New York Giants QB Eli Manning was benched in favor of rookie QB Daniel Jones for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Manning loses all fantasy value for now. It's possible he is traded or released and lands in a spot that could rejuvenate some spot-start potential.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning was not immediately named the starter for Week 3 by head coach Pat Shurmur while meeting with reporters Monday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Manning hasn't been terrible thus far (556 yards passing, two touchdowns, two interceptions), especially considering most of his weapons are banged up at the moment. But the problem is it's unlikely to get any better for a player who has been a starting quarterback in the NFL for about three more years than he should have been. Rookie Daniel Jones may not get a start this week, but his time is coming. Neither quarterback will be anything more than a low-end QB2 at best for the foreseeable future.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning went 26-for-45 for 250 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Manning was without his top three receivers and struggled with interceptions this week. There is a good chance that Manning will lose his starting job at some point this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning completed 30 of 44 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Next to the phrase "empty yards" in the dictionary is a picture of Manning completing a pass to Bennie Fowler down 25 points. His final line was decent, and he avoided the interception (he did lose a fumble), but it never felt that the Giants were in that game after they jumped out to a 7-0 start. With the expectation that Daniel Jones will take over once the G-Men slip from contention, even Manning's modest QB3 value may be short lived.

Multiple New York Giants officials have said that QB Eli Manning will remain the starter as long as the team is in the playoff race.
Huddle Up: At this point of his career, Manning isn't worth owning in most traditional formats and should only be viewed as a viable fantasy option in two-quarterback leagues.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning was confirmed the starting quarterback by head coach Pat Shurmur and co-owner John Mara Thursday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: Manning figures to be on a short leash after rookie Daniel Jones dazzled all preseason. Manning is really only worth owning in two-quarterback leagues and doesn't serve as a fruitful backup in traditional leagues.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning worked with a private pitching coach this offseason at the suggestion of former MLB All-Star Al Leiter. 'I feel like it's paid off,' Manning said. 'I'm throwing the ball well, and arm is staying strong and I'm not losing anything. In training camp, sometimes you'd have four practices in a row, and you're not used to that; you can see your arm getting tired. But still feeling strong.'
Huddle Up: It's certainly not enough to bring Manning into the fantasy conversation entering the year, but he could become worthy of consideration as a late-season bye-week replacement if he plays above expectations deep into the campaign.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning turned 38 in January, making him the third-oldest quarterback in the league. However, he does not appear to be ready to retire anytime soon.
'You take it year by year. I've been blessed going into my 16th year. That's been a blessing in itself. I love what I'm doing. I love the work that goes into it. You never know when it's going to be your last year or when it's going to be the end for you, so you try to take advantage of the years you're here and enjoy every moment. ... I'm not rushing into retirement. ... I still love being around the guys and the teammates and playing this game. I'm going to play it for as long as I think I can hang with these guys,' Manning said.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he does not believes he is in a competition with QB Daniel Jones for the starting job. 'I mean no, I don't feel like it's a competition,' Manning said. 'I feel like I've got to do my job and I've got to compete every day and try to get better every day. That's the way it's been my whole life and that's just the way I've always approached practice every day to improve, to earn my place on the team, to earn the respect of the teammates and do it each year.' Manning said he has no problem helping Jones improve.
Huddle Up: Manning likely will be the starter Week 1 but could lose the job to Jones if the team is eliminated from playoff contention. Fantasy players probably should avoid the Giants quarterback situation this season.
