Manning has a revised set of offensive weapons for the upcoming season, including free-agent pickup Brandon Marshall and 2017 first-round pick Evan Engram, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After the aforementioned moves, Manning has exchanged the broken down Victor Cruz for Marshall while adding one of the promising tight ends from a stacked class of rookies. With Marshall and Engram joining wideouts Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, competent pass-catching backs Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen and tight end Will Tye, the Giants boast their best array of skill-position talent of the last decade and perhaps Manning's entire career. Unfortunately for Manning, he's regressed significantly as he prepares for his age-36 season, struggling with deep passes (52.8 QB rating on throws of 21-plus yards in 2016) and being saddled with an uninspiring head coach (Ben McAdoo). However, Manning has the weapons at his disposal to reach his heights of the past.

Manning completed 23 of 44 passes for 299 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers. He also gained 11 yards on his sole rush and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Manning was victimized by multiple drops on the part of his receivers throughout the game, but he still turned in a serviceable stat line. He started off the game hot, completing seven of his first 10 throws, and also fired a 41-yard scoring dart to rookie speedster Tavarres King in the third quarter to bring New York to within 14-13 at the time. However, a Giants defense that appeared to have Aaron Rodgers' number for the majority of the first half seemed to deflate after another successful Rodgers' Hail Mary just before intermission, and the game got progressively away from them in the second half. Manning's 13th season thus ends in disappointing fashion, but he did manage to throw for 4,000 yards for the third straight campaign, although his 86.0 QBR was notably his lowest in the last three seasons.

Manning completed 17 of 27 passes for 180 yards in Sunday's 19-10 victory over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Manning averaged just 6.7 yards per attempt en route to his lowest yardage total of the season, but he went without a turnover for just the fifth time and was able to help his team to a victory in the season finale. He will finish the regular season slate with a pedestrian 26:16 TD:INT ratio and his 4,027 passing yards are his second-lowest total in the last eight seasons. Manning has a reputation for improving his play in the postseason and will likely need to do so if the Giants are to make any noise this time around.

Manning will start Sunday's season finale at Washington, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. "Eli is going to play the game, yes," head coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Locked into the five seed on the NFC side of the playoff bracket, the Giants have a quandary on their hands: whether to trot out regulars like Manning and Odell Beckham in a meaningless game. McAdoo seemingly answered the query during media availability Wednesday, but he didn't outline any of the scenarios under which he would shut down his quarterback. If Manning is indeed under center for the Giants' first offensive snap Sunday, he'll be just one game short of the 200th consecutive regular season start of his career, a feat that has been accomplished by just two other QBs in NFL history (Brett Favre and Peyton Manning).

Manning completed 38 of 63 passes for 356 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in Thursday's 24-19 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The final stat line, save for the interceptions, was rewarding from a fantasy perspective, but Manning's mistakes haunted the Giants in a real-world sense. He was the victim of a pick-six by Malcolm Jenkins in the first quarter that sunk the Giants into an early 14-0 hole, and saw Jenkins victimize him again early in the fourth on a deep pass down the right side intended for Sterling Shepard. The third one put the proverbial nail in the coffin, as Manning's desperation heave for Will Tye on third down with 14 seconds remaining was plucked out of the air by Terrance Brooks, sealing the win for Philadelphia. The 63 pass attempts were easily a season high for Manning, as were his 38 completions. Unfortunately for the Giants, so were his three interceptions, which played a large part in denying New York the chance to clinch a playoff berth and cinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC for the Dallas Cowboys. Manning will need to bounce back in next week's pivotal season finale on the road against the Washington Redskins.

Manning completed 20 of 28 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 17-6 win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Manning was efficient and effective, completing 71 percent of his passes while hooking up with Sterling Shepard and O'dell Beckham for touchdowns in the first and fourth quarters, respectively. He has been quite prolific at home of late, with 15 touchdown passes in his last six games at MetLife Stadium. Manning also avoided turning the ball over after doing so five times in his previous two contests, and he will look to produce more of the same next week against the Eagles.

Manning completed 17 of 28 passes for 193 yards and one touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Cowboys. He also lost two fumbles.

EDGE Analysis

Manning was under duress for much of the game and struggled at times, but he was able to hang in and connected with Odell Beckham on a 61-yard touchdown in the third quarter that ultimately decided the game. He has seen a downturn in production, failing to top 200 passing yards in the last three games and turning the ball over five times compared to three touchdowns in the last two. Manning's Giants are now 9-4, however, and he will continue to lead the charge for playoff positioning next week against the Lions.

Manning completed 24 of 39 passes for 195 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 24-14 loss at Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Manning struggled in the first half, completing just 9 of 14 passes for 70 yards, while tossing an interception at the edge of the goal line. That turnover eventually led to an Antonio Brown touchdown reception. The veteran QB was able to put up some numbers in garbage time, including a short touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in the final minute of the game. It's somewhat surprising that Manning didn't post better overall numbers against a vulnerable secondary. In any case, he'll look to get back on track next week in a huge matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.

Manning completed 15 of 27 pass attempts for 194 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Manning wasn't terribly efficient and averaged a pedestrian 7.2 yards per attempt, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective by avoiding turnovers while connecting with Odell Beckham for a pair of scores and Dwayne Harris for a third. The veteran now has 12 touchdown passes in his last four games and hasn't thrown an interception since Week 10. Manning's yardage totals have waned during that time due to a suppressed amount of attempts, but he should be forced to throw early and often next week in what has the makings of a shootout with the Steelers.

Manning completed 21 of 36 passes for 227 yards (6.3 YPA), two touchdowns and no interceptions. Manning did not take a sack.

EDGE Analysis

Other than a 48-yard catch and run by Victor Cruz, Manning's longest completion was a 20-yard pass to Odell Beckham. Coach Ben McAdoo also sat on a six-point lead for the entire fourth quarter, taking his foot off the gas and not giving Manning a good chance to put up bigger numbers. Manning has a great matchup against the Browns next week, but expect a lot of running plays if the team has even a modest second-half lead.
