#14 vs. IND

Giants general manager Jerry Reese wants Eli Manning to be more aggressive and take shots down the field. "I just think, as an offense, we have to be more aggressive," Reese said. "I think at times we're a little bit almost too cautious with what we're doing offensively." (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Other than the prospect of Eli reverting back to his interception happy 2013 form, this is good news for Manning and the Giants' passing offense. With the Colts' secondary getting beaten badly by Pittsburgh in Week 8, the Giants' Monday Night Football matchup at home vs Indianapolis should be a high scoring affair.

Fantasy Impact: Manning and the passing offense moved the ball reasonably well vs. the Cowboys. But there wasn't much of a run game so Eli was forced to spread the ball around. Randle, Donnell, and Beckham Jr. all posted nice stat lines due to Eli's efficiency in Week 7. It was a far cry from Week 6's disaster vs. Philadelphia. The Giants are on bye in Week 8, but play at home against Indy in Week 9.

Eli Manning threw for three scores and 248 yards against the Cowboys. He added a carry for 11 yards as well.

Fantasy Impact: Manning didn't seem to miss Victor Cruz on Sunday. He connected with his new starting receiver, Odell Beckham Jr. for two scores, a nine yarder and a five yarder, as well as Daniel Fells for 27 yards. One of the biggest takeaways was the Giants OL, which didn't give up a single sack.

Eli Manning was unable to do anything against the Eagles defense in Week 6. He was held to only 151 yards and was sacked 6 times on a night where the offensive line regressed back to its pre-season horrific form.

Fantasy Impact: Eli Manning remains a solid QB2 for fantasy purposes, despite losing his top WR, Victor Cruz, to a season ending knee injury. The Giants still maintain a number of receiving weapons on offense and will look to rebound in Week 7 at Dallas.

Eli Manning and the Giants' offense was not as sharp in the Week 5 win against Atlanta - but Eli did complete 19 passes on 30 attempts (including 2 TD passes) for an overall QB rating of 104.9.

Fantasy Impact: Eli Manning remains a solid QB2 now that the new Giants' offense has found a rhythm. Manning should certainly be rostered and started in leagues that start 2 QBs; and will serve as a solid bye week replacement in other formats. The Giants face the Eagles, and their suspect secondary, in Week 6.

Eli Manning threw for 300 yards, 4 TDs and added a one yard rushing TD against the Redskins on Thursday night. Eli also threw an interception - which should have been ruled a TD pass to Rueben Randle (who maintained possession in the end zone before the ball popped loose and was caught by Keenan Robinson on Washington).

Fantasy Impact: Manning's stats could have been even better, had he not been replaced by Ryan Nassib in garbage time. Coming off a 234 yard/2 TD performance in Week 3, Manning and the Giants' new offense are now rolling. The consistent play by the offense and the Giants' OL, combined with the potential NFL debut of Odell Beckham in Week 5, now makes Eli a very solid QB2 play/bye week QB replacement in all formats.

Most notably, Eli Manning did not throw any interceptions and was not running for his life for most of the game, despite facing a strong Texans' DL. Eli Manning finished with a great QB rating of 123.2.

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for Eli Manning and the new Giants' offense. In Week 2 we finally saw signs of life on offense and Week 3 certainly continued the trend. Despite the strong performance, Eli Manning should be considered a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes until we see more consistency from the Giants' offense and Eli. The Giants will face Washington on Thursday night to kick off Week 4.

By Nicky Tapas, Giants Correspondent, Sun, Sep 14th 9:30pm EDT

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.

By Ilya Keygen, Giants Correspondent, Sun, Aug 17th 8:43pm EDT

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.

By Tim Pilleri, Giants Correspondent, Mon, Aug 4th 6:28pm EDT

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.

Giants General Manager Jerry Reese said this week that the team needs to be more aggressive on offense than they’ve been while compiling a 3-4 record. Reese’s comments come at a time when Eli Manning is completing 64.9 percent of his passes and on a pace to throw 11 interceptions, which is exactly the kind…

The Colts dropped to 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to last week's game. Keep in mind that Big Ben tallied six of the 14 passing touchdowns the Colts have given up this year last week. The Colts are much tougher on D than they showed; it is not a great matchup for Eli coming out of his bye week.
