As of the time writing this, we don't know who'll be starting for the Giants, but for now, we'll expect Manning. He played well on Monday night for a guy who's been sitting on the bench for nearly three full months. The Dolphins are the next team up on the schedule, and while they've struggled to stop the run, the Giants haven't exactly been able to run the ball with any success. There have been just two games all season where the Dolphins have allowed less than two passing touchdowns, while they've allowed three or more on four occasions. That's why we've seen only Sam Darnold and Brian Hoyer finish outside the top-16 quarterbacks against them. Keep in mind that Darnold actually should've, but the overturned touchdown in that game shifted things. Eliminating all rushing production out of quarterbacks, the Dolphins have allowed 0.59 fantasy points per pass attempt, which ranks as the second-most behind only the Raiders. This is important for someone like Manning, who obviously offers nothing on the ground. He also has no mobility, but the Dolphins pressure the quarterback an average of just 29.1 percent of the time, which is the lowest mark in the league. When kept clean, Manning has completed 66-of-95 passes for 708 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception this year. He's a middling QB2 this week and one who might get into the top-15.

Eli Manning officially starting Week 15

Eli Manning is the starter for Week 15 when the Giants take on the Dolphins at home.

Fantasy Impact

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.
