Giants QB Eli Manning 'a little nervous' in new offense

The Giants will open the 2014 season with a new offense and new coordinator, Ben McAdoo. Manning expressed his feelings about the changes recently in the New York Post. "You come in to the season a little nervous - you just don't have [the same comfort]," Manning said. "We've still got a lot of work to do and a lot to improve on to get comfortable." Manning, who had ankle surgery in April, says he's fully recovered from the operation and ready to devote himself to the task of learning the new scheme.

Fantasy Analysis:

Manning is coming off one of the worst years of his career, in which he threw 27 intercpetions and just 18 touchdowns. Things went badly awry with the Giants offense last year, so perhaps a reset of the system is warranted. Still, it's not good to hear a veteran QB expressing nervousness about running an offense. While a turnaround isn't out of the question, fantasy owners should be drafting Manning as a backup, not as a starter. He's currently ranked 14th among QBs by
