2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Nov-25-2015 by Shawn Childs


Update (11/25): Manning has been an unmitigated nightmare this season. His legs have given out on him and he no longer has anything even resembling an NFL arm. Prior to being benched with an alleged foot injury he was leading the league with 17 interceptions compared to just nine touchdown passes. We may not see Manning take another NFL snap, in his last outing he went five-of-20 for 35 yards and four interceptions with no TDs. His QBR was 0.1. Brock Osweiler is currently the starter in Denver. Manning can be cast to the waiver wire.

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.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning

Latest Update

Nov-26-15 Broncos QB Peyton Manning will now miss at least three games

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was reportedly expected to miss at least two more weeks. Now that timetable has been pushed back to at least three more weeks according to's Ian Rapoport. He's dealing with a torn plantar fascia and rest is the only way to fully recover from the foot injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's hard not to think that injury is at least a bit suspect. It may just a matter of time until this "injury" is season ending. Surely he is dealing with an injury, but it may be a bit more of an excuse to bench him than anything else. Make no mistake, he lost his job due to poor play, not a foot issue.
