Steelers vs. Giants: Fantasy football projections featuring Isaac Redman, Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 9 matchup between the PIttsburgh Steelers and New York Giants

The New York Giants host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a matchup of two teams with serious offensive firepower. Both teams have often been known more for their defense, but 2012 is a different time for these two offenses. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The big question mark for the Steelers is their rushing attack. They have gone through Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer as their starting backs. This week, it looks like Redman will get the call. Mendenhall and Dwyer are both listed as doubtful for Sunday's game, having been limited on Wednesday and Thursday, and then sitting out Friday. Redman isn't a great start, but if you have bye week issues, he is a suitable replacement.

New York Giants

The Giants are rolling along at 6-2 thanks in large part to their dynamic passing attack. Eli Manning has developed into a must-start in most formats. Victor Cruz remains his No. 1 option, with Hakeem Nicks still a bit of an enigma. Nicks is not on the injury report this week, but it remains to be seen when he will bust out of his midseason slump. He is a risky start for now, although there is certainly quite a bit of upside.
