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.

Giants QB Eli Manning threw for a mere 193 yards in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys. His lone score came on a 61-yard catch-and-run that saw WR Odell Beckham do most of the work. Manning did throw an off-target INT inside the red zone and lose a fumble in the pocket despite no apparent contact. It was not a confidence-building outing for Manning's fantasy football owners, heading into a Sunday showdown with the Lions. Detroit has played QBs tough in the 2nd half, most notably holding Drew Brees to 0 TD passes and 3 INTs in Week 13.

Giants HC Ben McAdoo believes he can get even better play from Eli Manning. "Eli, I still think his best football is in front of him," McAdoo said on Wednesday. "I still think he's going to take another jump. He really bought into the system and likes the controls he has there. Having another year under his belt with the reads, that's going to clean things up for him. He knows what he likes now, and it's natural for him." Manning’s age (35) suggests he could be declining. But since his awful, 27-INT season in 2013, he’s really flourished under McAdoo. Seeing high volume, Manning has tallied 4,400+ yards and 30+ TDs in each of the last 2 seasons. He’s also posted a manageable 14 INTs in both campaigns. He’s certainly an excellent fit for McAdoo’s system, but hopefully the Giants add some pass catching help on draft day. Regardless, Manning will likely enter the 2016 season as a low-end QB1.

League insiders told ESPN's Mike Sando that Giants QB Eli Manning is trending up at age-34.  "He had the drop-off in 2013, but I thought he really started to come on last year," a personnel director said. "Finally getting him weapons and guys with speed is really going to help him going forward. He is now throwing timing routes that he had not done before in his career ... I'd be surprised if he did not have a good year this year."  It took Manning most of last offseason to settle into new OC Ben McAdoo's offense.  But he finished with a personal-best 63.1% completion rate, 4,410 yards and 30 TDs.  Manning ranked 9th among QBs in fantasy points.  With another offseason in McAdoo's scheme -- plus the return of Victor Cruz and the arrival of Shane Vereen -- Manning could be even better in 2015.

Giants QB Eli Manning has "looked sharp" throughout OTAs, according to insider Jordan Raanan.  That's in stark contrast to last spring, when Manning was obviously uncomfortable in OC Ben McAdoo's system.  "His familiarity with the offense appears to have made a significant difference," Raanan writes.  Manning completed a career-high 63.1% of his passes last season and finished 9th among QBs in fantasy points.  With another offseason in McAdoo's scheme, Manning could be even better in 2015.  He's an excellent draft target at his current 10th-round ADP.

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.
