Giants QB Eli Manning 'rejuvenated' in new offense

I mentioned this in passing earlier today, but the Giants are installing a new offense under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. Much like what Gary Kubiak is doing in Baltimore, McAdoo's system revolves around quick-hit passes and timing routes. Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger says the system is "the single biggest change for the Giants this offseason" and has "rejuvenated" quarterback Eli Manning.
"Being tasked with learning a new system seems to have rejuvenated a somewhat stagnant Manning, who happens to be coming off a 27-interception season," Raanan wrote Monday. "He admitted spending more time studying and focusing on the intricacies of the offense. He admitted being more mentally stimulated this offseason than in previous year."

Fantasy Analysis:

Such a system was a boon for Philip Rivers last year. Manning is just 33 years old and considering what he has done in the past, such a rebound season is within reason. The Giants really need their young wideouts to step up, but Manning has sizeable value as a late-round QB2.
