|Brock Osweiler to make second straight start|
On the QB1 radar against New England

FFToday'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.

FFToday's Take: Sanders (ankle) didn't look comfortable during pregame warmups and has been ruled out. Demaryius Thomas should be the most targeted wideout for new QB Brock Osweiler.
| Peyton Manning ruled out for Week 11|
Brock Osweiler will draw start against Chicago
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 16, 4:30 pm
|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. (NFL.com)|
FFToday'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.

Brock Osweiler replaced Manning in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 16, 11:30 am
|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)|
FFToday'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.
