2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
In past years, an analysis of Peyton Manningís fantasy football prospects would be about how remarkably consistent and highly productive he has been. This year, itís about his health and his role with a new team, the Denver Broncos. Reports out of Denver indicate that his arm strength is nearly back to full capacity after having multiple neck surgeries but training camp and the preseason will tell us if that is truly the case. Preseason games will also give us an indication of how well his body responds to physical contact. As to the Broncos offensive philosophy, letís just say that they didnít get Peyton Manning to hand the ball off anywhere near as much as they did last season. With a pair of emerging wide receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, two solid receiving options at tight end in Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreesen and an intriguing rookie out of the backfield in Ronnie Hillman, there are more than enough weapons for Manning to finish as a top five fantasy quarterback provided he can remain healthy for the entire season. More on to the consistency factor: Prior to last season, Manning had thrown for over 4,000 passing yards in 11 of 13 seasons (missing the mark in his rookie season and in 2005 when he was rested at the end of he year) and had at least 26 touchdown passes in every pro season. And we all know that he had never missed a start prior to 2011. Given his health status, Manning should be taken as the 9th or 10th quarterback but his upside is certainly greater than that.

News From The Past 90 Days
Peyton not ready to make retirement decision     -- Mon Feb 8 7:00 am --

Will wait a few weeks before making an announcement
Fresh off the Denver Broncos' victory in Super Bowl 50, quarterback Peyton Manning tells TODAY he's going to enjoy his victory for a few weeks before deciding whether he will continue his career. "I'll keep doing it for a few more weeks, and then, at the appropriate time, I think I'll make a decision," Manning said. "I have to tell you, though, I'm very much at peace with it." (

FF Today's Take: With another Super Bowl victory under his belt it would be a shock if Manning didn't hang it up. His skills have been in obvious decline the last two seasons and its highly unlikely he'll get another opportunity to go out on top. Brock Osweiler is the favorite to be the Broncos starting quarterback in 2016.
Peyton Manning will need hip surgery in future     -- Wed Feb 3 5:55 pm --

Nothing imminent as Peyton downplays his latest health concerns
On Wednesday, Peyton Manning revealed that he eventually needs to undergo hip replacement surgery, according to a doctor who was kind enough to break the news to the aging quarterback. (

FF Today's Take: Peyton Manning downplayed this report by deeming it something he will need to do at "age 52" but the fact remains that he will be another year older and his body is clearly wearing down. Nonetheless, there are certainly going to be NFL teams interested in him if he is physically able to play the position in 2016.
Peyton has told friends he intends to retire     -- Mon Feb 1 7:40 pm --

Has yet to tip his hand publicly, however
In a not-so-private moment, Broncos QB Peyton Manning told Patriots HC Bill Belichick that 2015 may be Peytonís last rodeo. In much more private moments, Manning reportedly has been more definitive. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Manning has told close friends that heíll retire after Super Bowl 50. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: This doesn't qualify as breaking news, but rather another reminder that one of the all-time greats will probably be playing his last game on Sunday. The 18-year veteran will turn 40 next month and his body appears to be breaking down after an injury-plagued season in 2016. Win or lose in Super Bowl 50, it will likely mark the end of the road for the five-time NFL MVP. As such, one of Denver's top offseason priorities will likely be locking up Brock Osweiler long-term.
Broncos announce Peyton Manning will start     -- Thu Jan 7 10:15 am --

Divisional Round QB goes to the veteran
The decision has been made: Peyton Manning will start at quarterback for the Broncos in their divisional-round game on Jan. 17. Head Coach Gary Kubiak told the team at its Thursday morning meeting that Manning would start. Kubiak met with Manning and Brock Osweiler prior to announcing the decision. (

FF Today's Take: When Manning relieved Osweiler in Week 17, you had to figure Manning would be the starter in the playoffs. Manning has recovered enough from his torn plantar fascia to get back on the field but concerns over arm strength and his poor play (9 TDS, 17 INTs) remain a big question mark. The Broncos will face either Houston, Kansas City or Pittsburgh in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
Injury Peyton Manning returns to practice field     -- Thu Dec 10 7:00 am --

Threw inside for half hour and performed drill work
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning took his first significant steps toward returning to the practice field Wednesday morning, throwing inside for a half hour and performing drill work. Manning hasn't practiced with the team since leaving the Nov. 15 loss against Kansas City with a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: There's no definitive timetable for Manning's return and it appears that Brock Osweiler's starting job is safe for the immediate future. It's doubtful Manning would return before the regular season is complete.
Injury Peyton Manning has cast removed     -- Wed Dec 2 5:00 pm --

Still in walking boot
Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that the cast came off, but the quarterback is still in a boot as he recovers from a plantar fascia injury. The cast removal means Peyton Manning can now start rehabbing, but the quarterback said on Wednesday that he is week-to-week. (

FF Today's Take: If you haven't already moved on from Peyton Manning (plantar fascia), you should consider using the roster spot on someone else. If and when he does return this season, he will be tough for Denver HC Gary Kubiak to push Brock Osweiler back to the sidelines after the success he has had since taking over as the team's starting quarterback. Osweiler doesn't bring a ton of fantasy upside but he could be a useful matchup option down the stretch in deeper leagues.
Injury Peyton not expected to be healthy "anytime soon"     -- Mon Nov 30 5:55 pm --

Denver QB debate may not be addressed for several weeks
Per @mortreport, Peyton Manning not expected to be healthy ďanytime soon.Ē Maybe a month from a real Manning-Osweiler decision. (Kevin Seifert on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Earlier reports on Monday suggested Manning will be allowed to remove his walking boot before the end of the week, so it would seem he could be back by Week 14 in an emergency situation. With that said, it is quickly looking as if Brock Osweiler is simply a better fit for HC Gary Kubiak's offense than Manning. Denver has rushed for at least 170 yards in each of Osweiler's first two starts after averaging 86 over its first nine games.
Brock Osweiler to make second straight start     -- Mon Nov 23 1:30 pm --

On the QB1 radar against New England
Brock Osweiler will make another start for the Broncos against the Patriots on Sunday night, per team sources. (Chris Morensen on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Osweiler was solid in the Broncos win at Chicago tossing two touchdowns while throwing for 250 yards and zero INTs. There's some uncertainty as to whether Peyton Manning will remain on the bench because he's injured and unable to play or because the Broncos are looking to move on at the position. The answer likely lies somewhere between. Osweiler will be on the QB1 radar at home against the Patriots in Week 12.
Injury Osweiler preparing for first career start     -- Wed Nov 18 8:00 pm --

Manning on 'treatment only' program
ďIíve prepared for this moment for a very long time,íí Osweiler said after practice Wednesday. ďI havenít wasted a single day, Iím just going to stick to the preparation that got me to this point and Iíll be ready to go on Sunday.íí Peyton Manning has made every start since signing with the Broncos, right up until Sundayís game. Having dealt with right shoulder, left foot and rib cage injuries of late the Broncos have put Manning on a treatment-only program -- no practice, no games -- for at least the near future. (

FF Today's Take: Brock Osweiler's first pro start comes against a Bears squad that employs former Broncos HC John Fox. Familiarity aside Chicago is only yielding 217 yards per game through the air and has given up the sixth most passing touchdowns (17) in the league. Osweiler sits just outside the top 10-12 fantasy QBs this week but carries plenty of appeal for dynasty leaguers.
Injury Peyton Manning ruled out for Week 11     -- Mon Nov 16 4:30 pm --

Brock Osweiler will draw start against Chicago
Peyton Manning will not face former Denver head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase when the Broncos travel to Chicago to take on the Bears on Sunday. Coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday that Brock Osweiler will start in Week 11, as Manning has been ruled out. "That decision has been made," said Kubiak, who added that Manning expressed a desire to play through his nagging injury, which NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported is a case of plantar fasciitis. Trevor Siemian will back up Osweiler until at least next Monday when Kubiak will check back in with Manning. (

FF Today's Take: Kubiak expressed regret Monday for not holding Manning out of Week 10 altogether after his 39-year-old quarterback suffered a ribcage injury at some point late last week. If Osweiler shows he can move the offense consistently over the next week and maybe two, Kubiak may feel as if he has no choice but to stay with him. With his 9:17 touchdown-to-interception ratio, Manning is the only quarterback in the league that has started every game and has a negative TD-to-INT ratio.
Injury Peyton Manning has plantar fasciitis in left foot     -- Mon Nov 16 11:30 am --

Brock Osweiler replaced Manning in Week 10
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has plantar fasciitis in his foot, including a partial tear of tissue, an NFL source confirmed Monday. Manning began experiencing pain two weeks ago, then aggravated the injury on the artifical turf at Lucas Oil Stadium eight days ago. He completed 5-of -20 passes for 35 yards and 4 INTS on Sunday against the Chiefs. He is worst in the NFL with 17 interceptions, leaving him on pace for a career-high 30. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: Nothing is official but you can expect Brock Osweiler to be under center for the Broncos in Week 11 against the Bears as rest is the best cure for Manning's foot injury. Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas are performing more like low-end WR2s than WR1s through ten weeks of the season.
