WR Odell Beckham Jr.
QB Davis Webb
WR Tavarres King
RB Wayne Gallman
LB Keenan Robinson
OL D.J. Fluker
TE Matt LaCosse
Is Fluker hurts as well?

Going in with 2 back ups on the OL seems weird to me.
On second thought, with the injuries  
MBavaro : 9/10/2017 7:21 pm : link
to 2 WRs and a RB, I guess it makes sense.....
Piss poor move IMO...

...not to dress Fluker.

We're now down to seven O-linemen before the game even gets underway.

One injury and wer're left with one backup.
7 ol has been the norm

For years... unless there isn't enough healthy players at other positions

Sorry Slim... not the norm.
Looks like a lot of...

2TE and 3TE sets tonight, given the lack of talent we have active at WR tonight. Realistically there only 2 WR's worth putting on the field with the Offense, if they can help it.
Disagree, ms. We've done it a lot. Last year Newhouse and Jones

were typically the active reserves.

+1. I bet we have EE and Ellison on the field together a lot
going to be very close to the vest offense with max protection

hopefully they can sustain drives for a bit to keep the d from gassing by 2nd half

A lot of pressure on the Defense to perform at a ridiculously high level tonight. I hope they can do it, but it's really not fair to expect them to be able to shut down the Cowboys like we'll most likely need them to.

Until this Offense actually proves they can put points on the board, I can't have confidence they will. There's simply too many consecutive years now of them showing they could not, so it's tough to have any faith in them without their proven big play player who has done the lion share of what little scoring they've produced the last several years.
Wheeler getting a jersey over Fluker

is a mild surprise IMO. I always assumed if Flowers goes down, Pugh slides out to LT...maybe they trust Wheeler enough to play in a pinch

Agreed. Jones has to be active because he can play center and guard. But I thought Fluker would be active over Wheeler because Pugh can play LT.
It makes sense to me; seems that we don't want to shuffle  
yatqb : 9/10/2017 8:00 pm : link
the whole OL if an OT goes down. Props to Wheeler for winning the confidence of the coaches.
I listened to Pat kirwin over the weekend. You carry 8 and dress 7.

It's absolutely the norm. You have to go back to 2012 to find the last time the Giants dressed more than 7 OL with any regularity. Feel free to check for yourself on Pro Football Reference if you'd like.
