Mario Manningham Fantasy Projection: Don't Forget About Him

Have you forgotten about Mario Manningham, fantasy football owners? To tell the truth, that isn't really difficult to do at this point.

Manningham has not played the past two weeks with swelling in his knee. When he has played this season Manningham has been overshadowed by the Giants dynamic duo of the tremendous Hakeem Nicks and the exciting young playmaker Victor Cruz.

Those two get all the attention, but Manningham remains a good play if you have him. He is listed as probably for Sunday's game and practiced without difficulty this week. If you need a receiver don't hesitate to put the fourth-year player in your lineup.

Manningham has 34 catches in nine games this season, three for touchdowns. His 11.9 yards per catch average is down from the 15.7 yards per catch he averaged a year ago, but Manningham is still a guy who can make a big play at any time.
