The last time we saw Manning was not a good outing.  Peyton will look to avenge that game all this year.  I put Peyton at the top of my draft list, but I don't really want any more Colts on my fantasy team.  The reason is there are just so many weapons at peyton's disposal that the fantasy points are going to be spread really thin.  Addai is not going to get the carries that he has in the past. Brown and Hart will get their share.

There are so many really good receivers that Peyton can choose from. Receiving yards and touchdowns are going to be down individually for the whole of the Colt receiving corp.  The Colt O is going to be something to be feared.

I would look at drafting the Colt D.  The rookies last year stepped up and they have a 12 year veteran coming from PITT to teach the young corners some tricks of the trade.

Sanders is healthy until he is not, and the new system that they have in place really suits the line and the backers.  

I say again--- DON"T draft the offensive horses of old.  Just stick with Peyton.
