The Giants have given up just five rushing scores to date, and that’s where Mathews makes his money. Buffalo’s pass defense is on a higher plane, which means it could be another long day for Baldwin and his fellow receivers.Sure, Tom Brady whooped them last week; but Russell Wilson isn’t playing anywhere near Brady’s level. Like his quarterback, Hurns has been up and down all season. He faces a tough test at rowdy Arrowhead Stadium against a solid Chiefs secondary.Our guess is that approach yields big results this week.
Perhaps my enthusiasm for the budding superstar is driven by my need to start him in both leagues.
With Dez Bryant back near full speed, there’s no slowing down this Dak Attack. The last time we saw West, prior to the bye, the Jets stuffed him.
Then again, if ever there was a “trap” game, this is it. He’ll exact his revenge on the Steelers, who have been coughing up fantasy points by the truckload to opposing rushers.
QBs Philip Rivers, Cam Newton; RBs Jay Ajayi, Jonathan Stewart, Devontae Booker, De Marco Murray, Matt Forte, Charcandrick West; WRs Jarvis Landry, Terrance Williams, Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, Kelvin Benjamin, Emmanuel Sanders, T. While Amari Cooper is too dangerous to bench, his compatriots shouldn’t be trusted in this matchup. Gurley has been a huge disappointment to his owners this season, and that’s likely to continue against a stout Carolina run defense that just limited David Johnson to 24 yards on the ground last week.
Gurley isn’t used enough as a pass-catcher to make up the difference, like Johnson did. Mathews has effectively surrendered his starting gig to Darren Sproles, even though his coach won’t admit it. Seattle’s passing attack is still off-kilter, as evidenced by their failure to score against the lowly Saints last week.
