Even Peyton Manning not so sure he’d draft himself in fantasy football this year
on Aug 28, 2012
After joining the Broncos as the most prized free agent of the off-season, Peyton Manning started the preseason with two mediocre games. He finally put together a solid performance last week against the 49ers, but still isn’t convinced he’d burn a first-round fantasy pick on himself this season.
“A first-rounder? Hmmm. I’m not so sure about that,” said Manning, whose stellar career with the Colts came to an end after a year of serious neck surgeries. “Maybe a high second-round pick. I mean, my arm strength really isn’t once was. And what if get blind-sided and hurt my neck again? My season will be over in a literal snap.”
