Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 27 May 2016 14:22:16 -0700
Denver Broncos WRs Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler are expected to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp. Latimer has performed well during offseason workouts during the last few seasons but has not recorded great numbers during the regular season. Fowler had a decent role in the passing game in 2015 but injuries and inconsistency dropped him on the depth chart.
Fantasy Tip: Fowler has posted better numbers during his career, but Latimer was drafted higher and has performed well during offseason workouts. The Broncos probably will decide the winner of the competition at some point during the preseason, but the winner likely would only be a late-round option in most leagues.

Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (finger) is participating in offseason workouts even though he has not signed a contract with the team at this point. He signed a waiver to allow him to participate in the organized team activities. He does have an offer on the table worth $2.533 million since he was tendered as a restricted free agent, but he likely will not receive a long-term deal until the team signs LB Von Miller.

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday, May 25, that competition is open at quarterback in organized team activities. However, QB Mark Sanchez's experience gives him the clear edge over QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch despite not having started a season opener since 2012. Sanchez must perform in training camp to hold the other two young QBs off. If he wins the job, Sanchez must limit turnovers during the season to keep the job.
Fantasy Tip: Just like they did in their 2015 Super Bowl run, the Broncos are expected to lean on a strong defense and the run game to succeed. Sanchez is expected to start and take on a game-manager role, which limits his fantasy upside despite a strong receiving corps at his disposal. The fact that his leash will be short and that he's struggled with consistency since early in his career makes him a midrange fantasy backup, at best.

Fantasy Tip: Green is expected to receive more pass-catching opportunities this season, but he'll have to compete with Garrett Graham and Jeff Heuerman, too. None of the three should be considered a TE1.

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian started with the first-team offense for the first day of organized team activities. Head coach Gary Kubiak said the quarterback competition is open but praised all of the quarterbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Of course, Mark Sanchez isn't able to fully practice yet. He's likely the favorite to start, but either Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian could impress enough to win the job. Whoever starts won't be worth starting as a fantasy quarterback, though.

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (knee) has been doing almost all of the drills the other running backs are doing in organized team activities, and it looks like he's close to 100% in his recovery from a knee injury in college.
Fantasy Tip: Booker, if healthy, could wind up being one of the bigger steals of the draft. He has the tools to be an every-down back in the NFL eventually. He'll start the 2016 season behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, but he could eventually force his way into considerable touches if those in front of him are injured or aren't producing. In deeper leagues he's worth an RB5 flier.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is slightly limited in OTAs, but the only thing that really matters is that he should be a full go for training camp this summer. He's in position to win the starting quarterback job unless Paxton Lynch really puts on a clinic and unexpectedly forces Denver's hand. Sanchez is more of a game manager and won't be asked to push the ball downfield too often, limiting his fantasy ceiling to that of a midrange backup.
