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.
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.
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.
