Peyton owners to eliminate many teams from the playoffs this week (1 Viewer)

Peyton Manning has been awesome throughout his career when playing in moderate temps and in the cozy confines of a dome.

The weather in Denver Thursday evening is expected to be clear with temps in the upper 30s, a mild breeze and 0% chance of rain. You could not ask for better conditions.

San Diego gives up a ton of points to QBs, on the road and in what should be a very high scoring game.

It was a nice ride for us non Peyton owners ... but it is all coming to an inevitable ending @ the hands of the best fantasy player this season.

DEN, the over, and Out

 
Lol. You know you just gave birth to tHe granddaddy of all fantasy counter-jinxes. Manning will have 240 and 1-2 and it will be viewed as an epic collapse by all his owners expecting 35 this week.

 
This won't matter. The difference being the first post he was serious and was dead wrong. This one monk is just being an ###

 
Just as you predicted. Peyton eliminated from our playoffs this week. Sitting in the number one slot with a bye I was fearful of having to face him. Thankfully McCown was the better QB this week.

Ditto. Peyton averted.

This is very close to exactly what happened. Well done.

 
So does the guy on some other board who predicted a bad game look like a total genius now?

Man, after one drive this looked like a 5 TD game. But then San Diego got the ball, and decided to run all the clock. How many possessions were there in this game? Seemed like about half the possessions Denver averages per game throughout the year.

 
I don't think this is going to affect as many people as we'd think. Peyton's weapons have been highly successful and likely owned by semi-finalists as well, probably not all on the same team, and I have a feeling Andre Caldwell wasn't one of them started. For example, my Peyton went up against his Decker. I'm OK with the results there.

Aww man, I forgot to count Julius Thomas' 49 yards when I was looking at my crystal ball. So close....

This is definitely true in one of my leagues as the final four team had three of the teams saturated with all the Broncos players going H2H with one another. All it really did was start the weekend off with 30-34 scores instead of 48-52. Maybe the one team in our playoffs that doesn't have the Broncos players might have a chance now.

Yup. Had Manning up against Decker, J. Thomas, Ball and Prater. Even with that last minute FG, I'm still up by 1 point with only 1 player done, while he has 4 done.

This was a win for me. If I lose, it will not be because of Manning, but because the rest of my team will have played poorly.

 
Im down by 40 in week2 of a playoff H2H.

Things couldnt have gone any worse for a Demaryius Thomas / Antonio Gates owner.


WHAT ON FANTASY EARTH HAPPENED? Peyton needs to stop getting too cute...ala thinking too much, and just throw to his studs. 80% of the snaps he doesnt even look at D Thomas. So frsutrating. Studs are studs, throw them the ball. See what Gordon does in Cleveland? And yeah, everyone and their granmother knows hes getting all the looks. Holy crow, thanks Broncos offense for a huge letdown....no thanks to any miraculous help by Gates.

ok, rant over.

Im sure you weren't cursing the Broncos offense every other week of the year. Peyton always has spread the ball out to every option available.
