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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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 ...
