Peyton Manning injury update: It is not panic time for fantasy owners

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

No, it's not. Peyton Manning is ready for a big divisional game against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He practiced in full this week and the Broncos wasted some ink putting him on the injury report.

Since the loss to the Colts on Oct. 20, he cooled in the following game with three picks against the Washington Redskins, but the four TDs offset that for fantasy owners. Previously, in Week 5 and Week 6, Peyton was on a roll. He had passer ratings of 129.6 and 146.0 with four scores in each game.

Fantasy impact: That point of bringing up Manning's previous two big weeks is because there's a good chance that he'll have that kind of game this week. The Broncos are coming off a bye and Manning should have his heart set on a big win in a divisional game, especially with the Chiefs at 9-0. The former MVP has all of his weapons and he'll be charged with a heavy passing attack this week with the Chargers vulnerable secondary.
