Speaking Wednesday, coach Sean McDermott said Frank Gore remains the Bills' starting running back. To "remain" something, one would have to be in that spot in the first place. Gore didn't start the opener against the Jets and was out-snapped 45-19 by rookie Devin Singletary. Nobody is buying Gore as the lead back, and McDermott admitted he's not trying to show his hand to the opponent. The Giants will be expecting to see Singletary. Gore stumbled forward for 20 yards on 11 carries Week 1. Singletary was much more effective with 70 yards on four attempts, adding another 28 yards on five catches. Gore can be dropped in normal-sized 12-team leagues. He got most of his work as the "closer" on the final drive against the Jets.
New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Sterling Shepard (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. Meanwhile, Cody Latimer (calf) showed up with a new injury/DNP. It's not an exaggeration to say the Giants will be running out one of the worst receiver corps in NFL history if Shepard doesn't suit up. Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram will both have a targets over/under of 10.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 8-3 in the Bills’ last 11 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The over is a perfect 6-0 in the Giants’ last six games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous contest.
The under is 7-1 in the Bills’ last eight road games, is 5-1 in their last six games coming off a win and is 5-2 in their last seven games after they cashed in their previous game. On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Giants’ last five games played playing in the second week of the season and is 7-2 in their last nine games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous contest. With how much both teams figure to run the ball in this matchup, the clock should be constantly moving and thus, the scoring should be low.
