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.

Broncos | Peyton Manning still undecided

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 16:17:20 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning remains undecided on whether he'll return for the 2015 season, according to general manager John Elway. Elway met with Manning a week ago, and Manning expressed that he feels fine physically. Everyone is expecting Manning to return, but there hasn't been a definitive announcement from Manning himself.

Fantasy Tip: All signs so far point to Manning returning, minus a verbal confirmation from his own mouth. Assuming he returns, he should have most of his offensive weapons back. However, he'll be running a slightly different offensive system under Gary Kubiak. We believe that Manning should continue to be serviceable at least as a midrange QB1 in one more season.

Broncos | Peyton Manning fits well into system

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 19:01:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has not decided if he will return in 2015 or not. However, he fits well into the offensive system of new head coach Gary Kubiak. He likes the stretch rushing system that features zone blocking and one-cut running. And he likes play-action passes off that running system, and Manning excels as a play-action ball handler.

Fantasy Tip: Manning has a large contract and cap number, and he is getting a little long in the tooth, but he can still be an effective fantasy option despite some decreasing skills. If he comes back, and it is expected, he remains a Top 10 fantasy option at his position.

Broncos | Peyton Manning expected back by HC

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 16:23:20 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is expected to return this season by head coach Gary Kubiak. While Manning hasn't officially made a decision, he has told the team that he feels good enough to play in 2015. Kubiak said he doesn't think there's any hold up with Manning's decision and that Manning and general manager John Elway are working through the process.

Fantasy Tip: Most signs point towards Manning returning this season. The Broncos could rely more on RB C.J. Anderson and the running game next year, but Manning is still comfortably in QB1 territory, assuming he comes back.

Broncos | Questions still surround Peyton Manning

Sat, 14 Feb 2015 11:00:50 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning still has questions lingering in light of the fact that he wants to return in 2015. Among those questions include if he'll run head coach Gary Kubiak's offense and if he'll take a pay cut, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that if Manning plays and stays healthy he's still good enough to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season.

Broncos | Peyton Manning assures coaches he'll return

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 15:07:13 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has assured team officials, including general manager John Elway, that he's physically and mentally ready to return for another season, according to league and team sources. Manning had a comprehensive evaluation from performance manager and trainer Mackie Shilstone the past couple of weeks in New Orleans. Shilstone gave Manning a strong assessment based on workouts and tests. The quadriceps injury that Manning dealt with late last year is fully healed.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his age and declining physical abilities, Manning is likely to continue producing QB1 numbers in this offense, at least on a matchup basis. If you decide to draft him in this year's fantasy football drafts, it'd be wise to pair him with a strong backup, though.

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 05:50:13 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may be in talks to restructure his contract and help the team keep its key free agents, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is likely to return next season and should be in that top 4-7 range at the position come draft day.

Broncos | Peyton Manning meets with John Elway

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 18:23:59 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning met with general manager John Elway Thursday, Feb. 12, but was not ready to make an announcement on whether he will play in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Manning has averaged 43.7 touchdowns in three years with the Broncos, and with a strained quadriceps likely playing a role in his late-season slide, he should still be viewed as one of the top fantasy quarterbacks if he decides to return.

Broncos | Peyton Manning's decision can wait

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:54:15 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is being given all the time he needs to make a decision on whether he'll play in 2015, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Manning has already begun training in New Orleans and plans to meet with general manager John Elway and others before making his decision.

Fantasy Tip: If Manning has already started training, it sounds like he'll want to return for the 2015 season. If/when he does, he'll still be a top-tier fantasy quarterback despite his struggles later on last season.
