2. Adams torches G-Men for 10 catches, 200 yards, 2 TDs

Since returning to the lineup for the Green Bay Packers, Davante Adams has clearly been a big part of the offense. In each of the last three games, the wide receiver has been targeted 10 or more times and has seven catches in all three outings. Outside of Week 10 against the Panthers when he had 118 yards, though, he’s been held in check with two games of just over 40 yards. Moreover, his touchdown last week was his first of the 2019 season.

Put simply, no one in the Giants secondary is capable of covering an elite route-runner and technician like Adams and he’s going to feast on those defensive backs. He’ll come up with a monster showing that results in double-digit receptions, crossing the double-century mark in yardage and finding the end zone multiple times.

1. Barkley held under 100 total yards

Fantasy football owners will be sure to tell you how disappointing that Giants star running back Saquon Barkley has been in 2019. After taking the league by storm last season as a rookie, Barkley has been pedestrian, rushing for just 461 yards and two touchdowns while averaging only 3.9 yards per carry. However, a generous Packers run defense might seem to be the answer for his woes.

That won’t be the case, however. While I still have little faith in the Packers run defense moving forward, the playmakers up front should be able to cause the Giants offensive line issues. Moreover, New York’s offense has been anything but inspired this season. As such, Green Bay will bottle up the second-year pro and hold him to under 100 total yards.
