Giants vs. Washington Fantasy Football Begin ‘Em Sit’ Em for Week 2 ‘Thursday Night Football’

This week’s Thursday Night Football doesn’t inspire much for a scoring bonanza, as the Giants travel to play NFC East rival Washington (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network). Both teams failed to score at least 20 points in Week 1’s home losses to AFC West teams. The game has the lowest total of any Week 2 competition at 40.5 over / under, also taking into account two good defenses. Even with all that said, there are still several obvious “starts” to their fantasy football lineups, as well as some guys in the start ’em, sit’ em bubble.

With that in mind, here’s a look at who you should implement and avoid in TNF, plus some DFS picks for FanDuel and DraftKings single-game boards:

MORE WEEK 2: Get started completely, feel them | Sleepers | Busts

Giants: who to start or sit on in fantasy football on Thursday night

Sit down: QB Daniel Jones

Jones produced 267 passing yards, 27 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns against Denver in Game 1. That was good for a final QB14. But Washington’s defense just kept the Chargers’ Justin Herbert at QB26 at home. Count on more of the latter in a difficult turnaround for Jones.

TNF DFS LINE: DK Showdown | FD only game

Start: RB Saquon Barkley

How healthy is Saquon? Logic would say he’s a little healthier recovering from his knee injury over another week. He received just 11 touches against the Broncos, so it was an even more limited job than expected. Of course you selected it as RB1, and at least it’s better than you could have in flex. We’re going to get a more regular role because the Giants offense needs it.


Sit: WR Kenny Golladay

Golladay might be your best WR3 pick, but if you have a decent alternative, you should go for it. William Jackson III was decent in his debut as Washington’s top corner, and the passing rush should pick up speed with Chase Young to limit Jones’ downfield passes. For what it’s worth, former Bengal Jackson shut down former Lion Golladay in their only meeting during the latter’s rookie season in 2017.

DFS LINE OF THE WEEK 2: DraftKings | FanDuel | Yahoo!

Sit: WR Sterling Shepard

Washington should also get a better game from Kendall Fuller on the slot against Shepard, who is still Jones’s best player. Overall, this isn’t a great passing game showdown for the Giants.

Sit down: TE Kyle Rudolph

Evan Engram is out again (what else is new?) With a calf injury. So do you trust the former Viking to produce? No.

Sit down: K Graham Gano

Start: Giants DST

The Giants defense was DST19 last week. They had two sacks against the Broncos, but there was nothing else to see there. I hope they can get a turnover or two from Taylor Heinicke in a low-scoring game to pay off as a cheap streamer.

Washington: who to start or sit in in fantasy football on Thursday night

Sit down: QB Taylor Heinicke

Heinicke knows the Washington system well, and WFT has a good chance of succeeding with Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip-IR) on the shelf. He distributed the ball well to his playmakers against the Chargers with 122 yards and a TD in just 15 attempts. But he doesn’t provide as much as a running back, and like Fitzpatrick, he’s more of a deep-league QB streamer or a low-end superflex guy as a passer.

Output: RB Antonio Gibson

Gibson had a modest game against the Chargers with 23 touches for 108 yards. In two rookie games against the Giants, he combined for 22 touches, 110 yards and a TD. You will find the end zone with the highest performance in yardage.

Sit: RB JD McKissic

Stop trying to find the McKissic PPR value. Gibson is the main man and Jarret Patterson is the best backup.

Out: WR Terry McLaurin

McLaurin has a tough matchup against James Bradberry on paper, but he had seven receptions, 115 yards and a TD in the last meeting. He looked good when Heinicke entered the Chargers game with an exceptional reception on the field. It will be much more productive than four of 62 this week.

Sit: WRs Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown

There is no Curtis Samuel (groin) this week, but it’s hard to trust Heinicke to feed a lot of players who are not named Gibson, McLaurin and the next.

Start: TE Logan Thomas

Heinicke and Thomas connected for a TD in Week 1. The Giants allowed nine catches for 78 yards and a TD to the Broncos’ tight ends.

Start: K Dustin Hopkins

Hopkins was a regular scorer last season and is off to a good start in this talented offense. Should be in play in 12-team leagues.

Start: Washington DST

Chase Young should want to channel his inner Von Miller to get his first sacks of the season, and Jackson had an interception on his team debut. Jones is a good bet to commit a fumble in every game. He fumbled to the Broncos. Denver was DST7 last week.

Giants vs. Washington: FanDuel Single Game Lineup

  • MVP (1.5X): RB Antonio Gibson $ 12,500
  • AnyFLEX: QB Taylor Heinicke $ 14,500
  • AnyFLEX: WR Terry McLaurin $ 12,000
  • AnyFLEX: WR Kenny Golladay $ 10,500
  • AnyFLEX: TE Logan Thomas $ 10,000

It was about loading with the directors of Washington. This build left some money behind, so we hope Golladay can put decent digits in garbage time.

Giants vs. Washington: DraftKings Showdown lineup

  • Captain (1.5x): WR Terry McLaurin $ 13,500
  • FLEX: QB Taylor Heinicke $ 10,200
  • FLEX: RB Antonio Gibson $ 9,600
  • FLEX: TE Logan Thomas $ 7,400
  • FLEX: Washington DST $ 5,600
  • FLEX: K Graham Won $ 3,600

Washington’s “Big Four” are also present here. This time we could put the defense with the offense. We’re not totally kicking that last flex point with a kicker, but if things go well, we won’t need much of Gano.
