2012 Fantasy Football Peyton Manning: Draftable?

Many people are frustrated with Peyton Manning since he wasn't worth anything in fantasy football leagues in 2011.  Many people used an early round draft pick hoping Peyton Manning would carry them to fantasy football championships and got burned.  People will remember that going into the 2012 fantasy football drafts.

Well, 2012 is not 2011 and Peyton Manning is now on the Denver Broncos; he wants to show Indy that they made a huge mistake sending him away.  Peyton Manning had his choice of many teams to play for, but ultimately choose to play for Denver in 2012.

You can expect Eric Decker and Demaryious Thomas value to go way up in 2012 and both of those WR's should be on your radar of WR's to own.

I wouldn't doubt that Manning can produce a 3,500+ yard, 25+ TD's this season at a minimum.  I would be surprised if Manning is NOT a top 10 QB for 2012.  He is not in my top 5 QB's for 2012, but I do think he is going to slip into later rounds of the draft.  Most drafts he will be selected in the 2nd round and at the latest 5th round of the draft.

If you decide to pass on taking a top QB in the first round and elect to wait out until rounds three through five to draft a QB then Manning needs to be on your radar. He is a bit of a risk, but the reward is very nice.

As well as Eli Manning did last year Peyton is the Manning to draft for 2012.
