Peyton Manning should play in Week 11, fantasy owners shouldn't worry

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning should be good to go for Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning does not have a serious ankle injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFLcom. According to the report, Manning will start the team's Week 11 matchup against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, as the injury was a "simple reaggravation" of a previous injury.

Manning was hit low around the knees in Sunday's win over the San Diego Chargers, and was clearly feeling the effects of the injury throughout the remainder of the game. He had a noticeable limp in the fourth quarter, but he did manage to finish out the game, a 28-20 victory for Denver.

After the game, it was revealed that Manning would be getting an MRI on Monday. Manning said he was "pretty sore" following the game. He had a big game either way, throwing for 330 yards and four touchdowns, and even played well late in the game despite his injury.

Fantasy Impact: Manning has never been injury prone, but at his age and with the miles he has on him at this point, any injury is a significant concern. It sounds like he dodged a bullet here. Manning is and will always be a must-start in fantasy until the day he retires, though he has a tough matchup against the Chiefs next week. Start him, unless you hear otherwise from practice in the coming days.
