The New York Giants will look to get their first win of the season when they head out West to face the Los Angeles Rams. Up until last week, the Giants had been competitive in their games, but it appears like the absence of Saquon Barkley is more meaningful than anticipated.
It’ll be a tough hill to climb on Sunday, considering the Rams are 13-point favorites. LA has only played one game at home in its brand-new stadium, beating the Dallas Cowboys by the score of 20-17. In New York’s only road game, it narrowly lost to the Chicago Bears by a score of 17-13.

New York Giants at Los Angeles Rams
Sunday, October 4, 2020 | 4:05 p.m. EST | Watch: FOX
SoFi Stadium – Inglewood, CA
Cooper Kupp – Over 60.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
CB James Bradbury might be the only defender worth mentioning on the Giants, and he’ll be shadowing Rams WR Robert Woods all day. That’s good news for Cooper Kupp, who will certainly get the benefit of avoiding that matchup. New York has not been good at covering slot WRs, as the Steelers and 49ers were able to take advantage of that. The Rams have the NFL’s most efficient offense, scoring in just about 35 percent of their drives; that’s even better news for Kupp trying to get his numbers on Sunday.
Darrell Henderson – Over 64.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Henderson has made the most of this opportunity in the Rams backfield these last two games, with 195 rushing yards and two TDs. As I mentioned earlier, LA has the most efficient offense in the NFL, but New York is dead last. This will likely give Henderson all the opportunities in the world to run wild over the Giants defense.

Daniel Jones – Under 16.5 Fantasy Points
Aside from a rough first half in Buffalo last week, LA’s defense has looked fantastic. Led by All-Pros Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, this is a unit that is putting a thumping on some of league’s more turnover-prone teams. Danny Dimes will certainly give the Rams some chances to make big-impact plays, which makes them one of the better fantasy units to use this week. So, where one fantasy total will rise, the other must fall. Jones hasn’t shown that he can hold on to the ball with regularity yet, and I’ll be taking him to fall under 16.5 fantasy points.
