Don't mistake this as concern over Manning, but with weapons limited by injury and a date with the league's 2nd most limiting QB D (14 TDs through 10 games) is hardly a game in which to expect his best.
 
  
Derek Lofland

This is a very tough matchup. The Dolphins are third in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks (17.9), sacks (30) and QB rating allowed (77.9). Also the Dolphins are missing a ton of skill position players. Manning is still a QB1, but I do not think he is a slam-dunk Top-5 option.
