The best fantasy football QBs, No. 10: Eli Manning

Four quarterbacks have thrown at least 30 touchdowns in both of the last two seasons. They are Rodgers, Brees, Tom Brady and the younger Manning. Not only is Eli now officially the best Manning in the NFL, he’s also one of the most undervalued quarterbacks in all fantasy formats. Manning has the luxury of throwing 160 or so passes to Odell Beckham Jr., one of the best receivers in the league, plus the Giants added rookie Sterling Shepard out of Oklahoma in the second round of the 2016 draft. That gives Manning two receivers he can lean on for the first time since the halcyon days of the Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks pairing. The Giants’ run game remains a work in progress, which means it will probably be another 600-pass-attempt season for Manning. You won’t be disappointed if you wait on the position and end up with Manning as your primary signal caller.
