Giants Beat: QB Eli Manning 'is in for a big season' in second year in offense - [Full Article]

Giants beat writer Jordan Raanan:

QB Eli Manning looked sharp this spring on the days the media was allowed inside the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. His interceptions were down (even if it's just practice). His arm looked lively. And he set the tone with an intensity you rarely see from Manning on the practice.

Usually, he's stoic. Business-like, really. This spring he was pumping his fist on touchdowns and waving his arms in self-disgust on easy misses.

Something tells me Manning is in for a big season in the second year in Ben McAdoo's offense.

Fantasy Impact: 

Manning finished the season as the #10 fantasy quarterback, but was #2 over the final six weeks, when OC Ben McAdoo said that the team finally played the way it wanted to play. In Odell Beckham, Manning finally has a stud receiver. The free agent signing of receiving specialist Shane Vereen and the return of a (hopefully) healthy Victor Cruz give Manning two more weapons to utilize in the passing game. He looks like a great value for those who want to wait on the position until the 9th or 10th round.
