News: Over the Giants' last two games, Manning's gotten rid of the ball in a blistering two seconds per snap, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. Impact: According to Pro Football Focus, Manning has held the ball for less time than anyone other than Peyton Manning so far this season, and over the last two games, Eli's even faster than his brother. Combined with improved offensive line play, he's rarely been under pressure the last two games. He should have another good matchup at home this week against the Falcons.(RotoWire, )

News: Manning turned in his first 300-yard effort of the season Thursday with four TD passes and one on the ground, shockingly. Impact: Manning also had his fifth interception on a fluky play that could have been ruled a TD. His completion percentage and passer ratings are career bests at 66.9 and 93.6, respectively, as he looks revitalized under Ben McAdoo's new offensive scheme. Even with this success, he could be a risky fantasy play until further notice though his nine TD passes are half of what he produced in a dismal 2013 for fantasy owners.(STATS, 4:11pm)

News: Manning completed 28-of-39 passes for 300 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 45-14 win over the Redskins. His only carry was a one-yard touchdown scramble. Impact: Manning had the New York offense humming for a second straight week, as even the interception would have been a Big Blue touchdown, if not for a fantastic play by Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, who used his helmet to dislodge the ball from WR Reuben Randle's hands in the end zone. While Washington's porous pass defense certainly played a part in the success, both Manning and the New York offensive line look much improved from last season. Also helping matters, tight end Larry Donnell has been a revelation, with 25 receptions and four touchdowns through four weeks. Manning is still only a middle-of-the-pack option among the 32 starting quarterbacks, but he should fare well in a Week 5 home game against the Falcons.(RotoWire, )

News: Manning was an efficient 21 of 28 for two touchdowns and 234 yards in Sunday's win over Houston. Impact: Manning has improved each week through the first three games and any remaining brave fantasy owners will be happy to not see an interception from him for the first time this season.(STATS, 5:29pm)

News: Manning completed 21-of-28 passes for 234 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers Sunday against the Texans. Impact: Manning was very efficient Sunday, connecting with five different receivers in a game that he simply had to manage thanks to the 34-carry, 176-yard, one-touchdown performance from running back Rashad Jennings. The drops that plagued many of his receivers in Week 2 seemed to go away Sunday, as Victor Cruz led the way catching five passes on six targets for 107 yards and a touchdown. However, Manning may be asked to do even more in Week 4 on Thursday against the Redskins, who held the Eagles to 54 rushing yards in Week 3 but allowed 325 passing yards and three touchdowns through the air.(RotoWire, )

News: Manning showed signs of life in Sunday's loss to the Cards. Impact: Manning was 26 of 39 for 277 yards, two scores and two interceptions with a five-yard rush. He wasn't helped by five drops but faces a tough defense next week in Houston so he could get sacked a boatload of times.(STATS, 11:34pm)
