Summary

Eli Manning enters his 15th NFL season in familiar territory - as the Giants starting quarterback. Had you been on a year-long mission in space, Manning's position atop the depth chart might seem like a foregone conclusion. Why wouldn't the 2-time Super Bowl champion be in the lineup? Yet, most NFL fans know Manning's position looked far from certain a few months ago. After a 2-9 start, head coach Ben McAdoo shocked the world by benching Manning in favor of Geno Smith. That decision was the nail in McAdoo's coffin, and Manning returned to the huddle for the final four games. With a new general manager - Dave Gettleman - and a new coaching staff led by head coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula, Manning's future was yet again in question. However, Gettleman passed on the top quarterback prospects with the 2nd overall pick in favor of Saquon Barkley and effectively promised Manning his starting role for at least the 2018 season. The passing game suffered mightily last year, as the Giants ranked first in attempts but 31st in yards per attempt. Inefficiency abounded as the offensive line struggled and the run game was non-existent. Manning has been an above average quarterback for most of his career, and the hope is a rebuilt offensive line, and more innovative coaching will return the veteran passer to respectability. Manning has been a Top 10 fantasy quarterback six times, and most recently in 2014 and 2015, so it's not impossible the veteran can surprise. (May 20)
