Broncos | Peyton Manning to rely on run game?

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:21:52 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will need to rely on the run game in 2015, according to general manager John Elway Thursday, July 30. "What I can say, late in my career, that was my best friend, the running game. And I think that running game will be Peyton's best friend also," said Elway.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos are expected to use a more balanced offense under head coach Gary Kubiak's system. With Manning expected to throw less, his fantasy value will take a slight hit, but he should still finish near the top-five quarterbacks.

Broncos | Peyton Manning dealing with changes

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:46:11 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has been forced to deal with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, less practice time and more rest during offseason practices, new offensive linemen, a new starting tight end in TE Owen Daniels and not being able to practice with star WR Demaryius Thomas yet.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's work ethic and his desire to practice with teammates have been well known throughout his career, so it's easy to see how this offseason may be a struggle for him. Manning and the Broncos still have a couple months to practice together and become more used to each other and to new head coach Gary Kubiak and new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. The two biggest concerns may be not practicing with Thomas and the new-look offensive line, specifically left tackle. That being said, as long as Manning can stay healthy, he should still be a top-end QB1.

Texans | Houston had Peyton Manning talks

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 08:49:43 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was the subject of preliminary trade discussions with the Houston Texans, according to a source. The talks occurred before Manning restructured his deal and the Texans signed QB Brian Hoyer. If the Texans were to acquire Manning they would have had to restructure Manning's deal and SportsRadio 610's source says the money in Houston would not have been as high as the $15 million Manning got from the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: These types of talks probably take place all the time, but it's an indication that Manning is no longer among the handful of players that are untouchable. Manning is probably at the last rung of the elite QB tier in fantasy and should remain in the top five taken at the position.

Broncos | Peyton Manning trade rumors false

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 04:46:18 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was not the subject of talks that had him headed for the Houston Texans. Reports suggested some in the Broncos organization wanted to jumpstart QB Brock Osweiler and start the rebuilding process.

Fantasy Tip: This rumor was denied all the way to the top of the Broncos organization, including by John Elway himself. Manning will stay a Bronco for this season, and his 4,727 yards and 39 passing touchdowns suggest he will be a strong QB1 candidate and one of the first signal-callers off the board. Still, keep an eye out for injuries, as he was hampered by them late in the year.

Broncos | Peyton Manning not happy

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 20:23:48 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is upset that WR Demaryius Thomas doesn't have a new deal and isn't practicing with the team, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Although the extra practice reps certainly wouldn't hurt, Thomas will be back on the field eventually. Meanwhile, the lost time won't change the fact that Thomas is a WR1 and Manning is a QB1 in all formats.

Broncos | Peyton Manning limited in OTAs

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 21:12:44 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and other veterans have accepted a lighter load during organized team activities (OTAs), as younger and inexperienced players are seeing more spring practice reps. Head coach Gary Kubiak is trying to keep his veterans fresh and healthy for training camp in late July.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is 39, and the team certainly knows what he can do at this point. He had some nagging injuries down the stretch in 2014, so any extra rest he can get now might help him in December and into January.

Broncos | Peyton Manning looking good

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 10:57:41 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning looked good when working out with teammates at Duke University this offseason and did not show any problems with the quadriceps injury he suffered during the 2014 season, according to Duke head coach David Cutcliffe. "I thought he looked really healthy. We had talked about nutrition, about sleep, about recovery. He's really so, so smart. So brilliant and so disciplined. But there's another level, always. I thought he looked really fit. I thought his core was great. I watched him train inside, and he looks good and he's strong where he needs to be strong, and he didn't show anything at all from the quad. And we talked a lot about flexibility," Cutcliffe said.

Fantasy Tip: Manning decided to come back for another season and looks to be prepared for the start of training camp and the regular season. He will have most of his receiving options back this season but will be running an offense that likes to run the ball more often. Manning should still be a starting option in fantasy leagues this season.

Broncos | Peyton Manning sitting out

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 10:54:06 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is not participating in organized team activities Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Manning likely is receiving a day off, so owners should not be worried about his absence. Manning still has a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game and should be a starting fantasy option most weeks this upcoming season.

Broncos | Chris Clark to stay at right tackle for DEN

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:29:48 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos OT Chris Clark will continue to play right tackle despite OT Ryan Clady (knee) likely missing the 2015 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Clark replaced Clady at left tackle when Clady was injured in 2013. OTs Michael Schofield and rookie Ty Sambrailo figure to be the frontrunners to start at left tackle, but recently acquired OT Ryan Harris should also be in the mix to protect QB Peyton Manning's blind side.

Fantasy Tip: Protection has been imperative for Manning throughout his illustrious career. Clady is regarded as one of the best left tackles in the league. The Broncos are expected to implement more play action into the offense this year, so that combined with new head coach Gary Kubiak's zone blocking scheme should also be beneficial to Manning's safety.
