Eli connected in a major way with Odell last week and will look to continue that play in London Sunday morning. Keep in mind that his opponent, the Rams, will be playing at 6:30 AM Pacific Time, so that should be a nice advantage for the Giants.

Coming off of a 400+ yard performance in Week 6 against the Ravens, Eli Manning and the Giants' passing game took a huge step back in Week 7 against the Rams. Although the Giants' squeaked out a win over the Rams 17-10 in London, Manning managed just 196 yards passing with no TDs on 24 completions (37 attempts).

Fantasy Impact
Manning's performance was particularly frustrating given the fact that Matthew Stafford threw for 270 yards and four TDs against this same Rams' defense in Week 6. Given Manning's performance in Week 6 against Baltimore, this was a prime matchup for him coming into Week 7. Whether it was jet-lag, poor play-calling or another reason, the Giants' inability to move the ball downfield against the Rams was disconcerting and a clear step-back. At least Manning did not throw an interception which would have further reduced his otherwise pedestrian fantasy numbers in Week 7. The Giants will be on bye in Week 8 and then come out of it facing the Eagles in Week 9 - a team that dominated the Vikings' offense in Week 7. Manning should be benched for the Week 9 contest unless owners have no other choice but to start him due to a number of Week 9 byes.

Fantasy Impact
The Giants offense has been as inconsistent as it gets through the first seven weeks. Manning has only thrown eight touchdowns on the year. The Giants head into a bye week before their game with the Eagles.
