Fantasy owners find no comfort in New York Giants Sunday

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, David Wilson, Brandon Myers, Rueben Randle, every Giant struggled Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seven catches for 98 yards would be a fair game for a receiver. Seven catches for 98 yards is what the New York Giants got from Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Brandon Myers, and Rueben Randle Sunday. Combined.

The team's rushing attack wasn't much better, as lead running back David Wilson ran the ball 11 times for 39 yards, and the team was beaten badly by the Carolina Panthers, 38-0.

Fantasy impact: It seems like the Giants have games like this more than any other team, and they are heinously difficult to predict. Regardless, anyone who started any Giant Sunday was horrifically disappointed. Nicks was targeted only once in the game and had no catches. Cruz caught three of his eight targets for 25 yards. Myers was three-of-six for 33, and Randle was two-of-four for 40.

There were no bright spots in the New York offense Sunday. Whether this is a testament to a strong Panthers defense or an indictment of a struggling Giants team -- or both -- remains to be seen, but the value of every Giant is at a low point right now.
