And with basically all of the big names now signed, it's never too early to start considering the fantasy implications that follow the aftermath. Here's a look at the 10 most important offseason moves from a fantasy perspective and how they impact the new landscape. The next 10 moves will be posted over the weekend. 1.

Peyton Manning to the Broncos: Fantasy Impact

Tebow-Mania has come to an end now that future 1st ballot Hall of Famer Peyton Manning has agreed to join John Elway’s Denver Broncos.

Peyton Manning is the Best NFL Quarterback, Tim Tebow was the Better College Player

Peyton Manning is a Bronco. I am not surprised by this. I predicted it the minute it was announced that Jim Irsay was going to cut him loose. For five years and $96 million, I would be a Bronco too. Actually, I would have signed for $95 million, but Manning said it wasn’t the money. So the next question is, what happens to Tim Tebow during this off-season of quarterbacks. Tim Tebow...
