2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Eli threw for 4,933 yards last season, just 67 yards short of an astounding 5,000

(+) After winning his second Super Bowl, Manning has proven he belongs with the elite QBs of the league (he's got more hardware than Peyton now)

(+) Victor Cruz is the best WR2 in the league and Hakeem Nicks is a bona fide stud

(+) Martellus Bennett at TE could be huge for Eli, who hasn't had a solid tight end since early in Jeremy Shockey's career

(+) Eli hasn't missed a game since his rookie season so he's as durable as they come

(+) With the addition of David Wilson, the Giants running game should be solid/dynamic enough to keep defenses honest and take the pressure off of Manning

(+) Eli can rock a mean manningface.com

(–) The Super Bowl target is on Eli's back now

(–) His first name is Elisha (as is his father’s, though he decided to go by his middle name (Archie) instead)

(–) Eli throws a lot of interceptions, so beware in leagues that take points away for this

(–) If he happens to get rattled early in a game, he seems to have a tough time pushing through it

(–) Inconsistency – Eli has a tendency to disappear for weeks at a time

2009 Review

Peyton's little brother isn't so little anymore. In 2009, the lesser of two Mannings came out of his shell to put up his best statistical year to date.  The players around him may not have been as good as in years past (I wonder what jail they are in now), but that didn’t stop Eli from putting up borderline fantasy starter numbers.  His pattern of starting seasons on fire stayed true to form, but Eli was then slowed for a handful of games by a plantar fasciitis injury that would linger for the rest of the year.  Regardless of the injury, Manning came out of the team’s bye week with obvious purpose and closed out the year with some nice fantasy numbers.  Still, he was inconsistent after the fourth week of the season (as has become his trademark), but was definitely able to be plugged in as a starting fantasy QB if you found the right games to do so.

~ Set career bests in completions (317), completion percentage (62.3%), yards (4,021), passing TDs (27), yards/attempt (7.9), yards/game (251.3), and QB Rating (93.1)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Considering his entire receiving corps last year was made up of a bunch of guys no more than 25 years of age, Eli should at least be able to duplicate his numbers of 2009 this upcoming season.  It probably won’t be by much if it happens, as its possible some serious over-achieving was going on (Ahem, hello Steve Smith), but he should come close enough to put him on the edge of starting fantasy QB status.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that Eli is a Manning, and though he will never be as good as his older brother, the potential to be better than what he has been so far is always there, so feel free to take a chance on him once the other top guys are off the board.

~ An off-season of rest and rehab should do his foot a whole bunch of good heading into the season

~ Another full off-season of work with his young receiving corps will get them more in sync than they were in 2009

~ With Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw coming back healthy, opposing defenses will have to pay more attention to the run

~ He's got a new stadium that will host the Super Bowl in 2014, so expect Eli to want to work towards that

Before Eli signed his massive seven-year, $106.9 million contract in August of 2009, his agents were actually pushing for an unreal $20 million per season.  He came close, signing for just over $15 million per, which says a lot for his agent considering Eli isn’t an elite QB.  The deal also contained $35 million guaranteed, including a $13 million signing bonus and all but $1 million of Manning's 2009-2011 base salaries, along with another $500,000 available in each season from 2010-2015 via annual workout bonuses.  The rest breaks down as so:

2010 - $6.5 million (+ $12.5 million option bonus)

2011 - $8.5 million

2012 - $10.75 million

2013 - $13 million

2014 - $15.15 million

2015 - $17 million

Injury Report


Eli has not missed a game in his career.

I am Fading Sterling Shepard in Week 4

Pyro's take: The Giants face the league's toughest D in the Vikings.

Fantasy Goo: Last year, the bad-ass Broncos averaged 7.3 FF Points on a per game basis. Well through 3 weeks, granted a small sample size, the Vikings are averaging double what the Broncos did last year. That is correct, the Vikings are putting up 14.7 FF Points per game. Jordy Nelson is so far the only WR to score a TD against them. Besides Jordy, they have only allowed 1 other WR to even put up a double-digit day in PPR formats. They are allowing approximately 40 yards to opposing WR2s with none of them being able to score. Heck, Eli might not even have enough time in the pocket,. With 15 sacks, the Vikings lead the league.

Vikings own Manning

Pyro's take: In seven career starts against the Vikings, the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback has thrown five touchdown passes and 14 interceptions, his worst ratio against any NFL team he’s played more than three times. The Giants are 2-5 in the seven games Manning has started against Minnesota.

Fantasy Goo: Eli only has one touchdown pass in this last two games, and he is going to have a hard time improving on those numbers this week. The Vikings are only giving up 211 passing yards per game. The have only given up three passing touchdowns in their first three games, and have five interceptions, 15 sacks, four fumble recoveries, and three defensive touchdowns. Avoid Eli this week.

Odell has a touchdown or 100 yards in 21 of his 30 career games. In the other 9 games he averages 5 catches for 61 yards on 8.5 targets.Sterling Shepard has started off his career three for three with a 100 yards or a score.

Giants TE Race is a Close One in Camp


Pyro's take: It appears both Larry Donnell and Will Tye have been impressing at camp. Tye enters his second year and all indications suggest a big year. He took over for Donnell last season when LD fractured his neck in Week 9.

Fantasy goo: I really like Tye and have been gravitating towards him in many MFL 10s. But to be honest, this news could be bad for both if they end up splitting time. As always, keep an eye on the preseason for indications of the split between these two. Incidentally, Eli has the 2nd most red zone attempts in the last two seasons and lack of a real RZ back could mean good things for big target end zone pass catchers.

Showed remarkable consistency for a second-year player

Giants.com's John Schmeelk said TE Will Tye "caught everything" during the offseason program.

Pyro's take: Giants.com's John Schmeelk said TE Will Tye "caught everything" during the offseason program. Schmeelk added Tye "showed remarkable consistency for a second-year player."

Fantasy Goo: Tye rose up in value last season after Larry Donnell went out for the year with a neck injury. Tye "Baby Gates", who stands 6'2" and 262 pounds, caught 42 passes for 464 yards in 2015 along with a long of 45 yards. Tye hauled in 32 receptions for 368 yards and three touchdowns over the final seven games. Wilhelm Tye had 6 games with 4 or more receptions and 6 games with 40 or more yards in 2015. On draft day you could do much worse than having Will Tye as your starting fantasy tight end. If you would like to load up elsewhere such as a second quarterback or beef up your wide receiver or running back position you can still save your ass very late in your draft and possibly the final round of your draft by taking Will Tye. The fools in your league will laugh at you because Will Tye is not a sexy pick. Eli should have a super sweet season with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and yes, Will freaking Tye! (Currently my #16 TE)

Eli Believes He Is Manning The Helm Of A Giants Playoff Team

Eli Manning told the New York Post

Pyro's take: Eli Manning told the New York Post that he believes that the New York Giants are "definitely" a playoff team in 2016. "We added some great players in the offseason. We were aggressive in free agency, but still have a lot of our core guys, especially on offense, back and I think we made some good moves on defense. We’re getting some guys back healthy," Manning said. "It’s just a matter of, hey, the talent is there, can we put it together, can we find a way to win the games and play our best football when we need to?” The Giants have not appeared in the postseason since 2011.

Fantasy Goo: Eli Manning is entering his 13th NFL season in 2016 and is poised to have his best statistical year as a pro. The Giants added a receiving threat to play opposite Odell Beckham through the draft by selecting Sterling Shepard. They also have Victor Cruz returning despite his usual durability issues and an up and coming tight end in Will Tye. Consider Manning a low-end QB1 with the upside to be able to finish the campaign ranked in the top five in total fantasy points scored among quarterbacks.

He has flashed terrific speed and great hands

There has been nothing but raves for the second-round receiver out of Oklahoma, Sterling Shepard, who has drawn comparisons to both a healthy Victor Cruz and to Odell Beckham.

Pyro's take: There has been nothing but raves for the second-round receiver out of Oklahoma, Sterling Shepard, who has drawn comparisons to both a healthy Victor Cruz and to Odell Beckham. He has flashed terrific speed and great hands throughout the Giants' spring drills and appears to be a lock to land in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Goo: Eli Manning can surely use a compliment to Odell Beckham Jr. and New York may have drafted that player this year in Sterling Shepard. Sterling was a 2nd round selection who is 5’10 with a 41 inch vertical leap. The G-Men refuse to cut bait on Victor Cruz but, a solid season by Shepard could change that. Odell of course will draw plenty of attention which makes Sterling a nice sleeper to keep in mind as this year’s fantasy drafts creep closer.

Giants have requested permission to interview Bears OC Adam Gase for their head-coaching vacancy.

Manning had x-rays


Pyro's take: Giants quarterback Eli Manning would not say why or what he received X-rays on after Sunday's loss to the Jets, but he did want everyone to know that he was fine and would not miss a start. Manning never does.

On Monday, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin provided some context to the situation, noting that Manning received X-rays on his ankle. Manning finished the game without issue and did not appear to be walking with a significant limp following the game.

Manning attempted a rare, out-of-pocket scramble late in Sunday's game, which raised some alarms given the hard hit he took. But as the Giants' iron man, Manning almost always makes it to practice the next day. It sounds like this will remain the case as the Giants try and sort themselves out.

Expect quick strikes from Eli Manning this week


Pyro's take: The Giants could be without center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh for this game, which would drastically affect quarterback Eli Manning's protection and could encourage quick-hitting, short-range passes to Vereen. Harris was new to the lineup in Week 3, having just replaced the beleaguered Preston Parker. And Manning completed six passes for 59 yards that day to tight ends Larry Donnell and Daniel Fells, neither of whom will play Sunday in Washington. So, I'd expect Vereen and Harris to both factor in this week as big Eli targets if he's without 40 percent of his starting offensive line. -- Dan Graziano

Manning feels the need to win

If an 0-2 record gives a team a 15% chance of making the playoffs (supposedly) what does it mean for an 0-3 team? The New York Giants face the same situation they did last season, and don't want it to get to that point again.

Manning will need to rely on Victor Cruz, now that Jerrel Jernigan is out for the season and Odell Beckham will be out for Sunday's game.

Pyro's take: Eli Manning needs to cut down the interceptions and increase the touchdowns for the Giants to win. Can he do it? Not without any of his receivers. Larry Donnell and Cruz will be targeted a lot in this game. Ruben Randle will need to come up big as well.

Eli learning a new offense

With the first preseason game one week away for the Giants, coach Tom Coughlin was asked about the progress of the new offense, saying it’s “two steps forward and one back.” Eli Manning took one of those steps forward today at training camp, opening up with a sharp drive at practice. Later on in 1-on-1 and 7-on-7 drills, Manning was also on point, completing strong passes to his wide receivers. “The more we can stay together, keep people healthy, and keep working; small gains, as I say,” Coughlin said. “It’ll come. There were parts of this drill today that were very good.”

Pyro's take: It's a good thing that Eli won't be running the same offense that led to pathetic fantasy numbers last season. Eli is looking to regain the form he had in 2011, and with the weapons around him he could come close. With the team undertaking a new offense, it is understandable if it takes a little time for the offense to really click, but the focus is there from Eli and the offense to bring them back to their glory days. He is going to be a great fantasy value as a backup this season.

Little Bro Ready to Go

Eli Manning has stated that his ankle is fine two months after ankle surgery. "Yeah, 100 percent, yeah," Manning said when asked if he could play a game right now. "The ankle, I don't think about it, don't notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they’re not even worried about it. So, it hasn't been an issue. No question I could play tomorrow."

The next step is to get acclimated to new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system, it may take some time, as he has been limited in OTA's.

Pyro's take: Eli loves to throw interceptions, and his 27 he threw last year, places him 19th in NFL history. So, seeing that he needs to get acclimated to a new offensive coordinator and a new scheme, could lead to some interesting play from the veteran quarterback.

In considering Eli Manning's over all numbers he has throw for 171 interceptions in 153 games played, and has only thrown over 30 touchdowns once in his career. Not to mention he does not add anything of value in the running game.

He should be a bottom feeder on your fantasy tier sheet, or non-existent if your league accounts for interceptions.

Eli's troubles continue

The explosive lawsuit filed by a sports memorabilia dealer against Eli Manning and the Giants this week alleges that team employees lied to federal agents investigating fake game-used jerseys, but the dealer’s lawyer doubts that prosecutors will pursue perjury or obstruction of justice charges against Big Blue employees.

Attorney Brian C. Brook, who represents New Jersey dealer Eric Inselberg in the suit that claims quarterback Eli Manning and team officials sold bogus “game-worn” gear to unsuspecting fans, said it is exceptionally rare for prosecutors to seek perjury charges against their own witnesses – even if their false testimony derails a criminal case.

“Obviously, we would like to see justice done, whether through the civil suit or through the criminal justice system – or both,” said Brook, of Clinton, Brook & Peed. “As a criminal defense attorney, I’d like to see the people who lied to the grand jury face charges.”

Brook said Justice Department officials have not contacted him about possible perjury or obstruction charges.

Manning and the Giants said earlier this week that the lawsuit has no merit, and a club spokesman said the team will battle allegations that team employees lied to investigators “as vigorously as well against all other allegations.”

Pyro's take: If it wasn't bad enough that Eli Manning just suffered through his worst season of his NFL career, now he has this potential black eye. This will most likely be cleared up, but it fits the way things have been going for Eli lately.

Since his breakout in 2011 when he threw for 4,933 yards Manning only has thrown for 7,766 with 44 touchdowns and 42 interceptions. Eli and the Giants have not been able to produce a balanced attack, and the amount of mental mistakes they have been making will surely have Eli drafted as a backup next season. He still will have value as a reserve, especially if he can get Victor Cruz and Ruben Randle going.

Despite reports, Eli looks good to go

Despite the reports that he has a stress reaction in his foot that will hamper his play the rest of the year, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been practicing in full all week and says his performance won't be hindered at all because of the injury.

Pyro's take: The fact that he is going through all the normal drills in practice leads us to believe that Eli will be just fine... until he's not. One wrong move could still end his season. However, he shouldn't be too bad of a play for your fantasy football team this weekend.

Eli has a new foot injury

Giants quarterback Eli Manning recently said that his plantar fasciitis is feeling just fine and that it is behind him at this point in the season, but now he is dealing with another injury, a stress reaction in the same foot, due to overcompensating for his previous injury.

Pyro's take: The stress reaction shouldn't keep Manning from playing unless it turns into a stress fracture. In the meantime, the team has been resting him and putting him through rehab to combat this new injury. We'll see in the coming weeks, we'll how Eli's fantasy football stats are affected by all this.

Eli Manning "over and done with" foot injury

When asked about his early-season bout with plantar fasciitis, Giants quarterback Eli Manning had this to say:
"That injury I think is kind of over and done with," Manning said. "A week off and not practicing and not putting any pressure on the body or the arm definitely helps, refreshes the whole body."

Pyro's take: Eli has always been a first-quarter of the year type of quarterback, and that trend hasn't changed this season. He's no better than a QB2 going forward on your fantasy football team, and shouldn't be started against his tougher match-ups.

Eli says foot is fine, not an excuse

According to Giants quarterback Eli Manning (plantar fasciitis), his recent struggles have nothing to do with his injured right foot. "That's not an excuse I can fall on," Manning said. "It's not bothering me at all."

Pyro's take: We were telling anyone in the fantasy football world who would listen to sell high on this guy, as his stats over his career show that injury or no injury, he falls off the mountain every single year after the first four games of the season. Hopefully some of you listened...

Eli listed as probable on injury report

Giants quarterback Eli Manning (plantar fasciitis) is being listed as probable on the team's injury report and is expected to play on Sunday.

Eli practices in full Thursday

Giants quarterback Eli Manning (plantar fasciitis) was a full participant in practice on Thursday.

Pyro's take: Looking for some payback for last week and going up against one of the weaker pass defenses in the league makes Eli a must-start for your fantasy football team this weekend.
