New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will try and kick start his season when he goes up against the Texans in Week 3. Manning's limited athleticism has really cost him through the first two games playing behind a shaky offensive line. The weapons on the Giants offense are undeniable but Manning's ability to get them the ball is a bit of a question mark right now. He will go up against a Texans defense that has not been dominant but has allowed only 394 passing to opposing quarterbacks, fifth lowest in the league right now. Manning is not worth a fantasy play in Week 3 outside of two-quarterback formats.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was sacked six times in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys, the highest amount since Oct. 12, 2014 against the Philadelphia Eagles when he was also sacked six times.
Fantasy Spin: The offensive line was a disaster, and the team was unable to run the ball at all. Manning passed, dumping it off 14 times to Saquon Barkley on a lot of short stuff as he ran for his life. If Manning is going to survive the season the offensive line is going to have to come together quickly. If you own fantasy stock in Manning, don't expect a lot of downfield stuff in the near future.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning was 33-for-44 for 279 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 2 loss against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: The numbers were decent from a fantasy perspective, but he was sacked six times. He'll face another swarm of pressure in Week 3 against the Houston Texans, where Manning will be a QB2.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 33 of 44 passes for 278 yards and one touchdown in the Giants 20-13 loss to the Cowboys. Manning was sacked six times as the Cowboys defense controlled most of this game. The veteran quarterback was able to pump up his fantasy stats with a late touchdown pass to Evan Engram but the Giants offense certainly isn't clicking yet through two games. Manning will have a tough test on the road against the Texans in Week 3.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will look to put 2017 behind him when he takes on the division rival Cowboys Sunday night. The Giants offense struggled mightily against Dallas last season with Manning completing 60 of 84 passes for 448 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions, leading to only 13 combined points in two games. Manning will have a new cast of weapons to work with this season but the veteran has been a disappointment in past seasons. The Giants skill position players will have plenty of fantasy value for this matchup but fantasy owners need to proceed with caution before starting Manning.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 23-for-37 for 224 yards and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Manning was facing a tough Jaguars defense and was not able to find anyone in the end zone. He should have an easier matchup next week against the Dallas Cowboys but is not a strong starting option.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 23 of 37 passes for 224 yards and one interception in the Giants 20-15 loss to the Jaguars. Manning struggled, especially in the red zone, against a stout Jaguars defense and stuck mostly to the underneath passing game to move the chains. The team was able to draw a couple of pass interference penalties on some deep throws by Manning but it was a less than ideal start to the season. Manning will look to throw his first touchdown pass of the season next week.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will have his hands full to open the season when the Giants host the Jaguars to open the season. Manning is looking to bounce back from a disappointing season in 2017 and will have a tough test right out of the gate. The Jaguars defense last season allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, surrendering 17 touchdowns but racking up 21 interceptions. Manning threw for 3,468 yards last season with 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions but has a replenished cast of weapons this season. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is healthy and rookie Saquon Barkley completely changes the complexion of the offense. Manning's numbers should improve this season but it will be a challenge to post fantasy numbers in Week 1 against the Jaguars. Manning's fantasy value is outside of the top-15 among quarterbacks for the first week.
The New York Giants currently have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster but are not expected to enter Week 1 with more than three players at that position, according to a source. QBs Davis Webb, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are in competition to back up Eli Manning but Tom Rock of Newsday believes that Webb is the most likely candidate to be traded or released because he was brought in by a previous regime.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 17 of his 23 pass attempts for 188 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Friday's preseason victory against the New York Jets. He turned in a QB rating of 97.7, and was not sacked in the outing, either. He really jelled nicely with wide receiver Sterling Shepard in this one, and the pass game looked sharp despite the fact WR Odell Beckham Jr. was held out, TE Evan Engram left with a concussion and rookie RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) was inactive. Once all of the pieces are healthy and in place, the Giants should be a high-octane offense with Manning leading the charge.
Updating a previous report, New York Giants left tackle Nate Solder (leg) was checked out after injuring his leg in practice Thursday, and he is fine. The Giants and their fans can let out a collective sigh of relief after that injury scare. Solder was their high-priced free-agent acquisition, and his presence on the line should help keep quarterback Eli Manning upright.
New York Giants left tackle Nate Solder (leg), who signed a $62 million deal with the team in the offseason, injured his right leg in minicamp practice Thursday. However, the injury didn't look serious and head coach Pat Shurmur said, "I think he's fine." If Solder did suffer a more serious injury, it'd be a devastating blow to New York's offensive line. Solder was brought on to protect quarterback Eli Manning's blind side and be an anchor. We'll update you if this is anything more serious.
The New York Giants selected Penn State running back Saquon Barkley second overall in the 2018 NFL draft. The Giants weren't about to let Barkley get past them at No. 2. With Eli Manning aging and declining rapidly, the G-Men want to upgrade their backfield to make it easier on him. Barkley is arguably the most talented all-around player in this year's draft, and he could easily become a three-down back for the Giants immediately. This pick is bad news for Jonathan Stewart and Wayne Gallman. Barkley will be an early-round pick in both redraft and dynasty/keeper leagues.
ESPN's Todd McShay said it's looking like the New York Giants are dead set on selecting Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at second overall if the Browns pass on him. "It feels inevitable that Saquon Barkley is going to be a NY Giant," McShay said. People in the Giants organization believe in Barkley, and the team may be committed to becoming a physical, run-first team, with Barkley being the face of the franchise for the next 10 years. Some scouts believe that Barkley is a better all-around back than Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, which is really saying something. Even after the G-Men signed Jonathan Stewart in free agency, Barkley would likely become a three-down back immediately in New York if they were to draft him. A strong running game would certainly help take pressure off a declining and aging Eli Manning. Barkley would be a strong early-round fantasy target if he were to land with the Giants.
According to a story published on SI.com, Roc Nation, the group which is representing Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, doesn't want him to play for the Cleveland Browns, instead hoping he goes to the New York Giants at No. 2 overall. The story goes on to state that Roc Nation asked Barkley to demand the Browns not take him, similar to what Eli Manning did to the Los Angeles (then San Diego) Chargers back in 2004. Barkley, for his part, has never considered the request, even going so far as to tell friends about a vision he has. Barkley is thinking about how he would be remembered as a generational athlete if he were to be able to bring a Super Bowl championship to Cleveland. As of now, it appears likely the Browns will take a quarterback with the first overall pick in the draft, meaning Barkley would have to slip to fourth for the Browns to have a shot at him.
Beyond the 2018 season, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning's future is uncertain. "This league, it's one year at a time. That's kind of how it goes. I need to go out there and play well this year, and that's all I'm looking forward to," Manning said. The team's brass hasn't said anything regarding Manning other than that he will enter the 2018 season as the starter, and he'll count $22.2 million against the salary cap this season. The 37-year-old can become a free agent after next season, but it appears he has interest in playing beyond that. The Giants have Davis Webb waiting in the wings, and it's widely believed that they'll select a signal caller with the second overall pick in this month's draft. Manning completed only 61.6 percent of his passes last year with 19 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, but he could bounce back nicely with Odell Beckham Jr. healthy. Still, Manning is more of an underwhelming fantasy backup at this stage of his career.
