Peyton Manning went 24-for-30 passing for 309 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during Monday night's game between the Broncos and the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Manning went 24-for-30 passing for 309 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during the Denver Broncos' comeback win over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 6. The veteran quarterback found Eric Decker, Brandon Stokley and Demaryius Thomas for scores.

Manning has now thrown more than 300 yards in four consecutive games, and has thrown three touchdowns in each of his last three outings. His second-quarter interception, a pick-six, was his first since Week 2 of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: With every passing week, Manning seems to get better and better. He completed a season-high 80 percent of his passes to help lead the Broncos to 35 straight points, erasing a 24-0 deficit. At this point, there is little question that Manning is an every-week starter in most fantasy formats.

The Broncos will rest on a bye in Week 7, disappointing fantasy owners. The team returns in Week 8 to face the New Orleans Saints, in a game that could see Manning lighting up the scoreboard once again to keep pace with Drew Brees and company.
