Will he be needed at some point this season? And what are his long term prospects with that group of guys around him?

Shouldn't really be on anyone's radar right now, unless there's a serious injury to Peyton, of course. He may see some action in like week 17, but likely with a few backups throughout the offense as well.

A couple of years down the road who knows, but the Bronco's could easily just bring someone else in by the time Peyton hangs it up.

Given Manning's current knee and ankle ailments and the D that's going to be collapsing his pocket all night I'm not so sure he shouldn't be on radars sooner.

Agreed. I actually think it's very wise to be thinking about this situation.

Yes, he's banged up now, but Peyton will play unless he seriously cannot go.

I hope he can keep it up he's having a great season but I'm not sure he wouldn't be sitting out tonight if it wasn't the Chiefs.

Peyton is really competitive so it takes a lot for him to sit out. Even if he was playing the Jags I could still see him going out there, unless he felt he'd hurt his team's chances. It took a neck injury to sit out and that's something that's serious and I'm sure he still wanted to get out there and play through it, if it was completely up to him.

A knee and ankle injury, while a tough injury, isn't too damaging to him as he isn't really mobile, but of course the wrong hit could definitely be a problem.

If you are in a dynasty league he is very much on the radar (at least mine). Why? There are several reasons.

1) Peyton is 37 years old. Maybe not this year, maybe not next... but his time is nearly up.
2) What if Peyton wins the Super Bowl? Would he retire?
3) Any QB hand picked by Elway and learning behind two of the greatest in history has future upside.
4) Broncos have some of the best receiving talent in the league locked up for at least a few more seasons.

What's not to like outside of the fact that he's not yet the starter? He's on my dynasty bench going in to next season.
