Victor Cruz Fantasy: Giants WR Has Quiet Afternoon

Coming off three straight big games, Victor Cruz had a disappointing fantasy afternoon for the New York Giants. The wide receiver made just two catches for 12 yards, his worst performance since he was held without a catch in Week 1.

Cruz was averaging 77 receiving yards a game with 386 receiving yards on the season and three touchdowns through his first five weeks of the 2011 NFL season. The bulk of that production came in the past three games when Cruz piled up 369 yards on 17 catches. Cruz played sparingly in 2010.

Cruz was ranked by Yahoo! as the 4th ranked wide receiver heading into Week 6 taking on the Buffalo Bills who rank 26th against the pass.

Fred Jackson Fantasy: Bills RB With Another Monster Game

Fred Jackson just continues to churn out impressive fantasy performances. The Buffalo Bills running back turned in another one on Sunday, rushing for 121 yards and a touchdown, while adding 47 yards on five catches. He even threw in a 80-yard touchdown run for those of you in bonus leagues.

It continued what has been a monster thus far in 2011, both in fantasy and real-life. In points-per-reception leagues, he's been especially dominant as his role as Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite checkdown option and a featured screen returner has opened up opportunities to gain massive chunks of yardage.

He's parlayed those opportunities to 480 rushing yards, 232 receiving yards and five total touchdowns, making him a matchup-proof RB1 in the early going. Yahoo!'s guys ranked him as the fifth-best running back for the Bills' Week 6 tilt against the Giants, who were giving up the 11th-most rushing yards and third-most rushing touchdowns in the league before Sunday's game.

Eli Manning Fantasy: Quiet Day For Giants QB

After four straight weeks of tossing at least two touchdowns in every game, Eli Manning had a much more quiet fantasy performance on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Manning threw for 292 yards, but didn't throw a touchdown in a Giants victory. He did avoid any interceptions, though.

In a weird way, it was a bounce back performance for Manning as the ugly version of Manning resurfaced somewhat last week against the Seattle Seahawks when he threw three interceptions among his three touchdowns. The two games prior he was stellar, however, approaching a 70 percent completion percentage for 575 totals yards and six touchdowns, with zero interceptions against the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles.

Manning came in eighth in Yahoo! Sports' fantasy rankings heading into Week 6, making him a low-end starter in a standard 10-team fantasy league. When he is at his best, Manning can be an elite option, however. Unfortunately, his occasional dud performance makes him a liability from time to time.

Hakeem Nicks Fantasy: Giants WR Falls Just Shy Of 100 Yards

Hakeem Nicks turned in the kind of performance people in "bonus" leagues dread. His 96 yards on four catches were certainly nice, but plenty of owners will be thinking "not nice enough." That Nicks failed to get into the endzone, although he did come tantalizingly close when he was pushed out of bounds at the 5-yard line at the end of a 60-yard catch.

Nicks was averaging 82 receiving yards a game with 412 receiving yards on the season and three touchdowns through his first five weeks of the 2011 NFL season. Nicks' receiving yards per game is nearly identical to last seasons'.

Nicks was ranked by Yahoo! as the 4th ranked wide receiver heading into Week 6 taking on the Buffalo Bills who rank 26th against the pass.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Fantasy: Bills Quarterback Tosses 2 TDs

Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be considered fantasy chalk at this point, but the Buffalo Bills quarterback just keeps turning in solid performances. He had another on on Sunday, throwing two touchdowns and 244 yards in a losing effort.

After a hot start to the season, Fitzpatrick's fantasy numbers hit the brakes leading up to Week 6. Through the season's first three games he averaged just over 280 yards per outing, accumulating nine touchdowns. Fitzpatrick failed to reach 200 yards in weeks 4 or 5, with just one touchdown total during the span.

Fitzpatrick's stock has slipped as a result. He came in 9th in Yahoo! Sports' latest fantasy rankings, placing him firmly on the starter/bench border, depending on the matchup. What looked like one of the great sleeper pickups of the year early on has seemingly dropped back to join the means.

Ahmad Bradshaw Fantasy: Giants Running Back Having Big Scoring Day

Ahmad Bradshaw has gotten off to a slow start in 2011, but the New York Giants running back is at least finding the endzone on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Bradshaw has already scored three touchdowns, more than he had all season up to that point. The touchdowns have all been 1-yard runs, leading the way for his first 100-yard game of the season. Although he only got six second-half carries, he ended up rushing for 104 yards.

Bradshaw came into the game as one of the more disappointing running backs this season. He had scored just two touchdowns and had 286 yards rushing coming into this game.

Hand it to Fake Teams, though, as they predicted a breakout week for Bradshaw. They saw that Brandon Jacobs was likely to be out for the game and that Bradshaw would see the bulk of the carries, something that has paid particular dividends in short-yardage situations.

VIDEO: Fred Jackson 80-Yard TD Run

Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson broke off an 80-yard touchdown run in the first quarter to give the Bills a 7-7 tie with the New York Giants. Lined up in the pistol formation, which Chan Gailey is working his hardest to bring back, Jackson broke loose up the middle. Check out the video.

Ryan Fitzpatrick later connected with Naaman Roosevelt to make it a 14-7 lead for the Bills.

The Giants scored first on a 1-yard run from Ahmad Bradshaw.

Fred Jackson has 92 yards on five carries so far in this game, continuing what has quietly been one of the best starts to the season of any NFL running back. Prior to this game, Jackson had 480 yards on 90 rushing attempts to go with five touchdowns. He’s caught 19 passes for 232 yards.

Brandon Jacobs Status Update: Ruled Out Vs. Bills

A knee injury kept New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs from participating in practice for a second straight week, and head coach Tom Coughlin has already ruled Jacobs out for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Jacobs was "doubtful" for the Giants' Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks, but did not play.

With Jacobs demoted to the No. 2 spot behind starter Ahmad Bradshaw, the Giants running game averaged 98.6 yards the first three weeks of the season. Over the last two weeks, the Giants are averaging just 61.5 yards on the ground per game, with Bradshaw limited to just 97 yards on 29 carries against the Arizona Cardinals and Seahawks.

Danny Ware is expected to take on more of a role in the running game, but the Giants may want to include 2011 sixth-round pick Da'Rel Scott in the offense. Scott led the Giants with 213 rushing yards in the preseason, a figure largely comprised of 60+ yard touchdown runs.
