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.

Fantasy Tip: Donnell was a consistent contributor through the team's first three games, but he is on his way to a monster Week 4 performance. It looks like he is quickly becoming one of Eli Manning's main targets, especially in the red zone. With his size and leaping ability, this could be the first of many big performances for Donnell.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has looked more comfortable in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system the last two weeks, but he's still struggling on deep passes. Manning is 0-for-7 with an interception on passes past 20 yards this year. He completed only 28.6 percent of downfield passes for a passer rating of 62.9 last year, too. Manning completed 36.3 percent of downfield passes from 2009 to 2012, though.
Fantasy Tip: Manning finally may be coming around in the new offense, but his lack of success down the field is concerning. As Hanzus notes, the return of Odell Beckham Jr., likely in Week 5, could help boost that part of Manning's game. Tonight against the Washington Redskins, Manning ($5,800 at FantasyScore) could yield some serious profit.

The New York Giants could use RB Andre Williams more in Week 4 if the team gets an early lead and has to rely on the running game, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN New York. The team is monitoring RB Rashad Jennings after he carried the ball 34 times in Week 3, and believe he will be at full strength, but with the short week the team could rely on Williams a bit more.
Fantasy Tip: It would make sense for Williams to see more carries in this spot, but it may not be enough to justify using him in FantasyScore this week, especially since there is no doubt Jennings will see the majority of the workload.
