Giants WR Dwayne Harris said the team is working on "throwing the ball down the field more."
"We’re definitely trying to work on throwing the ball down the field, throwing more deep passes," Harris said. According to PFF, Eli Manning threw the ball more than 20 yards downfield on just over 10 percent of his 2015 dropbacks, one of the lowest rates in the league. Pushing the ball downfield more often could play to Odell Beckham and rookie Sterling Shepard's strengths, but the offensive line will need to hold up to make it happen. With Manning coming off two of the most efficient seasons of his career, the Giants should not be looking to change the formula too much. Jul 14 - 9:58 AM

Eli Manning said the Giants are "definitely" a playoff team this year.

"We added some great players in the offseason," Manning continued. "It’s just a matter of, hey, the talent is there, can we put it together, can we find a way to win the games and play our best football when we need to?" Despite a stunning spending spree in free agency, the Giants still have significant holes on both sides of the ball, most notably at linebacker and along the offensive line. The NFC East remains wide open, however, and their major holes should be masked by a potentially dominant defensive line and a potent passing attack. It would be a surprise if the Giants did not better their 6-10 mark from last season.

Eli Manning completed 24-of-44 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

OC Ben McAdoo has been tremendous for Manning and his fantasy owners the past two seasons. Manning has posted back-to-back 4,400-yard seasons and set a new career-high with 35 touchdowns this year. He wraps up the season having completed 387-of-619 passes (62.5 percent) for 4,436 yards and a 35:14 TD:INT ratio. He just turned 35 on Sunday and signed a new five-year, $101.5 million contract back in September. Manning should have another 3-5 seasons in him. If coach Tom Coughlin resigns or is fired and McAdoo doesn't return, it'd be a real blow to Manning. McAdoo has made Manning more efficient, and the Giants played at the second-highest pace in 2015.
Jan 3 - 5:15 PM

Eli Manning completed 15-of-29 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Vikings.

Manning didn’t make his first completion until halfway through the second quarter. All three of his interceptions were bad throws, with his low point a second-quarter pick-six to Vikings S Harrison Smith. Manning took a season-high four sacks and did nothing outside of a 72-yard touchdown to Rueben Randle. He should rebound with Odell Beckham returning in Week 17, but Manning will be a risky play despite a plus matchup with the Eagles.

Eli Manning completed 29-of-46 passes for 245 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in New York's 38-35, Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

Manning didn't really get going until the Panthers backed off after going up 35-7 midway through the third quarter. Manning then really got cooking against softer coverages, but still tossed an absurdly bad interception in the end zone, targeting a double covered Hakeem Nicks on a desperation fade. Manning will be back in the QB1 conversation against the banged up Vikings in Week 16.

Eli Manning completed 27-of-31 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns in the Giants' 31-24, Week 14 win over the Dolphins on Monday night.

Manning completed his first seven passes of the game and rarely had a ball hit the ground with just four incompletions against a Dolphins defense that was getting no pressure on the quarterback and failing to cover the league's best receiver, Odell Beckham, at times. Manning's first score was a simple six-yard hookup with Rueben Randle, who sat down in an empty space in zone coverage. The second touchdown went to Will Tye from five yards out on a corner route just ahead of halftime. The third and fourth touchdowns were strikes to Beckham, one from six yards out where Beckham did a great job to drag his second foot, and the other an 84-yard score on a blown coverage. Manning bounced back Monday, but gets 13-0 Carolina at home on a short week in Week 15.

Eli Manning is not on the Week 14 injury report.

Manning had an X-Ray on his ankle following last week's game, but the scan did not show any damage. He will be all systems go for a nice matchup against the Dolphins Monday night.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 11:03:00 AM

Eli Manning's Sunday X-ray was to his ankle.

Manning said Sunday that "everything's good." He'll likely miss some practice reps this week, but will be under center against the Dolphins. The game is on Monday Night Football, so he has an extra day to heal up. Manning will be a QB1 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Eli Manning said "everything's good" after undergoing a post-game X-Ray.

Manning would not reveal what part of his body required the scan, but he confirmed nothing is broken. This "injury" will likely come to nothing, but it is a note to keep in mind if Manning misses any practice time this week.

Eli Manning completed 18-of-34 passes for 297 yards with one touchdown and one interception and rushed once for two yards in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Eli had a dream matchup against a banged up Jets secondary but couldn’t take advantage of it. His fourth-down interception to Rontez Miles was a complete debacle. In retrospect, the Giants probably should have kicked the field goal instead of tempting fate. Manning was bailed out a number of times on great catches by Odell Beckham and Will Tye. New York’s nonexistent running game has hurt Manning all year and that continued to be the case on Sunday. The Giants will head to Miami for a must-win game against the Dolphins in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:24:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 26-of-51 passes for 321 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Giants' Week 12 loss to the Redskins.

Manning was absolutely terrible in this one. He threw three picks and had at least three more which could have been intercepted against a defense with six interceptions total entering the game. The first interception was a bad drop by Shane Vereen, but the next two were bad throws. Eli saved his fantasy day with a 40-yard touchdown to Rueben Randle on fourth down and a 21-yard touchdown to Odell Beckham late in the game, but it was too little too late. The injury issues along the Giants' offensive line bear some of the blame, but Manning put up a terrible performance on a day the New York could have taken control of the division. Despite the bad day, Manning will remain a back-end QB1 next week against the Jets.

Eli Manning completed 24-of-44 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 27-26, Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

Manning threw for 251 yards and both of his touchdowns in the first half, staking the Giants to a 17-10 lead. Manning hooked up with Odell Beckham from 87 yards away to kick the scoring off for the Giants in the first quarter. Beckham roasted Malcolm Butler on the play, and then FS Devin McCourty took a bad angle, letting Beckham run all the way to the end zone. Manning's second score was a perfect toss to the back left corner of the end zone to Dwayne Harris from one yard out. The Giants head into their bye before traveling to Washington for Week 12. Manning is a borderline QB1/2.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 08:00:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 26-of-40 passes for 213 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran the ball once for -1 yard in the Giants' Week 9 win over the Buccaneers.

Manning didn’t bring his A-game this week but you could hardly blame him with the awful weather conditions he had to play through in rainy Tampa Bay. His success was mostly limited to short and intermediate passes. Until the fourth quarter, Manning didn’t have a completion longer than 16 yards. His chemistry with Odell Beckham was especially hit or miss with the duo connecting just nine times on 17 passes. The last two weeks have really been a microcosm of Manning’s season. Some weeks he’s unbeatable and other times he looks like a below average quarterback. Fantasy owners get to roll the dice with Eli again next week against New England.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 07:46:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 30-of-41 passes for 350 yards and six touchdowns in New York's 52-49, Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Tossing six touchdowns in a loss feels like a uniquely-Eli achievement. The 101 combined points were the third most in NFL history. Aside from a fumble that the Giants recovered, Eli was basically perfect, routinely flaming the Saints' woeful secondary, Brandon Browner in particular. One of Manning's touchdowns was a total luck job that he threw across his body and the field on fourth down, but Rueben Randle also failed to make a play on what might (emphasis on might) have been TD No. 7 late. Booming and busting this season, Manning has a juicy Week 9 matchup in the Bucs.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 04:49:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 13-of-24 passes for 170 yards, zero touchdowns and zero turnovers in New York's 27-20, Week 7 win over the Cowboys.

It was a strange game for the Giants, who got out-possessed 38:04-21:56, and mostly just sat back and watched as the Cowboys made mistakes. Eli had to do very little to help secure the win. The scoreless performance was his first since Week 1, where the Giants also played the Cowboys. Manning has had an up-and-down year, but he'll be an intriguing QB1 on the road against the Saints in Week 8.
