2014 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.

Comment: Manning's arm strength appears a bit shaky. He's still a solid QB1 optino but I'm backing off slightly and we'll see how he performs in the third preseason game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Gary Kubiak, new head coach of Broncos     -- Mon Jan 19 9:30 am --

Four-year deal
Gary Kubiak has agreed to become the head coach of the Denver Broncos, the team announced Monday. Kubiak's deal is for four years, according to multiple reports. He spent the past season as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator. Before joining the Ravens' staff, Kubiak had served as head coach of the Houston Texans. The Broncos will introduce him at a Tuesday afternoon news conference. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Kubiak is a west coast offense guy so melding with QB Peyton Manning, assuming he returns, may be a challenge. Kubiak likes to run play-action fakes and rollouts which isn't what Manning is used to. It's quite possible that Kubiak will defer to Manning's style of offense for the upcoming season.
Broncos, HC John Fox part ways     -- Mon Jan 12 6:00 pm --

Four-year runs ends with a 46-18 record
The Denver Broncos and coach John Fox have mutually agreed to part ways, team sources confirmed to The move comes a day after the Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs by the Indianapolis Colts, and a year after the team's first appearance in a Super Bowl since John Elway, now the team's general manager, retired as quarterback. The separation ends Fox's four-year tenure with the Broncos that saw the coach miss part of last season as he recovered from a heart procedure. Fox led Denver to AFC West titles in each of his four seasons as coach. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Jay Glazer was out in front of this yesterday, mentioning that Fox could be coaching for his job against the Colts. Elway's moves in free agency this past offseason suggested the Broncos expect to win a Super Bowl in the next 2-3 years, so the disappointment of coming up short again this weekend was enough for Denver to make the move. Expect OC Adam Gase to be one of the frontrunners for the job in an effort to entice Peyton Manning to return for at least one more year, although Elway might opt to go with someone with head-coaching experience.
Injury Peyton's been playing with torn quad     -- Mon Jan 12 10:03 am --

Injury occured Week 13 against San Diego

FF Today's Take: Manning's statistical decline begin two weeks prior when he threw for 179 yards against Kansas City (Wk 11) and 173 yards against Buffalo (Wk 12). Manning was noncommittal on his future after yesterday's loss to the Colts voicing health and coach concerns as reasons for his hesitation.
Injury Peyton Manning dealing with thigh injury     -- Mon Dec 15 4:35 pm --

Broncos unconcerned about availability for Week 16
After Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made an early exit to the locker room before halftime, the team ultimately announced that he was probable to return to Sundayís win over the Chargers with a thigh injury. Per a league source, the Broncos have no lingering concern about said thigh injury. The team believes the thigh problem was related to Peytonís illness, and that it wonít affect his preparation for next Mondayís game against the Bengals. His decision to head to the locker room early was aimed at getting the thigh worked on by the strength coach and trainer at halftime. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: It appears Manning was dealing with an illness this weekend as well and the thigh injury was in some way associated with it, causing him to leave the field late in the first half in order to get worked on by the trainer. Manning returned for the second half of Week 15 without incident. A much bigger concern for his owners is the devotion the Broncos have shown to their C.J. Anderson-led ground game. For now, consider Manning a low-end QB1 for Denver's Week 16 matchup with the Bengals.
Injury Julius Thomas limited in practice     -- Wed Dec 3 7:45 pm --

Remains optimistic about playing against Bills
''Julius is one of our top players and when you have one of your top players go out, you are going to miss him,'' Peyton Manning said Wednesday. ''We hope to get Julius back out there. There's no question when he's out there he makes a difference, he makes a lot of plays for us.'' Thomas leads the league with a dozen TD catches even though he hasn't scored since Nov. 9. He was limited at practice Wednesday and hopes to return to action this weekend against the Buffalo Bills (7-5). (AP)

FF Today's Take: The Broncos' week 14 opponent, Buffalo, ranks fifth against the pass this season and Denver has rekindled their running game of late. Nonetheless, it will be tough to sit Julius Thomas if he is cleared to play so check back later in the week for an update on his playing status.
