Eli Manning throws one TD in loss to the Lions

Eli Manning completed 22 out of 32 passes for 239 yards with one touchdown and one interception and was sacked five times against the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Manning on the season so far has 439 yards passing with one touchdown. Manning was regularly put under pressure, culminating in him being sacked five times. Despite the return of star wideout Odell Beckham, New York's passing attack accounted for just one play of over 20 yards. While Manning's interception only came after rookie Evan Engram tipped a pass, the rookie was on the receiving end of the Giants' lone touchdown thus far this season -- an 18-yard connection with Manning during the second quarter. Following two atrocious offensive performances, Manning and company are tasked with righting the ship at the division-rival Eagles in Week 3.

Eli Manning has ugly start in season opener vs. the Cowboys

Eli Manning completed 29 of 38 passes for 220 yards and one interception and was sacked three times in a 19-3 loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

The entire Giants offense struggled in the absence of Odell Beckham (ankle), with Manning unable to do much even against an inexperienced group of Cowboys corners. The main issue seemed to be the deficiencies of the offensive line, as Manning was constantly under pressure and had no running game to help open up passing lanes. While Beckham's impending return should help Manning move the ball easier, the Giants' blocking up front is clearly a problem and could be a liability moving forward.

Eli Manning plays well in victory over Jets

Eli Manning finished the regular season dress rehearsal completing seven of 14 passes for 121 yards with an interception.

Fantasy Impact

The offensive line play is a bit of a worry for Manning, who was hit as he threw on the interception. Once Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall are back in the lineup, however, Manning should be a relatively steady fantasy contributor.

Eli Manning struggles to score in short outing

Eli Manning went 10-for-14 with only 80 passing yards, but zero interceptions, and zero touchdowns in Monday's preseason Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants and Manning are looking to have a big year with the addition of receiver Brandon Marshall opposite Odell Beckham Jr and rookie tight end Evan Engram. Unfortunately, Beckham and Marshall both left the game with injuries, so the fantasy outlook for Manning may have taken a bit of a stepback barring any major injury news on those two. With everyone healthy though, Manning projects to be a quality fantasy quarterback for the 2017 season.

Eli Manning throws one touchdown in loss to the Packers.

Eli Manning completed 23 out of 44 passes for 299 yards with one touchdown, one interception, and lost a fumble in a 38-13 loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Eli Manning on the season had 4,027 yards and 26 touchdowns. Manning was victimized by multiple drops on the part of his receivers throughout the game, but he still turned in a serviceable stat line. He started off the game hot, completing seven of his first 10 throws, and also fired a 41-yard scoring dart to rookie speedster Tavarres King in the third quarter to bring New York to within 14-13 at the time. However, a Giants defense that appeared to have Aaron Rodgers' number for the majority of the first half seemed to deflate after another successful Rodgers' Hail Mary just before intermission, and the game got progressively away from them in the second half. Manning's 13th season thus ends in disappointing fashion, but he did manage to throw for 4,000 yards for the third straight campaign, although his 86.0 QBR was notably his lowest in the last three seasons.
