Broncos QB Peyton Manning returns to practice Thursday

As expected, Peyton Manning's absence from the practice field was a short one. Manning returned to limited practice on Thursday after taking a day off to rest his recently aggravated high-ankle sprain. He will start against the Chiefs on Sunday night.

Fantasy Analysis:

Manning admitted that his ankle was sore following Sunday's win over the Chargers, but after his Monday MRI didn't reveal anything significant, there was no doubt that he would be playing as usual in Week 11. Expect Manning to go through another limited practice on Friday, but he is an easy top-five fantasy quarterback this week. The Chiefs' defense has been beaten for big plays down the field by Jason Campbell, Case Keenum @casekeenum7, and Jeff Tuel in recent weeks.

I'm concerned about the lack of respect being shown the #1 D/ST in the league. When players have been matched against Seattle this year, all involved have been down-graded at least 1 tier, if not listed as "Sit em's", but no such caution has been issued for Denvers QB, WRs, or RBs. In fact the only downgrade I've seen issued, has been for the Kansas City D/ST. KC leads the league in sacks, and will be gunning for the hobbled Maestro. How productive will Welker, Decker, Thomas, Thomas, or Moreno be with Brock Osweiler at the helm ?
