While it's true that Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne were All Pro talents, Peyton Manning has also turned guys like Brandon Stokley, Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon into house-hold names and fantasy gold.

Now that Manning is in Denver, can he recapture the magic that carried him to four MVP awards and a Super Bowl title? He has a variety of intriguing options, ranging from the talented Demaryius Thomas, the surprising Eric Decker and his old pal Stokley. In the end, it might be a pair of free agent tight ends that makes all the difference for the Broncos.

Manning won't have the years of reps and preparation with his supporting cast that helped develop the now legendary 'telepathy' that marked his offense in Indianapolis. As Manning rehabs, learns a new system and breaks in new teammates, he'll be seeking to establish that kind of synergy.
