Giants | Eli Manning talks about players missing OTAs

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said the workouts that took place early in the offseason at Duke University were not meant to be a substitution for work that can be done during OTAs, in reference to WRs Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz missing the team workouts. "You got some work, but I was really hoping that would be a little starter course to the spring and not a substitute for what we're doing on the field right now," Manning said Thursday, following the team's OTA. "This is the stuff where you're getting to go against cornerbacks. You get to work your technique. You get to practice those things we're gonna do in the season."

Fantasy Tip: While it is not ideal that Cruz and Nicks are missing OTAs, it should not take long for them to regain their chemistry with Manning once they do return to practice.
