New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) has the confidence of his head coach Tom Coughlin, should the rookie be active in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons. Coughlin said Beckham will be in the game plan this week. "We're in that phase. What we obviously need to do is to see some hard back-to-back practices, one after the other, which I expect we'll accomplish this week," Coughlin said Wednesday, Oct. 1. Coughlin said if the rookie plays, he has full confidence despite the fact he has missed practice time.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham was an explosive receiver at LSU, and he has the chance to be a nice downfield weapon for Eli Manning on a team looking for another play maker. Fantasy owners with some roster flexibility would be wise to stash Beckham for the long haul.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) will be a part of the game plan heading into the team's Week 5 game. Beckham did everything in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, even though he was listed as a limited participant. "I feel good," Beckham said. "Just looking forward to that opportunity, and getting a chance to finally run out on the field."
Fantasy Tip: While it may be tempting to put Beckham into your FantasyScore lineup if he plays because of his reasonable price, you may be better served to show some patience with Beckham. He has not taken any snaps in a game in the new offense and may need some time to get up to speed.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a great price in FantasyScore, it will be tough to use Beckham until he proves he can get on the field and not suffer any setbacks. Look elsewhere this week.

Fantasy Tip: Although Donnell's pace is likely to slow now that defenses know that he is big part of the Giants' passing game, his size and athleticism should ensure that Eli Manning will continue to look his way in the red zone. With a salary of $5,900 (11.8% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 5, Donnell could make a great play against an Atlanta defense that has been one of the worst in the NFL this season.

Although Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has indicated a desire to play in New York, the New York Giants have not expressed any interest at this moment. The Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys will definitely have interest in Suh, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin praised the team's offensive line and hopes the team continues to make progress. "The protection has been good for the most part the last couple of weeks," Coughlin said. "And certainly we've benefited from that, because Eli has had time to recognize his keys and make a decision on his progression. So I see a lot of those things coming together, and I'm very hopeful that we can continue to make progress."

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has become comfortable in the new offense, and he has worked efficiently in the no-huddle. In Week 4 against the Washington Redskins Thursday, Sept. 25, Manning was 20-for-27 on throws 10 yards or shorter, and all four of his touchdown passes came on such passes. "Yes, starting to like the offense," Manning said. "It's fun. Each week we have some new things and different plays that will work. I think everybody, offensive linemen, receivers, are starting to feel the tempo of things and see what we can do in this offense. We just have to keep working." Head coach Tom Coughlin and offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo have successfully tailored their offense to fit their personnel.
Fantasy Tip: Manning pleased his owners and then some with his Thursday night performance. Next week against the Atlanta Falcons could yield more big numbers for Manning. Odell Beckham Jr. could return in Week 5, too, giving the offense a legitimate deep threat.

Fantasy Tip: Williams saw plenty of action after the Giants turned their Week 4 meeting with the Redskins into a blowout early in the second half. Don't expect Williams to see such a heavy workload most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is one of the streakiest quarterbacks in the game, but his performance Thursday was a reminder of just how good he can be. The problem from a fantasy standpoint is that you never know if Manning is going to be the player that has won two Super Bowl MVPs or the one that has led the NFL in interceptions three times. He is a high-risk, high-reward pick at FantasyScore.
