The Giants' Eli Manning is always going to be the quarterback no one wants, but he typically ends up being a quality Fantasy option. That was the case again in 2015 when he finished No. 8 in standard leagues with 4,436 passing yards, 35 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, and he should once again post solid stats. He had nine games with at least 20 Fantasy points, including three in his final four outings, and hopefully the continuity of Ben McAdoo being promoted from offensive coordinator to head coach to replace Tom Coughlin works well for Manning. He now has consecutive years of McAdoo calling plays of at least 4,400 yards, 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, and he should be in that range again. And now he's the lone remaining Manning of his family in the NFL, so maybe that leads to extra motivation for a big year in 2016. He's worth using as a low-end starting option in all formats and should be drafted with a mid- to late-round pick.
Manning completed 24 of 43 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He also lost a fumble. The veteran could have had a bigger day, but the Giants' success on the ground and his inability to create many big plays capped his production. Despite his team's inability to make the playoffs yet again, Manning actually enjoyed one of the best statistical seasons of his career, setting a new personal best of 35 touchdown passes and generating 4,436 yards through the air. A coaching change is expected to occur in New York this offseason, but Manning should have the supporting cast to remain productive regardless of who is at the helm next season.
Manning completed 15 of 29 passes for 234 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Vikings. With Odell Beckham suspended and the rest of the New York offense sorely lacking in talent, Manning had little chance for a productive night against the now-healthy Minnesota defense. Still, he made some throws that were inexcusable, including all three of his interceptions. Manning found Rueben Randle for a 70-yard touchdown on a broken play late in the third quarter, but with the Giants unable to score on their next two possessions, Ryan Nassib handled the final drive of the game. Manning should fare better in Week 17, facing a soft Eagles pass defense with Beckham back in the lineup.
Manning connected on 29 of 45 passes for 245 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He also gained four yards on his only carry of the game. The veteran performed at an elite level in the face of a tough matchup Sunday, leading the Giants all the way back from a 21-point fourth-quarter deficit before the Panthers won the game. Manning tossed four touchdown scores for the second consecutive week, giving him 21 over his last seven games. Manning and company are fighting for their playoff lives at the moment, and he will look to continue his excellent play versus the Vikings next week.
Manning completed 27 of 31 passes for 337 yards (10.9 YPA), four touchdowns and no interceptions against the Dolphins Monday night. Manning's 87.1 completion percentage was a career high, and the Giants moved the ball with ease. It should be tougher going next week against the Panthers.
Manning received an X-ray after Sunday's loss to the Jets, but he said that everything checked out fine, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Although he didn't sound too worried about his injury, Manning declined to mentioned which part of his body was affected. The Wednesday injury report may provide some hint, but it doesn't sound like he's in much danger of missing a Week 14 matchup with the Dolphins.
