For nearly two weeks we have wondered how

Cheap Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , and if, the New York Giants would rebound from their Thursday night loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After what seemed like an eternity between games, we got our answer in yet another loss, this time against the Atlanta Falcons. Just watching the game revealed some good and entirely too much bad with the Giants. Let's take a closer look at the stats from the game and see what they have to tell us. OffenseQuarterbackMonday night’s loss to the Falcons was a mixed bag for Eli Manning. The Giants’ quarterback had one of his best games from a raw statistical point of view. He threw for 399 yards and a touchdown, completing 71 percent of his passes and a season-high 10.5 yards per attempt. Manning attacked every level of the Falcons’ defense, finally taking advantage of a poor secondary to employ their playmakers. However, Eli also missed some passes he probably should have connected on, and also made some poor decisions which cost the offense opportunities for points. All in all, Manning had his issues, but he also did about as much as he could to compensate for a nonexistent running game and bad pass protection.Offensive LineThe third version of the Giants’ offensive line — Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Spencer Pulley, John Greco, and Chad Wheeler —was hardly an improvement on the previous two combinations. Once again, Manning was under duress all game long, adding four more sacks to his season total. He is on pace to be sacked 55 times this season, shattering his career-high of 39, set in 2013. As has become a theme this season , each of the Falcons best pass rushers got well within league-average of Eli on their pass rushes, per Next Gen StatsMeanwhile, the blocking for Saquon Barkley in the run game was nearly nonexistent.Skill Positions Speaking of Barkley, who was on the field for 59 of the Giants’ 64 snaps, the looks he received in the passing game weren’t any better than those he got in the run game. He was targeted the second most times with 10, but all of them were in the backfield on either swing passes or as check-downs. The Giants relied on Barkley for easy completions, but never actually set him up to do much of anything with them. Unfortunately, his streak of games with 100 or more scrimmage yards was broken, as he compiled 94 total yards. Given his extreme explosiveness in the open field, it simply doesn’t make sense that the team doesn’t let him run routes down the field, either from the backfield or from the slot or wide receiver positions. But while the Giants’ usage of Barkley is mystifying at best, they finally seemed to figure out how to use Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. Beckham played 61 snaps (95 percent), while Shepard played 59 (92 percent). The two combined for 210 yards on 13 receptions ( 8 for 143 yards and a touchdown for Beckham, 5 for 167 yards for Shepard), an impressive enough box score. But more importantly was how they were used. Finally, the Giants used Beckham and Shepard as the complimentary weapons they are and moved them around the offensive front and targeted them down the field. DefenseFront sevenThe Giants’ front seven had one of their best performances of the season against a porous Atlanta offensive line. The team had three sacks in the first quarter, and notched another 5 quarterback hits and 6 tackles for a loss over the course of the game. For the first time since their Week 3 win at Houston, the Giants consistently got closer than league-average to the quarterback. Olivier Vernon Cheap Jon Halapio Jersey , who played an incredible 64 of 65 snaps — only Alec Ogletree played more — was the spark for the Giants’ defense early in the game. He routinely beat his man and set up his teammates for their own success. However, it was plain to see by the end of the game that he was gassed. He is a very well-conditioned athlete and has a non-stop motor, but playing every defensive snap but one is a lot to ask of a player in his second game back from a leg injury. Fellow starting EDGE player Kareem Martin played 34 snaps (54 percent), making three tackles and a tackle for a loss. Lorenzo Carter (24 snaps) and Kerry Wynn (22 snaps) rotated with Martin. Carter picked up a tackle, a tackle for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hit, while Wynn notched a tackle, a tackle for a loss, a sack, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed.For the first time this season, B.J. Hill lead the defensive tackles in snaps, with 37 (57 percent). He didn’t record a sack, but the rookie tackle once again flashed his power, leverage, and technique with four tackles and a tackle for a loss.Dalvin Tomlinson was close behind, logging 32 defensive snaps (49 percent), and notching four tackles of his own. Damon Harrison brought up the rear for the starters , with 30 snaps (46 percent). Mario Edwards Jr. came up with a quarterback hit and a sack — wiped out by penalty — in his 23 defensive snaps.SecondarySafeties Landon Collins and Curtis Riley each played all of the Giants’ 65 defensive snaps, while Janoris Jenkins played 61, and the recently-traded Eli Apple played 58 snaps. B.W. Webb — who will now be the Giants’ starting corner in place of Apple — played 39 snaps, getting two tackles, as well as two tackles for a loss, a sack, and a quarterback hit.The play of the Giants’ secondary against the Falcons’ passing game is difficult to quantify. On one hand, they held Julio Jones to his lowest per-catch average of the season, but he still caught 9 passes for 104 yards. The problem for the Giants was that they simply did not have the defensive depth to match up with the Falcons’ passing game. James Bettcher found early success by having defensive backs blitz rather than try their hands in coverage, but Atlanta eventually countered by replacing the blitz with the ball. The defense did its job, holding the high-powered Falcons’ offense to just 23 points and giving the Giants’ offense a chance (which it squandered) to build an early lead. But once Atlanta adjusted, they did a fantastic job of finding the holes created by the Giants’ blitz packages and spreading the ball around. Ten different receivers caught passes from Matt Ryan, nine of whom caught at least two passes. All in all, the Giants’ defense had its work cut out for it against Atlanta’s potent offense. And while they were far from perfect, they did about as well as could be expected without the offense providing anything like a lead.Fantasy football waiver wire: 5 adds for Week 5 We’re a quarter of the way through the regular season — even further through the fantasy season — and impactful waiver wire pickups will continue to get rarer. But there’s still a few players widely available who can help your fantasy team over the next few weeks. Let’s take a look at this week’s waiver wire targets:Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis ColtsRostered - Yahoo: 15% | ESPN: 15.5%In two of four games this season, Hines has seen at least nine targets. Against Houston Cheap Will Hernandez Jersey , Hines got 11 targets, which tied for the team lead with Chester Rogers as T.Y. Hilton missed time and it resulted in two receiving touchdowns. Hines played a nice 69 percent with Marlon Mack out and Mack was limited on Monday. Even if Hines isn’t playing 70 percent of future snaps, he might have done enough to earn a role as the receiving back and maybe, more importantly, Andrew Luck’s trust. Hines’s role could be important going forward on a team that’s likely to pass often while trailing.Taywan Taylor, WR, Tennessee TitansRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 3.9%With a healthy Marcus Mariota and Rishard Matthews out of the rotation, Taywan Taylor took over as Tennessee’s No. 2 receiver. Taylor played 63 percent of the snaps for the Titans, the second most among their wide receivers, and his nine targets tied with Dion Lewis for second on the team. His average depth of target (12.1) was just behind Corey Davis against the Eagles. Taylor has the talent to be a consistent contributor in the offense and now it appears he also has the opportunity.T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jacksonville JaguarsRostered - Yahoo: 50% | ESPN: 46.8%This is probably a no-brainer and 50 percent ownership is as high as I’ll go for a player in this column, but it’s important to note Yeldon is still available in half of fantasy football leagues — more than half if you play on ESPN. Leonard Fournette will be out indefinitely, so Yeldon will take the load as Jacksonville’s top back (even though Corey Grant should get more playing time). Against the Jets, Yeldon got 62 percent of the snaps and had 18 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown. He also added three receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown. Without Fournette in the lineup, Yeldon played 58 percent of the snaps against the New England Patriots and 67 percent against Tennessee. The Jacksonville offense is apparently going to go how Blake Bortles goes — a risky week-to-week proposition — but for however long Fournette is out, Yeldon will get a lot of work. Taylor Gabriel, WR Cheap Eli Manning Jersey , Chicago BearsRostered - Yahoo: 6% | ESPN: 6.6%Gabriel finally had his breakout game in Week 4, along with the rest of the Bears offense. But Gabriel has at least seven targets in each of the past three games. Last week, he had 10 targets with an aDOT of 18.1, the seventh-highest depth of the week. In Week 4, Taylor got his seven targets at an aDOT of 9.6 and took that for 104 yards and two touchdowns. His role has grown each week, especially since the start of the season when he was only taking screens and “touch pass” pseudo-handoffs in the backfield. Against the Buccaneers, Gabriel played 79 percent of the offensive snaps, which trailed only Allen Robinson at wide receiver.Chicago will be on a bye Week 5, so you’ll have to stash him for a week before he can be used, but he can turn into a high upside play starting in a week.Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh SteelersRostered - Yahoo: 43% | ESPN: 31.3%In the Steelers offense, Vance McDonald isn’t going to lead the team in targets, but there are enough opportunity and enough chances at big plays for McDonald to be a solid play at tight end. McDonald has received five targets in each of the three games he’s played. This week turned into 62 yards and last week it was 112 yards and a touchdown. McDonald, now healthy, out-snapped Jesse James 62 percent to 44 percent against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.He’ll continue to get decent looks and maybe more if the Steelers’ defense remains a unit that struggles to stop opposing offenses.
