Daniel Jones has been announced as the starter for the Giants after a two-week absence that saw Eli Manning take the field once again. While it was a nice boost to Saquon Barkley, players like Golden Tate suffered in the meantime. Tate is in a great spot to bounce-back after making just two catches over the last two weeks. Washington’s secondary has been average at best so Tate, along with Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard should all look to perform well here. While Jones doesn’t target Barkley as much as Manning does, Barkley has a huge opportunity ahead against a Washington run defense that allows an average of 114 rushing yards and 4.8 YPC. Taking a season-high 24 carries last week against the Dolphins, Barkley went for 112 yards and two rushing touchdowns. He has a legitimate chance to continue posting those types of numbers in this matchup.
Give Washington some credit, they’ve been putting up a fight as of late. Averaging 23 points over their last three games, they could give the Giants a bit of a run in this game with how bad their secondary has been. On the year, opposing receivers have allowed an average of 183 receiving yards and 14.4 YPR. Terry McLaurin, who came alive for five receptions and 130 yards last week, could be in for back-to-back huge weeks against this Giants team. The Giants run defense hasn’t been anything special either, giving Adrian Peterson a chance to score for his fourth game in a row. Should Washington fall behind, Chris Thompson could also become a factor with the Giants allowing an average of 45 receiving yards per game to opposing backs. While this game may not be the most attractive on paper, both sides have some matchups that could be worth making the betting interesting.
