2014 DRAFT GUIDE

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 04, 03:23 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is close to agreeing to a new contract in which he would take a $4 million pay cut, according to sources.
Mar 03, 01:33 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent FS Rahim Moore could have a suitor in the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency. The Eagles' new secondary coach, Cory Undlin, held the same position with the Broncos the last two years.
Mar 03, 03:03 AM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has the non-exclusive franchise tag, which means Thomas can have talks with other teams but those teams must supply two draft picks to the Broncos if Thomas signs with another club.
Mar 02, 02:32 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas officially received the franchise tag Monday, March 2.
Mar 01, 11:12 PM The Denver Broncos are expected to use the franchise tag on WR Demaryius Thomas Monday, March 2, all but ensuring the team keeps the wideout for the 2015 season. They are expected to use the 'nonexclusive' tag, which makes it possible for other teams to negotiate with Thomas. However, the team has the right to match any offer, and if he is signed away the team is compensated by the signing team with two first-round draft picks.
Mar 01, 08:14 PM The Miami Dolphins are interested in impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos), but he might be far more costly than some of their other targets and it is unclear if they can compete financially for him.
Feb 27, 09:52 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas will be pursued aggressively by the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
Feb 27, 09:42 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is drawing interest from the Oakland Raiders, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Feb 25, 09:23 PM The Denver Broncos and representatives for QB Peyton Manning are working on revising the veteran's contract, according to multiple league sources. He is scheduled to draw a $19 million salary in 2015 and 2016. Manning has informed the team he intends to keep playing, and the Broncos did not formally interview any quarterbacks at the NFL Combine last week.
Feb 24, 06:23 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas could very well be on his way out of Denver this offseason, which would leave a big void for Denver, especially in the red zone. Before Thomas was injured last season, he led the NFL in red zone touchdowns with nine. He was second in the league with a 77 percent touchdown rate in the red zone. Following the injury, the Broncos ended the regular season with a 62 percent touchdown frequency in the red zone.
Feb 24, 10:03 AM Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is drawing interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars if he reaches free agency.
Feb 23, 10:13 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton is unlikely to be back with the team in 2015, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Klis believes the only chance Denver has of re-signing Knighton is if the market for his services is unexpectedly weak.
Feb 23, 06:33 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is unlikely to be re-signed by the team, as his market value will likely exceed what the Broncos are willing to pay. The Broncos tried to sign Thomas to a five-year, $40 million extension last summer, but he wasn't comfortable with the guaranteed money and structuring.
Feb 23, 06:23 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton, OG Orlando Franklin and FS Rahim Moore are not expected to return to the team next season.
Feb 23, 06:23 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton, OG Orlando Franklin and FS Rahim Moore are not expected to return to the team next season.
Feb 23, 06:23 PM Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Nate Irving, C Will Montgomery and TEs Virgil Green and Jacob Tamme are priorities to be re-signed this offseason. However, Irving figures to test the free-agent market with LBs Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall set as inside linebackers. Green could take on a much bigger role if TE Julius Thomas leaves via free agency.
