New York Giants at Washington Football Team (-3.5)

The Giants are dealing with several notable injuries on offense. Engram missed the season opener with his calf injury and apparently hasn’t recovered enough just yet to feel comfortable suiting up. Lemieux will also miss Week 2 after playing 17 snaps in the season opener, and to make matters worse, Barkley is questionable. Coming off of a torn ACL from last season, Barkley has been a limited participant in practice all week. He played just 29 snaps in the season opener and rushed 10 times for 26 yards.

Washington will be without Fitzpatrick for the next 6-8 weeks or so, but on a positive note, star running back Antonio Gibson (shoulder) did not receiving an injury designation for the game. He was a limited participant in practice Monday, but returned as a full participant Tuesday.
