Gameday Preview: Giants vs. Bears

Posted: Updated:

There are parts of this game that I like and others that I don't. Let's start with the winless New York football Giants.

Eli Manning is a decent play this week against a Bears pass defense that has allowed multiple touchdowns through the air in three of five games. They did hold Drew Brees under 300 yards last week, but Manning should get there with a couple of touchdowns. If your league penalizes for turnovers, he'll have his garden variety two picks.

With David Wilson's neck keeping him out, the ageless one Brandon Jacobs gets the nod. The Bears are giving up just 3.7 yards per carry and Jacobs is really not a fantasy option…ever.

Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are decent plays this week with Cruz likely getting the touchdown and eclipsing 100 yards. Nicks will finish around 87 yards.

I like Brandon Myers to catch the other touchdown making him a good play. The Bears have allowed at least 76 yards or a touchdown to opposing tight ends including Jimmy Graham's monster game last week.

Stay away from Josh Brown and the NY Defense. Brown hasn't had a field goal in three weeks and despite Cutler's turnover issues, the Bears offense will still score in the 30's.

Jay Cutler and his Bears are going to eat against the Giants defense. You can expect a 350 yard three touchdown performance. The Giants have allowed at least two passing touchdowns in each of their five games.

I see a 150 combo yard two score game from Matt Forte. The Giants are allowing 92 yards on the ground to opposing backs and that number seems about right with the rest coming through the air.

Brandon Marshall is whining that he isn't getting the ball and Alshon Jeffery had his coming out party last week. I think similar stat lines are in store with 6-7 catches for yards in the 80's. Both will score in the contest.

Watch Martellus Bennett as his knee is still in gimp status.

Robbie Gould is a start as is the DST for the Bears.
