I pumped up Julius Thomas a lot this Summer, but did not expect him to go off the way he did on Thursday night. The light bulb went on with Orange Julius this Summer, and all indications were that Peyton Manning spent a ton of extra time working with him. It has paid off as the former basketball player took a little time to develop, but all the stars have aligned.
I’m not expecting him to go for 5/110/2, but there will be plenty to go around in this offense that looks unstoppable. We have seen Manning do this before with the Colts and Wayne/Harrison/Stokely/Clark. Now, he has arguably better (definitely more explosive) weapons at his disposal. Julius Thomas is a must own at this point and should be a top 10-12 TE this season without a doubt. His ceiling is top 5.

Not quite yet. Although the game was incredible feat getting a little revenge on the Super Bowl champions, which entailed the 49-27 score, the most the Baltimore Ravens have ever given up in a game, there were a lot of “rookie” mistakes that still need to be resolved before the Broncos can be considered a Super Bowl caliber team, although they are one of the top contenders...
If you missed the NFL season opener Thursday night between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens you missed a barn burner--at least from Denver's side of things. The Broncos defense played well enough against the Flacco Attack, but the real show came whenever Peyton Manning was on the field.
The wily veteran showed just why he is one of the greatest...

The NFL 2013 season kicked off Thursday night with the world champion Baltimore Ravens facing off against the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium. The game entered halftime with the Ravens up but, the second half was all about the legend that is Peyton Manning. Manning tied a 40-year-old NFL record with 462 passing yards, throwing seven touchdowns with no interceptions.
Here are four fantasy revelations from the Broncos' 49-27 thumping of the Ravens on Thursday, which included an NFL-record-tying performance from Peyton Manning.
1. Even in hindsight, it's hard to feel guilty about Manning's No. 8 ranking for the week
Of his nine previous season openers, Manning (462 yards passing, seven TDs vs. Baltimore) had thrown for 2,529 yards...
Peyton Manning made his historic seven-TD pass performance look so effortless Thursday night. The reality is that his performance merely highlighted the vast chasm that separates the elite NFL teams from those also-rans anchored down with primitive passing attacks.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos waited eight long months, then another 33 minutes, to get the season started.
A record-tying seven touchdown passes - something no one had done in 44 years - made it worth the while.
Connecting with his most prized addition, Wes Welker, and former college basketball player Julius Thomas and Demaryius Thomas for two TDs each, Manning directed...

There were so many ridiculous performances this week.

A glorious Sunday of football action is but a mere few hours away and we can’t wait. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t still also be laughing at the Ravens for their season opening loss on Thursday. Yahoo’s latest fantasy app update included a cute little burn of Baltimore’s defense for surrendering seven touchdown passes to Peyton Manning. It’s pretty funny, unless...
On Monday, Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski spoke to the media about the team’s opening game against the Dolphins.
In context, he was being asked about the players’ mentality given the history of losing opening day games and the seasons that seemed to slip away following them.
“This is a new time and a new team. Anything else is just noise out there.”
For fans of the team...
It’s Friday, so you should be in a good mood, given that you have a great weekend ahead of you filled with college and pro football.
Speaking of football, this Peyton Manning guy for the Broncos is pretty damn good. He threw SEVEN touchdowns yesterday. Fun fact: Last year the Ravens allowed their seventh passing touchdown in week ten, this year they allowed seven in one game as...
Despite getting blown out by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens suffered a lot more than a 47-29 loss. Ravens’ star player and Super Bowl XLVII “hero” Jacoby Jones suffered an apparent MCL sprain after accidentally colliding with teammate Brynden Trawick while trying to catch a punt early in the second quarter.

The Baltimore Ravens may be the Super Bowl champions, but they are certainly not Super Bowl favorites to win this season’s big game. After an offseason of losing high-profile players, the Ravens will be put to a major test when they play the Denver Broncos later tonight.
Yes, it’s early, but it’s never too early to start figuring out where teams stand. It’s assumed that...
