Hello, Fantasy Football players! Here is your NFL Week 9 start/sit advice for the New York Giants, who take on the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Start

Eli Manning -- The calendar has turned to November, which hasn't been Manning's favorite month during his career. Still, if you have him you have to play him.

Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks -- Cruz has 52 catches, fourth in the league, and seven touchdowns. Nicks is getting healthier each week and belongs in your lineup.

Ahmad Bradshaw -- Not as effective the past couple of weeks as he had been, but he is the Giants' workhorse and the Steelers might be vulnerable to the run.

Andre Brown -- Not getting many carries (personally, I think he isn't getting enough carries) but the Giants are using him in goal line situations. He can get you touchdowns, if not a lot of yards.

Martellus Bennett -- The best receiving tight end the Giants have had since Jeremy Shockey.

Sit

Domenik Hixon (and other Giants' receivers) -- With Nicks and Bennett healthy there aren't as many passes for Hixon, Ramses Barden and Reuben Randle.
