Giants HC Steve Spagnuolo said Wednesday that his "hope" is that QB Eli Manning plays all of this weekend's game against the Redskins. We're not sure why he needs to "hope" anything -- if he wants Manning to play the entire game, Manning will play the entire game. He's still not better than a low-end QB2, especially with WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram banged up.

Giants interim HC Steve Spagnuolo said QB Eli Manning will start Sunday's finale against the Redskins but suggested that QB Davis Webb could also get some action. "Eli will start, and then we'll probably take it bit by bit," Spagnuolo said. "We just take it and see how it goes." It makes plenty of sense for the Giants to get a look at their 3rd-round rookie. Webb reportedly got some 1st-team reps in practice last week. This will be a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

The Giants are expected to go back to QB Eli Manning following the firing of HC Ben McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. What a mess. Manning is sitting 29th among QBs in fantasy points per game and won't be more than a lower-end QB2 for Week 14. His return at least stabilizes the fantasy outlooks for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram.

The Giants are benching QB Eli Manning in favor of QB Geno Smith for Week 13, HC Ben McAdoo announced on Tuesday. And it sounds like Manning might be riding pine for the rest of the season because the G-Men also want to get a look at rookie QB Davis Webb. “Geno will start this week,” McAdoo said. “Over the last five games, we will take a look at Geno, and we will also give Davis an opportunity.” Manning has completed a decent 62.5% of his passes this season but averaged just 6.1 yards per attempt. How much of the blame belongs to him vs. his supporting cast is debatable. What's not debatable is that the Giants need to start planning for the future with Manning turning 37 in January. Smith's last significant action came in 2014 -- and it wasn't pretty: 59.7% completion rate, 6.9 yards per attempt, 13 TDs, 13 INTs. He brings rushing ability and has a plus matchup vs. Oakland this Sunday. But Smith can't be trusted as more than a low-end QB2.

Giants HC Ben McAdoo pinned the team's offensive struggles this past year on QB Eli Manning, specifically pointing out his 20 turnovers (16 INTs, 4 fumbles). McAdoo also wants to see his QB get the ball out of his hands quicker. "He's got to play with fast feet, he's got to sit on his back foot and be ready to hitch into a throw," McAdoo said. "Things aren't always clean in this league." This follows GM Jerry Reese conceding earlier this offseason that Manning is "probably on the back nine of his career." Manning's starting job isn't in danger. But it's tough to feel good about his 2017 fantasy prospects when his own team is seemingly cooling on him.

Injury Predictor

Dub Eli Manning the “ironman” of the NFL. He has played in every game since 2005, and rarely appears on the Giant’s injury report. The last time he sat out an NFL game was his rookie season of 2004 — when he took a back seat to then-starter Kurt Warner for the first 7 games of the year.
