Peyton Manning cools off in fantasy in Week 15

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

After throwing nine touchdown passes over the last two weeks, Manning took a step back from his torrid pace. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Manning completed 27-of-41 passes for 289 yards, two touchdowns and one interception on Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers. The Denver Broncos offense was only on the field for 21 minutes in Week 15.

Manning was crushed in the pocket on his lone interception, barely getting the ball away as it popped up and landed in the hands of Thomas Keiser.

Fantasy impact: The Chargers' game plan was a huge success, as they kept Manning off the field for a large part of the game. While owners will likely consider this an "off game" for the star quarterback, he still posted solid numbers. Two touchdowns and 289 yards, that's nothing to scoff at.

Manning posted nine touchdowns over the previous two games, so there's no reason to worry about him. He'll be atop the quarterback rankings again for Week 16 when he faces the Texans.
