Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning got off to a terrible start in the team's Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons, throwing interceptions on each of the first three drives. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning got off to a terrible start in the team's Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons, throwing interceptions on each of the first three drives. After an impressive Week 1 performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Manning's fantasy owners were riding high. This performance has certainly raised concerns about his long-term fantasy value.

Fantasy Impact: Peyton Manning's fantasy value has taken a complete 360 in the span of a week. The three interceptions were all very poor throws that showed a lack of arm strength on Manning's part. His recovery from injury is expected to have some ups and downs, so patience will be required from fantasy owners. If you drafted Manning, hopefully you have a solid backup.
