McManus failed to score 100 points for the second straight season, getting 95 points. He made just 80 precent of his field goals, going 20-of-25. The positive is McManus only struggled on long kicks. All of his misses were from 50-plus yards. He did not miss a field goal less than 50 yards. The Broncos are sticking with him as their kicker, but he is going to be on a shorter leash going forward. McManus has a great leg and is a pretty accurate kicker. He is young enough to get his career going in the right direction again but this could be a make or break season for him.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: McManus is a good buy-low option. He has plenty of potential in the thin air of Denver and an offense that should be better this year. He should be able to score around 115 points and make plenty of long-distance kicks.

Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus posted a solid staline on Monday versus the Oakland Raiders. The 6th-year kicker connected on three of four field goals on the evening, with his lone miss being a 64 yarder that would have been good from around 62.

The Temple product has continued to be a solid option at kicker over the last few seasons and looks to be on the same trajectory entering 2019.

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus says he is comfortable with free-agent PK Taylor Bertolet receiving an invitation to training camp. 'I've had another kicker in camp with me every other year,' McManus said recently. 'It's nothing that I'm not used to and it's always good to have someone competing against you. And it's not just (Bertolet). There are 31 other jobs out there and a bunch of others kicking as well.'
Fantasy Spin: Largely due to the Broncos' offensive struggles in recent seasons, McManus hasn't score more than 100 points since 2016 and remains a low-end PK2 if he manages to hold off Bertolet as expected.
