We’ve made it! Football is back, and with that comes the over analyzing of the preseason, trying to find any advantage we can for our upcoming drafts. Many fantasy champions are made in the preseason. From analyzing rookies to scoping out all of the off-season moves, I will try to help you prepare as well. This series has to do with fantasy trends from this weeks bevy of preseason games. I hope you’ve enjoyed my rundowns of the preseason games! Stayed tuned for breakdowns of every preseason game here.
Indianapolis Colts vs New York Giants
- The Giants can’t seem to catch a break. Everything I have to list for the Giants is negative and it’s not looking good, ,at least so far. Eli Manning went 1 of 7 last night for only 6 yards. Manning made horrible throws all night. He did have one nice deep pass to Victor Cruz, but that was negated by penalties. For now Eli is undraftable, as unbelievable is that is to say.
- Victor Cruz is now someone to stay away from. Eli Manning can’t stay upright for enough time to make a decent throw. If Eli continues his poor performance, Cruz will also suffer. Steer clear from the headache that is the entire Giants’ passing game.
- Both Giants running backs combined for 36 yards on 15 yards, averaging just 2.4 yards per carry. Although Rashad Jennings has had two good performances, this offensive line is making it hard to want to draft him.
- Hakeem Nicks finally woke up and showed up to play, but that was probably just due to him facing his former team. With him being the third option behind T.Y. Hilton and Reggie Wayne, his performance is for the most part not important. He will be fantasy relevant only in the deepest of leagues.
