Sunday Night Preview
Sunday Night Preview:
Cleveland Browns @ New York Giants
CLE -6, O/U 44.5
*Rankings below are the FantasyHolic’s staff expert weekly ranks
-Baker Mayfield (QB #20)- On fire the last 2 weeks (677 yards & 6 TDs) but faces a defense that’s been really strong of late. Giants D top 5 fewest QB points allowed this year. Volume likely takes a step back in a low scoring game.
-Colt McCoy (outside our top 20)- A soft matchup but simply cannot be trust. Proved in his only start this year why he is only a backup.
-Nick Chubb(RB #6)- Running like a man possessed. Blast through the Ravens stout D last week for 2 scores. Expect another monster performance.
-Wayne Gallman (RB #20)- Browns front 7 has been salty but he’s quietly had double digit PPR points in 7 straight. Touches are locked in every week.
-Kareem Hunt (RB #22)- A scaled back workload has made him much less consistent but turned 12 touches into 2 TDs last week. Hard to bench.
-Dion Lewis (outside our top 40)- Only Giant to score last week but not enough touches to use him.
-Jarvis Landry (WR #26)- 30 targets the last 3 weeks. Should continue to rack up catches as the passing game starts with him. Steady and reliable.
-Sterling Shepard (WR #40)- Has been quiet lately but still their most consistently targeted WR. McCoy is bad but so is the Cleveland secondary.
-Darius Slayton (outside our top 40)- Always a big play waiting to happen but this week’s QB is a real Checkdown Charlie. Hasn’t scored since Week 6.
-Rashard Higgins (outside our top 40)- Scored in back to back weeks but the Giants secondary has been strong and he’s disappeared often throughout the season.
-Golden Tate (outside our top 40)- His name is more impressive than his play. Hasn’t reached 50 yards at all this year and coming off a 1 catch performance.
-Donovan Peoples-Jones (outside our top 40)- Back to back nice games but on only 8 total targets. Overall 9 games without a catch.
-Evan Engram (TE #8)- His high ranking is due to the position being a mess, not because he’s set to breakout. Is questionable tonight and mostly quiet on the year. If he plays he should get some targets chasing points, however.
-Austin Hooper (outside our top 24)- Both he and David Njoku are questionable. Harrison Bryant might be the last man standing. Avoiding everyone is highly recommended.
