Fantasy Recap: Giants 27 Ravens 23 Final

The Giants Beat recaps the best fantasy performers from a nail-biter in the Meadowlands.

  Odell Beckham Jr. (32.30 points)- Odell Beckham Jr. had his long-anticipated breakout game of the 2016 season, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Giants.  With eight receptions for 222 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-winning 66-yard reception from Eli Manning on a fourth-and-one pass with just under two minutes to go.  Beckham also gets the top spot on my list because he was able to keep himself composed on focused, and showed resiliency by remaining in the game despite obvious discomfort in his hip as well as not letting his fumble get in his head.  The win puts the Giants at 3-3 and still very much in the mix in the NFC East, and Beckham is the main reason why.

2.      Eli Manning( 26.12 points)- Despite throwing two interceptions and almost a third due to some miscommunication with Victor Cruz, Eli Manning grabs the two-spot on my list for his clutch performance during that final drive and touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr.   Manning finished the day with 403 yards through the air and three touchdowns, really shredding a Baltimore secondary that is was depleted but was still ranked in the top ten in terms of total pass defense.  His two long touchdown passes of 75 and 66 yards to Beckham gave Giants fans a glimpse into the kind of big-play passing attack that they hoped to have at the beginning of the season and lacked up until today.  

3.      Terrance West (24.30 points)- Terrance West, had the Ravens won, would’ve gotten the top spot on my list for his two touchdowns and 87 rushing yards on 23 carries.  Both touchdowns were one-yard scampers into the end zone, and West also had 36 receiving yards to round out what was the best game of his career.  The one-yard touchdown runs and under 100 yards rushing for the Ravens highlight a Giant defensive line that finally played up to their potential today and limited big plays on the ground.  Jason Pierre-Paul had three tackles and batted down two Joe Flacco passes, while Johnathan Hankins finished with four tackles.
