NFL fantasy football: Eli Manning won't shine on TNF

It's another week of "Thursday Night Football," and once again the New York Giants are in primetime. After a big comeback last Sunday and a short week to get ready for the Carolina Panthers, how will it affect their fantasy value? We'll give you an idea here.

Analysis: Don't look for Eli Manning to repeat his monstrous Week 2 performance. But he should be respectable nonetheless. Victor Cruz should benefit from Hakeem Nicks' absence. The Giants secondary has been victimized this year, which is good news for the Panthers' Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell. With (likely) no Jonathan Stewart, look for Cam Newton to pick up some of the slack in the running game. Cam could star both with his arm and his legs on Thursday night.
