Demaryius: It seems like Peyton Manning has 'more zip' on his passes

Demaryius Thomas on Broncos QB Peyton Manning: "I know you're not going to believe this but it seems like he has more zip."

Fantasy Impact: 

Manning first popped up on the injury report with a thigh injury after Week 15 (vs. San Diego). When looking only at his first 13 games, Manning averaged 301 yards, 2.8 TD and 0.8 INT, or 21.4 fantasy points per game. That would have been good enough for the third-highest average if he were able to keep that pace. In the final three weeks, including the game in which he injured the thigh, Manning averaged 272 yards and just 1.0 TD versus 1.3 INT. Even with the reduced production, Manning finished as the #4 quarterback in 2014. He is once again a top 5 option at quarterback, though he's closer to the pack than in recent years.
