Eli Manning suggests that the Giants No. 3 receiver spot could be filled by committee. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eli Manning is suggesting that the New York Giants could rotate a group of players in the No. 3 receiver spot this season. Manning tells Ralph Vacchiano of The New York Daily News that the person playing in that No. 3 spot could depend on a number of factors so it's important to have options to put certain guys in certain spots. The Giants drafted Rueben Randle in the second round and he should be among the players looking for playing time in that position.

Analysis: This is also a byproduct of Mario Manningham now playing for the 49ers. Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz are the team's two top receivers and should be the primary targets of fantasy owners on draft day. Any production the Giants get from a No. 3 receiver will only help the value of Manning, Nicks and Cruz, but there is no reason at this point to dip below Nicks and Cruz to grab a Giants receiver.
