Daniel Jones is listed as doubtful for the New York Giants' Week 14 "Monday Night Football" game with the Philadelphia Eagles, something that opens the door for Eli Manning to return as the team's starting quarterback – at least for one game.

With Philadelphia in the middle of the pack when it comes to giving up fantasy points to opposing QBs, Manning is nothing more than a 2QB-league streaming play this week.

Manning averaged 278.0 passing yards per game across his two starts this season, but he only three two touchdowns to go along with two interceptions.

That being said, he draws a decent matchup against an Eagles' defense that has been average against the pass, ranking No. 15 in Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics. Manning should also benefit from having his full complement of weapons, as it looks like Evan Engram will be able to suit up in Week 14.

While Manning isn't a recommended fantasy option, as he doesn't crack the top 12 in our Week 14 fantasy football rankings, he could hold some value as a streaming option, specifically in two-quarterback leagues.
