Giants QB Eli Manning no longer on injury report


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is no longer on the injury report after being listed with a back injury last week. Manning played the entire Week 15 win over the Redskins and is good to go for Sunday's game at St. Louis.

He's thrown eight touchdowns against two interceptions over the past four weeks. Manning will play in his 166th consecutive game Sunday.


Eli Manning leads Giants to season sweep of Redskins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes to rookie Odell Beckham, leading New York to a 24-13 win Week 15 and a season sweep of the Redskins. He completed 23 of 34 passes for 250 yards.

Manning connected with Beckham on touchdown passes of 6, 10 and 35 yards. He could have had a four-touchdown performance, but a 30-yard touchdown to Beckham early in the fourth quarter was called back due to a holding penalty.

In two games against Washington, Manning tossed for seven touchdowns and threw just one interception. He even had a rushing touchdown in a 45-14 win Week 4.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.

(12/14/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning was cleared to play Week 15 against the Redskins, keeping his streak of consecutive games played alive at 165. Manning was listed as probable due to a back injury. He practiced in full Friday.

Those players include linebacker Jameel McClain (knee), linebacker Mark Herzlich (concussion) and quarterback Eli Manning (back).

Giants QB Manning on injury report, coaches not overly concerned


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning popped up on the team's injury report Wednesday with a back injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said "No one seems to be overly concerned." Manning was in the trainers' room Sunday, icing down his back. 

Manning currently has the longest active streak in the NFL, playing in 164 consecutive games for New York.


Giants, Eli Manning bounce back from disappointing loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Quarterback Eli Manning helped the Giants bounce back from a disappointing loss Week 13 at Jacksonville by leading New York to a 36-7 rout Week 14 at Tennessee. Manning completed 26 of 42 passes for 260 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Manning's favorite receiver again Sunday was rookie Odell Beckham, who caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Manning in the first quarter to put New York ahead 10-0. Beckham finished with 11 catches for 130 yards.

The Giants' shutout bid Sunday ended when Manning threw an interception midway through the third quarter, which was returned 23 yards for a touchdown by Marqueston Huff.

Manning has thrown just one touchdown pass in four of his last five games. The Giants are back in action Week 15 vs. Washington.


Two second-half fumbles prove costly for Manning in Giants' loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Giants turned the ball over three times in the second half Sunday at Jacksonville, which included two fumbles by quarterback Eli Manning, and the Jaguars rallied from a 21-point deficit to emerge with a 25-24 win Week 13.

Manning, who didn't thrown an interception, completed 24 of 34 passes for 247 yards and one touchdown. His lone passing touchdown was a 3-yard completion to Preston Parker early in the second quarter, which gave New York a 14-0 lead.

Manning lost a fumble early in the third quarter, which Jacksonville turned into a defensive touchdown. Manning then lost a fumble on the first play of the team's final series, which started at their 20-yard line with 28 seconds left.

The Giants are back in action Week 14 at Tennessee.


Good times ahead for Eli Manning?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Because of one especially awful game Week 11 against San Francisco in which he threw five interceptions, Eli Manning's stock isn't as high as it should be in Fantasy right now, but remove it from the equation and you'll see his production has gone up a notch since rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham replaced an injured Victor Cruz in the starting lineup.

It was especially evident in Week 12 when, aided by Beckham's spectacular one-handed catch falling into the end zone, Manning threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns. But it was nothing new for him. He has averaged 307.0 yards with nine touchdown passes in four games with Cruz out of the picture -- again, removing Week 11 from the equation.

It's not so surprising, really, given the effort he has made to deliver Beckham the ball, targeting him an average of 11.0 times over the last four weeks. If you have faith in Beckham to continue to deliver -- and after that catch Sunday, how could you not? -- then to some extent, you should have faith in Manning as well.

His position is much deeper, of course, so you have to weigh the downside as well as the upside with him. But given his matchups over the next few weeks, including Week 13 at Jacksonville, Manning is at least usable in 12-team leagues to close out the season.


Giants QB Eli Manning tallies 338 yards, three TDs in Week 12


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 29 of his 40 pass attempts for 338 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Manning hooked up with rookie Odell Beckham on a pair of touchdowns in the first half, including an outstanding one-handed, 43-yard catch that will certainly find its way on every Play of the Year list. The Giants took a 21-10 lead into halftime before the Cowboys scored two touchdowns in the third quarter. Manning was able to bring his team back by connecting with Adrien Robinson from one-yard out with just three minutes remaining, but the Giants defense was unable to stop the Cowboys from responding one more time.

Manning's one interception came on an overthrow to a wide-open receiver who looked like he had a clear lane to the end zone with an on-target throw. Even with that mistake, it was an excellent rebound performance after throwing five interceptions in his previous game. He's set to face off with the Jaguars in Week 13.


Giants QB Manning: I want to finish career here


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning has claimed he wants to finish his career with that franchise.

"I don't want anything else but to be here, play here and win another championship here," Manning said Wednesday.

Manning, who has already led the team to two Super Bowl titles, is coming off a five-interception game against San Francisco. It marked the team's fifth consecutive loss and all but eliminated the Giants from playoff contention.


Coughlin upset Giants missed big-play opportunity in Week 11 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Giants coach Tom Coughlin has plenty to be upset about as New York heads into Week 12 amid a five-game losing streak. The Giants had plenty of chances to end their losing skid during a 16-10 loss Week 11 vs. San Francisco, but the team was hurt by quarterback Eli Manning's five interceptions.

Coughlin voiced his displeasure after the loss about the Giants' failed attempt to score a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter on four plays from the 4-yard line. On Monday, however, Coughlin expressed disappointment with another failed play earlier in the game, which he believes would have resulted in a 76-yard touchdown reception by rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

On their second offensive drive, the Giants had a second-and-8 from the 24-yard line. Manning faked the handoff to running back Rashad Jennings and had two receivers -- Beckham and tight end Larry Donnell -- running downfield. Unfortunately, Manning locked in on Donnell, who was running a corner fade, and missed Beckham, who ran a deep post and appeared to have two San Francisco defenders beat. Manning threw an incomplete pass to Donnell and two plays later they punted the football.

"On the seventh play of the game -- we scored on the fifth -- we had another opportunity for a score there," Coughlin said Monday, per NJ.com. "We had Odell running open on that play."


Eli Manning tosses five interceptions in Week 11 loss vs. 49ers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Quarterback Eli Manning tied a career-high with five interceptions in the Giants' 16-10 loss Week 11 vs. San Francisco. He completed 22 of 45 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown.

Manning had a lot of struggles near or inside the red zone Sunday. His second interception came on a third-and-7 play from the 49ers' 17-yard line. His third interception was picked off at the 49ers' 25-yard line. His fourth interception was intercepted at the 49ers' 20-yard line.

His last interception was picked off at the 49ers' 2-yard line after the Giants failed to convert on four straight passes from San Francisco's 4-yard line late in the fourth quarter. The Giants were driving for a go-ahead score at the time.

Manning had all of two interceptions in his previous seven games and six in his first nine games. His only other five-interception game happened in Dec. 2013 against the Seahawks.

Manning's lone touchdown was a 19-yard completion to tight end Larry Donnell in the first quarter, which gave New York a 7-0 lead. Manning has thrown just one touchdown pass in two straight games.

The Giants are back in action Week 12 vs. Dallas.


Giants QB Eli Manning turns in average day Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning turned in an average game Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Manning completed 29 of 44 passes for 283 yards and one touchdown. He threw one interception, ending a streak of 177 passes without a pick. That was the longest such streak of Manning's career. He also lost a fumble during the contest.

Manning actually did a nice job keeping the Giants in the game until the end of the third quarter. With under a minute left, Manning was picked off on a deep pass to the end zone. At that point, the Seahawks completely dominated. Manning couldn't keep the pace, not scoring the rest of the game.

Manning will take on the 49ers in his next start. 


Eli Manning looking to keep rolling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is enjoying a solid stretch of games, as he puts a four-game streak without an interception on the line against an opportunistic Seahawks defense in Week 10.

Manning has 20-plus Fantasy points in each of his last two games and five of the last six, with just two games below 19 points under his belt all season long. He will look to keep that going against a Seahawks defense that looks a bit less difficult than it did at the start of the season. Opposing quarterbacks are averaging 18.0 Fantasy points per game against the Seahawks, with multiple touchdowns in six of eight games so far.

Manning has taken to the new offense in New York well, and could eclipse his season total in touchdowns from last season (16) during the course of Sunday's game. Playing in Seattle is always a tough test, but Manning is playing well enough to be considered a No. 2 Fantasy option this week. 


Eli Manning makes the most of garbage time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw for a season-high 359 yards in Monday's 40-24 loss to the Colts, doing most of his damage when the game was out of reach. It was 40-10 in the fourth quarter when Manning threw touchdown passes to tight end Larry Donnell and wideout Corey Washington.

Manning finished 27 of 52 after not throwing 40 times in any previous game. He fumbled twice, losing one, but did not throw an interception for the fourth straight game. He had an 18-yard run late in the game.

Manning often overthrew his receivers Monday but also was victimized by several drops. He'll visit the Seahawks in Week 10.


Tom Coughlin agrees with Giants GM, but defends Eli Manning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Giants coach Tom Coughlin agreed Thursday with general manager Jerry Reese's assessment that the offense needs to be more aggressive. However, while Reese put the onus on quarterback Eli Manning, Coughlin felt the supporting cast could play a bigger role in helping the offense be more productive. 

"We’d like to see the ball in the end zone more, however it gets there," Coughlin said, per NJ.com. "We do realize that when you’re playing some of the people we’re playing, you’ve got to give yourself more chances to be able to do that ... You’ve got to protect the passer, you’ve got to kind of do all of the things that we tried to structure in order to do. We’ve gotten good numbers out of the quarterback position. We need even better and we need more production out of the people that are involved in handling the ball – the runners, the catchers, etc."


Giants GM wants Eli Manning, offense 'to be more aggressive'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) The Giants head into Week 9 even in turnover differential and quarterback Eli Manning has thrown just five interceptions, including none in his last three games. Though, general manager Jerry Reese indicated he would like to see the offense take a few more chances following a 3-4 start.

"As an offense, we need to be more aggressive. I think at times, we're a little bit almost too cautious what we do offensively," Reese said, per NJ.com. "You know, this is the National Football League. You have to go out there, man, you have to win the game. You can't think something is going to fall in your lap. You have to go out and take the games. I think we have to be more aggressive offensively.

"I appreciate Eli taking care of the ball and not turning it over. Of course, that correlates to wins a lot of the time. But you can't be too cautious. You have to throw the ball downfield and you have to score points in this game to win."


An encouraging performance for Eli Manning


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) Playing his first game without star wide receiver Victor Cruz, who's out for the season with a torn patella tendon, Giants quarterback Eli Manning still managed to bounce back from arguably his worst game of the season with one of his best Week 7 at Dallas, completing 21 of 33 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns.

It was his fifth game in six with multiple touchdown passes and his second with at least three. And he did it against a defense that had generally kept quarterbacks out of the end zone, recording nearly as many interceptions (seven) as it had allowed touchdown passes (eight) prior to Week 7.

Though two of his touchdown passes went to rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham, who wasn't even available to him the first four weeks, Manning did a nice job of spreading the ball around. None of the touchdowns went to his two leading receivers, Larry Donnell and Rueben Randle.

Judging by this performance, Manning knows how to make use of the weapons the Giants have and doesn't need Cruz to remain successful in Fantasy. His bad games can be really bad, but his good games have been frequent enough for you to give him another shot when he returns from a bye Week 9 against Indianapolis.


Giants' Eli Manning tosses three scores Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning tossed three touchdowns Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Manning completed 21 of 33 attempts, gaining 248 yards. He threw three touchdowns, and did not turn the ball over. Manning was able to find success against a Cowboys' defense that shut down the Seahawks Week 6. He was consistently able to throw from a clean pocket, and did not take a sack. Manning averaged a solid 7.5 yards per completion during the contest. Odell Beckham Jr. wound up being Manning's go-to target in the red zone, hauling in two scores during the game. 

The Giants are on a bye Week 8.  


Wait to see how Eli Manning adapts


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) Though Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a mess from the beginning Week 6 at Philadelphia, losing top wide receiver Victor Cruz in the third quarter probably didn't help. Cruz suffered a season-ending injury, so Manning will have to find a way without him. And given his track record of extreme highs and lows, it's dangerous to assume he will right away.

He has other weapons, of course. Rueben Randle has actually been the Giants' most-targeted receiver this year, ahead of even Cruz, and Odell Beckham is a first-rounder who missed the first four weeks with a hamstring injury. Tight end Larry Donnell has had some big games as well, though he hasn't been involved as much recently.

It's just that with quarterback being as deep as it is, you really don't need to gamble on Manning until we see how he adjusts. It's not like his matchup Week 7 at Dallas is so great. The Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, but because of all their interceptions, they've allowed the fourth-fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Manning was off to a nice start this season and may prove he's just as effective without Cruz as with him. But you want to let him actually prove it.


Eli Manning roughed up in shutout loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Giants could not run the ball Sunday night, and they couldn't protect Eli Manning either. Manning took six sacks and failed to lead a scoring drive in the 27-0 loss at Philadelphia.

Manning completed 13 of 23 throws for a season-low 151 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. It was a major step back for Manning, who had thrown for eight touchdowns and run for another in the three previous games. 

Manning will try to bounce back Week 7 at streaking Dallas.


No reason to shy away from Eli Manning


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning is off to a great start, having thrown for multiple scores in four straight games, yet Fantasy owners have been slow to come around to him, starting him in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.

It's understandable, really, with quarterback being such a deep position and Manning having a history of inconsistency, both from week to week and year to year. But if you don't have a slam-dunk starter at the position, meaning an Aaron Rodgers or Andrew Luck type, Manning's matchup alone is reason to give him a shot in Week 6.

The Giants are at Philadelphia, which ranks 29th against the pass, allowing 274.2 yards per game, and has given up the second-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. The Eagles were responsible for Kirk Cousins' 427-yard, three-touchdown performance back in Week 3, and because they're a strong offensive team, opponents are generally motivated to continue throwing the ball against them.

I think Dave Richard's ranking of Manning for this week -- fifth among quarterbacks -- is about right. I might also start Philip Rivers over Manning, but otherwise, he's golden.


Eli Manning on career-best pace in several categories


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) In the new offense installed by coordinator Ben McAdoo, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has completed 66.3 percent of his passes, the highest five-game figure of his career. His career completion percentage entering this season was 58.5.

Manning has tied his career high with 11 touchdown passes through five games. He also did that in 2006 and 2011.

Manning owns a passer rating of 95.6, substantially higher than his career mark of 81.2 entering this year.

He'll take on the Eagles in Philly on Sunday night.


Giants QB Eli Manning throws for multiple TDs again Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw two touchdowns Week 5, including the go-ahead score with 10:02 left in the fourth quarter, leading New York to a 30-20 win vs. Atlanta. Manning completed 19 of 30 passes for 200 yards, while totaling minus-3 yards on two carries.

Manning opened the scoring when he connected with Rueben Randle for a 3-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He then gave New York a 24-20 lead in the fourth quarter when he hit rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham, who was playing in his first regular season game, for a 15-yard touchdown.

Manning has now thrown for multiple touchdowns in four straight games. He hasn't thrown an interception in two of his last three games.

The Giants are back in action Week 6 at Philadelphia.


So you added Eli Manning. Now what?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) Understandably, Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a popular pickup on the waiver wire this week after throwing four touchdown passes at Washington. He has multiple touchdown passes in three of four games and was considered a Fantasy mainstay just a couple short years ago.

But I'm not sure I buy him as more than a backup in Fantasy. The inconsistency, both from week to week and year to year, is too well established. Honestly, apart from the 2011 season, when he threw for a career-high 4,933 yards and 29 touchdowns, I never thought he was hot stuff anyway. His bad games tend to be really bad and not always so predictable.

Of course, I'd put his chances of having a bad game this week at pretty close to nil. He's home against the Falcons, who just allowed 558 yards of offense to the Vikings, of all teams, and rank 30th against the pass, allowing 276.3 yards per game. If I was a betting man, I'd bet on Manning keeping his multi-touchdown streak alive.

But I'd bet even more on Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan Philip Rivers, Matthew Stafford, etc. I don't see how you start Eli Manning over any of that group, so I think Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's ranking of him, even with the favorable matchup, is more or less appropriate.
