Eli Manning hurt playing basketball?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) The Giants announced Thursday that quarterback Eli Manning underwent left ankle surgery after first being hurt in December, but ESPN reports Manning might have played basketball on his injured ankle last week at Duke.

The report doesn't say Manning hurt his ankle playing basketball -- or that he even played at all -- but there's a photo in the New York Daily News of Manning posing for pictures on a basketball court and even holding a ball.

Regardless of how Manning was hurt, he's expected to be ready for training camp and could possibly not have to miss any offseason work.


Eli Manning has ankle surgery


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) The Giants announced that quarterback Eli Manning underwent left ankle surgery Thursday afternoon. The procedure, a debridement of the ankle, was done by noted foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. 

Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain on his left ankle in late December and had been rehabbing since but still had discomfort, so he decided to have the ankle cleaned out. 

"The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks," Manning said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to the start of the offseason program on the 21st. I will be in the weight room and in the meeting rooms so we can all learn the new offense. I got some good work in this week at Duke, and I think it's smart to get this procedure done now so the ankle isn't an ongoing issue. I'm eager to get to work with our new offensive coaches and system."

Manning completed just 57.5 pct. of his passes last year for 3,818 yards and 18 touchdowns with 27 interceptions and a pair of fumbles lost. 


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 not worried about lawsuit


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning isn't worried about a recent lawsuit alleging he knowingly sold fake game-worn gear to collectors.

Manning said the team told him the lawsuit is completely without merit. Manning said he has no reason to believe otherwise, and will fight the lawsuit. Manning is alleged to have kept the actual game-worn items for himself while the team sold doctored items.


Eli Manning thought Peyton Manning was done after surgery


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning thought Peyton Manning was done after neck surgery, according to the New York Daily News.

"I saw him after that first surgery, this neck surgery, and I was pretty much convinced that he was done," Manning said. Manning said the first time he played catch with his brother, Peyton could barely throw the ball 15 yards. Eli added that he even had doubts during the preseason, when he saw Peyton and wondered whether it was going to work. "It’s been an amazing journey for him and what he’s overcome and for me to watch him to go through it, and the dedication to work has been inspiring," Manning said.


Giants deny lawsuit alleging they sold fake memorabilia


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) The Giants have denied a lawsuit claiming they sold fake memorabilia marketed as "game-worn," according to the New York Daily News.

The team released a statement saying, "the suit is completely without any merit whtasoever and we will defend it vigorously." The statement added that the team will not comment further on "pending litigation." The lawsuit claims the team and quarterback Eli Manning willingly sold items that were doctored by team employees to appear game-worn. 


Report: Giants, Eli Manning sold fake game-worn gear


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) A new lawsuit alleges the Giants and Eli Manning sold fake game-worn items to fans and collectors, according to the New York Post

According to the lawsuit, the team knowingly doctored items to seem game-worn in order to make more money and fool collectors. Manning is alleged to have taken part in order to keep the real items. The lawsuit claims that it's not just collectors who were fooled. A helmet on display in Canton is also alleged to be fake. 

The suit was filed by sports collector Eric Inselberg. Inselberg was indicted in 2011 for memorabilia fraud for selling fake jerseys. The Giants were one of Inselberg's largest suppliers of game-worn items. Inselberg alleged Giants equipment manager Joe Skiba, and his brother Ed Skiba, doctored the items before sending them to collectors. Manning allegedly sold fake gear through Steiner Sports. He had an exclusive deal with the company.


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 says ankle is doing well


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning said his ankle is doing well.

Manning injured his ankle during the club's final game, and had to be pulled due to the injury. He said he's been icing the injury and doing stimulation. He'll have the offseason to rehab.


Giants' hiring of McAdoo could make passing game re-emerge


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The Giants' hiring of Bob McAdoo as offensive coordinator signals a big change in how the offense will operate. ESPN's Dan Graziano had a great breakdown of what to expect from the new scheme in New York. 

McAdoo is expected to run a West Coast offense with zone-read principles. It means fewer deep passes and a more controlled, methodical approach but it also means letting your key receivers make plays after the quarterback goes through his reads quickly. That should pop open the door for Victor Cruz to be a factor again, make Rueben Randle a decent regular in the offense and potentially make Jerrel Jernigan a key contributor (this is assuming Hakeem Nicks isn't back with the team). All of that, in turn, would help prop up Eli Manning's stats.

It's something to watch this offseason as pretty much every Giants player will wind up being a sleeper in drafts this summer. 

 


Ex-coach: O-line was Eli Manning's Achilles heel


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/8/2014) Former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday and said that the main reason for the lack of success for Eli Manning in 2013 was because of the Giants' offensive line. 

"It just made it impossible for our quarterback to function," Gilbride said. "He's a guy where if you give him enough time, he's always going to be throwing the ball to the right person, he's going to know what you're doing defensively, he's going to see through your disguises, he's going to be an accurate passer. But he's not a scrambler and you've got to give him some help. And if you give him some help he's proven that he can win a championship for you."

Gilbride added that he tried making many changes to their game plans including more three-step drops but once defenses caught on the team began to struggle to adapt.

Manning had five-year lows in yardage (3,818), touchdowns (18) and completion percentage (57.5) while posting a career-worst 27 interceptions. 


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 says ankle 'should heal up pretty quickly'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is not concerned about the ankle injury that knocked him out Week 17. "It's still sprained, but it should heal up pretty quickly," he said.

Manning threw 18 touchdowns and a league-high 27 interceptions this season. He said the offense will benefit if everyone is able to participate in the offseason program and work on timing and fundamentals. Last year, receivers Victor Cruz (contract) and Hakeem Nicks (groin) did not attend the entire 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.

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 picked off twice in loss to San Diego


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) 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
(12/5/2013) 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.
