Eli Manning failed to put up big numbers for fantasy owners against the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Even though Eli Manning finished with a 94.9 passer rating against the Cowboys, he didn't put together the kind of performance most fantasy owners were looking for. Manning threw for 213 yards total with a single touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys defense might be getting the hang of Rob Ryan's schemes. They handled the Giants offense to just 269 total yards on the night. Manning looked sharp at times, but drops by receivers, mainly Victor Cruz, and several sacks hindered his momentum. He'll look to bounce back next week against Tampa Bay.
