FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Eli Manning will miss all of the Giants' spring workouts while recovering from left ankle surgery.

This was to be expected given the nature and timing of Manning's surgery. He is expected back in time for preseason games and there haven't been any reports about him potentially missing the start of the season, so there shouldn't be any concerns on that front. Eli has had some difficulties over the last two seasons, so between that and the surgery, his draft value will likely decline. While relying on him would be a risk, he could also be a serious steal if he falls too far in drafts.ANALYST: Howard Bender
