The 2020 fantasy football season is quickly approaching which means it’s time to get a start on your research. We have you covered with our fantasy football rankings as well as projections for the upcoming season. If you are interested in the defensive side of the ball we have you covered there as well. Leave no stone unturned and check out everything we have to offer.
We get the New York faceoff this week. The downside is that both teams are terrible this season. The (2-7) Giants are the away team but don’t have to go anywhere this week. They got smacked around by the Cowboys on Monday night, but the Jets serve as a great team to rebound against. As seen in their record, the Giants don’t have playoff hopes anymore, especially after Monday night. The best they can do now is to continue to develop Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley and prepare for next year. The (1-7) Jets is one of the only teams that have played worse than the Giants this year. It has been a sad year for New York football fans as a whole. The Jets now find themselves in last place in the division after the Dolphins picked up their first win against them last week. Like the Giants, there is no hope for them to make the playoffs. Their offense has been miserable to watch, even with Le’Veon Bell doing everything in his power to carry them. This game may turn ugly early for both teams. For odds movement and full matchup history, visit the New York Giants at New York Jets matchup page.

New York Giants Analysis
The Giants have been on a roller-coaster ride with one single hill. Eli Manning started the season 0-2 to which the Giants responded by replacing him with Daniel Jones. Jones provided the spark that the Giants needed and went on a 2-game win streak. Things were looking up, but they now have gone on a 5-game losing streak to put them out of playoff contention. Their last loss to the Cowboys took a real hit on them. They were up early in the game, but after the black cat ran on to the field, it was downhill from there, eventually losing by 19.
Beating the Jets should not be a problem for the Giants, but they will need Saquon Barkley to play a major role. With their receiving game full of injuries, they will need him to take over. He has the ability to be a threat in the run game and out of the backfield. The number one overall pick should be able to be a major threat in the passing game this week if they can get him in open space.

New York Jets Analysis
There is not much to cheer about for Jets fans. Their offense has been the main problem this season. Having Sam Darnold out for a few weeks with mono didn’t help, but even with him back, they can’t get anything going. They managed to lose against the worst team in the NFL last week in the Dolphins to catapult them into last place. Le’Veon Bell has been the only source of anything this season, both in the run game and the passing game.
If the Jets want a chance in this game, Le’Veon Bell will need to go absolutely off this week. Sam Darnold has not been a reliable quarterback. The Giants have allowed 127.9 rushing yards per game which should all be going to Bell. They have also allowed 10 rushing touchdowns on the season. The Giants do also rank among the worst in pass coverage, so Bell will be able to sneak out of the backfield for a lot of dump-offs.

Like I mentioned above, Le’Veon Bell will need to go off for the Jets to have a chance. The Giants have allowed a high amount of both rushing and passing yards which will work well for Bell. His threat on the ground will allow him to sneak out of the backfield for what the Jets have relied on plenty of times, dumping the ball off. I expect Bell to bring in a ton of points, especially in PPR leagues from the number of targets he will be getting.
