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. (August 16)

Giants | Eli Manning denies asking price (Wed Aug 19, 01:25 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning has denied reports that have stated that he is looking to become the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL with his next contract. 'The reports are all wrong,' Manning said. 'That's never been said, it's never come out of my mouth, I've never said it to my agent, I don't know where people are getting their information.' The two sides have had contract extension talks but appear willing to wait until after the season to work on a deal.

Giants | Eli Manning's desired contract details (Tue Aug 18, 08:18 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning is looking to be paid at least as much as QBs Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger, and he's not necessarily looking to be the highest paid player in football.

Our View: Earlier this week, the Chargers agreed to terms with QB Philip Rivers on a four-year, $83.25 million extension through 2019, and we think Manning should get something similar.

Giants | Eli Manning not close to deal (Tue Aug 18, 01:45 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the team have a 'significant gap' in their negotiations for a long-term contract extension. The gap is unlikely to close soon, either, as Manning seeks to become the highest-paid quarterback in the league. Manning would make $25 million next year if the franchise tag is placed on him.
