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 | Eli Manning's contract talks stalled? (Fri Jul 24, 09:45 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the team have not had meaningful, substantive contract talks in some time.

Our View: We're not overly concerned here. Manning should sign an extension with the Giants similar to what Ben Roethlisberger received from the Steelers earlier this year (four years, $87.4 million).

Giants | Eli Manning's agent growing impatient? (Thu Jul 23, 09:38 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning's agent, Tom Condon, seems to be upset with the lack of progress regarding Manning's contract extension. When asked when the fans could expect a new deal for Manning, Condon said, 'We'd like to know that as well.'

Our View: He'll be alright. The Giants are likely to keep Manning around for the rest of his career. The deal Ben Roethlisberger got from the Steelers earlier this year may prove to be a marker for Condon and Manning. He received a four-year extension worth $87.4 million, and Manning's next contract could be quite similar.

Giants | Eli Manning extension sought after (Tue Jul 21, 09:01 AM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning could have an extension signed by the team before or early in training camp. Manning is set to make $17 million and count $19.25 million against the cap this season.

Our View: Manning is entering the final year of his contract, so the two sides will work to come together on an extension to keep him around with the Giants. Earlier this year, Ben Roethlisberger signed a five-year $99 million extension with the Steelers, and we could see Manning get something in that range. At age 34, Manning could post carer-best numbers in year two working under offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
