Over his first two games against the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos, Manning threw a league-high seven interceptions. His five touchdowns and 812 passing yards were enough to make up for his turnovers just a bit, but his game against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 should be the nail in the coffin for fantasy owners.
Manning tossed for just 119 yards and another interception against Carolina. Owners who started Manning this week have received terrible production from him, and owners looking for him to produce moving forward need to be wary of his inconsistencies.
If there aren't any other quarterbacks available, then Manning obviously has to be your man at quarterback. He has the potential to break out and have huge games given his receiving options, but his lack of a running game this season has really hampered his production.
He has forced more passes than usual this season, resulting in those eight interceptions. Until a running game is established, Manning will not be a No. 1 option like he had been in seasons past.
Stashing him is the best option if you can afford to do so.
