Even though the Giants were idle, there was still some movement in the power rankings this week.
Here’s a look at what outlets across the nation are saying about the 6-4 Giants and how they stack up in our weekly roundup:
Comments: Voters include Gil Brandt, Bucky Brooks, Charley Casserly, Heath Evans, Daniel Jeremiah, Michael Lombardi, Willie McGinest, Shaun O’Hara, Gregg Rosenthal, Darren Sharper, Kurt Warner, Brian Webber, Steve Wyche.
NFC East: No. 15 Cowboys (previously 14), No. 18 Redskins (21), No. 27 Eagles (23)
Comments: “I’m not sure a 9-7 team makes the playoffs this year unless they win their own division, and that may be the case for the Giants. But then again, it seemed to work out pretty well for them last year.” – Brian Billick
NFC East: No. 17 Cowboys (16), No. 18 Redskins (20), No. 28 Eagles (22)
Comments: “They better hope the offense got a nice little tuneup during the bye week. It has to produce more.” - Pete Prisco
NFC East: No. 16 Cowboys (16), No. 19 Redskins (26), No. 25 Eagles (22)
Comments: “They’re back from the bye with the Cowboys suddenly in the rearview mirror. Is Eli’s arm up to the task?” – Dan Graziano
NFC East: No. 16 Cowboys (15), No. 18 Redskins (21), No. 27 Eagles (24)
Comments: “The Giants just had a bye, and there suddenly are concerns about whether they can win their division and surge into the playoffs. Manning and Tom Coughlin also are under pressure. Guess what? That’s when they start playing like champs.”
NFC East: No. 13 Cowboys (14), No. 18 Redskins (23), No. 28 Eagles (24)
Comments: “Time for Eli to be Eli.” – Hank Gola
NFC East: No. 14 Cowboys (15), No. 19 Redskins (24), No. 27 Eagles (25)

Top Waiver-Wire Adds
Parmele burst onto the fantasy scene this week. When his number was called, he contributed in a way former starter Rashad Jennings failed to do in five games (never gaining more than 60 yards and only one touchdown). With a rocky Tennessee Titans defense up next, Parmele could be at it again.
QB Colin Kaepernick, 49ers
Last week: 243 yards, 2 TD
Alex Smith is getting healthier as we speak, at least he better hope so. With Kaepernick’s near-flawless game against one of the toughest defenses in the league in the Chicago Bears, there may be a controversy brewing in the Bay Area.
WR Danario Alexander, Rams
Last Week: 96 yards, 2 TD
Alexander has more than proven his worth for any fantasy roster. Compiling for more than 290 yards in his last three games with three touchdowns and 15 receptions, he looks to be Bradford’s new favorite go-to target in St. Louis. As the Ravens possibly come into town without Ed Reed and an already banged up Baltimore secondary, Bradford and Alexander will try to take full advantage.
