Peyton Manning injury update: QB listed as probable, will play for fantasy owners

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sport

The Broncos quarterback is listed as probable and will suit up on Sunday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Manning took a low shot to his ankles on the final drive of last week's game. He practiced on Friday and is in no danger of missing the key divisional matchup.

Fantasy Impact: Peyton Manning will face his toughest defensive test all year in the Kansas City Chiefs. That doesn't change his fantasy outlook, though. Manning is leading the NFL in completions, passing yards, yards per pass, touchdowns, plays of 20 plus yards and quarterback rating. Game manager Alex Smith is the only other quarterback who has started all nine games and has thrown fewer than Manning's six interceptions. Need I go on?

There is no reason to think that Manning can't continue his elite fantasy campaign against a stout Kansas City defense. There aren't many defenses that have the personnel that can effectively cover the likes of Wes Welker, Demaryius ThomasErick Decker and Julius Thomas on every play. The Chiefs will have to pick their poison as Manning will remain fantasy's number one quarterback in Week 11.
