Eli Manning declares his ankle is 100 percent


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery April 10 but says his ankle already feels 100 percent, reports Newsday. "I feel good, I feel strong, I feel ready to go full speed," Manning said.

Eli Manning 'reenergized' by new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning played 10 years in Kevin Gilbride's offensive system. He told the New York Daily News that learning the new offense installed by first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo has reinvigorated him.

"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."

Despite undergoing arthroscopic ankle surgery April 10, Manning said he has not been limited during offseason workouts. Giants' training camp begins July 22.


QB coach working on Eli Manning's mechanics


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) New Giants quarterback coach Danny Langsdorf is focusing on Eli Manning's fundamentals and footwork.

"We’ve spent a lot of time fundamentally throughout the spring, both footwork and everything from ball fakes, ball handling to throwing accurately to dropping back," Langsdorf, the former Oregon State offensive coordinator, told The Star-Ledger.

"There’s a little bit different of footwork that we’re using, some of the routes that he’s used to, and we’re timing it up with the receivers so there’s a little bit of fundamental work but he’s a veteran guy and a pro that’s had success for a long time so we’re not doing anything, drastic changes, but just trying to fine-tune and tweak a few things."

Manning threw 18 touchdowns and a career-high 27 interceptions last season. 


Eli Manning says his ankle feels 100 percent


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Just one month removed from ankle surgery, Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he feels 100 percent though "the trainers tell me I'm not," reports the New York Daily News. He's already doing football drills and took half the practice reps in Monday's workout, the report said.

"I already feel like I can go out there and do everything," Manning said. “We’ll still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. If they want to limit me somewhat, I’ll understand that. But I want to take every single rep and they know that."


Eli Manning has started throwing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) The Giants have said quarterback Eli Manning (ankle surgery) won't begin practicing until training camp, but Manning already has begun throwing. That's according to his brother, Peyton Manning.

"He feels good," Peyton Manning told the New York Daily News. "He was doing some light throwing the other day, obviously just kind of upper-body stuff."

Eli Manning is out of his walking boot and has begun running. Peyton Manning described the April surgery as preemptive.

"Just the doctor thought this might pop up in the fall," Peyton Manning said. "Might as well knock it out now. It's hard to do, but it was the right thing to do, and I know he (Eli) will be excited once he can get back out there."


Curtis Painter recovering from knee surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Giants quarterback Curtis Painter had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday and will be out four weeks, the team announced. He's one of five QBs on the roster, along with Eli Manning, Josh Freeman, Ryan Nassib and newly-signed Rusty Smith.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw 27 interceptions against 18 touchdowns last season while posting his lowest completion percentage (57.5) in six years. Manning, who's recovering from an ankle procedure, is excited about working with new coordinator Ben McAdoo and the team's improved offensive line.

“I think you almost feel like this is an opportunity to re-invent yourself,” Manning said, per the New York Daily News. “And to come back and to change what occurred last year and some of the difficulties, and bounce back and kind of have a clean slate to kind of prove yourself again, and get back to playing at a high level.”


Josh Freeman still views himself as 'starting-caliber' QB


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) New Giants signal caller Josh Freeman said he still views himself "as a starting-caliber quarterback," reports The Star-Ledger.

"I love the situation because I have the opportunity to be around a guy that really had a lot of success, year after year and continues to win and get his team to the playoffs consistently," Freeman said, referring to Giants starter Eli Manning. "It's a really, really cool opportunity."

While Manning recovers from ankle surgery. Freeman will get a chance to prove himself in OTAs and minicamp.


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.
