New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and coach Tom Coughlin had what was described Wednesday as a "nice conversation" about the team's recent play on offense. Coughlin said he has full confidence in Manning's ability to get the Giants playing well again.
Manning threw for just 125 yards and an interception in last week's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has thrown for less than 200 yards in each of New York's last two games and also failed to throw a touchdown pass in either contest. The Giants face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: There has been talk about Manning being in a slump, and he's certainly been in a fantasy rut the last two weeks. Manning hasn't had a multiple-touchdown passing game since Week 5 and that has caused him to drop in the fantasy quarterback rankings in recent weeks.
Manning should do better against the Bengals and he should be considered a mid-to-low No. 1 fantasy quarterback option for Week 10.
