Giants to bring back Curtis Painter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The Giants plan to re-sign quarterback Curtis Painter, reports FOX Sports.

Painter will compete for a roster spot behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib. In 2013, Painter was 8 of 16 passing for 57 yards and two interceptions in mop-up duty.


Giants OC to focus on Eli Manning's fundamentals


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) With Eli Manning coming off a disastrous 27-interception season, new Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said he's going to focus on fundamentals and taking care of the football.

"First and foremost we hang our hat on fundamentals and that’s gonna be the focal point, that’s the first thing we’re gonna address,'' McAdoo told the New York Post. "The second thing is we want to take care of the football. Taking care of the football is one of the biggest factors in winning and losing games. Fundamentals can help you there.

"At the same point and time, everyone on the offensive side of the ball needs to play better and with that said, everyone comes in with a clean slate."


Giants not expected to address Eli Manning's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is scheduled to count $20.4 million against the cap this season, the fourth-highest figure in the league, but the team does not appear interested in giving him an extension that would reduce the hit, reports The Star-Ledger.

The Giants believe they can rebuild even with Manning taking up so much salary space, the report said. Manning, 33, threw 27 interceptions last season and has two years left on his deal.


Eli Manning 'tried to do more than one guy can do'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a career-high 27 interceptions this season and was sacked a career-high 39 times. His former teammate, NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner, said Manning tried to overcompensate for the Giants' offensive weaknesses.

"A lot of things went wrong and, not that he played perfect, but he tried to do more than one guy can do," Warner said, per The Star-Ledger. "You can't do that in this league. In this league, as a quarterback, you make mistakes. And then when all kinds of pressure is on top of you and you're trying to do more than you should, you’re going to make more mistakes."

Warner added that "if the pieces come together around him," Manning could bounce back with a great 2014 season.


Eli Manning still on crutches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2013) While Giants quarterback Eli Manning downplayed his high-ankle sprain, he was still in a walking boot and using crutches Tuesday, reports Fox Sports. Manning suffered the injury Week 17 vs. Washington. He's still expected to be ready for New York's offseason program.

Eli Manning's season ends with ankle injury


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning saw his season come to a premature end Sunday, as he was pulled from the team's final game with an ankle injury. Manning was hurt at the end of the first half, limped to the locker room, and was replaced by Curtis Painter at the start of the second half. 

Manning had completed 11-of-25 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown before being pulled. He also threw an interception. 

Manning finishes the 2013 season with 3,818 passing yards, his lowest output since 2008. His 18 passing touchdowns were his fewest since his rookie year (when Manning only started sveen games). And his 27 interceptions were a career high. 


Eli Manning wrapping up nightmare season


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning hasn't scored 20 Fantasy points in a game since Week 1. He's two games removed from a -4 point performance. He has scored fewer than 10 Fantasy points six times this season. 

Manning's 2013 campaign comes to a close against a Washington team that has allowed 20.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. But the defense is much improved lately, having not allowed 20 Fantasy points to a quarterback since Week 12. And Manning has been miserable even when facing the greatest of matchups. With Victor Cruz out for Week 17, things look even less appealing.

Manning could bounce back in 2014 -- and may prove to be an sly sleeper addition -- but his 2013 has been a disaster. He can be left on the bench in most formats. 


Eli Manning throws for 256 yards in win over Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning was not at his best but still managed to pass for over 250 yards in Sunday's win over Detroit in Week 16.

Manning hooked up with Jerrel Jernigan for a 20-yard strike late in the second quarter. He was picked off by Glover Quin with 23 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, which forced the game to overtime. Manning passed for 69 yards in overtime and led his team to a 10-play drive, which resulted in a game-winning field goal.

Manning completed 23 of 42 passes for 256 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. He was sacked twice -- including once in the end zone for a safety -- and finished with a 71.1 passer rating in a 23-20 overtime win. Manning also set the single-season franchise record with his 26th interception.

The Giants will host the Redskins in Week 17.

Eli Manning hoping to get back on track Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is hoping to bounce back from one of the worst games of his career heading into Week 16 at Detroit.

Manning threw for only 156 yards and was picked off five times against Seattle in Week 15. He leads the league with 25 interceptions this season. Manning will face a Detroit secondary that has permitted 252.9 passing yards, which ranks 23rd in the league this season.

Even with somewhat favorable matchups, Manning has struggled this season. Continue to ignore him in the majority of Fantasy formats heading into Week 16.

Curtis Painter plays well in mop-up duty


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Giants quarterback Curtis Painter got into a game for the second time this season during a 23-0 loss Week 15 vs. Seattle. Painter replaced Eli Manning on the final drive, as Manning was done after throwing his fifth interception.

Painter actually played well on the last drive, completing 4 of 4 passes for 30 yards. He was sacked once.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Eli Manning throws career-high five interceptions


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning had one of the worst games in his career during a 23-0 loss Week 15 vs. Seattle. The veteran quarterback threw a career-high five interceptions and finished with a 31.9 quarterback rating, which was his lowest since a Week 16 game in 2006 against the Saints.

It was bad from the get-go for Manning, who had previously thrown four interceptions four times in his career. Manning went three-and-out on the first drive and was even sacked on the third play of the game. Things started to get ugly for Manning when he threw his first interception toward the end of the first quarter. It was an ill-advised pass to Victor Cruz, who was well covered. Cruz got his hands on the pass, but it went through his hands and into the grasp of Byron Maxwell.

Manning would throw his second interception two drives later in the second quarter. Manning tried to hit Hakeem Nicks, who was in 1-on-1 coverage, but Richard Sherman was underneath Nicks and in perfect position for the interception. Manning's third pick of the first half would come on a Hail Mary right before halftime, which was also intercepted by Sherman.

Manning wasn't done throwing interceptions. He was picked off on the first play of the fourth quarter, as he threw behind Hakeem Nicks on a short crossing route. Manning's last interception came in the end zone late in the fourth quarter. He threw a 13-yard pass intended for Nicks, which was batted away by Richard Sherman and intercepted by Earl Thomas on the deflection.

Manning, who was replaced by Curtis Painter on the final drive, completed 18 of 31 passes for 156 yards. He was sacked three times. The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Week 15 not the time to consider starting Eli Manning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) 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.


Eli Manning has another great matchup, but...


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) 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
(12/1/2013) 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
(11/29/2013) 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 solid against Dallas Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning had a solid game against the Cowboys Week 12.

Manning had to fight through tough wind most of the game, and wound up completing 16 of 30 passes for 174 yards. Due to the poor passing conditions, Manning was held to just 5.8 yards per completion. Manning was able to bring the Giants back late in the game, tossing two touchdowns in the second half. It was the third time this season Manning was held under 200 yards passing. 

Manning will take on Washington Week 13. 


Dream matchup makes Eli Manning realistic option


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) In Week 12 Eli Manning plays a Cowboys defense giving up the most Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, 25.0 per game. He's primed to take advantage.

Manning hit a season-high 71.4 percent of his throws for 279 yards in last week's win over Green Bay. He completed passes to nine different receivers. He got his top weapon going again as Victor Cruz caught eight balls for 110 yards. With the Giants finally running effectively, Manning hasn't thrown multiple interceptions since Week 5.

“We’re starting to play the way we expect to play,” he told the New York Post.

Counting the opener at Dallas, when Manning threw for 450 yards and four touchdowns with three picks, he's tossed 36 touchdowns against 22 interceptions in 15 meetings with the Cowboys.

Manning still sports an ugly season stat line: 12 touchdowns, 19 turnovers. But like his team, he's turned the corner. Consider Manning a low-end QB1 this week.


Eli Manning bounces back in Week 11 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning got back on track with a solid performance as he nearly cracked the 300-yard mark during Sunday's win over the Packers at home in Week 11.

Manning hooked up with Rueben Randle down the middle on a deep cross pattern for a 26-yard strike in the first quarter and was then picked off by Tramon Williams late in the second quarter.

Manning completed 25 of 35 passes for 279 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was also sacked four times and had one carry for a gain of 3 yards. He finished with a 92.4 passer rating in a 27-13 victory.

Manning passed for more than 250 yards for the fourth time this season. He'll look to keep things rolling at home against Dallas in Week 12. The Cowboys have allowed 313.0 passing yards per game, which ranks dead-last in the league.

Eli Manning aiming to break slump in Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been held under 250 passing yards in six of his past seven games. He'll be looking to break that trend during Sunday's contest against the Packers in Green Bay in Week 11.

Manning threw for 140 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Raiders. He has averaged 206.3 yards with a total of three touchdowns and four interceptions over his previous four games. He has only thrown for multiple touchdowns twice this season.

Manning will face a Green Bay defense that has allowed 246.1 passing yards per game, which ranks 21st in the league. Green Bay has allowed five passing touchdowns over the past two games. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 21.67 Fantasy points per game against Green Bay this season.

Manning was a turnover machine early on and now only has one interception over his last three games. That said, Fantasy owners should still be cautious with Manning this week. Consider him a low-end option in most Fantasy formats for Week 11.

Eli Manning held to one passing touchdown in Week 10 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning didn't have one of his best statistical performances Sunday against the Raiders, but he did enough to lead New York to a 24-20 win Week 10. Manning completed 12 of 22 passes for 140 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Manning's lone touchdown came on a 5-yard pass to Rueben Randle in the second quarter. Though, Manning had a few other chances to rack up passing touchdowns.

His first missed opportunity was on a 17-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz in the first half. However, Cruz couldn't bring in the touchdown as he was being covered pretty well.

Manning then targeted Hakeem Nicks on a 1-yard fade pass in the second half, but the touchdown went off Nicks fingertips. Though, a pass interference penalty was called on the defense.

Lastly, Manning should have hit Cruz for a 5-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but he missed a wide open Cruz with a bad throw.

Manning's only blunder came on an Oakland pick-six in the second quarter. Manning stared down Cruz on a short pass, which was picked off by Terry Porter and returned 43 yards for a touchdown. It was Manning's third pick-six this season.

Manning has failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in four straight games. The Giants are back in action Week 11 vs. Green Bay.


Eli Manning has good history after bye weeks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/8/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning has certainly had his problems this season heading into his Week 10 matchup against the Raiders. But he likes playing after a bye, which could help his cause this week.

Manning only has one game this season with more than 20 Fantasy points, which was Week 1. He only has two games this season with multiple touchdown passes, and he's thrown an interception in all but one game.

We know the matchup is good since the Raiders just allowed Nick Foles to pass for seven touchdowns, and four quarterbacks in total have scored at least 20 fantasy points against Oakland this year. But if that's not enough to trust Manning this week, check out his history after a bye week.

In his past five games after a bye going back to 2008, Manning is averaging 308 passing yards with 13 touchdowns and one interception. He has at least two touchdowns in every game and three games with 290 or more yards.

We hope Manning can continue this trend facing the Raiders, and he shapes up as a great bye-week replacement for Tom Brady or an injury replacement for Aaron Rodgers. This should easily be Manning's second-best game of the season since his dominant performance in Week 1 against Dallas.


Despite matchup, Eli Manning still not must-start QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning has not fared well against AFC West opponents this season. He's 0-2 against the AFC West, completing 53.5 percent of his passes (46 of 86) for 579 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions.

Manning will face an AFC West opponent for the third time this season Week 10 vs. Oakland. Manning is 2-0 in two career starts against Oakland, so maybe his fortunes against the AFC West will start to turn Sunday.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles exploded for seven passing touchdowns Week 9 against the Raiders. Quarterbacks now average 24 Fantasy points per week against Oakland, which is the highest average. Quarterbacks have totaled 17 passing touchdowns to five interceptions, while averaging 281.7 passing yards per game.

Manning has been much improved in his last two games, avoiding throwing an interception after totaling 15 interceptions in his first six games. Though, he has just one passing touchdown in his last two games and isn't taking as many chances downfield. He averaged 5.13 yards per attempts in Week 7 and 6.31 yards per attempt in Week 8.

While it does appear to be a favorable matchup on paper, Manning hasn't been a trustworthy Fantasy option this season. Consider him at best a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback Week 10.


Eli Manning leads Giants to second straight win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning led five scoring drives Week 8 at Philadelphia. Although the Giants didn't score a touchdown, New York pushed its winning streak to two games with a 15-7 win behind five field goals from Josh Brown.

Sunday was the second time in eight starts this season Manning failed to throw a touchdown. However, he didn't throw an interception for the second straight game after having at least one interception in his first six games (15 total). Manning completed 25 of 39 passes for 246 yards.

Manning had a couple chances at touchdowns Sunday. He just missed two passing touchdowns to Hakeem Nicks, who had trouble getting his feet down on both receptions. Manning also had tight end Larry Donnell open for a 10-yard touchdown in the first half. But Donnell didn't realize where he was on the field and caught the pass out of bounds.

Despite not throwing a touchdown, Manning did become the team's all-time passing leader. Manning's six-yard pass to Victor Cruz on the second drive gave Manning 33,463 passing yards, which eclipsed Phil Simms' 33,462 passing yards.

Manning and the Giants head into their Week 9 bye with a 2-6 record. They are back in action Week 10 vs. Oakland.


Will Eli Manning be able to avenge Week 5 loss to Eagles?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning doesn't have to wait long to avenge his Week 5 loss against the Eagles, as the NFC East foes prepare for the divisional rematch Week 8 in Philadelphia. The Eagles escaped with a 36-21 win a few weeks ago after Manning threw three key fourth-quarter interceptions.

Manning has had mixed results against the Eagles in his career. He's completing just 57.9 percent of his passes and is 8-11 in 19 career games against the Eagles, but he's thrown for 36 touchdowns and is averaging 235.9 passing yards per game.

Quarterbacks have had good success against Philadelphia this season. They average 23.7 Fantasy points per week, which is third-highest average. Quarterbacks also average 326 passing yards and have totaled 14 passing touchdowns in seven games. Manning, Robert Griffin III, Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Mike Glennon have all thrown for multiple touchdowns against the Eagles.

Manning has certainly been a frustrating Fantasy option. He started the season on a high note, totaling 36 Fantasy points Week 1. However, he hasn't surpassed 20 Fantasy points in the last six weeks, which included his team's first win Monday vs. Minnesota.

Manning did have 19 Fantasy points Week 5 vs. Philadelphia, but since he's been unreliable, it's best to view him as a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback Week 8.


Eli Manning plays first clean game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning did not throw an interception in Week 7 against the Vikings, his first clean game this season. Manning finished 23 of 39 for 200 yards and a touchdown while not adding to his league-leading 15 interceptions.

Manning could have had a bigger night, but he overthrew Hakeem Nicks in the end zone and Victor Cruz later dropped a pretty 13-yard pass that would have been a touchdown. Manning also could have thrown a pick-six, but cornerback Marcus Sherels dropped it.

In the second quarter, Manning saw Rueben Randle in single coverage and lofted it to him at the goal line. Randle adjusted before corner Chris Cook did and made an acrobatic 24-yard touchdown catch. It was Manning's 10th scoring pass this season.

Manning will try to build on this performance Week 8 at Philadelphia.
