Below are the receivers with the best and worst Week 5 matchups, as Everson Griffen Jersey well as the corresponding fantasy impact.
What has gone right: Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has Mike Pouncey Youth Jersey re-gained his game-changing form after a preseason ankle injury lingered into the regular season. First-round draft pick Evan Engram also has become the pass-catching tight end quarterback Eli Manning has needed for years.
What has gone wrong: The same offensive problems that maligned New York in 2016 — a poor offensive line and the lack of a consistent running game — continue this season. That has placed even more strain on Manning, who simply can’t carry the offense on his own at age 36.
What’s next: The Giants will be favored to get their first win Sunday against the visiting Chargers, but the three opponents that follow — Denver, Seattle and the Los Angeles Rams — probably will keep New York in the NFC East basement and generate further speculation about coach Ben McAdoo’s job security.
