Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
Manning finally finished a game as a QB1 for the first time in 2016. It's not all sunshine and lollipops though as it took several missed tackles and completely inept defensive scheming though for his breakthrough to happen. The running game will continue to struggle as Eli will be forced to throw close to 50 times again. Manning should fair well but it will require more ODB 'after the catch' to inflate his numbers.
Passsing: 282 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Now the only Manning in the NFL, Eli finished as the fantasy QB8 and the fantasy QB7 over the last two years, so there's obviously no doubt that offensive-coordinator-turned-head-coach Ben McAdoo's system has been a godsend for Manning's production. This past season, he set new career highs in attempts, completions and touchdown passes. McAdoo's Giants should remain a pass-first team because little improvement is expected from their 18th-rated ground game. Here is the worst kept secret in the Big Apple: elite playmaker Odell Beckham has been the key to Manning's success. Heading into 2016, the rest of the Big Blue receiver corps, however, is loaded with uncertainty and mediocrity. Fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if the durable 35-year-old Manning (league-high 194 straight games played) starts slowly, and there's a small decline in his production. With Rueben Randle (Eagles) gone, Victor Cruz is the next man up, but he's trying to come back from knee and calf injuries and hasn't played since October 2014. Talented rookie second-round pick Sterling Shepard, however, looks like the real deal. Known for his blazing speed and excellent route running, Shepard will see plenty of action in the slot (the Giants run a ton of three-receiver sets). The serviceable Dwayne Harris remains in the mix, and Will Tye has supplanted Larry Donnell as the starting tight end. Don't forget that Shane Vereen is one of the NFL's best at catching the ball out of the backfield, and the Giants should use him more this time around due to some of the uncertainty at wideout. Don't get nervous about Manning's revamped receiver corps, as long as Beckham is on the field, Manning has fantasy-starter upside.

Passing: 2479 Yards, 15 TD, 9 INT.
Rushing: 14 Yards, 0 TD.
