Summary

Ben McAdoo was hired to lift the Giants offense into the new Millennium and after two seasons it's clear he was the man for the job. As a result of his success, he was elevated to Head Coach in place of the "retired" Tom Coughlin. What that means for fantasy owners is that Eli Manning is now solidly in the discussion as a must start fantasy asset. It's unusual to see a player set career bests in their 12th season, but Manning did exactly that with 387 receptions, 618 completions, 4,436 yards, 35 touchdowns, 93.6 passer rating and a +21 TD/INT differential. With the addition of promising rookie Sterling Shepard and the (possible) healthy return of Victor Cruz, the Giants are not going to retrench from their newfound penchant for throwing the ball. As if that weren't enough to excite you about Manning as a fantasy starter, let's remember he's an iron man -- he hasn't missed a game in 11 seasons. (May 21)

Giants | Eli Manning expects more points (Wed Jun 29, 04:35 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he expects to offense to score more points in 2016 and believes they will be able to score at least 28 points per game. Manning believes the addition of WR Sterling Shepard and the return of WR Victor Cruz and TE Larry Donnell will help the passing game.

Our View: Manning could be correct in his prediction. Everyone knows that Beckham is a superstar, but adding the rookie Shepard to the mix could pay huge dividends for the offense. The dynamic rookie from Oklahoma is tough to get a bead on. He can make defenders miss with ease in the open field, and Shepard is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. The added weapons in the passing game should help Manning put up good fantasy numbers in 2016. His current ADP is QB11 (9.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
