Did Eli Manning have a “tired arm” before the bye? He did notice a difference last night.
“I never thought my arm was tired,” Eli Manning said. “I never felt like it in the last weeks. But after a week off and coming back to practice it felt good. It felt live. The ball seemed to be coming out with a little extra pop on it. So that’s always good. I think naturally after a week off with not throwing much, it definitely needed a little rest.”
Manning seemed just fine Sunday night against the Packers, so hopefully for owners he's back to what they expected. He's got some great matchups the next two weeks with Washington and New Orleans. But for fantasy playoffs, it gets a little tougher: Atlanta and Baltimore in Weeks 15 and 16.
