Eli Manning threw for 12-of-16 passes for 91 yards against the Jets last night in the Giants' third pre-season matchup. Manning had no touchdowns and threw a costly pick-6 at the end of the first half which the Jets' Antonio Cromartie returned for the 59-yard TD. The Giants' starters, including Manning, were then rested in the second half.

Fantasy Impact: Manning looked good at times, but still wasn't that sharp. In addition to the Cromartie pick-6, Manning took a bad sack when Larry Donnell was wide open downfield; and he missed Odell Beckham Jr. on a long outside route after Beckham had Darrelle Revis beat down the sideline. Notwithstanding the somewhat mediocre pre-season thus far for Manning and the Giants offense, Manning should be a lower top-10 QB option in fantasy this season based on the numerous weapons the Giants have on offense, and the fact that the Giants will likely be playing from behind/involved in high scoring games due to defensive woes.

The hype train is in full swing. No one is climbing the rankings faster than Eli. He's going to be a popular reach this year.

First year under OC McAdoo led to a career-high comp % (63.1),4,000 + yards, and 30 TDs.

Odell Beckham Jr. made Eli last year and he ended up turning in a pretty good year. He should be within the 10-15 range again in 2015, if not better.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 30th
In his last 6 games, Manning posted 1,915 yards passing, 12 touchdown passes, 3 picks and a combined QB rating of 102.7. The emergence of WR Odell Beckham Jr. is going to make Manning a QB1 this year.

For as much praise and Bill Lazor gets about the Miami offense, and deservedly so, the Giants unit under Ben McAdoo came in and really got the offense turned around last season. Eli is looking as sharp as ever and the emergence of super star Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. means Manning could easily challenge his career high in TD's. (It's 31 and he threw 30 last year after taking a few games to pick up the system).

Eli had a resurgence last year as Odell Beckham Jr. and new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo reinvigorated him. With the Giants O-Line trying to upgrade and his weapons only getting better Eli could play like a top five QB and yet be picked outside of the top 12. If I miss Big Ben I'm okay with Eli later on.

Value pick; he throws over 4,000 yards and 30+ TD's fairly consistently. I am not a huge Eli fan, but in fantasy it's all about the stats.

The Odell Beckham Jr. effect sure helped Eli last season, but so did the up tempo offense put in place by Bob McAdoo. Last season the Giants ran the second most plays in the red zone and had the third most passing attempts. He can be infuriating at times, but Eli has the pieces set and ready for a good fantasy season.

Eli Manning is currently ranked as the 12th best quarterback based on his ADP. He is being drafted behind the likes of Ryan Tannehill, Tom Brady, and Matt Ryan. Eli’s draft position suggests he’s just outside of most league’s starting position but comes off the board as one of the first backup quarterbacks. Basically, Eli... Read More

Much like any other position there are always quarterbacks that surprise and far exceed their ADP. Just last year there were four QBs with an ADP of QB15 or worse that finished in the top ten (Wilson, Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and Tannehill). The year before that saw Andy Dalton explode for 33 touchdowns and finish... Read More
