Denver Broncos Peyton Manning is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. His ankle injury caused him to miss practice on Wednesday, but he will play after full participation for the rest of the week.
It was quite a circus with the news of Peyton sitting out of practice, but he dismissed any concern with his laid-back press conference on Thursday. Of course, Peyton missing the year two seasons ago may have fueled this issue, but there has been no word of his neck injury.
There's no doubt who the MVP is so far this season. Manning leads all quarterbacks in passer rating and is at the top of the league in passing scores and yards.
Fantasy impact: The Redskins are ranked 30th in yards per attempt allowed and they're going to be in trouble on Sunday. Owners of just about any Bronco should put their guy out there and have high expectations. They should be firing on all cylinders following their first loss of the season. Manning is our top option for fantasy points.
