New York Giants DFS Spin
Daniel Jones completed 17-of-32 passes for 179 yards and an interception in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the 49ers. Jones had a fumble as well on a bad pitch to Evan Engram on a reverse. Turnovers were a major issue as a rookie, and he's off to a bad start in 2020 with them, too. Through 16 career games, Jones has 16 interceptions and 20 fumbles, although not all of them were lost. For Jones to be a locked-in franchise quarterback, he needs to clean things up. For fantasy purposes, Jones' team-high 49 rushing yards bailed him out from an even worse performance. With Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley out, Jones' QB2 streamer appeal is suspect. The Giants head to L.A. to play the Rams next week.
Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Jared Goff completed 23-of-32 passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Rams' 35-32, Week 3 loss to the Bills, adding two rushes for four yards and a touchdown. Both of Goff's passing scores came on play fakes, while the rushing number was a quarterback sneak. It was Goff's third straight solid performance, though another where he struggled to make plays that weren't set up by play action. The Bills sold out on some second half play fakes, including Goff's touchdown strike to Robert Woods, but weren't able to quite get home on what would have been game-changing plays. Goff has to start making more plays on conventional dropbacks, but for now, the smoke-and-mirrors continues to work. He will be in the low-end QB1 mix for Week 5 against the pathetic Giants.
Giants vs. Rams Betting Prediction
The Giants have covered in eight of their last nine meetings with the Rams and are a perfect 5-0 against the number in their last five road games versus L.A./St. Louis. The road team, meanwhile, is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams and the Giants are 13-3 against the number in their last 16 road games.
