Do I drop Peyton Manning?

Postby rdnsnow » Mon Sep 12, 2011 9:27 pm

Hes just taking up a benh spot on my team and because the Colts have not put him in the IR I cant put him on the IR in my league. There are a couple recievers on the FA list I would like to pick up but I need room. The report says hell miss at least 2 months if not the entire season. My QB right now is Sanchez but if Peyton does come back later he would really help my team. So what do you think?

You should post your current team roster and available QBs you can pick up so you can get better advice.
As is, it is hard to suggest what you should do without knowing more about your team.
14tm. PPR+IDP+return-yds. league

Sorry bout that my current team is-

QB-Mark Sanchez
WR-Stevie Johnson
WR-Jordy Nelson
RB-Chris Johnson
TE-Dallas Clark
WR/RB:Michael Turner
BN:Devry Henderson
BN:Ochocinco
BN:Peyton Manning
BN:Julio Jones
K:Nick Folk

I had Sam bradford for week 1 but I drpped him because he was terrible and he got hurt. So I was gonna go with Sanchez but if you think thre is a better matchup at QB ill take any advice. The QBs on FA list are Henne, Fitzpatrick, Kolb, Grossman, Orton, Cassell, Hasselbeck, Collins, Alex Smith. Thanks in advance for any advice.

This number of teams in your league also matters. That will determine the probability of serviceable QB's being on the WW in the event that Sanchez falters or gets hurt.

If it's a keeper league, never drop Peyton. If it's a redraft and you feel comfortable that you could always grab a mid-tier QB, go right ahead.

drop him and pickup Kolb or Fitzpatrick... then play the stronger matchup between either of them and Sanchez week to week.

Manning likely wont be back for at least 3 months, and by then the Colts will likely be out of the playoff picture making it more unclear if they should even risk Mannings career for a few worthless games to end the season.
