Broncos | Peyton Manning not worried about physical

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 10:55:43 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) said he's not worried at all about not passing the physical he's due to take March 1. His $19 million salary for the 2015 season would become guaranteed March 9 if he decides to come back, and he'll have to pass a physical to make sure he's good to go. "I don't see that physical being that significant to tell you the truth as far as that revelation," Manning said. "I feel pretty confident that I would pass that physical and my neck is in good shape."

Fantasy Tip: If Manning doesn't have any worries about his physical status, it sure seems like he'd be willing to return for an 18th season. However, that's still to be determined. If Manning returns, he still has some QB1 value left in him, but it'll be more of a risky proposition than ever before.

Broncos | Peyton Manning not worried about offense

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 10:01:47 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels comfortable in almost any offense "aside from the Delaware Blue Hen Wing T." He said that a change to a new offensive philosophy by head coach Gary Kubiak shouldn't be a problem.

Fantasy Tip: If Manning returns for another season, we doubt that he'd find trouble being productive in a new system if he sets his sights to learning it. However, he's unlikely to continue being an elite QB1 as his physical skills deteriorate, including his arm strength, mainly.

Broncos | Peyton Manning's decision may come soon

Fri, 30 Jan 2015 09:43:49 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may make a decision on whether he plans to return for another season in the near future, according to his dad, Archie Manning. Archie thinks his son will make his decision "maybe in the next week or two." "He's given a lot of thought to it," Archie Manning said. "My advice for him is to go through the process, get away a little bit, let your leg heal, give it a lot of thought and decide what you're going to do … (I) think he's taken a good evaluation of where he is physically."

Fantasy Tip: If Manning returns for another season, it'll be very interesting to see what kind of offense new head coach Gary Kubiak will run with No. 18 at the helm. Kubiak will no doubt have to tailor his typical west coast offense to Manning's skillset. In 2015 if Manning returns, due to his physical limitations, he can still be a QB1 in the right matchups, but we shouldn't expect insane numbers like he's put up the last three seasons with Denver.

Fantasy Tip: Manning would be a high-to-mid QB1 in traditional leagues next season.

Broncos | Kubiak plans to talk with Peyton Manning

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 14:08:05 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning remains unsure of his future with the team, but head coach Gary Kubiak said he plans to sit down with Manning and talk about their relationship moving forward. Kubiak doesn't think the difference in his offensive style will be a big deal if Manning decides to come back for another year. "Well, it's easy to build a playbook for him," Kubiak said. "I mean, he's been the master at it for many, many years, and you're talking about a Hall of Fame player, Hall of Fame person."

Fantasy Tip: Manning is a big question mark this offseason. If he returns, it'll be interesting to see how he meshes with a new offensive scheme around him. Surely, with his aging physical nature and in a new system, fantasy football drafters will be more cautious in selecting him as a bona fide QB1.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to skip Pro Bowl

Sun, 18 Jan 2015 06:38:05 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) will not play in the 2015 Pro Bowl because of a quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's future is in question because there appears to be a chance that he could retire this offseason. Owners should monitor the situation until he decides on his future. He will be a No. 1 quarterback if he decides to play in 2015.

Broncos | DeMarcus Ware thinks Peyton will return

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:24:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is believed to be leaning toward returning for another season, according to DE DeMarcus Ware. Ware said he has spoken to Manning since the team's divisional round loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and he's confident that Manning will return for another season. "Me and Peyton will always talk back and forth about things. Now he's just looking forward to the next season and how we can get better," Ware said. "I think he'll be back. I feel like he still has a couple years in him."

Fantasy Tip: If Manning returns, he could be running a completely different offense after the team fired John Fox as the head coach. That's something that would likely turn off many fantasy football owners from taking a stab at Manning in his age-39 season. Stay tuned.

Broncos | John Elway wants Peyton Manning back

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 13:41:26 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be given time to make up his mind on the future of his playing career, but general manager John Elway would very much like to have him return for the 2015 season and beyond. "Just know how much we want you back, but the thing is for you to take the time and get away from this," Elway said he told Manning. Elway will keep in touch with Manning over the next several weeks, and Manning will be "involved in the process" of finding a new head coach.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's productivity clearly declined rapidly in the second half of the season, but how much of that was related to his torn quadriceps? If he comes back next year, how effective and healthy will he be over a full season? There will be many questions surrounding No. 18 if he returns next year, making him a very shaky QB1 for fantasy football rosters.

Broncos | Peyton Manning confidant says he'll play

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 07:25:50 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will likely play in 2015, according to a source close to Manning. "I think he'll be back," the source said. "He was just emotional after the game because of the disappointment of the loss and everything that went into it. He just needs to take a month off and get away from it all and he'll be fine."

Fantasy Tip: Manning would be one of the last elite QB1 options, or a midrange QB1 in traditional drafts next season.

Broncos | Peyton Manning decision has target window

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 08:53:15 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's $19 million salary for 2015 becomes guaranteed March 9.

Fantasy Tip: A decision on his playing status for next season should be known by then. Manning would be one of the final elite QB1 options in traditional leagues, or he could fall into the midrange options in drafts.
