News: Brinkley had 12 tackles and a sack Sunday against the Patriots.
Impact: Ever since taking over the middle linebacker role two weeks ago, Brinkley's been a force. He's worth a look in IDP leagues when the Giants face the Redskins in Week 12 after their bye.

News: The Giants signed Brinkley Wednesday, two days after he was released by the Cowboys.
Impact: Brinkley, an 11-game starter for Minnesota a year ago, gives the Giants an experienced backup behind oft-injured middle linebacker Jon Beason. There could be other reasons for the move as well, since New York hosts Dallas in Sunday's season opener.
