If you’re hovering around .500 in your league, never fear as we’re only one-quarter through the season. If you’re sitting at 0-4, don’t lose hope just yet as there is still time to put together a miraculous run in your league. To do that, take a look at our weekly Start ’em or Sit ’em rankings to get a leg up on the rest of your league.

Start ‘Em: Eli Manning – QB|Giants (vs. Cleveland Browns)

The younger Manning brother seems to not be on a lot of people’s radar at the moment and that’s one of the more insane things to have happened in fantasy football this year. And I’m not saying this because Manning’s stats are inflated from his 500 yard game against the Buccaneers, but Manning has been solid all season long even when his supporting cast has been hurt. The Eagles allowed 22 points to Manning and that was without Hakeem Nicks. This week Manning gets a horrible Browns defense that has been torched by opposing quarterbacks from Michael Vick to Andy Dalton. Manning is an All-Pro quarterback and even with an injured cast, he should have the best week a quarterback has had this year against the Browns.
