GIANTS WEEK 11 FANTASY RESULTS

Antrel RolleIn its first six games, the Giants’ defense scored a combined six points and the team began the season with an 0-6 record. In each of those six weeks the unit failed to finish among the top 20 in the league in fantasy points scored.

But In Week 7, following a scoreless outing in a Week 6 loss to Chicago, the unit put up 11 and won its first game.

Two weeks later it scored a season-high 17 points and in Week 11 the unit scored 16, finished as the league’s No. 4 defense and won its fourth consecutive contest.

WEEK 11 FANTASY RANKINGS

“We’ve put the blinders on,” defensive end Justin Tuck said after the Giants’ Week 11 victory over Green Bay. “We’re not listening to the good, the bad or the ugly. We’re studying our butts off, we’re doing more meeting time, all the things that we were maybe lacking before. But for me personally, it’s fun. When you’re out there having fun it shows and right now we’re out there having fun. Again, the defense played pretty well and we’re just trying to continue that.”

The team also picked up its first defensive touchdown on the season when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul brought an interception back 24 yards for a touchdown. 

HIGHLIGHTS: GIANTS VS. PACKERS 

The Giants’ defense earned an average ranking of No. 12 in Week 11 but was ranked as high as No. 5 by ESPN.

Quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Victor Cruz are also on the rise. Manning moved up three spots, from No. 24 to No. 21, after scoring 13.46 fantasy points and Cruz catapulted from No. 49 to No. 20 with 11 points.

Running back Andre Brown finished as the league’s No. 5 running back in fantasy points scored in his season debut and remains in the top 20 after picking up 9.3 points against Green Bay.

GIANTS WEEK 11 FANTASY RANKINGS

Andre BrownAndre Brown made a believer of the fantasy experts in his season debut against the Raiders on Sunday.

Brown picked up 115 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 30 carries and jumped 20 spots in the fantasy rankings, from No. 30 to No. 10. He scored 17.9 fantasy points, the most of any Giants running back this season, and finished as the league’s No. 5 running back.

“He’s going to be a top 20 running back for me because I don’t see another running back in that backfield getting that many carries,” ESPN’s Eric Karabell said.  “He’s 39 rushing yards away from the team lead and he’s played in one game. Think about that for a minute. Going forward they’ve got Green Bay coming up, I’m going to rank him ahead of Ray Rice and ahead of Trent Richardson. These guys are doing nothing, Andre Brown is a good player. If I knew he was going to get that many touches I would have ranked him higher. Yes — he is a top 20 running back this week and for the rest of the season.”

WEEK 10 FANTASY RESULTS

Brown is the only Giant ranked in the top 10 but the team’s defense is not far behind. The unit earned an average ranking of No. 12, one spot down from last week, but was ranked as high as No. 5 by Karabell and ESPN.

Jason Pierre-Paul“I’d say the Giants are a good streaming defense,” Karaball said. “But they’ve also gotten a lot of luck with the quarterbacks they’ve played. Scott Tolzien will be starting his first NFL game on Sunday and I have to believe he will be good for at least two interceptions and maybe a fumble or two.”

The team’s defense finished No. 3 in the league with 15 points scored in Week 10.

But several Giants are moving in the opposite direction. Quarterback Eli Manning fell five sports, from No. 14 to No. 19, and was ranked as low as No. 23 by ESPN. Wide receiver Victor Cruz also fell, from No. 12 to No. 15. Cruz had been ranked as high as No. 6 in Weeks 5 and 6 but remains out of the top 10 for the second week in a row.

CBS Sports’ three-man panel apparently had mixed emotions about Josh Brown. He was ranked as the league’s No. 2 kicker by one member but received a No. 23 ranking by another. Brown earned an average ranking of No. 18.

Here’s a look at this week’s fantasy rankings. This week’s ranking is listed in parentheses. +/- indicates the difference between this week’s rankings and last week’s.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. RAIDERS

“We don’t make it easy on ourselves, but we did find a way to win, and I think the only way that happens is that the players believed at halftime that [they were] going to win. That’s basically the way it happened. If you look closely, we were minus-one, but we traded off some of the really bad or good plays, and I think that was very much a positive.  We couldn’t have fathomed starting the game off like we did, and then we block a punt. They intercept and score; we intercept the ball and go to their three-yard line. So it kind of went back and forth. Andre Brown certainly… I told you 40 carries the other day, and I certainly didn’t mean to mislead you. It was 30. He gave us what we needed. He had a little spark out there – some power runs. Almost broke free a couple times as well.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“I carried it 30 times? It felt like 50. There were a couple times where I was like, “Ahh,” tapped myself and got out of there but I didn’t know… I guess coach did say… what did he predict, 40? He was 10 off. Yeah, I didn’t expect that many carries but when we’re down there running the ball like we did, I guess you stay on pace and you stay on track. I guess we just keep it rolling.” -RB Andre Brown

“We’re finding ways to win and that’s nice and obviously we’ve won three in a row but we still have to figure out some things. We still have to play a little bit better but we are coming together as a team and finding ways to win games in the fourth quarter and playing a little better so obviously that’s good to see. That’s what we need to do and we’ve got to keep working offensively. The defense has been playing outstanding, they’ve been playing really great. Offense, we’ve got to start being a little more consistent and having some better drives and obviously not putting them in a bind and turning the ball over.” -QB Eli Manning

“Honestly, we really haven’t lost any of that optimism. Even at 0-6 we still felt as though we could still climb out of the hole we were in. We still are in the hole but obviously it feels good to have three in a row here and two more games in a row at home. We’re starting to play with a lot of confidence and that’s something that hopefully we can continue to build on and continue to get back in this race.” -DE Justin Tuck

QUOTABLES

“With the way things have turned out… and it starts with bringing Brandon back and then Andre Brown got hurt. That was the type of player that Brandon was. We wanted him to be that big, smash-mouth kind of guy and Ahmad Bradshaw to be that change up, but the little guy played like the big kind of guy, speed change up as well and quickness. When Brandon came back for the Chicago game it gave us an uplift in physicality as far as a team and how we were going to play as a team as well as the emergence of our fullback in that situation just trying to be more physical. Now Brandon gets hurt and we bring in another big back just like Brandon, a big physical type guy. And then David Wilson gets hurt and now Michael Cox has to be that guy as a rookie who really gives us that same kind of bang speed changeup kind of guy because Michael Cox has that acceleration and speed and Peyton Hillis has that bang that you’re looking for because that’s what we’ve been built on around here is physicality, so that’s been good. The other thing that’s been good about Peyton is he’s a smart, bright guy. He’s been able to help us out on third down and catches the ball real well out of the backfield and does a fairly decent job of protecting the quarterback.” -RB coach Jerald Ingram

“You just keep working and you try to get better and that’s all we can do. That’s all we can control is this next game and try to get a win. We don’t know what’s going to happen with the rest of the NFC East. We’ve still got to play five more games between the NFC East, but obviously we’ve got Minnesota next Monday night and it should be an opportunity for us to go out and get better. I thought we made some improvements this week offensively with running the ball and pass protection and making some plays. We’ve just got to eliminate the mistakes.” -QB Eli Manning

Daily Blitz (7/25): Fantasy breakout players

FANTASY FOOTBALL: BREAKOUT PLAYERS AND SLEEPERS TO TARGET

It’s time to start thinking about fantasy football again, and while you’re brainstorming a team name, NFL.com put together an early draft kit, which included a few Giants among breakout players and sleepers.

Breakout Players to Target:

WR Hakeem Nicks

“This might be the biggest risk-reward breakout candidate on the list, but there’s a lot to like about Nicks heading into this season. For one, he’s back at 100 percent health. The North Carolina product is also in a contract year, which means he’ll be even more motivated to produce at a high level in an effort to cash in at the end of the 2013 campaign. Being that he’ll be taken as a No. 2 fantasy wideout, Nicks could turn into a major steal in drafts.” — Michael Fabiano

RB David Wilson

“With Ahmad Bradshaw gone, expect the 2012 first-rounder to build on those flashes we saw last season. His ability to catch the ball means he doesn’t have to leave the field on third down, which makes his value to you all the greater.” — Dave Dameshek

TE Brandon Myers

“How am I able to call someone who finished in the top-10 in fantasy points at his position last year a ‘breakout candidate’ for 2013? When you’re a tight end, being ranked 10th isn’t all that great, but when you’re going to make the jump to a top-three player in your category in just one year? Yeah, that’s a breakout. The Giants have shown no matter who their tight end is, Eli Manning is going to get the ball to him – whether it’s Jeremy Shockey, Jake Ballard, Kevin Boss or Martellus Bennett. Myers has more talent than most of the players I’ve just mentioned. He’s a perfect fit in New York’s offense, who, unlike Oakland, actually has threats on the outside that will open things up for Myers underneath. He caught 79 balls with the Raiders last year, he’ll approach 100 with the G-Men.” — Jason Smith

Sleepers:

RB Andre Brown

“David Wilson is going to get the headlines, but Brown is going to get the touchdowns. The Giants love to pound the ball when they get inside the 10-yard line, and Brown will get repeated chances to score every time they do so. He plays with a mean streak that’s part desperation, part desire. He wants the football, and he wants to get in the end zone. He can be a solid flex player for you this season, and he’ll be available in the eighth round or later.” — Jason Smith

TWEET OF THE DAY

QUOTABLES

“There is no such thing as ‘maintain.’ You have to get better all of the time or you are going the wrong way. And you have heard it as a cliché, said many times, what I firmly believe and I think that good players all know it, as you physically get older, you have to compensate for that with continued growth with technique, continued growth in the deepening of understanding of what is taking place out there, so that you can compensate for whatever that loss of skill level is. So as a receiver, as a running back, as a lineman, if you are not doing that, then pretty soon you are going to be on the bench.”Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride on Eli Manning (WATCH PREVIEW REPORT)
