Fantasy football projections, Week 17: Redskins vs. Giants featuring Kirk Cousins, Pierre Garcon and Andre Brown

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

We break down the Week 17 matchup between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.

The Week 17 matchup between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants features two teams just playing out the season. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Washington Redskins

Quarterback Kirk Cousins may have played himself out of the lineups of his fantasy owners after putting together some low numbers against a not exactly stout Dallas Cowboys defense last week. Though his 21 completions weren't too bad, he threw for fewer than 200 yards and had one touchdown pass and an interception.

His owners may start him again this week in a tasty matchup against the Giants, but his production isn't guaranteed. A better bet on the Redskins is wide receiver Pierre Garcon. He has 18 catches for 273 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the last two games. Garcon is obviously on fire at the right time and should be starting this week.

New York Giants

After coming off of injured reserve back in Week 10, running back Andre Brown made an immediately big impact on the fantasy community. He's cooled down considerably lately. Brown has surpassed 40 yards rushing just once in the last four weeks. That's despite getting 57 carries over that stretch. He might find himself on the fantasy bench this week.

In terms of the passing game, the Giants will be without Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle is questionable this week. That means Hakeem Nicks could be in for a big game to end the season. He was a popular mid-round pick in fantasy drafts this year, but has struggled mightily this year. Sunday's game could be his last as a member of the Giants.
