As the video board inside @MLStadium revealed earlier: rookie RB Michael Cox expected to start for the Giants tonight.

Fantasy Impact: 

It was reported earlier today that Peyton Hillis, fresh off the streets, would get a bulk of the work tonight, but it makes more sense for it to be split up. Hillis is better suited for short yardage and pass protection, while Cox may get early-down work. Neither are expected to be a great options, but then again, Brandon Jacobs wasn't supposed to be last week either. Expect the Giants to use a pass-heavy attack against the Vikings.
