Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning plans to return for another season according to Denver Post's Woody Paige.
Insight: Paige is a well-respected Denver sports journalist and cites "three trustworthy sources" in his report. Paige says as long as Manning passes his annual spring physical, he will be back with the team in 2015 under new coordinator Gary Kubiak. That should make all fantasy owners happy.
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led New England to a victory Sunday versus Indianapolis.
Insight: Brady was on target, going 23-of-35 for 226 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also had three carries for 13 yards. Brady will look to win his fourth Super Bowl during his sixth appearance.
Description: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson somehow overcame four interceptions, and lead a furious comeback Sunday versus Green Bay.
Insight: He threw for 209 yards and rushed for 25 more. Wilson came alive in fourth quarter and overtime, where he rushed for a score, and ended the game on a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against Seattle.
Insight: You were expecting some thing else? Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He'll be put to a much tougher test today against Seattle and some ugly weather.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice Thursday.
Insight: Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf last Sunday going 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He has a much tougher assignment this week against the best defense in football - Seattle.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning played with a torn right quad over the last month, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: This would explain his significant drop in production. There could be a lot of movement in the front office with Denver, but assuming Manning returns the offense should be potent once again next season.
Description: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning did not look like himself, throwing for just 187 yards and a touchdown versus the Colts.
Insight: Credit the Colts defense for an excellent game plan. They tackled so well that the Broncos wide receiver screen game gained very few yards, and the down the field passing game for Denver was nonexistant. This could have very well been Manning's final game. Not the way fantasy owners or Broncos fans would like him to go out, but if it is his final game, there are a lot of regular season memories for fantasy owners. Unfortunately for Manning, not enough postseason memories.
Description: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo attempted just 19 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns versus the Packers.
Insight: It was a slow start for the Dallas running game, but the Cowboys did have 28 rushing attempts for 145 yards. Romo threw when needed and much like in the regular season, he had two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough.
Description: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers played just fine with his strained calf on Sunday.
Insight: Rodgers went 24-for-35 for 217 yards and three touchdowns versus the Cowboys. He also led the Packers to a comeback victory to reach the NFC Championship for the first time since 2010. That game, however, will not be at the friendly confides of Lambeau Field and it will be against the top defense in the league.
