|Week 15 not the time to consider starting Eli Manning |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/10/13) Early in the season, Fantasy owners wrestled with the decision whether or not to start Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Lately, though, the decision has been easy since Manning has continued to struggle.
Well, if for some reason you are still struggling with the decision to play Manning, we will make it easy for you in Week 15 -- keep Manning benched. From a stats standpoint, Week 15 vs. Seattle is the worst-possible matchup for Manning since quarterbacks average just 10.9 Fantasy points per week against the Seahawks, which is the lowest average in the league.
Only two quarterbacks -- Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck -- have surpassed 20 Fantasy points against Seattle, and only Schaub, Luck and Mike Glennon have thrown multiple touchdowns. In fact, seven quarterbacks have thrown multiple interceptions against Seattle and that's bad news for Manning, who is tied for the league lead in interceptions thrown (20).
Watch this be the week Manning has one of his finest performances with the deck stacked against him, but the odds are still higher for him to have a bad performance. Keep Manning out of active Fantasy lineups Week 15.

(12/8/13) Giants quarterback Eli Manning endured another performance to forget as he fell less 41 yards shy of a 300-yard game but threw for two picks in Sunday's loss to the Chargers in Week 14.
Manning hooked with Brandon Myers for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He was intercepted by Donald Butler in the first quarter and by Shareece Wright in the final quarter. He completed 20 of 32 passes for 259 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 37-14 defeat.
Manning has been intercepted 20 times and has five games with at least two interceptions this season. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Seattle. The Seahawks allowed only 175 passing yards to Colin Kaepernick in Week 14.
|Eli Manning has another great matchup, but... |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/5/13) Giants quarterback Eli Manning has what appears to be an excellent matchup in Week 14 against a Chargers defense that has allowed the ninth-most Fantasy points per game (21.2) to opposing quarterbacks. But this is a familiar refrain that has duped many a Fantasy owner this season.
Manning's last six games have been against teams that have allowed 20 or more Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. They've included the defenses that have allowed the most, second-most, sixth-most, eighth-most, 10th-most, and 11th-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks. There are very few schedule combinations that would have yielded a better set of curcumstances. And yet here Manning stands, with just one 20-point game all season (Week 1), and having scored more than 15 Fantasy points just once in that dreamy six-game span of great matchups.
Manning has shown a ton of ability in the past, which is why so many owners have been salivating over these matchups, convinced that this will be the week he breaks out. Instead, Manning has five games this season with single-digit Fantasy point outputs, and a Week 14 matchup that would scream for a start, if this were any other quarterback.
There's bad luck involved here, some poor wide receiver play and injury, and then just a chunk of the unknown. An eternal Manning optimist may feel like the Chargers are a good matchup and this may be the week!, but there's a large enough sample size and enough data to keep him on the bench going forward.
|Eli Manning highly accurate Week 13 |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(12/1/13) Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed a season-best 78.6 percent of his throws in the Week 13 win at Washington. He hit 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
Late in the first half, Manning found tight end Brandon Myers wide open for a 22-yard score off play action. But in the third quarter, Manning was pressured and threw high for receiver Rueben Randle. The ball was tipped and picked off easily by Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather. It was Manning's NFC-leading 18th interception.
Manning has another plus matchup Week 14 at San Diego.
|Guess what? Another good matchup for Eli Manning |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/29/13) Giants quarterback Eli Manning heads into Week 13 at Washington with another good matchup at his disposal. Will he finally take advantage of it for Fantasy owners?
Manning has faced some easy opponents of late based on Fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks -- Philadelphia twice, Minnesota, Green Bay, Dallas and Oakland -- but his best game was 19 points against the Cowboys in Week 12. He only has one game this season with more than 20 points, which was Week 1 at Dallas.
The Redskins come into this matchup having allowed four of their past six opposing quarterbacks to score at least 20 Fantasy points, including Nick Foles and Colin Kaepernick the past two games. We'll see if Manning can make it three in a row.
Manning also has a terrible history against the Redskins. In his past five meetings, Washington has held Manning to an average of 277 passing yards with four total touchdowns and seven interceptions over that span. He should be considered just a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in this matchup.
|Eli Manning should be considered one of the leading bounce-back candidates this year. He struggled in 2012, which was a surprise, but he didn't have a healthy Hakeem Nicks and also was without former No. 3 receiver Mario Manningham, who left as a free agent for San Francisco. Manning's final stats in 2012 were respectable but misleading. He finished with 3,948 yards, 26 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, which gave him 276 Fantasy points in a standard league. But Manning needed 208 passing yards and five touchdowns -- 38 Fantasy points -- in a meaningless Week 17 game against the Eagles to save his production. He was brutal for most of the season (he had four games with five Fantasy points or fewer), and we predict a rebound year is in order. Getting Nicks back at 100 percent will help, and the Giants need to hope Rueben Randle can become a viable third receiver all season. The Giants also replaced the departed Martellus Bennett with Brandon Myers from Oakland. Before last year, Manning had consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards and 30 total touchdowns. It won't take him much to get back to that level, and he actually presents great value since he'll fall to a mid- to late-round pick in most leagues. We love getting Manning as a low-end starter or high-end backup in 2013. (Updated 5/28/13) |
