Maybe Eli Manning can revive himself on MNF against the Vikings

Sunday night ended with a crazy/interesting finale with the Colts winning 39-33. Unfortunately, Andrew Luck was probably my best pick last week followed by Jamaal Charles. The rest were mediocre, but likely not anything to win you a competition.
I apologize. But what makes one successful, is the ability to move on and learn from past failures. Let’s look at rosters for the weekday game at DraftKings.com
Eli Manning, $6,600. Manning is Manning, but the Vikings defense is… a question mark. Manning should get at least two touchdowns and 250 yards and that makes him a decent pick.
Adrian Peterson, $8,600. If there’s a running back I’m spending on, it’s AP. He’s actually healthy unlike the other choices and the Giants are brutal. Sign him up. DeAngelo Williams, $4,600. With Doug Martin hurt (as of now), I have to go with D Will even though he didn’t do much against the Rams. He doesn’t cost much so it’s fine.
Vincent Jackson, $7,000. Probably the easiest pick of the day. VJax is getting a ton of targets from Glennon and is killing it. Carolina won’t stop him either. Must play right here. Victor Cruz, $7,100. The Vikings don’t have much of a pass defense and Cruz is a tad more trusty than Nicks. Gotta go with Cruz and hope for a big day.
Hakeem Nicks, $6,000. (flex) I have the money so why don’t spend on the best guy available? Nicks is a better play then Smith and Jennings.
Kyle Rudolph, $4,400. There isn’t really a TE that stands out this week and maybe Freeman will start a connection with his tight end. Even if he doesn’t, I’m not wasting much money on him.
Josh Brown, $3,000. Seriously, I’m not a Giants fan. They should move the ball just fine and Brown will get opportunities. Giants, $2,200. No, I’m not sold on this pick, but Josh Freeman with a new team in primetime? I’ll take it.
