Royce Freeman - RBPosted 7/19/18 8:04pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman 'catches the ball well,' according to head coach Vance Joseph.
Huddle Up: Freeman is already expected to see his share of carries on early downs, and if he can contribute in the passing game, it will only improve his chances of becoming the unquestioned lead back. He's a RB3 candidate in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 7/14/18 9:33pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will be given every opportunity to earn the starting job, according to retired SS Steve Atwater.
Huddle Up: Freeman will have to contend with Devontae Booker, but Booker hasn't exactly shown much upside. Don't be surprised if Freeman ends up handling a lot of early-down work. He's a RB3 candidate in redraft leagues and is locked in as a first-round prospect in rookie drafts.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 7/6/18 9:03pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said he needs to clean up some drops but still views himself as a No. 1 receiver.
Huddle Up: Thomas has been the victim of inconsistent quarterback play the last couple of seasons, but he still managed 83 catches for 949 yards in 2017. The Broncos added Case Keenum to stabilize the quarterback situation, and Thomas should be able to flirt with WR2 status, especially in PPR formats.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 7/5/18 11:04am ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman is signing his four-year rookie deal Thursday, July 5, according to a source. The deal includes a $997,020 signing bonus, but other financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Freeman is poised to take over the starting job in Denver's backfield, but he'll need to fend off Devontae Booker in training camp and the preseason. At least look for Freeman to see the majority of carries en route to a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 rookie campaign.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 6/25/18 8:00am ET
Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has the opportunity to be the team's lead back, according to head coach Vance Joseph.
Huddle Up: The Broncos haven't had a back carry the ball 250 times since 2004, and Freeman would likely share the load with Devontae Booker. If Freeman is able to grab at least a 50-50 split, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 6/23/18 7:28pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman has a chance to do 'Kareem Hunt type things,' according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Freeman should at least be part of the running back rotation in Denver, and he has a decent chance to emerge as the lead back, especially on early downs. If he breaks camp as the starter, he is worth grabbing as a RB3, and he is a potential first-round pick in rookie drafts regardless.
DaeSean Hamilton - WRPosted 6/21/18 8:35pm ET
Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton can be counted on to run the proper routes, according to QB Case Keenum. 'To have a receiver that you can count on to be in the right place at the right time, that's always a huge plus,' Keenum said.
Huddle Up: Hamilton has some veterans in front of him that will limit his appeal in redraft leagues, but he is a player to stash in keeper format.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 6/21/18 8:22pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is a 'friendly target,' according to QB Case Keenum. 'I like throwing him the football,' Keenum said.
Huddle Up: Sutton's size could make him a factor in the red zone early on, but despite Keenum's praise, he has too much talent in front of him in Denver to be owned in redraft leagues right now. However, Sutton does need to be owned in all keeper formats.
DaeSean Hamilton - WRPosted 6/16/18 8:43pm ET
Denver Broncos WR DaeSean Hamilton should 'play plenty' this season, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas will cap Hamilton's upside for now, but they won't be around forever. He could be a great stash candidate in dynasty formats.
Jake Butt - TEPosted 6/14/18 7:35pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) is 'obviously a playmaker,' according to head coach Vance Joseph, and Joseph said he is 'very excited' with Butt's progress.
Huddle Up: Butt lost his rookie season to a knee injury, but he's in the mix to start this year. He is worth a flier as a TE2 in redraft leagues, and he's a solid asset in dynasty formats.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 6/12/18 12:10pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (foot) tweaked his foot at minicamp Tuesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: There's nothing major here. The main worry with Thomas is his hip injury history and the cast around him. Keep tabs on Thomas' status in the coming days and weeks, but he shouldn't miss much practice time.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 6/4/18 11:03am ET
Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders were not present for organized team activities Monday, June 4.
Huddle Up: Both Thomas and Sanders should be on the field for the mandatory minicamp and will be the team's starting receivers. They saw a dip in their production but should be candidates for bounce back seasons with Case Keenum as the quarterback. Thomas can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver, while Sanders can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver.
Case Keenum - QBPosted 6/2/18 7:08pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Case Keenum has been taking all of the first-team reps during OTAs, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said the exclusive work is paying dividends.
Huddle Up: It's no surprise that Denver is putting emphasis on Keenum learning the offense, and with a solid receiving corps to work with, he could prove last year's breakout in Minnesota was no fluke. Consider him a high-end QB2.
Jeff Heuerman - TEPosted 5/22/18 12:04am ET
Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman is considered to be the 'likely starter' at tight end in 2018, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com. 'I've been fortunate to learn from some older tight ends the last couple of years and I'm ready,' Heuerman said. 'I'm ready to take on that leadership role, that No. 1 role and go from there.'
Huddle Up: With Case Keenum now the starting quarterback in town, tight end could be a position of considerable value after Kyle Rudolph tied for the team-lead last season with eight touchdowns for the Vikings. However, Heuerman doesn't appear to have much potential and can probably be nabbed off the waiver wire after drafts, if desired. Jake Butt probably has the higher ceiling, too.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 5/12/18 6:29pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will have a chance to become a '1B' back to RB Devontae Booker, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com.
Huddle Up: Devontae Booker hasn't exactly stood out when given playing time in the past, and it sounds like Freeman will have the opportunity to earn a meaningful amount of touches. Consider him an upside RB5 for now.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 5/7/18 1:01pm ET
Free-agent RB C.J. Anderson (Broncos) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, May 7, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Anderson will immediately take over the role vacated by Jonathan Stewart. The move hurts Christian McCaffrey's stock a bit, but McCaffrey's main damage is in the passing game anyway and he remains an RB1 candidate in such formats. Anderson is a flex option in standard leagues, while Cameron Artis-Payne is now irrelevant.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 5/3/18 8:06pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is raw, according to general manager John Elway, but Elway said Sutton could develop into a No. 1 receiver.
Huddle Up: Sutton could be limited to mostly red zone work early in his career, but he has long-term upside. He's a late-round flier, at best, in redraft leagues, but a must-own in keeper formats and a borderline first-round option in rookie drafts.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 4/29/18 5:09pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton will compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Sutton probably will be the leading candidate for the job and would have an important role in the passing game if he wins the job. Sutton could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues this upcoming season but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.
DaeSean Hamilton - WRPosted 4/28/18 9:47am ET
The Denver Broncos selected Penn State WR DaeSean Hamilton with the 113th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Hamilton could compete with Courtland Sutton for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp. He probably will not have a big role in the passing game as a rookie and can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Courtland Sutton - WRPosted 4/27/18 4:41pm ET
The Denver Broncos selected Southern Methodist WR Courtland Sutton with the 40th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Friday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Sutton probably will take over the No. 3 receiver job for the Broncos this season behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. He can be a late-round draft choice in standard leagues but more of a middle-round pick in keeper leagues.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 4/27/18 6:43pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will likely compete with RB Devontae Booker for the starting role, according to Mike Klis of 9News.com, but Klis expects Booker to open the season as the starter.
Huddle Up: Booker has battled injuries and has shown little explosiveness when on the field. Even if he does head into Week 1 as the starter, he looks like a RB3.
Royce Freeman - RBPosted 4/27/18 6:32pm ET
The Denver Broncos selected Oregon RB Royce Freeman with the 71st overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Freeman goes to a team in need of running back depth, and he forced the fourth-most missed tackles in the 2018 draft class. He is elusive, and will help the Broncos replace C.J. Anderson.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/16/18 7:40am ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will be released Monday, April 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Anderson had a so-so year, but he rushed for a career-high 1,007 yards, with three scores and a 28-224-1 receiving line. He'll be in the RB3 mix in fantasy in the right situation.
Devontae Booker - RBPosted 4/16/18 7:58am ET
Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker is atop the depth chart after the release of RB C.J. Anderson Monday, April 16.
Huddle Up: This is subject to change as it's possible the team could draft Saquon Barkley if he makes it to No. 5. Booker has rushed for a paltry 3.6 yards per carry in 253 career rushes. If he's in position for a big workload, he'll be an RB3 in fantasy.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/15/18 6:42pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson said he will be at the start of the offseason workout program Monday, April 16, and he is using the rumors that he was being traded as motivation.
Huddle Up: There is still no guarantee that Anderson will be with the Broncos when the season begins, but if he does remain the starter in Denver, he has RB2 potential.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 4/10/18 9:04am ET
The Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins reportedly had a verbal agreement in place to trade RB C.J. Anderson for OT Ja'Wuan James before the Dolphins 'surprisingly nixed' the deal, according to Denver 7's Troy Renck.
Huddle Up: It seems as though Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who was Denver's offensive coordinator for the first two seasons of Anderson's career, has tried to get him to Miami in each of the three years he has been in charge. The report confirms the Dolphins have doubts about committing to Kenyan Drake full-time and the Broncos wouldn't mind parting with Anderson to get out from under the $4.5 million they will open him for the upcoming season.
Demaryius Thomas - WRPosted 3/29/18 8:20pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Carlos Henderson has to win his one-on-one matchups to help out WR Demaryius Thomas and WR Emmanuel Sanders, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'We're counting on that kid to come in and play for us, especially in the slot,' Joseph said.
Huddle Up: Henderson won't have much value in redraft leagues as Denver's third receiver, but he is worth owning in dynasty formats.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 3/28/18 3:49pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is no longer a trade target for the Miami Dolphins since the Dolphins signed Frank Gore.
Huddle Up: Gore likely will be sharing playing time with Kenyan Drake next season and should see a decent amount of touches. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues. Anderson is still with the Broncos at this point, but his status is uncertain. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back if he starts for the Broncos.
C.J. Anderson - RBPosted 3/25/18 7:06pm ET
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson 'may or may not' be back with the team in 2018, general manager John Elway said Sunday, March 25.
Huddle Up: Anderson has RB2 potential if he remains atop the depth chart in Denver's backfield, but his value could drop if he lands elsewhere or if the Broncos add another back early in the draft.
Brandon McManus - PKPosted 3/18/18 4:28pm ET
Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus' $2.25 million salary for 2018 became fully guaranteed on Sunday, March 18.
Huddle Up: McManus, who made just just 75 percent of his field goals in 2017, has seen his total points go down in each of his past two seasons. He ended up with just 99 points in 2017, but could rebound with 100-plus points if the team is better. Kicking well above sea level will always make a Denver kicker a solid fantasy option.
