In my league, C-Pepp has 133 points so far and Manning has 132.
Yes, but C-Pepp has had his bye week already. Speaking as a Manning owner, though, I do like his consistency. His TDs per game: 2,2,5,2,3. Culpepper's TDs per game: 5,1,3,5. Well, OK, Culpepper only had one game with 1 TD, but surely he can't keep having 5 TD weeks!
One thing that separates Manning from Culpepper is their team: it seems like Edge is much more likely to get the TDs (and runs) if Indy is ahead in the game. Manning has 10 1st half TDs this year and only 4 2nd half TDs. I haven't done the same analysis for C-Pepp, but my hunch is that it is more even than that since they don't run the ball as much.
