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.

Aug 26, 10:33 AM Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus won the kicking job as PK Connor Barth was released Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Impact: This is a bit of of an upset. He has good fantasy value as the top kicker for one of the best offenses in football. Move him up your draft boards.

Aug 25, 11:12 AM Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will receive more repetitions in the offense, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. 'He's moved himself up. He's had a really good camp,' Kubiak said. 'He deserves more reps and if he keeps playing like that he'll continue to get some more.'
Aug 24, 05:22 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball has already lost the backup running back role to RB Ronnie Hillman. RB Juwan Thompson may also surpass Ball in the near future, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

Fantasy Impact: Ball is a guy to avoid come draft day right now. He might do well to land on another team.
Aug 24, 04:32 PM Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (knee) briefly left the second preseason game because of a knee injury but was able to return. Ray said he should be fine moving forward.
Aug 24, 04:32 PM Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has worked his way the second running back position behind RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman said head coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme has helped his play. 'It opens up holes? I'm getting some lanes,' Hillman said.

Fantasy Impact: Hillman is the handcuff to C.J. Anderson right now. Plan accordingly.

Aug 23, 10:02 AM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning looked fine running the team's new offensive scheme during the second preseason game, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. 'I thought he was fine,' Kubiak said. 'We hurt him; we dropped two big third downs, and had a couple of penalties that stalled drives, but as far as him, he looked fine.'
Aug 22, 10:12 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning finished 8-of-14 for 52 yards in a preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 22, and the offense punted on all four of Manning's drives.
