I’ll make this short and sweet. This is the lineup I’m heading into Thursday Night with and I’ll explain for each player.
Team Captain: I’m staying with the red hot Travis Fulgham. Fulgham has exploded onto the scene with the absence of multiple Philadelphia Wide Outs. D-Jax is supposed to be active today, but with playing 2 games over the past two years, i expect him to be on a snap count and just overall not very productive.
Flex: My first flex is Freeman. Lamar had over 100 rushing yards himself against a shotty eagles D, and i expect the Giants to try and establish the run early to get pressure off Danny Dime. My second flex is Carson Wentz. The Giants secondary has been... questionable. So I’ll take Wentz over Danny. My third flex is Boston Scott. This is truly just because Sanders is out, and i feel Boston will get goal line touches along with 3-7 targets. True value if he can get into the end zone and catch a few balls.
Fourth Flex is Golden Tate. This is a guess that the Giants are going to have to put together solid drives and move down the field to be competitive in this game. If Tate can take advantage of his snaps in the slot, he can be a sneaky play for 6-10 catches and maybe a Touchdown.
And finally I’m ending with Gram Gano. If the Giants move the ball accordingly, there are definitely going to be opportunities for Gram to make his $3,700 price point extremely worth the value.
