New York Giants
By this point in the season, your roster is pretty much set. Bye weeks will change things, as will injuries, but your team shouldn’t be relying too heavily on the waiver wire for success. If you are, then I’d imagine your playoff hopes are similar to those of the Giants, and your face is likely as red as Tom Coughlin’s.
With your roster set, the toughest choices become who to start each week. While you could just sit back and let my rankings do the work for you, thinking about matchups can make your choices easier. Certain offenses tend to provide more opportunities for IDP stats, and depending on your scoring system, this knowledge can help you decide between two close options on your roster.
Here are some teams and scoring systems that have yielded great results so far:
Tackles – Buffalo
The Bills have let up an average of over 86 total tackles per game against them, including a remarkable 107 in their Week 4 win against the Ravens. They run the ball a lot with Spiller and Jackso...

The New York Giants are in the midst of a nightmarish season, but head coach Tom Coughlin isn't even considering pulling the plug on his floundering gunsliner.
With an 0-6 record, Tom Coughlin is considering a lot of things to improve the New York Giants.
Changing quarterbacks isn't one of them.
Coughlin on Thursday said Eli Manning has led the Giants to many victories in his 10-year career and he fully expects the two-time Super Bowl MVP to do it again.

Tom Coughlin knows Eli Manning is struggling but believes his two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback is getting too much blame for his winless team's current plight.
And no, there will be no sudden benching of his quarterback this season, and the Giants head coach made that clear on Wednesday during his conference call with Minnesota Vikings reporters.
"If I hear you...
“We’re going to win again with Eli.’’
Proclamations from head coaches do not come more defiant and definitive than those words Giants coach Tom Coughlin delivered Thursday in the wake of Eli Manning’s colossal struggles and with questions now surfacing about whether he should be benched with his confidence seemingly shattered.
This was not exactly a whisper becoming a...
Giants coach Tom Coughlin isn’t considering benching erratic quarterback Eli Manning Monday night against the Vikings, despite a league-high 15 interceptions and a 0-6 record.
The Giants signed Peyton Hillis to provide some depth at a very thin running back position on Wednesday. The team fully expects him to play on Monday.
Is part of it the creation of necessity? No doubt. The Giants only have one healthy running back in Michael Cox, but Cox is a seventh round draft pick rookie who the team doesn't quite trust in pass protection yet. The team...
One of Tom Coughlin’s goals during the extended break between games was to correct the pass rush.
Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell insisted it was still the strength of the team. The unit depends on pressure and flows through Jason Pierre-Paul Justin Tuck Mathias Kiwanuka and Cullen Jenkins among others.
But heading into Monday night’s game vs. Carolina the Giants have a...
