WR Mario Manningham returns to Giants

Mario Manningham @Manningham49ers was drafted by the Giants and played for them from 2008-11. He was serviceable if not outstanding during his time in New York. His best numbers came in 2010, when he caught 60 passes for 944 yards and nine touchdowns.
But the 2011 postseason -- and more specifically, one unbelievable catch down the sideline late in Super Bowl XLVI -- made Manningham some money. He signed a two-year deal worth more than $7 million less than two months later with the 49ers. However, Manningham's two years with them were largely forgettable and headlined by a devastating knee injury in December 2012 that caused him to miss most of the 2013 season.
So, with his contract up again, Manningham is heading back to where he started. The Giants brought Manningham back on a one-year deal Tuesday, according to Pro Football Talk.

Fantasy Analysis:

I look at this signing similar to the Patriots' inking of Brandon LaFell: A veteran brought in for depth purposes. The Giants' top three WRs are Victor Cruz @TeamVic, Rueben Randle @RuebenRandle, Jerrel Jernigan @JJernigan12. Or at least, that's who the team hopes are their top three, given that the young guys continue to develop. Manningham is a player head coach Tom Coughlin is familiar with, even if Manningham isn't familiar with the Giants' new offense. He'll vie to be New York No. 4 wideout and has microscopic fantasy value.
