ADP Trends – Quarterbacks

Looking past the first seven options on the list below, there is one quarterback who continues to see little love for the success he’s posted in his career, over the rest of the pack.
Why Not Eli Manning?
Matt Ryan looks comfortable and productive in preseason action and Michael Vick his begin pumped up for a bounce back year, in spite of a thumb injury to his throwing hand. You want them, that’s fine, I can understand.
It’s the two names just above Eli that really get my attention in these recent ADP trends.
After that we have Tony Romo with a concerning offensive line and veterans Miles Austin and Jason Witten down for who knows how long. Romo hasn’t proven to be a durable quarterback in recent years, so the fact that his offensive line has a ways to go is all the more problematic.
Then you have Eli’s brother Peyton Manning. No one can deny Peyton has been a great fantasy quarterback over his career, but he’s not likely to be the same guy, at least early on.
Outside of Brandon Stokley and Jacob Tamme, Peyton will a new crew he’s working with, and while he should get things hashed out in the by mid-season, this offense will go through some growing pains.
Eli on the other hand has Hakeem Nicks back, Victor Cruz and a talented group of receivers after that on the depth chart. The Giants will still struggle on defense against the pass, especially vs respectable passing offenses.
Ahmad Bradshaw could go down at any time with a foot problem he chose to avoid having surgery on, opting to go with an injection. Even ultra talented rookie running back David Wilson is having some problems with his playbook and is working behind D.J. Ware on the depth chart.
Eli has the weapons and has proven his worth with his stats from recent seasons that he should go off the board after Ryan, if not a little higher.
Finally, unlike Romo, Vick and Peyton, Eli is a durable quarterback that rarely misses time in his career.
