Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 06 Feb 2016 18:26:03 -0800
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning's former coach and current Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator, Clyde Christensen, isn't "buying" the idea that the Super Bowl will be Manning's last game. "I know how much he loves doing what he does," Christensen said. "He sometimes forgets and still gives me projects and forgets that he has a coach there. I still get a glimpse of how much this guy enjoys football like he does, enjoys the quarterback position like he does and I wouldn't count on him bowing out too early."
Fantasy Tip: Manning's future remains up in the air, but if he does come back, his last couple of seasons suggest that he nothing more than a backup for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's biggest challenge is to not turn the ball over against a very aggressive Panthers defense. If Denver needs to rely on Manning to win the game with his arm, they might be in serious trouble. Daniels could once again be an X-factor like he was in the AFC Championship, but another two-TD performance won't be in the cards.

Denver Broncos LB Todd Davis (shoulder), CB Chris Harris Jr. (shoulder), LB Brandon M. Marshall (ankle), OG Evan Mathis (ankle), FS Darian Stewart (knee), OG Louis Vasquez (knee), FS T.J. Ward (ankle) and DE DeMarcus Ware (knee, back) practiced in full Friday, Feb. 5, and are probable for Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw 168 passes inside the numbers this season and was intercepted 10 times, resulting in a league-high 5.95% interception rate on such throws. The interception percentage ranks as the sixth-worst mark over the last 10 seasons.
Fantasy Tip: Making matters worse for Manning in Super Bowl 50 is a Carolina Panthers defense that recorded a league-high 16 interceptions on middle-of-the-field throws - the sixth-best total by a team over the last 10 seasons. The Broncos will likely need the running game and defense to hold up their end of the bargain in order to get Manning a second ring in what could be his final NFL game.

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 LB Todd Davis (shoulder), CB Chris Harris Jr. (shoulder), LB Brandon M. Marshall (ankle), OG Evan Mathis (ankle), FS Darian Stewart (knee), OG Louis Vasquez (knee), FS T.J. Ward (ankle) and DE DeMarcus Ware (knee, back) all practiced in full Thursday, Feb. 4.

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.
