Eli Manning Fantasy Stats: Big Day For Giants QB

Eli Manning had a big fantasy day on Sunday against the Dolphins. The Giants quarterback put up some nice stats, tossing for two touchdowns and 349 yards to lead New York to a come-from-behind win.

Eli Manning was up against the Miami Dolphins in Week 8, so the maddeningly inconsistent quarterback had a great matchup to exploit. When Manning has been on this season, he's been on. He has 11 touchdowns in six games, averaging nearly 300 yards a game.

The Dolphins' defense made Tim Tebow look completely incompetent for 90 percent of last week's game, but more telling of their ability was Mark Sanchez's Week 6 performance, when he struggled early, but once he got rolling, the Dolphins gave him more holes than swiss cheese, never more evident than Santonio Holmes' too-easy 38-yard touchdown. They struggle with coverage, and once a receiver catches a ball, they can't tackle.
