New York Giants owner John Mara would consider it ideal if longtime quarterback Eli Manning started all 16 games and No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones didn't see the field during the 2019 season. He also cautioned to temper expectations on the rookie quarterback based solely off the preseason opener.
The Giants' record this season will determine if, or when, Jones gets on the field. As the story said, the Giants have been ecstatic about what they've seen from Jones since April's draft, even if it's what they expected. He picked up the playbook and immediately looked like he belonged in the spring, has played well during training camp and was close to perfect in his preseason debut.
NYG QB Eli Manning - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Eli Manning had 309 yards, a touchdown and a pick last week against the Colts. It was only his fourth game over 300 yards this season, and while he added a rushing touchdown, it was his 10th game this year with one or fewer passing touchdowns. Manning has been disappointing as a fantasy option all season, and there’s no reason to think he’ll finish strong against the Cowboys this week. Dallas has allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this year. Manning should remain on waivers in all league formats during what could be his final game as a Giant.
