Fantasy Tip: Thomas has six catches for 52 yards in just two playoff games this year, and he's been plagued by costly drops throughout the year. However, he finished 2015 with 105 catches for 1,304 yards and six touchdowns, so he's still a top receiving talent. But it won't be easy against Norman, who is having an All-Pro season.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Manning will retire after the Super Bowl, but if he does end up elsewhere next year, it is hard to see him being any more than a low-end QB1 based on his performance the last couple of seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Manning has played better during the playoffs than he did during the regular season but will be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense in Super Bowl 50. He should have several chances to make plays during the game but probably will not be able to post big numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Manning won't put up big numbers against the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl, but if he avoids costly turnovers he'll give Denver a good shot at winning. Daniels will be needed in order to keep Carolina's linebackers honest, but don't expect another two-touchdown performance like in the AFC Championship.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has drawn much criticism for his declining arm strength, but at least one teammate doesn't see it that way. WR Emmanuel Sanders believes most of Manning's issues have been a result of the foot injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the season. "It wasn't his arm. It was just his foot. Peyton's arm has always been good to me, in my eyes. He's never had a really, really strong arm. He's always been the guy that before you come out of your breaks, the ball is there," Sanders said.
Fantasy Tip: Manning's completion percentage has actually dipped from 59.8% in the regular season to 55.1 in the playoffs, but he has avoided the interceptions that dogged him throughout the first four months of the season. Another mistake-free game would go a long way in helping the Broncos upset the Carolina Panthers in what could be his final game in Super Bowl 50.

Denver Broncos Ss T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) and OG Louis Vasquez (knee) all practiced Wednesday, Feb. 3, and head coach Gary Kubiak expects all three to play in Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. Ward only slightly favored his ankle while running and Stewart was running well without limitations.

Denver Broncos FS Darian Stewart (knee), OG Louis Vasquez (knee) and FS T.J. Ward (ankle) were limited in practice Wednesday, Feb. 3. LB Todd Davis (shoulder), CB Chris Harris Jr. (shoulder), LB Brandon M. Marshall (ankle), OG Evan Mathis (ankle) and DE DeMarcus Ware (knee, back) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the last meaningful game for both Manning and Daniels. The two veterans hooked up for the only two Broncos touchdowns in the AFC Championship a week and a half ago, but don't expect the same results against the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl. As for next season, much hinges on if Manning stays or retires, but you can probably leave Daniels on your league's waiver wire.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Danny Trevathan said he expects to speak with the Chicago Bears when he enters free agency this offseason. Bears head coach John Fox coached Trevathan with the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It's no secret that the 39-year-old Manning doesn't have the arm strength he once did. The Carolina Panthers weakness is in their secondary, but can Manning exploit it if they suffocate the short throws? It remains to be seen, but either way it seems unlikely that No. 18 will put up big numbers on this defense.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will be given plenty of time to make a decision on his future following Super Bowl 50, according to general manager John Elway. "He's got plenty of time, whatever time he needs. I think it's never going to be a quick decision. You don't want it to be. It's one that's going to change his life ... and it's always a hard decision," Elway said, "so we'll give him plenty of time."
Fantasy Tip: It's widely believed that this will indeed be Manning's final rodeo, win or lose. So it'd be a pretty big surprise if he returned for one more year in 2016, and that'd likely come in another uniform, too. Manning would be nothing more than a risky fantasy backup if he comes back for one more run.

Fantasy Tip: The 39-year-old future Hall of Fame quarterback has suffered through multiple injuries the last year and a half, and Sunday's big game is likely to be his last. If he does stick around for one more year, no fantasy owner will want to take the risk on Manning as anything more than a backup QB.
