Peyton Manning (QB, DEN) - Week 4 Lineup Busts

Surprise! There's a QB who's been even bustier than Andrew Luck this season - I just now realized that was a terrible way to phrase that and good luck getting THAT mental image out of your head. Peyton "Fivehead" Manning and Andrew "Secretly a Cave Troll" Luck in a wet T-shirt contest. Ugh. Uuuuuuuuuuuggggggghhhhhhh. Turns out cookie dough ice cream absolutely doesn't taste as good coming back up as it did going down.

Anyway, Manning has looked as mortal as we've ever seen him, and the Vikings defense is sneakily excellent at getting pressure on the quarterback. For instance, they may have only logged one sack against Matt Stafford in their game against the Lions, but they hit Stafford 10 (!) times.

I'm expecting something much closer to the "no offensive touchdowns against the Ravens" Peyton Manning than any other version of everyone's favorite Nationwide spokesman, if only because he'll be busy trying not to get murdered this Sunday. Which is a legitimate possibility, given the state of his spinal column.

For the first time ever, I'd recommend taking a hard look at your backup QB/the waiver wire if Peyton is your starter. Derek Carr is probably still available, and he's getting the sentient Swiss cheese that is the Bears' secondary this week. Just a tip.
