  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.

  Giants | Eli Manning has solid outing    Sun Nov 5, 04:50 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Manning made the most of an offense without his top two receivers and two starting offensive linemen. He faces a very limited 49ers defense next week and might be worth a bye week coverage 2QB/Superflex look in Week 10.

  Giants | Could Davis Webb play this season?    Wed Oct 25, 05:01 PM

New York Giants QB Davis Webb won't be taking over for QB Eli Manning anytime soon, but it could come to that 'at some point' this year, according to general manager Jerry Reese. 'It's not right now because we're going to fight with everything we have with these nine games left and hopefully we can turn our season around,' Reese said. Reese added that, including Manning, everyone on the team needs to play better.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 35 of his 47 pass attempts for 366 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 3 game at Philadelphia.

Footballguys view: Manning and the Giants offense was in dire straits after multiple missed fourth downs, but they recovered behind strong play from Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard in the second half to almost save the game, but the team fell short. Next week, he'll face a Bucs defense that has been bipolar so far this year.

Footballguys view: The one hope here is that the return of Odell Beckham can revitalize the offense because Manning, Brandon Marshall and the running game looked dead on arrival in Week 1.

  Giants | Eli Manning sharp in preseason action    Tue Aug 22, 12:59 AM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 10-of-14 passes for 80 yards in the team's second preseason game Monday, August 21, opposite the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Eli Manning is a high-end QB2 for fantasy but there will be owners out there who get him as a starter and then rotate him based on matchups. You can wait on quarterback if you'd like, and Manning is coming off the board in the 11th round of 12-team drafts. We'd suggest getting Ben Roethlisberger or Jameis Winston a couple of rounds earlier, but if you've filled up with other positions then Manning is an option.

  Giants | Davis Webb stealing reps    Sun Jun 25, 11:27 PM

New York Giants QB Davis Webb made a habit of lining up behind QB Eli Manning during OTAs when Manning ran plays with the first-team offense. 'I've always done that since I was in seventh grade, watching the varsity quarterback at my dad's high school,' Webb said at minicamp. 'Just trying to steal reps as much as I can.'

Footballguys view: Webb was drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft with the idea that he could be groomed as a potential starter in the future. He's got the prototypical build for a quarterback (6'5" 229 pounds) but his decision making and accuracy beyond 10 yards are real big question marks. Dynasty owners should be monitoring his progress.

  Giants | Does Eli Manning have plenty of gas in tank?    Thu Jun 22, 01:48 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has many years to play in the NFL, in the opinion of owner John Mara.

Footballguys view: It would be fascinating to know what GM Jerry Reese and coach Ben McAdoo think about the 'gas gauge' for Manning. Some of the moves they have made this offseason seem more bent on capitalizing on winning now, with an eye beyond Manning. Certainly the addition of rookie QB Davis Webb has given people the impression the Giants are thinking of a few years down the line. Short term, the Giants added WR Brandon Marshall and rookie TE Evan Engram, both weapons which will help Manning immensely. Early drafts seem undecided on Manning's real value, and his ADP is at 108 overall -- the No. 16 quarterback coming off the board.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. skips workout    Sun Apr 9, 09:12 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. did not work out with the other skill position players during a two-day workout hosted by QB Eli Manning last week, and Beckham said he didn't attend because of upcoming oral surgery.

Footballguys view: Not a big deal here. He was outstanding last year, and the addition of Brandon Marshall should take even more attention away from him. ODB is a no-brainer WR1 for fantasy owners.

  Giants | Eli Manning nearing the end?    Tue Feb 21, 03:58 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has two to three quality years left in the eyes of the Giants, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday. Glauber added that New York has already started to point out a decline in Manning's play.

Footballguys view: Like the Steelers (and the Chargers), the Giants need to find their next quarterback so he can be groomed to eventually take over. Manning is signed through 2019 with salaries of $13 million, $10.5 million and $11.5 million, respectively, over the next three years. His contract also includes a no-trade clause and $5 million roster bonuses due on the third day of the 2018 and 2019 league years.

Footballguys view: The rookie played 51 snaps against the Browns on Sunday but didn't receive a single target. He did rush the ball one time for a gain of 22 yards. Going forward, Shepard should be much more involved and he has the capability of posting WR3/flex numbers for fantasy owners.
