Denver Broncos news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Booker is of the same running back mold as Ronnie Hillman, and he gives the Broncos more versatility in the backfield. C.J. Anderson will still be the main man, and Hillman will play a significant complementary role, but Booker is a good deep sleeper consideration with more value in PPR formats.

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez does have the edge right now and is the safer starting option for the Broncos in 2016. It's important for Lynch to become acclimated to Denver's offense and the feel of the NFL this year. Lynch is likely the future of Denver's quarterback position, but his growth process will take some time. Sanchez is not a QB1 and should only be started as a bye-week replacement in good matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez should be considered the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but he would be a lower-end QB2. Lynch has intriguing potential in dynasty and keeper leagues, but he may need at least a year to develop.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford are unlikely to be pursued by the Denver Broncos after the team selected QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, but Denver could still add a veteran quarterback at some point.
Fantasy Tip: Lynch is no lock to start as a rookie, and even if he does beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting gig, he would be a low-end QB2.

The Denver Broncos acquired the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for the 31st overall pick and a third-round pick, 94th overall. The Broncos selected QB Paxton Lynch with the pick.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch could have the best physical attributes of any of the quarterbacks in this year's draft, and he fits Gary Kubiak's system better than Connor Cook would have. However, Mark Sanchez should still be expected to earn the starting job to start the year, but a change could be made to Lynch if Sanchez struggles. His mental side is in question, which makes him a bit of a wild card in the long term. Lynch won't be anything more than a low-end QB2 if he's playing in his rookie year.

Fantasy Tip: Denver has been searching for a quarterback throughout the offseason, and the Broncos could be moving up to address the need in the draft. Any quarterback Denver adds early in the draft would likely compete with Mark Sanchez for the starting job.

Denver Broncos franchise free-agent LB Von Miller said negotiations on a long-term deal with the Broncos are "just business." "My teammates know what type of teammate I am," Miller said. "They know what type of guy I am. It's just the business part of it. There's really no hard feelings or anything like that. (The Broncos) know what type of guy I am. I'm expecting a deal any day. That's just the type of mindset I have."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a mid-to-low QB2 with the Eagles but would receive an uptick with a move to the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Cook would have a solid stable of receivers like Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders at his disposal if he lands in Denver, and that's good news for his long-term fantasy prospects. However, with veteran Mark Sanchez in town it would likely be a sit-and-learn situation for at least a year.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is viewed by most as the third-best quarterback available in this year's draft. If he is selected by Denver it isn't likely he starts immediately with veteran Mark Sanchez on the roster.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford remains a trade target of the Denver Broncos, and a league source said Wednesday, April 27, that the Broncos "are in" on the quarterback. Broncos general manager John Elway has spoken with Eagles general manager Howie Roseman about Bradford, although the team has not expressed a willingness to deal the signal caller.
Fantasy Tip: A move to Denver would be giant for Bradford's fantasy appeal, as he would have a better set of wide receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and a little more long-term stability. Stay tuned.

Fantasy Tip: There could still be a successful trade, but it just doesn't seem likely to happen this weekend. Kaepernick has QB1 potential with the 49ers or Broncos, but it's safer to take him as a backup fantasy quarterback.
