Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 10: Raiders vs. Giants

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

We give some sit/start advice for the Week 10 matchup between the Oakland Raiders and New York Giants.

The Oakland Raiders and New York Giants are set to face off Sunday. Oakland is 3-5, though the team is coming off a game in which it allowed Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to throw a whopping seven touchdown passes. New York is 2-6 and was finally showing some signs of life before its Week 9 bye.

Both teams have their fantasy options, and we'll talk about both of them below, starting with the home team:


Start: Victor Cruz, Eli Manning

Cruz has been one of the best fantasy receivers this season. He's dealing with a neck injury, but he's expected to play, and he will be Manning's top target. Manning has struggled with his accuracy this season, but his offensive line seems to be improving and the Raiders have a poor secondary.

Deep Start: Hakeem Nicks

Nicks has fallen far short of expectations this season but he faces a desirable matchup this week and should be a solid WR2 or WR3 this week.

Sit: Brandon Jacobs, Peyton Hillis, Andre Brown

The New York running game is a hot mess right now. David Wilson is injured, Jacobs isn't very good, Hillis hasn't shown anything that would inspire confidence in fantasy owners and Brown is coming off an injury.


Start: Terrelle Pryor, Rashad Jennings

It's a strange world we live in where Pryor is something of a must-start due to his playmaking ability, but it's the truth. His ability to run the ball is too great to keep him on the bench. Jennings was very effective in relief last week and should perform well as the starter this time out.

Deep Start: Denarius Moore

Moore is Pryor's top target and makes a solid WR3 option week in and week out. He's not listed under "start," though, because the Giants have been effective against wide receivers this season.

Sit: Rod Streater

One player has to be the odd man out and Moore matches up better with the New York secondary. This week, Streater is a sit.
