Fantasy Football: Leave Manning on your bench?

For fantasy football owners this season, there’s one good Manning brother and one bad Manning brother.

And he’s been very, very bad.

Eli Manning has thrown seven interceptions already to only five touchdown passes, and our fantasy football expert Mike Baldwin says that this week you need to sit the Giants quarterback. And it’s not just because of all those interceptions.

As Mike points out, the Giants are playing the Panthers, who have a pretty good defense, but even more than that, the Giants have said that they want to establish a better run game. With Manning in a slump, this might be a week where they rely heavily on David Wilson, Brandon Jacobs and Co.

By the way, Mike isn’t advocating that you trade Manning. Just sit him for a bit and see if he can stop throwing the ball to the other team.
