Eli Manning put on a show through the air against Tampa Bay. We break down the fantasy implications.

It took a career performance from Eli Manning to top the Buccaneers in Week 2. Manning threw for a personal best 510 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in his matchup against Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Manning made it tougher on himself by turning the ball over three times, but he certainly made up for up as he aired it out with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. Manning didn't do a whole lot in Week 1 of the regular season, so this was a good sign for owners waiting for him to light up the stat sheet with his big arm. Ahmad Bradshaw left the game with a neck injury, and if he misses time going forward, Manning will be relied on even more.
