Peyton Manning Team in Your League (1 Viewer)

I'm in two $$$ leagues... One Peyton Manning team looks nearly unbeatable, the other somehow is terrible - I would expect the terrible team to be an anomaly.

Peyton was probably taken in the 3rd to 5th depending on the size of the league... For a guy that regularly produces stat lines of 350/3, I feel like owners who drafted him are at a huge advantage.

Curious, is the team with Peyton in your league dominating?

 
He's on my team in one league and I am 7-0 despite starting David Wilson or Chris Ivory in 3 of the first four games. I snagged Julius Thomas off the WW week 1 which compounds the Peyton scoring. Having ADP, AJ Green, Marshal, Blackmon (and Julio for part of the season, before trading him for VJax) has also helped.

Is this redraft? If so, I assume you drafted number 1 for ADP - How do you wind up with Julio, Marshall, & AJ - Did Marshall fall to you in the 4th? I thought my receivers were stacked with Dez, Marshall, & Blackmon, but wow - that is a nice team you have. Anything short of title with that roster will be a disappointment.

 
In my main league, the team that drafted him also took Spiller and Lamar Miller plus some other disappointing guys. He ended up trading Manning a couple weeks ago for Brady, Dez and Woodhead. The team that now has Manning still isn't much better.

Yes, he's 7-0.

:bowtie:

 
In my main money redraft I won him at 29 of 200 at auction and am doing well at 6-1 although losing Julio and being without Roddy all season mean I'm less than sure of turning the good start into a title .

In my keeper league the Manning owner is 7-0 and far and away the number one points scorer.

 
The Peyton team in my league is 4-3 (T-2nd). That team should be better since they have Moreno and J Thomas, but he went CJ Spiller and MJD at 1.2 and 2.9 (10 teams).

Peyton team is 7-0 in my league, but third in total points. (Naturally, as a card-carrying FBG, my team is first in total points, but alas, I'm only 4-3.)

The Peyton team has faced the 2nd fewest points. while my team has faced the 2nd highest points. Swap our schedules and we're both 5-2.

 
6-1 & 5-2.

6-1 owner lost in week 6 to an owner with big weeks out of unlikely players all at the same time.

5-2 owner lost in week 2 to a 30-point game from M. Lynch and a 25pt game from Dez Bryant, then in week 6 with Peyton's down week and the opponent having Moreno go for 28, Arian Foster for 22 and Jordy Nelson for 17.

His mom and grandma are part of the league.
 
Peyton team in my league is #1 in scoring, but in a three-way tie for second at 4-3, despite also having McCoy, Jordy, and the Chiefs. He traded me Manning on Saturday......for Doug Martin. It was a big trade, so he got some other parts, but needless to say, his team is now decidedly on the downswing.

I would report how my team is now, but I traded Manning away the day I received him.

Who are you playing with? He traded Manning for Martin with some other lower level players? Then after ridding your team of Martin and landing gold, you trade it away?

Is this league for money? If so, can I join?

 
The Manning owner in my league is 4-3 and is really only 50/50 for week 8. He went second in the draft, picked Doug Martin in round one, Chris Johnson in round two and Peyton in round three. Hakeem Nicks, then Welker, then Steve Johnson, Greg Olsen and Andre Brown. To say he didn't draft well is a bit of an understatement (though with guys like Martin, it wasn't really his fault).

 
I own him in one league. I'm 7-0 and tops in points.

In my big money home league, the team he is on is 6-1, and tops in points as well.

Last week, I offered this team above Marshall, Harry Douglas, Mike Wallace, Brady, & Cincy for Manning & Sea...

He is currently starting Jerome Simpson, Durham, Sidney Rice, & Austin Pettis and he wouldn't even consider.

I think if you are in a league where somehow the Manning team isn't good, that is a great situation... Def don't want to face him in the playoffs and lose in a game that he throws 400/5

Our Manning owner is 7-0 most points scored by a large margin averaging almost 120 ppg, with the league avg 92 ppg. To show how big the gap is the 2nd place scorer is averaging only 105 ppg.

I remember after the draft thinking his team was pretty weak sauce - with Manning and Welker and Graham as his only studs....I mean his rbs are DMC, Alfred Morris and MJD for God's sakes. Now that Graham is a little dinged he may come back to the pack - but Manning is a witch.

First trade was:

Martin, Rice, Fitz, Pierce, Eli

for

Peyton, Nelson, Colston, J Rodgers, Dunbar

Seems lopsided, but Martin is keepable next year at $37, where comparable RBs were going for $60+.

Second trade was:

Peyton/Decker

for

Romo/AP

You'll say I didn't sell high enough, and I can't really argue with you there. But AP can be kept next year for $41, so I'm okay with the overall deal.

Manning, Graham, Welker - Ouch, that is a tough team to beat.

Even though our league is not TE mandatory - TEs are considered WRs....he still is a stud.

Sometimes you play to win this season - Most teams with Manning should fall into that bucket - that trade is crazy - you gave up 2 ####ty rbs, a ####ty wr, a ####ty qb, & a handcuff to that ####ty rb for peyton and jordy - That seems like a grandslam.

 
The Manning owner in one of my other leagues also has Jamaal Charles and McCoy (auction league), but whiffed on his value WRs, so is sitting at 4-3 with 3rd most points. Deeper rosters and 4 pt TDs hurt him a little, but he is really top heavy.

 
Have manning in ine league and I'm sitting in 2nd place at 6-1 with most points.

In my other league the Peyton owner is in 1st with most tp by far.

 
Funny. In one league the PM team was riding high, 4-1. They got cute and traded him for ADP + etc etc etc., now they're 4-3. Actually this trade appears to have hurt both teams.

I was the one who got the deal done, so of course I agree with you, but hey, people fall for name brand talent all the time. And Martin and Ray Rice have been weekly fixtures on buy low columns, so I can't say I really blame him.

 
The Manning team in my 12 team 6 point passing TD redraft league picked him at 1.4 and everyone laughed. In hindsight, it was a brilliant move, and much better than my Doug Martin 1.2 pick, for example.

Mercifully, the rest of the owner's draft sucked, and their team is 2-5 in 9th place, and most likely won't make the playoffs. Lucky me!

 
I have him in one league (along with Charles) and am 6-1. The Peyton owner in the other league I play in is 4-3. He was undefeated until Julio got hurt.

 
He went 1.10 in my 12 team $ redraft. I traded him Brady, D Martin and Garcon for him 2 weeks ago. I still have some climbing to do but it made me an instant contender.

 
Had him and was 6-0 until I met the other 6-0 team in our league, now 6-1 but still looking strong. I think almost every league the team is at least 5-2 or better with him, it's almost impossible not to do well.

keeper league: Peyton owner 5-2 & most points, having both losses the last two weeks after Julio went down

2 QB league: Peyton owner tied for best record and has the most points, but hasn't pulled that far away from the pack.

redraft league: Peyton owner 3-4 despite 2nd most points. He's had losses by 2 & 5 points, but also a lot of feast or famine in his lineup.

 
The lone female owner in our league has him, Calvin Johnson, D. Thomas, Jordan Cameron, and a few other studs.

She is emasculating us week in and week out, been the top scoring team at least 3 weeks.

 
The Peyton owner in my main league is 2-5. He drafted Peyton 2.08.

Some guys from that league, who have been playing for years, still insist that taking Peyton in the second round is pure genius and there is no way that I can blame the guy's poor record on taking a QB too early.

In my main league:

QB, in the order drafted: Team Record

Drew Brees: 3-4
Aaron Rodgers: 2-5
Peyton Manning: 2-5
Tom Brady: 3-4
Cam Newton: 4-3
Robert Griffin: 3-4
Colin Kaepernick: 4-3
Matt Ryan: 6-1
Russell Wilson: 1-6
Matthew Stafford: 5-2
Andrew Luck/Tony Romo: 6-1
Michael Vick: 3-4
(I'm Stafford)

Edit: To be fair, the Peyton owner literally has 100+ points against more than anybody else, and just lost to me last week (by 1 point) even though he scored the 3rd most points of the week. (12 team league)

they are two of the six owners in the league :)

 
it doesn't take peyton manning to win, in one league the manning team is 3-4, and my team with Kaepernick is 6-1... QB is not the only part of the equation.

I'm not saying that - what I am saying is the guy who took Peyton has a huge advantage over every other owner, even Brees or Rodgers... You start Kraep, he starts Peyton - off the bat he was a 20 point head start, if this owner drafted even somewhat intelligently, he should be dominant.

I see what you are getting at, I totally agree having Peyton this year is like walking into a matchup with 20 points before you start lol

I did the math, and in my league's scoring format, having Peyton gives you a +8.8pt advantage over the average QB1 any given week.
