Summary

Eli Manning's career has been a roller coaster. The 2-time Super Bowl champion was on a downward trajectory entering the 2014 season. In 2013 he led the NFL with 27 interceptions, and many wondered if Manning's best years were behind him. Thanks to new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo and the emergence of Odell Beckham Jr., Manning erased those questions and arguably delivered his best season. Manning completed a career-best 63.1% of his passes, threw for 4,410 yards, 30 touchdowns and most importantly cut his interceptions in half (14). Entering his 12th season, Manning could be in-line for a career year, with 5,000-yards within the realm of possibility. Lest you think that hyperbole, remember that Odell Beckham only played 11 games last year, and missed the entirety of the preseason. Generally teams improve in the second year of a new system, and Victor Cruz is on track for a Week One return. Add to that RB Shane Vereen -- an excellent receiver out of the backfield -- and Manning has his best supporting cast in years, if not his career. Manning has a top 10 fantasy floor with top 5 upside, in spite of costing a bit less. (May 16)

Giants | Big contract coming for Eli Manning? (Sat Jun 27, 10:17 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning will likely work out a new deal with the team, according to his agent Tom Condon, but it won't come at a discount. 'The quarterbacks always get done,' Condon said. 'And the Giants are not a skittish team. So it's not one of those things where they get nervous or they jump around or anything like that. You know you're going to go in and it's going to get done. I'm sure at the appropriate time it'll happen.'

Our View: We just can't see Manning playing with another team. Of course, we felt the same way about his brother Peyton and look what happened. We have a feeling the two sides find a way to get a deal done.

Giants | Eli Manning looks comfortable (Wed Jun 24, 12:15 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning looked more comfortable with the offense this offseason than he did at any point last offseason.

Our View: That makes a lot of sense. This is the second year of working in the Ben McAdoo system, so we're certain Manning is much more comfortable than he was last season. In 2014, Manning finished as the 8th-best fantasy football quarterback. This year, Manning could finish again as a top-10 passer--perhaps even top-5 although that's only something he's done once (2005) in his career.
