Peyton Manning has more pop on the balls he throws and has better offensive targets to start the 2014 campaign. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Manning is 18 TD's away from setting the league career record, and there will be no regression as his march continues into immortality. His throws have more zip on them then last year and he is committed to winning at Denver.
The offensive line has improved with Orlando Franklin moving inside to the guard position and Emmanuel Sanders, a new addition this year, adds to the targets that Manning has at his disposal. Sanders should have a career type year in this offense.
One would think that regression would be apparent at this point in his career, but Manning is other-worldly and shows no movement toward that end. Fantasy drafters should feel comfortable in selecting him to lead their team to victory this year.

Maybe I cant throw the 100 MPH fastball anymore, but I can still strike you out, picking my spots, working the plate, Manning said. I dont make the same kind of throws I used to make, I try to use the cerebral part and use my experience. Manning erupted in 2013 with a record breaking season for 55 TDs, 5477 Passing Yards and 450 Completions on 659 Passing Attempts. Denver led the NFL last season with 72.1 plays per game. After losing Eric Decker to the New York Jets, the Broncos swiped Emmanuel Sanders and will add him to a core of options such as: Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Julius Thomas. The Denver Broncos had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL last season which resulted in great success. This year theyre rated as having the 2nd hardest schedule in the NFL, which is a factor in 38 year old Peyton Mannings #2 rank, even with their Top 5 Offensive Line.

If you end up with the 5th-9th pick in your draft, you’re probably considering drafting a quarterback in the first round. While you may try to hold out and draft a QB later, opting instead for a stud workhorse running back which seem to be becoming more and more of a novelty in today’s NFL, grabbing one of the top QBs could be even more important. Unless you’re some diehard ...

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) No one is going to argue against Peyton Manning as the top fantasy quarterback for the upcoming season. However, two things can be questioned: 1) Can he repeat his 2013 numbers? 2) Is he worth a first round pick?
