Report: Broncos practice squad S John Boyett arrested
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was arrested early Wednesday on a charge of third degree assault, the Denver Post reports.

"We are disappointed to learn of the matter involving John Boyett and are in the process of gathering more information," the Broncos told the Post.

Boyett was arrested on charges of disorderly public intoxication on Sept. 2 of last year and waived by the Colts the next day. He signed with the Broncos last November.

Emmanuel Sanders looking for more
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

If Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is to bounce back from a surprisingly quiet showing over the last two weeks, he will have to do so in Week 8 against a Chargers defense that has more than held their own against wide receivers this season.

The Chargers rank sixth in Fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season, and have done a fantastic job overall, with one exception. The Raiders -- yes, the Raiders -- absolutely torched the Chargers in Week 6, with three receivers going off for double digit Fantasy points.

The Chargers have allowed just one other receiver to score 10 or more Fantasy points, though they also just haven't faced off against many good passing offenses. The Broncos racked up 519 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Chargers last week, so they should have some success.

Sanders has at least 8 Fantasy points in five of six games this season, and should be able to keep that up even in the face of the Chargers' success. Keep him active in most Fantasy formats for Week 8.

No risk with Peyton Manning Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

It goes without saying, to be certain, but we'll say it anyways: start Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Thursday night games have a tendency to suppress offense, but that simply has not been the case for Manning in his career. If you'll believe it, Manning has actually somehow been more effective in Thursday games, averaging 300.5 passing yards with 35 touchdowns in 11 games. That comes out to a Fantasy scoring average of 30.2 points per game, including 82 combined points in two games a year ago.

This is a lot of words to tell you something you didn't need to be told. Manning is rolling, and nothing is going to slow him down; not rain, not sleet, not snow, and certainly not a short week. Keep him in your lineup in all leagues for Thursday's matchup.
