Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:34:46 -0700
Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels has mostly been used as a blocker to help a struggling offensive line, but he has caught touchdown passes in back-to-back games. Daniels expects more two-tight end formations with one running back because those plays have been the most successful for them this year. That formation is also a staple of head coach Gary Kubiak's offenses. Daniels is also expecting to see the ball more when the run game starts to succeed. "I think we can get him involved more," Kubiak said. "That's a nice problem to have. You're trying to get those guys touches so they can affect the football game." The Broncos face the Oakland Raiders in Week 5, and Oakland has allowed an NFL-most 388 yards and six touchdowns to tight ends in four games this year.
Fantasy Tip: With TDs in back-to-back games, Daniels ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is probably a popular waiver wire pickup this week. He's also an excellent value play on FantasyScore this weekend against the Raiders because of there aforementioned weakness against tight ends so far.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has thrown interceptions in each of the first four games of the year for the first time since 2001. The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck thinks Manning's interceptions will drop once the Broncos are able to establish the run and open up more play-action plays.
Fantasy Tip: Manning ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) has five interceptions in the first four games and has looked pretty bad at times in the offense with the lack of a running game to help him out. It won't always be pretty for the 39-year-old, but he's still certainly capable of putting up QB1 numbers regularly. He's a fine investment on FantasyScore in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders, who allow 24.0 fantasy points to signal callers per game this year.

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is still considered the starting running back by head coach Gary Kubiak, but RB Ronnie Hillman has "earned the right" to see more chances. The running game should continue to improve as the offensive line adapts and improves, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Troy E. Renck. Both Anderson and Hillman will continue to be used, and whichever has the hot hand in a particular game will likely end up with a few more carries. Both Anderson and Hillman had 11 carries each in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Tip: It's really hard to trust Anderson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) right now in any format, and Hillman ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) seems to have a leg up in fantasy circles based on results alone. Facing the Oakland Raiders in Week 5 could help both backs be productive, but Hillman seems like the much wiser choice on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos play the Oakland Raiders in Week 5, and Oakland has been kind to opposing tight ends this year, surrendering a league-high 388 yards and six touchdowns to the position so far. Daniels ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) makes for a good value play on FantasyScore in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was able to return to the game after he suffered the injury and should be fine moving forward. Thomas has posted solid numbers so far this season and should be a solid starting option most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Latimer is able to practice this week. He has posted only 23 yards this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) split carries right down the middle with Ronnie Hillman ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), and the latter was way more productive. If the split continues, Hillman is the better FantasyScore option.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman had 11 carries for 103 yards in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, and the highlight of his day was a 72-yard touchdown. He also had a five-yard reception on his only target.
Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) split carries right down the middle with C.J. Anderson ($5,900, 11.8% of cap). If the split continues, Hillman is the better value in FantasyScore going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) failed to live up to his FantasyScore salary, but he should have a bounce-back game in Week 5 against an Oakland Raiders pass defense which has been very leaky.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 19:11:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While Daniels ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) didn't do much for FantasyScore players in this one, you'll want to give him a long look in Week 5. The Oakland Raiders have allowed an NFL-high six touchdown receptions by opposing tight ends through four games.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings defense did a good job throwing Manning ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) off of his game and he did not come close to earning his FantasyScore salary in this one. He'll look to rebound in Week 5 on the road against the Oakland Raiders.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (neck) left the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings briefly due to a neck injury, but he was able to return in the second half and he finished the game.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) still managed to post team highs with nine receptions and 93 yards, although he failed to find the end zone. He is a must-start FantasyScore option regardless of the opponent.
