“It’s probably going to be a little tough to catch. But we’re going to do our best,” he added.
Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery may...

Coaches always tell their backups to be ready. A play or an injury often separates them from being a starter or - at the least - a contributor.
With the New York Giants, that happened to running back Andre Brown, wide receiver Ramses Barden and rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley over the past five days, and boy did they take advantage.
Brown, who has been cut seven times by five different...

No Hakeem Nicks? No Ahmad Bradshaw? No problem. NFL teams often use the phrase “next man up” when starters go down with injuries, and the Giants exemplified the importance of depth by adhering to it on Thursday night.

What a game it was for the New York Giants as an entire unit. Everything was working for them, their offense put up 36 points, their defense forced 3 Cam Newton interceptions and even their special teams got into the action with 2 forced fumbles. While the team performed well as a whole, it was 2 players who put in serious work in fantasy this week.
I will start with the player...
