Invesco Field | Sunday, September 26 | 4:15 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Colts 27, Broncos 20
240 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 1 INTManning didn't need 57 pass attempts last week like he did in Week 1 against Houston. The Giants' secondary provided little resistance. The Broncos' secondary will be a tougher, but Manning should post decent numbers as always.
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 70 rush yards, 1 rush TDAddai had big day last week with the added attention on the Colts' receivers. The Broncos are giving up 4.5 yards per rush, setting Addai up for a nice day.
1 rec, 15 rec yards, 35 rush yardsBrown's 16 carries for 69 yards last week look promising, but he saw a lot of action at the end of a blowout. This is still primarily Joseph Addai's backfield.
5 rec, 55 yards, 1 TDThe Broncos have shut down receivers in the early going, but Manning-to-Wayne is a much better combination than anything Jacksonville or Seattle can offer.
3 rec, 40 yardsThose drops in Week 1 may have put him behind Austin Collie on the depth chart. Still, it's hard to imagine that the Colts are going to completely ignore him downfield once the passing game heats up.
3 rec, 30 yardsHe has outpaced Pierre Garcon in receptions so far.
5 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDClark has solidified himself as Peyton Manning's No. 2 target right behind Reggie Wayne. He'll be a tough matchup for Denver's linebackers.
3 PATs, 2 FGsThe Broncos' defense has looked alright in the early going, but the Colts are still one of the league's best and should set up Vinatieri for a couple of FG attempts.
1 sack, 1 INT, 1 FumbleThe Broncos' offense looked potent last week, though they were playing the Seahawks. Still, there may be better defensive options available.
150 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INTOrton has looked solid through two games, though admittedly he has yet to face much of a test defensively. He could put up good numbers again Sunday, though he probably won't approach the fantasy elite.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 95 rush yards, 1 rush TDThere is still the question of how carries will be split once Laurence Maroney is healthy. For now, Moreno is the Broncos' workhorse.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yardsBuckhalter had just 11 carries to Knowshon Moreno's 24 last week. Buckhalter is entrenched as the backup.
5 rec, 60 yardsRoyal caught all five of his targets and a touchdown last week. So far his season much more closely resembles his solid rookie campaign than his lackluster second-year effort.
4 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDThomas was the team's most targeted wideout last week, catching 8-of-9 passes thrown his way and a touchdown. He could be ready to take on a major role in the Broncos offense.
3 rec, 20 yardsGraham is used primarily as a blocker and shouldn't be on your roster.
2 PATs, 2 FGsIf the Broncos offense can continue the roll it's on, Prater will have plenty of chances going forward.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleDenver has done well shutting down two mediocre passing offenses so far this season. The Colts are anything but mediocre, however. The Broncos' defense is a very risky play this week.
