Report: Peyton Manning's thigh injury does not concern Broncos


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) According to league sources, the Broncos have no initial concerns over the thigh injury quarterback Peyton Manning suffered during Sunday’s win over the Chargers, reports NBCSports.com.

Manning briefly left the game late in the second quarter, but was able to start and finish the second half after receiving treatment.

The Broncos play at Cincinnati Monday night so the Broncos' first injury report will not be released until Thursday.


Broncos' Peyton Manning has quiet day Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) With the Broncos relying heavily on their running game, quarterback Peyton Manning had another quiet game in a 22-10 victory over the Chargers Week 15.

Manning was held to one touchdown pass and completed 14 of his 20 passes for 233 yards. Manning connected with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas on a 28-yard pass for his lone touchdown pass. Manning has now played two consecutive games without throwing multiple touchdown passes.

Manning had to leave the game late in the second quarter with a thigh injury, but was able to start the Broncos’ first series in the second half.

The Broncos play at Cincinnati Week 16.

Manning left late in the second quarter with a thigh injury, but was able to start the Broncos’ first series in the second half.


Broncos rule Peyton Manning probable to return Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is probable to return from a thigh injury Sunday against the Chargers, the team announced.

Manning went to the locker room late in the second quarter and had to be replaced by Brock Osweiler.


Broncos' Peyton Manning leaves game to receive IV


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had to the leave Sunday’s game against the Chargers to receive an IV.

Manning left late in the second quarter and was replaced by Brock Osweiler. Manning is reportedly suffering from the flu.


Peyton Manning's recent struggles related to OL issues, not injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning's decreasing workload in the passing game is not due to any injuries or declining skill set, numerous sources with knowledge of the situation told CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

However, it has more to do with the offense needing to play to the strengths of a reshuffled offensive line and provide better pass protection for Manning.

Manning has not complained of any injuries and did not ask the team to go for a more run-centric approach. But since the Broncos lost to the Rams in mid-November, there was a collective understanding the approach had to change. Still, opponents have been unwilling to move their safeties closer to the line of scrimmage despite the Broncos' run game thriving in recent weeks behind the play of C.J. Anderson.

Manning heads into Week 15 at San Diego having been held to less than 200 passing yards in two straight games. He has no passing touchdowns in a 24-17 win Week 14 against the Bills.


Peyton Manning still too good to sit


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) While one week was an aberration, just his second game with less than 200 passing yards in three seasons with the Broncos, two in a row is a trend and legitimate reason for concern over Peyton Manning in Fantasy, especially since he was even less productive in that second game than the first, his streak of 51 straight games with a touchdown pass coming to an end.

Since their embarrassing loss Week 11 at St. Louis, the Broncos have endeavored to become more of a running team, and it's having an impact on Manning's numbers. Of course, their last two opponents have made it easy for them. The Bills scored a couple touchdowns late to make the final score close, but Week 14 was basically a runaway. The Dolphins, who the Broncos faced in Week 12, immediately after their loss to the Rams, put up more of a fight, and lo and behold, Manning had four touchdown passes in that game.

It's possible the Broncos run over every team from here and out, allowing them to keep Manning in their back pocket -- and I'd certainly expect that from them Week 17 against Oakland -- but it's more likely they'll face stiff competition from the Chargers and Bengals the next two weeks, two teams with legitimate playoff aspirations, and have to pass more than they have the last two weeks, especially now that breakout running back C.J. Anderson is contending with an ankle injury.

And with the weapons Manning has at his disposal, he doesn't need to throw 50 times to put up big numbers.


Peyton Manning's 51-game touchdown streak ends Week 14


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning saw his 51-game streak with a touchdown pass end in Sunday's 24-17 win over Buffalo. Manning completed 14 of 20 passes for 173 yards, all season lows.

He threw two interceptions for the fifth time this season and posted a 56.9 passer rating, his lowest in six years.

The Broncos are emphasizing the run lately, and Manning's numbers are suffering. But his team is 10-3, a half-game ahead of New England for the AFC's top seed.

Manning visit the Chargers in Week 15.


Peyton Manning a victim of the game plan


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) Going against a defense that ranks first against the pass and 30th against the run and having recently gotten to know the talents of C.J. Anderson, the Broncos took the path of least resistance Week 13 at Kansas City, putting the ball in Anderson's hands rather than quarterback Peyton Manning's en route to a 29-16 victory.

Manning still had two touchdown passes (including one to Anderson) but only 179 yards, his second-fewest since joining the Broncos in 2012 and just his fourth game with fewer than 200 passing yards since the start of 2010.

Anderson, meanwhile, ran for 168 yards on 32 carries, giving him two straight games with at least 160 rushing yards. The Broncos never relied so heavily on the running game when Montee Ball or Ronnie Hillman was leading it, but considering the result, you can't really blame them for doing so in this one.

The Broncos host the Bills in Week 14, who rank fifth against the pass but only seventh against the run, so presumably, they'll revert to a more balanced approach in that one. Because Manning is the type of player who transcends matchups anyway, you shouldn't pay a second thought to sitting him in Fantasy.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning has quiet day in Week 13 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed just 17 of his 34 pass attempts for 179 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 29-16 win over the Chiefs in Kansas City in Week 13.

It was clear from the outset that the Broncos would lean heavily on the running game, and after Manning threw two touchdowns in the first quarter, the ground game went to work, with the team's top two backs combining for 42 carries. It was the first time this season Manning didn't throw for at least 200 yards, and his long of 23 yards also easily represented a season low, but his second straight pick-free game pushes his TD:INT ratio to 36:9 to go with 3,737 passing yards in 12 games. He'll square off with the Bills in Week 14.


Broncos' Peyton Manning throws four touchdowns to beat Miami


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning lit up the Dolphins to lead the Broncos to a 39-36 win Sunday.

Manning started off slow, but finished 28 of 35 for 257 yards and four touchdowns. Without Julius Thomas, Manning turned to Demaryius Thomas as his red zone target with the pair hooking up on three scores. He also connected with Wes Welker for a late game touchdown. It was Manning’s fourth game of the season throwing at least four touchdown passes. Manning did not throw an interception for the first time since Week 8.

The Broncos next play Sunday at Kansas City.


Broncos QB Manning has rare dud in St. Louis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has enjoyed many memorable games in his brilliant career, but his performance Sunday in St. Louis wasn't one of them.

It's not often a quarterback leads his team to just seven points and still throws for 389 yards, but Manning did just that in Week 11. He completed 34 of 54 passes and just one touchdown - a 42-yard strike to a wide-open Emmanuel Sanders late in the second quarter. The Broncos were shut out in the second half for the first time since 2009.

Manning, who did exceed 3,000 yards on the year for the 16th time, also threw two interceptions and was uncharacteristically inaccurate on several throws. He will try to regroup next Sunday when the team returns home to face Miami.


Report: Broncos planning for Peyton Manning to play in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Broncos are expecting and planning for quarterback Peyton Manning to play at least one more season, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport.

Manning wants to hold all the passing records, and he needs at least one more season to be the NFL leader in career wins and yards, which are currently held by Brett Favre. 

Favre has 71,838 passing yards and 186 wins. Manning entered play Week 11 with 67,876 passing yards and 174 wins.

It appears, however, Manning's plans to return in 2015 could change, if the Broncos win the Super Bowl this season, according to Rapoport.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning fires five TD passes vs. Oakland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put together another vintage performance, firing five touchdown passes in three quarters of work Sunday afternoon against the Raiders in Week 10.

Manning hooked up with C.J. Anderson for a 51-yard score and Emmanuel Sanders for a 32-yard strike in the second quarter. He fired three touchdowns in the third quarter before his day was over, including two to Julius Thomas (10, 32 yards). Manning found Sanders for a 15-yard score with 1:01 remaining in the third quarter to give his team a 31-point advantage. With the game well in hand, the Broncos kept Manning on the bench in favor of Brock Osweiler.

Manning compiled 340 yards through the air while completing 31 of 44 pass attempts. He added five touchdowns and two interceptions, registering a 111.9 passer rating in a 41-17 victory. He has passed for 2,912 yards with 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

The Broncos will face the Rams in St. Louis Week 11.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning tosses two touchdowns Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tossed two touchdowns Week 9 against the Patriots.

Manning completed 34 of 57 passes for 438 yards and two touchdowns. It wasn't all perfect, as Manning also threw two interceptions. He also gained 3 rushing yards. Manning had some trouble early, struggling during the first quarter. On the first drive of the second quarter, Manning threw his first interception. Manning was able to turn things around in the second half, tossing both of his touchdowns. It was too little too late, as the Broncos never really threatened New England late.

Manning will look for more Week 10 against the Raiders.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning registers 90th career three-TD game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning registered another three-touchdown performance for the 90th time in his career, leading his team to a 35-21 victory over the Chargers in Week 8.

All of Manning's touchdown passes went to Emmanuel Sanders. He found Sanders for a 2-yard strike in the second quarter, followed by a 31-yard strike with 39 seconds remaining in the first half. On the opening drive of the third quarter, Manning hooked up with Sanders for a 2-yard touchdown strike.

He compiled for 286 yards through the air while completing 25 of 35 pass attempts. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 124.2 passer rating. Manning has 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions over his last three games. He's cracked the 300-yard mark just once in those three games.

He'll look to keep rolling Week 9 at New England.


No risk with Peyton Manning Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) It goes without saying, to be certain, but we'll say it anyways: start Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Thursday night games have a tendency to suppress offense, but that simply has not been the case for Manning in his career. If you'll believe it, Manning has actually somehow been more effective in Thursday games, averaging 300.5 passing yards with 35 touchdowns in 11 games. That comes out to a Fantasy scoring average of 30.2 points per game, including 82 combined points in two games a year ago.

This is a lot of words to tell you something you didn't need to be told. Manning is rolling, and nothing is going to slow him down; not rain, not sleet, not snow, and certainly not a short week. Keep him in your lineup in all leagues for Thursday's matchup. 


Matchup means nothing for Peyton Manning


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) It's not like any Fantasy owners were debating whether or not to start Peyton Manning in Week 7, but a few probably had at least some minor concerns about the way he'd perform against a 49ers defense that entered the day ranked second against the pass.

And he reminded them few why he's the last thing they should worry about.

You don't set the career record for passing touchdowns by shrinking against the tougher opponents. It's not like this 49ers defense is something historically good. This Broncos offense, and certainly Manning himself, is. He hasn't gone without a touchdown pass in a game since 2010, and he's had less than two only once in the last two seasons. Maybe the four touchdown passes he had Sunday would have been too much to ask of him, but given how consistently he's done it over his career, two should be the minimum expectation for him every week, regardless of his opponent. And you'd never sit an assured two touchdowns.

Of course, this advice is probably less useful in traditional Fantasy Football leagues (since again, no one was actually sitting Manning) than weekly contests like FanDuel and the like. Manning will always cost you a pretty penny, but you won't find a safer bet either. He may have unfavorable matchups against the third-ranked Chargers pass defense in Week 8 and the first-ranked Patriots pass defense in Week 9, but don't let that scare you away from him.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning throws four TDs. sets career record


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning shined Sunday night, completing 22 of his 26 pass attempts for 318 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 42-17 blowout win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Manning entered the game just two touchdowns behind record holder Brett Favre on the all-time passing-touchdown list and quickly fired two scores in the first quarter. He connected on a short touchdown with Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter to break Favre's record and added a second touchdown to Thomas on a 40-yard strike early in the second half. The Broncos decided to take the star quarterback out after he led the team to a 32-point lead in the third quarter.

Manning has been as good as ever en route to breaking the record, and each of his scores moving forward will extend his lead in career passing touchdowns. He's passed for 1,848 yards and 19 touchdowns in six games this season while throwing just three interceptions. Manning will square off with the division-rival Chargers on Thursday.


49ers CB Chris Cook (hamstring) to miss remainder of Week 7


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 49ers cornerback Chris Cook has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Broncos with a hamstring injury, the team announced. The injury leaves the 49ers with only three cornerbacks on a night where Denver quarterback Peyton Manning has thrown four touchdowns in a little more than one half.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning breaks TD record in first half Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning became the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes Sunday, connecting with Demaryius Thomas on an eight-yard score in the first half of Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

Manning tied Brett Favre with his second first-quarter touchdown pass and then delivered a strike to Thomas for No. 509 late in the second quarter. Manning just seems to be getting better as he ages, and he's up to 18 touchdowns with only three interceptions through five-and-a-half games this season. He should have plenty more scores left in his arm before he decides to call it a career.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning ties record with 508th TD pass


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tied the record for career passing touchdowns in the first quarter Sunday, connecting with Wes Welker for his 508th career touchdown pass in Denver's Sunday night battle against San Francisco.

Manning hooked up with Emmanuel Sanders on a three-yard score early in the first quarter before connecting with Welker on a 39-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown that was confirmed upon review. He's completed all seven of his pass attempts for 111 yards in the first quarter. Tied with Brett Favre on the all-time list after the second touchdown, Manning has three-plus quarters to break the record Sunday.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning has touchdown trifecta in win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Broncos explosive quarterback Peyton Manning didn't enjoy one of his typical big-yard blowouts Sunday against the host Jets, but he was plenty efficient in yet another victory.

Manning completed 22 of 33 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns to the Thomases - two to Julius and one to Demaryius. He began his afternoon with a 54-yard pass-and-catch to the latter and threw two scoring strikes in the second quarter to give his team control. He added a 4-yard touchdown to Julius Thomas midway through the third quarter before his team staved off a comeback.

The veteran threw just 13 passes in the second half for 64 yards as the Broncos stayed mostly on the ground.

Manning and the Broncos will host San Francisco next Sunday.


Broncos QB Peyton Manning: Time for Ronnie Hillman to step up


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Broncos star quarteback Peyton Manning has put the onus of responsibility on teammate and running back Ronnie Hillman.

Hillman appears destined to serve as the featured back Sunday against the host Jets in the wake of an injury that has knocked out Montee Ball.

"When you're running out there in pregame warmups as a starter it's a different helmet you wear," Manning told the Denver Post. "So we're counting on hm."

Hillman performed well after replacing Ball in Week 5. He rushed for 64 yards on 15 carries.


Peyton Manning distances himself from the pack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did more than just set a career high when he threw for 479 yards and four touchdowns Week 5 against Arizona. He also confirmed that he's far and away the best quarterback in Fantasy.

It wasn't so clear coming into the season. He was drafted first at the position, yes, but not so far ahead of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. But with Brees stuck on two touchdown passes every week, and Rodgers (along with others like Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck) plagued by inconsistency, Manning has only widened the gap at the top.

Coming into the season, there was some debate about whether or not he really deserved a first-round pick, but as the clear standout at the highest-scoring position in Fantasy, he's pretty much ended that debate. Be thankful for what you have in him.
