    Broncos' Brandon McManus: Drills all four kicks

    McManus drilled both field-goal attempts and a pair of field goals during Sunday's AFC championship game victory versus the Patriots. McManus is pacing the postseason leaderboard with 23 points, which was powered by five field goals made in the divisional round against the Steelers. Including playoffs, he's posted an 88.1-percent success rate in that realm, a mark that would rank ninth among all kickers that logged a full 16-game slate in the regular season. Nonetheless, he'll have his work cut out for him in Super Bowl 50 against a Panthers unit that conceded the second-fewest points per game to kickers (6.0) in 2015.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: Looks for continued success in playoffs

    McManus finished off the regular-season as the tenth leading-scorer in the league with 125 points, converting 30 of 35 field-goals and 35 of 36 PATs. McManus delivered in his sophomore campaign, leading the Broncos in scoring. He was perfect on the season from the 39-yard line and under and went 10 of 15 beyond the 40-yard line, including a five of seven mark for kicks over fifty yards. He'll look to continue his success in the Broncos' playoff push before becoming a free agent in the offseason.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: No FGs in loss to Steelers

    McManus was 3 of 4 on PATs and did not attempt a field goal during Sunday's loss to the Steelers. A week after getting five field goal attempts, McManus was back to his relatively low-usage ways, as he's failed to hit multiple field goals in six of his last seven games. The Broncos' offense hasn't given him many opportunities, though he has missed three kicks in the last four weeks. He'll finish off the regular season with two games at home, which could help his kicks from distance.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: Five points in win

    McManus connected on his lone field-goal attempt, a 24-yarder, and hit both of his PATs during Sunday's 17-15 win over the Bears. After hitting multiple field goals in five of the first seven games, McManus is just 2-for-2 over the last three weeks, adding six PATs. The offense moved the ball much better Sunday with Brock Osweiler under center, though they'll likely have a tougher time in Week 12 against the Patriots, which may allow McManus a few more attempts.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: One point in loss to Chiefs

    McManus didn't attempt a field goal and connected on his only PAT during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The Broncos' offense was dominated Sunday, as they trailed 22-0 heading into the fourth quarter, and McManus has been doing little for fantasy owners, connecting on three field goals in the last three weeks combined. Up next is a Week 11 trip to face the Bears, who are coached by former Broncos head coach John Fox.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: One field goal in loss

    McManus connected on his lone field goal attempt, a 29-yarder, and was 3 for 3 on extra points Sunday against the Colts. McManus' streak of kicking multiple field goals ends at four, as he's not 19-of-20 on the season, while also going 19-of-19 on extra points. The Broncos' offense hasn't been nearly as dominant this year as in season's past, but McManus is still likely to get enough opportunities to keep him a viable option in most fantasy formats. Up next is a Week 10 home game against the Chiefs.

    Broncos' Brandon McManus: Accounts for 14 points in win

    McManus went 4-for-5 on his field goal attempts, connecting from 29, 25, 39 and 34 yards while missing from 51 at the end of the first half, and 2-for-2 on extra points Sunday against the Browns. McManus' miss was his first this season, and he's a solid 16-for-17 through six games, though fantasy owners will have to look elsewhere in Week 7, as the Broncos are off before facing the Packers in Week 8.

    Broncos K Brandon McManus stays perfect on the season

    Broncos kicker Brandon McManus was 3 for 3 on his field goal attempts, connecting from 33 twice and 39 yards, while hitting both of his extra points Sunday against the Vikings. McManus is a perfect 9-for-9 this season on field goals and 10-for-10 on extra points. The Broncos' offense hasn't been as prolific this season as most of last, but it's still good enough for McManus to continue to be a solid fantasy kicking option.

    Broncos release Connor Barth; Brandon McManus wins job as PK

    The Broncos released kicker Connor Barth on Wednesday. Barth's departure solidifies Brandon McManus as the starting placekicker for the Broncos. Barth supplanted McManus as the kicker on field goals and extra points after 10 games in 2014. Barth hit 15 of 16 field goals down the stretch, but McManus was added back to the roster after Barth struggled on kickoffs in his first game. Although, special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis studied what plagued McManus as a rookie and feels his struggles were easily explained. "He's just like any other player -- young," DeCamillis said Aug. 18, per the team's official website. "Unfortunately, you look at kickers and they should make everything, right, whoever they are. If they haven't done it a bunch yet, they're going to have those hiccups. You have to be able to come back from it and hopefully he did." McManus connected on 9 of 13 field goals last season. He was 41 for 41 on extra points.
