Broncos | Peyton Manning struggles over middle

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 14:24:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw 168 passes inside the numbers this season and was intercepted 10 times, resulting in a league-high 5.95% interception rate on such throws. The interception percentage ranks as the sixth-worst mark over the last 10 seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Making matters worse for Manning in Super Bowl 50 is a Carolina Panthers defense that recorded a league-high 16 interceptions on middle-of-the-field throws - the sixth-best total by a team over the last 10 seasons. The Broncos will likely need the running game and defense to hold up their end of the bargain in order to get Manning a second ring in what could be his final NFL game.

Broncos | Peyton Manning changing teams?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 21:14:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning knows he likely won't be back with the Broncos if he decides to play in 2016, according to Archie Manning.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Manning will retire after the Super Bowl, but if he does end up elsewhere next year, it is hard to see him being any more than a low-end QB1 based on his performance the last couple of seasons.

Broncos | Peyton Manning looking good

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 17:46:37 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is looking as good as he has all season and threw several deep passes during practice Thursday, Feb. 4, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Manning has played better during the playoffs than he did during the regular season but will be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense in Super Bowl 50. He should have several chances to make plays during the game but probably will not be able to post big numbers.

Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels practice

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 16:31:34 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) once again practiced in full Thursday, Feb. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Manning won't put up big numbers against the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl, but if he avoids costly turnovers he'll give Denver a good shot at winning. Daniels will be needed in order to keep Carolina's linebackers honest, but don't expect another two-touchdown performance like in the AFC Championship.

Broncos | Arm not an issue for Peyton Manning

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 12:06:25 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has drawn much criticism for his declining arm strength, but at least one teammate doesn't see it that way. WR Emmanuel Sanders believes most of Manning's issues have been a result of the foot injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the season. "It wasn't his arm. It was just his foot. Peyton's arm has always been good to me, in my eyes. He's never had a really, really strong arm. He's always been the guy that before you come out of your breaks, the ball is there," Sanders said.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's completion percentage has actually dipped from 59.8% in the regular season to 55.1 in the playoffs, but he has avoided the interceptions that dogged him throughout the first four months of the season. Another mistake-free game would go a long way in helping the Broncos upset the Carolina Panthers in what could be his final game in Super Bowl 50.

Broncos | Manning, Owen Daniels fully practice

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 16:35:31 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) were full participants in practice Wednesday, Feb. 3.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the last meaningful game for both Manning and Daniels. The two veterans hooked up for the only two Broncos touchdowns in the AFC Championship a week and a half ago, but don't expect the same results against the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl. As for next season, much hinges on if Manning stays or retires, but you can probably leave Daniels on your league's waiver wire.

Broncos | Peyton Manning has struggled deep

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 11:01:50 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning ranked 33rd out of 35 quarterbacks this year with 27.5% accuracy on his passes that traveled 20 yards or more downfield, according to Pro Football Focus.

Fantasy Tip: It's no secret that the 39-year-old Manning doesn't have the arm strength he once did. The Carolina Panthers weakness is in their secondary, but can Manning exploit it if they suffocate the short throws? It remains to be seen, but either way it seems unlikely that No. 18 will put up big numbers on this defense.

Broncos | Peyton Manning has time for decision

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 09:10:47 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be given plenty of time to make a decision on his future following Super Bowl 50, according to general manager John Elway. "He's got plenty of time, whatever time he needs. I think it's never going to be a quick decision. You don't want it to be. It's one that's going to change his life ... and it's always a hard decision," Elway said, "so we'll give him plenty of time."

Fantasy Tip: It's widely believed that this will indeed be Manning's final rodeo, win or lose. So it'd be a pretty big surprise if he returned for one more year in 2016, and that'd likely come in another uniform, too. Manning would be nothing more than a risky fantasy backup if he comes back for one more run.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to need hip replacement

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 09:05:21 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (hip) said he's been told he'll need a hip replacement surgery "down the road" and that he'll try to handle any potential issues with his neck and back in the future.

Fantasy Tip: The 39-year-old future Hall of Fame quarterback has suffered through multiple injuries the last year and a half, and Sunday's big game is likely to be his last. If he does stick around for one more year, no fantasy owner will want to take the risk on Manning as anything more than a backup QB.

Rams | Peyton Manning drawing Rams interest

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 07:40:27 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Rams if he decides to play in 2016. The Rams have had internal discussions about pursuing Manning if he opts to play next season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is expected to hang it up after the Super Bowl. If he decides to return in 2016, Manning is a shaky, low-end QB1 in fantasy.
