Barkley and His Two Time Super Bowl MVP Quarterback

Two time Super Bowl MVP, 4 time Pro Bowler, but regressing. I am one of the most optimistic Eli fans you will meet, but it is true that he is not the same Eli he was 5 or 6 years ago. His big brother was able to get by a poor season with the help of his teammates, and Eli may want to do so also. I assume check down passes to Barkley will be extremely frequent. Since his peak of 8.4 YPA in 2011, Manning has slowly decreased in yards per attempt since then, now averaging 6.1 yards per attempt. Not only this, but the Giants haven’t been able to establish a run game for Eli for years, and will now have that possibility. He will still air the ball out often simply because of the talent of his receiving corps, but look for Eli to rely on the check down pass a lot this season, now that he has a star to throw it to. This means humongous production for Barkley this season, especially in PPR leagues.
