An encouraging performance for Eli Manning
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Playing his first game without star wide receiver Victor Cruz, who's out for the season with a torn patella tendon, Giants quarterback Eli Manning still managed to bounce back from arguably his worst game of the season with one of his best Week 7 at Dallas, completing 21 of 33 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns.

It was his fifth game in six with multiple touchdown passes and his second with at least three. And he did it against a defense that had generally kept quarterbacks out of the end zone, recording nearly as many interceptions (seven) as it had allowed touchdown passes (eight) prior to Week 7.

Though two of his touchdown passes went to rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham, who wasn't even available to him the first four weeks, Manning did a nice job of spreading the ball around. None of the touchdowns went to his two leading receivers, Larry Donnell and Rueben Randle.

Judging by this performance, Manning knows how to make use of the weapons the Giants have and doesn't need Cruz to remain successful in Fantasy. His bad games can be really bad, but his good games have been frequent enough for you to give him another shot when he returns from a bye Week 9 against Indianapolis.

Giants' Eli Manning tosses three scores Week 7
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Giants quarterback Eli Manning tossed three touchdowns Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Manning completed 21 of 33 attempts, gaining 248 yards. He threw three touchdowns, and did not turn the ball over. Manning was able to find success against a Cowboys' defense that shut down the Seahawks Week 6. He was consistently able to throw from a clean pocket, and did not take a sack. Manning averaged a solid 7.5 yards per completion during the contest. Odell Beckham Jr. wound up being Manning's go-to target in the red zone, hauling in two scores during the game. 

The Giants are on a bye Week 8.

Wait to see how Eli Manning adapts
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a mess from the beginning Week 6 at Philadelphia, losing top wide receiver Victor Cruz in the third quarter probably didn't help. Cruz suffered a season-ending injury, so Manning will have to find a way without him. And given his track record of extreme highs and lows, it's dangerous to assume he will right away.

He has other weapons, of course. Rueben Randle has actually been the Giants' most-targeted receiver this year, ahead of even Cruz, and Odell Beckham is a first-rounder who missed the first four weeks with a hamstring injury. Tight end Larry Donnell has had some big games as well, though he hasn't been involved as much recently.

It's just that with quarterback being as deep as it is, you really don't need to gamble on Manning until we see how he adjusts. It's not like his matchup Week 7 at Dallas is so great. The Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, but because of all their interceptions, they've allowed the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Manning was off to a nice start this season and may prove he's just as effective without Cruz as with him. But you want to let him actually prove it.

Eli Manning roughed up in shutout loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Giants could not run the ball Sunday night, and they couldn't protect Eli Manning either. Manning took six sacks and failed to lead a scoring drive in the 27-0 loss at Philadelphia.

Manning completed 13 of 23 throws for a season-low 151 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. It was a major step back for Manning, who had thrown for eight touchdowns and run for another in the three previous games. 

Manning will try to bounce back Week 7 at streaking Dallas.

No reason to shy away from Eli Manning
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Giants quarterback Eli Manning is off to a great start, having thrown for multiple scores in four straight games, yet Fantasy owners have been slow to come around to him, starting him in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.

It's understandable, really, with quarterback being such a deep position and Manning having a history of inconsistency, both from week to week and year to year. But if you don't have a slam-dunk starter at the position, meaning an Aaron Rodgers or Andrew Luck type, Manning's matchup alone is reason to give him a shot in Week 6.

The Giants are at Philadelphia, which ranks 29th against the pass, allowing 274.2 yards per game, and has given up the second-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. The Eagles were responsible for Kirk Cousins' 427-yard, three-touchdown performance back in Week 3, and because they're a strong offensive team, opponents are generally motivated to continue throwing the ball against them.

I think Dave Richard's ranking of Manning for this week -- fifth among quarterbacks -- is about right. I might also start Philip Rivers over Manning, but otherwise, he's golden.
