Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/11/18 1:00pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (thigh) was not able to practice Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Sutton disappointed last week after taking over the Broncos' No. 1 wide receiver position. If Denzel Ward can't play this week for the Cleveland Browns then Sutton will have a good chance to redeem himself. Put him in starting lineups as a WR3 at worst.
Isaiah McKenzie - WRPosted 12/9/18 3:05pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie caught four passes for 47 yards against the New York Jets in Week 14. He also rushed for 22 yards and one touchdown on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: McKenzie has been targeted 15 times in four games since joining the Bills and also has two rushing touchdowns during that span. He should continue to be involved in the running and passing game and could be a flex option in some leagues.
DaeSean Hamilton - WRPosted 12/9/18 7:41pm ET
Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton caught seven of his nine targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in a 20-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Hamilton entered the game with five catches for 61 yards, but he tied for the team lead in receptions in the first game since Emmanuel Sanders was lost to injury. It remains to be seen how the receiver pecking order will play out without Sanders, but Hamilton could be worth a flier on the waiver wire.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/9/18 7:35pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton caught two of his six targets for 14 yards in a 20-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Sutton appeared poised for a big performance with Emmanuel Sanders out of the picture, but he was basically a non-factor. He still possesses enough upside to roll out as a WR3, but fantasy owners may need to temper expectations.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 12/9/18 7:31pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed 14 times for 30 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 21 yards in a 20-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Lindsay salvaged his day with the touchdown, but it snapped a stretch of strong showings from the rookie. Look for him to return to his RB2 ways against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 12/9/18 7:25pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum completed 24 of his 42 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown and rushed four times for 24 yards in a 20-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Keenum has now thrown for one touchdown or less in four of the last five games, and with limited weapons in the passing game, his lackluster season seems destined to continue.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/9/18 8:00pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (thigh) played through a thigh injury in a 20-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The injury could help to explain Sutton's disappointing performance, and it is something to monitor going forward. If he happens to miss time, Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton could both have flex potential.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/7/18 1:50pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Sutton likely will be the main option in the passing game for the Broncos with Emmanuel Sanders out for the season. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/7/18 9:02pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton faces the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14, and the 49ers have allowed a league-high 19 touchdown receptions to wide receivers this season.
Huddle Up: Sutton had four catches for 85 yards and a touchdown last week, and with Emmanuel Sanders now out of action, Sutton should see even more looks. Throw in the friendly matchup, and WR2 production isn't out of the question.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/7/18 10:17pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') had successful surgery to repair his Achilles' tendon Thursday, Dec. 6. His rehab is expected to take between six and eight months.
Huddle Up: We've seen various time frames thrown out there, though all of them seem to include the possibility of Sanders being ready to go in Week 1 next season. Of course, a lot can happen between now and then, and no matter how his recovery progresses there's going to be some uncertainty surrounding Sanders coming off a major injury and entering his age-32 season.
River Cracraft - WRPosted 12/6/18 9:28am ET
Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton will be featured in the slot going forward with the loss of WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles'). WR River Cracraft is also expected to see time in the slot position.
Huddle Up: Hamilton, Tim Patrick and Cracraft are now on the fantasy radar, if they weren't already. Hamilton and Patrick especially are worth picking up in deeper leagues. Courtland Sutton is the belle of the ball, though, and has WR2 appeal henceforth.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/6/18 9:45am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') has a long road ahead of him in his recovery from a torn Achilles' tendon. Former NFL team doctor David Chao said the earlier expected recover time is six months for this injury, but players aren't always at full health that soon. A more realistic recover time is between nine months to a year, according to Chao.
Huddle Up: That timeframe means Sanders wouldn't be fully healthy by the time the 2019 season commenced. He'll be 32 years old early next year and an uncertain NFL future is ahead of him. As has been stated ad nauseam, Courtland possesses WR2 upside in Sanders' absence, with DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick garnering attention in deeper leagues.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/6/18 3:23pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (ankle) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 6.
Huddle Up: Sutton's health should not be a concern heading into Week 14. In fact, his owners should only be excited, as Sutton is looking at a heavy workload in light of Emmanuel Sanders' unfortunate season-ending injury. It's more than possible he flirts with WR2 value down the stretch.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/5/18 11:14am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (leg) was helped to the locker room after injuring his left leg during practice Wednesday, Dec. 5. He was not putting any weight on the leg.
Huddle Up: What's really worrisome is that Sanders wasn't putting any weight on the leg and had to be helped off the field. If he is out this week and/or for an extended amount of time then Courtland Sutton becomes Denver's No. 1 wide receiver. DaeSean Hamilton and Matt LaCosse would also greatly benefit.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/5/18 11:37am ET
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Sanders is an invaluable part of the Broncos organization and his presence will be greatly missed. Courtland Sutton takes over as the No. 1 wide receiver and is now comfortably in the WR2 conversation. As mentioned earlier, DaeSean Hamilton and Matt LaCosse will see their fantasy value rise, while Devontae Booker could also see more targets.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/5/18 3:36pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (ankle) went through a full practice on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Sutton is coming off of his finest game of the season, going for four grabs, 85 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati. If he is able to play in Week 14 he will be a sleeper WR3 or flex fantasy option. He is starting to develop a nice rapport with Case Keenum, filling the void of the departed Demaryius Thomas rather nicely.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/5/18 3:33pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Sanders has managed at least four receptions in all 12 of his games to date which makes him an outstanding low-end WR2 or flex fantasy play in most PPR leagues. Hopefully he'll rebound from a season-low 19 yards. Check back Friday for his official injury designation before making a final call for Week 14.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/2/18 1:04pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (head) was evaluated to a concussion during the Week 13 but was cleared to return.
Huddle Up: Sanders has been the top receiver for the Broncos over the last several weeks and should be a solid No. 2 receiver for fantasy owners moving forward.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 12/2/18 2:23pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed 19 times for 157 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has jumped into the front seat for carries in Denver ahead of Royce Freeman and he isn't lessening his grip on the No. 1 job. He had 20 total touches to 12 for Freeman, and the gap could get wider heading into Week 14 in San Francisco after this big day.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 12/2/18 2:08pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum completed 12-of-21 passes for 151 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Keenum has 205 or less passing yards in each of the past two outings, and just 11 TD passes with seven INTs over his past 11 outings. Needless to say, he remains more of a low-end QB2 heading into Week 14 in San Francisco. The team isn't likely to change its offensive approach since they've been winning, too.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 12/2/18 2:26pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman rushed 12 times for 48 yards in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Freeman is clearly behind Phillip Lindsay in the pecking order for carries, and Lindsay racked up 157 yards and two touchdowns to pull even further ahead. Don't be surprised if there is a bigger disparity in touches heading into Week 14 in San Francisco, which is bad news for the short-term outlook for Freeman.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/2/18 2:48pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted just four grabs for 19 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Sanders was dealing with a heel injury heading into this one, so perhaps that was what set him back. Courtland Sutton stepped up and filled the void with Sanders not performing to his usual level. The Broncos head to San Francisco in Week 14.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 12/2/18 2:30pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton posted four receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Sutton had the most productive outing of his career, and it might be the first of many. The team felt confident jettisoning Demaryius Thomas to clear room for Sutton and that decision is starting to bear fruit. He is worth a look as a WR4 heading into Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/30/18 4:27pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 30, but is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Sanders has been targeted at least six times in all but two games this season and has taken over the team's top receiver job. He should have success against the Cincinnati Bengals this week and can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/29/18 12:42pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (heel) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.
Huddle Up: Expect Sanders to play as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks over the next couple of days. He's primed for another scrumptious game in a solid matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals after posting seven catches for 86 yards and a touchdown last week.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 11/27/18 9:41am ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay ranks third in the league in rushing (434 yards) and second in yards per carry (5.86) since Week 7.
Huddle Up: The explosive Lindsay took advantage of Royce Freeman's two-game injury absence to seize control of the Broncos' starting gig and comes out of Week 12 ranked 11th among fantasy RBs on the season with 139 points. He's a low-end RB1 consideration the rest of the way.
Jeff Heuerman - TEPosted 11/27/18 1:02pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (ribs, lung) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: The Broncos' tight end room is in shambles. If you're desperate then the best bet to take over the starting position is Matt LaCosse, who caught three passes for 34 yards and found the end zone last week.
Jeff Heuerman - TEPosted 11/26/18 11:16am ET
Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (ribs, lung) sustained broken ribs and a bruised lung in Week 12 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers and will miss the remainder of the season.
Huddle Up: Heuerman had started to come on in recent weeks as a streaming option in fantasy, but this injury obviously puts an end to that. The Ohio State product has struggled to stay healthy since entering the league in 2015 and is not a must-hold in dynasty leagues. Matt LaCosse will most likely take over his role in the offense and can be considered a low-end streamer.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 11/25/18 8:37pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman carries six times for just 17 yards in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: This was the Phillip Lindsay show, as he racked up 110 yards and a touchdown. Head coach Vance Joseph stayed with the hot hand and Freeman was used sparingly. The Broncos travel to Cincinnati in Week 13.
Phillip Lindsay - RBPosted 11/25/18 8:30pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay went for 110 rushing yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: The undrafted free agent out of Colorado continues to surprise, coming out of nowhere to roll up the second-most rushing yards (749) for a rookie this season. He trails only Saquon Barkley of the Giants in that category.
