Peyton Manning threw 52 passes against the Texans in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Manning threw for 330 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Texans. The Broncos weren't able to pull off the win, but Manning having to air it out all game helped his fantasy value.

Fantasy Impact: Denver hasn't faced an easy schedule in the early stages of 2012. The schedule should lighten up for Manning and his squad, though, as they move forward, helping his stats along the way. Houston possesses one of the toughest defenses in the league. Manning not turning the ball over once is a promising sign after his three interception performance this past Monday night. Expect him to have a strong performance next week against Oakland.
