New York Giants

All-world talent Odell Beckham Jr. will likely join Saquon Barkley (hamstring) on the bench, but Beckham is reportedly back to his dominant ways on the practice field.

Coach Pat Shurmur said he wants Eli Manning’s completion rate “bordering on 70” this season, which could lead to plenty of high-percentage passes to Beckham, one of the league’s premiere run-after-the-catch artists.

While Manning will surely welcome his No. 1 WR back with open arms come Week 1, OBJ’s presence hasn’t historically been great for Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard’s fantasy production.

New York Jets

Jets starters are expected to play for at least the first half on Friday night. This should include No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold, who has posted a pristine 72.4% completion rate through two preseason games while consistently moving the offense. Still, his average of 5.4 yards per attempt would have ranked 45th out of 48 quarterbacks last season (minimum two starts). It’s only the preseason, but defenses will force Darnold to beat them downfield at some point.

Landon Collins said the Giants’ starting defense expects to play three quarters.

The total has dropped since opening at 42 despite the over receiving 57% of public tickets (per our Live NFL Odds page).
