Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was incredible, going 32 of 43 for 400 yards, two touchdowns, and zero turnovers. There’s no doubt who the top quarterback in fantasy is and even in dynasty leagues, Manning should be viewed as a top-five QB. You’ll only get 1-2 years from him but it’s hard to ignore that production.
Patriots receiver Julian Edelman, seemingly the only receiver that did anything decent this year, produced again. He hauled in 10 catches for 89 yards and a touchdown. He finishes the year the team leader in targets, catches, and yards. Tom Brady has already pined for his return. If Edelman is back in New England, he’ll be a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues.
Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas took advantage of an injured Aqib Talib with seven catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. As long as Manning is his quarterback, Thomas is a bona fide WR1.
