New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said they revamped the run game to use more traps, quick dives and outside zone prior to their Week 6 game when the Giants rushed 32 times for 148 yards against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa rushed for 117 yards against Denver, but it remains to be seen if his performance and the performance of the Giants' running game in general was a fluke. Darkwa is worth stashing, but he is too risky to start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.

Atlanta Falcons WR Marvin Hall posted a 40-yard touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins on his only target.
Huddle Up: Someone had to step up with Mohamed Sanu on the shelf and it was Hall making the big play. Despite the touchdown score he shouldn't be a blip on most people's fantasy radar heading into Week 7.

Detroit Lions C Travis Swanson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Week 3 game and still has a chance to play, but OG Graham Glasgow likely would move to center if Swanson is ruled out. OG Joe Dahl (leg) could move to left guard to replace Glasgow, but he is also listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Detroit's offensive line problems probably would affect their offensive scheme against the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Stafford may be asked to throw more short passes so he can avoid the pass rush. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick could also be more involved in the passing game since the Falcons have struggled against pass-catching backs. Stafford can still be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues, while Abdullah and Riddick would have more value in point-per-receptions leagues.
