    Tough call but the Giants don't have a lot of pieces to defend the pass and the pieces they do have will probably be focused on Dez.


    Also, as we all know, Jason Garrett's offense lets the defense dictate a lot of what we do.

    If they load up on Dez, which is highly likely, Miles and Witten could have a big day.

    Plus Miles is a slot guy.

    If it's PPR I think i'd go Miles easy but standard league it would be a tough call because I think Nicks is more likely to get a touchdown.


    Miles usually crushes the Giants too.

    I would start Austin, no question. Nicks is coming back from a groin injury and may not be 100% whereas Austin is healthy and will be working the slot, and he is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL. Plus, if the Giants are going to double anyone, it's going to be Dez and Witten. I think Miles is going to have a great game.

    I'd start Nicks...if this weren't a Cowboys board and you weren't a Cowboys fan. But it is, so I don't see how this is really a question. :)

    Are you implying that we're suggesting Austin because we're Cowboys fans?

    Im guessing it ended up being a push in a PPR league and Nicks probably was better in a standard right?
