The New York Giants face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday (1 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium). For you Fantasy Football players, here is a look at which Giants to start or sit this week.

START

Eli Manning and Victor Cruz -- No reason to to start either player. Both are stars, even though they didn't have their best game sin Week 1. If you have Manning on your roster, I doubt you have a better quarterback. Cruz dropped three balls in Week 1, but he still caught six. Play him and he will pile up points for you.

SIT

Ahmad Bradshaw and David Wilson -- Bradshaw had 78 yards last week on 17 carries, while Wilson got benched after two carries and one costly fumble. The Buccaneers surrendered only 10 rushing yards Sunday against a good Carolina Panthers' running attack. The Giants, bluntly, don't run the ball well. Avoid these guys.

YOUR CALL

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is a star, one of the best receivers in the game. He caught four passes in Week 1, but he is clearly not 100 percent. He won't hurt you, but he may not give you what you are hoping for -- especially if you are paying a lot to have him in your lineup. Tight end Martellus Bennett (3 catches, including one for a touchdown) could be a good low-cost play in a weekly Pick 6 type league.
