Week 10 the Denver Broncos go to Carolina to meet the disappointing Panthers.
Are there any Panthers who are worth a spot on your fantasy football lineup?
Do you dare bench any Broncos?
Let's alleviate your fantasy football worries.
Manning has thrown for three touchdowns five times in five games. Last week in Cincinnati he compiled 291 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions. For the season Manning has 20 touchdown passes and six interceptions.
The Panthers' defense ranks 13th against the pass. They have sacked quarterbacks 24 times this season.
This is Peyton Manning, all there is really to say is congratulations to those of you who picked him up in the third round.
You are playing him.
Newton went in the first round of most drafts. He came into 2012 with high expectations. If you haven't dropped him then you are counting on a rebound. You got rewarded for your patience last week. This week expect a bounce-back to sophomore slump form.
This season Newton has 1,902 yards with six touchdowns and eight interceptions.
The Broncos' defense is ranked 10th against the pass this year. They also have a relentless pass rush thanks to Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller.
You are sitting Newton.
Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker
Reports are that Decker is nursing a thigh bruise. It is Week 10 everyone is hurt.
Thomas has 46 catches this year. Decker has 47 catches. Thomas averages 16.8 yards per catch. Decker is averaging 12.7 yards per catch. Decker has seven touchdowns for the season. Thomas has four touchdowns for the season.
You are playing them both. If you have to choose, Thomas has big-play ability. With big play comes big points. You want them both. If you have to make a Sophie's choice it is Thomas.
Last year Smith saw a resurgence in his career because of his rookie quarterbacks. This year Smith has only seen the end zone one time. And Sunday he will be shadowed by Champ Bailey.
Broncos' defense has given up the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.
You are sitting Smith.
Dreessen has four touchdowns this season. Last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, he had 38 yards and a touchdown. Dreessen is ranked fourth among tight ends for touchdowns this season.
Panthers' defense is really good against tight ends. They have held Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez to nine fantasy points between them. No tight end has scored double digits fantasy points against them.
You are sitting Dreessen.
Olsen is averaging 11.6 yards per catch. While he only has one touchdown, he has 53 targets for the season.
The Broncos' defense is less formidable against tight ends. They have allowed six tight ends to reach double digits fantasy points. With Bailey on Smith, Newton will have to look elsewhere.
You are playing Olsen.
For the season McGahee has four touchdowns. He is averaging 4.2 yards per carry.
The Panthers' defense has slowed both Matt Forte and Alfred Morris.
You are sitting McGahee.
Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams
Stewart has no touchdowns. Williams has three touchdowns. Newton will need to be tossing the ball to keep up with the Broncos' scoring machine. Newton will be calling his own number to run the ball. He will also spend a lot of time trying to get away from Miller and Dumervil.
You are sitting any running back with a Panther on his chest.
The Broncos' defense is your sleeper play for this week. Play them. Do it and do it now!
