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.

Broncos | Peyton Manning will play in 2015

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

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning officially passed his physical and will return for the 2015 season.

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.

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.

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.
