Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:52:45 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Thomas caught only two passes Monday night, but the good news is he was targeted six times. He looks to be getting closer to full health with his ankle, so he should be considered at FantasyScore, especially since he had two TDs the first time Denver played the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas should be a great play in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders. Thomas went over 100 yards receiving without a score against Oakland in their first matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Manning continues to say he's fine physically, it's worth wondering if his thigh ailment played a part in his four-interception Week 16. He has a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders this weekend, so he should be at least a midrange QB1 at FantasyScore.

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot) returned to a full practice Wednesday, Dec. 24. It was Hillman's first full practice since he sprained his foot Nov. 9. "He's obviously further ahead than he was this time a week ago," head coach John Fox said. "The fact that we're on grass, not on (artificial) turf, (there are) a lot of variables, but I like what I see."
Fantasy Tip: Hillman ($5,555) is close to returning to action for the Broncos, but it's unknown if it'll come this week in a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders. He could be eased in in Week 17, but he's unlikely to see enough touches to be a real serious play at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($5,555) has come down to earth a bit in recent weeks, but he remains the team's top back, which counts for a lot in fantasy football. Against the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, he should be a fine play in daily games. Anderson had his coming-out party the first time Denver faced Oakland earlier this year.

Denver Broncos LB Lamin Barrow (illness), LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot), OG Manuel Ramirez (illness) and DT Mitch Unrein (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 24. OT Paul Cornick (toe) and S T.J. Ward (neck) were limited, while S David Bruton (calf), OT Ryan Clady (thigh), OT Chris Clark (back), C Will Montgomery (knee), TE Jacob Tamme (foot), RB Juwan Thompson (hip, knee), CB Kayvon Webster (shoulder) and DE Derek Wolfe (knee) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders' ($5,555) injury isn't expected to keep him out this weekend against the Oakland Raiders. The matchup is a great one for him, so he's a solid option for your FantasyScore lineups in Week 17.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning plans to continue playing in 2015. "I have no plans along those lines (of retiring)," Manning added. "I'm enjoying playing, I'm looking forward to Sunday's game and hopefully the game to follow that." He currently leads the league with 39 touchdown passes, and he could become the first quarterback in league history with three seasons of at least 40 touchdown passes if he throws one in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders. Executive vice president John Elway thinks Manning still "has plenty of great football in him."
Fantasy Tip: Manning is certainly nearing the end of his football career. For fantasy football purposes, he has performed at a high level this year, despite a rough stretch recently. He has a great matchup in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders, but his recent stretch probably won't have you itching to use him at FantasyScore for $5,555.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he's fine physically following the team's Week 17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. In recent weeks, defenses have clogged the middle of the field and forced Manning to take his chances on deep throws down the field, specifically on the sidelines. Manning still leads the league in touchdown throws with 39, but 11 of his 15 interceptions this year have come on the road this year.
Fantasy Tip: Manning ($5,555) returns home to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 17 with a first-round bye on the line. The matchup should help his numbers coming off a four-interception game, but Oakland also presents Denver with the opportunity to run the ball a lot and control the clock. Consider Manning a midrange QB1 at FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas ($5,555) had just two catches (six targets) for 33 yards in the loss Monday night. He hasn't looked right since injuring his ankle over a month ago, and he probably shouldn't even be trusted again next week at FantasyScore against the Oakland Raiders.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw four interceptions in the team's Week 16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22, and Denver's offense has been inconsistent since losing to the New England Patriots in Week 9. Manning has had a QB rating under 90 only nine times in 47 games since joining the team in 2012, and five of those games have come in the last eight weeks. Manning was confused the Cincinnati's defense for most of the first half and often wasn't on the same page with his receivers. Denver's offensive line has had protection issues of late, as well, causing Manning to often make hurried, panicked throws.
Fantasy Tip: Manning ($5,555) is still one of the better quarterbacks in the league, but he may be slowing down as he reaches the end of his career. Even with a fine matchup against the Oakland Raiders in Week 17, you have to question if he'll put up the points to help you win in daily leagues. It could be another contest that'll feature plenty of running from the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the late injury, Sanders had a great game with two touchdown catches in the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night. If he's good to go for the season finale, he should be a solid FantasyScore option for $5,555 against the Raiders.
