As the NFL season progresses, maintaining a successful fantasy team can hinge on whether you outsmart yourself or not. There have been plenty of healthy players who were once considered studs that you may be beginning to question whether or not to put them in your lineup. If you pulled Tony Romo in Week 5, you missed out on 506 yards and five touchdowns. Don’t like Larry Fitzgerald against San Francisco and decide to finally sit him in Week 6? All he did was go for 117 yards and a score. Whether or not you’re patient enough to wait for that breakout game is a different story. Here’s a look at who may or may not do just that in Week 7. QUARTERBACK Start ‘em: Eli Manning, New York Yep. I went there. The Manning that won’t be winning the MVP this year has the Giants off to an 0-6 start, and has yet to complete an interception-free game this season. But there are far worse options out there this week. If you’re a Drew Brees owner, don’t feel (too) bad about starting Eli this week. For...

“The Return of Peyton Manning to Indianapolis” story that will eat up the media coverage until the game on Sunday Night Football has taken a sour, snippy, soap-opera turn and before it gets better, Jim Irsay has to inset his foot into his mouth.
It’s on. It’s sooooooo on now!
We still have four days until Peyton Manning will return to his original NFL home as a horse of a...
Robert Mathis and Reggie Wayne have seen Peyton Manning's high-flying act.
As longtime teammates, they played a part in Manning's gaudy stats, record-breaking quests and even the distracting pursuits of perfection.
This week, as outsiders, they will put all that inside knowledge to use as Andrew Luck and the Colts try to derail Manning and the unbeaten Broncos.

With an 0-6 record, Tom Coughlin is considering a lot of things to improve the New York Giants.
Changing quarterbacks isn't one of them.
Coughlin on Thursday said Eli Manning has led the Giants to many victories in his 10-year career and he fully expects the two-time Super Bowl MVP to do it again.
The 67-year-old coach was asked about benching the struggling Manning in a conference...
Former NFL defensive tackle Tommie Harris had a brief stint with Colts and claims that owner Jim Irsay is treating Peyton Manning like an ex-girlfriend.
“I had a chance to be under Jim Irsay when I was with the Colts, and I’ve got to say he was quite different, a different owner,” Harris said on the NFL Network via ProFootballTalk.com. “You know how that ugly girlfriend,...
Giants coach Tom Coughlin isn’t considering benching erratic quarterback Eli Manning Monday night against the Vikings, despite a league-high 15 interceptions and a 0-6 record.
Von Miller has completed his six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, and now the Denver Broncos linebacker hopes to put his off-the-field issues behind him. “I definitely made mistakes in the past, but it wouldn’t do anybody any good to go back and defend that stuff,” Miller said Monday. “I’ve already served my suspension. I’m working hard...
Someone from outside the football world weighed in on the supposed Jim Irsay-Peyton Manning feud on Thursday, and he was in no way kind to the Colts owner.

The past present and future quarterbacks of the Indianapolis Colts will meet Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium and ESPN's NFL Nation spent part of this week asking players if Andrew Luck is the next Peyton Manning.
Most of us should agree: There will never be another quarterback with Manning's combination of instincts football intelligence pocket presence and quick release...
We are now 1/3 of the way through the NFL season, and there’s been a fair share of surprising teams and players as well as teams and players who have disappointed.
The MVP race at this point in the year is a bit different though, as a lot of the guys at the top are people who would be expected to be there. There’s surprises here and there, but for the most part the MVP race hasn’t...
Colts owner Jim Irsay’s statements about the Colts of the past and the new model the team has pursued have drawn the ire of many, including Peyton Manning’s current head coach John Fox and former Colts general manager Bill Polian. The media hype surrounding some relatively mundane quotes has spoiled an otherwise exciting homecoming that will see Peyton Manning, the past, battle...
* THESE RANKINGS ARE BASED NOT JUST ON RECORD, BUT OVERALL PERFORMANCE AND STRENGTH OF TEAM.1) Denver Broncos (6-0) – Anyone who laid 28 points on Sunday should to have known that was a sucker bet. Manning and company were never in doubt, but Jacksonville hung tough for a good portion of three quarters.2) Kansas City Chiefs (6-0) – A popcorn schedule should lead these guys to...
