Let’s assume for the purpose of this exercise that they renounce their rights to McDermott to create cap space.

Authentic Womens Nico Siragusa Jersey The head-to-head format makes fantasy baseball a lot more like fantasy football, where you only have to have to outperform one other manager each week in order to get that elusive W. That said, there’s enough luck involved in the game without having to add in the potential for an player to have the second-highest score each week, yet be 0-10 and essentially out of the running by June. A team that’s last in your league in overall points likely has no chance at ever truly competing on the regular with the top teams. That said, if you throw out schedules and simply award a win to the top six scores each week in a 12-team league, it’s a lot easier for a struggling manager to see light at the end of the tunnel if he only has to reach as high as No. 6 overall to achieve future success.

If the Giants were below average in offensive efficiency before, what are they going to do now without (at least) receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall? It could get ugly for New York — heck, it already is.

It’s worth noting here that FPI does have its limitations, and one of those limitations is that it does not explicitly adjust for injuries to non-quarterbacks.

But at the moment, it probably is slightly overrating Big Blue’s prospects in this game because it doesn’t know about the loss of Beckham.

All of FPI’s optimism about the Giants stemmed from a belief that their defense would be excellent, but so far, it, like the offense, has been below average in terms of efficiency. FPI hasn’t given up on the defense yet — it still thinks the unit will be 2.2 points better per game than average — but it’s been disappointed so far.
