New York Teams

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Sterling Shepard is the first wide receiver to manage double-digit fantasy points in his first three career games since Martavis Bryant (2014, Weeks 7-9), and he's only the seventh wide receiver to do it since 1950. The other six: Bryant, Percy Harvin, Billy Howton, Glen Kozlowski, Louis Lipps, Bobby Mitchell and Donte' Stallworth.

Giants rookie CB Eli Apple out with a hamstring injury. Expect more DRC.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Olivier Vernon ruined that drive. Forced hold. It's the 3rd hold he's forced this season. Almost as good as sacks.

Press box view at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Jets face the Chiefs at 4:25 ET. It's an overcast day, kind of damp, but the rain has stopped. No rain for the rest of the day, per the local forecast.

On first play of second quarter, Odell Beckham Jr. turned 2 Redskins DBs around, including Josh Norman. His first catch in 3 targets goes for 26 yards.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland is out with an ankle injury. Going to make it very difficult to contain Victor Cruz/Sterling Shepard if Josh Norman sticks with Odell Beckham.

Mike Sando ESPN Senior Writer 

One knock on the Redskins under Jay Gruden is that they are pass-happy by nature. Sticking with the run while down 14-3 is that much tougher.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard is going to create matchup issues for opposing defenses all season long when he aligns in the slot. Too quick off the jump. Smooth route runner. Giants go up 14-3 on the Redskins in the first quarter after Eli Manning hit Shepard on the seam route for a TD.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Sterling Shepard again having his way. Two catches for 35 yards and a TD. Inches away from 2 TDs. Redskins in trouble down 14-3 and short on CBs.

The wrap on Olivier Vernon's wrist definitely shrunk this week. He hurt it in opener vs. Dallas. Had almost a club vs Saints.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Rookie RB Paul Perkins is ACTIVE for the Giants for the first time. Not a Week 3 fantasy play but I'd love to see him get some work; he's a good long term stash.
