Time to Drop Peyton Manning?

Postby kjmiller127 » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:59 am

Worst pick of my draft, especially because I took the chance and took him in the 5th round. Could have been worse if I picked earlier, but I think I'll be ok.

Right now I have Peyton Manning, Eli Manning and Josh Freeman. I start 1 QB each week and have been carrying 3 (Most teams in my league have 3 for some reason) because of Peyton's unknown status.

Is it time to drop Peyton? Matt Hasselback is available so I think I will pick him up, keep 3 qbs for a few weeks until a WR or RB I could use appears.

What do ya think?

I would have taken the chance as well in the 5th round.

You do not need 3 starting QBs and you will never play Hasselbeck over Manning or Freeman. However; I would not drop Peyton Manning yet, his status does not look good but I've watched Favre for years and he has never looked good but ended up playing. Reports always make you think the worst, wait a week or two, we should know by then his status for later in the season. If we know for sure he is coming back that should up his trade value and then you can get rid of him as long as your current QB situation seems to be producing.
