Eli Manning throws 4 interceptions in poor fantasy performance

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Eli Manning threw four interceptions against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is off to a ... rather poor start. Manning has thrown a whopping seven interceptions over the first two games of the regular season. He's also thrown for 812 yards and five touchdowns, but that doesn't make up for the turnovers and the fact that the Giants are now off to an 0-2 start to the 2013-14 season.

On Sunday, the Giants lost to the Denver Broncos, 41-23, with Manning not finding the endzone until the final quarter. Manning completed 28 of 49 passes with one touchdown (a 23-yard pass to running back Da'Rel Scott) and the aforementioned four interceptions.

Denver, of course, put up a tough defense, but Manning indisputably had a poor game. Its unclear what's wrong with him at this point but he needs to tighten up his game if the Giants are to win anything this season.

Fantasy Impact: Manning isn't the top fantasy football quarterback, but with weapons like Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, he was a desirable option for many. But nobody wants a quarterback who turns over the ball seven times in two games. He is a must-start because he's Eli Manning and he always has the potential for big yardage, but it's a worrying trend, to be sure.
