Here is the Week 15 Fantasy Football Start 'Em/Sit 'Em advice when it comes to the New York Giants. Basically, when it comes to the Giants almost every productive offensive player deserves a place in your lineup. Avoid the defense at all costs, though.

START

Eli Manning (QB)
numberfire Projection: 20.76 completions, 245.46 yards, 1.78 TDs, 1.00 INTs, 15.88 Fantasy Points

Analysis: The guy is already over 4,000 yards passing and is on pace for better than 5,000. Enough said.

Ahmad Bradshaw (RB)
numberFire Projection: 11.92 carries, 47.63 yards, 0.28 TDs, 1.68 receptions, 11.76 yards, 0.02 TDs, 7.72 Fantasy Points

Analysis: He will have something to prove last week after being benched for half the game against Dallas for disciplinary reasons, then gaining just 12 yards on eight carries.

Brandon Jacobs (RB)
numberFire Projection: 4.58 carries, 17.81 yards, 0.12 TDs, 0.73 receptions, 5.33 yards, 0.02 TDs, 3.11 Fantasy Points

Analysis: numberFire may not like Jacobs this week, but I do. He is coming off his only 100-yard rushing performance of the season (19 carries, 101 yards, two TDs), and seems to have re-discovered his passion for punishing defenders.

Hakeem Nicks (WR)
numberFire Projection: 5.20 receptions, 79.21 yards, 0.56 TDs, 11.29 Fantasy Points

Analysis: One half of the league's best one-two punch at wide receiver.

Victor Cruz (WR)
numberFire Projection: 5.05 receptions, 69.40 yards, 0.44 TDs, 9.78 Fantasy Points

Analysis: The other half of that one-two punch.

Mario Manningham (WR)
numberFire Projection: 2.60 receptions, 37.36 yards, 0.26 TDs, 5.25 Fantasy Points

Analysis: The third wheel in the wide receiver group, but a very good third wheel.

Jake Ballard (TE)
numberFire Projection: 3.20 receptions, 37.82 yards, 0.34 TDs, 5.80 Fantasy Points

Analysis: Manning continues to look for Ballard in critical spots, and the big tight end keeps producing.

Lawrence Tynes (PK)
numberFire Projection: 6.15 Fantasy Points

Analysis: The Giants keep moving the football, which means Tynes is getting opportunities. He has been regularly cashing them in.
