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

Aug 27, 10:31 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) made another positive step Tuesday, Aug. 26, in his recovery from another concussion, according to head coach John Fox. Welker has still not been ruled out for Week 1.

Aug 27, 06:23 AM Veteran free-agent CB Quentin Jammer (Chargers) does not intend to call it quits this season even though he isn't on an active roster. Jammer has indicated he wants to play at least one more season.
Aug 26, 05:13 PM Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is still not at 100 percent in his recovery from an injured right quadriceps. Sanders takes breaks during practice to avoid aggravating the injury.

Aug 25, 07:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 25.
Aug 25, 04:13 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) could play in the team's regular season opener Sunday, September 7, if he does not have any concussion symptoms by Monday, September 1. Head coach John Fox iterated that the team's primary focus is Welker's safety.
Aug 24, 11:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has a good chance to play in Week 1, according to Mike Klis of The Denver Post. Welker suffered a concussion in the team's third preseason game, but his 'concussion helmet' helped absorb the blow.

Fantasy Impact: This is good to hear. It sounds like he avoided something too serious.
Aug 24, 10:32 PM The Denver Broncos waived RB Brennan Clay, RB Jerodis Williams, WR Greg Hardin, WR Greg Wilson, QB Bryn Renner, LB Jerrell Harris, CB Charles Mitchell and DL Will Pericak Sunday, Aug. 24. LB Chase Vaughn (undisclosed) was waived/injured.
Aug 24, 09:42 PM The Denver Broncos released OT Winston Justice and LB Jamar Chaney Sunday, Aug. 24.
