Which Giants and Colts to start or sit

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Wondering which New York Giants or Indianapolis Colts to keep in your Fantasy Football lineup this week? Let's take a look.

Giants

QB Eli Manning -- Numberfire projects Manning for a middle-of-the-pack 14.88 Fantasy points this week. His FanDuel cost is $7600. The Giants-Colts game could be a high-scoring one. Start -- unless you have a top-tier quarterback on your roster who is a better bet.

RB Andre Williams -- Numberfire projects 9.12 Fantasy points, and his FanDuel cost is $6,200. Williams has struggled since Rashad Jennings went down with an injury. Sit

WR Rueben Randle -- Numberfire projects 9.09 Fantasy points and his FanDuel cost is $6,400. Start

WR Odell Beckham -- Numberfire projects 8.86 Fantasy points, which I think might be low. His FanDuel cost is $6,600. Beckham is the Giants' best big-play option. Start

TE Larry Donnell -- Numberfire projects 4.75 Fantasy points. His FanDuel cost is $5,400. I think Donnell is due for a big week. Start

PK Josh Brown -- Numberfire projects 8.40 Fantasy points. Brown's FanDuel cost is $5,000. He has had only seven field-goal opportunities this season. Sit

Colts

QB Andrew Luck -- Numberfire projects 21.81 Fantasy points from Luck, the second-highest projection among quarterbacks. Luck's FanDuel cost is $10,100. Considering the banged-up nature of the Giants' secondary and the weapons at his disposal, he is a must play. Start

RB Ahmad Bradshaw -- Numberfire projects 8.92 Fantasy points, and his FanDuel $6,200, matching Williams. For my money, Bradshaw is a far better play than Williams. Start

WR T.Y. Hilton -- The Giants are down to their third slot corner. Numberfire projects 9.90 Fantasy points and his FanDuel cost is $8,100. Hilton could have a huge night Monday against the Giants. Start

WR Reggie Wayne -- Missed last week's game with an elbow injury. Numberfire projects 9.18 Fantasy points and his FanDuel cost is $6,800. Split decision: I would start him in regular play, but wouldn't chance buying him in FanDuel because of the elbow injury.

TE Dwayne Allen -- Numberfire projects 6.95 Fantasy points. FanDuel puts his cost at $6,200. He is worth the investment against the Giants. Start

PK Adam Vinatieri -- Numberfire projects 8.93 Fantasy points, His FanDuel cost is $5,100. If you are choosing between Brown and Vinatieri, the extra $100 is worth it. Start

TE Coby Fleener -- Numberfire projects 4.99 Fantasy points. His FanDuel cost is $5,100. Start, unless you have a big-time option.
