Giants | Eli Manning comfortable in offense

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 09:00:05 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has become comfortable in the new offense, and he has worked efficiently in the no-huddle. In Week 4 against the Washington Redskins Thursday, Sept. 25, Manning was 20-for-27 on throws 10 yards or shorter, and all four of his touchdown passes came on such passes. "Yes, starting to like the offense," Manning said. "It's fun. Each week we have some new things and different plays that will work. I think everybody, offensive linemen, receivers, are starting to feel the tempo of things and see what we can do in this offense. We just have to keep working." Head coach Tom Coughlin and offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo have successfully tailored their offense to fit their personnel.

Fantasy Tip: Manning pleased his owners and then some with his Thursday night performance. Next week against the Atlanta Falcons could yield more big numbers for Manning. Odell Beckham Jr. could return in Week 5, too, giving the offense a legitimate deep threat.

Giants | Eli Manning sharp in rout

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 20:47:27 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw for 300 yards and four scores and rushed for a touchdown in the team's 45-14 win over the Washington Redskins Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is one of the streakiest quarterbacks in the game, but his performance Thursday was a reminder of just how good he can be. The problem from a fantasy standpoint is that you never know if Manning is going to be the player that has won two Super Bowl MVPs or the one that has led the NFL in interceptions three times. He is a high-risk, high-reward pick at FantasyScore.

Giants | Eli Manning struggling on deep passes

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:30:29 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has looked more comfortable in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system the last two weeks, but he's still struggling on deep passes. Manning is 0-for-7 with an interception on passes past 20 yards this year. He completed only 28.6 percent of downfield passes for a passer rating of 62.9 last year, too. Manning completed 36.3 percent of downfield passes from 2009 to 2012, though.

Fantasy Tip: Manning finally may be coming around in the new offense, but his lack of success down the field is concerning. As Hanzus notes, the return of Odell Beckham Jr., likely in Week 5, could help boost that part of Manning's game. Tonight against the Washington Redskins, Manning ($5,800 at FantasyScore) could yield some serious profit.

Giants | Eli Manning more comfortable

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 09:48:08 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is starting to feel more comfortable in the team's new offense after he completed 75 percent of his passes in Week 3 with two touchdowns. "It's coming around," Manning said. "You need some live games. Practice is one thing. Live games are different. It's a different speed, a different pace. It's seeing things. That's where you get your best reps and a better feel for things."

Fantasy Tip: Manning has had his struggles in the new offense but appears to be getting a better handle of the scheme. Manning costs $5,800 on FantasyScore this week, but owners may want to hold off on using him until he produces on a more consistent basis.

Giants | Eli Manning has support from coordinator

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 15:52:00 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has struggled to pick up the team's new West Coast offense in four preseason games and the regular season opener, but offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo continues to believe that Manning is the right guy for the job. "He is the perfect fit for this offense," McAdoo said. "He is very smart. I thought that if there was anything encouraging about what happened in the game (the 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions), it was the comfort level with his feet and the progress that he is making fundamentally." McAdoo said that progress is coming, but "we aren't going to apologize" if it takes weeks or longer. McAdoo also said that he wants to get the ball to WRs Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle more often.

Fantasy Tip: The G-Men are facing solid cornerbacks from the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, so more struggles could be in store. Until Manning gains your trust, it'd be wise to avoid him in FantasyScore.

Giants | Eli Manning a work in progress

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:16:55 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning struggled to grasp the team's new West Coast offense in the preseason, and it carried over into Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Arizona Cardinals head coach and offensive guru Bruce Arians thinks it could take as long as half a season to reprogram a veteran quarterback in a new offense. "I try to never judge a quarterback in a new offense until Week 8," Arians said. He said QB Carson Palmer didn't understand their new vertical attack last year until Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The injury-depleted Cardinals played well against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, and that could continue if Manning and the Giants continue to struggle on offense. It'd be wise to avoid Manning and his $5,200 salary at FantasyScore.

Giants | Eli Manning wearing guard

Mon, 01 Sep 2014 08:22:41 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (knee) had a sleeve on his left knee Monday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: It's not believed to be a serious ailment.

Giants | Offense a work in progress

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 14:44:35 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said the team's new offense has room for improvement, but he is not concerned. "I think we're still trying to get it exactly the way we want it," Manning said Friday. "It's a work in progress. There's definitely room for improvement, and that will be a season-long situation, which I think is normal. That's not a bad thing. I think we have to know what we do well and where we need to make our improvements and be harsh on ourselves to make those improvements."

Fantasy Tip: While the passing game has struggled through out the preseason, the Giants have had success running the ball. The team may lean on the running game in the early part of the season while the passing game catches up.

Giants | Eli Manning to start Thursday

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:21:35 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the rest of the starters will play around 15 to 18 snaps in the team's preseason finale against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. The Giants offense has struggled in the preseason, and Manning threw his first touchdown pass last week.

Fantasy Tip: The G-Men will not head into Week 1 firing on all cylinders on offense, and it might take a good portion of the early season for them to get on the same page. That doesn't speak well for Manning and the rest of his offensive weapons.

Giants | Receivers inconsistent

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:19:25 -0700

New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and Mario Manningham have not made many big plays this preseason. Cruz initially caught a long play-action pass Saturday, Aug. 16, but dropped it. Randle has one catch for 12 yards in three games. Jernigan has not carried over his momentum from late last season, per head coach Tom Coughlin, and also dropped a throw from Eli Manning Saturday. Corey Washington has three touchdowns but received fewer first-string practice reps than Manningham in first-string practice reps Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Add in Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury, and there's little reason to believe in this offense right now. At least this may make them cheaper fantasy options.
