The receiving weapons that Manning possesses on this roster are Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Jacob Tamme and Brandon Stokley.
At first glance those names don't seem to be eye-popping, yet Manning finds a way to utilize them in the offense.
Both Tamme and Stokley have played with Manning in Indianapolis, where Tamme showed fine hands and route-running ability while filling in for Dallas Clark.
Last year, Thomas played with Tim Tebow under center, and was able to rack up 204 yards and the game-winning overtime score in a playoff upset over the Steelers. Now with Manning under center, Thomas has already produced for the Broncos offense.
One of the most athletic receivers Manning has played with in his career, Thomas has 13 catches for 188 yards and two scores on 18 targets in only two games. It is clear that he has established himself as Peyton Manning's go-to guy this season.
So as long as Manning is under center, Thomas will be a heavy contributor to this Broncos offense.
Manning will also have Eric Decker contribute, once they get the chemistry going. Decker has fine route-running abilities, something that Manning can utilize. With Decker's ability to run good routes, Manning will trust him in crucial moments and will also target him often.
As an elite quarterback, Manning can utilize all the weapons around him, and get them to contribute to the Broncos offense.
