFL). However, Luck has thrown 22 pass TDs vs. nine interceptions this year - he's not especially prone to turnovers. The Giants have 13 sacks this season (21st in the NFL). Tony Romo hit this group for 17/23 yielding 267 net yards, three TDs and one interception (two sacks for -12 yards) two weeks ago; Nick Foles threw 21/34 for 245 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, with one sack taken for -3 yards back in Week 6. This is a great matchup for Luck and company on Monday Night Football during Week 9.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 8 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Whalen entered the game late and did have a few targets that he hauled in. He was able to find some soft spots in the middle of the field, and he and Luck have a strong connection. But unless more injuries occur in the receiving corps, Whalen will be limited to blowout scenarios.
