Mario Manningham Week 12 Fantasy Update

New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) is questionable for the team's Monday Night Football game against the New Orleans Saints. That means that if you have a safer option on your Fantasy Football roster you should probably leave Manningham out of your lineup this week.

Manningham has been productive for the Giants this season, but has pretty much been surpassed as the team's No. 2 wide receiver by the electrifying Victor Cruz. Manningham, in his fourth year, has 34 receptions for the Giants in nine games, three of them for touchdowns. A season ago Manningham caught 57 passes, nine for touchdowns. His average yards per catch has dropped to 11.9 this season from a career-best of 15.7 in 2010.

If you happen to have Cruz, the fact that Manningham is questionable and the Giants are likely to be in a high-scoring shootout with the Saints Monday would make him a good play.
