Giants WR Odell Beckham the star at camp so far

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Through the first week of practices, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been the star of the show and shown no ill effects of a shattered right ankle that ended his season in Week 5 of 2017, whether he has lined up outside or in the slot.

Fantasy Impact:

The story added the additions on the O-line seem to have given Manning a boost at this stage in his career. Overall, the Giants offense looks to have a lot of fantasy potential this season.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Coming off a tumultuous season that included the first benching of his career, Eli Manning will enter 2018 with some new weapons to work with, as well as a new head coach. He will finally have an elite running back behind him, with second-overall pick Saquon Barkley set to take the league by storm, and he should benefit from the return of Odell Beckham Jr. from injury. Manning will also have a new left tackle in former New England Patriot Nate Solder, and a new guard in Will Hernandez, a second-round rookie from UTEP. New head coach Pat Shurmur helped journeyman Case Keenum to top-15 fantasy production last season, so there is upside for Manning.

Fantasy Downside

Manning has always been wildly erratic and he’s coming off one of the worst seasons of his career. He threw for only 3,468 yards last season—his lowest total since 2008—and only 19 touchdowns. It was one of only two seasons as a full-time starter that Eli failed to reach 20 touchdown passes. Manning is also 37 years old, and if the new pieces on the offensive line don’t mesh right away, he may struggle with protection issues up front again. Throw in learning a new system, and it’s hard to get too excited about Manning at this stage in his career.

2018 Bottom Line

Manning will likely go undrafted in most leagues, but he’ll present some interesting streaming value throughout the season. He’s been a viable fantasy option in spurts throughout his career, and the Giants are bound to have better luck with injuries than last year, when Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard all missed time throughout the year. He’s a viable backup in leagues that start two quarterbacks, but he should probably stay on waivers in single-quarterback leagues.
