#1 vs. SD 

By Patrick Johnson, Broncos Correspondent, Fri, Oct 24th 3:18pm EDT

Peyton Manning carved up the Chargers' secondary all night long. Emmanuel Sanders was his preferred WR and caught all 3 receiving TDs. Demaryius Thoma was also heavily involved and racked up a 8/105/0 stat line.

Fantasy Impact: Manning and Andrew Luck remain two of the only consistent, top fantasy QBs each week. The Broncos travel to Foxboro to face the Patriots after their mini-bye. The Pats boast one the top pass D's in the league, which will put a damper on Manning's fantasy ceiling. Nonetheless, he's still a rock solid QB1, and if you have him, you're starting him.

Peyton Manning broke the career NFL TD record, previously held by Brett Favre, when he threw his third TD on Sunday Night Football. Peyton carved up the 49ers secondary completing 22 of 26 passes for 318 yards and 4 TDs despite resting in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Peyton, again, lived up to his elite QB1 status. The offense is highly efficient at the mid-season mark, and everyone involved is deriving fantasy value. Manning and Broncos host the Chargers Thursday night on a short week. Obviously, there's no decision at QB for Manning owners. He's locked in as a QB1 each week, and against an average Charger Defense, he'll be a high-end QB1 in week 8.

Peyton Manning completed 22 of 33 passes for 237 yards and 3 TDs. The Jets pressured Manning early and often, which limited his production. However on the whole, Manning still managed to lead Broncos to victory and produce a solid QB1 fantasy day.

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos host the 49ers next Sunday night, and Peyton will be locked in as a QB1 against an average Niners secondary.

Manning had a record-breaking week in his game against the Cardinals and his efforts bring out the best in others.

Fantasy Impact: Manning makes great players unbelievable and owners of various Bronco players can thank Manning for raising the collective bar of achievement. Look for more big games from Peyton and Company in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Impact: Bruce Arians and Tom Moore are both very familiar with Manning having coached him in the past. That street goes both ways though, and with an extra week to prepare, Manning should be primed for a big day.

By Patrick Johnson, Broncos Correspondent, Mon, Sep 22nd 8:53pm EDT

Peyton Manning led a heroic two-minute drill to tie the game at the end of regulation, despite ultimately losing in overtime. Manning completed 31 of 49 passes for 303 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT.

Fantasy Impact: Despite a brutal matchup on the road in Seattle, Manning gritted his way to a productive fantasy performance. He remains atop the QB1 tier but has a bye coming up in Week 4.

By Patrick Johnson, Broncos Correspondent, Mon, Sep 15th 9:43pm EDT

Peyton Manning completed 21 of 26 passes for 242 yards and 3 red zone TDs Sunday against Kansas City. Though not on pace to match last year's record setting pace, Manning is locked in as an every week QB1.

Fantasy Impact: The Broncos travel to Seattle in week 3, so expectations for Manning's fantasy production should be tempered. Peyton will be a mid range QB1 next week in the hostile Seattle environment.

By Patrick Johnson, Broncos Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 8:04pm EDT

Peyton Manning completed 22 of 36 passes in Sunday Night's game against the Colts. He only tallied 269 yards through the air but did connect with TE Julius Thomas for 3 TDs.

Fantasy Impact: Peyton retains his elite status amongst the fantasy QBs. Manning is due for a big game next week as the Broncos play host to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Here we go. Peyton is arguably the best passer in the NFL and he has the receivers and the blocking to make special things happen this season. His leadership is invaluable to a team that has sights on the Super Bowl and coming away with the trophy this year. He is healthy and is a must start, every week, in all formats.

By Steve Painter, Broncos Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 11:57pm EDT

Peyton Manning had a big night against the Texans, going 21-27 for 243 yards, two touchdowns and 1 interception.

Fantasy Impact: There are several quarterbacks who might have good fantasy years, but Manning may lead the way, as he has the resources to score massive points during the 2014 campaign.

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.

So I guess Peyton Manning is pretty good. Last week he sat out the fourth quarter against the 49ers because they were up so big. Philip Rivers always seems to play well against the Broncos so I expect this game to turn into a shootout. Peyton should be good again.

Philip Rivers laughed and played along with the joke. Peyton Manning, however, seemed serious about the scoreboard shenanigans in Denver last night. During the fourth quarter of the Broncos win, the stadium video board operator flashed shots of Rivers and Manning, causing the crowd to alternate between boos and hosannas. According to Mike Klis of… | Oct 24th
Peyton Manning was up 14 points on his division rivals late in the fourth quarter during Thursday night's win, but he wasn't happy. At least not with the scoreboard operator.

As Denver tried to run out the clock in the final three minutes of Thursday night’s game vs. San Diego, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning barked signals near the line of scrimmage. Then, he shouted a word — a surname, it sure seemed — that caught the attention. “Romo!” Manning barked, as this clip confirms.…

Dwight Freeney didn't get the opportunity to tackle Peyton Manning last season due to injuries. However, the San Diego Chargers' pass rusher hopes to drag down his former teammate Thursday night.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Oct 22nd
I think Manning will have a solid week, but I would not expect the video game numbers against a Chargers D that is 5th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 5 weeks. Also, 38-year old QBs tend to struggle on short rest and Manning has been average by his standards on Thursday Night the last 2 years.

From now on, every time Peyton Manning throws a touchdown, he will break a record — his own. Entering Sunday Night Football only two passing touchdowns behind Brett Favre's 506, Manning threw three first-half touchdowns against the 49ers. Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker caught the first two touchdowns of the night and Demaryius Thomas caught the record-breaker. While there's still mo...

Peyton Manning is taking the week off. Only physically, we know, as his mental process hasn’t stopped in about 18 years, but still, a week off is a week off. He’ll undoubtedly come back as good as ever after that break, but his future awesomeness doesn’t do your fantasy football team a whole lot of good in week four. Heck, maybe it didn’t save you through the first three we...
