  Giants | Eli Manning may not start    Wed Jan 2, 01:27 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning's future with the Giants is cloudy as general manager Dave Gettleman was noncommittal on Manning being the starter in 2019. 'I'm committed to making the best decision in the interest of the Giants. We're in the evaluation process,' Gettleman said.

Footballguys view: Gettleman is being brutally honest about the situation. The Giants passed on taking a quarterback last year in the first round, instead opting for star RB Saquon Barkley. This year with the 6th overall pick, they may choose to go with a rookie quarterback. Manning's time as the Giants starter is coming to a close.

  Giants | Eli Manning set to start Week 17    Mon Dec 24, 12:42 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will make the start against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: The Giants don't have any other choice really. Rookie Kyle Lauletta has been inactive the last couple of weeks and they're not going to be in a trick shot competition ...as that's the only way backup Alex Tanney would be viable as a starter (seriously, look up his trick shots on YouTube).

  Giants | Eli Manning tops 300 yards    Sun Dec 23, 08:08 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 25 of his 33 passes for 309 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16. He also added a rushing score.

Footballguys view: Manning is doing enough to make the Giants entertain keeping him next year, which might not be seen as a great outcome by some (or all sane) Giants fans.

  Giants | Eli Manning to make another start    Mon Dec 17, 01:08 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will remain in the starting lineup in Week 16 versus the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Shurmur believes that Manning gives them the best chance to win. The Giants had rookie QB Kyle Lauletta as a healthy scratch on Sunday and it doesn't seem like they'll turn to him at any point this season. Shurmur also said that Manning has 'years' left as a starter in the league. That's nice he said that, but we still expect the Giants to upgrade the quarterback position this offseason.

  Giants | Eli Manning could return in 2019    Sun Dec 16, 11:08 AM

The New York Giants appear increasingly likely to bring back QB Eli Manning for the 2019 season, since he has played well recently and because they do not appear to have their quarterback of the future on the current roster, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

  Giants | Three scores for Eli Manning    Sun Dec 9, 08:04 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 14 of his 22 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-16 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Everything came easy for the Giants in this game, but it was so easy that Manning's attempts stayed low and ceiling was low with that number. Even without Odell Beckham, Manning was a plus for anyone that used him as a QB2/Superflex. If Beckham can play, we'll consider him in that role next week against the Titans.

  Giants | Eli Manning to remain the starter for now    Mon Dec 3, 12:44 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will start again in Week 14 versus the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Pat Shurmur, who added there is a 'good chance' Kyle Lauletta will be his backup again this week.

Footballguys view: The Giants won against the Bears on Sunday but Manning did not play well. The team will one day want to see what Lauletta has but may not make a quarterback change until they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

  Giants | Eli Manning remains N.Y. starter    Tue Nov 6, 12:08 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will start in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: Shurmur insisted that Manning was going to start in Week 10...but beyond that his future remains unclear. The Giants will likely be moving on from Manning this offseason so at some point they'll want to see what they have in rookie Kyle Lauletta.

  Giants | Eli Manning throws for 316 yards    Sun Oct 28, 05:55 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 30-for-47 for 316 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The touchdown was meaningless and came at the very end of the loss. The Giants are going to have to ask themselves if they are better served seeing where Kyle Lauletta is in his development at some point this year. Manning is lower tier streamer as long as he starts and only because of the quality of his weapons.

  Giants | Eli Manning won't be traded    Tue Oct 23, 05:04 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will continue to man the Giants at quarterback with the trade deadline a week away, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: Manning has not been playing well this season but the team won't trade him and may not bench him in 2018. Fantasy GMs should continue to view Manning as a low-end QB2 each week.

  Giants | Co-owner: Eli Manning decision up to coaches    Tue Oct 16, 12:20 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning was the subject of a question posed Tuesday, Oct. 16, to team owner John Mara at the league's fall meetings. 'When you're 1-5, it generally means everybody has to play better,' Mara told NFL Network. Mara added, though, that he will leave it up to the team's coaches as to whether a quarterback change is needed.

Footballguys view: Manning has become 'Captain Checkdown' this season for the Giants. They could turn to rookie Kyle Lauletta eventually but for now they stick with the two-time Super Bowl Champion. Against a bad Falcons defense on Monday night in Week 7, Manning could look better than he has in most other games this year.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will remain the team's starter, head coach Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 12. 'We believe in Eli,' Shurmur said.

Footballguys view: Kyle Lauletta is still worth an add in 2QB/Superflex leagues with Manning's putrid performance fresh in our minds.

  Giants | Rough night for Eli Manning    Thu Oct 11, 11:57 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 24 of his 43 passes for 281 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. He was also sacked four times.

Footballguys view: Manning feasted on this matchup last year, but was unable to take advantage this year. He might not be starting by the time the teams meet again, but he could still be a decent streamer next week against the Falcons because of the matchup.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 22-of-36 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 5 loss against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Manning finally got the downfield passing game going against the Panthers, but it wasn't enough to win because of a huge last second field goal. He'll have a streamable matchup on Thursday against Philadelphia.

  Giants | Eli Manning plays well in Week 3    Sun Sep 23, 05:17 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 25-for-29 for 297 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Manning had his best game of the year by far as the Ereck Flowers-less offensive line did a great job (except against JJ Watt) and Manning was able to distribute the ball to his talented targets, even without Evan Engram for most of the afternoon. He'll be worth a streaming look against the Saints next week.

  Giants | NYG unlikely to keep four quarterbacks    Sun Sep 2, 11:17 AM

The New York Giants currently have four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster but are not expected to enter Week 1 with more than three players at that position, according to a source. QBs Davis Webb, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are in competition to back up Eli Manning but Tom Rock of Newsday believes that Webb is the most likely candidate to be traded or released because he was brought in by a previous regime.

  Giants | Eli Manning locked in    Sun Mar 18, 09:47 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning earned a $5 million roster bonus Sunday, March 18, according to a source.

Footballguys view: New Giants coach Pat Shurmur believes Manning has a few years left as a quality starter. That may be the case, but the team has to find a backup plan and a plan for the future. The Giants have the no2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, and they should be considering a quarterback with that selection.

  Giants | HC says Eli Manning has 'years' left    Thu Mar 1, 01:39 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has 'years' left as a starting quarterback in the NFL, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Footballguys view: By 'years' we assume he was referring to how many more seasons he has left on his contract. Otherwise we're a bit worried about Pat Shurmur's sanity. Manning's play has gone downhill the last few years, and while you can place that at the feet of the putrid offensive line to some extent, some of it was on Manning. The Giants are sitting at the second overall pick and the common sentiment in the media is that they will grab a quarterback. But they could be telling us the truth -- that in their opinion, Eli has plenty of tread left -- and there are rumors they love Davis Webb. The Giants are a mystery at No. 2 and they answer to that mystery could hold the key to the first round.

  Giants | Eli Manning confident he will start in 2018    Sat Feb 3, 12:03 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has reportedly been assured from new head coach Pat Shurmur that he will be the starting quarterback in 2018.

Footballguys view: To open the season, surely, but maybe not to close the season. The Giants should be able to find a quarterback worthy of the #2 pick in this strong class, and they shouldn't expect to be picking this high in the draft again any time soon.

  Giants | Eli Manning fine with drafting of QB    Fri Feb 2, 02:19 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he would not have a problem with the Giants if they decide to select a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Manning took over for Kurt Warner when the Giants had a winning record. He showed perspective in interviews that reflected well on his team mentality last year. In the meantime, the Giants pass offense will be more viable with him than a rookie, and the Giants could always pass on quarterback at #2.

  Giants | Eli Manning sticking around?    Fri Jan 26, 11:40 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning 'has years left,' according to head coach Pat Shurmur, who says he's excited to work with him.

Footballguys view: Manning was thought to be on the way out after being benched, but it sounds like the Giants are going to stick with him, which would deprive the Jaguars of an option to pivot to if they are ready to move on from Blake Bortles. Manning would only be a matchup streamer as a starter this year, but it would be better for Odell Beckham and company in fantasy leagues if he is the starter instead of a rookie. This could also lower the chances that Case Keenum rejoins Shurmur if the Vikings don't choose to lock him up before free agency opens.

  Giants | GM wants Eli Manning to return    Sun Jan 21, 01:23 PM

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman reaffirmed his desire for QB Eli Manning to return to the team next season during a meeting with him earlier this month, according to sources. Gettleman also told Manning that the team will continue to scout the quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft and compare them to QB Davis Webb.

Footballguys view: The Giants have the #2 pick in a class that has as many as four or even five first-round graded quarterbacks. Manning could return, but he should be a bridge to the team's first-round pick.

  Giants | Week 17 game recap for Giants    Sun Dec 31, 04:58 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed just 10-of-28 pass attempts for 132 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins. RB Orleans Darkwa rolled up a career-high 154 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, while RB Wayne Gallman added 89 yards on 15 carries. TE Rhett Ellison posted five grabs for 63 yards, while WR Hunter Sharp stepped in with three catches, 29 yards and a touchdown to lead the wide receivers. WR Travis Rudolph also had 29 yards on his lone reception.

Footballguys view: The Giants running game pulled the offense to victory in a consolation win capping one of the most disappointing seasons for the team in a long time. There's still a chance Manning will be back to quarterback the team next year.

  Giants | Eli Manning expected back    Fri Dec 29, 08:42 PM

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said he is moving forward as if QB Eli Manning will be the starting quarterback next season but that does not rule out the possibility of the Giants selecting a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: With a $5 million bonus due in March and over $12 million in dead money, it seems like Manning may in fact stay with the Giants. He's got the support of the front office and with an upgrade at offensive line and running back, Manning could put together a better season than he did this year.

  Giants | Eli Manning to start finale    Mon Dec 25, 10:34 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning will start the Week 17 season finale, according to interim coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Footballguys view: Spagnuolo confirmed Manning will start, but he also indicated they could see what others can do. That would be a hint that rookie Davis Webb could get some playing time. A third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, Webb has all the tools of a pro passer but he was robotic in a college career that saw him play for two schools (Texas Tech, Cal).

  Giants | Eli Manning named Week 14 starter    Mon Dec 4, 01:05 PM

Updating an earlier report, New York Giants Eli Manning has been reinstalled as the starting quarterback for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: With Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese getting fired, the message was clear that benching Manning for Week 13 was a mistake. The team came under a lot of fire nationally after McAdoo's power move and now ownership has righted the ship. That being said, there's no telling whether or not Manning will stay with the Giants in 2018 and beyond. He's currently under contract through the 2019 season.

  Giants | Eli Manning could resume starting    Mon Dec 4, 11:58 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning could return as starter in Week 14 after head coach Ben McAdoo was fired Monday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Manning's benching seemed to be a power move by McAdoo that didn't sit well with many around the league and likely many in the locker room. It makes sense to go back to Manning in Week 14 against the Cowboys. If starting, Manning is an option for fantasy owners in 2-QB leagues or QB-flex formats.

  Giants | Geno Smith named starting quarterback    Tue Nov 28, 03:34 PM

New York Giants QB Geno Smith will start in place of QB Eli Manning in Week 13. It is the first time in 13 years that Manning will not be starting a game for the Giants.

Footballguys view: Head coach Ben McAdoo said the Giants will take a look at both Smith and QB Davis Webb. We don't think they'll see much different from Smith, a castoff from the Jets. Webb was their third-round pick (Cal) in the 2017 NFL draft, and he looks like a prototypical quarterback. However, Webb plays like a robot and struggles under the slightest bit of pressure. We expect the Giants to select a potential franchise quarterback in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Giants | Eli Manning may be benched eventually    Mon Nov 6, 05:52 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is the Giants' starting quarterback, for now, but head coach Ben McAdoo didn't rule out the possibility of giving QB Geno Smith or QB Davis Webb a chance at some point this season. Smith came in for a couple snaps in New York's Week 9 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Manning could be on his way out at some point this year. The Giants selected Webb in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft with an idea that he could be a developmental prospect. Webb is a 'toolsy' QB with size (6'5" 230 pounds) and arm strength, but he played in a Cal offense that didn't ask him to throw downfield much (65 percent of his completions less than 10 yards from the line of scrimmage). He's drawn comparisons to Brock Osweiler (Broncos) and Nick Foles (Eagles) by some in the scouting community.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 20-for-36 for 220 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.
