C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 1/9/17 4:29pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) has started running on a treadmill and believes he will be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Anderson probably will not do much during the offseason workouts but should enter training camp as the starting running back. He should receive most of the work at the position in 2017 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 1/5/17 7:33pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery on his left shoulder Thursday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: If Siemian can hold off Paxton Lynch and remain the starter in Denver, he will be a midrange QB2 in 2017.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 1/3/17 5:30am ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) will have surgery on his left shoulder this week, and he'll be ready for offseason workouts in April. 'It's optional surgery,'' Siemian said. 'It really only bothers me when I work out but I figure I'm going to have to keep working out for a while so I'm getting it fixed.''
Huddle Up: All things considered, Siemian probably exceeded expectations this season with 3,401 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. There is room to grow for the 25-year-old. He'll be a QB2 next season that could have upside to slip into the low-end QB1 area.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 1/1/17 3:32pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) left the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders due to a foot injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: With the Broncos eliminated from the playoffs and with a healthy lead in the finale, it's likely Sanders is done for the season.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/29/16 7:57pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: Siemian is expected to split time with Paxton Lynch in Week 17, so he needs to be avoided in all formats.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/25/16 9:09pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas caught three of his eight targets for 20 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Trevor Siemian had a bad night, and the Denver offense just couldn't move the ball. Better days should be ahead for Thomas, and he can be a WR2 against Oakland in Week 17.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/25/16 9:06pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders finished with one catch on three targets for 26 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: The Denver offense was a disaster overall, and Sanders was one of the many victims. He should bounce back and produce WR3 numbers against Oakland in Week 17.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/25/16 9:02pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian completed 17 of his 43 pass attempts for 183 yards and an interception in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: After torching the Chiefs the first time around, Siemian looked overmatched in this one. The Denver offense continues to struggle, and Siemian will be no more than a QB2 in Week 17.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 12/25/16 8:57pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker finished with five carries for a team-high 27 yards and six catches for 44 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: The Broncos never established a ground game, and Booker delivered another unimpressive outing. He shouldn't be starting in the regular season finale.
Virgil Green - TEPosted 12/23/16 11:40am ET
Denver Broncos TEs A.J. Derby (concussion) and Virgil Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and are not expected to play in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Denver7's Troy Renck.
Huddle Up: Neither likely absence is all that big from an individual fantasy perspective, but the Broncos struggle for offense enough at full strength, so being without their top two tight ends is a boost for the Chiefs' defense/special teams unit. Jeff Heuerman will likely get the start in their place, but he is well off the fantasy radar.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/23/16 6:24pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot, hip) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not listed on the Week 16 injury report.
Huddle Up: Siemian has struggled to put the ball in the end zone the last two weeks, but a Week 16 matchup against a Kansas City defense he torched to the tune of 368 yards and three touchdowns the first time around could bring an end to the slump. He could be a sleeper QB1 this weekend.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/23/16 6:18pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not listed on the Week 16 injury report.
Huddle Up: Thomas has reached 60 yards five straight games, and he remains one of the steadiest receivers around. Plug him in as a WR2 against a beatable Kansas City secondary in Week 16.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/23/16 6:15pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not listed on the Week 16 injury report.
Huddle Up: Sanders hasn't had a ton of huge games, but he is already over 1,000 yards for the year and should be a high-floor WR3 in Week 16 with WR2 upside in PPR formats.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/21/16 3:33pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Thomas has been a solid option for fantasy owners this season and has posted at least 60 yards in each of the last five games. He will continue to be one of the main targets in the passing game and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all leagues.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/21/16 3:24pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Sanders has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but has posted at least 100 yards in two of his last four games. He has been targeted at least eight times in seven of the last eight games and can be a solid No. 2 receiver in a majority of fantasy leagues.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/21/16 7:00pm ET
The Denver Broncos believe QB Trevor Siemian has led the offense to just one touchdown in the past 10 quarters, but he is steadily gaining more respect from the defense as well as the coaching staff. His calm demeanor and ability to overcome typical mistakes as a first-year starter has management thinking long term, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. 'Talking to people in the building, the thought process is that even though they picked (QB Paxton Lynch) in the first round, (Siemian) is in mind to be the guy moving forward for the next couple of seasons.'
Huddle Up: Siemian surprised by winning the starting job in training camp and the preseason, beating out veteran Mark Sanchez and Lynch. Now, it appears he has done a good enough job to be considered heading into 2017 and beyond.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/21/16 7:00pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch might not necessarily be a shoo-in for the starting job in 2017, as QB Trevor Siemian has impressed with his demeanor. 'Talking to people in the building, the thought process is that even though they picked (Lynch) in the first round, (Siemian) is in mind to be the guy moving forward for the next couple of seasons,' NFL Network's James Palmer said.
Huddle Up: Lynch was drafted in the first round as the future in the Mile High City, but his draft status does not appear to make a difference right now. The team likes what they're seeing from Siemian and Lynch might be years away from fantasy value in re-draft leagues at this point.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 12/21/16 8:15pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) is not likely to return from the Reserve/Injured list this season, head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday, Dec. 21. 'I had a good sit-down with C.J. yesterday. He's doing pretty good. The plan is for him to maybe start running in the next two weeks,' Kubiak said. 'I'd say he's probably on course (to return) sometime in February.'
Huddle Up: Anderson was dropped from plenty of fantasy rosters when he was originally hurt near the end of October. For those picking him up recently, it appears you can safely drop him and add someone else who will help.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/15/16 7:28pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.
Huddle Up: Siemian has had some big games in recent weeks, but a tough matchup against New England in Week 15 pushes him into QB2 territory.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 12/13/16 7:38am ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (knee) has shed his knee brace in his recovery from knee surgery, according to a video he posted on social media Monday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Anderson could possibly return for Week 17, but the impact in fantasy will probably be minimal. If anything, he could be a player to keep in mind for a DFS play in the final week or a potential playoff run.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/13/16 5:51pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian is one of three quarterbacks to average at least 300 passing yards since Week 8. He has averaged 303.8 yards in that span. Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins (341.5) and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (312.0) are the other two.
Huddle Up: Siemian has been forced to throw more late in the season due to underperforming running back play. He'd been impressive for the most part in his first season as starter, but he's not a recommended start in the fantasy playoffs this week against a tougher New England Patriots pass defense.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 12/12/16 12:37pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker 'has to step up to the plate,' according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak added that a lot has been put on Booker's plate and that he believes in the rookie running back.
Huddle Up: Booker hasn't been able to fully take advantage of his volume since C.J. Anderson was injured. He is averaging only 3.4 yards per carry and has yet to eclipse more than 85 rushing yards. Booker will be splitting time with Justin Forsett going forward, too, so don't view him as more than a flex at this point.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/11/16 6:44pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) was able to start in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, and he completed 35 of his 51 pass attempts for 334 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.
Huddle Up: Siemian did not make any mistakes, but he also didn't do much outside of the decent yardage total. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues when healthy.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 12/11/16 7:04pm ET
Denver Broncos rookie RB Devontae Booker rushed just three times for one yard in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans and he added two catches for 10 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Booker had five total touches to nine touches for newcomer Justin Forsett, a player head coach Gary Kubiak trusts from their days together in Baltimore. That trust is bad news for the fantasy prospects of Booker going forward, unless of course he gets a hot hand early and Kubiak elects to ride him.
A.J. Derby - TEPosted 12/11/16 7:03pm ET
Denver Broncos TE A.J. Derby managed five catches for 57 yards on his five targets in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Derby is taking advantage of his increased playing time of late. However, despite a larger role in the offense he is still nothing more than a low-end TE2 at this point.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 12/11/16 7:02pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders WR Emmanuel Sanders hauled in 11 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Sanders has picked up the pace lately, posting two 100-yard receiving games with two visits to the end zone over the past three games. He remains a solid WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 15.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 12/11/16 7:02pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas posted 10 receptions for a season-high 126 yards in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans. He was targeted 16 times.
Huddle Up: Thomas was busy in the low-scoring loss, posting his first 100-yard game since Week 3. He has been held out of the end zone in five of his past six games, however, and should be treated more as a WR2 in all fantasy formats.
Justin Forsett - RBPosted 12/11/16 7:01pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Justin Forsett rushed six times for 17 yards in his team debut in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans. He added three receptions for 18 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Forsett is expected to fill the role of Kapri Bibbs as the backup to rookie Devontae Booker. He is only worth fantasy consideration in the deepest of fantasy leagues this point.
Trevor Siemian - QBPosted 12/9/16 10:55am ET
Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) is 'progressing toward playing' in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, although it is far from a certainty, according to 9News' Mike Klis.
Huddle Up: The fantasy fortunes of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders rely heavily on Siemian's return, as rookie Paxton Lynch has looked overwhelmed in his first two career starts. Klis suggested whatever improvement Siemian can make in his mobility over the next two days will likely be key to his activation. Given the struggles of the Titans' pass defense, Siemian will be a high-upside QB2 and solid contrarian DFS option should he play.
Paxton Lynch - QBPosted 12/7/16 10:53pm ET
Denver Broncos rookie QB Paxton Lynch will get ready to play in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday, Dec. 7. QB Trevor Siemian (foot) might practice Thursday, Dec. 8, but the starting signal caller is up in the air and Kubiak said both Siemian and Lynch are preparing.
Huddle Up: Lynch didn't overwhelm in Week 13 in his second start of the season. If he gets the nod again, he is only worth a look as a low-end QB2 in the deepest of fantasy leagues using two starting signal callers.
