Peyton Manning rips the Saints defense apart in Week 8: Fantasy Implications

Dustin Bradford

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a fantastic game on Sunday Night Football. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had an immaculate outing in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints. On Sunday Night Football, Manning finished 22-of-30 for 305 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. On primetime, Manning and Broncos steamrolled the Saints, winning convincingly.

It looked like the Peyton Manning of old on Sunday night. He was spreading the ball around, improvising and playing mistake-free. When Manning is hot like he was on primetime, the Broncos are awfully hard to beat.

Fantasy Analysis: Manning has been finding his groove with the Broncos, as they've been playing very efficiently on offense. While fantasy owners were expecting a solid outing from Manning given the horrible state of the Saints defense, this is no fluke.

Manning should continue to perform at a high level. As a chance draft pick by many fantasy players in the mid-rounds, Peyton Manning has proven his fantasy worth tenfold. Continue to start him week to week in all fantasy formats.
