2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Rumors of Peyton Manning’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. The future first ballot Hall of Famer took a big step back in 2014, throwing for 750 fewer yards and 16 fewer touchdowns with five more interceptions than he threw in 2013. Sounds terribly disappointing on the surface, doesn’t it? Well, despite the drop-off, Manning still finished as the No. 4 quarterback in fantasy football with 39 touchdowns and over 4,700 yards through the air. If you knew you were getting those numbers again in 2015, it’d be almost impossible to turn down Manning as a first round fantasy football selection. But Manning, despite his incredible consistency, does not have the sexy name value anymore like that of Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers. He may not even be as exciting as Russell Wilson now that the Seattle QB has Jimmy Graham to throw to. But one thing’s for certain – Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning. And when it comes to elite fantasy football production, literally no one in the history of the league has done it better than No. 18.

In fairness, the 39 year-old saw significant regression in the second half of 2014 as he had a couple of very disappointing games where he threw for fewer than 200 yards and he even failed to throw a touchdown in two games, which is an extreme rarity for the veteran signal caller. Still, if you take Manning’s second half of 2014 and project it over the course of a full season, you would have a quarterback who threw for more than 4,300 yards and 30 touchdowns. That would put him 8th among quarterbacks in yardage and tied with his brother Eli at ninth place in touchdowns. Not too shabby for a guy who was noticeably injured. One of the biggest concerns for Manning is the loss of tight end Julius Thomas. The Broncos seem to be excited about the development of second-year receiver Cody Latimer who should see much more playing time this season and Emmanuel Sanders will most likely play out of the slot on three-wide sets, where he was extremely effective this past season. The loss of Thomas could be a major factor, however, as Thomas was among the most dynamic playmakers at the position over the past two seasons. Veteran pass catcher Owen Daniels is expected to take Thomas’ spot at tight end and he should be able to provide some value, but he is an obvious downgrade in terms playmaking ability.

Still, Manning is among the elite at quarterback. With so many questions surrounding other top quarterbacks after the “big two,” Manning provides an extremely high floor with a high ceiling to go along with it. Sure, he’s not going to be the dynamic runner that many other top quarterbacks are, but he should put up high-end passing numbers with the best of them. Because of that, he is a lock to go in the top five at the position in almost every draft.

News From The Past 90 Days
Peyton stronger and throwing with more velocity
Star QB engaged in vigorous offseason workout regimen
By: John Canario | Fri Aug 21, 4:15 pm

Denver Broncos
During Super Bowl week, Peyton Manning stood before the media and talked like a man ready to prove something. He began working out maniacally in February, between trips, between hunts, between speaking engagements. He arrived back at Dove Valley in April, appearing ready and rested. He returned to training camp, stronger and leaner, roughly 5 pounds lighter, according to Seattle Seahawks broadcaster and former Manning backup Brock Huard. "It's different than a year ago. It's crazy, but he's throwing the ball a lot harder and even more accurate than last year," defensive end DeMarcus Ware said. "I think that goes to diet, preparation and how the practices are tailored so they aren't taxing on the body. He's the player he's always been with a little bit more edge." (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Manning tailed off last season leaving many wondering what kind of fantasy production is to be expected of him this year. His age isn't doing him any favours but he's put together three impressive seasons in Denver, and still has a potent receiving corps despite Julius Thomas' departure.


Demaryius Thomas likely to play against HOU
Kubiak pleased with progress
By: Jake Gordon | Sat Aug 15, 7:20 pm

Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said he's pleased with Demaryius Thomas' progress after he missed the offseason workouts because of contract negotiations. Kubiak said the starting receiver will play Saturday in Houston. How much will be determined by the coaches later this week. "I think he's ready to go play as long as Peyton (Manning) plays," Kubiak said. He said Manning will probably play through at least part of the second quarter. (Denver Post)

FFToday's Take: Demaryius Thomas is ready for game action and figures to lead the Broncos receiving corps again in 2015. With Emmanuel Sanders' nagging hamstring woes, Thomas should be Peyton Manning's top target right out of the gates this season.
