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.
