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

Oct 19, 11:02 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning left the Week 7 game against the San Francisco early in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score. He led Denver to a 42-10 lead early in the fourth quarter before giving way to QB Brock Osweiler. Manning finished the game 22 of 28 for 318 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Manning is having another terrific season. He just isn't slowing down.
Oct 19, 09:53 PM Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw his third touchdown of the first half of Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers to WR Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter. It was the 509th touchdown pass of Manning's career, as he moved into the top spot in NFL history for career touchdown passes.
Oct 19, 09:02 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has had two offensive drives in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers so far, and both have resulted in touchdown passes. He ties former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre for the most touchdown passes in NFL history with 508.
Oct 19, 07:32 PM The Denver Broncos have declared OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, DL Mitch Unrein, RB Montee Ball, LB Shaquil Barrett, CB Tony Carter inactive for Week 7.
Oct 18, 04:52 PM Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is slotted behind RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart, and he is a versatile back. He never rushed for more than 500 yards in a season in college, but he caught the ball well, blocked well and played special teams. He even started a game at linebacker in college.
Oct 18, 04:42 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will have a difficult time regaining the featured-back role this season after his injury. It's beat writer Mike Klis' opinion that Ball never fully recovered from his appendectomy, which could have been a precursor to his groin injury.

Fantasy Impact: We wouldn't rule him out to start by any means. He still has a ton of talent. Ball just needs to get healthy.
Oct 17, 06:32 PM Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (groin), FS David Bruton (ankle), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Corey Nelson (hamstring) and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are listed as probable for Week 7.
Oct 17, 06:22 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Oct 17, 06:22 PM Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.
Oct 17, 08:42 AM Denver Broncos OLB Von Miller (knee) has shed the brace on his knee, which is an indicator he's all the way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Miller has five sacks in six games thus far.
Oct 16, 06:52 PM Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.
Oct 16, 06:52 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) missed his second straight practice this week Thursday, Oct. 16.
Oct 16, 06:52 PM Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (groin), S David Bruton (ankle), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Corey Nelson (hamstring) and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) practiced in full.
Oct 15, 07:33 PM Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 15.
Oct 15, 07:03 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Impact: Ball is going to miss another week of action.
Oct 15, 06:53 PM Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. CB Omar Bolden (groin), S David Bruton (ankle), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee) and LB Corey Nelson (hamstring) practiced in full.
