Sunday Night Football Fantasy Cash League Picks 10-11-2015
The New York Giants will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. Fantasy football draft GM’s can tune to NBC TV on October 11th at 8:30PM Eastern Time to track the results of their NFL roster picks.
This San Francisco 49ers team is a much different club than the one that defeated the Giants 16-10 on the road last year. There has been a head coaching change as well as heavy turnover on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. The 49ers drop to 1-3 after they lose 17-3 to the Green Bay Packers at home last week. San Francisco has been held to seven or fewer points in their past two games. The offense is 31st in yards per game (289), 32nd and last in passing yardage (158 per game) and 32nd and last in the league in scoring (12 per game). Over on defense the 49ers sit 29th and fourth last in the league by allowing 27.5 points per game.
The Giants sit at 2-2 and is on a two game win streak with a home win to Washington and a road victory at Buffalo last week. In their 24-10 victory against the Bills it was a good performance by the New York defense by limiting the Buffalo run game to just 55 yards on 24 carries. They were also aided to victory by 17 Bills penalties for 135 yards. The Giants are the number one run defense in the NFL by allowing 69 yards per game on the ground. The offensive numbers have not been trending in the top half of the league but the Giants rank 9th best in scoring offense by producing 25.5 points per game.
