New York Giants QB Eli Manning has struggled to pick up the team's new West Coast offense in four preseason games and the regular season opener, but offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo continues to believe that Manning is the right guy for the job. "He is the perfect fit for this offense," McAdoo said. "He is very smart. I thought that if there was anything encouraging about what happened in the game (the 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions), it was the comfort level with his feet and the progress that he is making fundamentally." McAdoo said that progress is coming, but "we aren't going to apologize" if it takes weeks or longer. McAdoo also said that he wants to get the ball to WRs Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle more often.
Fantasy Tip: The G-Men are facing solid cornerbacks from the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, so more struggles could be in store. Until Manning gains your trust, it'd be wise to avoid him in FantasyScore.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning struggled to grasp the team's new West Coast offense in the preseason, and it carried over into Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Arizona Cardinals head coach and offensive guru Bruce Arians thinks it could take as long as half a season to reprogram a veteran quarterback in a new offense. "I try to never judge a quarterback in a new offense until Week 8," Arians said. He said QB Carson Palmer didn't understand their new vertical attack last year until Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: The injury-depleted Cardinals played well against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, and that could continue if Manning and the Giants continue to struggle on offense. It'd be wise to avoid Manning and his $5,200 salary at FantasyScore.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (knee) had a sleeve on his left knee Monday, Sept. 1.

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 14:44:35 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said the team's new offense has room for improvement, but he is not concerned. "I think we're still trying to get it exactly the way we want it," Manning said Friday. "It's a work in progress. There's definitely room for improvement, and that will be a season-long situation, which I think is normal. That's not a bad thing. I think we have to know what we do well and where we need to make our improvements and be harsh on ourselves to make those improvements."
Fantasy Tip: While the passing game has struggled through out the preseason, the Giants have had success running the ball. The team may lean on the running game in the early part of the season while the passing game catches up.
Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:21:35 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning and the rest of the starters will play around 15 to 18 snaps in the team's preseason finale against the New England Patriots Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. The Giants offense has struggled in the preseason, and Manning threw his first touchdown pass last week.
Fantasy Tip: The G-Men will not head into Week 1 firing on all cylinders on offense, and it might take a good portion of the early season for them to get on the same page. That doesn't speak well for Manning and the rest of his offensive weapons.
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:19:25 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and Mario Manningham have not made many big plays this preseason. Cruz initially caught a long play-action pass Saturday, Aug. 16, but dropped it. Randle has one catch for 12 yards in three games. Jernigan has not carried over his momentum from late last season, per head coach Tom Coughlin, and also dropped a throw from Eli Manning Saturday. Corey Washington has three touchdowns but received fewer first-string practice reps than Manningham in first-string practice reps Monday, Aug. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Add in Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury, and there's little reason to believe in this offense right now. At least this may make them cheaper fantasy options.
Sun, 10 Aug 2014 10:46:44 -0700
In two preseason appearances spanning two quarters, New York Giants QB Eli Manning has yet to throw a pass that has traveled more than 10 yards in the air - most likely the result of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo lacking confidence in his offensive line. He went 0-for-2 and was sacked once in four offensive series against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 9.
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 13:06:54 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning will play in the team's first preseason game Sunday, Aug. 3, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:35:29 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he hopes to receive some playing time in the Hall of Fame but will let the coaches determine his status for the game.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:43:36 -0700
The New York Giants are looking for QB Eli Manning to complete at least 70 percent of his passes this upcoming season, according to quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf. "He's well aware of who's done it in the past and what the system can get you in terms of completion," Langsdorf said. "So we're trying to focus on that and really trying to do a good job of taking care of the ball and hitting open receivers."
Fantasy Tip: Manning is coming off a difficult 2013 season and has been working on learning the new offense this offseason. Owners should consider Manning as a No. 2 quarterback at this point, because he may have some issues with the offense early on and there are questions with the team's running backs and offensive line.
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:13:07 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) has shown no ill effects during camp from ankle surgery that sidelined him for earlier offseason activities.
Fantasy Tip: Although it's good news that Manning is healthy, it doesn't change the fact that he will be playing behind a questionable offensive line and has led the NFL in interceptions three times. Draft him as a QB2.
Mon, 21 Jul 2014 20:15:52 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning didn't run with the team at training camp Monday, July 21, and threw on the side with coaches instead. Manning said that not running had nothing to do with his offseason ankle surgery.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Manning just didn't want to run, and when you are a star QB, you donít have to. Consider him a QB2 in most fantasy formats heading into the season.
Sun, 20 Jul 2014 07:29:58 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning has not had any contract extension talks with the team, according to owner John Mara. "We haven't even really discussed that yet," Mara said. "We'll discuss that at the appropriate time. Obviously it's our hope that he finish his career as a Giant."
Sun, 13 Jul 2014 20:37:30 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he has been working hard on learning offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system this offseason. "It's reenergized me," Manning said. "I'm trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don't have 10 years. I have a few months."

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 08:11:07 -0700

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 13:03:31 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning is in line to return to playing at a championship level in a more up-tempo, West Coast offense, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Coughlin thinks the process of Manning and the rest of the players learning a new process and system will make them more successful and productive.
Fantasy Tip: Manning had one of his worst statistical seasons in 2013 behind a weak offensive line. Behind Victor Cruz in the passing game, the G-Men have an intriguing cast of youngsters with plenty of upside. We think the new offense should help, too, but not enough to push Manning out of QB2 territory.
Wed, 11 Jun 2014 14:39:51 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he is rejuvenated by the process of learning a new offense. "It is tough, it's not easy, but it has definitely re-energized me and brought an urgency to this time of year," Manning said.
Tue, 10 Jun 2014 10:53:20 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning, who has taken repetitions in organized team activities, admitted that there is a bit of a learning curve this offseason when it comes to learning new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense. "Only seven practices, so no, we haven't gotten everything down. I'm not 100 percent on everything going on," Manning said. "There are still some learning curves and things I gotta digest and think through. But the more reps you get at, the more looks you get, the better you're getting."
Fantasy Tip: Manning had his worst statistical season in 2013, as he tried to carry the team too much and wound up making bad decisions the majority of the time. Coming off offseason surgery and learning a new offense isn't ideal, either, although it'll be hard for him not to improve on his numbers in 2014. Regardless, Manning is no more than a midrange QB2 with upside in some weeks based off of matchups.
Mon, 09 Jun 2014 13:38:44 -0700

Wed, 28 May 2014 18:33:14 -0700
Updating a previous report, New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) was on the field for organized team activities (OTAs) Wednesday, May 28, and he will have a few weeks to hone his timing in new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's up-tempo attack.

Wed, 28 May 2014 12:12:49 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, May 28, and took many of the first-team snaps.

Tue, 13 May 2014 12:34:13 -0700

Thu, 08 May 2014 18:23:28 -0700
The New York Giants selected Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: They decided to go with a complementary weapon for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Eli Manning is still a sound fantasy backup who has a bit more potential if New York can protect him a bit better. Beckham is a better long-term prospect than for 2014, but he's a capable reserve fantasy catcher due to his speed. Maybe Ben McAdoo will use him creatively.
Mon, 05 May 2014 14:22:32 -0700

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:28:16 -0700
Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said in a radio interview this week that it is "ludicrous" to say QB Eli Manning is declining. "There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort," Gilbride said. "I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line. They certainly made a move to do that by bringing in three interior offensive linemen and as soon as they get somebody that's going to be productive for them as an outside receiver. WR Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go to match up, bump and run (and) go win for them."
Tue, 15 Apr 2014 07:22:15 -0700
Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said it's "ludicrous" to think that Giants QB Eli Manning is in decline.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) said he should be able to run again in six weeks after undergoing a "debridement" of his left ankle Thursday, April 10. "I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," Manning said. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle." Manning's timetable should have him ready for the majority of the team's offseason workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Manning should be good to go for Week 1 of the regular season. All offseason workouts with the offense will be important for Manning and the rest of the receivers since they'll be learning a new system under Ben McAdoo. Manning remains more valuable as a QB2.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 11:34:52 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning (ankle) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ankle Thursday, April 10.
