2015 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Over his last seven games, Manning has six games with two TDs or less and one impact game (350 yards and six TDs). On the year, Manning has four games with 300+ passing yards and three games with three TDs or more. Miami ranks 21st in the league in NFL QB Fantasy defense, with two teams scoring over 30 Fantasy points and six teams scoring fewer than 20 Fantasy points. QBs have 24 passing TDs and four 300-yard passing games vs. the Dolphins. More steady than explosive.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/3): Manning has over 300 yards passing in back-to-back games (361 and 321), but his completion rate has been short in both games (54.6 and 51.0). Manning is the 10th ranked QB in 2015, with 3,021 passing yards and 23 TDs. He has four games with more than 300 yards passing in his last seven starts, while throwing 16 TDs and eight Ints. The Jets fell to 15th in QB Fantasy defense after allowing over 300 yards passing for the 4th time in their last six games, with 15 combined passing TDs allowed over this stretch. Fading defense with their best CB possibly missing another game points to an uptick game for Manning.
There is one reason and one reason only why Manning had a bounce-back season in 2014. That reason goes by the name of Odell Beckham. Eli recorded the second-best season of his career (4,410 passing yards, 30 TDs). He set career highs in completions (379), pass attempts (601) and completion percentage (63.1). Manning had three 300-yard games and one 400-yarder. He had three games with at least three touchdowns. This season, he'll have Beckham for the entire year, but with Victor Cruz recovering from major knee surgery, Rueben Randle is his only other strong receiving option. Manning racked up the stats last year because the Giants couldn't run the ball and were brutal on defense. I'm sure the Giants would like for their offense to be more balanced, so don't expect a repeat from Eli. He should still reach 4,000 yards and at least 28 scores. He's a borderline top-10 Fantasy QB.
