He had a great camp and followed it up with a strong game, flying around the field and helping to limit Ezekiel Elliott. He's the team's starting weak-side linebacker and should be a nice source of tackles.

Casillas is having a great camp and is the Giants best linebacker at this point, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

He's fast and has coverage skills the rest of the corps lacks. He'll start on the weak side where he has a chance to rack up tackles as well as plays in the passing game.

Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, the Giants' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he's available to the Giants' linebacking corps, Casillas will likely yield most of the reps on the strong side to Devon Kennard (hamstring). Either way, Casillas holds little sway in IDP leagues with 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack on his ledger to date.

EDGE Analysis

With Uani Unga (neck) also listed as questionable, the Giants may have reduced depth at linebacker. It isn't a major concern, especially with starter Devon Kennard (hamstring) expected to return from a two-game absence.
