2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-14-2015 by Shawn Childs

Manning is just a winner. In his career, he's 179-77 and has won 10 games or more in each of his last 12 seasons. He needs 2147 passing yards to become the all-time career leader in the NFL. In his three seasons with the Broncos, Manning has averaged 4954 passing yards with 131 passing TDs. He's completed 65.5 percent of his passes throughout his career and an average of 417.6 passes per season. Over his last 11 full seasons, Peyton has never been sacked more than 21 times in a single year. This season he has two dynamic WRs with question marks at the WR3 and the TE position. Running back C.J. Anderson added another dimension to the passing game (33 catches) over the last nine games of the year when he took over as the starter. We all know how great Peyton has been in his career, but we don't know how high he'll fly this year. His value took a huge hit in the passing game over the last six games of 2014 (237.7 YPG - only five TDs in his last five games) as Denver relied more on their run game and defense. He'll need to replace the TD production from the TE position. Let's set the bar at 300 passing yards per game with about 40 passing TDs, which should land him among the top-five quarterbacks in Fantasy Football this season.

Latest Update

Jul-07-15 Report: Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas wants $16 million per season and $48 million guaranteed

Much like Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas is still holding out while he tries to get a long-term deal done before July 15. There is some belief that Thomas would prefer to wait for Bryant to sign his contract and set the market. Reportedly, Thomas wants Calvin Johnson money, which is $16 million per season and $48 million guaranteed. The issue is that the second-highest paid wide receiver is Mike Wallace, who clearly doesn't deserve to be the second-highest paid. So that really messes the market up. This will all come down to guaranteed money. Once one domino falls, the rest will fall along with it.

Fantasy Analysis:

This contract situation isn't all that relevant to his fantasy value. Regardless of how much he's being paid, he will be out there playing. The bigger concerns for Thomas are Peyton Manning's rapidly declining arm and a new run-heavy offense in Denver. I believe he should be knocked out of the top five this season but still in the top 10. This will be the season the Broncos' offense comes crashing back down to earth.
