Start ‘Em: Domenik Hixon – WR|Giants (vs. Cleveland Browns)

Like Manning is a must-start this week, Hixon is a borderline must-start against the Browns. Joe Haden is out for the Browns which means a suspect secondary just got even more suspect. Even better for Hixon is the fact that he’ll be directly competing with Victor Cruz and Martellus Bennett for catches as the Giants will be without Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden who have been big targets this year. Barden has been playing behind Hixon but has seen his fair share of targets but Hixon now has no one of real note to steal targets out from under him. Don’t expect Hixon to go insane, but it’s not out of the question that he could do significant damage against the Browns. Cruz is in line for a big day and now that Hixon is the unofficial No. 2 receiver expect similar numbers out of him on Sunday. Si
