Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a rather poor day on Sunday, managing to throw for only 327 yards and just four touchdowns. His near-perfect quarterback rating and 9.6 yards per pass attempt are a huge disappointment from fans and they demand answers.
In reality, Manning is absolutely on fire right now, and currently leads the NFL in passing yardage (1,470 yards) and is well ahead of everyone else in touchdowns (16). Philip Rivers trails him in touchdowns with 11, while Matt Ryan is No. 2 in yards at 1,330. Nobody has a higher completion percentage either, as Manning sits at 75.0 percent.
Manning led the Broncos to a 52-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. Denver is 4-0 under him and he continues to look like he'll never slow down.
Fantasy Impact: Manning has been incredibly productive in fantasy. The question of whether or not he'll even play football again at the beginning of last year is but a distant memory. If you ever sit Manning when he's going to play, then you're bad at fantasy football. Nothing more, nothing less. All's well for Manning's fantasy owners.
