Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/23/18 1:20pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) said his rehab is going well and believes his ankle is at around 95 percent.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Sanders' situation this offseason to see if he will stay with the Broncos or if he will join a new team. He has been a solid receiver over the last few years and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver in 2018.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 2/21/18 12:43pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is expected to be on the trading block this offseason as the Broncos look to add at the position via free agency and/or the draft.
Huddle Up: Siemian was never able to find his groove in 2017. When he was healthy he was prone to turn the ball over much too often. Perhaps a team like the Arizona Cardinals would be willing to part with a late-round pick since Denver's former offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, now serves in the same role in Arizona. Nonetheless, Siemian is not a starting fantasy quarterback.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 2/19/18 3:33pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson could be pursued by the Miami Dolphins again if he were to be released by the Broncos. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase and new running backs coach Eric Studesville both coached Anderson in Denver and Miami gave Anderson an offer just two years ago before it was matched by the Broncos.
Huddle Up: It's a potentially sensible move, but Anderson needs to be released first. Kenyan Drake would still have the most potential in Miami's backfield, but Anderson would certainly hurt his fantasy ceiling. This is all conjecture at this point, but stay tuned as free agency approaches.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 2/17/18 8:00pm ET
The Denver Broncos are hoping RB Devontae Booker emerges as the No. 1 running back in 2018, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, and Legwold believes RB C.J. Anderson may not be back with the team.
Huddle Up: Booker has flashed some potential with limited touches, and his fantasy value would receive a big boost if Anderson ends up elsewhere next season.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/14/18 10:22am ET
Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders could both stay on the roster in an effort to better lure a big-name quarterback, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanders, in particular, had been rumored to be traded or released this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Broncos need more money to make a good pitch to someone like Kirk Cousins. If they keep Thomas and Sanders then they'll likely released Aqib Talib and C.J. Anderson. If they do land a top quarterback then the fantasy value of both Thomas and Sanders will naturally increase.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 2/10/18 9:22am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders could be placed on the trade block this offseason because of his salary and his uncertain durability, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala. Sanders missed four games this season because of an ankle injury and is scheduled to have salary cap hits of around $10.9 million and $12.9 million over the next two seasons.
Huddle Up: Sanders had a disappointing 2017 season with only 555 yards and two touchdowns. He has been a solid receiver since entering the league but may be on the move during the offseason. He can be a starter for most teams in the NFL and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his team.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 2/10/18 9:20am ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has a $1 million option in his contract that would trigger the final two years of the contract if exercised, and the Broncos have until the middle of March to make a decision on the option. The team would take on $3.1 million in dead money if they decide to decline the option. Thomas would count around $12 million and $17.5 million in the cap space over the next two seasons if the option is picked up.
Huddle Up: Thomas saw a small drop in his stats this season but still finished with 83 receptions, 949 yards and five touchdowns. Thomas should be a starting receiver for a team in 2018 and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Von Miller - LBPosted 1/31/18 10:34am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would be welcomed by Denver Broncos LB Von Miller. 'Kirk could take us over the edge,' Miller said, 'but that's the National Football League. There are a lot of teams that need Kirk.'
Huddle Up: Miller is right, and some of those teams have a lot more salary cap space than the Broncos, although Cousins has said he wants to be on a winning team. Even if Cousins joins the Cleveland Browns or New York Jets, he will remain a QB1 candidate.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 1/12/18 6:35pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas could be asked to restructure his contract or be cut, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 Sports, because of a provision that allows Denver to void the final two years of his contract if his $4 million option bonus is not picked up by the end of the league year on March 14.
Huddle Up: Thomas failed to reach 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011. Denver's quarterback situation certainly didn't help, but age is not on his side either. If Denver lands a proven quarterback or if Thomas ends up with a better offense, he may have one more big year in him. For now, consider him a WR3 with a safer floor in PPR formats.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/31/17 7:57pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had 83 catches for 949 yards in 2017, finishing with fewer than 90 receptions and less than 1,000 yards for the first time since 2011.
Huddle Up: Thomas should remain with the Broncos in 2018, but unless Denver can figure out its quarterback situation, he will likely underperform again next year.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/29/17 3:57pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 29, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 17 start against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Lynch will make the start, but he is apparently not 100 percent and his status during the game will be a matter of how much pain he can endure apparently. He is not a recommended fantasy starter even if he were fully healthy.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/28/17 11:34am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Sanders appears to be headed for another missed game. If he and Cody Latimer both can't play again then Bennie Fowler should start opposite Demaryius Thomas. In that case, Thomas would be the only startable Denver receiver.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/28/17 3:38pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Lynch is expected to be the starting quarterback this week but may be without some of his receivers because of injuries. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/28/17 9:34pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is still bothered by his ankle, and the injury will be a 'factor' in Week 17, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave.
Huddle Up: If you needed another reason not to start Lynch this Sunday, here it is. Even against a watered-down Chiefs defense the second-year pro is a risky play with a low ceiling.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/27/17 12:42pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was a non-participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Sanders could finish his forgettable season on the sidelined this week. If he's able to play he'll still have Paxton Lynch throwing his way. Do not start Emmanuel Sanders.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/27/17 3:34pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Lynch appears to be in line to start the regular-season finale, but he isn't someone to rely upon as a streaming option in seasonal play or even as a low-end DFS option.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/27/17 3:33pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Sanders hasn't been 100 percent for a majority of the season after suffering an ankle injury early on. After some early production he has been fighting it while also having to deal with a quarterback turnstile in the Mile High City.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/26/17 2:53pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas needs 108 receiving yards in Week 17 to reach 1,000 yards for the sixth straight season. He would be the second Broncos wide receiver to achieve the feat.
Huddle Up: Thomas had an offseason by his standards, there's no getting around it. A lot of his struggles were thanks to poor play by the quarterbacks and the offensive line. Even so, Thomas will be a high-end WR2 consideration as Denver's top target.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/25/17 1:45pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) will receive playing time in Week 17, according to head coach Vance Joseph.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Lynch will start the game, but owners will know more about his role later in the week. He has only received limited playing time this season and can be avoided in all leagues.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 12/24/17 6:29am ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is expected to serve as the backup to QB Brock Osweiler for Week 16's game against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Lynch was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in two limited practice sessions and one full session during the week. The team hopes he will be healthy enough to start Week 17's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs but he should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/24/17 7:05pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught four passes on six targets for 52 yards in a 23-13 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: The passing game was never in sync, and Thomas actually led the team in receiving. With Brock Osweiler struggling, Thomas will be no more than a WR3 in the season finale.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 12/24/17 6:59pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes for 45 yards in a 27-11 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was an ugly performance from the Denver offense as a whole, but Anderson has strung together back-to-back solid outings. He should be a RB2 against the Kansas City Chiefs in the season finale.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 12/24/17 7:43pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler completed 22 of 38 passes for 193 yards and an interception in a 27-11 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: After an impressive relief appearance last weekend, Osweiler looked like the ineffective quarterback we are used to seeing. Avoid him in the season finale.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 12/24/17 7:46pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker rushed eight times for 47 yards and caught five passes for 24 yards in a 27-11 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 16. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Booker flashes occasional potential, but he remains a dynasty league stash for now.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/23/17 2:14pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) did not travel with the team for their Week 16 game and has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: Bennie Fowler likely will enter the starting lineup with Sanders and Cody Latimer ruled out. He has 294 yards and three touchdowns in limited playing time this season but can be avoided in all leagues.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/22/17 4:25pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, but is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Lynch is still a candidate to start for the Broncos this week, so owners can monitor the situation over the next few days. He has only received limited playing time this season and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/22/17 4:20pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check in the inactive list to see if Sanders will be able to play in Week 16. He is coming off a solid Week 15 performance but has not been a great fantasy option this month. Owners could consider benching Sanders if they have better options available.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 12/22/17 6:29pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is expected to start against the Washington Redskins in Week 16 because QB Paxton Lynch (ankle) is still favoring his sprained right ankle.
Huddle Up: Osweiler was shockingly effective after replacing an injured Trevor Siemian in Week 15, but trusting your fantasy playoff hopes to Osweiler is a recipe for disappointment.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/22/17 9:17pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) said he is still sore, and Mike Klis of 9News.com believes Sanders is unlikely to play against the Washington Redskins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: If Sanders is sidelined, Demaryius Thomas should see plenty of targets. The Redskins have been solid against opposing receivers, but Thomas should be a volume-based WR3.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/21/17 11:32am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was not practicing Thursday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Sanders didn't practice yesterday either, so his status could come down to a game-time decision. If Sanders is out or limited at all then Cody Latimer becomes even more of an intriguing play.
