PPR Fantasy Football:
Robert Griffin III
How Will Peyton Manning do tonight in his Broncos’ debut?
Ah yes, the preseason is officially here. I know there was the Hall of Fame game just a few days ago but for some reason that game has always had a bit of a different feel to it but tonight I can feel the excitement in the air as we look forward to seeing the likes of Peyton Manning taking the field for the first time in a Broncos uniform or Robert Griffin III making his much anticipated NFL debut.
However the preseason is also an important time for fantasy football owners. I am not saying that you should completely change your draft strategy based on what happens in a preseason game but it should be completely dismissed either.
When it comes to some players this is the first time we will have an opportunity to evaluate. Manning for instance has not played in an NFL game for over a year and regardless of the fact that it is just a preseason game, it is an important test. It will be the first chance to see Manning’s ar...
BEST OF MAXIM

The hit everyone was waiting for never happened. Left tackle Ryan Clady would rather be penalized than see Peyton Manning get zinged during the Denver Broncos‘ first preseason...
The 10-snap cameo appearance that Peyton Manning made in his return to the field on Thursday night demonstrated that the four-time Most Valuable Player hasn't lost his sense of timing or his feel on short and intermediate routes. But it did show that the Denver wide receivers still have some work to do in matching Manning's nonpareil precision, even after a summer of working...
In his Broncos debut, quarterback Peyton Manning completed four of seven passes for 44 yards and an interception.Fantasy Spin:Manning's interception wasn't really his fault as the ball fell through his receiver's hands before Chicago safety Major Wright reeled it in on the deflection. Don't expect Manning to get too many reps during Denver's exhibition slate as...
Baby steps, not giant leaps. That's how Peyton Manning is marking his comeback. So, he was glad to get his first game in 19 months out of the way and use it as a building block.
Manning was uneven in Denver's exhibition opener at Chicago on Thursday night even though he didn't have to contend with Julius Peppers or Brian Urlacher and had plenty of time to throw.
I think John Elway is subliminally saying that Manning isn’t better than him until he gets two more rings. I see you John you aren’t fooling me.
Trying to motivate the older Manning.
In Elway’s opinion, if Manning were to close out his career by winning two Super Bowls as the Broncos’ quarterback — the same way Elway closed out his own Hall of Fame career — that would...
I’m back Juan…
Peyton Manning was back in action for the first time in a long time and he looked pretty decent as he knocked the rust off. He only showed off his arm on a 19 yard gain to Eric Decker (my favorite Broncos WR this season), but he was picked off in the redzone on a ball he threw behind Stokely. I will have to see more to give him a full endorsement, but this was...
The Oakland Raiders are going to face many tough tasks over the course of the 2012 season. Among those include executing new offensive and defensive schemes from rookie head coach Dennis Allen, and a tough three game stretch from weeks 10-12 where they will face three playoff teams from 2011 (at Baltimore, New Orleans and at Cincinnati).
However, the biggest home game of the 2012...
Time for the first part of our position-by-position NFC East analysis and rankings! We'll be starting with quarterbacks. There is no single factor that will make or break any of the candidates-- they will be assessed based on the five grading criteria below. Note that RGIII will not be rated due to the fact that he has yet to prove himself on an NFL level.

No team is without its flaw. Join us as we take a look at the fatal flaw that might cost 5 contenders a shot at Super Bowl glory.
New York Giants: Questionable Running Game
The Giants ranked 32nd (last in the league) in run production last season. Part of that was due to Pro Bowler Amhad Bradshaw’s foot injury, which caused him to miss four games. Their passing game actually improved...
The preseason is in full swing, so football is kind of quasi-back-esque, as PK would say. Despite the horrendous scab officiating, it was still great to sift through a slate of six games last night, at least for an hour or so, until everyone on the field were unrecognizable future victims of the turk.
RGIII looked competent, prompting the inevitable hysteria on the part of Redskins...
