Here is your weekly New York Giants version of Fantasy Football Start 'Em/Sit 'Em for Week 16.


Eli Manning (QB) 
numberFire Projection: 22.35 completions, 256.33 yards1.72 TDs, 1.08 INTs, 15.82 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Had an off game against the Washington Redskins. That is no reason not to play him.

Ahmad Bradshaw (RB)
numberFire Projection: 7.50 carries, 32.13 yards, 0.30 TDs, 2.46 receptions, 22.06 yards, 0.06 TDs, 7.59 Fantasy Points

Analysis: This a very "soft" start recommendation for Bradshaw. The Giants rely on the pass to create their offense, so I don't know what to tell you about how many opportunities Bradshaw will get.

Brandon Jacobs (RB)
numberFire Projection: 7.11 carries, 33.47 yards, 0.26 TDs, 0.43 recpetions, 2.97 yards, 5.22 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Like Bradshaw, this is a "soft" vote for starting Jacobs. He has been running well the past three weeks, but his opportunities are going to be limited. Bradshaw started against Washington.

Hakeem Nicks (WR)
numberFire Projection: 5.72 receptions, 78.44 yards, 0.54 TDs, 11.20 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Dropped two touchdown passes against Washington, but don't let that stop you. Nicks is one of the league's most productive receivers.

Victor Cruz (WR)
numberFire Projection: 3.85 receptions, 54.03 yards, 0.49 TDs, 8.32 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Cruz has to play. He's been a great target for Manning all season.

Lawrence Tynes (PK)
numberFire Projection: 7.14 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Nothing wrong with having Tynes as your kicker


Mario Manningham (WR)
numberFire Projection: 2.80 receptions, 42,89 yards, 0.27 TDs, 6.05 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Manningham has slid to No. 3 among Giants receivers, and he made a bad mistake a week ago cutting off a route that led to an end zone interception.

Jake Ballard (TE)

Analysis: You have to sit him. I didn't even bother with his projections because the Giants have already said they do not expect him to play Saturday against the New York Jets due to a knee injury. He may be done for the season.
