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

Mar 25, 05:23 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may not play as much as usual next season in order to give him more rest. Head coach Gary Kubiak has indicated that he will tailor the offense to benefit Manning, including running the ball more. Subsequently, QB Brock Osweiler could see more playing time if Manning's playing time is adjusted. Kubiak said he's impressed with how excited Osweiler is and knows he wants to play a part in the Broncos' offense. Kubiak said Osweiler's opportunity to play will come at some point. 'I always tell young players nobody knows if you're taking care of your business until you're thrown in the fire.'

Mar 24, 09:33 PM Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot) is still recovering from a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot, and he might not be available until the start of training camp. LBs Lamin Barrow, Todd Davis, Steven Johnson, Corey Nelson and Reggie Walker will see plenty of time during the offseason program with Marshall on the shelf.

Mar 24, 09:33 PM The Denver Broncos plan to use WR Cody Latimer as the third receiver behind WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in 2015. 'I think it's time for him to make a big jump,' head coach Gary Kubiak said. 'Not just a little jump. Obviously his play time is fixing to pick up, and it needs to pick up, so we need him to make a big jump in year two.'

Fantasy Impact: Latimer has a chance for a breakout season this coming year. He should be on your radar come draft day.
Mar 24, 09:23 PM Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) continues to recover from two fractures in his left knee. He might not be available until training camp. LBs Lamin Barrow, Todd Davis, Steven Johnson, Corey Nelson and Reggie Walker will see plenty of time during the offseason program with Trevathan on the mend.

Mar 24, 02:52 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning needing extra time this offseason to weigh his future is a non-issue, according to new head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak also said he's not worried about how Manning will fit into his offense. 'I'd pick Peyton Manning for any offense, I mean, we're going to go do what he does best,' Kubiak said. 'We're not going to go roll out if that's not something that's a strength of our team. We're going to do what he does best.'
Mar 23, 02:42 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is more of an immobile, shotgun-positioned quarterback at his age, but general manager John Elway is unconcerned with how he'll fit into new head coach Gary Kubiak's and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's plans. 'Gary Kubiak's one of the easiest guys to get along with,' Elway said. 'He's very smart. Plus, Rico is a very smart coach. (Gregg) Knapp is the same (quarterbacks) coach. They're going to get along fine. They'll get a feel for it. We're going to put in what Peyton likes to do offensively with what Gary has always done.'
Mar 17, 11:53 PM Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is generating very little buzz on the open market, according to a league source. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.
Mar 13, 03:53 PM Free-agent FS Darian Stewart (Ravens) has agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos on a two-year deal, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Mar 13, 12:03 PM Free-agent FS Darian Stewart (Ravens) is expected to visit the Atlanta Falcons.
Mar 12, 05:13 PM Free-agent DT Vance Walker (Chiefs) signed a two-year deal worth $5 million with the Denver Broncos Thursday, March 12, according to a source.
Mar 11, 10:13 PM Free-agent FS Darian Stewart (Ravens) is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos Thursday, March 12, according to a source.
