QB - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Dan Graziano of ESPN reports Eli Manning will announce his retirement Friday.
Manning is set to hold a press conference on Friday. The two-time Super Bowl champ appeared in just four games last season as Daniel Jones claimed the Giants’ starting quarterback job. Manning, the first overall pick in the 2004 draft, finishes his career with 366 touchdown passes and two Super Bowl MVP awards.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 20 of 28 passes for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins.
Manning has made the most of his two starts with Daniel Jones on the shelf with an ankle injury, and he now has four touchdown passes, three interceptions, and 486 yards passing the last two weeks. If he gets another start next week, he could be a decent streaming option in deeper formats for fantasy owners desperate for a quarterback as the Giants take on the struggling Redskins.
Eli Manning is the starter for Week 15 when the Giants take on the Dolphins at home.
Manning's match up is a good one but you cannot lock the veteran in for a QB1 performance. Currently he is ranked as the 22nd best quarterback heading into Week 15 according to FantasyPros' Expert Consensus Ranking. Manning is a streamable candidate but don't get mixed up thinking he is a top 8 option this week. While there are better candidates to stream, Manning should be a reliable QB2.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 15 of his 30 pass attempts for 203 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Manning had a big first half on Monday, completing 35-yard and 55-yard touchdown passes to rookie wide receiver Darius Slayton. However, Manning and the Giants were held to just 29 yards of total offense and no points in the second half. Daniel Jones reportedly wanted to play on Monday but could miss 2-4 weeks according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport, so it's possible that Manning could get at least one more start.
Eli Manning will start Monday’s contest against the Eagles.
With Daniel Jones officially ruled out, Manning will draw the start for MNF. He will make his first start since Week 2. Manning will have all of his weapons with the exception Evan Engram. Eli can be used as a steamer in a plus matchup against a beatable Eagles secondary.
