Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said QB Peyton Manning is a "better leader" than Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. "This is the first time that I had a quarterback that stays every single day after practice, no matter what his accolades," Sanders said. "From NFL MVP, Super Bowl rings. He keeps guys like me and (Cody) Latimer after practice and we're out there 15, 20 minutes. And he's not one of those guys you gotta go chase down, he's gonna be right at the same spot ready to work, every single day."
Fantasy Tip: Sanders is set to be the No. 3 receiver for the Broncos this season, and the extra work he is putting in with Manning should help him hit the ground running when the season begins. He is worth drafting in the middle rounds as a WR3 in fantasy leagues.

The Denver Broncos will still be a passing team but want to have a more efficient running game since they will be facing more defensive subpackages during games. "We're always going to try to get the best look, to do the best thing in each situation for the offense to be successful," offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "The more things we can do, the more options we have. We want to be able to execute the plays we want in those situations. If that's throwing, that's throwing the ball, if it's running, then we want that available, too." A better running game will also help QB Peyton Manning's play-action passing.
Fantasy Tip: Montee Ball is entering this upcoming season as the starter and should have space to run with opponents worrying about the teams running game. Ball should be a starter in every league and likely will be selected in the first two or three rounds.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning ranked first in the NFL last year in "catchable" passes, according to Stats Inc. He also ranked above the league average in terms of completion percentage on both short and deep throw to all areas of the field.
Fantasy Tip: While his arm strength has been questioned in recent years, the fact that his accuracy remains elite should help ensure that Manning continues to put up huge offensive numbers.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning isn't going into the 2014 season treating it any differently than he has previous seasons, according to TE Julius Thomas. "I don't think we have any additional pressure because of Peyton's age. He is going to come out here and he is going to expect the best of us day in and day out, and it is up to us all to live up to that," Thomas said.
Fantasy Tip: Manning won't match his record-setting numbers from 2013, but Denver's offense is still among the most potent in the league, despite losing a few weapons. You'll have to pay a hefty price for his services this year as likely the first QB off the board.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was carrying around a football covered in green Lycra during organized team activities Wednesday, May 28. Manning declined to disclose the details about why he was using the green football, but it's believed that he's using the ball to emphasis hanging onto the football. The Broncos fumbled 27 times last year and lost 16 of them, which was more than any other squad. Manning himself lost six fumbles, which was the most in his career.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (neck) said he's still not all the way back to 100 percent after his 2011 neck surgery. "I'm not 100 percent compared to what I was before my surgery, but I have made strides each season and this year felt a lot better than the year before," Manning said. "But these nerves just go at their own pace. It's not like it's going to have this immediate recovery one day." Manning said it took time and repetition to get back to where he could control his passes. "It was weak and I lost awareness of my arm in space, a proprioception issue," Manning said. "So I just used to sit in front of a mirror and go through my throwing motions, trying to get the feel back the way I'd always thrown before. I was trying to throw to some receivers, so I would throw to you and the ball would go (points finger) there. That was very scary."

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (neck) was fully cleared for the 2014 season by a doctor after having his neck examined Monday, March 3.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (neck) will visit with doctors in Denver next week to re-evaluate his neck fusion. "He should be fine," general manager John Elway said.
Fantasy Tip: Nothing out of the ordinary is expected to be found during Manning's checkup. Expect him to be one of the first QBs off the board early in this year's fantasy drafts. Regression should be factored in, obviously, but barring injury, he should be a safe QB1 option.
Wed, 19 Feb 2014 13:06:37 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said if you try to force picking a quarterback at a certain point in a draft, you can make a mistake. "In today's day and age, if you can't get Peyton Manning or Matt Ryan, and they might not be available for the next 10 or 15 years, then you have to adapt and build the roster and do what's best for the organization," Caldwell said. "And if a quarterback presents itself later in the draft, you take and develop him. Having a franchise guy makes the world a lot easier, though. It can erase a lot of mistakes you make. But if you force it, you can screw it up. I don't know if we're going to find that guy, but I hope we do."
