2015 Outlook: We tried to tell you: Drafting any fantasy QB (even Peyton!) in the first round is a mistake because you're chasing the prior year's stats -- and historic seasons rarely repeat. In 2014, Manning subtracted 750 yards and 16 TDs from his incredible 2013 campaign. On average, he was the No. 4 overall fantasy pick, but he finished as merely the No. 4 QB. Now he's 39, he has a new coach, and go-to targets Julius Thomas and Wes Welker are gone. No doubt, Manning's drop-off after Week 14 was the result of an injured quad. Still, while we trust his reads and instincts as much as any signal-caller's, last year served as a good reminder: Don't reach for Manning -- or any other QB.
2015 Outlook: Can Osweiler play in the NFL? Nobody really knows: He's been trapped behind Peyton Manning for three years. Osweiler has learned at the foot of the master, but it's hard to imagine the Broncos' offense wouldn't hiccup without its Hall of Fame helmsman. The reason to remember Osweiler's name in 2015, of course, is that Manning is 39 and the quad injury that wrecked his season late last year could be the tip of the iceberg. We think Manning will be fine. But if his end is nigh, at least Osweiler would audition throwing to the likes of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
