Broncos | Peyton Manning leaves mark on NFL

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 10:38:27 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning currently holds 11 all-time records for quarterbacks, including most career passing yards (71,940), most career passing touchdowns (539), most single-season passing yards (5,477), most single-season passing touchdowns (55) and most wins (200 total).

Fantasy Tip: Manning rewrote the record books during his 17-year career with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. His impact will be lasting, but the Broncos are already on to their next stage, of which Brock Osweiler is at the forefront. Denver has already offered him a deal, but he could choose to leave for more money, so stay tuned.

Broncos | Peyton Manning set to annouce retirement

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 06:41:35 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will announce his retirement Monday, March 7, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It was the expected career choice, and Manning will retire with a record five MVP awards and two Super Bowl titles. Brock Osweiler projects to take over the offense. He is a middling No. 2 quarterback in 2-QB formats and a backup with upside in traditional formats. Through his seven starts in 2015, Osweiler had a 62.2 completion percentage with nine touchdowns. He'll need to show more before being trusted as anything more than a matchup play in single-QB leagues.

Texans | Could Peyton Manning join Texans?

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 17:00:52 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning could be signed by the Houston Texans as a bridge quarterback until the Texans are comfortable with their next future quarterback, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.

Fantasy Tip: If this were to come to fruition, Manning would only sign a one- or two-year deal, but he may not want to sign with a team that could still be a few years away from Super Bowl contention. The more plausible outcome is that Manning retires on top, because he's no longer a top NFL quarterback or fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | No decision on Peyton Manning

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 13:51:57 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has not decided whether to retire yet, and the Broncos have not told him they'll cut him if he chooses not to retire. Denver will allow him to decide his future and take it from there.

Fantasy Tip: It is widely expected that Manning will hang up his cleats, but it's not a foregone conclusion. If he doesn't retire, it's not likely that he'll come back to the Broncos either. Nevertheless, don't draft him as your starting fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Peyton Manning undecided

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 09:51:48 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning remains undecided on whether he will retire this offseason. "To tell you the truth, I know that Peyton has not decided," Manning's agent, Tom Condon, said. The Broncos continue to say they'll give him all the time he needs to make a decision, but they will need to trade or release him if he doesn't let them know within the next six days. Condon thinks other teams will be interested in Manning if he wants to keep playing.

Fantasy Tip: It was widely believed that Manning would retire after winning Super Bowl 50. But now it looks like he could return, but that likely won't be with Denver. Injuries have really slowed No. 18 down the last two seasons, and his arm strength is a big question mark. He'd be a fringe QB1 in 2016 if he returns, at best.

Broncos | Peyton Manning finding it hard to quit

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 10:35:55 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is finding his decision on whether to retire harder than expected. His agent, Tom Condon, said Manning told him that he still likes to play, and he still enjoys weekly preparation and practice before games. "It's still there," Manning said. "To me, you can't play football, and you can't play quarterback in the NFL unless you love it. And if you love it, you have to love the preparation, you have to love the April and May workouts."

Fantasy Tip: Manning will need more time to make a decision, and the Broncos will likely agree to part ways with him if he hasn't made a decision by the time free agency begins March 9. If Manning comes back for another season, he'll be an unattractive low-end QB1 in a best-case scenario.

Broncos | Peyton Manning wants to keep playing

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 09:12:14 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning reportedly wants to continue playing, and he's exploring his options.

Fantasy Tip: Manning would be a low-end QB1 right now as physically compromised as he looked in 2015.

Broncos | No Peyton Manning decision this week

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 16:30:51 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is not expected to make a decision on his playing future this week, and the decision will go right up to March 9, according to sources. Manning's $19 million salary for next season would become guaranteed March 9 if he decides to continue playing.

Fantasy Tip: Manning has been taking his time in making a decision, but everyone should know his decision at some point next week. It is not known who Manning will play for next season if he decides to continue his playing career, but he probably would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
