Broncos | Peyton Manning to play less in 2015?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:20:47 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may not play as much as usual next season in order to give him more rest. Head coach Gary Kubiak has indicated that he will tailor the offense to benefit Manning, including running the ball more. Subsequently, QB Brock Osweiler could see more playing time if Manning's playing time is adjusted. Kubiak said he's impressed with how excited Osweiler is and knows he wants to play a part in the Broncos' offense. Kubiak said Osweiler's opportunity to play will come at some point. "I always tell young players nobody knows if you're taking care of your business until you're thrown in the fire."

Fantasy Tip: Manning has been an elite fantasy quarterback almost his entire career and he should still be considered as such. That being said, at age 39, he may not offer as much value as he has in previous seasons, especially with a new offense that will probably see the Broncos run the ball more often. Again, Manning should still be considered a top-tier fantasy quarterback as long as he's healthy.

Broncos | Kubiak not worried about Peyton Manning

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 11:43:56 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning needing extra time this offseason to weigh his future is a non-issue, according to new head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak also said he's not worried about how Manning will fit into his offense. "I'd pick Peyton Manning for any offense, I mean, we're going to go do what he does best," Kubiak said. "We're not going to go roll out if that's not something that's a strength of our team. We're going to do what he does best."

Fantasy Tip: Kubiak is intent on not forcing anything on Manning in their first season together. Kubiak's typicaly offenses include plenty of bootleg rollouts, which would be tough for the immobile Manning to pull off. However, the offense will be tailored to Manning's strengths, so fantasy owners shouldn't be all that worried. Manning should be able to produce plenty of QB1 games again in 2015, although he may not be able to replicate the big numbers he put up in 2013 and 2014.

Broncos | Elway not worried about Peyton Manning

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 11:31:52 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is more of an immobile, shotgun-positioned quarterback at his age, but general manager John Elway is unconcerned with how he'll fit into new head coach Gary Kubiak's and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's plans. "Gary Kubiak's one of the easiest guys to get along with," Elway said. "He's very smart. Plus, Rico is a very smart coach. (Gregg) Knapp is the same (quarterbacks) coach. They're going to get along fine. They'll get a feel for it. We're going to put in what Peyton likes to do offensively with what Gary has always done."

Fantasy Tip: Heading into his age-39 season, it's fair to wonder how much No. 18 has left in his right arm, especially while having to pick up a new system. Still, we expect Manning to post QB1-worthy numbers most weeks, and an improved ground game may make him more efficient at times.

Broncos | Can Peyton Manning play full season?

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 15:23:31 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning would be the second quarterback ever (Brett Favre) to play all 16 games in a season he began at age 39 or older. Manning turns 39 later this month.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Manning is officially returning to Denver, he remains a top-tier quarterback in 2015 drafts, even with TE Julius Thomas likely not returning.

Broncos | Peyton Manning has incentives

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:37:28 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, who restructured his contract to take a $4 million pay cut from $19 million to $15 million in 2015, will have a chance to earn the $4 million back in incentives. He can make $2 million each for AFC Championship and Super Bowl wins.

Fantasy Tip: Now that it's official that Manning will return in 2015, the biggest question becomes how productive can he be in a new offensive scheme under a new head coach and offensive coordinator? It remains to be seen, but the 39-year-old should at least serve as a midrange QB1 for fantasy football owners.

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:32:44 -0800

Fantasy Tip: While Manning had a disappointing season in 2014, he is still one of the most consistent options there is at quarterback. He should be considered a top-5 quarterback heading into 2015 drafts.

Broncos | Peyton Manning contract won't affect FA

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 15:40:40 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's new contract, in which he will take a $4 million pay cut, will not impact the team's approach during free agency.

Fantasy Tip: While Manning wasn't his normal self in the latter part of the 2014 season, he's still one of the most consistent quarterbacks both in real life and in fantasy football. He should be considered at least a top-five quarterback heading into 2015 drafts.

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 15:39:08 -0800

Fantasy Tip: If/when Manning passes his physical he will officially be returning to the Broncos. While his 2014 season was relatively disappointing, he still remains a top-tier fantasy quarterback option for the 2015 season.

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 12:19:32 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Manning will still have the likes of Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and possibly Wes Welker, even if Julius Thomas doesn't return. While he may not be considered the top quarterback option in 2015, he's still a top tier fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to have deal revised?

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 18:12:17 -0800

The Denver Broncos and representatives for QB Peyton Manning are working on revising the veteran's contract, according to multiple league sources. He is scheduled to draw a $19 million salary in 2015 and 2016. Manning has informed the team he intends to keep playing, and the Broncos did not formally interview any quarterbacks at the NFL Combine last week.

Fantasy Tip: Manning started out like a ball of fire last season, but he struggled down the stretch a bit. Still, he should be considered a Top 10 fantasy option at his position heading into 2015. If he his skills have diminished somewhat, he is still better than a third of the other starting quarterbacks in the NFL.
