The Denver offense wasn't on point Sunday with rookie Paxton Lynch under center, but McManus was able to remain relatively productive. Two of his kicks came from over 40 yards out with his longest coming from 46, and he's now tied for seventh in the league in field goals made. However, McManus has only attempted one kick from 50-plus this season, which may prevent him from joining the upper-echelon of fantasy kickers until further notice.
McManus converted four-of-five field goal attempts and all three PAT attempts in Sunday's win over the Colts.
McManus nailed field goals of 23, 43, 33 and 35 yards on Sunday, his lone blemish being a 54-yard miss following the game's opening drive. With Denver's offense, again, having plenty of success in the middle of the field, but some struggles as they approach the goal line, McManus should be called on often this season.
It was a quiet game for McManus, and his night certainly wasn't helped by the
Brandon McManus will return to Denver in 2016 after signing his tender, the team's official site reports.
McManus excelled in his first full year on the job in 2015, ranking fifth in league in both field goals, 30, and field goals of 50 yards or longer, five. A big leg combined with eight games Denver's thin air tends to add up to a quality fantasy kicker. McManus' real-life football value might dip in 2016, however. His booming leg led him to rank fifth in the league with 55 touchbacks in 2015 - a skill that will lose some of its appeal now that touchbacks will be taken out to the 25-yard line.
Brandon 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.
