That's right, hold up the number one, because this man here is my No. 1 fantasy quarterback and while he won't get drafted as high as Rodgers, Brees or Schaub, he should be.
Peyton Manning usually doesn't struggle. Peyton Manning finds a way to get everyone involved. Peyton Manning finds a way to win. Peyton Manning puts up numbers consistently year in and year out.
Last year Manning racked up 4,500 yards and 33 touchdowns while only throwing 16 interceptions. He made stars out of Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie and they will only get better.
Anthony Gonzalez was out for the season after injuring his knee in the opening game, but he'll also join Garcon, Collie, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark as Peyton's targets.
While his numbers may not be as flashy as Rodgers, Brees, or Schaub, Peyton Manning makes my list at No. 1 because he is consistent, because he is a winner and because he is Peyton Manning.
If you want to get a guy who will put up numbers every week, draft Peyton.
The only problem with Peyton is that he will hurt you come playoff time because, by the time fantasy playoffs hit he's resting up for his playoffs. So make sure you have a formidable backup and ride Peyton during the regular season and he'll lead you to many wins. You can thank me later.
