Hello there, Mr. Brown. New York Giants running back Andre Brown made a tremendous splash to start his season in Week 10 with 30 carries for 115 yards and one score in Sunday’s 24-20 win over the Oakland Raiders.
The other interesting bit is that Peyton Hillis was the only other running back to get carries and he had just five. What’s more, Hillis caught just one pass on two targets compared to Brown’s one catch on three targets. Both were the only players to catch a pass out of the backfield. As an aside, Eli Manning only targeted three of his receivers, so just five players saw targets and none of them had more than 50 yards receiving. How in the?
Fantasy impact: Anyway, the struggles of Eli Manning all point to the Giants absolutely needing to get a ground game going. Brown will be the focal point of the offense and getting 30 carries in his first action of the season. Fantasy owners should have tremendous confidence as him as an RB2 against the Packers. Also, he has a favorable schedule the rest of the way, so his owners shouldn’t be looking to selling high.
