Eli Manning to rest arm over bye week, will try to reclaim fantasy value

Andy Lyons

Eli Manning will take a few days off from football activities as the Giants try to right the ship over the bye week. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning has been struggling mightily over the last three games, but he and his team now have a bye week to figure things out. According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Manning will rest his arm and take the whole week off from football activities. He will not throw or look at film until the team returns to practice next Monday.

Manning has zero TDs to four INTs over the last three games.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants have consistently denied that Manning has a "tired arm", but not many people buy that. He could use the time off to get his head straight.

The Giants are still in playoff contention, but they need to stop this tailspin before it gets worse. They take on the Giants in Week 12, and I'm honestly not sure what to expect for fantasy production. Play it by ear, I guess.
