Eli Manning completed 28-of-53 passes for 429 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.
In his first year under new OC Ben McAdoo, Eli Manning set a career-high in completion percentage (63.0). His 14 interceptions were his lowest since 2009 and his 30 TDs were most since 2010. It all came with Odell Beckham emerging as a freakish top-flight wideout, and with Victor Cruz (knee) missing most of the year. Eli will turn 34 years old next week, but the scheme combined with the woeful pass defenses of the NFC East give him 2015 fantasy appeal. He was fantasy's No. 11 quarterback through 16 weeks this year. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 05:48:00 PM

Eli Manning completed 25-of-32 passes for 391 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.

For the second straight week, Eli was absolutely locked in. He dropped perfect dimes to both Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle, audibled perfectly to runs and took just one sack against a very good front four. Over the last two weeks, Manning has completed 72.7 percent of his passes with a 6:0 TD-to-INT ratio. He gets the atrocious Eagles secondary in Week 17's meaningless finale.

Eli Manning completed 23-of-34 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Redskins.

All three of Manning's touchdowns went to Odell Beckham, who he targeted 15 times. His highlight was a 35-yard strike to Beckham where he looked off the safety. It was a needed breakout after Manning struggled against Tennessee and Jacksonville the last two weeks. Manning will be a QB2 for Week 16 against St. Louis.

Eli Manning (back) is active for Week 15 against Washington.

Manning was listed on the injury report with a back issue, but practiced in full. The Giants inactives are OL Eric Herman, CB Jayron Hosley, LB James Davidson, RB Chris Ogbonnaya, LB Jacquian Williams, and OT James Brewer.

Eli Manning (back) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Eli set the Redskins ablaze with five all-purpose TDs in Week 4 and gets to face them at home Sunday. He's a recommended streamer in the fantasy semifinals.

Eli Manning (back) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice, but "did everything."

"There weren't any real restrictions on him," were the words of coach Tom Coughlin. If that's the case, it's unclear why Manning was listed as "limited," but so it goes. Manning is a high-end QB2 for Week 15 against the Redskins' pathetic defense.

Eli Manning completed 26-of-42 passes for 260 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Titans.

The Titans' pitiful defense made Manning look competent for much of the day. Marqueston Huff later got Eli for a hilariously-easy 23-yard pick-six, but Manning was rolling before that. He hooked up with Odell Beckham for a 50-yard gain early before finishing off the same drive with a 15-yard touchdown to OBJ. Manning could come onto the streaming map next week against the Redskins.

Eli Manning completed 24-of-34 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

He took four sacks and lost two fumbles. The Giants were down four starters on the offensive line and struggled to pass protect. After opening the game with three straight scoring drives, Manning was shut down in the second half. His only touchdown was a three-yard pass to Preston Parker. Manning will be a streaming option for a matchup with the Titans in Week 14.

Eli Manning completed 29-of-40 passes for 338 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday night's Week 12 loss to the Cowboys.

Manning played one of his better games coming off his five-interception performance against the 49ers. He had two first-half touchdowns to Odell Beckham, and later hit a wide-open Adrien Robinson at the goal-line. Manning's pick was a bad overthrew to Preston Parker in the red-zone that allowed Dallas back in the game. He now has a 5:7 TD/INT ratio over his last three starts. Manning will be a streaming option against Jacksonville in Week 13.

Giants owner John Mara recently gave Eli Manning a vote of confidence.

It's worth noting that Mara's comments came before Manning threw five picks in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. "We still think he's in his prime and still has a lot of good years left," Mara said optimistically. "It lifts the whole franchise when you have a quarterback who can play at that level." Fans and writers can often be far too quick to write off players, but Manning's TD:INT ratio is now 36:38 since the start of last season. He's posted a 6.9 YPA and 75.8 QB rating during the same timespan. Manning turns 34 in January, and 2015 is the final year of his contract. The Giants would be foolish not to at least consider a post-Manning future.

Eli Manning completed 22-of-45 passes for 280 yards with one touchdown and five interceptions in Sunday's 16-10 Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

Bad Eli face was out in full effect, even against a depleted 49ers secondary. He once again had repeated miscommunications with Rueben Randle, looking like he was throwing the game on a couple of the picks. So after a five-game streak that saw Manning throw just one pick, we're back to square one heading into a Week 12 home game against the Cowboys. Eli's TD-to-INT rate does stand at 18:11 one year after a ridiculous 18:27 campaign.

Eli Manning completed 29-of-44 passes for 283 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 10 loss at Seattle.

Consider Manning was in a rainy Seattle against the Legion of Boom, it was a reasonably fair performance. His lone interception was on a bomb that Odell Beckham tipped in the end zone and fell into the arms of Earl Thomas. The good news is that the emergence of Beckham has given Eli a legit go-to guy, allowing him to go over 248 pass yards in three straight games and throw six touchdowns during that span. He'll be a QB2 against the 49ers at home in Week 11.

Eli Manning completed 27-of-52 passes for 359 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Giants' 40-24, Week 9 loss to the Colts on Monday night.

The stat line looks much better than the tape, though Eli wasn't helped at all by his receivers. Rueben Randle dropped a third-down pass, while Preston Parker muffed three balls. Manning, however, was missing high at times and battling accuracy issues. He also took three sacks and fumbled twice, losing one. Eli hasn't tossed an interception in four games, but coming off the bye, it was an extremely disappointing performance. The G-Men head to Seattle for Week 10.

Giants GM Jerry Reese believes the team has been "too cautious" on offense this season.

"We need to be more aggressive," Reese said at Monday's presser. "You need to score points in this league to win." The Giants are walking a fine line, as the caution is by design after Eli Manning and the offense's abysmal 2013. Riskier passes and deeper drops have been eliminated in favor of quick-hitting, high-percentage throws. It's undoubtedly a cautious approach, but worlds better than the one the G-Men took in 2013. We'd ultimately expect Reese's words to be little more than lip service. OC Ben McAdoo is going to stay the course.

Eli Manning completed 21-of-33 passes for 248 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Manning's box score looked better than he played, but the adjustment to life after Victor Cruz (knee) went smoothly. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham were both sharp, with Beckham showing an ability to play out of the slot. Eli is firmly a solid QB2, but with a bye and then tough matchups (IND, SEA, SF), shallow leaguers won't lose too much by moving on.
