Eli Manning completed 26 of 39 passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: Manning turned in a much better performance for the Giants in Week 2. His stat line would have been better but for a few dropped passes by Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle, and a desperation heave interception thrown on the last play of the game. Eli remains a low end QB2 in fantasy.

Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said on Thursday that Eli Manning "is the perfect fit for this offense." He later implied it might take some time to start clicking, and recognizes they need to get Cruz and Randle the ball more. (Source: New York Daily News
Fantasy Impact: After a rough preseason and Week 1, the Giants are already growing impatient with their Quarterback/Offensive Coordinator combination. Until we start to see on the field, it's difficult to recommend starting any Giant but running back Rashad Jennings.

Eli Manning had a rough start to the 2014 season, throwing for only 163 yards with 1 TD and 2 interceptions (18 completions on 33 attempts) against Detroit on Monday night. Manning was rushed for most of the game, as the Giants' OL was unable to stop the Lions' pass rush, and was also victimized by a couple of WR drops and miscommunications.
Fantasy Impact: At this point, Manning is nothing more than a low end QB2, until the Giants' new offense and OL can right the ship. Manning faces a tough Arizona defense in Week 2 next Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

In the last pre-season game of the 2014 season, the Giants first team offense continued its struggles. Eli Manning completed just 1-of-4 passes against the Patriots backups for zero yards, including a horrible miscommunication between Manning and WR Rueben Randle.
Fantasy Impact: In two drives, the Giants first team offense managed just one first down, one three-and-out and two punts against the NE backups. Because of the Giants' issues on offense, Eli Manning is, at this point, a low end QB2 for fantasy purposes. The Giants open the season Week 1 on Monday night at the Lions.

Left guard Geoff Schwartz, the top OL target signed by the Giants this past offseason, suffered a dislocated toe injury during Friday's game against the Jets and may be out for a long while/could be season ending. (Source: Newark Star-Ledger/NJ.com
Fantasy Impact: The injury to Schwartz is a blow to an offensive line which has looked horrible this pre-season. The Giants may opt to use rookie Weston Richburg, who performed well on the Giants' first team scoring drive Friday, at left guard. With an OL already struggling prior to the injury, the loss of Schwartz may further negatively impact the productivity (and fantasy value) of Eli Manning and the Giants' passing game.

Eli Manning was 12 of 21 with a touchdown in the Giants's 4th preseason game vs the Jets on Friday. He also fumbled twice (recovered both), and threw a couple of close call non-interceptions. The Giants offense did not score until the Jets 2nd team defense was on the field. (Source: NJ.com
Fantasy Impact: Eli's box score doesn't look as bad as it was against the Jets first team defense. The offensive line has been woeful and last night they lost lineman Geoff Schwartz to a dislocated toe. On the bright site, Manning did toss a very nice 15 yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle. That connection has some promise this season.

Manning was an abysmal 1-for-7 for six yards in the Giants third preseason game against the Colts. He played a total of four drives.
Fantasy Impact: Manning didn't show much in this game for fantasy owners to move him up the draft board. Coming off a career high 27 interceptions, he should not be owned in one QB leagues.

Eli Manning completed 6 of his 7 pass attempts for 43 and no touchdowns on Sunday. Eli also took a sack and lost a fumble on the play.
Fantasy Impact: Manning might be completing a lot of passes to Rashad Jennings this season. Jennings caught 3 of Eli's 7 attempts. Manning performed pretty well getting the ball out of his hands quickly in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system. With the offensive line underperforming, Eli's quick passing could benefit Rashad Jennings most of all.
