Giants | Eli Manning's ankle looks fine

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:13:07 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) has shown no ill effects during camp from ankle surgery that sidelined him for earlier offseason activities.

Fantasy Tip: Although it's good news that Manning is healthy, it doesn't change the fact that he will be playing behind a questionable offensive line and has led the NFL in interceptions three times. Draft him as a QB2.

Giants | Eli Manning doesn't run at camp

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 20:15:52 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning didn't run with the team at training camp Monday, July 21, and threw on the side with coaches instead. Manning said that not running had nothing to do with his offseason ankle surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Manning just didn't want to run, and when you are a star QB, you donít have to. Consider him a QB2 in most fantasy formats heading into the season.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he has been working hard on learning offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system this offseason. "It's reenergized me," Manning said. "I'm trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don't have 10 years. I have a few months."

Giants | Tom Coughlin sees big things for Eli Manning

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 13:03:31 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is in line to return to playing at a championship level in a more up-tempo, West Coast offense, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Coughlin thinks the process of Manning and the rest of the players learning a new process and system will make them more successful and productive.

Fantasy Tip: Manning had one of his worst statistical seasons in 2013 behind a weak offensive line. Behind Victor Cruz in the passing game, the G-Men have an intriguing cast of youngsters with plenty of upside. We think the new offense should help, too, but not enough to push Manning out of QB2 territory.

Giants | Eli Manning has learning curve with new offense

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 10:53:20 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning, who has taken repetitions in organized team activities, admitted that there is a bit of a learning curve this offseason when it comes to learning new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense. "Only seven practices, so no, we haven't gotten everything down. I'm not 100 percent on everything going on," Manning said. "There are still some learning curves and things I gotta digest and think through. But the more reps you get at, the more looks you get, the better you're getting."

Fantasy Tip: Manning had his worst statistical season in 2013, as he tried to carry the team too much and wound up making bad decisions the majority of the time. Coming off offseason surgery and learning a new offense isn't ideal, either, although it'll be hard for him not to improve on his numbers in 2014. Regardless, Manning is no more than a midrange QB2 with upside in some weeks based off of matchups.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. selected 12th overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 18:23:28 -0700

The New York Giants selected Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: They decided to go with a complementary weapon for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Eli Manning is still a sound fantasy backup who has a bit more potential if New York can protect him a bit better. Beckham is a better long-term prospect than for 2014, but he's a capable reserve fantasy catcher due to his speed. Maybe Ben McAdoo will use him creatively.

Giants | Former OC defends Eli Manning

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:28:16 -0700

Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said in a radio interview this week that it is "ludicrous" to say QB Eli Manning is declining. "There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort," Gilbride said. "I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line. They certainly made a move to do that by bringing in three interior offensive linemen and as soon as they get somebody that's going to be productive for them as an outside receiver. WR Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go to match up, bump and run (and) go win for them."

Giants | More on Eli Manning's surgery

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 12:33:29 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said he should be able to run again in six weeks after undergoing a "debridement" of his left ankle Thursday, April 10. "I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," Manning said. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle." Manning's timetable should have him ready for the majority of the team's offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Manning should be good to go for Week 1 of the regular season. All offseason workouts with the offense will be important for Manning and the rest of the receivers since they'll be learning a new system under Ben McAdoo. Manning remains more valuable as a QB2.

Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:12:14 -0800

With the hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the New York Giants are admitting that they will change up their offensive approach to be more successful in 2014. "We're going to try to compromise the system with what we have here," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "However, there will be change, and that change will be very positive and very well-received by our team and players. And if our players are scrambling around to learn a new system -- good. That's another fire in their rear end." The new offensive scheme should help WR Victor Cruz, and it'll require QB Eli Manning to go through his progressions quickly and deliver the ball to playmakers in space.

But he's not a scrambler and you've got to give him some help."
