Broncos | No deadline for Peyton Manning

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 21:56:42 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has "no deadline" for making a retirement decision, general manager John Elway said Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Manning said he plans to take a few weeks to decide his status for 2016, and most feel he is likely to call it a career and go out on top. He could return, but it might not be with the Broncos in 2016 due to a huge salary cap hit. Either way, Manning will be more of a QB2 and bye-week replacement rather than a reliable starter if he comes back.

Broncos | Peyton Manning decision important

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 11:20:43 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning still has one year remaining on the contract he signed in 2012. His $19 million base salary becomes guaranteed on March 9, and the deal counts $21.5 million against Denver's salary cap. The Broncos' available cap space will be impacted greatly by his decision.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is expected by many to retire, or at least not play with the Broncos next year, but he has about a month before the new league year begins. If Manning chooses to return to football, he should no longer be viewed as a QB1.

Broncos | Similarities between Elway, Manning

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 13:31:39 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and general manager John Elway were both drafted first overall by the Baltimore Colts/Indianapolis Colts and they both won 14 playoff games and two Super Bowls.

Fantasy Tip: They're the two oldest quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl, too. Manning is expected to retire after winning Super Bowl last night, but him returning to football shouldn't be completely ruled out. If Manning does retire, then Brock Osweiler would likely be re-signed and become starter for the Broncos. He wouldn't be in QB1 territory just yet, though.

Broncos | Peyton Manning not rushing decision

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 09:48:13 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will not rush to make a decision about retirement after winning Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers, but he said "I'll be at peace, whichever way it goes." Manning's mother, Olivia, said she would like Peyton to retire and go out on top.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a shock to us all if Manning decided to come back after winning his second Super Bowl ring. He really has nothing left to prove. If he does return, it's unlikely to be with the Broncos, making life even more difficult for him. He'd be a really shaky fantasy backup if he's back in 2016.

Broncos | Peyton Manning quiet in Super Bowl win

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 20:15:36 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and an interception in a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Denver defense carried the night, and while Manning wouldn't reveal his future plans, it is hard to see him being a starting-caliber fantasy quarterback in 2016 if he decides to play another year.

Broncos | Big bonus for Peyton Manning?

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 12:12:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will receive a $2 million bonus if the Broncos win the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: It's not abnormal for players, particularly quarterbacks, and coaches to receive sizable monetary bonuses for postseason and Super Bowl wins. The bonus would make for a nice addition to Manning's retirement fund, if he does indeed retire. Again, if Manning retires, Brock Osweiler will undoubtedly start, but that doesn't mean he should immediately be viewed as a QB1.

Broncos | Peyton Manning making history

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 11:57:11 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be the first quarterback ever to start multiple Super Bowls for different teams.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is also the only quarterback to ever play in four different Super Bowls with four different head coaches. And while Manning did have an off season, he has shown up in the postseason. If this is Manning's last rodeo, then Brock Osweiler will start for Denver next season, but don't consider him a starting fantasy quarterback right away.

Broncos | Peyton Manning coming back?

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 18:26:03 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's former coach and current Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator, Clyde Christensen, isn't "buying" the idea that the Super Bowl will be Manning's last game. "I know how much he loves doing what he does," Christensen said. "He sometimes forgets and still gives me projects and forgets that he has a coach there. I still get a glimpse of how much this guy enjoys football like he does, enjoys the quarterback position like he does and I wouldn't count on him bowing out too early."

Fantasy Tip: Manning's future remains up in the air, but if he does come back, his last couple of seasons suggest that he nothing more than a backup for fantasy purposes.

Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels probable

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:30:24 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full all week and are probable to face the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's biggest challenge is to not turn the ball over against a very aggressive Panthers defense. If Denver needs to rely on Manning to win the game with his arm, they might be in serious trouble. Daniels could once again be an X-factor like he was in the AFC Championship, but another two-TD performance won't be in the cards.

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.
