Peyton Manning puts up big fantasy numbers in first half

USA TODAY Sports

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning could do pretty much whatever he wanted in the first half against the Kansas City Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a great start as the Broncos pulled out to a 28-3 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. Manning started 20-for-25 with 251 yards passing and three touchdowns.

Manning is continuing with his stellar comeback season and now has over 4,500 yards passing and 37 touchdowns on the year. The Broncos need to beat the Chiefs to secure the top-seed in the AFC. Last time he faced the Chiefs, Manning was held under 300 yards and only threw for two touchdowns, numbers he already surpassed on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Manning had a better season than anyone realistically expected. People were unsure how he'd bounce back from his neck injury and with a new team, but he has shown that he is an all-time great for a reason.

If you are playing in Week 17, Manning is off to a great start for you.
