Eli Manning throws 4 TDs in return to fantasy form

USA TODAY Sports

Eli Manning went 22-for-35 passing for 259 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions during the Giants' win over the Saints on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eli Manning went 22-for-35 passing for 259 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions to help the New York Giants defeat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Manning's four scores went to Martellus Bennett, Domenik Hixon, Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, respectively.

Manning's four scores were a season high. He had been held without a touchdown in three weeks leading up to the Giants' Week 11 bye, but in three weeks since he has thrown eight passing touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Manning appears to be returning to form after hitting lull around the midpoint of the regular season. He has tough matchups to close out the year, so we'll see whether he can keep pace. He has padded his stats against weaker secondaries lately, and a slate of Atlanta, Baltimore and Philadelphia to close the year could present problems. Manning should be a safe start, but he may not be an elite fantasy starter.
