The New York Giants and Carolina Panthers kick off Week 3 of the 2012 NFL season on Thursday night (8:20 p.m. ET/NFL Network).
Well, this is easy. If you have Eli Manning and you don't play him, you are nuts. He only passed for 510 yards and 3 TDs on Sunday. Play Victor Cruz at wide receiver, too. Cruz had 11 catches Sunday for 179 yards. Tight end Martellus Bennett is also looking like a good low-cost play.
Giants' running backs. Ahmad Bradshaw won't play due to a neck injury. First-round pick David Wilson is in the doghouse and not touching the ball very often due to ball-security issues. Andre Brown carried 13 times for 71 yards against Tampa Bay, the first real action of his NFL career. He is a risky play because there is only a one-week track record for him. Also sit wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (foot), who won't play four days after catching 10 passes for 199 yards.
Giants' wide receivers Ramses Barden and Reuben Randle. They will be the likely fill-ins for Nicks and third receiver Domenik Hixon (concussion).
