Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning plans to return for another season according to Denver Post's Woody Paige.
Insight: Paige is a well-respected Denver sports journalist and cites "three trustworthy sources" in his report. Paige says as long as Manning passes his annual spring physical, he will be back with the team in 2015 under new coordinator Gary Kubiak. That should make all fantasy owners happy.

Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning played with a torn right quad over the last month, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: This would explain his significant drop in production. There could be a lot of movement in the front office with Denver, but assuming Manning returns the offense should be potent once again next season.

Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not look like himself, throwing for just 187 yards and a touchdown versus the Colts.
Insight: Credit the Colts defense for an excellent game plan. They tackled so well that the Broncos wide receiver screen game gained very few yards, and the down the field passing game for Denver was nonexistant. This could have very well been Manning's final game. Not the way fantasy owners or Broncos fans would like him to go out, but if it is his final game, there are a lot of regular season memories for fantasy owners. Unfortunately for Manning, not enough postseason memories.

Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (thigh) has been practicing in full this week.
Insight: Manning's participation in Sunday's game was never in question, but he's better when he gets in his practices. He was very average down the stretch as the team featured the run game because of some blocking issues in front of Manning.
 
12/29/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw for 273 yards and no touchdowns.
Insight: Manning has become a mediocre fantasy quarterback over the past month and we blame the solid running of C.J. Anderson and an offensive line that has problems pass protecting. Mannings TD pass total went from 55 to 39 this season.
 
12/23/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was completely off his game Monday night against Cincinnati.
Insight: Manning still threw for 311 yards and a pair of touchdown strikes to Emmanuel Sanders, but he was also picked off four times. The rain didn't help, but it was a sieve-like offensive line that hurt the most.
 
12/18/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not practice Thursday.
Insight: Manning is coming off an illness and a thigh bruise and was given the day off to rest. He should be good to go in Week 16.
 
12/15/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had his fantasy owners in a panic when he headed to the locker room two minutes before the end of the first half and backup Brock Osweiler ran the final series.
Insight: Manning did return for the first series of the second half and played the remainder of the game. He was dealing with a thigh issue and flu-like symptoms. He should be good to go in Week 16. Manning threw for 233 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers, not up to his high standards, but better than Week 14.
 
12/14/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning left the field with 1:53 remaining on the clock in the second quarter due to a thigh injury and is apparently also dealing with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Manning did warm up after half-time and is out there for the opening drive of the second half.
 
12/14/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning left the field with 1:53 remaining on the clock in the second quarter due to a thigh injury and is apparently also dealing with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Manning did warm up after half-time and might return if they fall behind on the scoreboard, but Brock Osweiler will start the second half.
 
12/14/2014 5:24:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning left the field with 1:53 remaining on the clock in the second quarter with an unknown ailment.
Insight: He was trying to block on a play and may have taken a shot to the thigh. Brock Osweiler played one three-and-out series.
 
Cold12/8/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was just a "game manager" again this weekend.
Insight: That's three games in a row that he hasn't attempted more than 35 passes or thrown for more than 257 yards. We don't like where this is headed for fantasy owners. The team has become infatuated with the running game behind C.J. Anderson.
 
12/1/2014 12:07:00 AM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was just a "game manager" against the Chiefs.
Insight: Manning didn't need to do any more because the Broncos offensive line blew giant holes in the Kansas City defense and C.J. Anderson ran through them. Manning passed for just 179 yards and a pair of touchdowns. I'm sure this running "fad" will fade soon and Manning with throw for 300 yards again.
 
11/24/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Just another day at the office for Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Insight: Manning threw for just 257 yards, but did toss four touchdown passes. The Broncos tried to show more balance this weekend, but we doubt that will continue as their best advantage over opposing teams is their passing game.
 
11/16/2014 7:41:00 PM
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had his worst fantasy day of the season.
Insight: Manning was able to throw for 389 yards, but he had just one touchdown and two interceptions. Losing Julius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders certainly didn't help Manning's cause.
 
11/10/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Broncos QB Peyton Manning wasn't very good early on, throwing as pair of interceptions, but he came back strong and finished the day with five touchdown passes and 340 yards.
Insight: Sure it was Oakland, but even with all his struggles he didn't play in the fourth quarter of the 41-17 blowout win. He's supremely talented and a grinder and that's a great combination.
 
11/3/2014 9:13:00 AM
Description: Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw for 438 yards and two touchdowns, but, and this is hard to believe considering how many yards he threw for, didn't look that good.
Insight: Many of his yards and both his touchdown passes came after the game had already been decided. Of course, fantasy owners don't care when they come, as long as they come.
 
Hot10/24/2014 9:18:00 AM
Description: Just another solid performance from Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday night's 35-21 win over the Chargers.
Insight: Zero interceptions again for the third consecutive game. He could have easily had five touchdowns and 300 yards, but the team didn't need it. His average game of 304 passing yards and 3.14 touchdown passes has his fantasy smiling.
 
Hot10/20/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw for 318 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's 42-17 blowout win over the 49ers.
Insight: He's simply the best at what he does and every fantasy owners would like to have him as their quarterback. He's averaging 308 yards and 3.16 touchdown passes per contest.
 
10/12/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns on Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: He was 22-of-33 for 237 yards and no interceptions. Manning continues to be a dynamic QB1.
