Broncos | Peyton Manning plans to return

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 07:48:20 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to return in 2015, pending the results of his annual physical, according to three sources The Denver Post's Woody Paige trusts. The test results were learned at the beginning of March last season. The team has requested a decision from him by March 9.

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.

Broncos | Peyton Manning doesn't have complete tear

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 08:46:50 -0800

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) has a strain, and not a complete tear of the right quadriceps muscle, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It's not known whether it's a Grade 1-2 strain of the muscle, but this report indicates it was not of the Grade 3 variety. Manning should be viewed as one of the last elite QB options, or first midrange options in traditional league drafts if he returns in 2015.

Broncos | Peyton Manning injured Dec. 14

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 08:20:22 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) initially tore the quadriceps Dec. 14 against the San Diego Chargers, according to sources. An MRI confirmed the tear.

Fantasy Tip: Manning would be one of the last elite, or first midrange QB1 options in traditional league drafts if he returns in 2015.

Broncos | Peyton Manning has torn quadriceps

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 08:05:32 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) played Sunday, Jan. 11, and the final month of the season, with a torn right quadriceps muscle, according to two sources.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's throwing velocity and abilities have been questioned in the aftermath of their loss in the AFC divisional-round playoff game. This information might bode well for a return in 2015. If that's the case, he's one of the last elite, or first mid-range QB1 options in traditional league drafts.

Broncos | Peyton Manning tanks on lengthy throws

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 07:02:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was 2-for-12 on passes that traveled 15 yards or more Sunday, Jan. 11, in the divisional-round playoff loss.

Fantasy Tip: Denver's roster is in major flux with Demaryius Thomas a free agent and several potential changes to the coaching staff. Manning's arm strength really seems to have declined. If he returns next season, he'll be at the end of the elite QB1 conversation.

Broncos | Peyton Manning undecided on future

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 18:05:40 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he will have to take some time to see how he feels before deciding whether or not he plays next season.

Fantasy Tip: Manning certainly looked broken down during the team's divisional round loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and if he decides to call it a career, the fantasy value of every member of the Denver offense would be significantly altered.

Broncos | Peyton Manning struggles in loss

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:32:04 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed 26 of his 46 pass attempts and finished with 211 yards and one touchdown in a 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Manning looked like a shell of the player that he was just last season, struggling to complete any pass down the field. Add this performance to his struggles in the final weeks of the regular season, and it is fair to question whether his days as an elite quarterback are behind him.

Colts | Pocket passers have hurt Colts

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 14:17:24 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo went a combined 99-for-135 for 1,266 yards, 15 touchdowns and only two interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts this year, and the Colts were 0-4 in those games. Indy also sacked those QBs just twice. "You've got to do a great job of mixing things up," Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said. "There's nothing that (Manning) has not seen. Obviously, we know he's going to do his homework and be prepared as well as any quarterback can be prepared. We just got to do a great job of mixing things up."

Fantasy Tip: That bodes well for Manning ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) for this weekend, but a lot has changed for the Broncos since these two teams met back in Week 1. For one, Manning isn't close to full health, and Denver is much more balanced on offense. If the Broncos can successfully run the ball on Indy, they may not need to rely much on the right arm of Manning.

Broncos | Peyton Manning probable against Colts

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 13:05:27 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 9, and is probable for the divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: For the second highest cost at FantasyScore this weekend at $8,900 (17.8% of cap), one has to wonder if Manning can even return profit based on the way he's been playing down the stretch. The bye helped him heal up a bit, but the matchup against the Colts should present the Broncos with plenty of opportunities to chew up clock on the ground, too.

Broncos | Peyton Manning's numbers trailing off

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 17:45:26 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning had just one 300-yard passing game over the final six weeks of the season, and he failed to throw a touchdown in two of his final four games.

Fantasy Tip: The decline in Manning's numbers coincided with a rise in C.J. Anderson's numbers, and while a more balanced offense could be better for the Broncos, it is not better for Manning's fantasy value.

Broncos | Peyton Manning practicing in full

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 13:22:25 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) definitely appears to have been helped by the team's bye week, but at the second highest FantasyScore price this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts, he may still find it hard to return value, especially if the Broncos continue to pound the ball on the ground.

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 14:07:18 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: There is no doubt Manning will play this week, but he may be a risky play in FantasyScore with a price of $8,900. The Broncos could run the ball more against the Indianapolis Colts this week.

Broncos | Peyton Manning feels fine physically

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 13:55:54 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) said he feels fine physically heading into the divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11. Manning didn't throw a touchdown pass in two of the team's December games, and he had one four-interception game. He took his usual workload in both of the team's practices this week.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) and the Broncos have made a concerted effort to become a much more balanced offense down the stretch, so his drop in production isn't chiefly based on his injury. Regardless, the matchup against the Colts should feature plenty of running for Denver, making it tough for Manning to return value on his hefty FantasyScore price.

Broncos | Peyton Manning struggling in red zone

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 09:46:21 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning completed only 39% of his passes in the red zone over the final five weeks of the season, which ranks 30th in the league among quarterbacks. Manning completed 78% of his passes in the red zone in the first 12 weeks of the season, which was the best in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Manning did throw for less than 250 yards in three of his last five games and only threw five touchdowns in the last five games. Julius Thomas missed several games and was limited when he returned, which likely affected Manning's stats in the red zone. Manning may be a risky play on FantasyScore at $8,900 since the team may consider running the ball more against the Indianapolis Colts.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to have normal workload this week

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 13:18:27 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) threw in practice Monday, Jan. 5, and he will take his usual workload in practices for the remainder of the week. Manning's thigh injury appears to affect his ability to push off and drive the ball in the team's last two regular season games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Manning's weaker performances down the stretch as the Broncos moved to more of a running team on offense, he's still the second most expensive player at FantasyScore this weekend at $8,900 (17.8% of cap). The Indianapolis Colts present another excellent opportunity to run and control the clock, too, so Manning's price might be too expensive for our taste.

Broncos | Peyton Manning returns to practice

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 16:13:52 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) returned to practice Monday, Jan. 5, after receiving two days off last week to receive treatment on his injured thigh. He made all the necessary throws in practice Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Manning and the Broncos are an entirely different team now than when they faced the Indianapolis Colts back in Week 1 when Manning threw for 269 yards and three touchdowns. The Colts can be beaten through the air, but their ground defense is even more vulnerable, making it another potential ground-and-pound game for Denver. That possibility will make Manning a bit risky for what is expected to be a costly FantasyScore salary this weekend.

Broncos | Peyton Manning gets the day off

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 10:18:56 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was given a veteran's day off to get treatment for a thigh injury Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: This is nothing to be concerned with at this point, and the week off should help Manning get back to full strength. Manning should be ready to go when the team is back in action for the divisional round.

Broncos | Peyton Manning fails to toss TD pass

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 16:58:02 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning did not throw a touchdown pass against the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, despite the team scoring 47 points.

Fantasy Tip: Denver has become more reliant on their running game in the past month or so, alleviating Peyton from having to carry the team. Be cautious when using him on FantasyScore in the postseason.

Broncos | Peyton Manning will play against Oakland

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:57:12 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Manning will play against the Raiders, which is a very nice matchup. With Manning struggling of late, he could be a steal at FantasyScore as a midrange QB2 with your opponents avoiding him altogether.

Broncos | Peyton Manning takes part in practice

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 15:07:04 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Manning is coming off a four-interception performance in Week 16, but he should be able to play against the Oakland Raiders this week. Owners can consider Manning as a No. 1 quarterback for Week 17.

Broncos | Full practice for Peyton Manning

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:42:43 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Manning continues to say he's fine physically, it's worth wondering if his thigh ailment played a part in his four-interception Week 16. He has a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders this weekend, so he should be at least a midrange QB1 at FantasyScore.

Broncos | Peyton Manning not ready to retire

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:26:38 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to continue playing in 2015. "I have no plans along those lines (of retiring)," Manning added. "I'm enjoying playing, I'm looking forward to Sunday's game and hopefully the game to follow that." He currently leads the league with 39 touchdown passes, and he could become the first quarterback in league history with three seasons of at least 40 touchdown passes if he throws one in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders. Executive vice president John Elway thinks Manning still "has plenty of great football in him."

Fantasy Tip: Manning is certainly nearing the end of his football career. For fantasy football purposes, he has performed at a high level this year, despite a rough stretch recently. He has a great matchup in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders, but his recent stretch probably won't have you itching to use him at FantasyScore for $5,555.

Broncos | Peyton Manning fine physically

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 14:58:22 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he's fine physically following the team's Week 17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. In recent weeks, defenses have clogged the middle of the field and forced Manning to take his chances on deep throws down the field, specifically on the sidelines. Manning still leads the league in touchdown throws with 39, but 11 of his 15 interceptions this year have come on the road this year.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($5,555) returns home to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17 with a first-round bye on the line. The matchup should help his numbers coming off a four-interception game, but Oakland also presents Denver with the opportunity to run the ball a lot and control the clock. Consider Manning a midrange QB1 at FantasyScore this week.

Broncos | Peyton Manning looking human

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 10:21:25 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw four interceptions in the team's Week 16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22, and Denver's offense has been inconsistent since losing to the New England Patriots in Week 9. Manning has had a QB rating under 90 only nine times in 47 games since joining the team in 2012, and five of those games have come in the last eight weeks. Manning was confused the Cincinnati's defense for most of the first half and often wasn't on the same page with his receivers. Denver's offensive line has had protection issues of late, as well, causing Manning to often make hurried, panicked throws.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($5,555) is still one of the better quarterbacks in the league, but he may be slowing down as he reaches the end of his career. Even with a fine matchup against the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, you have to question if he'll put up the points to help you win in daily leagues. It could be another contest that'll feature plenty of running from the Broncos.

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:07:07 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) is active for the Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22.

Broncos | Peyton Manning takes normal snaps

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 11:25:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) took a similar amount of snaps Saturday, Dec. 20, as he has all season, according to head coach John Fox, before being listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,800) will probably still play this week despite the questionable designation. However, he's not the best play at quarterback on FantasyScore as Cincinnati has only allowed 14 touchdowns to quarterbacks this year -- one per game.

Broncos | Peyton Manning questionable

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 10:56:55 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that Manning would sit in a game with playoff implications. He'll also have an extra day to rest and rehabilitate. That being said, the Broncos could once again focus on the running game as the Bengals have been atrocious against the run this year. Manning ($8,800) may not be the best option at quarterback at such a steep price on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Peyton Manning still limited

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:38:10 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was officially limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, but he threw more than he did than the day prior, and he threw in individual drills. Manning is on track to play in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22. "He's improving, I thought he had good work out there (Friday)," said head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,800) isn't expected to miss this crucial AFC prime-time showdown. However, we caution FantasyScore players to spend on Manning, since this sets up as another game in which Denver will rely on the run to get them a win.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 11:15:17 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was back to a full practice Friday, Dec. 19, after being limited Thursday, Dec. 18. Manning made several strong throws in the portion open to the media.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,800) will be fine to play Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, but we question how good of a FantasyScore QB he'll be if the Broncos continue to run the ball way more than they throw it.

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:14:46 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh, illness) said his illness is behind him, and he was receiving treatment for his thigh Thursday, Dec. 18. Head coach John Fox called Manning day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,800) should be good to go for Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, his FantasyScore price seems a bit high these days with the Broncos favoring the run in recent weeks.

Broncos | Peyton Manning officially limited

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:27:30 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) was officially listed as limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,800) didn't do much today as the team has an extra day of rest before their Monday night tilt against the Cincinnati Bengals. The extra day to rest should do Manning well, but the team's move to a more run-centered game has faded his fantasy allure. Manning's price tag at FantasyScore seems a bit too pricey right now.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to practice Friday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:01:02 -0800

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) is expected to practice Friday, Dec. 18, after getting Thursday, Dec. 17 off.

Fantasy Tip: It still appears like Manning will be ready to go for the team's Week 16 game. It may be tough for him to live up to the expectations of a FantasyScore price of $8,800 though, especially with how the team has run the ball in recent weeks.

Broncos | Peyton Manning receiving day off

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:42:39 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) left practice early Thursday, Dec. 18, because he is receiving a scheduled day of rest. Manning was not limping when he was walking to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: Manning likely will be able to play in Week 16, but has seen some of his passing numbers go down over the last several weeks. Manning has on thrown for more than 257 yards in the last four games and only has three touchdown passes in the last three games. Manning costs $8,800 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners based on what Manning has been doing recently.

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:31:12 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) left practice early Thursday, Dec. 18, to get treatment for a thigh issue.

Fantasy Tip: Manning will cost $8,800 in FantasyScore this week, but that may be a lot to pay if the Broncos run the ball a lot this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. It may be hard for Manning to live up to expectations.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's contract runs through the 2016 season, and beat writer Mike Klis believes Manning will play out the contract.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's health and declining arm strength are always a concern, but he should continue to be a top-five quarterback option in traditional leagues.

Broncos | Broncos balancing offense

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:20:28 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (illness, thigh) was 17-for-20 passing for the second straight week in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, but this time he threw for 233 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Broncos have tried to balance out their offense in the last three weeks as Manning has completed 17, 14 and 14 passes respectively in those games. He was also ill against the Chargers, but Denver is adjusting to defenses as they try to take the middle of the field away from No. 18. Manning's 28 completions in Weeks 14 and 15 are his lowest total in consecutive games since 2005, and his 45 completions in the last three games are the lowest three-game stretch of his career.

Fantasy Tip: The new and improved balanced offense in Denver is good for their football team, but it surely is bad news for Manning's fantasy value. The matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals looks like another great opportunity for Denver's ground game, as well, so spending $8,800 on Manning at FantasyScore might be the wrong move.

Broncos | Peyton Manning day-to-day

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (illness, thigh) was feeling much better Monday, Dec. 15, and he's listed as day-to-day, according to head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: Manning should be fine for Week 15's matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night, and he'll benefit from an extra day of rest this week. However, it's becoming increasingly hard to justify spending big bucks on Manning at FantasyScore because of the team's insistence on running the ball so much in recent weeks.

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 00:29:18 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has been floated as part of a future ownership group in the Tennessee Titans. The team is currently owned by Tommie Smith, son-in-law of the late Bud Adams, but Smith's family is reportedly not interested in long-term control. Manning would have to retire before joining ownership or front office ranks, and no movement on his future on the field has been reported.

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 14:52:46 -0800

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) started the second half of the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: There were some conflicting reports that he might not return, others that had him probable, etc. He is on the field, and we see him with our eyes. He hasn't done a whole lot for FantasyScore owners, but there is still plenty of football left.

Broncos | Peyton Manning goes to locker room

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 14:10:29 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (thigh) headed to the locker room in the second quarter of the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a thigh injury. He is considered probable to return.

Fantasy Tip: There is another report that Manning went for intravenous fluids for a possible cramp. Either way, it sounds as if he'll be fine for the start of the second half.

Broncos | Peyton Manning fine physically

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 12:58:56 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels physically better this season than he did at any point last year when he had injuries to both of his ankles. "I'm always trying to play better," Manning said. "We always watch the film of the games pretty critically with my coaches, trying to improve, whether we won the game or lost the game, trying to see how I can do my job better in whatever phase that is. I feel good physically, [but] certainly I'm always looking to play better."

Fantasy Tip: Manning's health hasn't been an issue this year, but his lack of passing attempts the last several weeks has, which has led to two straight performances of under 200 yards, including no touchdowns in Week 14. As the Broncos continue to run the ball more, Manning has suffered. However, in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, Manning should be forced to throw more often, making it more acceptable to spend $8,900 on him at FantasyScore.

Broncos | Peyton Manning's TD streak ends

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 16:10:43 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning failed to throw a touchdown pass in the Week 14 win against the Buffalo Bills, ending his streak at 54 straight games with a scoring strike.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos did it on the ground, especially in the red zone, and Manning comes up just three short of the NFL record of 57 straight games with a TD pass held by New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.

Broncos | Peyton Manning held under 200 yards

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 09:40:19 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was held to just 179 yards passing in the team's Week 13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but he did toss two touchdowns in the game. The Chiefs haven't allowed a 300-yard passer all season.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have been focused on running the ball more in recent weeks, and they've had success, so Manning hasn't been forced to throw the ball as much. That could be the case again in Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills, who are a strong defensive unit.
