Eli Manning throws two interceptions Sunday

Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 26 of 45 passes for 250 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Manning was not very good on Sunday, and the calls for Daniel Jones to start in New York are not going to get any quieter, especially if the Giants continue to lose. The Giants will take on the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay next week, but Manning should only be started in deeper two-quarterback leagues.

Eli Manning tops 300 yards passing in Week 1 loss

Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 30 of his 44 pass attempts for one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants were thumped by the Cowboys on Sunday, but Manning's numbers were solid as the team relied on shorter routes to help him get the ball out quickly. He is far from a reliable starter in most fantasy formats, but he does have some appeal in deeper leagues for Week 2 when the Giants face off against the Bills at home.

Eli Manning won't play in preseason finale

Giants quarterback Eli Manning will not play in the team's fourth preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Rookie first-round pick Daniel Jones will get the start.

Fantasy Impact

Shurmur has already said that Manning is the starter, and resting him in the preseason finale only reinforces that statement. Jones is clearly the quarterback of the future in New York, but just when that future becomes the present is up to Manning and how well he plays.

Eli Manning remains the starter in New York, according to Pat Shurmur

When asked about the team's quarterback situation, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said on Friday that "Eli’s our starter, and we’re getting Daniel ready to play. (Jones) has done a good job in the preseason. He’s getting better and he’s going to do continue to do that, so that at whatever time we need him to play, he'll be ready."

Fantasy Impact

Manning remains the starter in New York, but Pat Shurmur is making it pretty clear that the team has been impressed with Daniel Jones and would not be hesitant to turn to him at some point this season. Manning is already a low-end option in fantasy at this point in his career, and the possibility that he could lose the job to Daniel Jones at some point this season makes him an even less attractive option.

Eli Manning has support from ownership

Giants owner John Mara told the press that he "hopes QB Eli Manning has a great year" and rookie Daniel Jones "never sees the field."

Fantasy Impact

What a surprise, Manning has the support of Giants' brass. However, Mara did suggest that the quarterback who ultimately takes the field will be the decision of the head coach and not ownership. While Manning will more than likely be the Week 1 starter, Jones could be thrust into the starting job sooner rather than later, especially if the Giants start slow and anemic. If/ when the Giants are eliminated from postseason contention, then I would expect to see Jones without hesitation.
