2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Denver Broncos
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Broncos probably have the best talent in all of football. They went all in on both sides of the ball this offseason to try to win Peyton Manning another championship. Denver is the favorite to win it all in our view. Their offense is nearly unstoppable and the defense gets overlooked at time but is very good. The pass defense should be improved and the pass rush causes all sorts of havoc. The Broncos are the odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl to open the season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Montee Ball opens his second season as the starter for the best offensive in football. Needless to say, his potential is huge for the coming season. Ball probably won't lead the league in rushing but has huge touchdown potential in this offense. He'll also get his yards as the Broncos will keep defenses hones with the run. Ball will be a legit No. 1 back this season, posting consistent numbers for fantasy teams.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Emmanuel Sanders likely is the No. 3 receiver for the Broncos his first season with the team. He moves to a pass-first offense, giving him good potential for the coming season. We aren't so sure he'll be a huge factor for the team, though. He'll have some big games but expect him to be up and down as Peyton Manning will look at the receivers he is most familiar with first. And rookie Cody Latimer is a big-time talent that should push Sanders for playing time once he gets up to speed in the offense.

Team Notes

Jan 30, 02:02 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) said he's not worried at all about no passing the physical he's due to take March 1. His $19 million salary for the 2015 season would become guaranteed March 9 if he decides to come back, and he'll have to pass a physical to make sure he's good to go. 'I don't see that physical being that significant to tell you the truth as far as that revelation,' Manning said. 'I feel pretty confident that I would pass that physical and my neck is in good shape.'
Jan 30, 01:12 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels comfortable in almost any offense 'aside from the Delaware Blue Hen Wing T.' He said that a change to a new offensive philosophy by head coach Gary Kubiak shouldn't be a problem.
Jan 30, 12:52 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may make a decision on whether he plans to return for another season in the near future, according to his dad, Archie Manning. Archie thinks his son will make his decision 'maybe in the next week or two.' 'He's given a lot of thought to it,' Archie Manning said. 'My advice for him is to go through the process, get away a little bit, let your leg heal, give it a lot of thought and decide what you're going to do ? (I) think he's taken a good evaluation of where he is physically.'
Jan 21, 04:53 PM Denver Broncos QB Zac Dysert was signed to a Reserve/Future contract Wednesday, Jan. 21.
Jan 21, 11:03 AM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to return in 2015, pending the results of his annual physical, according to three sources The Denver Post's Woody Paige trusts. The test results were learned at the beginning of March last season. The team has requested a decision from him by March 9.
Jan 20, 05:13 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning remains unsure of his future with the team, but head coach Gary Kubiak said he plans to sit down with Manning and talk about their relationship moving forward. Kubiak doesn't think the difference in his offensive style will be a big deal if Manning decides to come back for another year. 'Well, it's easy to build a playbook for him,' Kubiak said. 'I mean, he's been the master at it for many, many years, and you're talking about a Hall of Fame player, Hall of Fame person.'
Jan 20, 01:33 PM Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson, who finished the year with 849 rushing yards, 324 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, is looking forward to his role in new head coach Gary Kubiak's offense in 2015. Kubiak typically runs a zone-blocking offense that is friendly to running backs. 'I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished,' Anderson said of Kubiak. 'One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It's always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can't wait to get started working with him.'

Fantasy Impact: Anderson should be a great fit for this offense and could post huge numbers for the Broncos in a full season.
Jan 19, 10:33 PM Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) will not participate in the 2015 Pro Bowl, and he will be replaced by Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten.
Jan 19, 06:33 PM Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson has been named to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a replacement for Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee).
Jan 18, 09:42 AM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) will not play in the 2015 Pro Bowl because of a quadriceps injury.
Jan 17, 09:42 AM Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin will replace Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas in the Pro Bowl due to injury.
Jan 16, 03:02 PM Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears head coach John Fox has signed a four-year deal with the team. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Jan 16, 02:32 PM The Chicago Bears have hired former Denver Broncos head coach John Fox as their new head coach, according to a source.
Jan 16, 02:32 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is believed to be leaning toward returning for another season, according to DE DeMarcus Ware. Ware said he has spoken to Manning since the team's divisional round loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and he's confident that Manning will return for another season. 'Me and Peyton will always talk back and forth about things. Now he's just looking forward to the next season and how we can get better,' Ware said. 'I think he'll be back. I feel like he still has a couple years in him.'
Jan 15, 03:52 PM Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play in the 2015 Pro Bowl is an injury replacement for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed).
Jan 14, 10:43 PM Free-agent head coach John Fox (Broncos) and the Chicago Bears are believed to be close to a deal late Wednesday, Jan. 14.
