Mitchell Trubisky threw three touchdowns against the Lions in the fourth quarter to bring his team back to win their first game of the year. The Giants on the other hand, couldn’t get much going against the Steelers stout defensive line. The Bears line is good, but it’s not at the Steelers level right now. We’ll get to see if Saquon Barkley and the Giants work in progress offensive line can get something going this week.
As far as the Bears go, the question is can Trubisky build of his Week 1 or will we see him once again fall down the inconsistency well? The Giants defense isn’t special, so he should get his chances.

Fantasy football start/sit advice
Sterling Shepard: Darius Slayton was the fantasy stud for the Giants in Week 1, but I still expect Shepard to be the No. 1 receiver for the team. Slayton is obviously a high-upside play and worth a start, but Shepard is the play to go back to each week for high-floor consistency.
Anthony Miller: You’ll want to play Allen Robinson in this good matchup, but Miller, if Trubisky can get him the ball, is going to put up fantasy points. His game winner last week was a thing of beauty and he has those kinds of catches in him. Hopefully he’ll get his chances to make them.
