Broncos | Demaryius Thomas to get franchise tag

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 20:09:10 -0800

The Denver Broncos are expected to use the franchise tag on WR Demaryius Thomas Monday, March 2, all but ensuring the team keeps the wideout for the 2015 season. They are expected to use the "nonexclusive" tag, which makes it possible for other teams to negotiate with Thomas. However, the team has the right to match any offer, and if he is signed away the team is compensated by the signing team with two first-round draft picks.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas appears headed back for Denver for at least one more season and that's great news for his fantasy prospects. Look for what happened to Eric Decker when he left Peyton Manning and the team for Geno Smith and the New York Jets.

Broncos | Peyton Manning to have deal revised?

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 18:12:17 -0800

The Denver Broncos and representatives for QB Peyton Manning are working on revising the veteran's contract, according to multiple league sources. He is scheduled to draw a $19 million salary in 2015 and 2016. Manning has informed the team he intends to keep playing, and the Broncos did not formally interview any quarterbacks at the NFL Combine last week.

Fantasy Tip: Manning started out like a ball of fire last season, but he struggled down the stretch a bit. Still, he should be considered a Top 10 fantasy option at his position heading into 2015. If he his skills have diminished somewhat, he is still better than a third of the other starting quarterbacks in the NFL.

Broncos | Julius Thomas helped in red zone

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 15:21:46 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas could very well be on his way out of Denver this offseason, which would leave a big void for Denver, especially in the red zone. Before Thomas was injured last season, he led the NFL in red zone touchdowns with nine. He was second in the league with a 77 percent touchdown rate in the red zone. Following the injury, the Broncos ended the regular season with a 62 percent touchdown frequency in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will certainly be missed if he does leave Denver, which seems likely. He'll be a big red zone threat no matter who he plays for in 2015 and should retain TE1 status barring any health setbacks this offseason.

Broncos | Michael Schofield could see more time

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:36:45 -0800

Denver Broncos OT Michael Schofield could see a considerable increase in playing time next year with impending free-agent OG Orlando Franklin expected to sign elsewhere. The right tackle position is "a need for us," according to general manager John Elway.

Broncos | Denver likely to lose Terrance Knighton?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 19:08:55 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton is unlikely to be back with the team in 2015, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Klis believes the only chance Denver has of re-signing Knighton is if the market for his services is unexpectedly weak.

Broncos | Julius Thomas likely leaving Denver?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:20:46 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas is unlikely to be re-signed by the team, as his market value will likely exceed what the Broncos are willing to pay. The Broncos tried to sign Thomas to a five-year, $40 million extension last summer, but he wasn't comfortable with the guaranteed money and structuring.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be interesting to see where Thomas lands if he bolts Denver. Not having Peyton Manning throwing to him could negatively affect his value, which is heavily dependent on touchdowns. Be careful not to overvalue Thomas in this year's drafts if he leaves. If Thomas does leave Denver, Virgil Green will be more heavily involved, as would Jacob Tamme, if they both re-sign. Green is more important to the running game, though. Tamme could be worth a flier as a backup tight end if Manning returns.

Broncos | Candidates to be re-signed

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:20:17 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Nate Irving, C Will Montgomery and TEs Virgil Green and Jacob Tamme are priorities to be re-signed this offseason. However, Irving figures to test the free-agent market with LBs Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall set as inside linebackers. Green could take on a much bigger role if TE Julius Thomas leaves via free agency.

Broncos | Sylvester Williams could have bigger role

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 11:04:33 -0800

Denver Broncos DT Sylvester Williams could take on a bigger role on the team next year if impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton walks in free agency. Williams showed improvement last year, and general manager John Elway thinks he can play even better. New defensive line coach Bill Kollar is expected to push Williams to improve.

Broncos | Tag coming for Demaryius Thomas

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 17:04:54 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Demaryius Thomas will have the franchise tag placed on him if the team can't work out a long-term deal in the next few days, according to general manager John Elway. Both sides have had the framework of a five-year deal on the table over the last year. The franchise tag for receivers this year is expected to be in the $12.7 to $12.9 million range.

Fantasy Tip: So Thomas, as expected, will remain in Denver for at least one more season. That'll assure that he will remain an elite WR1 option for fantasy owners if Peyton Manning returns, which seems to be the case. Expect Thomas to come off the board in the late first or early second round of fake drafts.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson must earn starting role

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:12:34 -0800

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson finished the year as the team's No. 1 running back and made the Pro Bowl, but new head coach Gary Kubiak said Anderson must still earn the starting role for the 2015 season. "He's got to go earn that," Kubiak said. "When he walked off the field last year he was playing that way. He's a young player. I told him that when I talked to him. I said, 'C.J. when you come back for the offseason you need to handle yourself like you're the starter.' I think he's ready to do that."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson should enter the offseason and summer workouts as the favorite to remain the team's top back, barring an injury. With a new zone-blocking scheme in place in Denver, it should only make Anderson more intriguing to fantasy owners. There's a possibility that he could be worth as high as a second-round pick this year as an RB1.
