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

May 20, 12:43 PM The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.
May 16, 11:52 PM Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer will step in as an outside receiver when the team uses three-receiver sets this year.
May 08, 10:52 PM Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson was a 'little chubby' and wore down quick at times last year, according to former offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who now works for the Oakland Raiders.
Apr 30, 03:32 PM Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball is confident that he will regain the lead-back role with the team, but admitted that RB C.J. Anderson deserves the job right now. Ball is currently behind Anderson and RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart. Ball blames an appendectomy in August of last year for weakening his core, which then led to a torn right groin that put him on Injured Reserve. He had just 172 yards on 55 carries and a touchdown in 2014. Ball started feeling better in February and has spent the last three months working on his flexibility with a personal trainer.
Apr 30, 01:42 PM Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) has been cleared to continue his playing career by one of the top concussion doctors. Welker said he did well in all of the tests during his visit with the doctor. Welker is working out in Florida and waiting to sign with a team.
Apr 29, 04:53 PM Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) said he should be at full speed when training camp starts in late July. Trevathan is practicing on a limited basis during voluntary minicamp as he is recovering from season-ending knee surgery.
Apr 29, 02:43 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels good physically and does not see the 2015 season as a farewell tour. Manning said the team has been learning head coach Gary Kubiak's offense during offseason workouts.
Apr 29, 01:23 PM Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) said he has been limited during offseason workouts since he is returning from multiple knee injuries. Trevathan said his goal for this upcoming season is to stay healthy.
Apr 29, 01:53 AM Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) was able to take part in workouts as the team started its offseason program Tuesday, April 28.
Apr 28, 09:03 PM Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning took part in the first day of veteran's mini camp Tuesday, April 28. Manning wouldn't say whether 2015 would be his last season in the NFL, 'I feel good physically, and the whole team, including me, is just excited to get back on the field,' Manning said. 'We've been here a couple weeks, lifting and meeting, but it's always nice to get back on the football field.'
Apr 28, 01:23 PM Denver Broncos DE Quanterus Smith (knee) was waived Tuesday, April 28, after a failed physical on his left knee. Smith played in 15 games last year and had 11 tackles and zero sacks.
Apr 28, 10:32 AM Denver Broncos DE Quanterus Smith was waived Tuesday, April 28, according to a source.
Apr 27, 04:42 PM Denver Broncos CB Tony Carter signed his restricted free-agent tender Monday, April 27. The tender is worth $1.542 million.
Apr 23, 03:32 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has decided not to participate in offseason workouts because he does not want to suffer an injury, but general manager John Elway does not know why Thomas is sitting out. 'That makes no sense to me, him not getting hurt,' Elway said. 'If he gets hurt here, he's covered. If he gets hurt on his own... I don't understand it all. It makes no sense for him.'
Apr 23, 01:53 AM Denver Broncos OG Louis Vasquez will move back from right tackle to right guard for the 2015 season, and he is very happy. 'My mentality is I'm a guard,' Vasquez said Wednesday, April 22. 'I would love to stay inside the trenches. That's how my mentality is. I'm a big, strong guy. I like to get physical. Being out on the outside, it's more finesse. Guys want to rush the passers and that's not my forte.'
Apr 22, 09:03 PM Free agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is considered even less likely to sign with the Miami Dolphins, after Miami reportedly signed WR Greg Jennings to a two-year deal Wednesday, April 22.
