#24. Denver Broncos: Peyton Manning & C.J. Anderson
Manning took 82 more snaps under center than Brock Osweiler this season, so he gets the nod as Denver’s QB representative. The future Hall of Famer had the worst season of his career in 2015, with nine touchdowns and 17 interceptions. His 6.8 yards per pass attempt average was the lowest since his rookie season, and his 67.9 passer rating was his worst ever.
Despite Manning’s struggles, Denver’s spot on this list is boosted thanks to the quietly productive season from Anderson. He and Ronnie Hillman played virtually the same number of snaps (512 for Anderson, 527 for Hillman), but Anderson graded far better than Hillman, according to PFF. Anderson had 903 yards from scrimmage on 177 touches (5.1 average) compared to Hillman’s 974 yards on 231 touches (4.2 average). Though he might have disappointed some fantasy owners this season, he was a valuable and productive part of the Broncos‘ offense.
