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)
