The Indianapolis Colts announced today that they will not be picking up quarterback Peyton Manning’s option for the 2012-13 NFL season. Manning played 14 seasons for the Colts before a neck injury forced him to miss the entire 2011-12 NFL season. The Colts went on to finish with the worst record in football leaving them with the first pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Find out where these guys rank, and where all the other fantasy quarterbacks rank, in “Dick’s Week 8 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings.”
