Manning was disappointing in just about every way last year, including a season that put him among the bottom dwellers in 20+ and 25+ point games at quarterback, but this year he gained Brandon Marshall and first-round tight end Evan Engram. The risk that he remains a boring weekly option is easy to account for in best ball leagues when you draft another quarterback around the same part of your draft with a higher weekly floor like Philip Rivers or Dak Prescott.

Summary

Entering his 14th season, Eli Manning is oddly in "prove it" mode. When head coach Ben McAdoo took over the Giants offense three years ago, it looked an ideal fit for Manning's strong-armed tendencies. Manning produced his career-best season in 2015 (4,436 yards, 35 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 7.2 yards per attempt) and the table was set for near-elite fantasy production in 2016 thanks to the addition of rookie Sterling Shepard. Unfortunately, things didn't work out as planned. McAdoo's ascent to head coach didn't help matters, and Manning regressed (4,027 yards, 26 touchdowns, 6.7 yards per attempt) as the Giants offense fell from 6th to 26th. This season, there are no excuses. Manning still has Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, but adds veteran Brandon Marshall and rookie first rounder Evan Engram. The Giants would do well to improve the offensive line and running games, but neither will excuse a repeat of last season. Fantasy owners should consider Manning a high upside QB2 on draft day.
