2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over 12 years in the NFL, Eli has a 97-86 record with two Super Bowl victories. Over the last two years, Manning has had the best passing opportunity of his career. He set a career high in pass attempts (601) in 2014 only to break that record last season (618). His completion rate (62.6) has been above his career average (59.3) in back-to-back season. Eli set a career high in passing TDs (35) while finishing with his second best year in passing yards (4436). His improved upside is clearly tied to the electric Odell Beckham. Rookie Sterling Shepard should more than offset the loss of Rueben Randle. Last year Manning had five games with 300 or more passing yards and one game with 400+ yards. Eli had two games with three TDs, two with four TDs, and one game with six TDs. Overall, his receiving corps lacks length so his success will be tied to his elite WRs and some production at RB and TE. It's tough for me to believe he'll beat his 2015 production in TDs while 4500 yards seems reasonable considering the new passing state of the NFL. Manning will offer backend starting value in 12 team leagues with a very favorable schedule.
