Week 3: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
FBG says: Good matchup. Mercifully, the Giants opted this week to remove Eli Manning from under center. They'd reached a breaking point: over his last 10 games, Manning had averaged just 7.0 yards per attempt and thrown 16 touchdowns. With a weakened arm and no tools left to beat the pass rush, hesimply lacks any dynamic skills at this point. That's why the offense is currently made up almost entirely of low-impact slot specialists. Rookie Daniel Jones will take the reins starting this Sunday, and he's fresh off a fantastic preseason that saw him complete 85% of his throws. He's big-armed and mobile, offering far more creativity than Manning ever did. Perhaps he'll catch the NFL napping on him for a few weeks, generating big plays on instinct outside the pocket. Still, he's a relatively green rookie leading an offense that lacks firepower. Week to week, his best-case scenario is a high-volume day full of check-downs to explosive youngsters Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley. When that happens, both become high-level producers capable of winning fantasy weeks. Engram has caught 17 of his 22 targets thus far, while Barkley is capable of turning any short catch into something special. Sterling Shepard, if cleared by the concussion protocol, will provide another reliable set of hands from the slot. But beyond Engram and Barkley, there's no reason to prioritize this passing game in any fantasy format. The Tampa Bay pass defense remains one of football's most vulnerable. With little turnover from last year's bottom-tier group, they're still allowing more big plays than they should. The outside coverage unit remains shaky at best, and a lack of communication inside leaves tons of run-after-catch room. On Thursday night, Greg Olsen's two long scampers down the seam served as shining examples of this unit's shortcomings. Cam Newton totaled 324 yards, even leaving a few misfires on the table. Vernon Hargreaves remains hit-or-miss in coverage, and he gave up a number of plays to D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel last week. He recorded 12 tackles on the night, which is never a good sign for a cornerback. The pass rush has improved, with youngsters Shaquil Barrett and Vita Vea bending the pocket much more than was seen last year. But until they can be trusted to hold coverage, this will continue to be a plus fantasy matchup. Even the Giants' thinned-out receiving corps enjoys something of an advantage here.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 2 vs BUF (5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer didn't manage much in this game and was forced to leave in the second half due to a concussion he sustained on a big hit. The Giants and Manning struggled to connect downfield and this is something Latimer can excel but it didn't happen on Sunday. Manning missed him on a comeback play where he was wide open. Latimer made a nice grab in traffic on a curl route. His day ended on a sour note however as he took a big hit in the second half. Latimer got the first down on a nice slant play inside on fourth down but the defensive back hit his head awkwardly. Latimer left the game straight away and did not return.
2019 Week 1 vs DAL (8 / 3 / 74 / 0 rec)
Cody Latimer made some explosive plays for the Giants on Sunday and looked like a real threat at times. He made a terrific one handed grab along the sideline, securing it in bounds and getting away from the defense for some extra yards. Latimer did an excellent job keeping the play alive for Manning, getting free in the secondary and giving Manning a massive window to throw into along the sideline for a big play. Manning tried to hook up with Latimer on a few other occasions but the defense did an excellent job in coverage, not leaving much separation. Latimer has upside with his explosive play but the consistency is unlikely to be there as a fantasy option.
