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

Sep 19, 02:42 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has practiced with the team all week and is ready to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He practiced in full all week, and he's listed as probable for Sunday, Sept. 21. 'It's been great,' head coach John Fox said of Welker's work this week. 'He's a veteran guy that attacks preparation, and he's had a great week.' Welker is expected to play, but he may not see a normal number of snaps as he would have if he had practiced more with the team before his suspension.
Sep 19, 12:22 AM Free-agent LB Jamar Chaney (Broncos) worked out for the New Orleans Saints earlier this week.

I appreciate their concern, I do,' Welker said. But at the same time, I feel great. I feel sharp and ready to go.' Head coach John Fox said that Welker's suspension, from a health perspective, may have been a 'blessing in disguise' for Welker.
Sep 17, 06:23 PM Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Sep 17, 06:13 PM Denver Broncos DT Marvin Austin (non-injury), LB Lerentee McCray (knee) and LB Danny Trevathan (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17. S David Bruton (shoulder) and OG Ben Garland (ankle) were limited, while S Quinton Carter (knee), OT Ryan Clady (foot), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee) and LB Von Miller (groin) practiced in full.
Sep 17, 05:13 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker feels great physically and is ready to return to the team, but he stopped short of committing to playing in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. 'That's a coach's decision,' Welker said. ' ... I'm preparing like I'm going to play.' Welker was back on the practice field Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Sep 17, 04:43 PM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.

Fantasy Impact: Welker will be worth using for fantasy teams right now in this offense.
Sep 17, 10:53 AM Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been reinstated Wednesday, Sept. 17, after a new drug testing agreement was reached.

Sep 15, 12:42 PM Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders led the team with eight catches for 108 yards in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.

Fantasy Impact: Needless to say, a move to Denver has treated him well so far.
Sep 15, 02:33 AM In the wake of the season-ending injury to Tennessee Titans LB Zack Brown, the Titans held auditions on Friday, Sept. 12, for linebackers to replace Brown in the lineup. Those trying out included free-agent LBs James Anderson, Nate Askew, Allen Bradford, Larry Dean, L.J. Fort, Will Herring, Paris Lenon, Stephen Nicholas, Justin Staples, and Kion Wilson.
Sep 14, 03:22 PM The Denver Broncos have declared SS David Bruton, CB Tony Carter, OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, LB Danny Trevathan inactive for Week 2.
Sep 13, 10:22 PM Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas dropped three passes in the team's Week 1 game, but he says the rough outing is behind him and expects the fix the problem. 'My main thing was trying to get the ball up the field too fast,' Thomas said. 'So, this week has been mainly watch the ball in before I make the move.'
