Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers continues his comeback season, going 21 of 28 for 249 yards and three touchdowns with one fumble lost. Rivers has excelled under new offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and should pray he comes back in 2014. If not, Rivers value should not be as highly regarded.
Giants running back Andre Brown had 81 yards on 16 carries for a 5.1 YPC. Brown has played well without platoon partner David Wilson, sporting a 4.3 YPC for the season and 424 yards in just five games. Keep an eye on the Giants backfield in 2014 because if there’s a bell cow, he’ll be extremely valuable. Brown could be it.
Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks had five catches for 135 yards and an insane 27 YPC. Nicks hasn’t put up a ton of stats but when he’s in the zone, there’s not many better. He’s averaged 16.1 YPC and, if extrapolated, would eclipse 1,000 yards again. He’s sure to sign somewhere else in 2014 and, if he can stay healthy, Nicks can be a decent dynasty WR2.
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck had two more sacks, giving him seven in three games. However, Tuck is 30 and a free agent and is unlikely to reproduce his 2013 production.
