Eli Manning 're-energized' by new system

NFL.com - [Full Article]

One offseason storyline in New York has been the influence of new Giants coordinator Ben McAdoo, who was imported when Kevin Gilbride retired after 10 seasons with the club.

Last month New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the new offense forced quarterback Eli Manning to do a lot of homework. The signal-caller agrees that learning the new scheme has refreshed him after his horrific 2013 season.

"It's re-energized me," Manning told the New York Daily News. "I'm trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don't have 10 years. I have a few months."

Fantasy Impact: 

Manning had a terrible year in 2013, but should bounce back this season. WR Hakeem Nicks is gone but WR Victor Cruz remains and rookie WR Odell Beckham should produce as well. This could also be a big year for WR Rueben Randle, assuming Manning does bounce back. We rank Eli 21st among our QBs, but he may not even get drafted in typical leagues. If you're counting on a bounce back and targeting him as a QB2, it looks like you can wait very late to get him.
