6. Peyton Manning (QB-DEN)
I personally am a huge fan of Manning, however we are going to see a massive drop in his production this year. The departure of tight ends Julius Thomas, Jacob Tamme and wide receiver Wes Welker led to the arrival of run heavy coach Gary Kubiak, which leads me to believe the Broncos are going to rely more on the run game than their usual pass heavy offense.
This means less attempts for Manning, and for a guy who is being ranked as a top five quarterback, he could be a bust this season.
5. Julius Thomas (TE-JAX)
We all know how dominant Thomas when he was in single coverage, which was rather frequently. Considering the fact that the Jacksonville receiving corps consists of Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee, he’ll be doubled much more.
You can expect to see Thomas get the same number of targets as he did in Denver, but I do not think he will be able to do as much with those targets in comparison to what he did in Denver. Thomas can no longer be considered a top three fantasy tight end.
