2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Denver Broncos
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Broncos are a top-notch team that gets it done on both sides of the ball. The offense is one of the best in the game with Peyton Manning leading the way. And the defense is overlooked at times but can be dominate at times. Denver is running out of time with some veterans on the team, so this might be the last year for them to make a deep run. It wouldn‚??t surprise to see them represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. The talent is there for this team to make a long run this season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Cody Latimer had a quiet rookie season but is ready to take a leap forward this year. He‚??ll be the No. 3 receiver for the Broncos and get a chance for a lot more playing time. He is a big-play threat at the position that will get weekly chances to stretch the field. Don‚??t forget about Latimer on draft day because of a disappointing season last year. He is the future at the position for the Broncos and will get his chances to shine this year.
FANTASY DUD
Emmanuel Sanders had a career season last year, getting a chance to shine as a starting receiver for the high-powered Broncos. His numbers took a bit of a dip late in the year when the Broncos took a more conservative approach. Sanders had fewer than 75 yards five straight games to end his season. He had 100-yard games seven of 11 games to start the year, so he had a drop off late in the year. The Broncos might not be as pass-first this year, which could mean more of the same for Sanders. He‚??ll get his work but don‚??t expect him to repeat his great overall season from last year.

Team Notes

Aug 01, 02:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Kyle Williams (Achilles') suffered at least a partially torn Achilles' tendon in practice Saturday, Aug. 1, according to a source. He may be out for the season.
Jul 31, 12:32 PM Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas ran routes with teammate WR Emmanuel Sanders Friday, July 31, in practice. Thomas has been eased back into the mix after a contract dispute.
Jul 30, 08:32 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will need to rely on the run game in 2015, according to general manager John Elway Thursday, July 30. 'What I can say, late in my career, that was my best friend, the running game. And I think that running game will be Peyton's best friend also,' said Elway.
Jul 30, 08:22 PM Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (hamstring) will be eased in slowly during training camp, as a precaution for the hamstring issues that slowed him down during minicamp.
Jul 30, 04:52 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas will be eased back into the offense this offseason because of his late return to the team. The Broncos want to gauge where Thomas is physically before he's cleared for full contact practices.
Jul 24, 01:52 PM Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe was suspended four games by the NFL for testing positive for a performance enhancing drug. Wolfe said he took a medication he didn't know was banned.
Jul 22, 03:02 PM Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green is expected to receive more playing time this season and receive more targets than he has had in the past.
Jul 20, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) appears to be completely healed from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last summer. He did well in organized team activities (OTAs), and was running crisp routes. He is in the mix to serve on punt-return duties.
Jul 20, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Nathan Palmer is in the hunt for a spot on the 53-man roster, but he likely needs an outstanding training camp and big play in the preseason to land a job.
Jul 20, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is signed to his five-year deal, but he missed all of the offseason workouts and organized team activities (OTAs), so it will take a bit of time before he is up to speed.
Jul 20, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell is in the final year of his contract. He will be battling other receivers for backup spots, but is believed to be at the top of the list for the No. 4 job. He could be especially useful if he works his way into a kickoff return job.
Jul 20, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had a breakout season and Pro Bowl appearance in 2014, but with a tweaked offense under head coach Gary Kubiak the receiver might see fewer passes thrown his way.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders is setup to take a step backwards this season, so don't value him based on last season.
Jul 20, 10:12 PM Denver Broncos WR Solomon Patton has a unique skill set, and he is likened to former Broncos WR and kickoff return man Trindon Holliday. He is in the mix for a spot on kickoffs and punt returns, but needs to show even more explosiveness to stick around. He could even have spot use on offense, but he needs to take care of the ball better.
Jul 20, 10:12 PM Denver Broncos WR Kyle Williams is looking to make an impression on special teams to earn a roster spot in training camp and the preseason. He has averaged 24.0 yards per kickoff return, and 8.1 yards per punt return. However, he also has fumbled once every 15.5 opportunities during his career, something he needs to cure if he wants to find a job.
Jul 20, 06:52 PM Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer showed improvement during offseason workouts while working with the starting offense, and head coach Gary Kubiak is excited about Latimer will add to the offense. 'I'm really excited about what he can bring and I know he's a lot better now than when he started,' Kubiak said. 'I'm excited moving forward.'

Fantasy Impact: Latimer is generating a lot of buzz but don't overpay for him come draft day. He has a lot of players to compete with for targets.
Jul 18, 03:02 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he wants to set the single-season record for receiving yards this year. Thomas also said he'd like to lead the league in touchdowns.
