Easy on Ingram: I’m taking Mark Ingram’s Week 10 performance with a giant grain of salt since the Cowboys defense seemingly took an early flight out of the Big Easy sometime in the middle of the second quarter (apparently, I was unaware it was official Cowboys team policy that Sean Lee is the only player on this unit permitted to make a tackle). But Ingram had 14 carries for a career-high 145 yards and added a touchdown in Sunday night’s 49-17 thrashing of Dallas. I think this is more likely to be a one-off performance since it was completely out of the blue. Not to mention, check out the run defenses awaiting the Saints over the next month: they host […]
Peyton Manning is probably the most automatic player in fantasy football right now. Probably. I should change that to just automatic. But here’s the thing, if you had him on Monday night, and let’s say you needed 28.86 points, you had to feel pretty good. And if you have Montee Ball to boot, there’s no way you could lose, right?

While the NFL world is curious to see if Peyton Manning can regain his touch on the football field, the veteran was exercising his famed acting chops while filming a commercial for Buick according to The Associated Press.

Happy Tuesday, everybody. I have to say, staying up late to watch John Cena get “potato’d” was worth. Oh, and the season finale of “Justified” is tonight. It’s going to be a great day. But how about some fantasy news?

When Peyton Manning decided to play for the Broncos, he also had to decide not to play for any of the other teams that had pursued him. It was a decision, Manning told NFL Network’s Rich Eisen on Tuesday, that he didn’t take lightly.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher worked for Titans owner Bud Adams for many years (17 to be exact), and for him the math involved in the team’s pursuit of Peyton Manning isn’t complicated.
The Broncos have expressed their interest in signing Peyton Manning to his agent, Tom Condon, and are serious about negotiating a contract with the quarterback, according to league sources.
The Peyton Manning Sweepstakes are underway, but for now the teams who are interested are largely in the dark over his medical condition. Also unclear are Manning’s intentions to eventually work out in public, thus giving teams a chance to verify that he’s completely recovered from four neck surgeries.
There’s no reason not to be optimistic about what could happen if your team wins the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. Now is the time.
So Peyton Manning is officially a free agent. Now what?

The Dolphins, Redskins, Seahawks, Broncos and Cardinals have begun pursuing QB Peyton Manning, league sources said Wednesday.
LaDainian Tomlinson told NFL Network on Wednesday, in no uncertain terms, that if the Jets acquire Peyton Manning, Mark Sanchez would ask for his release.
