Setting the record for TD in a season means he is the #1 QB in 2014. He won't repeat that many TD's but he will still be extremely solid.
With some new weapons and an offense not as focused on the run Griffen's upside is very solid.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Manning is the consensus #1 because of the talent around him, his consistency from year-to-year and he leads the pool in FFLockerRoom's True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/
***Griffin continues to struggle in the preseason as the conversion to a pocket passer has been tougher than what people had expected.***Two words for you, Andy Dalton. Two more words for you, Jay Gruden. RG3 is said to be looking better than ever via several different media outlets and sources so health should not be an issue. Add in the fact that Griffin has a very solid group of receivers to throw to led by former Eagle DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon and you can't help but get excited. But OC Gruden will be the cherry on top of this sundae. He turned the Red Rifle into one of the best fantasy quarterbacks last season and I predict that Griffin will enjoy similar success. Just don't expect nearly the rushing yards as he had in his first year in the league.

Didn't open '14 w/ 7 TDs this time (only 3), and 2nd half vs. Indy was shaky, but mostly a business as usual performance in W1
 
  
Matthew Hill
Fantasy Team Advice
 
Griffen is healthy, surrounded by play makers and is being coached by pass-happy Jay Gruden. Look for RG3 to have a monster year.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Freak season at age 37 makes it hard to triangulate his overall fantasy value.
He's looked terrible in the preseason. Small sample size, but ...
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Manning won't go breaking records again in 2014, but that's not to say he can't come close.
RG3 is past his knee injury and he's in an offense that should maximize his talents. If Jay Gruden can make Andy Dalton an elite fantasy passer, RG3 is primed for success.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
The "you can't draft a QB in the first round" is no longer true. You can dominate with Manning if you land your sleepers and 2nd-5th rounders.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
“Maybe I can’t throw the 100 MPH fastball anymore, but I can still strike you out, picking my spots, working the plate,” Manning said. “I don’t 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 Bronco’s had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL last season which resulted in great success. This year they’re 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.
RG3 is now almost a year and a half removed from his ACL injury and reportedly “looks like a different QB.” Washington will have DeSean Jackson running deep routes alongside Pierre Garcon while TE Jordan Reed (who has the Aaron Hernandez ability) dominates the middle of the field. Washington signed Pass-Happy Coach Jay Gruden this offseason, who led Bengals Andy Dalton to a Top 5 Fantasy QB finish last season. Expect a major bounce back year for RG3.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Career high with 659 passing attempts and 55 TDs. Manning had not broken 40 TDs since 2004. Manning will be the first QB drafted this season, but I don't see how he can put up the great numbers that he did last season. He is a great QB, but not worth a 2nd round pick. In 2004, Manning threw for 49 TDs in 2004, but only 28 TDs in 2005, so there is precedence for regression.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
We know what Peyton can do with these weapons in Denver. They lost Decker, but added Sanders and Lattimer and he still has Thomas, Welker and Thomas again.
RG3 has plenty of upside, but may have some growing pains in Gruden's new offense. Much of his past fantasy greatness stemmed from his rushing ability and that could be curtailed this season, but he'll also have a healthy Garcon, DJax and Reed to help him out.
  
KJ
Fantasy Team Advice
It will be incredibly difficult for Peyton and the Broncos to reproduce their 2013 season. While his numbers should still be eye-popping don't expect the nearly 5500 passing yards and 55 TD's again this year
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
A regression from his record-setting 2013 is inevitable, but the floor will still be top 3.
Gruden's attempt to mold him into a pocket passer a failure thus far.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Manning is still an elite fantasy quarterback, but here is the stat that concerns me the most about Manning duplicating his 2013 season. Of the 16 games he played in 2013, nine of them were against teams that finished 25th or lower in pass defense and only 2 were against Top 10 pass defenses, the Houston Texans & NY Giants. This year they play the tough NFC West instead of the NFC East and the AFC East instead of the AFC South. Plus their division is tougher this year. Much tougher games and Manning is now 38 years old; he should not come close to duplicating his 2013 season.
When I watch RGIII, I see a quarterback with bad footwork that can't figure out how to get out of bounds when he takes off down the field. Also, Jay Gruden does not want to call a ton of designed running plays this year. I don't see RGIII as a refined enough passer to finish in the Top 10 nor do I see him as durable enough to make it there as a runner.
