Eli Manning completed 28-of-37 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants' 31-21, Week 10 loss to the 49ers.
Manning didn't throw any picks, but he did donate the ball to the 49ers on an absurd fumble. Inches from the ground on a sack, Manning for some reason attempted to heave the ball forward. The 49ers scored a touchdown four plays later. Although his play has hardly been sterling, Manning hasn't been one of the Giants' biggest problems, especially since Sterling Shepard's return two games ago. He'll be firmly on the streaming radar for next week's game against the Chiefs' swinging gate defense. Nov 12 - 7:26 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "barring a catastrophic event," the Giants have no plans of benching Eli Manning.

Coach Ben McAdoo seems to have back-tracked on an earlier remark when he suggested the Giants could "throw another guy in there to get a look at." If the Giants have any doubt about Manning returning as their starter in 2018, it would make sense to give third-round rookie Davis Webb an extended look down the stretch, but apparently they still feel Eli has something left in the tank. Perhaps the Giants will reconsider at a later date but for now, fantasy owners can expect Manning to finish out the season under center.
Nov 12 - 9:10 AM

Speaking Monday, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Eli Manning remains the team's starting quarterback, but that the team could "look at" Geno Smith or Davis Webb "at some point."

"That doesn’t mean at some point in time we won’t throw another guy in there to get a look at," was McAdoo's exact quote. Dealing with few weapons, shoddy protection and his own decline, Manning is in the midst of a mostly miserable season. It would behoove the 1-7 Giants to eventually get a look at third-rounder Webb. 36-year-old Manning hasn't missed a start since 2004.
Nov 6 - 5:19 PM

Eli Manning completed 20-of-37 passes for 220 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Giants' blowout Week 9 loss to the Rams.

The stat line doesn't do justice for how bad Eli played in this game. He missed countless open receivers, leaving a boatload of yardage and at least two touchdowns on the field. Eli's two successful scoring passes went to Tavarres King early and Evan Engram late in garbage time. Even against a weak 49ers defense in Week 10, Eli will be a shaky streamer considering his poor to-date performances and lackluster supporting cast.
Nov 5 - 3:59 PM

Eli Manning completed 19-of-39 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Giants’ Week 7 loss to the Seahawks.

He was sacked once for a loss of three yards. The Giants brought a knife to a gunfight on Sunday, trotting out Roger Lewis and Tavarres King as starters against arguably the league’s best secondary. It obviously didn’t help that Seattle’s Legion of Boom was well-rested coming off their bye in Week 6. Needless to say, Manning was predictably ineffective on Sunday, showing little chemistry with any of his receivers outside of stud tight end Evan Engram. Manning kept the mistakes to a minimum on Sunday, though his lost fumble on a fourth-quarter strip sack was an absolute back-breaker. Unless Manning can summon a time machine that brings Odell Beckham back from his broken ankle, he won’t be in the fantasy discussion when the Giants host the Rams after their bye week.
Oct 22 - 9:09 PM

Eli Manning 11-of-19 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Broncos.

The Giants went with a conservative gamescript with their top-three receivers sidelined. Manning wasn't asked to do much, but did enough to get a win. His touchdown was a red-zone throw to Evan Engram, who accounted for over half of Manning's yards. Manning has a matchup with Seattle in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 11:40 PM

Eli Manning underwent an X-ray on his neck following the Week 5 loss to the Chargers, but the results came back clean.

The test was needed after Manning took a knee to the head from teammate LT Ereck Flowers inadvertently following a takedown by Joey Bosa. It's a rare piece of good news for the Giants from Sunday after losing Odell Beckham to a broken ankle. Manning threw for just 225 yards with a pair of scores in the collapse against the Bolts. He'll be fine for Week 6 against Denver.
Oct 8 - 6:35 PM

Eli Manning completed 30-of-49 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns while rushing three times for 22 yards and another score in the Giants' Week 4 loss to the Bucs.

Even with his receivers struggling to catch the ball and Odell Beckham in an out with an ankle injury late in the game, Manning did everything he could to win in Tampa. He scrambled for a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter, the longest of his career, and found Wayne Gallman and Rhett Ellison for touchdowns in the second half. Both scores gave the Giants the lead, but the defense could not hold onto either. After a bad start, Manning has played well the last two games. He will be in the QB1 mix next week against the Chargers.
Oct 1 - 7:32 PM

Eli Manning completed 35-of-47 passes for 366 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles.

The Giants have enough weaponry to elevate Eli in theory, and they nearly executed against Philly. Using an exceptionally fast, up-tempo offense with a short passing game designed for Manning to get rid of the ball quickly, the Giants moved the ball much better than they did in Weeks 1-2, and nearly pulled the upset only to lose on a last-second kick. Manning gets a better matchup in Week 4 against the Bucs. We remain skeptical of him, but he still offers fringe QB1 streamer potential versus vulnerable pass defenses. And Tampa Bay qualifies.
Sep 24 - 5:08 PM

Eli Manning completed 22-of-32 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.

The Giants were terrible on offense much of the night, with Manning getting sacked five times and missing a couple throws. He simply doesn't get much time to throw behind this dreadful offensive line, and his receivers hurt him with a couple drops. Manning still looks close to donezo at 36 years old. The Giants have so many flaws on offense, leaving Manning as a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future. Manning is likely to get pummeled Week 3 at the Eagles.
Sep 18 - 11:37 PM

Eli Manning completed 28-of-37 passes for 217 yards with an interception in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Manning looked completely lost playing without Odell Beckham, leading the Giants to six punts and a field goal. Nine of his completions were checkdowns to Shane Vereen, with just two of his passes going over 20 yards. Manning was sacked three times and faced constant pressures. Even with Beckham likely to return, Manning should be avoided for a Week 2 matchup with Detroit.
Sep 10 - 11:42 PM

Eli Manning completed 7-of-14 passes for 121 yards and an interception in the Giants' third preseason game.

Manning's interception came trying to a force pass on the opening drive. He didn't look sharp, but was playing without Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall. Manning has potential to improve on his 2016 with a better supporting cast. He's locked in as a QB2.
Aug 26 - 8:40 PM

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Giants co-owner John Mara said Eli Manning has "a lot of years left in him."

It's the exact opposite of what Mara and most Giants brass were saying earlier this offseason. In March, Mara said he was open to drafting Manning's successor. The G-Men ended up settling on third-round question mark Davis Webb. Headed into his age-36 campaign, Manning simply wasn't good enough in 2016. Coach Ben McAdoo said as much in March. The G-Men need a rebound.
Jun 22 - 1:14 PM

The Cowboys will host the Giants in the first Sunday night game of the season on Sept. 10.

The schedule is slowly leaking ahead of Thursday night's official reveal. According to the Washington Post, the Giants will also travel to Washington D.C. for the Thanksgiving primetime game. The Patriots are playing in the official opening game of the season on Thursday Sept. 7, though their opponent has yet to be revealed. It's believed to be the Chiefs.
Apr 20 - 1:30 PM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan doesn't expect the Giants to address quarterback early in the draft.

The Giants have talked about drafting a successor to Eli Manning, but it's unlikely Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson would fall to them at the 23rd pick. Coach Ben McAdoo was present for Pat Mahomes' Pro Day as well. Raanan expects the Giants draft a quarterback, though it will probably happen on Day 2. Josh Dobbs, Jerod Evans and Nathan Peterman could be available in that range.
