Eli Manning had a miserable outing against the Denver Broncos this past week.
Playing from behind forced Manning to throw the ball 49 times. He completed just 28 passes for 362 yards and one touchdown.
What hurt his fantasy numbers most were the four interceptions he threw.
Without a run game to rely on thus far, defenses have been able to sit back and cherry pick Manning's passes. At times, receivers were seeing triple coverage from the Broncos' secondary.
With the weapons around him, though, Manning has all the tools to succeed this season.
Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle and Brandon Meyers have all shown their capability to catch the football this season, and if the Giants can put together some semblance of a running game, Manning should have an easier time getting them the football.
Manning's seven interceptions are a cause for concern, but not outright panic.
If you discount the turnovers, it is easy to see how Manning's five touchdowns and 812 yards passing can provide fantasy owners with a solid starter at quarterback.
With a favorable matchup against a Carolina secondary that has allowed an average of 293.5 passing yards this season, Manning should see a return to form that has made him a solid fantasy starter in the past.
