New York Giants versus Minnesota Vikings NFL Fantasy Preview 12-27-2015
The Sunday Night Football game will feature the Minnesota Vikings facing the New York Giants. NFL fantasy draft GMs can tune to NBC TV on Sunday December 27th to track the scoring results of their one day league real money picks.
When the Giants take the field on Sunday night they will know if they are still in the hunt for an NFC East division title. A Washington Redskins victory on Saturday will eliminate the Giants from the playoffs. Don’t get caught up too much on that. Under head coach Tom Coughlin the team has shown the professionalism to play hard even when games are meaningless. New York has a very good offense ranking sixth in the NFL in both scoring and passing offense. They throw for 270 yards and average 26.6 points per game. At issue for New York is they will be without their huge playmaker on offense as wide receiver Odell Beckham has been suspended for one game and will miss Sunday night’s game. The Giants are the worst defensive team in the NFL. They allow 308 yards passing per game which is 32nd and last in the league.
Minnesota has defended the pass very well ranking seventh in the league. With Odell Beckham gone and a bad running game for the Giants it could give the Vikings some looks to take on defense. Expect the Giants to spread the ball out to their receivers, tight ends and backs and it’s hard to make a case for the Vikings defense or any of the Giants offensive weapons.
Here are the Fantasy Football Picks
Teddy Bridgewater is going to pass against the worst defense in the NFL. He is coming off one of his best games of his two year career as he threw for 231 yards and four touchdowns in a win against the Bears. Two weeks ago at Arizona, it as Bridgewater throwing for a touchdown and 335 yards on the road against a very good defensive team.
