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.
