Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning had another record-breaking fantasy football season in 2013.  The five-time MVP shockingly finished with 55 touchdown passes to go along with 5,477 passing yards. Manning also threw at least two touchdowns in 15 of his 16 games and filled the box score week after week. It was the best single-season performance in fantasy football history.

After dominating the world of fantasy football last year, many are wondering if Manning can do it again in 2014?

Firstly, Manning has some of the best weapons in the game. WR Demaryius Thomas is pushing Calvin Johnson for the best wideout in football, while WR Wes Welker and TE Julius Thomas will likely haul in double-digit touchdowns again in 2014.

Denver did lose WR Eric Decker this offseason to the New York Jets, but the Broncos luckily were able to add WR Emmauel Sanders through free agency. The veteran will give Manning another reliable option to look for downfield and will quickly fill the role left on the outside by Sanders.

Manning has all the weapons in the world to have a repeat performance in 2014, and as long as Peyton is healthy, he will be one of the top fantasy quarterbacks in the game. Manning will be guaranteed to throw over 4,500 yards/40 touchdowns in 2014 and finish as the number one quarterback in all of fantasy.

2014 Fantasy Prediction: 16 GP, 5,303 Passing Yards, 45 TDs, 11 INTs
