Should We Give Eli Another Chance?
This is for my family, fantasy football competitors all. We need a break from all the not-so-fun news, anyway.
Fantasy Football: Week 12 Matchup Breakdown

Eli Manning, we just can’t quit you.
Despite calling off our fantasy relationship with the consistently frustrating Manning after Week 10, we’ve decided to give him one more chance, because everyone deserves a second chance, or sometimes seven.
Manning opened the 2013 N.F.L. season with a bang, with 450 passing yards and 4 touchdowns against the rival Dallas Cowboys. He has averaged just 11 fantasy points per game since. But he is quietly coming off his best game since the opener (71.4 completion percentage, 279 yards and a touchdown versus Green Bay), and the Cowboys have allowed 261 standard fantasy points through the air this year, the most in fantasy football.
In a crucial game for the red-hot Giants, we expect Manning, who has thrown just two interceptions in his last four games, to come through, as he often has against the Cowboys.
