Summary

Entering his 14th season, Eli Manning is oddly in "prove it" mode. When head coach Ben McAdoo took over the Giants offense three years ago, it looked an ideal fit for Manning's strong-armed tendencies. Manning produced his career-best season in 2015 (4,436 yards, 35 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 7.2 yards per attempt) and the table was set for near-elite fantasy production in 2016 thanks to the addition of rookie Sterling Shepard. Unfortunately, things didn't work out as planned. McAdoo's ascent to head coach didn't help matters, and Manning regressed (4,027 yards, 26 touchdowns, 6.7 yards per attempt) as the Giants offense fell from 6th to 26th. This season, there are no excuses. Manning still has Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, but adds veteran Brandon Marshall and rookie first rounder Evan Engram. The Giants would do well to improve the offensive line and running games, but neither will excuse a repeat of last season. Fantasy owners should consider Manning a high upside QB2 on draft day.

Giants | Davis Webb stealing reps (Sun Jun 25, 11:27 PM) - New York Giants QB Davis Webb made a habit of lining up behind QB Eli Manning during OTAs when Manning ran plays with the first-team offense. 'I've always done that since I was in seventh grade, watching the varsity quarterback at my dad's high school,' Webb said at minicamp. 'Just trying to steal reps as much as I can.'

Our View: Webb was drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft with the idea that he could be groomed as a potential starter in the future. He's got the prototypical build for a quarterback (6'5" 229 pounds) but his decision making and accuracy beyond 10 yards are real big question marks. Dynasty owners should be monitoring his progress.

Giants | Does Eli Manning have plenty of gas in tank? (Thu Jun 22, 01:48 PM) - New York Giants QB Eli Manning still has many years to play in the NFL, in the opinion of owner John Mara.

Our View: It would be fascinating to know what GM Jerry Reese and coach Ben McAdoo think about the 'gas gauge' for Manning. Some of the moves they have made this offseason seem more bent on capitalizing on winning now, with an eye beyond Manning. Certainly the addition of rookie QB Davis Webb has given people the impression the Giants are thinking of a few years down the line. Short term, the Giants added WR Brandon Marshall and rookie TE Evan Engram, both weapons which will help Manning immensely. Early drafts seem undecided on Manning's real value, and his ADP is at 108 overall -- the No. 16 quarterback coming off the board.
