If Sterling Shepard truly is as good as they are saying, Eli might just be in for the best season of his career. The thought that he might improve upon 4,400 yards and 30 touchdowns, but is being drafted in the ninth round is just absurdity. You could certainly do worst at QB than Eli, so if you are without a QB late into the draft, don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Eli Manning played into the second quarter and finished 4-9 with a 44.4 completion percentage. He totaled 44 yards through the air with a long pass of 22 yards. Manning was also sacked once and lost nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Manning did not have a spectacular start to the preseason and sloppy play from his offensive line was a big part of it. Although lackluster, this performance shouldn't concern fantasy owners too much as Manning doesn't typically shine in preseason. However, the final "dress rehearsal" game against the Jets on August 27th could be a chance for the veteran Quarterback to prove he is ready to start the regular season.

With Ben McAdoo staying in New York, I think we can count on Manning to continue getting a lot of passing opportunities. Last season, he had the most of his career with 618 and finished with his best passer rating ever. I think he will build on that with the help of Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard this season

Manning averaged 94 RZ passes since 2014 which is good for third most in the league and more than 85% of their RZ scores came via the air. Thank you Ben McAdoo.

477.16, 442.14, 551.98, 471.58. Those are the point totals for the number one fantasy QB for the past four years in a league awarding 1 point per 25 yards passing, 1 point per 10 yards rushing, and 6 points for all TDs. Throw out Peyton Manning's 551.98 point record-breaking outlier of a season where his

Sheperd and the return of Cruz make Manning look like a QB1 play
The NY Times | Aug 9th
Manning has the fourth-most attempts and sixth-most passing yards. Since McAdoo took over as OC.

Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and maybe, just maybe, a 90 to 95% version of Victor Cruz could see Eli Manning top career highs in passing this year.

Manning had his best statistical year in 2015 and with an even better offense, he could actually improve in 2016. In fantasy, at least.

Promoting offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to head coach was huge for QB Eli Manning's fantasy potential in 2016. Manning has 8,846 yards and 65 touchdown passes playing in McAdoo's system the last two seasons. The additions of WR Sterling Shepard and RB Paul Perkins in the NFL Draft could give him added value.
