New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 14 of his 22 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-16 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: The Redskins were a disaster on offense with Mark Sanchez leading the way, and Manning took advantage of great field position in the blowout win. Don't bank on a repeat performance against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 14 of 22 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns in the Giants 40-16 win over the Redskins. The Giants offense exploded in the second quarter with 27 points and some of Manning's best plays of the day involved simply handing the ball off to rookie star Saquon Barkley. The Giants offense is enjoying a second-half resurgence but that hasn't led to huge numbers from Manning. His three-touchdown performance is only the fifth time this season he has finished a game with multiple touchdowns. The Giants are trending upwards but Manning should remain on the fantasy bench the rest of the season.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and the Giants offense is trending in the right direction heading into Week 14 against the Redskins. Manning has seven touchdowns to only two interceptions over his last four games and now will face a Redskins defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Manning's numbers are decent this season but most of his passing yards have come throwing check-down passes to running back Saquon Barkley in garbage time. Washington will give up plenty of passing yards but have held opposing passers to only five touchdown passes over their last four games. Manning has not been fantasy viable all season and that trend should continue in Week 14.
New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said "Eli's our starter" heading into Week 14 against the Redskins. There is a "good chance" that rookie Kyle Lauletta will once again serve as the backup to Eli Manning this week. Manning is clearly running on fumes at age 37 and looked bad again in Week 13 in the overtime win against the Bears, going 19-for-35 for 170 yards (54.3 completion percentage) with a touchdown and interception. Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had as many TD passes as Manning in the game. The Giants may want to get a look at Lauletta under center before the end of this lost season. Manning is a low-end QB2, at best, for as long as he keeps starting games.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will start again in Week 14 versus the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Pat Shurmur, who added there is a 'good chance' Kyle Lauletta will be his backup again this week.
Fantasy Spin: While Manning has been better this year than last, the Giants aren't exactly winning games because of him either. Make no mistake, the clock is ticking. Lauletta may not be the future at the position for the Giants, but the team owes him an opportunity to show what he has as soon as the 4-8 Giants are officially eliminated from playoff consideration.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 19 of 35 passes for 170 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Giants upset over the Bears win overtime 30-27. Manning was held down most of the game by an elite Bears defense but made some key throws when it mattered. The Giants offense runs through rookie running back Saquon Barkley and the hope that Manning will make a few plays. He found Odell Beckham Jr. in the end zone for a wide-open score but the touchdown pass now gives Manning only 15 through 12 games this season. The veteran quarterback is not a top-15 play in fantasy among quarterbacks heading into Week 14.
The Chicago Bears defense will look to stay white-hot when they roll into MetLife Stadium to take on an inconsistent Giants offense. The Giants have blue-chip playmakers in Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. but have struggled with veteran Eli Manning under center of a porous offensive line. The Giants O-Line has already surrendered 38 sacks this season, tied for second in the league. The Bears defense has been dynamite all season with 34 sacks, 20 interceptions and five defensive scores. The Giants offense has allowed five different team defense's to post 10-plus fantasy points against them, a number the Bears have eclipsed in each of their last four games. The Bears defense is a must-start in Week 13.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will be hard-pressed to produce in Week 13 against a Bears defense that has nine interceptions over their last four games. Chicago's defense is allowing the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing passers but a lot of that production has come in garbage time. They have at least one interception in nine of their 11 games and Manning has six interceptions over his last seven played. Manning's 14 touchdowns this season is at the bottom among starters in the NFL and his 11.2 yards per completion is 22nd in the league. Manning is not a strong play in fantasy for Week 13.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 26 of 37 passes for 297 yards, a touchdown and an interception against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Nov. 25.
Fantasy Spin: Manning played reasonably well Sunday, though after tossing five TDs and no INTs over his last two games the veteran threw one of each on Sunday against a depleted Eagles secondary. The loss also effectively ended any lingering hopes of a playoff run. That kind of letdown can be tough, especially when you have a rested, physical Bears team coming to town next week.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 26 of 37 passes for 297 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Giants 25-22 loss to the Eagles. The Giants mustered only three points in the second half after Manning tore through the Eagles secondary to start this must-win game. It has been a brutal season for the veteran quarterback but his fantasy production would be even worse without rookie standout Saquon Barkley. Manning has now thrown one or fewer touchdowns passes in seven games this season and will have to face an elite Bears defense in Week 13.
The Philadelphia Eagles defense has a strong matchup in Week 12 and is a recommended start in most fantasy formats. While they were shredded 48-7 by the New Orleans Saints just last week, the Eagles have a much easier game on tap against the New York Giants. While the Giants offense and quarterback Eli Manning have certainly improved over the last few weeks, they are still inconsistent at best and have allowed the most sacks in the NFL this season (36). The Eagles may give up a few points this week, but they're bound to reach the quarterback a few times too, setting up the potential for some big defensive plays.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is on a mini-hot streak heading into the team's Week 12 matchup against the Eagles. Manning has five touchdown passes over his last two games with zero interceptions and a QB rating of 133.2. He will go up against an Eagles defense that Manning failed to throw a touchdown against in Week 6 but Philadelphia is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. The Eagles are coming off an abysmal performance by allowing 48 points to the Saints and now their season is hanging in the balance. Manning has not been a top-15 quarterback play in fantasy all season but his arrow is pointing up heading into Week 12.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 17-for-18 for 231 yards and two touchdowns during the team's Week 11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Spin: After tossing eight touchdown passes over the club's first eight games, Manning has thrown five in the last six days. Sure, Tampa's defense might give up 30 points to Archie at this stage, but the G-Men's offensive resurgence at least merits some attention. With the free-falling and injury-depleted Eagles up next, Manning might actually be an option next Sunday.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 17 of 18 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns as the Giants took care of the Buccaneers 38-35. Manning now has five touchdown passes over his last two games and pretty much had his way with a weak Tampa defense. He had two huge conversions for 41 and 54 yards to Odell Beckham Jr. and Evan Engram respectively and finished the game with a QB rating of 155.8. The Giants season may be lost but the offense has flashed a heartbeat the past two weeks. Manning, however, will continue to sit outside the top-15 of fantasy quarterbacks moving forward.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, and the Buccaneers have allowed an NFL-high 23 touchdown passes this season.
Fantasy Spin: Manning isn't having a great year, but he was able to take advantage of friendly matchups against Carolina and San Francisco, tossing multiple scores in both games. Tampa Bay might have the worst secondary in the league, so Manning could be a sneaky streaming option.
On one hand, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can't defend. On the other hand, the New York Giants can't offend (except their fans). Classic movable object meeting a stoppable force situation. The Giants added guard Jamon Brown last week and shored up their line enough to only give up one sack. With weapons all around the field, it doesn't matter that Eli Manning is still throwing to them. No way should the Buccaneers D/ST be recommended this week but if you have to start them it might not be the worst idea.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will have an excellent opportunity to stay hot in Week 11 against the Buccaneers. Tampa's defense has been porous all season long and currently is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Manning is coming off of a three-touchdown performance in Week 10 and now will go up against a Buccaneers defense that has allowed multiple touchdowns to seven of the nine quarterbacks they have faced this season. All seven of those quarterbacks posted more than 20 fantasy points in those games, a number that is a fair expectation for Manning in Week 11.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught four passes for 73 yards, including two touchdowns, in the Giants 27-23 win over the 49ers. Beckham was wide open in the first quarter for a 10-yard touchdown reception and then caught a nice floating pass from quarterback Eli Manning for a 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Beckham Jr. was targeted a team-high 11 times but made the most of his four receptions. The superstar receiver failed to extend his 100-yard receiving streak to three games but now has four touchdowns on the season. Despite the Giants offensive struggles, Beckham Jr. is still putting up elite numbers and is well on his way to his fourth 1,000-yard season.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 19 of 31 passes for 188 yards and three touchdowns in the Giants 27-23 comeback win over the 49ers. For Manning, it was his first multiple touchdown game since October 7 and now has 11 touchdowns on the season through nine games. Manning has struggled with execution in the red zone but connected with Odell Beckham Jr. twice for scores and then fired a pass to Sterling Shepard with less than one minute to go in regulation to put the Giants up for good. Manning is currently on pace for 4,000-plus passing yards this season but is barely averaging more than one touchdown pass per game. Manning is not worth a roster spot in single-quarterback fantasy formats moving forward despite the veteran taking a step in the right direction in Week 10.
New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 19-for-31 for 188 yards and three touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: Manning posted his lowest yardage total of the season but had a season-high three touchdowns during the game. He should have some success next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues.
