Peyton Manning (thigh) was given a day of rest on Thursday.

Manning was officially "limited" even though he spent the day getting treatment. Twitter panic is already ensuing, but Manning's Week 16 status is in zero doubt. Today is the Broncos' first practice of the week since they're playing on Monday Night Football. Manning will be back for Friday's session, and can confidently be fired up as a QB1 for the fantasy finals.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis believes Peyton Manning will play out his contract with the Broncos.

This would be welcome news for Dynasty owners of Peyton, Demaryius Thomas, and Emmanuel Sanders. Manning is under contract through 2016 with base salaries of $19 million the next two seasons. Although his play has begun to tail off toward the end of the past two years, Peyton has remained an "elite" quarterback in favorable weather. Manning is currently on pace for 42 touchdowns and 4,735 yards, both big drop-offs from last year's stats (55, 5,477) but still top-shelf fantasy QB1 numbers.

Profootballtalk reports the Broncos are not concerned about Peyton Manning's (thigh) availability for Week 16 against the Bengals.

Manning was battling flu-like systems coming into Sunday's game against the Chargers and strained his thigh late in the second quarter. The team is chalking it up to dehydration and his illness, which makes plenty of sense since Manning needed an IV ahead of the game. Manning has an extra day to get ready with the Broncos and Bengals playing the final Monday night game of 2014.
Dec 15 - 8:36 AM

Peyton Manning completed 14-of-20 passes for 233 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 22-10 Week 15 at San Diego.

Just before the game started, word broke that Manning was fighting flu-like symptoms and had received an IV. He also tweaked his thigh late in the second quarter and had to miss one series before emerging after halftime. Still, the culprit for Peyton's box score was once again play selection as the Broncos ran the ball 35 times. Riding C.J. Anderson and an underrated yet elite defense, they've called 105 runs against 78 passes over the last three games. We can't rule out another run-heavy approach at Cincy next week, but we can expect better red-zone efficiency. Connor Barth has 11 field goals over the last three games while Manning has three touchdowns during that span.

Peyton Manning (thigh) returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers at the beginning of the third quarter.

Manning is sick with flu-like symptoms and also appeared to strain a quad late in the second quarter. Brock Osweiler handled the final drive of the first half. However, Manning is going to gut it out.
Dec 14 - 5:35 PM

Coach John Fox insisted "our passing game is fine" when asked about Peyton Manning's recent lack of production.

The Broncos have faced four very good defenses over the last four weeks (STL, MIA, KC, BUF). They've still gone 3-1 during that span, mostly riding the running game and a very underrated defense while Manning has posted a meager 7:4 TD-to-INT ratio. "You never know we might put our foot on the gas and throw it 50 times," Fox said. "I can't really predict what's going to happen because a lot of it is based on what an opponent does." We'd expect the pendulum to swing back to the pass game quickly, leaving Manning as a top-3 quarterback option at San Diego in Week 15.

Dec 9 - 8:38 AM

Peyton Manning completed 14-of-20 passes for 173 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 24-17 Week 14 win over the Bills.

Manning's 51-game touchdown streak that began in 2010 is over, three short of the record set by Drew Brees between 2009-12. He also posted his lowest quarterback rating in six years at 56.9. Still, the Broncos were able to coast to a win on the back of their quietly elite defense and another strong performance from C.J. Anderson, who punched in three short touchdowns. The Broncos are taking an increasingly run-heavy, ball-control approach these days, but we wouldn't shy away from Manning as a top-3 option at San Diego in Week 15. The last time these two teams met, Manning attempted 35 passes and netted 286 yards with three touchdowns.
Dec 7 - 7:14 PM

Peyton Manning completed 17-of-34 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

Manning was held in check outside of two first-quarter touchdowns. He averaged just 5.3 yards-per-attempt and fumbled on the opening drive of the second half. Manning's first touchdown was a 23-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas, and he later connected on a check down to C.J. Anderson from 15 yards out. He's now on pace for 4,983 yards, 48 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. Manning remains a top-three option despite another tough matchup in Week 14 against Buffalo.
Dec 1 - 12:03 AM

Peyton Manning completed 28-of-35 passes for 257 yards and four touchdowns in Denver's 39-36, Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Manning and the Broncos got off to another slow start, but gradually kicked it into gear as the Dolphins' defense got more and more injured. The four-score day was Manning's fourth of the season, and leaves him at 34 through 11 games played. That puts him on pace for 49, which would tie Manning's 2004 mark for third-most all time. Manning has a tough Week 13 road matchup in the Chiefs, but will be a top-three QB1, as usual.
Nov 23 - 7:40 PM

Peyton Manning completed 34-of-54 passes for 389 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Broncos' 22-7, Week 11 stunning loss to the Rams.

The Rams thoroughly and surprisingly dominated this one from start to finish. They sacked Manning twice, and pummeled him into the turf a handful of times in total, with Robert Quinn whipping LT Ryan Clady on a consistent basis. The Rams were also credited with 12 pass breakups, as they were swarming the ball. The defensive backs were hunting receivers, drilling them at every opportunity, and Emmanuel Sanders was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Julius Thomas exited in the first quarter with an ankle injury, so Manning only had Demaryius Thomas and C.J. Anderson to throw to for much of the day. Manning should be fine for Week 12 against Miami, but he needs one of Julius or Sanders to get healthy. The seven points were the fewest of the Peyton Manning era in Denver.
Nov 16 - 4:03 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "expect" and are "planning" on Peyton Manning playing "at least" one more season.

Per RapSheet, Manning wants to "hold all records" before he retires. He needs another season to set the all-time quarterback marks for wins and passing yards. Brock Osweiler's frustration will continue. Rapoport leaves the door open for Manning to "walk into the sunset" if the Broncos win the Super Bowl, but we're not buying it. Peyton loves his stats. If Denver wins SB49, it might actually give Manning more incentive to play another year.
Nov 16 - 9:48 AM

Peyton Manning completed 31-of-44 passes for 350 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions as the Broncos rolled the Raiders in Week 10.

Manning started the game slowly as the Raiders generated pressure and batted down at least four first-half passes at the line of scrimmage. Manning put Denver on top for good with a second-quarter checkdown pass to C.J. Anderson, which Anderson took 51 yards to the house. A possession later, Manning dropped a dime to Emmanuel Sanders down the right sideline for a 32-yard touchdown. Peyton's third TD came on a 10-yard "rub" slant to Julius Thomas, and his fourth on a 32-yard catch-and-run to Orange Julius again. Touchdown No. 5 was good to Sanders, again, from 15 yards away. The Raiders simply don't have enough talent to hang with a team like the Broncos. Manning's TD-to-INT ratio on the season improves to 29:7. Denver heads to St. Louis for Week 11.
Nov 9 - 6:39 PM

Peyton Manning completed 34-of-57 passes for 438 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Denver's 43-21, Week 9 loss to the Patriots.

Manning's numbers were inflated by the Broncos' confusing insistence on leaving their starters in the fourth quarter of a game that had been long out of hand. That is not to say Manning hadn't been having success through the air all day, however. His first pick was a first-half pass where he didn't see Rob Ninkovich dropping back into coverage, but the second was essentially a Wes Welker drop. The Broncos moved the ball, but were just 3-of-11 on third down, and 0-of-4 on fourth. With half the season now in the books, Manning is on pace for a typically record-setting 5,144 yards and 48 touchdowns. He's going to immolate the Raiders in Week 10.
