Peyton Manning Denver Broncos (2-3): Peyton Manning is clearly past his neck and arm strength issues.

Manning is fourth in the league in terms of passing yards and has only had one poor quarter all season.

He should be a mainstay in your fantasy lineups.

Willis McGahee has started the season nicely and may be running harder this week after coughing up a costly fumble at the end of the game last week.

Demaryius Thomas is third in the league with 505 receiving yards and is really starting to hit his stride with Peyton Manning.

Eric Decker saved what could have been his worst fantasy day last week with a four-yard touchdown reception. Decker finished with just 4-21-1, but still saw plenty of targets and is still a safe play.

Jacob Tamme has seen his target numbers increase are slowly trying to put that Indy connection back together.

Good starts: Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Willis McGahee

Middle of the road: Jacob Tamme

Bad starts: Ronnie Hillman, Brandon Stokley

San Diego Chargers (3-2): Philip Rivers is doing the most that he can with a slowing tight end and an unspectacular receiving corps.

Ryan Mathews did not get the start Last week but did get 12 rushes for 80 yards and a touchdown. Mathews is explosive and has all the talent in the world. Gaining the confidence of the coaching staff Mathews is getting the start this week in a friendly match up.

Jackie Battle is now an afterthought and barring any injury or fumble problems from Mathews, Battle won't be seeing the field much.

Malcom Floyd had another 100-yard receiving performance and is starting to really develop a chemistry with Rivers.

Robert Meachem had his best game of the season last week against his former team and had two touchdown receptions. Still, Machem only received four targets and is no lock for a good play.

Antonio Gates has been struggling a lot with getting separation and making himself open. He has yet to have a good fantasy game and appears to lack the speed that he once had.

Good starts: Philip Rivers, Ryan Mathews, Malcolm Floyd, Antonio Gates

Middle of the road: --

Bad starts: Jackie Battle, Robert Meachem
