Peyton Manning is struggling to throw passes beyond 10 yards to his right side, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Manning is struggling to throw passes beyond 10 yards to his right side, ESPN.com reports. According to John Clayton, Manning has had no trouble throwing to his left this past summer, but ran into problems on his opposite side that continue to this day. Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. noted that teams could game plan against the Broncos by forcing Manning to throw to his right more often than he is comfortable doing.

Analysis: Manning isn't 100 percent, that much is obvious, but he has looked sharp for the most part in his preseason appearances and coaches don't seem to be too afraid to let him get roughed up. The veteran needs time to get back into the swing of things, and he may not be the Manning of old, but there is no indication that he will miss any time on the field. It's difficult to predict whether he will be effective enough for fantasy purposes, however, which may be enough to relegate him to the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
